What I find striking about this image is that, though it doesn't bear much relation to what soldiers were wearing at Verdun, it's not at all unlike what their ancestors were wearing at Crecy and Poitiers.

Swap the helmet and mask for a bascinet and the army boots for a pair of metal sabotons and he's ready for the 14th century, like this guy:
