These type of early bascinets look really goofy to me, this period was really like the 1970's, a fashion wasteland. In fact this type of bascinet looks like a 1970's conception of a UFO space helmet.
I notice this first guy has a nice holbein / baselard dagger though.
And quite a formidable looking axe.
I also like this guys armor.
Do you thnk he wore that Heaume over his Bascinet?
