Well... If you want images of early Samurai armour (or are they haiken? DW6 has two separate references), you could try the late Angus McBride's efforts...

...and here we have 10th Century Taira clan bushi...
(Note that the swords of this era are still straight. Some - especially if special - may survive into later centuries.)

...and why not round it off with some late 11th Century Minamoto clan samurai, featuring; a sohei with a naginata, a lord wearing o-yoroi armour and holding a daikyu bow, and a samurai serving tea (with a tachi at his belt)?
