New helmet
« on: 2019-08-09, 15:47:36 »
Hey guys,
I'm looking for a crusader helmet. (Battle ready)
Does anyone have experience with helmets from historical marshal? 
 I want a good finish.
I want a symmetrical shape.
I was thinking about "crusader spangen helmet"

Thank you,

Jan

What is your budget and what crusade are you going for?

So mid-12th century, 300eur or less, no particular place of origin, and no need to actually fight with it under a specific set of rules?
