I've added another picture of 14th century great helms to the first post, including one with a rather impressive (and slightly lobsided ) crest.
I think great helms would be the best to wear cuz they look like they would provide the most defense

Which is one of the reasons why after 1350 AD (or thereabouts) they were only used for tournements and lighter, more flexible helmets such as bascinets, then later sallets and armets were used instead.
I'd like to see The Hound's black snarling-dog helm from A Song Of Ice And Fire.

In fact the decoration and embossing compromises their defensive properties.Here you go, click on the thumbnails: I suppose these would fit into the "other" category as "Renaissance parade helmets".
Really cool stuff, except for this one:Quote from: Aqtai on June 09, 2007, 03:28:41 PM Seriously, WTF?And yeah, they really don't have much of a place in native M&B. I would like to try modelling one of those some day, though.
