    Is there a good version of the helmet used by Maximus in the movie Gladiator? Are they wearable or just display?

    I'm sure he was just ribbing you a little.

    Okay. First, which helmet were you after? The Maximus Generals helmet or the arena helmet? If you're looking for the Generals, I can direct you to the perfect place. The arena one...wow. There are SO mnay out there ranging from 40.00 to 400.00.

    FJ speaks the truth (and has suffered way too much of my dribble around this joint!)...

    Yes - the Factory X (for whatever that's worth) has been around for years now. Plus I've seen at least a couple fan-made versions.

    Can't say I've ever seen the Gerneral helmet though...

    Ask and you shall recieve: http://www.swordsofhonor.com/crgrhe.html
    That's the exact same helmet worn by Crowe as a general. The only thing missing is the wolf's head crest. If you want exact details on the costumes, you should contact stephen210 here on the RPF. He bores, um, EDUCATES me on all the little mundane details from helmets to swords to uniforms every time I go over!

    LOL thanks Funky.

    If someone wants to scuplt the wolf head.... I can have it cast in metal at a very reasonable cost.
    Here are some shots.







    I love this stuff.

    "Did I also see a Kurgan helmet in the mix as well? " Yes you did. Sculpted by a member here. I would say it is one of my favorites.

    The Max helmet is very heavy too.

    So, whats the story with the Max helmet?
    Was it purchased/found item and then modified? or did another company make it after the movie?
    The reason I ask is that the cheek guards on Max's helmet look rounded on the rear-facing sides and the swordsofarmor one looks "pointy".
    Either way, I love it and am begging the wife to get it for my B-Day.

    BTW, I know an expert animal artist that could sculpt that wolf-head emblem in short order, but she would want compensation.
    Any ideas?

    From what I have found out. A lot of the helmets were based off of the ROMAN LEGIONARY standard helmet. Such as, the Gladiator helmet they add the face part and the spikes the General helmet they add the front brow and different details. The Windlass replica was made after the fact and would have some differences since it is not a offical copy I would think.

    Fnd out what this person would need to do the wolf. Never hurts to ask.

    Cant hurt to ask.
    First, I will need to know the exact dimension of the space it fits on the helmet.
    Width & Length.

    BTW, I just bought one off of EvilBay for $255.00
    He has more, I believe.

    Maybe try a found object like this http://www.willowstreasures.com/imag...and%20Wolf.jpg
    and add your own decorative art work below.

    Hey Tim how to you get your work cast in metal. What did you sculpt in, clay or wax, and what type of clay, or wax, or what ever the material was.
    Ball park cost also.
    Thanks
