quietly frustrated by my lack of progress with my Navy uniform (although I've recently been given some great advice from toydivision- thank you
) I decided to tidy up a few things and do some sorting at home...
I found an old bobby helmet from the Cumbrian Constabulary.
I felt, if I replaced the helmet plate with one of Finnlock's large Aquila's... it could be used for a Pretorian regiment that wasn't the 24th. The British Army wears what they call a "Home service helmet" which is a blue cloth.
Obviously that picture represents old uniforms but we still wear them today for ceremonial purposes.
ANYWAY, I was thinking of making this helmet and perhaps even adding the spike to the top... obviously it's a bobby helmet so it's different from a "blue cloth" but for costume purposes it could work quite well, I think...
But the ultimate question is "should I bother?"
People are prepared to accept multiple colours of uniforms for the Mordians (that's why I made mine the colours it is) but would people accept the Pretorians with a blue helmet over a white one?
Technically there are at least 23 other Pretorian regiments available but it's down to what you chaps think as costumers, gamers, fans etc...
