At last we'll be able to depict figures with chicken wire covered helmets! In the past they've been a vague suggestion and no amount of effort trying to paint it has worked because they're so indistinct. They also seem to only cover part of the helmet which makes them even worse. These look nice and positive so a bit of drybrushing will pay dividends by the looks of it. With them being hollow means full head and partial heads can be used. I'll pick a few of these up :-)

Outstanding in theory. I will try a set and see how they work on figures. They have to be the right size and proportionality.

Live Resin makes these in two slighly different sizes.

The thing is these helmets are made by 3D scanning of the real helmet, so I would say they are the right size, scaled down to 1/35. It is the figures which vary in size...

These will work great with the new liners also being offered!
