Variant helmet
« on: Apr 08, 2020, 04:46 PM »
Hey vod. I'm looking at getting a Variant Helmet from the iron forge. I'm curious how much work it is to finish a DIY version of the helmet. Is it more than just cutting the visor area out and some light sanding? Thanks in advance for any input you all can give.

You nailed the amount of work on the head. Most cast helmets just need that visor cut out, some cleaning to remove the casting agent, then sanding any other imperfections before you go to paint.

Ok awesome. That is what I was hoping. I think I can put in that extra work to save a hundred bucks
