Holy necromancy batdude! Glad to see you back at it!

I tend to skew more towards bards and rogues, but necromancers are cool too! ;)

Mandos are kind of roguishly bardish.
Havenít seen much of a following for Phase II Vizsla helmets as of the last year or so. Iíll follow your build with some interest as I happen to be building a new master for mould purposes and am even close to finishing.

Can't wait to see it! This one is from the original Skirata Arms (now HeadShot Props) run back in the day. It's got a handful of imperfections, but really is a very solid and wonderful bucket.

Other than squaring off the mandibles and some paint touchups, not really. I'm working to pad the inside and will probably get around to a fan, because the interior is pretty roomy. My kit's color scheme will remain the same, though.

UPDATE TO AVOID DOUBLE POSTING:

Got some more padding to keep it secure on my head. Might still add a bit in the cheeks, but undecided currently. Also got my visor clips came in the mail and while they were a little difficult to install (mostly because I superglued my fingers together) I think they really clean up the interior.


Annnnnd with the visor installed!

Thanks! Without doing so, reinstalling my visor would've been a lot harder than it was. I still need to touch up the paint on the mandibles, but I'm really satisfied with how the Aves helped me shape them.

Very nice dude! I wish I could get that "blaster hit" look.  I'm still no good with burn marks, lol

Thanks! Honestly it was just a matter of masking a little bit and then I went really heavy on the blackwash on the edges, roughing it up with a little sandpaper to really give that "carbon scoring" look. I'm actually really proud of how the big bolt hit turned out.

I absolutely LOVE the Viszla MKII style helmet, and I love how it is looking so far!

Does HeadShot Props still sell the helmet?

I believe Eternal armories has that mould now. And theyíre currently not taking orders.

From what I've read, bowfanny is correct as best I can tell. It sitting on my shelf half-finished for so many years finally shamed me into giving it a nice suit of beskar to go underneath it. I'm really grateful I was able to get in on the first run.
