Imperial gallic - new version of old work
#1
hello

here's my new imperial-gallic helmet ...it's some variation of oryginal stuff from Meinz
...this one is welded (3 pieces - the bowl with neck-guard)

however I made hammered surface only (similar to many oryginal helmets) ...in my opinion it looks much better for this kind of the helmet than smooth satin surface - popular in reenacment Smile ) D

"V" sighns on the cheekpieces are made for customer's wish

more pictures are able here:

I notice you've made the earguards from iron. Is that from a specific example?

I know of a Gallic D (Weisenau), destroyed in WWII which has iron earguards, at least to the Lindenschmidt Paper describing it.

I believe the gallic F from Bescancon had iron earguards too.

I send you a PM!

I think Peronis or even Brian Stobbs may have a copy, but you would need to ask them.
So when are you going to attempt the brow chevrons? :twisted: Smile

Yeah, thats the helmet I was talking about. But there are also some errors in that drawing. The original had no visible rivets to attach the earguards and the crestsplate. It also has a rope style edge. (yeah, I'm working on a repro of that particular helmet myself, at the moment.)

I believe there are colour photographs of the Imperial Gallic 'D' helmet on the Armamentarium website.

That is really quite beautiful Patryk- very well done. And I completely agree about the imperfect finish- hand grinding sure wouldn't produce perfectly smooth surfaces, especially on a shape like a helmet :wink:

Here is the start of the edging of mine, which I just started working on:

wanted to do a rope style design, but thought about starting with a plain one instead, would be much better. Can always change it.
