Does anyone know which is the correct length of the black plumes in the Roman style helmet that carries the Senate Guard Episode 1?
And just ask, there is an angle to place?

Thanks!!!

Hi ! I calculated all the dimension of the helmet to make my one.

So, for me, the plumes are 15cm long at the top of the helmet, and 7,5cm, the half, at the bach of the neck. They are not the same length all the way, it's a gradient.


I don't have my measurments rigth now. I need te find them at home. Maybe I will have them tomorrow. But if I remember well, the é crest are separated of a 40° angle. So 45° would be good baecause there is a little variation on my measurments due to the pictures resolutions.



If you have other question, ask me Wink

No problem ! Just send pictures and i will Wink

Which way are you sculpting the helmet ? / the crest ?

Edit : Some pictures you could use :
All the reference pictures I get :

I numerise on of my book to get better resolution pics :
https://picasaweb.google.com/106167927528037966982/ScanDossierOfficiel?authkey=Gv1sRgCOCDu8alppi_OA#5414740894701289202

From the side you can well seen the gradient length of crest. And on the second one from front, you see well the 40° angle (a little bit less than 45)
But from the other picture at the bottom left, you can see closer crest, about 20°

You can see here my making process :

I recommend you to put into the helmet some velvet like i did :

Because we don't have a visor, the people can see, particularly by the side, inside the helmet, and if it's not beautiful, that's little bit bad. It makes the helmet more "glorious" and ceremonial. It's not a heavy velvet i put, something really light, and it's not warm. Also, it's softer to touch than any inside you could get (fiberglass for exemple).

I take the cheaper velvet i found that was blue/ dark blue/ black, and which look "ceremonial" "senatorial" "royal"



To finish : my prefered reference pictures :



Good luck



@JedHead : Could you make good resolution screenshots, i don't get the blu rays, or anything to read them.
