Hey guys, this is my first post so don't hate me!
So I'm starting my first IG army and I want it to be Vietnam themed. I've already mixed the Catachan and Cadians together, but my only problem are the M1 Helmets they used in the war. I just got my order of 10 from The Assault Group, but they're too small. I was wondering if you guys had any ideas on what I could do?
The easiest thing to do would be to make your own. Use greenstuff and make a mold, then once you have that mold and got the helmets to where you like it, you can mass produce them easily. Here's a link on how to make them. www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwzJkE2gKhA

Why not modify the existing guardsmans helmets by simplifying the helmet to look more like the jam era m1 pot... I recommend removing the aquilla, electronics box on the back and tje ear cups either side to make a rounded version... then camo paint the helmet to look like the leaf pattern they used. Il try it later if you like to see the results... I have to do a few myself like that

I actually did this conversion not long ago. With a little additional green-stuff added to the front it looks very convincing...
Basically cut off all the bits that stick out and then cut down the base of the helmet, sand, add green stuff, and your done

wow guys thanks. I like the look of the modified Guardsman head, I think I'll be trying that and making my own M1's. Also I read on Dakka Dakka last night that West Wind Studio heads fit really well with Guardsmen so I'll be checking them out too. Seeing as I'm on here, how do I activate my account?
