Deepeka Helmets a question?!

Postby Aerdernix MacDane on March 20th, 2017, 4:01 pm

Hi I am searching for a celtic helmet (3rd century bc; continental)

Are deepeka's helmets any good?

The armae helmet (the one on the top) takes 15 weeks and I can't wait that long *cry* .

A guy in my group had this helmet. I can't say it's wrong, but it's not very accurate and, most of all, it is really HUGE, so we had to put a lot of stuffing inside and, in the end, to reshape it in a different model.

On this Italian website

http://www.res-bellica.com/categoria-pr ... hita-elmi/

you can find some standard Deepeka helmets and some higher quality (and higher price) bronze helmets. I saw some of them live and they are worth the price.

No idea about delivering time, but i guess it will take much less than 3 months!

I ordered from Res Bellica and was good experience. I got the one pictured below. It is a little big for me, though I blame myself for reading the measurements. The Deepeeka Montefortino is small by comparison. They are all good workmanship none the less.

Is the montefortino helmet any good?
I am thinking about buying a montefortino helmet instead (maybe the wulflund one or the deepeka one). https://www.wulflund.com/armour/helmets ... lmet.html/
