Making Pre-Heresy 'T' pattern helmets

You know those 'T' helmets you commonly see on the Chaos Space marine sprues? Well I thought it would be cool to have them on my Blood Angels.

Here's how you do it:

1. Cut off the side bits on a normal Space Marine helmet. 

2. Small ball of putty on his mouth. 

3. Flatten out the sides so that you get a distinct raised area in the center. 

4. Make a line in the center with a straight edged tool. 

5. Grab an even smaller ball of putty and place it on his eyes. Flatten it out and integrate it with the rest of the area. 

6. With a straight edged tool, make a single line to form his eyes. 

7. Smooth and clean everything up. Make sure the line of the eyes joins up with the line of his mouth, forming a 'T'. 

Well wasn't that easy?


  1. ah, this is great! I love helmets with that style. I will have to try this on my own marines.

  2. Thanks...uh Moron? Should I really be calling you that?

    I always wondered why you don't see loyalist marines with these helmets, even in GW artwork.
