    Hello everyone,

    The gondorian helm reach France! Here is the pids of 2 gondorian, I bought 1 for a friend.
    As you can see there is small defect!! The nose of one is not straight and the other is darker and have some rust point.
    I am wondering if send back or not.
    The number is 0021 and 0124.

    Those wing pieces look much straighter than the first pics I saw from other owners. I guess quality varies a bit, but they look much smoother and better attached than other pics I've seen. Congrats!

    I got one of those infantry helms in from CBswords today. 0695 of 2000.
    It is a little bigger than I was expecting. I am impressed. I will try to have
    some pictures taken.

    Hi Eldorias,

    I wouldn't send them back if I were you. the color may be slightly differant between the two, and the nose angled slightly differant on one than the other, but I don't think that that detracts from them. Besides, you got very good low numbers on them.

    You said one was for a friend, so in the long run, no one will see them side by side again and the differances are slight enough that if you don't see them together you would not notice it. Pick the one you like best, and give your friend the other.

    Besides, If you think about it, if these were helms that had been produced in quantity by hand for an ancient army, they would have differances like this. The color would be differant because of age and usage and the nose guards would have to be angled diffferantly to accomodate the face of the person wearing them. It makes them seem a bit more *Real* if you know what I mean.
