Are they OOP?  I don't see them on the Meridian website.


No idea, I picked them up of ebay last year.

I have vague memories of a Kickstarter, I thought successful; may never have made it to 'production.'

If so, bit sad. I've been known to back on mere hope it will be available as needed, not just a 'one time.'

Beautiful work. The faces on your 15mm figures make my 28mm ones look like they've been painted with a roller.  Lovely stuff. I'd be interested in how you approach faces in general.

The helmets on the last couple you posted look suspiciously modern. They look to be based on the Kirby-Morgan bandmask I used to use back in a past life...

I don't like these Malifaux minis, but your painting is ACE!  ;)

Thanks! I never had a name for those. Of course, yours weren't bronze or brass, though 'skull fitting' is a bit hard to imagine in the time. Ah, suspension of disbelief is easier for some of us.  ;)

And, of course, Deano works, and very well at that(!), with what he has.

I tend to avoid 'me too' responses, but I get to end them that way.  ;D

Hi Doug, here is a pic of the Kirby Morgan, the design has changed little from the 1950s when it was introduced...the round brass "standard" diving helmet is still used in some parts of the world.

http://www.kirbymorgan.com/products/bandmasks/bandmask-28

It's called a bandmask because it is held to the head by the large rubber bands that clip around it's edge. It is basically just an airtight faceplate, not a full helmet.
