This is an interpretation of an Italio-Norman spade faced phrygian helmet that I recently completed as part of a trade. It is severely modified in overall shape and design in order that it can pass inspection for SCA combat.

The skull is a 2 piece bowl that I purchased. I've dished enough of my own by now that I prefer to let someone else handle the 'grunt' work so I can spend more energy on the details.

The mail drape attached to it is one of Master Knut's welded stainless aventails. So I can't take credit for it either (beyond mounting it on the helmet anyway).

The helmet is constructed from various thicknesses of mild steel ranging from 16 gage to 10 gage depending on location and application. The brass is all recycled kick plates for doors.

The pierce work was done with a jewelers saw and needle files. The engraved lines were done with a customized cold chisel.

And despite my complete lack of photographic skill, I think this is both an impressive and intimidating shot.

This is the first gun I attempted to make in the steampunk style. It was a learning experience, so there are some things that ended up not exactly as I would have liked, and I'm considering taking off all the bits and pieces and using them on a new stock and barrel.

My latest steampunk grasshopper. This one's slightly longer and has gold joints for extra bling. He's also been sold already. These little dudes are popular :)

Finally painted the mech I designed for the Gruntz game rule set. This really is a very well done miniature! Here's original concept art...

Another gun in the steampunk vein, this one inspired by the slim, sleek Queen Anne pistols from the golden age of piracy.

The whole thing started around the desire to use the main gearbox from a $5 vintage desk clock as the firing mechanism of a gun.

A few handles were scrapped for not looking "quite right" until one just presented itself through an accidental jigsaw cut and a slimmer than drawn design happened to fit just right.

The barrel was turned from a wooden dowel, with a drill and a bolt (as I don't have access to a lathe) then weathered with black and metalizer paint, using the crumpled plastic bag dabbing method.

The push-button trigger is inspired by typewriter keys, and fashioned from an old aircraft rivet.

I remember back in the day wishing for a day when Victorian furniture would come back with a minimalistic approach. But finding Victorian furniture in the 90s though the early 2000s was almost impossible. But finally its much easier to come across gloss black Victorianism things, so I'm grateful for tron or whatever might have brought this about. So when i was being disappointed in Deus Ex unbelievably honorably below bland story, and frustrated at such a missed opportunity, i simply admired the design and music because those seemed to be the only two groups of people who were trying. Then i saw His Tri-Blue Candelabra on his table in the apartment ... as such all my old desires of building said "modernized" Victorian furniture to life came back with a simple thought ... "this would be easy to make" And thus i made a real life count part in a mater of min. Not to mention some wall mounted candlesticks to match as well. It is made from a shiny gloss black tri- candelabra stick, ( good for not having to paint ), then a pack of three universal LED click lights, and warped wax stylized paper and slipped it in the lights gaps and WALLA
