Mods- Please move this if it's not in the right place.

This is a mod- not a weapon mod though. I was told it was inaccurate with the horns. Anyway, without further ado:

Hope you like it!

While it's true that Vikings never had horns on their helmets, this still looks great!

Whilst it is true that the "historical" Vikings in the 750 to 1100 period did not wear "Horns" on their helmets. Some of their ancestors in the "Bronze Age" did. Several excellent examples are on display in the Danish Natonal Museum in Copenhagen ( Kobenhaven) . Along with an inspirational display of other weapons and archeological finds!

Thank you for that bit of information. Any thoughts on the mod? BTW- the link doesn't work. (BrickShelf doesn't do pics other than ones that use lego in them)

Are the horns attached with glue, or is there holes drilled in the sides of the helm? It looks good. I bet adding the BF horns and having them at an angle would make an awesome looking helm. Hmmm....maybe I should try.

I can't view the link, but I've been to that museum, and I seem to recall seeing helmets with long, twisted horns on them. This was a long time ago (and my memory isn't what it once was), but I thought they were ceremonial helms rather than fighting ones.

Not to hijack your topic, I tried to do my own, inspired by your attempt. I'm not completely satisfied with the result, but I feel it is far from being considered a fail. The horn on the left was a perfect fir, but the one on the right was too loose. Glue might have fixed the issue or trimming down the horn, but I didn't want to do that for this at least yet. I used safety glasses and even gloves when dremmeling because I slipped the first time and didn't want a hole in my finger ;9
