The Dremmel decided to have some fun again. Here is the helmet to the Dragon Hilord Corinthia I made a while back. I painted a Purple Great Helm I got as a freebie and used a black sharpie for the designed part. The holes were drilled a little at a time so that the horns would fit snug. I started with 3/64'' and worked up to 1/8''. Enjoy.

Very cool look. The Brickforge horns are awesome for this. Also, thanks for putting the drill bit sizes you used, that should help me with my project!

I thought the horns the Forge produced were a lot smaller. I think I know a few items on my next purchase list! Thanks QB!

Thanks for all the comments. Seeing the response this got makes me wish I had done a better job on it. Next time, I will use a different colored helmet as a base, make sure the horns line up properly, trim the inserted part of the horns slightly, and refrain from using a sharpie. The person who plays this character on NWN liked it so much, that he used it as his background on his iphone. I see roome for further improvement, so who knows what I'll do in the future.
