Helm of the Necromancer

Douglas Herring brings us this nicely done necromantic helm.

A classic necromancer’s helm is pretty impressive; the selection of horns and the fine leather work. You need to wear a beard with this helm and have wisps of wild hair escaping from under the cap. Presentation is important when a deranged necromancer is trying to wow the throngs.

When I first clapped eyes on the mystic chapeau, I immediately thought of Tim the Enchanter from Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie.

Some call him... Tim?

"There are those who call me...Tim."

Lovely work though.

A nice piece! I really like it, but some staining of the leather would have made it even much better.

I suppose this inevitably leads us to suggesting a repro prop of the Holy Handgrenade of Antioch … just remember to count to three.

Of course, it is a satire on a globus cruciger, which is not in the least explosive, at least in the manner depicted, but consider a prop with something interesting encased or imprisoned inside.
