    Jun 6, 2012, 11:02 AM - A good starting point? #1

    I'm a noob and am looking to start a build. I was thinking of the bucket being my first purchase. My question is since I'm a bigger dude (6'4" 230) what bucket would be the best choice for my big melon (my hat size is 7 5/8).

    Send ASOK a PM. He may be able to help you, and he makes a GREAT cold cast helmet.

    Cold cast is resin with a high metal content.
    It is cast like any other resin, but appears to be metal and can be polished like metal.

    If you're worried about waiting time then ASOK will probably be your best bet for a nice FP CC Budget Helmet but I don't know if that would fit your melon but I'm sure you can ask. Your other options are the top dogs Fettpride (FP) and Bobamaker (BM). For more affordable starter armor you should give Redkraytdragon (RKD) a pm, hes more interested in helping getting what armor you want and in Large Templates. You can buy raw pieces from them and have members paint them for you. I'd recommend looking at others WIP/builds and seeing how much you like their work and then you can make a decision on what you want. Usually they will tell you where they got their parts from and who painted them etc. Good luck man! Might have missed something but any more questions just send me a pm and I'll try to save ya some time!
