    A good friend of mine, Brian BigWater99, has just finished up his Rohlan Dyre Project. He did two versions of the helmet, the Tolibao and the Ching.

    For the last few weeks I have been seeing this project unfold through my correspondence with Brian.

    I offered to post threads about it in a few places and see if I could generate some interest for his pieces.



    Folks I give you a helmet designed and sculpted by BigWater99, who makes some of the most marvelous helms you will find out there. His RC, Revans, and Nihilus are all impeccable and he has a penchant for doing multiple versions of helms.

    I give you pics of the Brian Ching nearly finished as well as the pics of the kit form (horns and respirators will be included, dents will be up to you to add, this helm is painted in basic Rohlan colors, respirators not yet added).

    Please get in touch with me if any of you are interested. I will have a final price and pictures with the respirator Monday.


    So without further ado.

    The Brian Ching Rohlan Dyre helm by BW99!
    Kit form (horns and respirators not shown)




    Painted up to show you how it can look once done up






    After I have a final price I will post Brian's contact info, I only ask that anyone who gets one from him say they found his helm through me since he is going to reward me with a gifty if enough people come to grab em because of me ^_^


    I hope you enjoy,

    And here are some back dated pics, one of his sculpt and one of the concept drawings for the two helmets.


    In this concept drawing the Harvey Tolibao is on the left, the Brian Ching is on the right.


    And here is what it looked like when he was in the sculpting phases of the project!

    Looking pretty good! I did that concept sketch (heavily leveraging the original artwork of course), which was posted this thread:

    Nice to see your friend is trying both designs.

    I did not know you did the concept sketches, he never mentioned where he got them, glad to meet the original artist!

    Good work and nice to see he did it justice, the respirators are being molded and cast tonight, I will post pics of the finished helm when he sends some to me.

    More news both good and bad.


    The Tolibao will be cast this week, I did not get the type of visor he uses but if you get a kit you can ask for either dark or green. The greebles will be cast and finished and added to the painted one tonight. The great news is these are not resin, they are fiberglass, that's right 3 layers thick of glass! His exact words were, this thing is tough, you could probably toss it against the wall for battle damage though i don't suggest it.


    Now the bad, kits are going to be $175 considering it is triple layer glass. Thats a good price for a heavy duty helm kit and it will come with your choice of visor color. Now the fully airbrush finished ones will be a bit more and he has asked I do not quote a price on those until he is sure of what he wants. His list is growing so the sooner they are ordered the better, anyone with a genuine interest should PM me for details on how to contact him.
