OH wow they are awesome! Would you like to make one for my human team and actual HLP contenders? American Gladiators I promise to donate a 5$ to the fumbbl community for such job!

I'd choose the bottom left helmet (spiked mouth guard with rounded helmet spikes). I'd use my team logo on the flank of the helmet, font color a dirty (grey-ish) white. Mouth guard color red and the rounded spikes and helmet trim as blue!

Thank you very much if you do so Wink


@latulike quite busy with work ATM - wouldn't want to make you wait an age - here's the original PNG should you want to experiment with colourways and textures in the meantime:

This helmet style was traditionally used by ogres and orcs for the cover art Image of the 2nd edition BB game books however I noticed you have an ogre in your squad - so I say go for it.

Strong roster BTW - good luck in the HLP.

@harvestmouse thanks in advance for doing the upload.

And to everyone else thanks for all the positive feedback.

Finally, I'm going to try and come up with something for Skaven coaches that marries up with the existing original 2nd ed BB helm styles over the Xmas break.

Gluf & Hoof folks,

@ArrestedDevelopment top job! Would have taken me much longer - faffing about image googling for textures. How did you create the grime and blood spatters?

@latulike I'm Pleased you're pleased.


Meanwhile here are two more outlines - I used older versions for my own team logos a while back - however I've tweaked the wings on these to bring up the line weights, positioning etc.
Image
Norse blank 72dpi 696x696 pixels


Image
'Frossborg Brewers' team logo 72dpi 318x312 pixels



Originally intended this to be an alternative chaos style, but reckon it fits with Wights and Vamps just as well.
Image
Chaos/Necromantic/Vampire blank 72dpi 696x696 pixels


Image
'Thin Wight Dukes' team logo 72dpi 348x348 pixels

'Parasite dans L'Sanguin' team logo 72dpi 348x348 pixels


Hopefully there will be Goblin/Underworld and Skaven designs ready by the new year.

GL & HF,

Yeah, I've got a few, but I find that always using them means you end up with a lot of very samey looking logos etc, so I try to mix it up a bit Smile

Great work!!

A couple of things. Have either of you got an outline of the helmet. So helmets where the metal bar work is done, but the centre is transparent?

Also for chaos, this is my favourite chaos helmet design.

@harvestmouse I can make a set of transparent PNGs over the weekend - all outlines, no white fills if you'd like..

Meanwhile had a look at Bone Idol's designs over at the image library - great stuff, but can imagine tricky to mod given they're mostly full colour, shaded and three quarter profile, not side on.

Later,

Yeah, I have found the angles aren't uniform. So if you take part from one and add it to another it often looks out of line, a lot were WIP though.

What I would like (and no hurry on this as I'm working hard for the next couple of weeks) is the main body of the helmet transparent. Using the bar colours you have used for your helemts (if you get my meaning). I'd like to make some set helmet logos to use with the pitches. So they look part of the pitch, not just an overlay.

I know this is a very old thread, but would anyone know how Thom_Darkness added the textures to the helmets? I've downloaded some templates I like, but my knowledge of image editing is limited.
