Now that Ynnead is coming I want to expand my skull helmet theme that only the Trueborn have until now.
I've use the helmets of dark Elf executioner units but that is so damn expensive. Does anyone know an alternative?

The only other one that springs to mind is harlequins have a lot of skull masks/half skulls, you can usually pick their heads up from bits salemen on ebay without needing to buy the full kit.
I think the executioners may still be your best bet however.

Yea. Quite a lot of kabalite helmets actually are easy to paint a skull shape on with moderately steady hand. Just take your white and keep to the elevated areas, go around the eyes, do nose and narrower mouth part and chin. The result is actually amazing IMO.

You can also cut the fronts off of Necron faces and glue them onto Harlequin heads.

Thanks for the input. Does anyone has a third party manufacturer maybe who can accomplish something like that?

They seem a bit big. More suited for Marines. But thanks!

I know. Dont think you will be able to get something appropriate unless you sculpt them yourself and make them yourself. Such bits could be made with Green Stuff.

My advice is look to a green stuff mold. Either using an executioner or random skull, make a mold of only the face in green stuff. Then once cured, you can add some other GS to any head, push into the mold and viola! Just remember to use a liberal amount of oil so the new GS won't stick to the old GS. I usually add a drop to an old brush and apply. Good luck
