Helmet Plumes or Feathers
« on: March 25, 2024, 12:26:13 PM »
Does anyone know where I might get hold of some feathers for my troops? It seems to be an obvious candidate for an enterprising 3D-printer but all I can find is the odd one or two for silly money on eBay.

Anyone had any luck sourcing or making them?

Thanks!

For 3D printing, Cults3D once again comes to the rescue!

These ones looks alright as bits, one of which is stated to have already been sized for 28MM. As for printing, I got mine from various apps -- perhaps try fiverr etc.?

Some of the Empire sprues from days of old had had some spare feather bits on them.

Believe pistoliers/outriders box if I recall correctly, not that those will be enough for the size of some projects.
