[Archive] Big Hat Designs

Kera foehunter:

Ok guys i like some help on the big hats!

I 'm doing my first big hats (yea) so what are the designs that go on the hat ?? i seen mostly arrows.

is there any order in what to put on hats??

Hrothgar Goldgreed:

I think a big arrow right through the middle is just fine, along with some other chaossy decoration such as skulls :slight_smile:


Spikes on the top are good too.

Also if you can get the right bits from shields, the crowned skull from the Empire can work out nicely even if you shave the crown off. You might need to flex it a bit though.

If you cut the crown off, keep the pieces. Then turn them upside down and run them along the brim of the bottom/top of the hat!

thanks !!!what about horns???


Horns you steal from the chaos warriors! Or possibly the BFSP dwarfs


you can also put lithing on it, like i have done on my gh6 entry


Symetrical lightning works quite well (as in one fork of lightning on, say, the left of a central arrow, then the mirror image to the right of it).

I’m thinking of sculpting bulls heads on the front of the hats for my immortals, maybe you’d like to give that a try

Kera foehunter:

i was thinking of shulls that look like the ones that are on the chaos cannon

sorta shull that deamon warped (a up dated hat )

posable chain design around the rim

i like the lighting design

Hashut’s Blessing:

A hat I drew for a special character had a volcano in the background with a bull’s head at the front and horns sticking out of either side. Any of those symbols are good, as are top-spikes, lightning bolts, arrows, bearded skulls etc. Take a look at the 4th ed models for some inspiration. Someone on the website (I’ve rudely gone and forgotten them now :’( ) has made some excellent hats. One from an ogre club and one from a cannon shell etc…
