Welcome to the forum (to BlackRavenLord) and thanks!!
As you all can see, 'history' is winning so I have decided to modify the helmet accordingly (although, as JPinoy has pointed out, they're both historical; I still thought I'd try resculpting it to better suit everybody's taste, and hopefully market them sometimes in the future). So far, I've been able to sand down the front to match the flat face shown in TTK's picture, the tricky part, however, will be the chin guards - I'm trying to find a balance between extending them enough, but not too much so they'll look good but still enable a fig to put on a suit of armor. I haven't touched the top and the back yet, though, and it looks like it's going to take me some times to modify the whole thing. Right now, I'm thinking maybe instead of modifying I should just take a new chunk of clay and re-do the whole thing from scratch. I guess I'll see what happens after this weekend
