    Hi,

    I am looking to convert some historical figures into a small fantasy human army (probably with Vixtrix Normans or Saxons) and I am looking to buy some separate and attachable helmet wings (Asterix style).  I have looked all over Etsy and Ebay but there seems to be nothing.  I have been looking on the internets but to no avail.  Maybe I am wording the search parameters wrongly.  The thing is, I am sure I saw something once but I cannot for the life of me remember where.

    If anyone can point me into the right direction that would be grand.

    Bl**dy h*ll,

    I actually used these in one of my dioramas, ‘The Adventures of Frank & Lilly’ and I completely forgot about them.  Strange they did not turn up in my search.

    Thank you @scribbs again. These are as close to what I need as I will ever find at this point.  Thanks. They say a friend in need is a friend indeed. At this point I am probably your indentured serf!

    @stubbybrush – thanks for the suggestion, but these are way too sci-fi for my needs.  I am looking to convert some Dark Age Normans or Saxons slightly to make them look ‘not that historical’ if you get my drift (somewhat like the Oathmark plastic humans – which I am not very fond of). That is why I was going for some Asterix like feathers to attach to their helmets.  I might also do some armour conversions like half-breast plates and pauldrons to break up the Norman or Saxon aesthetic.

    Nonetheless, thanks for the interest shown.

    Somewhat off topic: You mentioned Astérix, here are some excellent figures from the 70s, which used to come as premiums in packs of chewing gum: http://www.klatmalerier.dk/new_categori_dargaud.html

    They are roughly 30mm (to top of head) and, of course, very cartoonish, but fun to paint and a cool addition to any Celtic, Gaulish or fantasy army. They pop up now and then on the various Fleabays around the world, at surprisingly reasonable prices for rare collectibles.
