Re: Re: Viking Horned Helms

The nominal scale according to the manufacturer is 1/60th but they seem to fit into acceptable size for a longship in 1/72nd. In real measurements they are approx 63mm across the beam and approx 290mm stem to stern. I know the photo on the Harfields site is a bit small but you may be able to get some idea how they look with 1/72nd figs nearby.
