Tigris of Gaul helmet from Gladiator

 I have been wanting to do this helmet for some time.The original helmet used in the movie was sculpted over a french Gallet F1 firefighter helmet seen below.

After scouring online I finally found one on ebay for a decent price.most of the time you cant touch a used one for under $250.00 I got mine for $75.00.
So I busted out some clay and started building up the base of this helmet.Doesnt look like much now.I'm going to have to add alot of clay to the bottom to build the height I need. it'll be a cool project.
