Minifigure Helmet - Pig Snout Bascinet

Pigs were widely feared in medieval Europe. They even developed their military helmets to resemble pig snouts to scare away their enemies. Oink, oink! Not really. But these custom LEGO® helmets really do look a little like pig snouts. You'll just have to buy enough for an army and see if they make your minifigures enemies quiver in their boots!

    Best Bascinet

    Who doesn't want the iconic pig snout bascinet? While it's true that the traditional real-life version has a liftable visor, I feel that your warrior would rather the visor be down when they're in battle! It's great to have such an authentic piece of armor for use!

    If you've ever been to a medieval museum you have probably seen one of these, the iconic pig snout bascinet has never seen the light of legos until now, and boy am I glad it has! It is good in that it doesn't look too fancy for your casual adventurer but it's reasonable for your bonafide knights too!

    Perfect for knights, men-at-arms and other heavy troops.

    This visored bascinet, and I should just say this first, does not have a moving visor, which is why I cannot give it a 5. However, The price would have been higher if it did, and not as easy to amass for armies as a result.
    This is a great choice for your medieval armies, as it saw usage during the 14th century across europe's armies in just about every rank, even archers and crossbowmen had the visor down according to art from back then!
    It is also one of few helmets that cover the middle ground of knightly helmets, as it is not quite as high-tech as the official close helm nor as primitive as the great helm.

    Another neat thing is that it masks some useless heads very well, though the Great Helm is still the best at this.

    If you feel that "visored helmets should be visored" maybe come up with a reason for the helmet to be "sealed"? Maybe the helmet is worn by a madman who had to seal the helmet to prevent himself from going on a cannibalistic frenzy? Maybe his beard grew into the hinges and he can't open it? Maybe it's just a bit rusty?
