Recently I've asked Brother KBA about one of his kitbashes, particularly a helmet he has used. It had a very Templary feel that spoke to me, something between my favourite knightly heads in the BT upgrade kit and the GK heads, while the faceplate was not as snouty as the GK ones. Very neat and balanced design, yet I did not recognize the source. Turns out these are from the Sevrin Loth's Honour Guard (I only have Loth himself, bought 2nd hand, which I why I've never seen those) and it's pointless for me to buy the kit if the only thing I need from it is one or two heads.

Unexpectedly, Brother KBA offered to share a few of the heads, did not want to hear about any remuneration, even postage cost. He sent the letter all the way across the world from Canada to Poland, to help a Brother out. To top that, he tossed in four great shoulder pads, which I did not expect even more and did not even know would be in the package.

I'm hugely grateful for the gesture and want this to be a shout out both to Brother KBA and all who have made similar gestures to help out other hobbyists and players here on B&C. You are what makes this community great, thank you all smile.png

Well, no doubt at all that KBA is a great guy. That was really generous.

Did that once for me, too.  Good guy.  The reason one of my Sword Brethren is named Kab, a morose soul whom spent years serving with the Raven Guard when caught behind enemy lines... ;)

Nice to hear, been involved in something similar myself where I and another Frater did a swap, all it cost was postage and I feel this is something that we as board members should try more often. But thumbsup.gif to KBA for a real selfless act.


I recognise my failing and will be sure to correct it

Nice! I love those heads, wish you could buy them separately.
