Roman Helmet Papercraft Models

These 1:1 scale papercraft Roman military helmets were created by Hans-Dieter Richter of Berlin, Germany. On the left is a centurion's helmet and on the right is a legionary's helmet. Centurions typically commanded anywhere from 80 to 100 legionaries in the Roman military system. The templates for these helmets may be found here and here.


  1. I've done 05 helmets! They've taken a long time to be done , but the final work was great!

  2. Wow! 5 helmets! I am impressed. Keep up the good work.

  3. Hey I'm trying to make 4 legionary helmets and also a centurion helmet for a play. The design is really awesome! It's very accurate to what the real thing is. But the directions/instructions are a little confusing. Think you can email me an easier way to make em?

    Can you also tell me what else I need to have other than the papers?

  4. I'm sorry, but I don't have any easier instructions available to send you. You will have to contact the creator of the helmets at the website where they are located. Other good supplies to have when papercrafting are an exacto knife to cut parts out and a quick drying "tacky" type glue. Good luck!

  5. you dont need paper mache for this project, right?

  6. should i print the templates with the fit to size option? how do you scale the helmet so that it fits other head sizes? Great Site!!!

  7. the hat doesnt fit my head, how can i enlarge it?

    1. The easiest way to make it significantly larger is to print to a larger size of paper and use "fit to printable area".
