Hey Vyse - what kind of hat would a lord or a general wear?

What era? Typically a bigger shinier version of everyone else's hats most of the time, In the Napoleonic era, they wore Bicorne's (aka fore and aft hats) [link] [link]

Something like that. I've made a similar hat but it came out oversized...

You know, i thought that would be what you meant. I saw the pic earlier :D. Thats spot on. He wouldnt have any facial hair though, but thats an artistic liberty you can take and it's come out really well :D
