Firstly, you need to know, that the paladin's base from the crusaders. So, in the games (like the Wow, etc.) they desings like the crusaders, or the knights in the middle age. They power's base is mix of the fight and the magic.
In the pictures, you can see some variant for the knight and crusader styles for your paladin.
The helmet is important part of the knight's armours. You think, that it's simple, but you can show for the watcher the knight's personality and the placer, where come from. (As you see in the 2. variant helmet)
If you want to draw a shield for your paladin figure, you can see some variant and tips for the helmet's design.
The design can be simple, or can be difficult too, it's your choice.
