Hello all!I'd like to say thank you for your work and dedication over the past two and a half years that this project has been going on! We're not done yet! It's a continual WIP! I do want to say a few things-
Once we have one finished helmet (several are being made), it will be sent to the proper people for auctioning. This does not mean that the suit build is cancelled, it just means that there hasn't been enough participation. I have been unable to get ahold of several of the people involved with the project to ask if they've had any progress and therefore, I'm not sure if the suit will even be in progress anytime soon. Until it is, I want this to be a continual charity project. I haven't been able to work on the M6H for a while, but I still have plans to finish it for the project!
I've had a ton on my plate for the past year and proping and cosplay has taken a back seat to everything else. My father passed away nearly a year ago, and since then my family has had college plans to adjust and plan for. My family is moving 2 hours south of where I currently live (from Houghton Lake to Grand Rapids, Michigan if any of you are in the area!) and most of my proping a cosplay materials have been packed in storage for moving for several months now. Once I set up shop at my new home and get adjusted to new college life, I'll be able to put more energy into the project. After watching the E3 press conference two days ago, I realized that I started this project nearly two and a half years ago when they lifted the embargo for Halo 4 and the first images of the H4 MK VI were released! Wow! We're in the wake of Halo 5 next year! Crazy how time flies!
Thank you, everyone, for your continued support and work on the project! If there is a mod out there who can eliminate the "2012" from the title of the project and just make it the "405th Unity Project", that's be awesome! Thanks again!
As some of you may remember , last year I got a small team together to make a MK VI helmet to donate to Child's Play Charity. The helmet was signed by Steve Downes and several other members of the cast of Halo : CE. The helmet sold for nearly $900 and I think we could get even more!
After seeing all of the new images of the Halo 4 armor being released, I would like to put together a team and make a full suit of Halo 4 armor. We need the best of the best. Each person will play a key role in the armor and will have a designated part of the armor to work on. keep in mind This is for charity.

IMPORTANT- All parts should be scaled to a 'average' size. Example - The human head is 55.9 cm in circumference, so that is what you should base your scaling off of.
Some larger parts will be molded and cast out. This is no easy task, but with a good team, it could be fantastic! Please, any reference pictures, volunteers or help in general is highly appreciated!
I sense that this thread will be of great reference -
