    Tactonyx Halo Weapons Thread

    Greetings everyone, I've created this thread so I can post all of my builds in one spot, and so they can all be found in one spot.
    To start out with, all of my builds are built from expanded PVC foamboard and sheet styrene. I usually get them in 1mm, 2mm and 3mm sheets of varying surface areas. I use an exacto knife with a reverse tanto tip or a reverse scalpel to cut the plastic (I prefer slightly dull blades as they are least likely to get stuck in the plastic)
    I use epoxy putty and bondo to do body work and I use liquid super glue to assemble my projects. I also use gel super glue to fill in small dents and holes.
    I use 80 grit sandpaper to work off most of the putty work and 100 grit sandpaper to do all of my regular work, and use 150 grit and 400 grit on moving parts that will be rubbing against another part.
    I will be reserving the first posts so I can upload projects as they come along (and believe me, I have quite a bit of Halo weapons already being worked on) and If you ask a question and I don't respond, that's because the answer is already here in this first thread.
    Contrary to popular belief, I do not have a stash of pep files, these are not made from pep files and I don't use pep files for my guns. Also, I will not share, or sell my weapon blueprints or references. So don't bother asking as you will be ignored.

    So to kickstart everything off, I'd like to introduce my M6 Pistol.

    Here's the renders of the pistol. My pistol is based heavily on the Halo 2 M6C pistol, though I do take some design elements from the Halo 3 ODST pistol.


    My M6 Pistol family so far


    M6C





    M6C SOCOM




    Proto M6G, or D, whichever you prefer.


    M6J Carbine




    M6K Compact




    The pistol features a working trigger with a 3/16 (5mm) travel, a working safety, working slide, friction locked magazine, working Picatinny rails and interchangeable parts to make it into several variants with little modification.
    I do plan on making copies of these so I can make the other variants so I may do a run of them here very shortly.
    If you want to see more images of my Pistol, you can visit my website here:http://tactonyx.blogspot.com/2010/10...m6-pistol.html

    Here's my personal favorite, the M7 smg

    M7 renders



    M7 Exploded


    Cross section of the stock


    M7 Vanilla





    M7S




    Demonstration of the foregrip locking mechanism in action


    And yes, I like my builds to be very technical and detailed.


    The M7 smg features a rotating foregrip that can lock, a detachable barrel shroud, detachable silencer, extending locking stock, working trigger, detachable friction locked magazine, detachable reflex sight and a reciprocating bolt that can be locked back.

    I think was a pretty cool rifle, one of the exceptionally few weapons that I actually liked out of Halo: Reach.

    The M392 DMR features a working safety, working trigger, working charging handle, detachable friction locked magazine, working weaver style rails, folding front sight post and detachable scope.

    I've decided that the "BMR" was just too ugly and decided to build the BR55. I've changed some of the designs around so it had compatible parts with the MA5 assault rifle.

    M90 Mk.2 CAWS

    When I first played Halo, I never read the instruction manual, I just popped the game in and started playing. The shotgun came as a complete surprise when I picked it up in the swamp, but it was an awesome surprise.

    Render


    Left side of shotgun


    Right side of shotgun


    Bolt and Barrel


    Working pump action


    Iron sights


    Magazine, showing two 8 gauge shells


    Pump all the way back


    "Weapon System Technologies"


    Buttstock


    The shotgun has a working trigger and a moving pump action, bolt and elevator. When the pump action is pulled all of the way back, the elevator will move downwards to simulate feeding a round. The elevator will also move in simulation of loading shells.

    Here's my take on the MA5 rifles. In here I have the MA5G (Grenadier) the Halo 4 version of the MA5D and the MA5K. My MA5G has a grenade launcher instead of a flashlight.

    Here's the neglected M247 GPMG. To me, I always saw the M247 as the big brother of the MA5 assault rifle

    Of all of the SRS99's my personal favorite was the Halo 2 sniper. It looks to more like a anti material rifle than any of the others. On a side note, the rifle is about five and a half feet long (1650mm) I've noticed a lot of people used a .50 BMG for thier sniper rifle builds, I built my own 14.5mm round to make it look and feel like a AMR, plus the 14.5mm is way bigger than a .50 and in real world ballistics the 14.5mm is twice as powerful. The sabot based off the Steyr 15.2mm AMR round.

    SRS99C-S2AMB Render


    About 75% of the gun so far.





    The SRS99 witha M6 pistol



    Yeah, this thing is so big it wouldn't fit on my "blue" table for pictures.

    I'm saving all of these posts for future Halo 4 weapons (Such as the grenade launcher found in the trailer)

    I think I'll stop at #14, where the Machete, knives and grenades might go.
    Sorry for the inconvience, but as the year goes by the posts will start filling up with cool pics of my collection of guns.
    Feel free to comment. Thanks.

    Cant help you on the price, but this was in his first post: "To start out with, all of my builds are built from expanded PVC foamboard and sheet styrene. I usually get them in 1mm, 2mm and 3mm sheets of varying surface areas.
    I use epoxy putty and bondo to do body work and I use liquid super glue to assemble the entire projects. I also use brush on superglue for superficial chattering and seams and I use gel super glue to fill in small dents and holes.
    I use 80 grit sandpaper to work off most of the putty work and 100 grit sandpaper to do all of my regular work, and use 150 grit and 400 grit on parts that are supposed to look like metal."
