Ladies and Gentlemen… For my next trick… I will make a Mk VI Spartan… APPEAR!
With all the armor choice out there since the release of ODST and the glorious Reach, I still find myself drawn to the Mk VI. Whenever I hear the name “Master Chief”, “Halo” or “Who could kick Chuck Norris’s ass?” the Mk VI is the image that pops into my mind. Maybe it is because we have been through so much together over the years with all the late nights and tired mornings killing Covenant and Flood scum, we have now formed a special bond. Or maybe it’s like your first car... It may not have been the best machine in the world, but it was special because it was “yours”. An even further stretch, it’s like asking someone “Who’s the Captain of the Enterprise?” (The answer by the way is clearly Piccard!)
Anyways, I digress…
Now to the business at hand; This will be a “comprehensive WIP” what I mean by that is that there will be complete coverage from A – Z, no stone left un-turned so to speak, there will be no rushing through a process and all of a sudden I’m unexpectedly leaps and bounds ahead of where I was in the previous post, everything will be covered with an explanation and documented with a nauseating amount of pictures (I doubt that people around here will suddenly get sick of looking at and critiquing pictures) I guess at the end of it all what I am trying to do is provide “From my perspective” the process of building a complete set of armour with some personal touches along the way.
First of all, I don't plan on bouncing around all over the place with armour scattered about the house. I plan to pep a piece and take it to the point of painting, then and only then will I pep out another piece. So it's a "Wet, Lather, rinse, repeat" approach.
So, here we go...
Let the pepping begin!
Surprise, surprise... I started with a Helm!... No real shocker there!
Just some quick info about the pep file:
- Pep MK6 Flyingsquirl HD
- Build Height = 280mm
Next, a coat of Poly resin and a generous coat of rondo.
