    Howdy everyone! Just been waiting for the fifty-post limit to post this so I didn't break any rules.

    As the title says, and due to the Home this thread resigns in, you can probably guess:

    I'm making the Helioskrill armor!

    Of course, the only resource is a 360 spin-around view, so if anyone feels up to it, you can most definitely take my file and go wild on the improvements, but I wanted to show the community what I have so far!

    And if you feel that I did not do the helmet justice, you can download it HERE

    And just to cover my butt from getting sued or whatever over this, I claim no rights to this, all rights go to 343i, Microsoft, and the works. I claim ownership of this material.

    I know there a lot of people that think this armor looks weird, But I LOVE IT! This is a great looking 3d model. I wish I had more experience myself to be able to aid you, but as far as I see, this looks pretty dang good.

    Aha, thanks! I love it too, and if time allows, I plan on cosplaying in it to the Halo 5: Guardians launch!

    Alright, thanks! And the link was broken cause dumb me flipped the URL and the word "HERE" in the message, should be fixed now!

    Also forgot to mention, I left a lot of details out (most noticeably the side triangle part which in the 360 spin held very detailed black sangheili artwork) just for clarity. I think that it could easily be added post-helmet pep and production to make it look a bit better, just felt the need to leave it out just in case someone wanted to customize that little spot to their heart's desires. I will probably start on the wrist armor next, fitted to a random muscle-dude I found as a 3d object somewhere in the internet. Until I have progress to be shown, I bid thee adieu!

    Looks awesome!

    Just a heads up. If you have someone on your friends list, you can spectate their games. Pause it and use the free cam to zoom around and get all the details you need. There's no way to save the film in the beta, but you can use the DVR to record a pan of the armor and take off-screen shots.

    does anyone like this helmet?
    to be honest It's one of the ugliest helmets ive seen in the halo universe and it doesnt seem to fit.

    Combined with the standard armour I think it might look a bit odd but if there is a chest piece to go with it...it might look quite cool

    Maybe, if the duck bill on the back, and the horns on the sides wouldn't be there. I think it would be a decent helmet. Maybe those can be removed and be used as attachments to the helmet if the builder prefers them.

    The Helioskrill armor looks to me like it was based off the Halo 5 Arbiter's armor. In recent photos and video of the armor, you can see how parts of the helmet are similar to a Sangheili's mandible armor, and how the boots mimic a Sangheili's split hoof.

    By the way, I am almost done with a foam unfold of the helmet if anyone wants it

    Forgive me reviving an old thread, but I gotta say, you did an amazing job for only being able to use a 360 turn table of it. But I have to ask, did you check it to see if it would proportionally fit a person's head? I know when Vrogy did agent locke's helmet it turned out to be pretty un-proportional to an actual head and it had to be modified. But then again, all he had was pictures from the mcc videos to go off of.
