“Carter may be the boss, but Jorge is a living, breathing death threat. Nobody messes with Jorge.”
So Comicon is coming to Tampa August 1-3 and I've always wanted to build my favorite Spartan from Noble Team, Jorge. I've got a month to pull this out, let's see if I'll get it done in time! I have the next 3 weeks off of school so all my time will be dedicated to getting this done. It's been raining here nearly everyday so I haven't been able to paint my other 2 builds. I just got a little burnt out working 100+ hours on them, I needed a break with a new build xD. Seeing as Reach Spartan armor seemed to be the easiest armor to make, I hope it won't take too much time to get this done right. plus my foam-crafting skill is around 80 now.
Anyways let's get to pictures!
I've got the chest pretty much done:
The black parts on the back are recessed a bit and the other areas I used a router to carve the circles and ovals (kind of hard to see the depth because of the flash from the camera).
Luckily, Jorge has a huge backpack that covers the back of the torso so I don't really have to go into too much detail which will save loads of time.
I also have his weapon:
It's the Halo 4 Turret that I modified a little bit to match Jorge's HMG (removed vertical grip/triggers and plate). Still missing is the part that covers the base of the barrel assembly and the oval details on the barrel assembly. Other than that it's nearly identical.
Next up on my list are the biceps/shoulders with the EVA and Grenadier perms.
