    Soldier 76 Pulse Rifle

    Another one of the projects that I never got round to uploading from a couple of years ago, this is based on the gold skin verson of the Pulse Rifle but with some slightly Halo fuel rod gun inspired lighting. These first images show how the majority of the rifle was made using a version of the...

    Amanda Holliday's Space Wrench (Destiny)

    It's been a while since I last posted on here, partly due to the long periods of downtime and issues with the image hosting sites, but since there's now a dedicated sub-forum for it I figured I'd share some of my non-Halo props (Most still fall within the genre of sci-fi video games). This...

    M6H DMG Variant (Modified for detail and cleaned for 3D printing)

    Since my last post I've pretty much finalised the design. I've increased the muzzle height significantly and it now matches the slider (Which is now much longer, and I've removed the part which intersected the front of the gun, so the whole thing actually looks pretty tidy even without the...

    M6H DMG Variant (Modified for detail and cleaned for 3D printing)

    I'd already be done with the printing by now if it weren't for two things: One, I'm waiting for a delivery of printing filament so I won't risk running out part way through, and second, I'm really not happy with the mechanics of the actual M6H. In Halo 2, the entire upper surface of the M6C is...

    M6H DMG Variant (Modified for detail and cleaned for 3D printing)

    For some reason, every time I exported the files I'd cleaned up as .OBJs and used the Netfabb model repair service to check their integrity, the "fixed" model would always come back with unwanted errors, or with certain details removed. Switched to exporting everything in STL format, and...

    M6H DMG Variant (Modified for detail and cleaned for 3D printing)

    I'm not even familiar enough with Blender to know how to change the shading type! I've been working in edit mode all the time though, so the wireframe overlay was sufficient for me. I actually already have a download of your file from when I was comparing the overall size of the M6H and M6H2...

    M6H DMG Variant (Modified for detail and cleaned for 3D printing)

    Will do, and thanks for putting the files on the archive in the first place! I've been looking at your threads over the past few weeks and something you mentioned about files you'd ripped stuck in my mind while I've been modifying the vertex co-ordinates of the model: A lot of seemingly flat...

    M6H DMG Variant (Modified for detail and cleaned for 3D printing)

    I've typically only made props for my own use at conventions, but I'm hopefully going to start selling resin and aluminium casts soon, so I've been looking for smaller props that would have a lower production cost and post production time. I decided on the M6 Series, but wanted something more...

    Props SRS99-AM (Wood + Aluminium Halo Reach Sniper Rifle)

    It's finally done! Here are the last couple of WIP photos and the self-photoshoots I took: And a brief demo of all the functioning parts (I forgot to mention the trigger though!)

    Props SRS99-AM (Wood + Aluminium Halo Reach Sniper Rifle)

    I got sidetracked with work and other projects, but here is the most recent progress picture. Most of the base colour is on, and I've added the protruding ribs on the foregrip. All that's left is the dirt wash and silver wear effect.

    Props SRS99-AM (Wood + Aluminium Halo Reach Sniper Rifle)

    Again, apologies for the lack of updates. I've lost motivation to finish this build quickly since I'm no longer going to the next MCM comic con. It's almost complete now, but I have a lot more cleanup to do on the surface. Using real wood as a bevelled edge to join larger tubing to smaller ones...

    Props SRS99-AM (Wood + Aluminium Halo Reach Sniper Rifle)

    It should do. The aluminium has a fair amount of bend before it enters the plastic region, and it's so thick (Being double walled) that it won't be bent out of shape from being knocked hard. I can even "swoosh" the bipod up while holding the rifle normally and have it lock into place without...

    Props SRS99-AM (Wood + Aluminium Halo Reach Sniper Rifle)

    I've finished the bipod un-deployment clip. It's a bit messy witrh all the small bolts, but luckily it'll be mostly hidden from view by the legs themselves. Since the actual sniper doesn't have the brace at the top or the folding hinge in the middle, I've drilled extra holes to try and match the...

    Props SRS99-AM (Wood + Aluminium Halo Reach Sniper Rifle)

    I used some standard 30mm cabinet butt hinges. The bipod feet looked like they should be on a ball and socket joint but I went with a hinge for simplicity, and the upper hinge should be right at the edge of the circle but the clearance would have been too low. I've added some additional...
