    Props (WIP) Halo Reach Energy Sword Build

    Alright, I apologize for the lack of updates, but I'm back into the swing of things. It's kinda like quests in an RPG. The sword is the main quest, but I've been so bogged down doing the quicker and funner side quests that I've completely ignored the main bit of story driven fun. So anyway I...

    Props H4 Sniper WIP

    Battle damage is a godsend, best method by far, I use it on everything! Never an "ugly part", it's just seen a lot of action. I know what you mean by the primer eating the foam. I spent about 5 hours stenciling a hexagon pattern for an airsoft project, but when it came time to paint, the paint...

    Grasping the Energy Sword

    So how would you rate the balance on the Halo 3 style sword? With electronics and everything included. Front heavy, rear heavy? I take it because it's all solid material that there's going to be a slight imbalance. But again how would you describe the balance on yours and what is attributing to...

    Grasping the Energy Sword

    You talk about the center of gravity/balance. I'd imagine in game this makes sense, but I never anticipated a similar result IRL due to material differences and such, ie: metal/plasma:resin/urethane. When you describe balance, are you suggesting perfect balance or comfortable balance? The...

    Props (WIP) Halo Reach Energy Sword Build

    Hey no worries any information helps! I'll post my current observations and questions about the energy sword in general there. Edit: you're the builder who did all the electronic work for Sean Bradley's sword correct?

    Props Halo Vector Drawings

    Diggin the DMR man. If you are looking for ways to print, I suggest Blockposters. If you trim the edges of the drawing, eliminating as much blank space as possible, you can get some pretty size accurate results. It even lets you know the estimated approximate size of the image once all the...

    Props (WIP) Halo Reach Energy Sword Build

    Hey I'd like to apologize, I ended up getting sick for the first time literally in years. Spent the the weekend and the last few days away from work basically quarantined in my room, so I do apologize for not keeping my word and uploading that night. foxleader, digging the Game Theory...

    Props (WIP) Halo Reach Energy Sword Build

    Thanks man! Definitely planning the lights! Probably going to retrofit this light kit used for Sean Bradley's swords. Maybe not sound at the moment, as this thing is way too large to be used as a cosplay prop, more likely just display. I just made the hilt template and can barely hold it in one...

    Props (WIP) Halo Reach Energy Sword Build

    Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've attempted any Halo props or projects. My only successful one being a M6 cast from Justin Branfuhr, which turned out excellent for the first kit I've ever done. I've been working on a lot of other smaller projects here and there, mostly airsoft...

    Spartan Numbers

    Since I love the Spartan III's from Reach, my spartan is G-016. Gamma company being the company with the lowest number of KIA's and highest number of remaining active spartans, and 016 being the age I started playing Halo at. Plus once I get my MK.V armor finished, I could do an update to...

    Visors for helmets.

    Well for starters welcome to the 405th! Now into your question, most of the designs put into the visors are actually 2 visors placed on top of one another. The bottom layers is an unaltered motorcycle visor and the top layer is another motorcycle visor that has had the dual layer design cut out...

    Tactonyx Halo Weapons Thread

    Hey Tac, I was wondering about some of the markings on your pistols. I am putting together a Justinian M6 kit and I want to really make it authentic, but I cannot locate any serial numbers or anything on any guns. Any chance you could post some images of your markings and numbers to get a feel...

    A suggestion for the Noob Forum!

    If the Mods and Admins are talking about restructuring, you may also want to consider a stick about using the forum's codes for signatures and such, I am still having a tough time figuring this stuff out, and I've been here for about 6 years, the change from one type of forum to another didn't...
