    First build Mk V Reach style

    Hello! I'm very new to this community but nonetheless I want to build my very own spartan armor. As I already have a 3d printer and some skill with Autodesk Fusion I thought I might 3d print my set. I quickly realised this would not be as easy as I thought and have already encountered several...

    I'm working on a full set of Mjolnir Mk VI armor for an upcoming expo in August (hopefully it's not cancelled!) This is my first time working with foam, I've never done prop-making before so I'm a complete newbie. I've just finished gluing the pieces together for the forearms of my armor! Some...

    First Reach armor build - WIP

    Uh, hi? I'm gonna start building an ODST armor suit soon, either from the Andrew DFT templates or from the Armory foam pep templates. Which would you guys recommend?

    My First Post! Recon - ODST | Progress Build

    After watching Adam Savage, a lot, and going to Halo Outpost last year, I decided to give building my character a shot. I originally had a 3D printer, and was printing all of the armour pieces... until my printer started to act up, making it useless. I've been teeter tottering with the idea of...

    Halo 3 Marine

    A few months ago I started a halo 3 Marine for Halo outpost discovery Anaheim. I “finished” in time for the con and wore it Sunday. Other than that I haven’t really shown it off. I don’t really like how it turned out especially the back of the chest piece. For a first build it could have been a...
