    The suspense! The mystery! The beautiful armour! :p
    Great job, man. You've inspired me greatly with that undersuit!

    You will have to wait a little longer :)
    I hope it will be worth the wait.

    Well today marks 1 year since I began this crazy quest to build a halo 4 suit.
    Looking back to how I started just shows me how much I have learned from this build.
    It wouldn't have been possible to make it this far without this amazing community :)
    So a BIG thankyou to you all!

    This is Commander Snow signing off as Snow for the last time:

    I SALUTE YOU ALL!

    That armor is beautiful, the white and green color scheme is one of the best I've seen. Did you have any problems painting the white?

    Thankyou, I am very happy with how it turned out too :)

    Thanks :)
    The only issue I had with having your armour white is if your someone how doesn't like battle damage that much [many cause I can't make it look good yet] you will repaint it ALOT.
    Basically before every convention I have been too I have repainted it (so far been to 5)

    BUT

    I no longer have the white and green colour scheme...
    Here is a teaser of the finished knee pads [minus the gloss spray]:

    Small teaser:

    Outer-plated forearm [minus touch-up / gloss spray] showing all armour paint colours used in this repaint.
    Once you see all the pieces together it will make more sense.

    To be honest I wasn't too sure about the colour change until I added the fox features.
    Now I love this version so much more than the original colour scheme.
    One extra bonus with the upgrade was that my least favourite piece is now one of my most favourite [Butt plate]

    Operation Snow Fox was a success!
    Had a blast of a time at Eb Games Expo.
    Met lots of great people, saw stacks of wicked cosplays, played some awesome upcoming games, and basically shaked my 'tail' feather all 3 days while going dance crazy. Entered the just cos' cosplay comp on Fri and came 2nd. Helped to promote Button Fox Crafts with their fox plushie kickstarter [of which they achieved !!!]. Exited the expo in style at Sundays Cosplay parade [once I got to the car I was basically soaked from the heat :p]. I am so stuffed and am already missing the expo. Can't wait until next year.

    That's one of the craziest mashups I've ever seen... and it works so well! The visor leads right into those whiskery bits almost like it was meant to be! Awesome job!

    Thanks :)
    Had the idea in my head for 2 weeks, and basically did it at 5am in the morning before Eb Games Expo.

    So I went to Armageddon last weekend...

    The original is from Halo 4, but you never know this could be a new armour set in Halo 5 :p

    Thanks :)
    In future builds I would plan to make a vacuum formed one, but I think this was a pretty good alternative.

    So I'm back at base after having a blast at Oz Comic-con Melbourne last weekend.
    It was alot of fun, and there was ALOT of dancing.

    I'll just leave this here, enjoy :)

    Hey black underdog5, what did you use for the base of the undersuit? I'm thinking of making a set of HALO 4's venator armour, excluding the helmet.
