Hello, I would like to start off with saying thank you to those who have introduced themselves and welcomed me into the 405th community. Thank you!

Okay on to my project, I am currently working on a custom rakshasa spartan that will be made with foam, the one thing is the helmet and weapons are/will be 3d printed by me, files I have used are by Thehudsonforge for the S7 sniper that im currently printing, NerdForgeDesigns for the kukri and Titlewavedesigns for the Morrigan helmet. Yall should go check them out they're great.

To start I will begin to work from the boots up to the chest, then finish with the arms. I feel like this is a good start for me to work with foam.
After looking at the Rakshasa armor for a good 1-2 hours I feel confident that making a good undersuit is as important as making the armor itself. Mostly a lot of straps lol.

Here are some photos I've taken with the helmet and the kukri, I will also post my progress on my Insta (Shyly_Eyes).

Hello there. Quick update unfortunately I've been sick for the last two months and dealing with work and family, I haven't been working on the armor. So I will be making the decision to 3d print instead of foam to save me the time. Maybe in the future ill make my own with foam. I will however be making the vest for the undersuit out of foam and any attachments I like. I have gotten gloves and elbows and knee pads(shown in the picture) that I see fit. I will still be showing my progress and painting. Thank you to those for still looking in and sorry for the inconvenience.

So to start off sorry about not posting for a while. I actually have a lot done right now. Actaully its all done. Unfortunately right now I don't have good photos showing it off, but I would like to share some photos of when I was actually in progress of printing. Some went out smoothly and others not so well lol. Hopefully soon I can get some straps to hold everything together then start painting soon. If anyone has any advice for good painting products or any tips all will be much appreciated, I've only sanded all of my prints in the past. Mostly because I could never find a good time to do so. As for color I want to do the Rakshasa camouflaged but in a black palette. not sure since the armor core doesnt have a lot of color palette I mind besides the camo and the ten basic ones. Am really looking forward to finishing my Spartan soon.

I found out that the thighs I've printed wasn't actually measured like I thought I did so now I'll have to reprint them. The first piece is in progress, the printer I use is an Ender 5 s1. As for color I now have something I like which was added into the game a few days ago. Brushtread Disruptive. Base off the ODST I like the dark colors and the green camouflage in there. I do hope I can finish soon. I'm looking into what my right shoulder piece should be which is the last thing I should print to actually be 100% complete.

Those armor and prop components are looking good! I can't wait to see the whole build come together!
