    Hello all!

    There's an Elite sized hole in my heart, so today marks day one of filling it!

    I plan to complete The Shipmaster (his name is Rtas Vadum so lets go with that from now on) by February 2018 just in time for RTX Sydney.

    Thanks for looking, I'll be updating this thread regularly over the next 3 months!

    Rtas is one of my favorite Covenant characters. Love his scene with the Arbiter in the Dropship in Halo 2.

    Build looks nice and clean so far. Will be keeping an eye on your progress, and good luck!

    I cut off Rtas' left mandables (poor guy). Still working out details and positioning of the face, but so far so good.

    I hardly have the perseverance to create a set of spartan armor, i cannot imagine what it takes to make a fully fledged rtas cosplay, I hope that heart of yours gets filled.... but i mean your heart must be pretty big... your looking at a 7ft tall hole in your heart.

    Torso base is built \owo/

    I just realised how much time I don't have to get this done so let the grind commence.

    Arms are built. I think I'm going to redo the shoulders and make them a little bigger.

    It's good to see this starting to come together!

    Oh man, this is turning out great! Do you plan on making the legs bend backwards like they do or you going to keep it simple?

    Yep I'll be trying to sell the effect of digitigrade legs as best I can. Hopefully I'll make a start on those in the next couple of weeks!

    Shins and feet! (stilts are w.i.p)

    Currently working on thigh armor and starting to work on sculpting the hands.

    I have like 2 weeks to get this whole suit done, I'm moving house soon.

    I can almost test fit the entire Elite!

    From here I need to make the shoulders around 15-20% larger, add details to all the armor pieces and finalize my stilts.

    Things are looking good and I'm making good time. I will be ready for RTX Sydney!

    Your build is looking awesome. I especially love the way you built the legs.
     
  15. HeadLocks

    Thank you!

    If there is one thing I wanted to get right in this build, it was getting the legs to look digitigrade.

    WOW, those are some big ass feet!!! Great job man. Looking forward to seeing this finished.

    This is incredible as always!

    When you are finished, I would love to see you put in a Deployment aplication with it. I would love to see you as the First Deployed Elite costume, and I think your costume could serve as a fantastic model for the Tier 1 or 2 level Elite costume!
     
  22. HeadLocks

    HeadLocks

    Thank you!

    I turn 18 on the 12th of Feb, I'll certainly put an application through then!

    Also the first deployed Elite?? I thought there wouldve been at least a couple!

    I agree with Cadet! This is a super fun build and would love to see more like this! I am also glad you are sharing on the forum as well!

    Covenant costumes aren't super popular. Honestly, I can only think of like maybe 3 other Elite costumes I have ever seen finished or get close to where you are now.

    We do have one Deployed Hunter, but the over whelming majority of our Deployed costumes are SPARTANS and ODSTS.
