Other: I'm a bit of a weirdo in these parts as I don't do armor! I'm currently about 98% done with my V.2 of Miranda Keyes (H2A version) and would love to do more variations of her in the future. I would love to know if there's any precedent for 405th members who aren't Spartans/odsts. I've also been featured in Halo Waypoint twice!
Hey Shimmy!

Welcome to the 405th!

We have a lot of folks who don't cosplay as a spartan or an ODST!

We're all about building your character. If your character is Miranda Keyes, then we're happy to have you!

(Fun fact, we have some members who don't even have a cosplay of their own. They just love hanging out!)

I love anything Ghibli
Hayao Miyazaki is one of my all time favorite directors. Basically everything that his studio has released is a masterpiece.
 
Hey Nero, welcome to the 405th!

Sushi I understand but Eel is a new one for me! I've heard that it's a bit rubbery.
If learning the skills to build your own Spartans is what you want, this is the best place to learn! We have a massive amount of tutorials and other materials you can use to learn how to get started in our great hobby. Check out the armoury and the tutorials section in the forums.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Thanks! I already looked and consumed a lot of tutorials as well as peoples build threads the past three months in preparation . I've already gotten started on printing my MK VII Helmet as well , so I'll probably start my build thread soon once the rest of my Material arrives. :)

Also: Eel - Unagi specifically is actually really nice. Its very fatty , I'd definitely recommend trying it out.

Hey Omilia, welcome to the 405th!
Don't feel pressured to use your real name here if you don't want to, anything works!

The music of Halo is one of the cherry-on-top aspects in my opinion, Marty O Donnel never misses when making Halo tracks!
Shame what happened to your old suit, hopefully we'll have you back in armour in no time at all!

If you have any questions, feel free to send a message or open a thread!
Best of luck with your armour and enjoy your time here.

Howdy Patrick, welcome to the 405th!

A fan of the man that knows what ladies like? My man! Johnson is honestly one of my favourite characters too, even more so after reading Contact Harvest. If you haven't read that by the way, I highly recommend it.

Cool MCC Spartan too! We'll see if we can't get you in that armour for real! Check out our tutorials before you get started to get a better idea of how you want to build your spartan.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

What's up Brian, welcome to the 405th!

We'll see if we can't get you making a full suit to match those helmets, check out the tutorials page and the New Recruits section for more info.

I do have plans for more armor! After just having finished the carter I have a new itch to do a custom build. I'm currently in the process of picking out the pieces of armor I want. That being said I think I have decided on doing a Mk VII base. I will make sure to capture the progress and share with the group!
