Welcome to the 405th!

Members are able to sign up with their selected Regiment as soon as they're validated and posting - let your local Regimental CO know that you'd like to be added to the roster and they'll get you sorted as soon as they're able to.

simblarosh,
If you are still classified as a Member (less than 30 posts or less than 30 days active), then you are restricted to starting new threads in the New Recruits Forum; that error will appear if you try to start a new thread elsewhere.
Looks like you figured it out, but if you have questions, don't hesitate to ask around and read up on the FAQs. Welcome to the 405th!

how do you post a blog... I am new and may not be able to for a while.
My blog is about my halo laser tag project.
For sizing to suit you a formula to calculate how large the prop will be is (w÷214)h=e
w= The weapon/part size in centimetres
h= your height
e= the equivalent height/size
214= master chiefs hight in cm
All you need to know is the size of the part on master chief

Go to you profile > blog entries
Then you'll see 'create a new blog entry'.

Also, please do not double post, there is an EDIT button.
