    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.

    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

    It appears that many of the links posted above are not working, can anyone help me get to the file directory?

    Distemper New Member

    Trophy Points:
    Hello ThePaladin, yeah unfortunately many of the links take you to the main page. Is there a specific file your looking for that we can help you locate? If it is just general files for armor The Armory tab at the top can take you to the armor forums to look for pepakura and foam files.

    I'm looking for a pepakura file for Mass effect N7 armor, and I tried looking in the armor forums to no avail.

    Trophy Points:
    Hello ThePaladin, the forum location that may have what your looking for is on the main page under the title Non-halo Costumes and Props. I don't know much about Mass Effect but when your in that forum go the the right hand side of the screen close to the top and there is a search function that will allow you to search that entire forum for what you want Such as Mass Effect or N7. If you can't find what your looking for here another site that may offer more options for non Halo files would be the rpf at the RPF sorry I couldn't be of more help on this issue.
