Space Marine build
HI!

Well here is my latest project, its a war hammer 40K space marine armour set for the space wolf chapter.
This is the project so far, the shoulders are in the process of being scrapped and replaced with something a little easier to create the doom shape I need!







More as it comes Hope you lit it so far, feel free to head over to my Facebook for all of my projects and pieces. https://www.facebook.com/DBmikecosplay

Have you looked at balls? With summer here plenty of places should be selling rubber and plastic balls for kids to play with. If you can find one that's thick-skinned and doesn't rely on being pumped up, that might be useful. Even as a base for covering in Worbla or something.

If you mean as material for the shoulders, I'm pepping the main dome part and then hitting it with bondo that way I can scar it and damage it as much as I want to create that kind of effect. Thanks for the idea though! I was looking at some balls for the nozzles on the jet pack but i've got some other ideas i'm trying for the nozzles first but more on that later....

It's looking amazing so far though!

Thanks all!

So for my next trick I built some stilts since I need to be hitting 8ft tall.
I've also built some more of the armour and ill be creating a video of me test fitting it. Ill also add pictures here.
For the mean time here is the picture of my doom! The DIY stilts. I will link the video of me road testing these tomorrow. Will I live or die? Find out tomorrow! And don't forget to wish me luck

Do they actually need to be stilt stilts? I'd imagine they'd make it a lot harder to walk in. Would a set of Painters stilts not be sturdier and easier and less likely to kill yourself

http://compare.ebay.co.uk/like/130414682532?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar&_lwgsi=y&cbt=y&device=c&adtype=pla&crdt=0&ff3=1&ff11=ICEP3.0.0&ff12=67&ff13=80&ff14=63

this is the kind of thing I mean, you don't have to buy them as you could probably make them out of wood.

Daaaaamn thats gonna look incredible! Cant wait to see more man!

I wanted to buy some painters stilts but as you can see they are costly. Upon reflection this design is the worst I could of gone for. I still have to add a foot to the bottom which will add a large flat surface to walk on but I may just dismantle these and modify them to be more like painters stilts.

Thanks for the feedback though its all greatly appreciated

Sorry for double post. Right the following are pictures of my first test fit. I'm fairly happy with the position of everything, the mid section is pretty boring at the moment but that will change. The main torso part could of done with being a little bigger but I wouldn't of been able to predict that since it was the first part of the build but however it's still fine. I think I can just about get away with it especially once the shoulders are mounted and the jet pack is in place.
As for the jet pack I need to modify the jet pack mount a bit to allow it to sit a bit more vertical coz at the moment it's going to be bashing the back of my head.
Anyway here's the pics and more soon!

The armours looking awesome though! Yeah I would recommend painters stilts as you'll be high up and your centre of gravity will be off because of the big armour so the sturdier your base the better and painters stilts would distribute your weight evenly.

Thanks dude, I'll be modding those stilts tomorrow at some point after work so with any luck I'll try and get a video of a test run of the new and improved ones

It's shaping up nicely, dude.

Thanks, I was a little nervous at this point because every things ability to come together was a bit of a theory more than a reality so to see that I got it right so far was a huge relief!
