Costume Information

Cost : £50
Time Taken : Four weeks

A generic Tanith 1st trooper from Dan Abnett's Gaunts Ghosts books. Kind of hard to do because aside from a few miniatures a few years back and scattered (often wildly inaccurate) artwork, the only thing to go on design wise is the descriptions in the books, which also tend to change slightly over the course of the series (fourteen books so far I believe, so a little change is acceptable!).

I will probably refine the costume to represent one of the named characters in time, and if all goes well I'll be helping a group of friends put together their own Tanith costumes to lay siege to a con as a group!
