To all WH40k fans out here...
« on: June 21, 2010, 05:30:44 am »
Just because I see the "Non-Avatar Cosplay" forum is a bit hmm... dead? I thought I will post here my current project.

This is a full Space Marine Holy Power Armour made with the cardboard/fiberglass&resin method. It's just printing and glueing an paper model than covering it with resin and fiberglass cloth. Unfortunately the process is a bit mundane so that's just a work in progress.

Soooo... Enough talk, here are the photos:







And one with my underscaled backpack. Another one is being glued right now:

Ha ha don't worry, it's not dead, it was just created yesturday. xD

That armour is very cool. What material are you using?

How does a man choose between fresh and fly?

Sorry, but guard ain't better xD When they lose morale, they scream "every men for himself!", but a stone-cold marine calmly informs "squad broken" :P

Yup, there's a guide. Visit www.405th.com for more info on this armormaking method ;p But this thingy would be too heavy to be used in paintball games ;p

Space marine = boring
guard = hilarious

and also they get bonus points because they are NOT genetically engineered super soldiers or brutal aliens or even equipped with the best guns.

no it is men with their rifles... Out gunned, out numbered and beset on all fronts. And yet they still hold

But, im still a rookie when it comes to armor making.... dreams are shattered.....

Oh girl, that's one, damn detailed armour. But, since it's more like a suit it won't be much armormaking (but that doesn't mean that parts you have to do will be easy).

For the most of the suit I would use well, latex fabric, like one seen on cheap leather imitating clothes. That design seems to be a lot of sewing, considering that you will probably have to sew plates and bodysuit together.

And for the plates, I would go for about 1.5mm sheet plastic formed with heat. I don't know how will it work with transparent PVC for the parts where you want LED's. I mean that sure, PVC will form in heat, but I don't know if it won't become kind of white instead of transparent. You have to check it out by yourself.

All in all for this armour I wouldn't reccomend using the "resin&fiberglass" method like the one with my armor. Reason is simple as hell - it would be too heavy. I'm using that one only because I need my armor to be hard, heavy and endure, so it will be usable for kind of show-off dueling - you know what I mean, two Space Marines fighting a duel with powerswords in the middle of the street, or something like that.

Hope that you've been able to figure something out of this post. Sorry for not-so-logical one, I know it's kinda gibberish but I'm really tired right now, its 3:30 AM here, in Poland! xD IDK what I'm doing here at THIS time :p

Time to go sleep, see ya!

I made that one all on my own, its the same character just a different version. I used posterboard for this one, but the next one i would like to use plexiglas or Wonderflex. I am an experiensed sewer, i just dont know how to work with the plexiglas. -_____-

Plexiglas and sheet plastic should be heat treated and then formed. After a couple of minutes in hot oven they should be bending like thick rubber. You will have to experiment with time, because it depends on the power of oven and thickness of material, but while heating remember, that sheet can't be melted so much, that it bends under its own weight.

After you get this nice, heated sheet of plastic you can bend it right in hands or on some kind of object which shape you need. That's the whole philosophy.
