Welcome to the board, Daniel! I'm working on a Commissar costume, too, so hopefully there will be some tutorials up on the subject soon. If you want help staying motivated, make a thread for your costume in the IG section and post your progress. What regiment are you thinking of?
Title: Introductions
Post by: Daitou on September 28, 2009, 03:39:00 AM
I'm not sure of the regiment, but it's likely going to be based on Commissar Holt's costume from the old Final Liberation game. If I were pressed, I'd say Valhallan - it would explain why I'm sweating like like crazy when it's above freezing.

Ooh, I know Commissar Holt. [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /> If you go Valhallan, look at the covers of the Ciaphas Cain books- they have some good Valhallan-influenced commissar art.

Yeah, I've seen Kaaskop's guide, some excellent stuff there. Between his guide and a few tips I've picked up on the Star-wars based 501st and the Halo-based 405th websites, I'm hoping to make 3 full suits by this Halloween.

Hi there, someone at Deviantart pointed me towards this forum!

I'll start with the same stuff you've done

Name: Daniel
Occupation: I'm studying to become a Pedagogue, and I have a nack for prop making in my sparetime..
Location: I live in Denmark
Other boards: Bolter and Chainsword, Warseer
Age: 22
Army: Chaos Marines, Grey Knights, Space Marines, Primarchs, Warhammer fantasy
Costumes: 40k based costumes: Rogue Inquisitor, Inquisitorial Stormtrooper Sergeant, Sister of Battle (Made for a specific event, to a very talented woman), Adeptus Arbeites Enforcer, Adeptus Mechanicus Tech Priest, Chaos Cultist, Imperial Guard and finally a Death Watch marine in progress...
Other: Wolf Predator costume, Various Fantasy costumes, Darth Vader, Storm Trooper and Clone Trooper..

Outside Interests: Reading, Watching movies, being with my girlfriend and friends, drawing, roleplaying, LARPing and more
Website: http://dezelith.deviantart.com/ (http://dezelith.deviantart.com/)

I've been the main drive behind a danish warhammer 40k LARP event. The campaign is called Imperial Gothic and features between 50-100 players. I've recently detached myself from the group because I feel we need new ideas and more "go" in the society. I'm working on a new WAR based 40k larp called "Kill team"

I'm just the usual guy who has too much spare time and too much stuff. I like to visit CONs and show off my personal costumes, though many of them are usually lent out to persons who don't have their own costumes..

Hey there Daniel, it was me who pointed you to our lil' forums, glad you've come for a look.
I noticed a few different 40k costumes in your gallery and I thought it'd be great to get some insight from someone who has been 40k cosplaying/LARPing for a while. Hope you like the look of what you see [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Hi there Macewolf, welcome to the forum!!

I must say that the whole fluff/novels side of the whole hobby.... but it only just pips the converting and painting of models. totally love that too. I also like the game and pretty much every aspect of the hobby, but the novels are my fav [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Maybe you could invest your next $400 in cosplay and show us the results [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' />

all i really need for the costume is a big grey coat, a staff, and a holster (staffs are ok, other weapons are banned unless purchased on site - they have foam mauls, barbarian style)

think you guys and gals could help me? megacon is in march and i want my first costuming event to be coolness personified.

(btw, very few people's first costumes are really good. It's possible, but it's really, really hard. You should have seen my first inquisitor costume... NOT the one that's posted in here. ^^[img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

It also really depends on how close you cut it time-wise. If you start a year early, it's going to be way better than if you start it a month before con.

My first inquisitor costume was started probably in February or March, for a Con in May. My second one was on and off from the end of con until the beginning of con the next year, and it turned out WAY better.

Steampunk LRP costume- that's a Games Master ribbon pinned to my lapel.

Fantasy LRP costume.

My replacement chainmaille is brass, I think (hand-me-down). It just needs a few more links added around the neck (so it doesn't sag around the shoulders) before I'd call it wearable. I also finished the ring-armor bracer which only has two lines of rings in that photo.

Hello Jordan! I remember you from cosplay.com- what city in the Bay Area? I'm in Menlo Park, about halfway between SF and San Jose.

I hope you get your Gaunt costume done by Comic-Con- if I'm the Saint, we need to get group pictures. [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Well, its more of a town, but Piedmont--the little enclave in the middle of Oakland.

I'm thinking of putting off Gaunt for a year, though--I'm not sure I'd exactly be able to explain what I'm doing satisfactorily to the other members of my household. But as I said, I'm only thinking, I'll probably do it anyway if I do anything. My backup plan is the previously mentioned Turkish Janissary, but I'm a little at a loss for that one as well.

With the amount of time you have before comic-con, it should be possible to get it done even if you work slowly and in fits and starts. Start a thread- it'll keep you motivated to keep trying, even if you don't finish this year.

HIya everyone.

name: Phil
other boards: loads really, Brassgoggles, UKG (501st), Firefight, Rpf, Aliens Legacy, TCSS + more
age: 37
army: none although I used to have an eldar army and about 200+ or the original plastic space marines
Costumes: Count Dooku, several Jedi, Ghostbuster, Colonial Marine, Stargate offworld greens, Alot of military loadouts
other intrests: LARP, lasertag, costuming, steampunk, airsoft, electronics and prop building

One of my main hobbies is scifi larp games using lasertag as a combat medium.  This got me into costuming and electronics/prop building.  Basic idea is the wepaons along with having sound/lights also fire a beam of infrared light.  This trigger small discrete sensors that other players wear and allows you to shoot them (and be shot).  Costuming then led me to other outlets for it like the 501st and conventions etc.  Ive built all sorts from Proton Packs to nuclear bombs with countdowns (http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />  Lightsabres are a bit of a passion of mine too.If theres a scifi genre then we have probably played it in the last 20 years (cant believe Ive been playing for 20 years).  From Aliens onwards.  There are several WH40K larp games in the planning stages for 2010 so I decided to do a bit of research as to whats been made before.  Anyone who searches comes across Kommissars excellent work which is what lead me here [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />Ive sort of been going through existing costume and looking at what can be repurposed/moddeed to suit the 40K setting.  I can probably pull off several different guard regiments with a bit of effort but I was thinking of using this as a base for an officer (Im the one on the right).  I wore it at a Steampunk event called The Asylum for the formal ball evening so wanted a 'faux' military uniform.[img]http://www.spartandesign.co.uk/pictures/asylum1.jpg)

I have a nice black wool longcoat that with mods could work, Ive been experimenting with etching some aquilas out of brass for the cap badge and weapon wise Ive started on a bolt pistol using a MP5 airsoft as a base.  Ive also got vague plans for a 'working' chainsword with moving big foam teeth.  Im also working on a las pistol and las rifle for friends.

I did build a bolter out of aluminium about 17 years ago for a friend but I havent seen him for about 12 years so Ive no idea if it still exists.  
(http://www.spartandesign.co.uk/tagtek/bolter2.jpg)
Its a bit plain by my current standards but I didnt have much in the way of tools back then.  Got a few more now  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />  The stock was added after as its very difficult to use without one when its made of metal lol (its removeable too).

Anyway Im sure I'll have fun reading here and kicking ideas round with everyone.

Oh and heres a few of my sabres and stuff:-

Falchion (http://www.spartandesign.co.uk/pictures/falchion.jpg)
Katarn Sabre (http://www.spartandesign.co.uk/pictures/katarn1.jpg)

Traitor's Hand has a couple digs about "Do you want to live forever?", and Amberly mentions him a couple times, though not by name.

Welcome, Vagabond and Phil! Vagabond, I remember you from cosplay.com. Neophyl, that officer costume is a couple purity seals and some insignia away from an Imperial Naval/Gaurd Officer- Commissar if you add a red sash and change the hat insignia to an aquila.

The part in The Traitor's Hand where a Khornate tank is about to fire at Cain's transport, and a group of Guardsmen scream "Come on men, do you want to live forever?" and charge up to it. Cain then remarks "They must have been on something. No one yells that outside of badly written combat novels."

I love the Mad Eye Moody I just want to know where I can get the eyeball equipment.
I'm still working on getting the eyball to move (unfortunately they used CGI so getting an eyeball sized object that doesn't stick out is difficult).  

For the static version:

1)  The brass is from a pipe I bought off eBay.  I drilled the screw holes with a drill press, then I cut a template out of PVC and had a friend who has a band saw cut the brass for me.  
2)  I used a dremel to smooth down the edges and do finally fitting.
3)  I had my friend cut a ring off the front which after rounding the edges (to enhance the cut edge) I JB Welded to the body of the eye piece.
4)  I then JB Welded small brass screws in the holes I drilled earlier.
5)  Used the Dremel to cut strap slots.
6)  The strap is a piece of 8 oz leather with a buckle on the back for tightening (for version 1 of the eye piecel I used a couple of dog collars).
7)  The eye was a halloween toy that I cut apart and repainted the iris and pupil (the toy I had was an eye with red streaks inside a clear globe, when you rolled the globe the eye would light up with LED's from inside.  I had to cut a small hole in the globe and drain out the mineral spirits inside, then broke the globe along the weld line.  Washed and dried the eye (think cleaning off mold release) and then light sanding to remove the blood shot effect.)  After I was satisfied with the paint job, I used a brush on gloss varnish ('ard Coat) and gave it a nice thick coat (multiple coats).
8)  To attach the eye to the leather strap I found a pill bottle that was the same diameter as the hole in the eye piece and cut off the bottom.  I then sprayed it black and glued the eye to it.
9)  One the eye was attached I glued the entire assembly onto the leather strap and against one wall to stabalize it.

One issue I had was that there was light coming in around the eye which gave me a headache eventually (it was enough light that my eye kept trying to focus on the leather strap).  Before I wear it again I'm going to use hot glue to seal the edges so no light comes through.  I'm also playing with a remote control golf ball to try and create a moving eye.

First proper costume I'm working on is Death Korps of Krieg. First version is finished, but it just needs more detailing.

Wait, what happened to my DKoK thread? It's not in the Guard forum. :\

Hello all,
Another James here.
I'm 25 and currently in SW England.
More of a painter/modeler than a player. I've been into 40k since I was about 8. I always loved the setting and have been running roleplaying games in it for years.
I must confess I'm normally more interested in propmaking than costuming. (Although I love seeing other peoples!) I've been making steampunk props, rayguns and such,  for a while but recently have been thinking about making some 40k things and came across this forum while looking at what others have made. After looking through everyones work I do feel inspired to have a go at a Techpriest outfit...

I'm moving to southern California for a few months soon and while there will have plenty of time to work on some new projects. Hopefully before I go  I will be able to complete the Servo Skull I'm working on.

Outside interests include, roleplaying, steampunk, reading warcraft, other geeky stuff, etc

Hello
I just registered here yesterday. Why? I'm so interested in Warhammer 40k and cosplaying so I thought this forum would be good place. My interest in Warhammer universe began some time ago, when I got better computer and started to play Down of War. I also started to read Warhammer 40k novels which are good. Now I'm reading The Ultramarines Omnibus. My boyfriend has been fan of Warhammer for many years and thanks to him, I'm also a huge fan of it.

My favourite race is either Space Marines or Sisters of Battle. I've not yet made any costumes but I'm really going to make at least Sister Repentia costume.

I live in Finland. I'm 17 years old (almost 18, my birthday is on 20th November). I have my own websites but they're only in Finnish. I have DA account (http://mehkas.deviantart.com/) if someone is interested in my artwork. There aren't so much art yet but I'm going to submit some Warhammer drawings and other things there some day. Nowadays I'm too busy because I have other things to do (school, comic projects).

I'm off to Lompoc, in Santa Barbara county. Going to be there till mid February.
Any advice for a Brit traveling there for the first time?

yeah, be prepared to beat off the ladies with a stick, any half attractive brit with a thick accent will have quite an adventure in the US.
Hahaha, just had to respond to this: It's true. British, Irish, and Scottish (to a lesser extent) accents in the U.S. will gather women like moths to a flame.
Yeah. I'm a happily married woman, but those accents can make me feel all squishy inside.  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

O HAI!

I have been costuming for about 25 years, and have been really into warhammer heavily in the last 5. For 10+ years I have run a gothic and dark fashion DIY site called Antimony & Lace (http://gothfashion.info).

I also make clothes, jewelry, and build things of a goth and steampunk nature. Since pictures are worth a thousands words each, I'll save some space...

You guys are wonderful!  I got roped into doing a guardsman costume by my friend who's doing a techpriest and you've already proved an great resource.

Name: Z
Aliases: Seraphim knows me as Blip-chan on Deviantart and I'm Blip on most other forums.
40k army:  I play Tyranids and want to start IG eventually.
Costuming:  I'm big on steampunk and make a lot of my own clothing.  This is my first attempt at anything 40k related and I'm worried about making a functioning lasgun.

@ Isinglass
If you look in the right place, you can find marmite in the states.  My dad, being a transplant, got me hooked on the stuff.  And as far as tea goes, Tazo makes a good earl grey.  And if you can find Typhoo tea, it is by far the best I've found anywhere, but its hard to get without ordering.

Even if it's shielded, it will probably be accurate in terms of power. Unshielded you'd have to say it was a hotshot pack or a longlas.

Alright, alright, I'm posting, I'm posting...

Hi there, the name's Rebecca but my friends call me Becca and I am sure that we are going to be friends.

If you know me anywhere else on the internet you know me a Dalvar.  It is a good name.  I like it

My first and only army on the table top is the Tau.  Those naive, blue, xenos had me at hello.  I use them most often against the Eldar and 'Nids.  Sometimes they ally with the 'Nids.  We still aren't quite so sure how that works.

For other 40k related fun I have recently joined a Dark Heresy campaign which is turning out to be quite entertaining [even if I can't manage to roll low to save my life.  A trait that is a boon in other games is a bane in this one].

Although I can [and sometimes do] write, most of my non-academic literary activity currently involves betaing other's work.  Something I seem to do quite well [they keep asking me to do it again, anyway].

I am not new to cosplaying [my Halloween costume in second grade was Totoro; me and my mother made it ourselves.  It was my very first cosplay] but I am new to cosplaying when it comes to 40k.

In the works is a Techpriest cosplay about which I am very excited.  With a father who worked in adaptive equipment I have a head start when it comes to making actual, moving, Mechadendrites.  I haven't seen any quality Techpriest cosplays around the internet so, with my burning love for the Adeptus Mechanicus, I intend to change that [wow, that didn't sound conceited at all].
It needs to be done by April.

Post by: Kommissar on December 18, 2009, 09:17:00 AM
welcome Coggirl, nice moniker also!
my suggestions, if i may be so bold,are simple, but things pretty important to new costumers.. if you know them already then you've got a headstart on most it seems.

Patience is a virtue, invest as much time into your project as you can, as soon as you can, the more time you "spend" now, the less panic you have when it come to april and "crunch time"
we all do it, but i certainly try to avoid it by starting early.

in direct connection to Patience, is the ability to throw something away if it doesn't work.. if you attempt something important to the costume in your "crunch time" and it turns out bad, then you may be forced to "settling" with something that can bring down the quality of your costume.  
make the same mistake when you have time to burn, and you can fix it, or if unfixable.. start again.
the collar i built for the sister of battle armor i made went through several incarnations that were utterly useless before we found something that worked, and other than learning how not to do it, the materials we used were wasted.
do i regret it? nope, because the costume would have been very very sad if we kept one of the older collar designs.. well one of the ones that wouldn't choke my wife that is... >.>

quality of materials is the other one, if you think a fabric is perfect for the costume, then get it, can't afford it? put money aside for it till you can,

a very wise man recently told me: Good, Fast, Cheap, for every project you can only pick two.

for example i prefer to use Sintra for armor, it's a little more pricey, but if you can find a plastics factory, you can get it very very cheap.
if your using cheaper materials, then you will need to put more time into it.. one of the saddest things i see is armor that should be a smooth shoulder plate, looking more like a battered cooking pot, because someone tried to sculpt it by hand, but didn't take their time.

i'm looking forward to making a tech priest in a few con seasons to go with a rogue trader crew a few of us are putting together, when i make my robe i plan to use a thick nice red wine velvet, not cheap.. buuut it's going to look awesome.

whether you listen to this advice or take it as me just rambling, alls well, but you sound very enthusiastic about 40k (quite rightly so!) and you've got everyone here to offer ideas and advice in your project, so if you don't know where to start or get stuck, don't suffer in silence.

Haha, wow!  What a warm welcome!

Jacobus- And that is why I have railguns.

I have not posted any pictures of my models anywhere because they are not all painted.  My Kroot and stealth suits would feel left out if I posted pictures of my army without them

Seraphim- Sleep is for the weak.

Kommissar- I am quite aware of the values of having a lot of time to build.  That is why I've already started planing out the Mechadendrites- they will take the longest out of everything.  They have already gone through multiple revisions and they haven't even left the page yet!

What I am trying to figure out now is a more lightweight [and maybe (hopefully?) cheap] material for the upper parts of the mechadendrites.  I am using wood for the lower sections as that is nice, sturdy, and stable but it is heavy and, although I will have it in a weight distributing harness, I want as few pounds of weight on my back as possible.

Cons are no fun when you are crushed under the weight on your own costume.

i'm also of both persuasions, so don't feel bad, means better quality.

look around in your yellow pages for local plastics factories or suppliers, i found one in san diego that if you buy in bulk (like pieces bigger than a door) you get some stella deals and very affordable.
i got a sheet of sheet styrene aka plasticard, that would normally be over 180 bucks worth if i bought it in small book sized squares sold at hobby stores, for around 20 bucks.

it may be alittle work, but finding suppliers for the materials you want to use are very valuable, and will help all of your future propworks [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

nothing wrong with taking time. make sure you make a notebook as you go along so you can see what and why you did this or that in the costume. might need to share some notes as you go along since I am also working on a TP costume but to help work out the bugs in my 'dendrite I have another project that requires similar work.

Greetings from the frozen wastes of Denmark!

My name is Thomas, though I usually go by Captain Thomas while on the internet.
I'm 20 years old and I've spent a majority of those years interested in Warhammer (Both 40k and Fantasy) and various forms of fiction in general. Despite all these years of interest, I have never managed to actually assemble an army... though I have both a Lizardmen and an IG army in the works. I do, however, have a rather large collection of various GW minis as I enjoy building and converting them.

I have always enjoyed costumes and excuses to wear them =)
The only costume I have a picture of is a pirate costume which can be found on my devianart page, but I have various pieces of clothing that can make some nice looking medieval outfits.
I found this place through deviantart as I was looking for pictures of commissars as I'm currently working on a commissar costume.

Hello everyone! Just found this place and figured I'd introduce myself as I think I have something usefull to add.

For a long time now I've been collecting anything and everything I could find on 40k costumes and props. Just recently I've combined and organized it all and posted it online here: http://www.angelfire.com/pa5/jdoud2/40kindex.html (http://www.angelfire.com/pa5/jdoud2/40kindex.html)

It's not a "complete" archive and I'm always adding more but I guarentee it's the most thorough collection of real-life 40k stuff you'll find in one place. What I don't have though is a forum or any way to discuss the stuff so I figure this will be a good place for that.  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/cool.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='cool.gif' />

So yea, I'm kind of just orienting myself on the whole 40k costuming thing and working stuff out in my head, still haven't figured out what I'd like to do, though i have most stuff for for a Krieg lying around... somewhere.

Fraid I don't have any recent pics of myself, haven't really taken pictures in ages.
I'll see if I can get around to making one (or rather, having one made).

Also, what kind of costume would fit with long hair? (cause im not planning to lose my glorious locks "cough" just yet )
Title: Introductions
Post by: Captain Thomas on March 30, 2010, 10:49:00 AM
Welcome =)
While most 40k images and such shows characters being either bald or having short hair, I wouldn't worry about it too much. I have long hair as well and it works fine with my commissar outfit... And there is always the option of simply hiding your hair under a hat or helmet etc.
Title: Introductions
Post by: Isinglass on March 30, 2010, 01:47:00 PM
Long hair would not be a problem for any Guard soldier, officer, etc. who is part of a unit raised on a feral or feudal world. And I'm sure a missionary's hair can be however they like. Rogue Traders with hair tied back or Space Wolves with wild long locks, there's loads of 40k looks for longer hairstyles.
Title: Introductions
Post by: Seraphim on March 30, 2010, 05:29:00 PM
Long hair can also be braided to fit in with the more "disciplined" guard units. As long as it's up to the tidiness standards of the unit in question, it shouldn't matter too much. [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Post by: MalleusIST on March 31, 2010, 02:38:00 PM
Another option you could go with in regards to a outfit.  Is also a Inquisitor, now granted most of those with long hair tend to be Hereticus.  But you could always pull of a rare Ordo Malleus or Ordo Xenos.

'Course, you could always go Chaos in your costumes, or even xenos with a few races.  Eldar mainly come to mind.

Hey, everyone!  I'm thinking of being a Commissar for a Halloween party in the distant future (and maybe for a con too, I haven't decided yet), so Google rerouted me to Kommissar's bolt pistol blog, and I followed a link from there to here!

I'm 15, and just getting into 40k.  I just finished painting my first miniature a few days ago, but I've been reading the fluff for a while.  Somehow, I think 40k is something I'l be into for a long time [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

Yeah, you guys are what gave me the idea in the first place.  I wanted to do something 40k, but I didn't know what I could do--and like I said, I've only recently been introduced to the franchise, so I didn't know what would be an interesting costume.

Then I saw toydivision's and jet texas' commissars, and I went back through the board and opened everything that looked like it might be related to the commissariat, and by the time I finished reading them all (I'm looking at toydivision especially here; 15 pages!?), I figured, "I might be able to do this!"

So, if you think about it, it's all your guys' fault [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' />

I'm a software developer and serial player from France  ( tabletop rpg, wargame, larp, ... ) and I've been murking around in the w40k universe since the rogue trader edition ( which makes me...ancient).
For now I'm putting together a comissar costume for a larp/airsoft event, which means it'll have to be both stylish AND functional and the forum has been a formidable help so far.

I also do a lot of 3D (solid) modeling, which is how I've been planning a lot of the stuff I'm working on.

I've got a Thunder Hammer that I finished up not too long ago to go with some Terminator armour, which I just put on hold to work on something a little more insane, so I'll post some photos of that in a thread shortly for anyone interested [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /> There some other little stuff too which should be of interest as well.

I recognize a few usernames from around the net and at least one from the so called "real world" so hello to those I (kinda) know [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Army: Mostly chaos, but some tau
Deviantart page: http://stellusluopguru.deviantart.com/ (http://stellusluopguru.deviantart.com/)

I have no experience with costuming, and the only things of any note I've made have been a wooden sword, a bolt-pistol, and a chain-sword.  None of which are done.

I hope to do 3 Chaos space marines and a chaos sister of battle, and at some point a chaos terminator down the road, but I've got a long way to go first.  

So hi everyone!

Hi everybody!

Name: Jeremy
Age: 23
Army: Witch Hunter, when I played the miniatures game.

I've found a love bordering on obsession with the 40K universe, and I've decided to take that to it's ultimate nerdy conclusion and make some costumes. Only played the miniatures game for a couple months before I ran out of available funds. I've found I enjoy playing the Dark Heresy game infinitely more anyway. If anyone else plays, especially play-by-post, let me know. I also enjoy most other types of tabletop games, and just kicked my WoW habit.

As far as costumes go, I'm thinking Guardsman (since I have the primer), and sanctioned psyker. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Don't know what regiment for my Guardsman yet.

Heh, I know there's a regiment I've not seen anyone around here do.  And that's the Necromundan 8th "Spiders".

As for Dark Heresy, amongst my group of friends.  I'm the guy who runs it, I've gotten my baby campaign built up, and probably sometime this month or next month. :-D

Army: Loyalist factions. I don't play the tabletop and probably never will. I love the fluff and the games like you wouldn't believe. I want to try some DH and some of the RP stuff, but as far as I know there aren't any groups running on Maui - and none of my friends are into that sort of thing.

Other boards: Bolter and Chainsword, Mandalorian Mercs, 405th

Website: Facebook (Feel free to add me) (http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=751053296)

Pretty new to the whole costuming thing. Forging ahead with it despite my areas apparent lack of interest in costuming in general. I am not much for soft costumes, I have always been a huge fan of suits of armor and weapons - so I have stuck to that in the limited time I've been costuming.

Bit about me: I am currently a college student majoring in IT and network development. I have two jobs to pay for living expenses and school. I have more free time then I should, mostly because I don't take that many credits a semester.
I like to drink and party - generally do all the things a 20some college student would do. I also like to build armor.

Serving eldritch abominations is FUN!  You should try it.  Excellent retirement benefits, great-looking female co-workers, cheerful office equipment (and if it breaks, you can always get MORE since it's cheap) and nothing short of utter annihilation gets rid of your friends at the office.

@Wookiee
I had a little bit of soul and energy left after DragonCon; figured I'd use it before I got back to work and sacrificed it all on the altar of non-productive productivity (Running on a hamster wheel has a certain zen to it, one supposes...) Sadly the site refused to load at work, but it was a time-out thing as opposed to a 'Work DOES NOT LIKE YOU!' at the site.

I'm a relative newcomer to the costuming groups but I've been making/fabricating parts of costumes for my friends for a few years. I want to bring a bit of realism to the 40k costuming scene and hopefully raise the bar a bit. Foam and plastic just doesn't cut it for me.

I guess being a jack of all trades and having disposable income for these projects helps considerably.  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/cool.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='cool.gif' />

The armsman kit is not based on anything directly from GW (just influenced by them)

I was going for a 'Medevil Man-at-Arms and SWAT' combo

Will be needing a dress uniform soon though which will be heavily based on the Jes Goodwin sketches you mention

Will post up some pics in the relevant forum bit soon

Hello all,

I figured I may as well stop lurking, register and introduce myself...

Name: James
Alternate handles: ozorion
Other boards: Nothing specific to this hobby other than the one attached to my website (see below)
Age: 32
Army: Inquisition, Space Marines & Imperial Guard
Costumes: No full 40K costumes yet, some props finished
Outside Interests: Roleplaying (including Live Action), PC/XBox Gaming, Theatre, Reading, Shooting, General Handyman Stuff
Website: www.the-unbound.com

I originally discovered the Obscurus Crusade website through a link from Death Unto Darkness which was referred to me by one of the players in an upcoming project I'm working on.

I've been very active in designing and presenting live action roleplaying chronicles for the last twelve years in Sydney. While my past projects have been standard White Wolf Vampire stuff or generic fantasy, I figured the time had come to involve my Warhammer 40,000 interest and the published systems like Dark Heresy, Rogue Trader & Death Watch made that more approachable.

I had the idea of creating a multi-format storytelling system using tabletop gaming, live action gaming and wargaming to product a single narrative and thus the Unbound was born.

The basic concept of my game is that players represent various Rogue Trader or Imperial characters involved in the starting steps of an Imperial Crusade in to a rediscovered sector of space. Live action games will drive the majority of the storyline as the various key figures meet to discuss new plans and the success or failure of past ones.

In between each LARP (planned to be about 3-4 months apart) tabletop games will be run where the various crews etc go about the task of bringing their plans to fruition, and where a large scale conflict occurs, the wargaming rules can be used to determine the outcomes.

I've got people signed up to play in one, two or three of the formats and we ran our proof-of-concept game in December 2010. Currently we're scheduled to start the first actual game of the setting on January 29th.

Obviously this presents a lot of options for our players to design and produce 40k'esq costumes. As one of the designers I'll have limited ability to do costuming but my wife is playing so I'll be able to live vicariously through her costuming attempts, and of course I'm working on a lot of props for the game.

Anyway, I look forward to chatting with all of you and sharing ideas. I've been lurking on these forums for a few months now and I've already seen what a dynamic, friendly, and resourceful bunch you all are.

Ohhh, I hadn't thought about a COG. I'm not a massive GoW fanboy but I certainly enjoy the games and, let's face it, COGs are pure badassness anyways. I'd love to do a Nathan Explosion costume but I don't have near the muscle he does and I shave my head so I'd look weird with long black hair.

I think I've decided on starting out with an Inquisitor costume before stepping up to full Space Marine armor. Since I have no experience in making costumes I'll just make a chest plate for the Inquisitor and work my way from that.

Thank you for the welcome and the ideas everyone.

Hello all,

I stumbled upon this board while looking for costume reference pictures for the Commissar uniform I'm currently making. Wow! What a resource this place is, I can't wait to look around some more.

A bit about myself, I've been a historical WW2 re-enactor for a little over six years, which in a way is similar to cosplaying aside from the fact that we run around in the woods instead of convention centers. Not much else differs. I've always been interested in 40k, and only recently decided to dive into making a costume. This is the first time I've ever made something like this, so it's a lot of new territory to cover.

For those curious, my re-enacting covers Soviet and German WW2. I'll throw a few pictures of my historical commissar's uniform up for the curious...

Awesome! May I ask what unit?
19th GMB out of Marion KY... I learned a good few things:

1. When people yell "Duck" don't pop your head out of cover.. You get hit in the head with stick grenades
2. That whistling sound is a mortar shell.. Do *not* step out of your trench/emplacement/shack bit. You will be covered in babypowder whilst the unit is 'setting range'
3. That chattering sound is an MG-42. You know it. The Commander knows. You're still going over the hill 'to check and see'
4. 5 degree weather means your fingers WILL stick to the bolt of your rifle. And warm/hot water makes it worse.
5. DON'T EAT THE SOUP!
6. Germans do not like it when the Soviet put on Kraut hats and walk into their camp, eat at mess, then set off strings of grenades and turn their own guns on them.
7. Your tent mate can and will replace your 'combat knife' with a spoon.. And no, this does not mean when you stab the SS officer with said spoon it is a kill.

And most importantly...
8. You can, but shouldn't, use a PPSH as a night light/cigarette lighter

I've been costuming since high school, and am transitioning to custom clothing and costuming professionally. While I don't have anything specifically 40k in my portfolio, I draw from many of the same influences. JohnnyStump told me about this site while discussing a coat for him. The last few years seeing more 40k costumes  at Dragon*con has been giving me ideas...

Hey all, great place you got here. Djinn refered me to this board after I was bombarding him on facebook with questions- great guy very helpful!

I'm a huge warhammer 40K fan. I love the books and games but I haven't touched the table top. I've toyed with the idea but I suck at painting.

I've  wanted to make a space marine costume with a view to bringing it to our yearly halloween party at work- it's a big project. I'm like a kid in a candy store here looking at all the beautiful works of art you guys and girls have made.

I've decided to start small and my first few projects will be the every cool Purity Seal.  I have the thread about making them and I just found the thread on lain phrases.  I'm completely out of my element with this stuff, I've never been artistic or creative but I'm going to give it a shot.  Hope you all take my newbie questions with a grain of salt. if anyone has any threads they could recomend me geared towards purity seals or latin/warhammer quotes please feel free to post or PM me
 Cheers all!

I've been playing 40K of and on since the early 90's and have always wanted to make a suit of Space Marine armor. Found you guys when searching for costumes and really have enjoyed the works of art you guys have come up with here.

A friend and I were discussing making Space Marines for us and a SoB for his wife for Halloween. I am thinking since the SoB is Inquisition we should do Grey Nights. Besides how can you beat gauntlet mounted Storm Bolters and Nemesis Weapons. Right?

And wouldn't you know I had absolutely zero experience with this before I started. However, through brute force I've got a good technique down now.[img]http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/Shazmybot/IMG_0171.jpg)
(the breastplate slipped just before this was taken.)

I've complete just about everything in pep so far and almost everything is resin'd and fiberglassed (the larger shoulders excluded). My ultimate goal with this suit will be to pass the information and techniques along to several friends so we can con-crawl as a squad of Marines. We're leaning towards Blood Raven colors at this point, but I'm always hunting for chapters that peak my interests.

Other than that, I look forward to building and learning more down the road with you guys.

My son got me hooked on DragonCon about ten years ago and we have been going ever since.

You guys have awesome stuff and I can't wait to meet some of you at the Con. I would play the video game, but I am old and as my son says, "You'll be dead in 5 seconds!" so I just look at all the cool artwork and costumes and read wiki notes.

My issues have been resolved, though my wife is still awaiting more tests and more doctors. I likely wont be producing much in the way of costume work, but i am now free enough to be able to keep up and hand out again! On the upside, I now have a fully functioning left foot and ankle!
Erus - welcome back!

Sorry to hear things have been so crap for you lately [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' />  Will you be able to make it to DC now, or is it still too soon?
This year is a negatory. I didnt even get a single costume done, so while I could have stretched to be there.. D*C without a costume is just... Wierd... And currently, the money is best spent elsewhere, especially with us not knowing the full extent of my wife's illness yet.

I've been costuming for about two years now and I love it. I really want to do a space marine, but think I might start with something a little simpler like a guardsman (Elysian) or a scout (Raven Guard).

Outside Interests: Reading, video games, drum and bugle corps, music in general. I'm balancing the budget for this costume between my tabletop army and buying a new xbox/building my computer so that's an interesting challenge. Especially since I want to get this costume put together and nice looking relatively quickly.

So yeah. I don't know how it is with most people here but though I'd first heard of and seen it in high school I didn't really get into 40k till last summer through Dawn of War 2 and started painting my first army this past spring(yeah yeah, everyone does Space Marines, I know). DragonCon, and my costume as well this year, I kinda just went and did with not much planning. I wanted to meet some friends and the people I was supposed to go with did 40k costumes at MegaCon so I wanted to fit in a bit with them walking around.

I'm glad I found you guys though and managed to get a tag for the parade, that was a blast, definitely looking forward to another round of that next year, though hopefully through help here with a better costume heh.

Hello there, saw the group from this board at Dragon*Con recently in the parade.  Tried to find some of you walking around the con afterwards but hard to spot specific people on purpose in those huge crowds sometimes.

I'm still new to overall costuming, but love building props.  My favorite that i've made is a tie between a mask for Kroenen from Hellboy (I made it out of a gourd I steamed into shape and filled with tons of random bits) or a two hander - chainsword (thing is heavy, made out of wood).  My Servo-Skull named Bones is also dear to my heart though

I go to Dragon*Con in Atlanta every year, this past one was my 10th year, and i've already got my ticket for next year.  I held off on doing any costumes this year to give myself a breather as I tend to work on too many projects at once and end up defeating myself in doing so.

Love the tutorials everyone here posts on their process and looking forward to getting into more advanced armor making (my experience for armor has just been with EVA foam and Wonderflex)

Welcome.  Love the Tzeentch book.  Mind doing a walkthrough on how you did the symbol?
Title: Introductions
Post by: Sept on September 16, 2011, 06:43:00 PM
Thank you!

The symbol I actually just sculpted by hand out of Super Sculpey and epoxied onto the book.  I sculpted the overall shape and then cut it into three pieces.    The center eye piece and the two other parts of the flame. There is a bit of distortion and the 3 pieces don't match up too well due to moving the pieces around a bit too much before baking them, but hey it's Tzeentch, you can't make Chaos uniform I guess.

Painted it dark blue with a thinner (as in less wide, not thickness of paint) lighter blue ontop.  The eye is just clay as well, hand painted.  You can't see it too well from the photo but there are red veins in the corners of the eye.

If I were to make another, I would use Apoxi Sculpt instead of the Sculpey so I could just sculpt directly onto the book and avoid having to bake and glue it down. Also, for the eye I would either get a glass eye from a Taxidermy suppy store such as found here
http://www.vandykestaxidermy.com/Eyes-C2.aspx (http://www.vandykestaxidermy.com/Eyes-C2.aspx)
I especially like the reptile ones.
or get a blank glass eye and paint my own (have yet to do this, but want to try)

Greetings all!

Glad to be here and I have to say this is easily my favorite WH40K forums ever!

I LOVE seeing the amazing props and costumes on display here and can't wait to start showing off some of my stuff.

I have been a 40k fan since 1988 but I don't tabletop anymore due to a few cross country moves (2200 miles is a long way to haul armies).  I have been running a Dark Heresy campaign since the game released however, and I love making props and relics from the universe.  40k is far and away my favorite sci-fi setting as the shelves of my Black Library novels can attest to.  I'm also extremely lucky to have found a wife who loves the universe as much as I do, and supports my gaming and prop building!

Someone linked my etsy shop and the Imperial Guard inspired medals of honor that I made already, and I'm currently working on a life sized bolt pistol and an inferno pistol that I'll be showing off in a couple of weeks.  

I'm really happy to be here and I can't wait to see more and contribute more to the forums.

The Emperor Protects!

Hey Guys,

Every year at D*Con, I think to myself that I want to go in costume (you really feel like you are missing out on most of the fun when not in costume).  I want to do something cool and unique that you don't see too many people do.

Over the last year, I've been slowly getting back into 40K (I'd stopped playing at the end of 2nd ed. due to various reasons), and after seeing a decently large group of 40K cosplayers at Dragon*CON, I decided that I wanted to try to make a set of Space Marine armor.  I've lurked on here on and off before then checking out some of the really cool cosplay before now, but now I'm going to join in.


...after the wedding.  Getting married at the end of Oct, everything-time,money,etc is going to that, after that however- going to work on a set of Salamander armor.

Hello to all.
My name is Fernando.

 I am 33 years old.

I am spanish and I have found this forum accidentally when it was looking for some reference on suits of warhammer.

I have a uniform of imperial official of Star Wars in black color and I have the intention of obtaining a suit of imperial commissioner of the Warhammer 40k to increase my collection.


I and could verify that the suits that have some of you have an excellent quality.
I do not play with my Warhammer's figures, only I paint them and collect them and only I have some small of space marines, the empire and one or two of orks.

I expect to manage to teach you promptly some photo of my commissair uniform even I do not have any part but if that I and could find any reference in ebay and other shops online.

P.D.: Excuse if my English is difficult to deal, but it is necessary to that I use a translator online.

Hello  all,  My  name  is  Matt  but I  go  by  Matsu, Matsuo  or  Matsucorp or any combination  therein on teh  interwebz.

I'm most likely much  older than most of you, I've been working in the  creative  service industry for well over 20 years  but I've  worked in arts and hobbies  for the most part all my  life, my  first job was at a hobby  shop and I pretty much  stayed in  the  biz in one way or another ever since. I also  work security part time as the need arises,  usually in clubs or at shows and  concerts.

Currently I'm a full time  freelance prop maker, I've done  blasters  for BSG, I've made production  prototypes  for licensed prop replicas and have done short promotional runs for video game licensees.

Lately Id say  within the past few years I've gotten the 40k Prop and  costume  bug.

Rather than  clutter this post up  with  all my  pix  heres my photobucket warhammer folder.

http://s171.photobucket.com/albums/u307/Matsucorp/Warhammer/ (http://s171.photobucket.com/albums/u307/Matsucorp/Warhammer/)

Heres one of my  recent commissions of  which I'm  most proud.

The long las, it's fully modular,  all the  major sub assemblies are removable and  can be  changed or modified as needed,  the  barrel and  silencer are threaded and can be unscrewed so  it's not so tough to  transport.

(http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u307/Matsucorp/Warhammer/longlas001.jpg)

To be honest I'm  not sure what I'm  doing next but I do have a comission  for some Vindicare assassin pieces  so I may just  finish  those next.

I've kept within the realm of the  guard but I will definately start crossing over to the  Astartes with  bolt pistols etc... things  that  could be used by  both  marines and imperial guard.

My dream  costume that I hope to start on this year  will be  the Inquisitor Eisenhorn, I'm going to  start  on the books  so I can  get a feel  for the charachter before I  start on the  costume.

It's good to be here  I hope I can add positively  to the collective and work towards the glory of the Imperium!

Hello, New to the boards, but I have been around the Universe for let's say couple of years.  I got into 40k right after I moved to Florida when I was 12.  I found a damaged pack of Space Marines for $1 and knowing that was about all my dad could afford at the time I was more than happy with my little men even if the pack was missing an arm and the bases.

What did I know, and the guy at the shoppe made me feel really good about all the modifications I could do to these guys.  I've been hooked ever since.

Now 25 years later, holy BLEEP ME... has it been that long?  I've started making costumes for my kids.  I started at the 405th with Halo armor for my daughter but now I am looking at making something for myself. And the only thing I would possibly want is a Space Marine Suit.  A Beaky Suit! Just like the ones I used to play with when I was younger.

I've started woriking on a helm about two years ago and lost some ome my other pieces due to time money and the humidity.  If you don't glass your PEPs right away here they card stock tends to warp and get soggy.

Now I ma looking at the foam meathod and maybe just maybe I will get more parts finished over hte next few months.  If not I will enjoy lurking around here checking out all the really cool stuff everyone else is building.

A side note, I am learning Maya and 3Dstudio Max and I have Pep Designer but I have to get it all re-installed on my new operating system, so I might get around to creating and rendering some files for people to play with.

So I will see you all around the boards.

Is anyone building Eldar Suits and having any success?

Chwbcc, welcome to the boards.  I hope you enjoy your time here with the boards, as for a Eldar costume.  We've got two people off the top of my head who's threads to stalk.  Those are the Farseer by Toy, and our Dire Avengers/Guardians by Anngul.

Hello all! Seems another Newbie has found his way into this board.

I'm 29 years old, live in south-western Germany. I got quite a few contacts to the Warhammer world in the past years. I'm no expert in the WH40k (or classic) but I know my way around this dark, grim and violent world. I'm a scientist (physics) and therefore free time is one of my most valuable ressources.

I've not really experience in costume-building. But I love to build and craft stuff. I've some experience in paperworks (e.g. built a life-size Frostmourne sword (http://www.oh-my-strogg.de/stuff/frostmourne1.jpg) from WOW once for my girlfriend), I've experience with electronics and 3D technical drawing software (planned and built a multicopter (http://www.oh-my-strogg.de/kopter/copter_startklar.jpg)). Oh, and speaking of time-consuming work - a couple of yeras ago I made a chainmail shirt of about 30k 10mm steel rings, too, although I've no pic at hands right now. I hope that tells something about my skills and determination to go through with such a project.

I want to create an Alpha Legion Chaos marine. For, this, I've created a therad here (http://z6.invisionfree.com/Obscurus_Crusade/index.php?showtopic=859&st=0#entry2885190).

Hello everyone [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Well what can I say, and will any of you read it if I do? Lol.

I started modelling in 40K when I was about 8 so that must have been about.... (32, minus the wrinkles, carry the ...) a while ago anyway, I remember the first thing I tried to paint was a Disc Rider of Tzeench in epic scale.... I was using an old makeup brush of my mums..... Needless to say that didn't go well but it didn't put me off either [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /> I made Airfix kits before that but didn't enjoy it any more and something pulled me into Warhammer.

I played a few games and didn't enjoy it but the painting and modelling side were what I really loved so i have been playing with it ever since.

I love to be creative and I am too into fancy dress for my own good I think so a few years ago I decided I wanted a Storm Trooper outfit having had some success with an Optimus Prime suit I made out of card [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />
I looked into the 501st and was soon put off my the sheer scale of effort required, then I found the 405th and having had a long love affair with HALO, I started on an MC suit. It was going really well but sadly it didn't survive several short house moves so it went into the bin.

I love the pepakura thing but I am having a nightmare now because I have a Mac and it won't run Pepakura, I also don't want to load any Microsoft stuff on here really....

I loved making the paper/fibreglass parts to the MC armour and now I am trying to fabricate a Green Ranger outfit for a young lad I know. Not having much success there either to be honest due to the whole Mac/pep thing [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' />

I am seriously considering buying a cheap laptop though just to run Pepakura because I really want to have a go at making a Mk6 Space Wolves suit for me as well as an Eldar helmet for a close friend of mine who also started painting Epic figures with me using inappropriate tools all those many years ago!

So thats me really apart from the other stuff I am into, motorcycles, rock music and surfing etc lol.

I hope to see you all around the forums [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Matt.

Hey Guys,

I just happened to stumble on upon your site and i've had a very brief look and man i'm blown away.

I've gotten into costume making only over the past 2 years or so, mostly predator suits etc some of my stuff can be seen here Colms Monster Madness (http://www.colmsmonstermadness.com)

I've been contemplating a space marine and had one PDO file on my computer, i had searched for others but with out much success, but man there is no shortage here... now the problem i have is to decide which one to do (First that is haha).

I look forward to talking with you guys and hopefully starting a build thread myself ..

cheers
Colm

Hello!

Never ever used this system before so I'm a total Noob and I've got a Lot of reading to do. I already have all the files to print but I still need to understand the programs to use them (and scale them as I'm Just 5'9" tall with an average to slightly big build).

So I'll be bugging you guys every now and then trying to get the armor pieces right (not good enough but as best as I can get them to be)

cheers and see you all in the frontlines! We March For Maccrage!  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/14623/129/emo/0f352eae45b08d26760469319a4704f6.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='0f352eae45b08d26760469319a4704f6.gif' />

Hello everyone,
I'm a long time lurker... but I figure it is time to start participating more....
Here is some quick bits about me ======>

Name: DaVe
Occupation: I'm a computer nerd by day and a general geek by night
Location: I live in Ohio, USA
Alternate handles: DaVe or Fup Duck (or just Fup)
Other boards: 501st.com, 300dc.com and a few others
Age: 38
Army: I've collected Tyranid and Space Marine miniatures, but I don't play the game (just like to paint).  I now tend to gravitate towards Sisters of Battle and Grey Knights.
Costumes:  I currently have no 40K costumes, but I have a few Star Wars costumes (501st Standard Stormtrooper and Tusken Raider).  I also enjoy doing Macabre costumes & horror make-up.
40K Costume Queue:  I'm still trying to decide what to make first, but the 40K Costuming bug has bit me hard.  I'm thinking of creating an Inquisitor, a sister of battle (yes, I'm a dude... just complicates things), Big-Hat Commissars, or a Space Marine (chapter unknown yet).  My ambition is high; my decision making skills are still in development.
Outside Interests: LOVE LOVE LOVE Dark Heresy RPG!!!  Also into Star Wars, Aliens, most Sci-Fi in general really.  I enjoy watching and playing many sports (yes, I said sports).  I read a variety of genres.  I'm into writing.  My guilty pleasure is Castle (TV Show w/ Nathan Fillion for those living under a rock) and a variety of reality TV shows (I can hear everyone gathering he nails to crucify me already)  *grin*
Website: None worth mentioning.... yet

I am planning to be at DragonCon 2012 in a 40K Costume this year.  We shall see what I arrive in...

This is going to be my first attempt at costuming. I have loved Warhammer 40k since the first Dawn of War but I must admit all of my knowledge stems from the games.

I was thinking about maybe starting with an Imperial guard to get me into it and work out some bugs. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Welcome, Matt! IG is definitely a good place to start. Commissar is also a costume that can be simple or complex, depending on your skill level. Inquisitor is good if you want to do more of an original design, and like the commissar, can be found in thrift shops with some modifications and small props.

 [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/ohmy.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='ohmy.gif' />

I mean your My Little Ponies, I mean not that they are 'MY' ponies but your ponies...

 [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' />

And I am not trying to say that your ponies are "Little" either. I think they are cool?

[img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/unsure.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='unsure.gif' />

I don't know if it's proper to actually say that someone's ponies are cool?

[img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/blink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='blink.gif' />

And since you are new to the site, I've probably scared you away by talking about your ponies like this but if you happen to stay.

Facebook! You love Facebook! (http://www.facebook.com/danimal.jenkins)

I've been looking for a big project to work on as I had nothing new to take to DragonCon this year; so I figured I'd do a SM costume. Not sure what chapter colors. Started playing 40K way back in Rogue Trader days, but haven't in the last 2 years or so. I always loved the mythology and art more than losing to whatever the newest overpowered Codex was. Stupid Tyranids.

I've only been doing costumes for the last 3 years, but it has been the most fun I've ever had. Last year at D*Con I was the orange Alley Viper that marched in the parade with Cobra's Finest... actually it's the only orange Alley Viper in existence... so yeah. I was also the pink/yellow Macho Man that was wandering around with Rowdy Roddy Piper and Miss Elizabeth.

So after deciding on making a SM costume, I stumbled upon this forum while looking for pep files for the armor. So far I've started on the bolter, going to start on the boots and lower leg sections this weekend.

So hi everyone!

Mostly back.. I decided to injure myself this time. I'm back, but it looks like I got a bit to digest before I step back into trying to armor up. Blacksmithing is rather addicting though, so don't blame me if I disappear for days on end, i'm just hitting things with a hammer and playing with fire.

2200 degrees Fahrenheit and sparks/slag from forge welded [damascus] steel forging or bronze casting will actually just light the bandana on fire unless you soak it in water. And then you're breathing in pure humidity and it dries out every 5 mins.

According to my wife, I look like an angry bouncer now.

And since I've found this forum, and feel like this can be achieved. Specifically I need help with the Pauldrons (Shoulder pieces). My brother is helping me with the chest and such, but the shoulder pads are up to me. So if anyone can help a novice cosplayer with this issue, I'd be greatly in your honor!

It's not a "Lack of Love" it is the fact that we have members who spend so much time posting pony stuff on a 40K board that they don't have time posting 40K stuff.  It's a moderation thing.  Seeing a very well done Ultramarine Pony, cool.  Having to read 3-5 pony comments for every on-topic comment, not cool.

Now, stop talking about ponies and get back to talking about your Scout!   [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />
I used to really enjoy ponies, (http://fav.me/d4ddib6) but it's been run into the ground. I am glad I'm not the only one who feels this way!

I still enjoy the ponies as well.  But I'm trying to behave and not constantly post stuff 'bout 'em up here.  'Less it's 40k related as well.

Hey all, I've been lurking this forum for a little while now and finally decided to make an account. New to costuming but would love to take a crack at it (particularly a Space Marine/Librarian/Inquisitor). Was introduced to the Warhammer 40k universe through the Dawn of War games for PC. Since then I've played every single one (except Retribution, I'm getting to it) and love them all. Also looking into getting some of the books. Anyways, nice to meet you all and I look forward to being able to contribute in the future [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Howdy all ,not much to say been played 40K since Ed1 lost interest when Ed 3 pretty much ruined the game with some silly rule changes,poor models,and my job started to take up way too much time. I played 'Nids and Imperial Guard as well as some Templars and Grey Knights thrown in. I really enjoyed scratch building and kit bashing.

Last year I attempted a pep beakie helm in 1:1 but again real life intruded and am currently unable to devote the time it deserves to the hobby.Ultimate goal was to get 3 helms done 1MK VI "Beakie" ,1 MkVI I, and a MK V done as a World Eater Berserker helm. Alas I doubt I will get the time to get the projects completed..although I would gladly commission one or all to be roughed out..lol.

Anyhow that's me,for what its worth I am currently employed as an Infantryman with the Canadian Army,at the lofty rank or Warrant Officer which has taken all my spare time up,but will continue to lurk here and drool over the excellent work done here by most.

Cheers

Name: Rob
Age: 20
Location: London, UK
Army: Way back in the mists of time, I used to collect Word Bearers, although they've been lying untouched in a case under my desk for the better part of seven or eight years now.
Costumes: None yet
Outside interests: Ju jitsu, reading, video games

As I said above, it's a long time since I've done anything with a 40k miniature. I've thought about taking it up again several times in the past few years, but I've not had the time or the money; or, frankly, the space to paint them! Added to that, I'd really have to start all over, as I'm not so much of a fan of Chaos as I once was - the Imperial Guard is my army of choice these days. I've stuck with the franchise, though, in the form of the excellent Dawn of War and Space Marine video games, and I've recently got into the Gaunt's Ghosts novels.

Also as I said above, I've not really made any costumes yet. This obviously doesn't count things like Halloween and fancy dress parties, where I've put a fair amount of effort in, but I wouldn't take those sorts of things to cons. I'm very much a novice at costuming.

A costume that I'd like to make is that of an Imperial Commissar (I know, ten a penny, but they just look so cool). I don't have an awful lot of time or money to put into it, and I'd like it to look good, not 'budget', so this will be very much a long term project, but I hope one of these days to be able to be able to stand proud, feeling fully able to bellow, "FIGHT, YOU DOGS! YOU WILL STAND YOUR GROUND AND FIGHT, OR FACE THE EMPEROR'S WRATH AT MY HAND!"

Another (somewhat easier) costume I'd like to put together is the battledress of the Tanith First-and-only. With a little luck and inspiration, I hope to have that one ready for the London MCM Expo in October.

The Emperor protects.

Post by: Justicar Kira on June 09, 2012, 08:10:00 AM
Greetings!

I am Justicar Kira (I usually go by Sixth Kira on forums, but I'm a massive Grey Knights fan and this is a 40K forum, so I figured, why not?). I'm looking to get into cosplaying, as I am an avid HvZ player (look it up - it's some of the best fun I've ever had) and I am a huge Warhammer 40K fan. I was discussing the game with one of my squadmates the other day when he suggested, 'why not go dressed up as someone from 40K or something?'. I realised that he had stumbled upon gold, and have now signed up here.

Name: I'd rather that I just be called by my username (I make a point of not telling people my name on the internet - I'm quite paranoid).
Alternate handles: Sixth Kira.
Other boards: Fanfiction.net, HvZ forums; but for anything related to WH40K, this is my first dedicated forum.
Age: Paranoia, 'nuff said.
Army: Grey Knights FTW, although I don't mind the Eldar (and if they ever come out with a Raven Guard army, I am SO THERE).
Costumes: None so far.
Outside Interests: Writing, HvZ, internet roleplaying, anime (as my username suggests).
Website: None.

Anyway, as a COMPLETE newbie to the hobby, I'm going to require an alarming amount of help. I'll try not to bother everyone too much, though.

The first thing to note about all of my costumes is that, first and foremost, they will be designed to be durable. Since I'll be wearing it to HvZ, it has to stand up to a fair bit of running around in, as well as being banged against plastic guns, and falling over. Consequently, I suspect that I may have to perform some rather unusual innovations. Fortunately, I am quite knowledgeable on hard plastics, due to experience making homemade Nerf guns for HvZ.

My plan for my first build is an Inquisitorial outfit with Carapace Armour (assuming I get around to actually getting all this done, which is no real guarantee). After that, I'm going to go on to trying to emulate Brother-Captain Colin's Grey Knight Terminator (is my envy of that costume detectable through the screen?).

So... that's about where I'm up to.

Also, because I'm a COMPLETE idiot, out of curiousity, would anyone be able to link me to a thread with a guide on the basic construction of Space Marine armour (i.e. materials used, etc.), and ideas for something to model my Inquisitorial outfit off.

Please do not murder me for my heresy/idiocy.

Welcome..     you'll be much better off asking questions in the Spacemarine forum, though since you're new, I'll throw you a couple of answers here. [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Follow the link in my signature for one example of a build thread, there's plenty more in the spacemarine area.   Many people base their costumes on 3D models which can be converted to 2D and printed out.   From there either it's done with EVA foam or the cardstock-resin-fibreglass.  Time to get stuck in and read a ton of build threads and then come at us with your questions, there's a wealth of info already there to read [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

I'm Marcus, 31 and currently call Tulsa, OK home.  

While I was not originally into dressing up, my time as a steampunk, and member of the Red Fork Empire has greatly changed that, and I have a large collection of gear now, and currently working on my Steam Marine Armory(a costume with several different variants), and a Death Company Mando costume.  

I am also downsizing my armies.  Between my wife and I, we have just about one for every faction, and as life has changed, things are are changing with them, but the Blood Angels stay, after all, we have matching Angel tattoos.

Hello, My name is Profe MacKnight.

I'm 21 years old. Live in the Contry that made Piratcy [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Army: Don't have one yet, will get one in the Future, Will either be ''Dark Angels'' or ''Night Lord'' / ''Thousand Sons'' PRE-Heresy colors.

Works: Made a Space Marine armor in Metal and Aluminium a while back, was my 3rd term school project, didnt get time to finnish it before I finnished school. Will make a new and better one later in life. Need to get my hands on some Hydrolics and sensors so I can finnish a Exoskeleton. (This shit cost GAY...)

How I got Into Warhammer 40k: Well, I've always been into PC games, mostly RTS. I hit on Dawn of War Dark Crusade, and after a few months, I thought; ''whats this universe's stroy..?'' (Was with Halo before this).
I locked it up, and saw there was shitload of books, novels and other things for this.
Now, I got almost every book from warhammer 40k, several limited editions, every Horus Heresy released + 2 and other things. (even got a metal Aquilla on my wall.)

So Im now a walking WH40K wikipedia who has classdied info......  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/rolleyes.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='rolleyes.gif' />

Hey, all, my name is Cole, from Edmonton, Canada.. I was hungover as balls one day a few months back, when I decided I wanted to make a life-size space marine costume. After a few hours trolling around the internet, I came across this place! Quite impressed with the work I've seen on here, and look forward to adding some of my own.

I have a work in progress, but don't plan on making a thread for it until I finish with the fibreglassing. I tried a different technique that I'm hoping will save myself (and others) a fuckton of time.

I'm a helicopter mechanic with the air force, enjoy reading, cheap beer, and listening to punk & metal (Bolt Thrower got me into W40k). I've always had pretty sweet halloween costumes, so jumping into this was just a natural progression. Here's a pic of a Mad Max costume I made a couple years back:

Looking to start my build for my custom space marine chapter master suit. Him and his chapter are not a fan of the Gods of Chaos nor the God of the Imperium (translated to: Control)

I used pepakura craft in the past for minor things but I have always desired to do cosplay that was not anime. I always had a bad taste in my mouth for cosplay for the longest time due to weeblo friends irl.

That aside. I will try to get a mock up as soon as possible not 100% sure how I will do it but I think I will start with the helmet and shoulders bare and sculpt onto them from there.

Derp.. that's all I can think of atm.

I used to pley a lot ot table top games with my brother, mostly GW games but also games like Car Wars as well.

I've been interested in costuming since 2005 when I found about about hte 501st, and am now looking at creating a Space Marine.  I've a couple of friends who are interested too, so it might be a build of several sets of armour in the end.

Going back to my earleir days of gaming, I suppose the Mk 6 armour is where my  interest is, so I am going to have a go at the Pepakura beaky for starters, to see how practical it is, and then go from there.

I'm going to be at D*Con apeing about, so will keep a look out for you guys when I am there.

TTFN!

HI all,

First time in the forums and registered in the Crusade.  I (Brad) have been reading WH for several years and did my first costume (Commissar) last year at Dragon Con.  That is where I bumped into you.  With DCon rapidly approaching, I thought I would connect.

My wife (Carol) also likes WH costumes and we will share several pictures after this post once I figure out how to do that.  One will be of our costumes last year and two are our "dry runs" for this year's DCon.  We'll be using both sets this year.

Looking forward to meeting everyone on Friday.

Warhammer 40k was always a huge part of my life, I spend most of my young years in my local store, was even considered as some kind of living inventory. I started with the release of the 3rd Edition, meaning I am more then half of my life in the hobby by now.
LARP came some years later and I always wondered, how could 40k-Larp be, but never had the chance to try anything in that direction, until a small Con and I had the chance to build something not just for me.
But I wanted something special, after seeing the ElysianTrooper and all his awesome stuff, I was tired of all the Imperial stuff and so the idea of the Blood Pact was born, I just wanted to do something special and different.

I am currently working on heavier armor and new Grotesques, one with rebreather, the other with moveable jaws.

If there are any question, just ask and I try to answer them as good as possible,

Name: Baz
Aliases: I have had far too many to list few of which I like so, please, call me Baz..
Location: Naggaroth (Canada)... I dwell also in the Dark City
Age: Ancient, but if you must have some Earthly reference we shall say 45.
Other Forums: Warseer, Paper Modelers and Zealot thus far
Armies: (40K) Primarily Dark Eldar but also have Space Marines, Eldar, Sisters, Orks and Tau as well as a small squad of Imperial Guard Kasrkin Stormtroopers with a single Leman Russ that has yet to make it through the assembly lines of the Manufactorum.
(WFB) Dark Elves, Wood Elves, Empire, Orks, Vampire Counts, Tomb Kings, Dwarfs, Skaven, Beastmen, a few High Elves and an Ogre (yes just one)
Costumes: Klingon lu' Kortagh tiQwoq, Kakashi Sensei but nothing from 40K yet, but I have plans and have been working on a couple for my wife and me for a while now.
Interests: Gaming (miniatures and RPG's), Reading, Art, Costuming, Martial Arts, Ice Hockey, Body Building but not in that order per se.

I am an avid gamer, have been all of my life. I have also always loved to dress up in costume (even when it wasn't Halloween) and in fact my usual fashion style is as piratey as possible. It seemed only a matter of time before the two would come together. I began cosplaying in earnest though back in the mid 90's when  joined the Klingon Assault Group (KAG) Kanada. Since then I have cosplayed at the Anime North Conventions with my wife a few times as well, most recently playing Kakashi Sensei with Hyuga Hinata (my wife). I do have pics of that somewhere but have had computer issues of late and need to dig up the files.
I found a love for GW games in the late 90's and even worked for GW for a short stint in the official retail stores here. I had long planned to cosplay something from one of the game systems even before they introduced it as an official part of Games Day (how I miss having  Games Day in Canada  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' />  ). I had been and still am working on a Sisters of Battle costume for my wife and both a Space Marine and Dark Eldar costume for myself. In recent years I have taken to paper model building and creation which is what brought me here while searching out pepekura files or other templates for any and all things 40K (since models are more expensive than paper and I had found pepekura files for Space Marine helmets). So here I am and I hope to learn and grow as a costumer and paper modeler here, perhaps even make a friend or two... or gather some souls to consume when I return to Commorragh! Muahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa......

Found the crusade through several sources, primarily mention on Bolter and Chainsword.  A lot of ideas and thoughts, here.  Much food for thought, on how to do things.  Beginning to realize I have quite the challenge ahead of me, in creating and/or costumizing my first suit of Astartes Power Armour.  But I would like too bring, Battle Brother Adamo to life in one shape or another.  The biggest challenge I am finding in at the moment is what chapter to try first.  Three come to mind for various reasons.  Ultramarines (likely the most iconic of the Chapters), Blood Angels ( the codex I currently play for the most part), or go with the pattern I have been working for my own chapter, The Angels of Deliverance.

Welcome to the boards.  If you are doing pep, make sure you use cardstock, and not regular paper.  Other than that be sure to have a read through some of the threads on this board (if you haven't already).  There are some very helpful builds.

wierd. Uninstall, reinstall?

It is usually pretty stable. You are going to want to make an investment in the designer level application because that will let you save your work in between sessions.

And budget at least 15% for screw-ups while pepping, whether that is for paper or whatever. We can talk more when you have your pepping done about doing a little project management so you can track how far along you are.

Hello.  A lot of Google searching for Foam and Pep Space Marines has led me here and reading the boards I have found a lot of inspiration and help to get started.  I keep telling myself I should start a thread as a means to keep myself moving and motivated.   But my progress so far has ground to a halt and I can't decide whether to paint minis or work on the armor so I end up doing neither.  But I'm officially adding myself to the ranks of the Crusade, so that's a start.

Name: Bryan
40k Armies: Dark Angels, Kabal of the Slashed Eye Dark Eldar, Sucko Craftworld Eldar (a custom color scheme), Order of the Bloody Rose Sisters of Battle (refusing to come out until they get a full proper codex again), Bad Moon Orks, Tyranids and in progress Death Guard.
Age: 42
Costumes: None yet

So I have started a Marine armor and I'm definitely leaning towards tailoring it to be Pre-Heresy Death Guard.  But at the moment the armor is a test boot I made with extra foam I had available.  Nothing to show but while the shoe wasn't made very well I felt good enough doing it that I'm moving ahead with my concept.  If or when I get to a point where I am satisfied with what I have going, I'll start a thread to share.

Hello all! I've always kinda dreamed of having my own 40K costume and I haphazardly stumbled across this board so I decided to join. I've been reading through a lot of posts and I've become incredibly inspired.

I'm incredibly torn. Due to the time and cost involved, I don't know if I should go big or play it safe. I'm thinking of either making either...

An Assault Space Marine. The one on the lower left. (I like the beaky helmet! I'd probably change the chapter, though)
(http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m1252489_99120101034_SMAssaultSqdmain_873x627.jpg)

OR...

A Chaos Space Marine Terminator Lord
(http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m1252604_99120102020_CSMTermlord2main_873x627.jpg)

Something just screams innately evil (and still innately cool) about this costume idea. I could be the antithesis of Colin! [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/14623/129/emo/01459939e94f5adb33facf235d2e7c00.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='01459939e94f5adb33facf235d2e7c00.gif' />

I figure both would be workable. The Assault Marine could be based off the Mk VII Armor or the Chaos Terminator Lord could be a modified Grey Knight Terminator armor. I've found a few templates that I could pick and choose to fit the costumes accordingly. TOO MANY DECISIONS!  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' />

Anyway, I'm just starting out so I'm sure things may change, but I really like the board and all the helpful hints it's given thus far. I hope to get to know you guys more in the future and I REALLY hope to start working on a suit soon!

Hi everyone,
I've been trolling around this forum on & off for a while now.
Amazing work done on the designs & costumes.

I wonder though could somebody here help me out.
I'm looking for a 3D image of both the Emperor's Aquila & the Dark Angels insignia.
I'm worse than useless at 3D modelling & I'm trying to get a piece priced for 3D printing.
So any help would be appreciated.
Title: Hello
Post by: Lamia on January 21, 2013, 01:39:00 PM
You may find it easier to assemble from parts - Pep files are often fiddly, and it may save you time to make it from foam.
Title: Hello
Post by: wookieegunner on January 21, 2013, 02:14:00 PM
I agree with Lamia.  You would be better off cutting the pieces out of foam to get the thickness.  To get one printed, you not only need the image, you need it curved for what you are putting it on.
Title: Hello
Post by: Rogue Fett on January 22, 2013, 09:53:00 PM
Thanks for the replies.
I'm not going to be building a costume (as of yet).
In the interim, I want to make a few small 'models'.
I was thinking of the the aquila & Dark Angels insignia along with maybe a bolter & a helmet, but all on a smaller scale.
I have a Boba Fett helmet, that at it's largest area would cover my hand. I wanted a similar sized helmet of a Space Marine.

On a more serious note, if you don't mind it being flat, Shapeways can take a black and white picture and create a 3D version.  If you plan on printing it yourself, they also have a way you can set the item so you can download the STL file.

Hi Everyone!
I've been browsing the forums for a long time as a guest and (as you've probably heard before) everyone has some amazing talent!  I figured it was time to stop lurking and start engaging with people.

Now, I'd like to see if anyone has attempted or heard of someones attempts as to putting together a Dreadnought (any variation of Standard, Ironclad, Venerable) together before.  I'd just like to see peoples ideas on how to attempt this and if I have the time I'd like to attempt this project (ambitious I know!).

Well thanks for reading and I can't wait to see what ideas everyone comes up with

I saw other people post pictures of their other costumes so here's one of my Fett from a parade last year:

Post by: Cole45 on February 06, 2013, 04:56:00 AM
The Lexicanum is definitely a good source, but personally, I like the Warhammer 40k Wiki (http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Warhammer_40k_Wiki) better. I find it usually has a bit of a narrative to it, which helps for long periods of fact digesting, hah.

For example: "What emerged from the Warp when the Death Guard fleet broke out into Realspace bore little resemblance to that which had entered. The ivory armour and jade heraldry of the once-proud Imperial champions was no more, in its stead was a sickly pall of greenish hue. Bloated and corpulence replaced the sleek proud form of the Death Guard Astartes as every warrior was now pock-marked with boils, scabs and putrescent sores. Maggots writhed in their unhealing wounds and the air about them was clouded with swarming bloated black flies. They bore the foul stink of corruption. Even their weapons and war machines had been mutated and were now powered by the sickly sorcery of the Plague God, glowing with lambent green energy and oozing gangrenous pus. The Death Guard were now walking pestilence carriers; they had become the Plague Marines." Fun stuff.

Oh, and welcome!

Thanks everyone for the welcomes and the background links.  I still haven't decided if I'm going to go for a "normal" build or an exaggerated one (scaled up with stilts) but it'll either be Blood Angels or Ultramarines I'm going for.

Definitely want to include purity seals (took some creative googling to find out what they're called) and other realism bits but I'm not sure of the all the intricacies of the armor yet and just don't want to do a disservice by going non-canon.  (I've seen this enough with the 501st) haha.  I've got a lot of research to do but I plan to start construction sooner rather than later.

Hi,
just saying hello to the group here [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

stumbled over the site out of curiosity into how much work it would be making replica armour/weapons for space marines.

I play the video game on xbox and have been into the hobby off and on since it began (yes a proper long fang here)

amazed at what people are able to do here, and have a wealth of questions such as what type of paper/card is used? also is there a stronger way to construct items?

if anyone is thinking of doing either a space marine chaplain or legion of damned i saw this on ebay and thought it would work well.

Welcome to the forum.

110 lb cardstock is the paper of choice, as it holds up well to rondo, fibreglass, and smoothcast. Fibreglass is pretty damned strong, and the smoothcast method has held up well for me. Some people fibreglass & bondo their pieces, then cast them from a mold; that'd probably be the sturdiest pieces, I'd imagine.

Post by: IGNATIUSmaden on April 04, 2013, 12:47:00 PM
Hi to everybody on Obscurus crusade,

I'm new to the world of costume building and I'm looking for any hints people can suggest in my first build.

At the moment I've collected an assortment of cardboard and have some foam sleeping mats. I've been researching ideas for a while now and have seen some very good build just using sleeping mats and cardboard.

soon to be adding other various materials.


I'm in the process of building my sub frame for the pauldrons but any templates for space marine astartes armour would be appreciated just to give a better knowledge on the matter.

Hoping to bring this build out for the manchester MCM expo in june.

Looking for templates? Then there's a ton of them at the top of the General Costuming section.  Chwbcc's Pep Collection and  Ral Partha's Unfolded Pep Files Collection. Those should keep you occupied for a few months. You'll need to download Pepakura viewer to see them and print them out. This is what a lot of people use for templates, otherwise it's a case of scratch building.
Good hunting  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />

Title: First time builder!
Post by: Bagthera on May 29, 2013, 08:47:00 PM
So... I finaly decided to make a post here, after lurking for quite some time.

Ive been looking for some kind of project for quite some time, and had my mind set on a stormtrooper outfit, but as I needed a vacuform for that to work out, I kinda had to put that on stand by, as Im currently living in an appartment. So I thought to myself, what else can I make?

So I searched the web far and wide and eventualy ended up here, on your fine site!

And I was just blown away by the pure awesomeness of the builds I see here!

Thats when I made up my mind... Im going spacemarine!

I looked around quite alot, had a few talks with my brother in law and talked him into building one with me!

Now we just had to figure out how they should look...

And after quite a few talks we found an awesome picture of an ultramarine honorguard.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img541/275/honorguard.jpg)
 I didnt really have anyone particular in mind, Im thinking it will be a mix and match, though Ive proberly drawn the most inspiration from the banner bearer. Second from the left.

I startet, proberly like most of you, from the bottom.

(http://imageshack.us/a/img29/5426/imag0415me.jpg)

And slowly worked my way up

(http://imageshack.us/a/img545/459/imag0417wm.jpg)

(http://imageshack.us/a/img855/4356/imag0418s.jpg)
Milk is for size comparison =)

(http://imageshack.us/a/img195/3740/imag0421w.jpg)
Building more of the legs, testing out the potential height of my stilts

(http://imageshack.us/a/img541/7017/imag0443d.jpg)
Building the stilts... God my wife loves me!

First test of the stilts...
(http://imageshack.us/a/img109/4276/imag0444ld.jpg)

First test with chest, diaper, thighs.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img20/2005/imag0467zg.jpg)

Next up... With lower legs =)
(http://imageshack.us/a/img560/199/imag0469qd.jpg)

Yeah... The stilts are too tall! But they need to me remade anyway into something a bit more stable.

And now we come to the helmets!
At first I made a simple normal helmet in pepakura
(http://imageshack.us/a/img560/8000/imag0403i.jpg)

Dosnt look bad, but isnt really what I wanted!
Title: First time builder!
Post by: Bagthera on May 29, 2013, 08:48:00 PM
Next up is the winged bastard!
(http://imageshack.us/a/img818/9759/imag0452f.jpg)

It looks AWESOME! But I just have no clue how to turn it into a working helmet without spending quite a bit of cash on it. Ordering something to slush cast it with. Might do that still, depending on finances.

So I turned to foam once again...
(http://imageshack.us/a/img812/9162/imag0470q.jpg)
I love the look, and I do belive I can do alot with it, making it stand out. My only problem is the eye holes... I was following the pep files, and just made the holes like the files said, but now I have a hard time putting in the rest of the foam, that will make the holes smaller.
The pep file is the Asterion Moloc Helm - Foamie Unfold, in Chwbcc's Pep Collection, Custom made warhammer files post.

As you can see, the holes are quite big.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img801/563/imag0466e.jpg)

Well, thats where I am now... Next up is the shoulders and loads and loads of rigging, reinforceing and more rigging =)

Title: First time builder!
Post by: chwbcc on May 29, 2013, 09:11:00 PM
DUDE THIS IS AWESOME!  That Asterion helm is awesome!  I have built this myself and you have to put the eye browns on it to reduce the eye area but you can easily do that with some scraps and then sand them into place with a dremel

If you come up with a good Foamie way to do that Aquila helm I would love to see it.  I have slushed cast one myself and it is a BRICK! LOL

Good work so far, keep it up!

Yeah Daeouse, thats something im aware of :-( But Im going to wait until the shoulders are attatched before I make the final call and rebuild the helm. I hope they will make the helm seem smaller hehe... We will see soonish! Mounting the shoulders is my next project :-)

Hi everyone, I'm Wamthump a lurker and admirer of the craftsmanship and skill demonstrated on this site. I have a simple problem that I need a bit of assistance with. I cannot follow the links provided from wintershade and if i simply try to download them they cannot be opened with my pepakura program. Would anyone be willing to  send me the files so i can get started on my own build. I need the foam modified pep files from wintershade.

Hi everyone my name is Josh and I'm from WV and I'm a huge 40k fan. I've done a bit of costuming before and I've been tossing around the idea of building a 40K costume and after seeing the amazing terminator armor that Imperial Gothic built I'm considering doing a terminator myself. Since this will be my first build as far as space marines go I'm open to suggestions on which route to take when building the armor.
This seems like a really cool costuming group and I look forward to talking to you all.

Thank you for the nice words [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /> I'm sure you'll do fine - if you need help don't hesitate to ask [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

I might advice you to try power armour for starters - it gives you experience and it's a bit more user friendly [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

You're welcome  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />. I've also considered starting with power armor to give me more experience before I go big into terminator armor. I did some research and I might tr the pepakura route for power armor, but I would also like to use boot lifts or small stilts to make me look the part.

Another question. After the pep is all assembled and ready for resin. for the inside is it best to use fiberglass cloth and resin or just layers of resin/rondo/bondo? I only ask because I'm looking for maximum rigidity.
Title: Newcomer here
Post by: chwbcc on June 15, 2013, 10:34:00 PM
It really depends on what your final usage is.  If you are looking for something to be durable enough to say do paint ball.  Nothing is strong enough to withstand that stress at a hobby level.  These methods are purely for dress up and for show.

If you are looking for a good display piece I would suggest, mixing 1:1 part resin and Bondo and slushing it inside the helm.  It will become very sturdy for a display piece but it will shatter if you drop it.  But you could spray in some adhesive and lay down some fiberglass mat then slush cast it and that will help make it a bit more shatter proof.  But it will be heavy.

You could also just use fiberglass mat and resin on the inside but make sure you get all the cracks and crevasses good cause that stuff is unforgiving.

I prefer the first method but would recommend going to the foam route.  Much lighter and far more durable in the long run.

I used this (cloth):

(http://www.horracing.com/images/fiberglass.JPG)

Just that and resin on the inside made my pep rigid and still light.  It's bondo that makes things heavy.

Name: Carolus

Handles: KitchenCommissar

Other Boards: Reddit... I guess?

Age: 19

Army: An embarrassment of an attempt to a DKoK army, as of writing moment, only on a nice little Munitorium piece of paper, awaiting founding (read: funding).

Costumes: Some in a half built/planned state, kind of low on money, but trying to scrape up for SOMETHING, I'll keep you updated.

Outside Interests: Heavy Metal, composing, cooking, homebrewing, collecting odd trinkets that my lovely girlfriend constantly questions the purpose of, getting plastered with my equally sanity-in-state-of-questioning friends and last of all: showing up to conventions and just being generally out of place among all of the sweet little anime cosplayers...

Also a huge fan of reading, right now I'm burried in the final-as-of-now Gaunt's Ghosts omnibus, grieving the fact that the next omnibus isn't due until at least next year, and debating wether I should buy the next two books in separate volumes or just aquire the Eisenhorn and Ravenor books instead...

I do usually play a lot of video/PC games, but that vein has been found wanting lately, probably due to my... Unoccupied state...

And as a final note: I really do love cigars... Cigars and cosplaying...

Been lurking for months but would really like to get something started. I purchased a number of supplies for pepakura, but I'm heavily intimidated by the hardening process.

Website: none really

I started playing a table top miniature game that my buddies in high school picked up. The game had a cool hard cover book that was thick and had lots of awesome sci-fi stuff in it. There was an incredible battle scene on the front, a bunch of tough looking guys in blue armor with red gloves shooting some awesome looking guns and ripping the heads off of what were obviously orks. I was addicted from that day on. That was 1988.

I started Eldar then, I still play them now. Tough to do with a wife, 2 toddlers and a full time job, but I'm still an addict.

I used to be in the 501st. Me and a buddy started the Everglades Squad down in the Florida Garrison. I still have my TK armor though, even though I don't hang with any other stormtroopers anymore.

What I'd like to do is get back into costuming. Since I'm an Eldar player through and through I'd like to make me some Eldar costumes. Only problem is how to start.

We used ABS for the star wars stormtrooper costumes but that was 10 years ago. I hope someone here can point me in the right direction on current techniques.
I have an idea of how to add to and modify a nerf Vortex pisto that shoots discs to look like a shuriken pistol but not sure the right material to use... foam? wood? some kind of plastic or plastic card?

Don't know, but I'm excited to try.

Glad to meet you all and will talk soon.

Howdy people.
i was pointed to this forum many moons ago by Shiney when we met at comic-con last year.

After finishing up another costume and nearly finishing a 2nd i figured it was time to start posting here and make myself known.

I have the intention of building stock armour out of plastic at the moment. no real detail per say, i want to get the armour formed and wearable, then i will work out chapter and damage etc etc.
While im saving the needed coins to build a vac forming table (stupid wedding getting in the stupid way [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' /> ) ive been printing the pep files and thus far have a boot, shin and knee cap.

I aim to build one section at a time before progressing and work through them in stages. Tomorrow i will begin on the thigh and once i have the pep files for the whole leg section will begin the fiber glassing and bogging etc etc.

I have read through a bunch of builds on this forums and an both in awe and incredibly inspired to progress with this. Its going to be hard to be slow and steady to hopefully get the results.

I look forward to talking to you all a bunch and posting up my progress in a build thread soon!

thanks,

Mr Giant.

If I might make a suggestion, take a look at what Kol did over int eh chaos section. He resined his card stock and covered it with foam. The foam smoothed the edges and would certainly be lighter than using auto body filler. And it is faster. And less toxic. And, and and... just sayin'...  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' />

Hi Folks

I'm a Forty something father of Two, ex Royal Signals & have been working for B.T for 13 years now. I get to stare at screens... living the dream I think some call it.

I live in Medway Towns (Kent) U.K

I've been costuming in some capacity from LARP to Cosplay, from the crazy days of running around in caves & woods dressed as an Orc to strutting my stuff as a Mandalorian with the 501st.

I've been putting off this build for a year or Two as I figured it would cost me my marriage, job, sanity.
But the Iron father prevailed so here we are...


I'm a sucker for a Traitor Legion & Hazard markings so you can guess the Legion.
 Very early stages & currently working on the Bolter & Lid. I'll be using Plastazote/Fibreglass route as I just don't on with Pepakura.

Hope to see some of you @ London MCM Expo next month.

Sometimes the internet is awesome. Sometimes it's not & you find fan art of a female cron & female tau felating a multi-meta (seriously internet, WTF!!) but sometimes, it's awesome. Like when you've been working on a 40k cosplay costume & posting pics on other various sites thinking to yourself, 'Jee wouldn't it be great if they had a site or a forum for all this so I could stop scouring google image?'
Thank you internet. And Obscurus Crusade  :)
And now that I have gotten the obligatory comical remark ice-breaker out of the way,

Howdy Obscurus!
My name is Chris, I go by SickSick6 or just 666 if I'm feelin lazy. Been playing 40k for about 4 years now, almost exclusively Death Guard. I lost count on points on my army. I know it's over 12,000 (shutup Vegeta *smack!*)
I find time to play whenever I can & in the mean time pretend to care about customer's computer woes while painting mini's at work. I recently went to the local Comic Con here in Tampa & got bit by the cosplay bug once again. I'm currently about 75% on the form build of a Typhus costume. I started a thread over at dakkadakka & here is the link if you wanna check it out:

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/554621.page

but, this is an introduction thread afterall so not to get into my project & life story just yet, I'll start a thread on that when I get home from work & have more access to pics.

Hey OC!

I've been a lurker for quite some time, being a huge 40k fan for most of my life. Played tabletop for a bit and fell in love with the games (Commissar Holt was my mancrush, yes).
So now I'm thinking bigger. 7' bigger, as a matter of fact. My hope is to build myself a Space Marine, following some pretty impressive builds I've seen here on the boards. However, I won't be able to start this project for quite some time, likely almost a year. Currently a US Marine, looking to upgrade  ;D

I have zero costuming experience, though I've always wanted to try it out. Along with that comes having no experience in making a costume of this caliber. But I have a couple of people who have expressed interest in helping me, and from what I've seen from this board I know most of you will be more than happy to help a poor sod like me out!
Literally brand spanking new to this whole experience, but we'll see what I can pick up before this thing kicks off!

Costumes: Inquisitor (I have a banner I made in Ye Olden Dayes ov Yore, anyway.), and wantwantwantWANT to do a 'Marine or IG costume.
Outside Interests: Reading, internet, WWII reenacting (And you thought GW-based hobbies were expensive... *psh*), nerding out over nearly anything historical, listening to music, gaming.


MAGNIFICENT BACK STORY: I think the first time I got bitten by the GW bug was when I was about 4, and it was when 40k was in relative infancy. We were at the house of a family friend and her siblings and when I was just hanging around, walking and nosing about, I noticed a box with some horned dudes with guns, I looked inside and I beheld what I saw, her (the family friend's) brother, Rob, came and told me what it was, or tried to, anyway. Years passed after that (fateful) day, and then I went into a hobby shop, and saw a guy painting an Ultrasmurf army, to this day I still remember it was that chapter.
MOAR years passed, and I begun the larval stages of internet use, then I discovered Games Workshop, and then Lexicanum, then B&C, Then was gifted a Dan Abnett novel, and then read a bunch of BL books..... Games Workshop. You have broken me. (laughs)
Anyhow, I came across Rose and Boltshot on facebook by way of DeviantArt, saw what they had to say/show, stalked like anyone else, saw the link to here, creeped around, and made my account with nary a second thought!
I've wanted to make armor ever since I got the Space Wolves Battleforce. I feel it might be time to learn the basics.


TL;DR, I know, but for those who slogged through my ramblings: (in attachments if pic doesn't show, have not used a forum in a while plus it's 3:20AM here.)

I am pretty new to the warhammer 40k universe. I actually got introduced to it by the video game my best friend was playing and I was like "What the hell are those things!!?? Total badass lol. I have been working on special effects makeup for about a year now and was interested in doing some fabrication work for my portfolio. My buddy told me one day "We should do some Space Marine Suits like these!" This is when he showed my Henrik's Blood Angel and I was blown away. Since then I have been obsessed. I am atm collecting all necessary tools and space needed for making 3 of my of SM suits for this coming Boston Comic Con. I will be making Space Wolves ( at first was looking into Grey Knights... but the wolves took my heart lol) I'm sure you will be seeing me soon asking a bunch of you fine artist questions and posting pics of my work. Oh and here is a recent piece I did. It is Bane's Mask from The Dark Knight Rises film.

Hi! My name is Alice and I'm from Spain. I have known the site for a while but hadn't decided to join until now. I do cosplay and play Warhammer 40k (but I prefer to paint armies and read the books). The first conversation I ever had with my boyfriend (sorry guys) was about warhammer, he is a Blood Angel player. One of the cosplays I'm more proud of is my Farseer cosplay, I did it a couple of years ago and it is still one of my favourites (which is surprising as it was one of my first big cosplay projects). I wore it at Games Day UK 2012 and a couple more times in several conventions in Spain. I'm glad to answer any questions or give advice about cosplay if you may need it  ;D

Thanks Shadowwolf! I know about the spear, I was trying to go for transparency and used acetate but the day of the photoshoot was very windy and it kept bending. Inside buildings it was alright tho. (And my idea was to bring a sword but didn't have time to finish it)
I really want to do Ahriman, I don't think it will happen soon but it is just too awesome not to try, may need to do a ladies version tho because I'm just too short...no way I pass as a space marine lol.

Age: 42
Army: none
Costumes: No Warhammer....yet (that's why I'm here!) but a lot of other costumes
Outside Interests: Costuming and prop making of all kinds from historical to movie replicas
Website: no website

I'm an active member of the 501st Legion coming up on 10 years.  I'm a staff member at the Replica Prop Forum working on the "news" feature called Pulse.  I have a bit of a costuming disease and make on average between 10 and 20 ish costumes a year for myself and others.  My main skill has always been sewing but over the years I've learned a lot about making armor, working with leather, painting, weathering, wig making/styling etc.  Basically if I find a costume I like, I try to teach myself what I need to know in order to make it come to life.   

I fell in love with the Sisters of Battle the very first time I saw a build on the RPF years ago.  I now feel that I'm at a skill level that I can try and tackle one myself.  A friend of mine is going to be building one at the same time so we're in the process of learning as much as we can about the character and the build.  My plan is to use thermoplastics for the most part (ie:  Worbla and Wonderflex).  I've been playing with both for awhile and I think I have the basic skills to get started and then build on getting better at it.  Looking forward to learning from all of those who blazed the trail ahead of me!

After looking at some of the fantastic SOB builds here, I remembered where my love for this gear started!

A couple of years ago for DragonCon I did The Magdalena.  I did the soft parts, and a friend of mine did the armor for me.

(https://scontent-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/s720x720/317420_10150369522030586_414894332_n.jpg)

A lot of people stopped me and were calling me a Sister of Battle and I had NO clue what that was.  So when I got home I looked it up.  Then I realized why they thought it and was totally in love with the gear!
Title: Re: Introductions
Post by: Aliceincosplayland on January 16, 2014, 04:52:46 PM
The Magdalena is so awesome! She is one of my favourite Top Cow characters. Congrats, you did it great. And yes, now that you say it she may look a bit like a sister of battle. Good luck with your sister of battle, hope to see progress soon :)

Greetings. My name is Steven I'm 38 and most on the prop forums know me as Amish /Hitman or Trooper. I have been a long time prop collector and small builder. I have never played Warhammer but have always loved the armor and look of the costumes. I hope to build my first set this year and will first do a pep to foam build. That will be a new experience too. Then once I get a feel for things I will go the buck/vacuum form route. I started following Thorssoli's builds on the RPF like 4 years ago and the guy builds quality so I look to his as the standard.

I am coming to realize that Warhammer has a deep history and a myriad of characters. I am not so much for the backstory but more the look. besides the Wiki where is the best place for visual resource? Thanks and I look forward to you guys and gals answering my dumb questions.

Welcome all.

Amish Trooper, when you say wiki, do you mean http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Main_Page or http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Warhammer_40k_Wiki ?  They both have good and bad parts.  If you haven't been there yet, look up Black Library's website.  They are the fiction arm of Games Workshop and have a lot of cover art up.  Another good resource for general look is http://natfka.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Pics%20of%20the%20Week .  If you can narrow down what you are looking for, we can help better.

Hello everyone!

Dave G. here. Currently residing in Lafayette, Louisiana.

I have to admit I've never played Warhammer 40K before. I know, heresy.
I've been costuming for several years now and after seeing Stygian's build log and vids on Youtube I realized that you armored bada$$es were out there. I started reading up on the history and lore of W40K and the Chapters. I think I have a potential build for either Raven Guard or Death Company!

My build may take a little longer than most of you though. I'm visually impaired so projects tend to take longer to get absolutely correct. Sucks but I still fight on because costuming is my passion. I've been attending Dragoncon in Atlanta every year since 2012 with my brother. We always try to do only costumes that appeal to our personalities. That's why I found my way here.

I already have several costumes. I am a Browncoat of the 76th Independant Battalion, a First Contact Era Lt. JG aligned with the USS Corsair out of Baton Rouge, I have an expanding Steampunk military persona and my latest has been a Colonial Marine Rifleman complete with Pulse Rifle, grenades, etc..

My brother has a Xeno suit that he's had made that looks too real so we'll be going as a group. I've been wanting to go as a Colonial Marine since I first saw the Cameron film in the theater as a kid.

I'm really looking forward to adding an epic Space Marine to my arsenal! I've already started bugging some of you fine folks for details and what not and I'm afraid I will only continue to as my build progresses.

I look forward to hearing from you and having a great new group of Battle Brothers to serve with!

Cheers!
Dave G.

Howdy Folks.
Bit of intro here:
Been collecting, painting and converting GW miniatures since they were known as Citadel.
As well as small stuff, i also do the big stuff, manily Star Wars related, as the films are a mine of creative choices:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v63/Mangamax/SDC137962_zps286e45b4.jpg)

And i thought i'd leave it at that. But i've been watching Rich Yates' stirling work on his Space Marine and i'm starting to feel the urge to do something...
If i do manage to reign it in and not make anything that big, this here site is truly excellent and its fascinating seeing characters i know well in white form brought to life.

Greetings from Texas!

my name is Clint, and i am a costumaholic...   

I have never actually played Warhammer 40k, but i have loved the armor figures since i was a kid.  After stumbling over a few AMAZING builds of this epic armor when i was looking into getting into making foam armor, i realized i had to make one. 

I've been into costuming for a few years now and done a bunch of misc costumes, Stormtroopers, vader, Chewbacca, Gambit, Medieval Loki, and others.  Here is a shot of my Loki ;)

(http://i.imgur.com/C22jwKs.jpg)


I will do a bit more research to figure out which crew to join, but i think i'm leaning towards crimson fist.  We will see..  But either way, the armor path has started, and i hope very much to be able to create a piece of art half as amazing as some of you guys.  Thanks ahead of time if for no other help then allowing me to look at your armor.  More would of course be appreciated, lol.

I hope to jump in and start making this soon, but as i currently work at least 64 hrs a week, i really only have a few hours during the week, and weekends to work on projects. 

Well, i just wanted to introduce myself to everyone and say thank you for letting me join the community!

Best,
Clint

Hi all,

I'm Simon (or Si for short), aged 41 and from Nottingham in the UK.

I got involved in costuming when I joined the UK Garrison of the 501st Legion just over a year ago.

This is me. :)
(http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/u574/SIMpixels/SIMtrooper/SIMtrooper_LW_03_zpsdf9aa847.jpg)

I've been a fan of Space Marines since I started painting Warhammer figures back in 1985 (when I was 13). Getting involved with the UKG and seeing lots of impressive costumes being made has spurred me on to do one of these.

The massive amount of help & inspiration on this forum has been influential on how I'm approaching my costume build, I'll be staring a WIP thread soon so keep an eye out.

Hopefully see some of you at an event soon.

Si.

Hello all.

I`ve been lurking here for some time  now, going through your fantastic builds, so I thought I`d better register & introduce myself.

My name is Jeff & I live in Swindon the UK. I`m not exactly new to costuming as I am a member of a small group called Charity Sci-Fi, based & working in the West Country where we collect & raise money for good causes. In the group we have characters from Star Wars, Dr Who & Ghostbusters to name a few.

While I`m not a gamer, my two sons were into 40k & LOTR  (eldest & youngest respectively), though I did collect & paint 40k Orks for a while & make small dioramas for the youngest`s LOTR stuff.

Not sure I should admit this  :-[ but I know nothing of the history/background/chapters etc of Space Marines, I just know I want one ! Being somewhat vertically challenged (5` 6"), I decided I wanted a costume that would be taller than our Darth Vader & Chewbacca so thought a SM would be the way to go lol.

From the threads I`ve read so far, you all seem like a really friendly bunch, giving help & advice at the drop of a hat with not a negative comment anywhere, I like that a lot  :) so here`s hoping I have a great time here.

Thanks for reading.

Jeff.

PS. The pic below is my current "costume" !!

Costumes: Lord of the rings gondorian soldier, bsg duty blues, viper pilot flightsuit. (both new series)
Outside Interests: Reading, art, fitness, games, cooking, electronics tinkering, window shopping on the intertoobs (mostly shineys i can't possibly have ^^)
Website: nil


So, hello to all on here! I have browsed these forums as well as many others, and have finally made the transition from lurker to member.

As stated above, my name is Matthew, and have only recently become a huge fan of the 40k series and universe as a whole. It started when I was away for work, and the local big w had the first 12 books of the horus heresy so I thought "this looks cool" and bought them. That was pretty much it for me. I had played the dawn of war games during my later years of high school, but never really became engaged until that book series. As a result, my shelf has now become converted to the ecclesiarchy/imperial truth :P

Although I immensely enjoy the fluff, and background that black library does, I am afraid I don't have the skill required to paint up an army of models. So I am more than happy to just enjoy that aspect of the universe through viewing others great work. However, I am sorely tempted by the forgeworld primarch statues...

As stated above, I was involved with costuming for a long, loong time and built up a huge collection from many different genres. Most of them are gone now, but I kept the above as they are rare, and special to me. And while work dragged me away from the hobby for a while, my interests have been attracted back again by the thought of putting together an Imperial Fist, Dark Angel or Cadian Guard, so here I am! :)

I have listed that I am in Brisbane, Australia area, but I am a little way out of Brisbane proper, so figured it easier to list there. I would love to hear from any Brisbane people on here, or just Aussies in general! I'm not sure how much more my wife can hold out listening to her overgrown man child frothing at the mouth about how cool this scene from invasion of Calth was, poor thing! Having some like minded people to chat with would be great!

I have msn and skype, but am a machine-godless heathen and do not have a facebook, so just message me for contact/chatting details!

As far as costuming experience goes, as the below pics will show I have skill in metal working/shaping, leather, and limited electronics/fabric work. Look forward to hearing from you all, and being a part of what looks like a great little community!

Matthew.

Hi everyone,
I have been costuming for around the last 7 years, I use to be quite involved in the cosplay (anime/manga) scene then I drifted towards Star Wars and have been a member of both Mandalorian Mercs & Rebel Legion for a few years. After making 5 or so kits I've gotten a fair about of knowledge on armor building and general prop building.
These day when I get board I just start building a new prop or costume to waste time. After playing Warhammer on and off for the last 10 years or so,
So I just thought .. mhh why not make a Space Marine and a Guardsman :P

Greetings, everyone!

Name: Larry
Alternate handles: I'm me pretty much everywhere I go
Other boards: I'm sure I'm lurking somewhere
Age: 46
Army: A full Dark Angels Deathwing Company & Dark Angels 3rd Company, plus a healthy Ravenwing; skirmishing forces for Saim Hann Eldar, Tau, a large Kabal of Dark Eldar. My wife has an Armaggedon-sized Tyranid army.
Costumes: None complete
Outside Interests: Reading, writing, RPGs (since 1977), archeology, military wargaming & history
Website: None

A couple years ago I found Kommisar's SoB suit he'd made his wife. I made the mistake of showing it to my wife, and she was so impressed, she asked me if I could do something like that. Being between jobs at the time, our income couldn't justify the expense, but I promised I would try. The job situation slowly improved, but our focus was on trying to rebuild our lives, so cosplay got left the back burning.

Last year, my daughter was trying to decide on a costume for Halloween. Somehow, the conversation came back around to making a Sisters of Battle costume. So, as a proof of concept, I ordered a few items, and spent the 3 days before Halloween putting something simple together for her. She was a hit.

So, late last month, my wife went out to the salon and had her hair done. When she came home, she had had her long hair cut into a short sororitas bob. And the first question she asked after "do you like it?" was, "so, are you going to make my armor now?" (she says she'll even get it bleached white if I can get her suit completed, I love my wife)

So, here I am. I've been scouring the internet for 5 weeks, looking for anything and everything I can find. I've done almost 300 hours of OT this month so I can get all the material and tools I need. And I plan to spend the next 3 months building 2 cosplay costumes. My wife wants a battle sister suit, my daughter has chosen a sister hospitaller this time around, and if I can swing it, I have decided that maybe I can get a space marine suit done during that time too.

Hi
I'm Ashley from the United Kingdom and i'm planning on building a Cadian Imperial Guardsman based on the ones seen in the video game.
I would build a Space Marine but to be honest i just don't have the room to store it.
Also a few of my fellows in my 501st Garrison are building a Couple of Space Marines and a Ork MegaNob so my thinking is that it will be a good costume to have so that i can troop alongside them and also spot for them.
Most of my costumes are Star Wars related but i'm starting to branch out into other costumes i finding interesting.

I'm a student from Québec City, Canada. I speak french and english but please be gentle with me if somehow you can't understand me, still not a perfect bilingual ^^
I'm here to learn how to make awesome cosplays. I've never done one before and my interest in this just emerged from the deep of my soul. As I am also a great fan of Warhammer 40K, I though that my first cosplay could be something I've never seen before that could be awesome to see in conventions : an Eldar Wraithguard. These mechanical warriors would be awesome to walk with  throught a crowd. At first I though of a Wraithlord but then I remembered they were quite big for a lone human so I jumped of the Wraithguard idea. Of course, he must be of the Iyanden Craftworld if you know what I mean :)

Anyway I'll talk of that in an another thread. I'm glad to be here :)

Hi all,

First day looking around the site; simply amazing!   It's been fascinating reading some of the backstory for the WH40K universe too, like the story of the god emperor for instance.

I'm from the East coast of the U.S., older person but just went to my first Dragon Con this past summer. Seeing all the amazing people there, very inspirational.

I'm looking to do a rogue trader, and see that most of the exemplars here aren't in armor.  I'd like to do a costume based on the WH40K character Lady Sun Lee, captain of the Nihontu, but the only pic of her I've found shows her wearing armor.  Is it that unusual for rogue traders to wear armor?

Another forum, another introduction.
:)
Greetings squires, just dropping this so I don't seem like a total lurker.
(Which I guess I am, heck, I've lurked since the old days on the old forum.)
Finally signed up as I've started my first of hopefully many 40K builds.
I am keeping the majority of the first rather hush-hush currently though, mainly as I work on trying to understand how my new camera works.
I hope to start a WIP thread soon though, but until then, a fine forum you have here!

Outside Interests: Pen and paper RPG, video games (Fallout and Dishonored are faves), cycling, weight training, hiking, museum hopping and just starting to get into WH40K/Fantasy on the table....so many tiny marines...

Wandering into my local game store to find some rat men figures for my D&D game led to me picking up some Skaven and falling into 40K by way of Fantasy. My sister and I have really been getting into the lore and are determined to get some Space Marine representation at some of the mid Atlantic cons.

I've been blown away by the positive vibe on this forum and applaud the amazing costumes I've been seeing here. Looking forward to joining the ranks!

Hello All!
My name is Alex, a.k.a. Haplo22. I have been going strong on the entire 40k thing for nearly 10 years now and have loved every minute of it! I Started the table top game with a single Necron unit and quickly fell in love with everything that is Space Marine. Flash forward to today, and I am happy to say I have just over 3 full companies worth of Battle Brothers with my eventual goal being to claim the proud (and overly obsessed) ownership of an entire chapter. Sadly though, my Necrons are only a single Mega Force worth of awesomeness... they too will be legion by the time I am done =).

My current project is to (finally) build my own suit of Power Armor. My friends and I have been working on our suits for about a month (Saturdays mostly) and so far have our helmets built-ish; and we are hoping to be ready for our first Con this coming May. At the rate we are going, it all seems possible. Our progress would not be anywhere near this great without the fantastic resources available from this site. So most definitely thank you to everyone who has provided the pep files!

Good day eh!  Andrew from Ontario, here.  I'm new to 40k, and I LOVE the lore/story. 

I've started a suit of power armour, but haven't decided who to follow.  I want the Fire Hawks paint scheme so I've thought about writing a personal back-story to explain how I exist. 
 
I've made other Hallowe'en costumes before but none using this much foam.
Looking forward to finding all the tips and tricks I can to make this build (and future builds) a success.

Howdy,

What a great site....

I don't really play the game but like a lot of others, I am captivated by the setting and GW's brilliance (even if it dims at times) I've been painting the miniatures for over 20 years (ugg) which makes me older than I care to admit.

The miniatures lead me into building super hero garage kits, and that lead to the cosplay bug.

As for forums, I've spent time on the RPF and the Superhero Costuming forum.

My previous costumes are all Marvel. I've started seeing Space Marines and figured they needed an adversary, so we recently finished a couple of Eldar Warlocks.


Any chance of getting added to the Facebook group?

Hey I'm Mike from New Zealand.
Been fascinated by the art work of Warhammer, but never played.
Began looking at doing an armour build months ago, but didn't have the funds or space to do so. Recently I saw someone at a convention with a suit and it has rejuvenated me once again.
One day I would like to build a Black Templar, but the subject of not being able to print out the pepakura patterns has slowed me down.
