Hi everybody, this is one of the new guys around here.  And looking at fixing up a cosplay of a House Orlock Heavy.

 So far what I'm looking at doing is finding a denim jacket, dye it green and play around with a soldering gun and such.  Heavy canvas or possibly green cargo pants, and my boots.

What I was wondering is if anyone had any advice they'd like to give on what I should use for the weapon-load out and such.

Necromuda... I hear and I like, I like a lot.

Looking at the picture on the game workshop website, they're just as I remember, biker gang of the future! Heavy blue trousers (or jeans if you want, but I'm not sure if they'd be heavy enough), white shirt, big black boots. I'd go for a big studded belt, I mean, it doesn't show that on the models, but I just think it would be cooler, especially with grenades hanging off of it. And of course the denim jacket, or even leather if you want. The heavy appears to have some kind of facemask on with a pipe coming from it, but you don't really need to I guess. And of course the definitive red bandana.

Now the big part, the weapons. Seeing as you're gooing to be a heavy, you've picked probably the hardest one  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' />
For a harness, get a garden strimmer harness. I've got one and it's like a reinforced backpack thing with a pad and hook on the front to help support the weight of the strimmer. Holding a strimmer is conveniently like holding a heavy bolter/stubber. If you have a harness, you can just let go of the gun and be able to use your hands, which is extremely useful at any con. I know I wish my SOLDIER battle harness was strong enough to support my buster sword.  T-T

For a heavy weapon, (I don't have experience making guns, Khaine knows how I'm going to make my shuriken catapult), I think it'd be good to base it around a large toy gun and block of dense foam. Get the toy gun (mainly for the handle and a bit of body and support) and shove it into the block of dense foam which will be the basic shape of the heavy bolter. Once you've made the other shapes on it, glue them on and glue foamboard or some other smooth, hard material onto the foam shape, so that your heavy bolter doesn't look like it's made of foam. Paint and add detail.

As I said, I don't really have experience making guns, that's just an idea I thought up quickly, I'm sure some of the other members will give you a better, clearer idea of how to do it. [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Well if anyone has any helpful ideas.

I'm looking at setting up a flamer heavy with a stub-pistol or possibly a auto-pistol.

While the trick is if anyone knows of any ways of fixing up a jean jacket to look like it's been used and abused at a smelting factory for a few years.

Fatiguing cloth isn't too hard. First, get access to a car. Second, run over the jacket a lot. Doing it on a gravel surface will probably tear it up a lot more. If it's supposed to come from a smelting factory, try taking a cigarette lighter to it in strategic spots or rubbing ash and charcoal over areas where it would get a lot of wear and tear, like the elbows and cuffs. Sandpaper also helps a lot.

Before doing all this, just run it through the washing machine every time you do a load of laundry. That will soften it up and lighten the color a bit. Other than that advice, be creative! There are many ways to beat up clothing.

Find a friend with a rock-tumbler and stick it in there for a few hours.
