Ive got a very nice set of cadian armor, with the extra plates and such, all made by a very talented propmaker:
http://spatcave.com/40kcostume.htm  this is his webpage on it

heres a folder with a few addional shots i took, including some "insider" shots of it: http://urbandecayonline.com/costume/IGoutfit/


the lasrifle is primarly resin, made by another kickbutt prop maker, named matsu





something that IS aviable for sale, is the "uniform" we used underneath the armor,  as ref inthat first link, its really a chef's outfit really, but the color and "cut" is danged near PERFECT to what the few  "unarmored' cadian models seem to be wearing

the harness/webgear  also seems to match, especially the artwork from the uplifting primer  (its a british M58 web set)

well, questions? comments?

always been fond of Matsuo's work with the lasguns, and the armor is obviously very professional.

my only issue with the costume in the slightest is that the helmets look wrong, it's the way the ear guards fan out, just makes people wearing them look like that have odd shaped or smaller heads..

otherwise, i thought it was awesome that so much of the armor was made, and that many were showing their love for the emperor!

Ah Cadians. My Sister of Battle character was originally born on Cadia, and has the signature violet eyes as per Mr. Abnett.

So what sort of Cadian source material have you found?

On topic, that costume looks good, aside from the helmet issues Kommissar mentioned.
