Thats right folks. as much as I fell in love with the Space wolves and Lehman Russ back in 1992, in order for this costume to work, I think I would need to choose a more recognizable Chapter.

So heres a TEST, ill say it again, TEST left lower leg and knee.  Pretty sure the version 2 will be a bit bulkier.  but it works for now...

thoughts?





and no that is not a SM boot.  its from Gear of War, just to see what it looked like.

This looks very realistic! I can't wait to see what it looks like once you're finished!

That is very nice! Foam I take it?

That boot looks like it could seriously hurt some heretic ass.
Love it so far, though you shouldn't worry about people recognizing you. If they know what an ultramarine is, they will know what a space wolf is.

I've found that once people know that the universe exists, they tend to get pretty into it.
Build whatever chapter you want, but that boot is pretty awesome all ready. Can't wait to see this progress.

hard to see, but by touch and texture, and paint applied after, it makes the world of difference.
foam absorbs alot of the paint you apply, the plastidip stops that alot.
its rubberized coating doesn't seem to rub or peel off, its a great thing to prime your armor with because other paints stick to it much better and get a much better consistency of coat than without it.

i experimented with some scraps awhile back and usually spray paint would have a powdery texture or flake off when the foam would flex, the plastidip wont come off, and the paint sticks to it really well, hence why i swear by it.


by "overcoat" do you mean the first layer of paint you put on, or the last? as this is the first layer that everything else sticks to.

this foam paint sticks to very well. its not standard foam.

it actually doenst absorb it very well.

and Evercoat is a brand/type of primer that the R2 builders use on wooden legs.

the plastidip is not made for foam, it just works really well for it.
it's honestly worth experimenting with sometime, but your progress is looking great!

update.

built the other shin the other night as well as biceps and forearms.

will post pictures after work tonight.

Probably going to stay as an Ultramarine or switch to a dark angel.  a SW at this point might be too intensive to finish in the timeline I have set.  I can always repaint it after the fact.
