It's neither right nor wrong Galahad, because it's not up to us to judge; but I believe the term you're looking for is "specialist"

:what, there was a meltagun? cyclops:

kaede: Look very cool & well done on winning the comp.

Alway intresting to see people making the armour & weapons. Just I done a HND model making course (architects, props, protype) in Glasgow (made a IW helmet & a Storm of Iron battle sence) just alway intresting on how people make the armour. Also what type of material the person use just help for future ref for any project/future jobs.

Just want to ask, how did you make the Melta gun, as I do not see anything on your FAQ.

But again look really cool

Looks really good, much better than the usual fare I see at the UK Games Day, although I think thats slowly improving over the years. It seems the US have had marines walking around at the odd Games Day for a while now. Where as here in blighty we seem to have a few guys dressed as Guard, Bone if he's there and occasional scantidly clad women as Witch Elves or Sorceresses.

Much more interesting costume here I say, looks like it was worth the effort as well. Grats on your win.

Thanks everyone! Means a lot. Makes me want to make more 40k costumes in the future.
Maybe I'd do a Repentia for fun, besides the more serious costumes.
Doesn't seem very difficult, and I've still got lots of red fabric left.

Insane: Meltagun is made with the same material as the armour bits, just different painting technique.

If I weren't stuck studying for my current degree I would study arts.
Always wanted to, but never had the chance, not even in high school, or primary for that matter.
I'd love to work with Fiberglass and metal someday, but I don't have the funds nor the space or tools for it,
so I make do as best as I can with the resources I have.

Magician: good luck with that! sounds like a time-consuming project,
but if you're patient with it and do your research, I'm sure it'll turn out great.

Wow! Best SoB costume I've seen, by far! A lot of people I've talked to say they're tough to make, harder then normal Power Armor.

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

I'm very impressed. And like Gal, I have to wonder if it's bad that I spent more time checking out your meltagun than anything else...
