As cool as an idea it is im not sure you'll make a huge amount from it, you could try pawning it off to fancy dress shop but your best bet would be to seel it at games day and such like, ebay no dout will find you a few customers. personaly i have enough WW1 and 2 gear to look like a guardsmen as it. have howver given me an know a jewler? i may have to get an aquila ring theres something id pay for!

GW would probably shut you down pretty quick if you started selling it on any sort of scale, which is unfortunate, because I'd probably buy a set if you could make them long enough to save up for it
If you keep it on a small scale, though, you could probably stay off GW's radar, especially since they don't make anything like it, and you wouldn't really be competing with them, per se.
Wo with that said, how much were you thinking of charging? You probably would have a market, there's lots of people that would love to own this stuff, and don't have the skills or expertise or work space to make it themselves.

hmm.. yeah I havent really figured a price for the armor yet, as is we are about a quarter of the way through, we are doing this right though so it could take a while. the helmets will have radios and voice changers along with lit eye lenses and fans to keep you cool. the armor itself will have fans to cool you as well and will be padded pretty nicely. some of the problems that we have seen with other armors is sizing, which we are also running into some snags with. we created "stilt" shins, to give the wearer some extra height but this makes the arms look short and stubby. but there really isnt a good way to have control of your hands and extend the arms, unless your stretch armstrong. and in general we have added bulk to the suits to take away the focus on your trex arms. ill try and get some pictures up soon but my camera took a swim. as for the sisters of battle, they seem to be a bit easier, less armor, at least less that you can see. the fabric that covers alot of them should make the costume pretty comfortable (heat wise) but the helmet will need fans too, the other problem im having with them is the lack of pictures that i have found, ( i also may not have looked too hard.) the eldar helm and armor is pretty cool though! ok wow, this was a long rant. price wise though, have to finish it to see how many hours and how tough its going to be.
