Default Bolters

So Im making a Bolter and a Heavy Bolter out of nerf guns any ideas on what I should do. I forgot what I used to make the bolter but it looks preety good. Its in storage and im using the Vulcan nerf gun for the heavy bolter. I also wanted to make a whole costume but its super hard to make any ideas on how I should make that too.

I was thinking on just making Space marine armor.

-The Emperor protects.
-And having a loaded bolter never hurt, either.

Ambitious! You may wish to try a different outfit first time round just to get into the swing of things. How long left until the event you're attending with this outfit? You could go for the Space Marine if you've got plenty of time to make the suit.

I'd cut it out of high-density foam.

Fair enough. Well there's one company in particular who had something of a run-in with Heresy Online last year, if I remember rightly. They made their suits out of cardboard and they looked absolutely stunning! The creators were a touch on the sensitive side though. ;)

That being said some of their work was pretty good.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?
