|plugg||This is very good work, I have seen a paper dreadnought figure on the internet and someone who made a marine head but not as good as this. i am building a dreadnought tech priest and 3 spacemarine costumes for the carnivals this year. Good luck with this and I know how much time and effort it takes to do something like this. Plugg|

Is this thread still active? or is there a new thread.

I hope you are still checking the forum Horgh cuz I had a quick technical question. When I try to print the pepakura out I keep getting a message about the scale being different than my paper size. Is the card stock a different size? or what size paper do you recommend for this?
I am trying to get the dimensions so I can convert the designs into templates for a foam medium I want to try. I am afraid the conversion of scale my printer is trying to do will make everything too small and could scale each page differently. So if you or anyone else has a suggestion or knows of something I missed reading please let me know, thanks.

|johnbriner||I found it intensely majestic great! I was stunned! You are a breathless artist with an interesting work! Completely fine and dandy! Keep up the good work, my friend!|

Okay so I downloaded that software "Pepakura" and loaded the Helm into it, couldn't save as not paid yet for the password.
but here is a pic of the .obj in there for you.

Hey Horgh I have .obj files of a good Space Marine if you want to have a look... hmmm let me look and see if I can get a pic up here for you.
Okay this is the suit, I used it in a Programme called Daz Studio.

I owe you all an apology. The last time I posted an update was back in November, for Christ's sake. Needless to say, I have been extremely busy, and anyone who knows the stress of university and computer science knows, it's not a subject to take lightly.
I have been thoughtful in my decline, however, and decided that, for technical reasons, the helmet I had made will not be part of the suit. I will by all means continue to construct it, if anything as just a piece of decor to compliment my bookshelf. The reasons are as follows:
Weight - Fucking heavy. It's about 4kg, and will probably be worse by the time it's fully done. This is because of the car body filler, and the fact that it has horns. It's also come to my attention that because of the horns' weight, the balance is quite off.
Size - Actually, if I wear it and open my mouth, my jaw creeps out from, so it's a bit too short.
Poly - Because I was moderately lazy with the creation of the helmet in the first place, I stole the original Dawn of War space marine helmet straight from the game and upped the size by a lot, meaning the actual number of polys (or faces) were very low, too low to smooth out without a LOT of bodyfiller.
Piss - This is just a side point that I could fix but has bemused me regardless - the interior smells of piss. I don't know why or how, but I think one of my cats got in there while I left it in the garage... little bastards.
I will be wearing a helmet, and will be constructing a new helmet soon, but it will be without horns mainly for ease of wearing and construction... but I think deserves some runes here and there... and teeth! Here's a screen of the thing I designed:
Quite proud of this one actually, it must be the most complex thing I've made that will be very easy to piece together (if you want to have a go yourself, link here).
Anyway, think not this project dead, I'm just a bit busy. By the looks of it, the new Necrons codex will be done and raged at before I'm finished.

|C'Tan Chimera||Why do you have to go and make that all look so easy to the point where I want to try and fail catastrophically? Amazing, man.|

Un-fragging-credible. I have been insired. I need to try this once I have some space to work. It'd be difficult in a small apartment. Needs more of a garage I'm thinking.
I've always wanted to try this though, and this is the first tutorial that actually seems feasable with my limited skill and experience at working with things like this on this scale.
