Is it wrong that I spent the whole time inspecting the details on the meltagun?
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" :wink:

: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 :biggrin: & 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 :biggrin:

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.

This gets my vote. Keep us posted on how you are doing ^^

Fiberglass and metal would be good, but it would be alot of hassle carrying it around everywhere :( And just looking at fiberglass makes me feel itchy.

That is a nice outfit.

A repentia one?

You do know that a repentia outfit is some scrolls on your breasts and crotch, plus a hood covering your face, and they swing when you move so your....

You get the picture.

Maybe you should do the helmet instead. So you don't get attacked by hormone-infused gaming nerds like us ;)

I wonder how hard a mechanicus techpriest kit would be to make?

Oh, and i forgot, dang, that supposedly "emo" picture, it really brings out your face, you look awesome in that pic!

Big props from me to you. better done than most of the marine looks i have seen and i could only imagine a squad of 20 ladies dressed like that would make me mere mortal shiver in me boots ... or tremble from (CENSORED) :laugh:

in all seriousness i like the way ya did it. it all comes together well. i didn't see a backpack in these pics. did ya go all out and make the back pack too? if not no biggie just added props is all :grin:

Thanks for all the replies and compliments! :victory:
It's very inspirational, makes me want to do more 40k costumes! :)

That's my namesake, yes. I'm surprised you managed to guess it, there are tons of (less interesting) Kaedes out there. :eek:k:

AnubisBlade: yes, I made a backpack as well, but no one seem to have taken any pictures of me from behind :p
It's the shiny black thing with spiked balls that rises a little above my shoulders.

Klomster: I would probably customize the Repentia to suit the level of showy-ness that I'm comfortable with. And I would never debut it in public, only in photos. My main reason for making the repentia would be having an excuse to make a chainsword :)

Riandro: I went to the expo on the saturday. Usually the crowd thins out by then and I don't have to worry about poking someone's eyes out with the pointy parts of the costumes. Also, most of the serious costume-makers are left, but the random drop-ins from outsiders is less frequent.

Well negima is the only Anime I read and Kaede is one of my favorite characters. As a matter of fact, I have her as a Desktop wallpaper :mrgreen:
