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.

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. ;)

Bolt shells and roses, someone posted up one of their pieces (either terminator armour or Abbadon) and a few others poked a bit of fun. They didn't like that, called Heresy out on being jerks and having the moral high ground, and then went on to generalize and slag off Heresy on Facebook.

That being said some of their work was pretty good.

You may want to check out cosplay.com or other site like them. They usually have people that can make armor out of foam.
