Gears of war MK2 Lancer build

Hi all,

So I’ve wanted to buy the lancer replica for years but could never justify the price, thought I’d have a go at building a replica myself. It’s going to have a working chainsaw (it will spin but won’t cut anything!) and it’s going to hopefully fire Nerf darts or something similar. Using mainly MDF I’ve cut out a fair few pieces so far, nothing is fixed together yet but I’m enjoying the project.

In the process of working on more parts but this is pretty much my progress so far..

Managed to make a few more parts, setting up the wheel at the front for the chainsaw to go round, and just finished the first tooth for the chainsaw!

Finished cutting out all the teeth this morning (just the main parts) laid them out to get a rough measurement of the chainsaw sections. Also cut out a few other parts for some detail. Think it’s coming along nicely, so much work to do but I love it!

Morning guys, thought I’d show in a bit more detail the parts I’ve made so far, layer it all out to get a rough idea of the look once fixed together. Think it’s coming along nicely.

Lots of tedious small pieces to cut out, hopefully I can start working on the pulleys for the chainsaw soon…

Almost finished making the sprockets for the chainsaw today, took a lot of time but I’ve been meaning to get this part done for a while, I can hopefully progress a little quicker with these parts made.

Thanks for the progress updates! I'm enjoying watching this come together! What is your plan for painting the MDF?
Thanks glad you’re enjoying it! The plan is to seal it all with either PVA or an actual mdf sealant and then I’m probably going to be using something like rustoleum to finish it off. Haven’t fully decided yet.

Finally got some more tooth parts cut out, not had a lot of time this last week. Teeth are coming along well, can’t wait to get them all fixed together.

Glued a few teeth today and inserted some screws for detail, now waiting for them to dry. Also fitted one of the gears to the motor, just to check sizing and fittings.

Just checking the teeth fit on the wire with the spacers and all that before I go too far making them all, seems to work out how I wanted.
