    Hellboy is one of my all time favorite cinematic characters and I was thinking about doing a small run of different ammo for Hellboy's Samaritan.

    Here are a few prototypes:

    One idea I had were these black obsidian rounds featuring real metal tips.

    I was also thinking of a light up green tracker bullet (also with a metal tip) closer to the one seen on screen than the ones released by sideshow.

    And of course, the bullets filled with Holy water, clover leaf, silver shavings, white oak... the works!

    I'm looking into a variety of different fabrication methods and materials ranging from 3D printing, cold casting with various metals, possibly some glass, anodizing, etc.

    I'm digging the look of these 40mm grenade rounds. Might try a few like this and see how they would translate to the Samaritan style of rounds:

    ammo_40mm_01_800.jpg

    That anodized blue is purdy.

    I'm open to other ideas as well if anyone has any.

    My plan is to offer these individually and as sets of 4 at a discount rate. Prices will probably range somewhere between $36-50 per round depending on it's features and materials used.



    If your interested in this project chime in and let me know!

    I'm definitely interested in a variety of shells. Like the idea of the anodised blue as well. Could make is a HI-EX round ?

    Cool build. Not got the gun to go with them sadly.
    If you are looking for more variants this guy drew some based off ammo in one of the computer games

    ugh these bullets are going to look so rad on my Samaritan. even holstered,the lights would look so great.

    would you consider even a red or blue glowing/pulsating light bullet?

    The Blue has to be liquid ultraviolet light, like from Underworld.

    I might be able to get some kind of pulsating effect going. Hmmm



    The blue fusion round is in fact filled with a liquid ultraviolet material. The casing has exotic matter harvested from a rare aquatic Elemental. It's capable of a micro nuclear blast and should be used sparingly only in certain situations where collateral damage is of no concern. Also a good choice for those pesky vamps! It cost me a pretty penny. Purchased from a Sacred Fluid Dispenser at the Troll Market. :lol

    I'm still in the prototyping stages. Looking at how best to produce these, what materials to use while still keeping them affordable.

    I'll convert this from an interest thread to a FS thread once I have product available for purchase.




    Here is a new mock-up I just finished.

    I give you . . .



    The Holy Round - Featuring a white marble bullet quarried from the same earth as the statues sculpted by Michelangelo that adorn Saint Peter's Basilica within the Vatican and blessed by the Pope himself. (Not really, it's a translucent resin mix :p) Laser cut stainless steel band and black oxide casing.

    Everything is looking very awesome here!
    Love the way you invented some lore for the blue and holy bullet btw hahaha
    I just had one question: what are exactly the measurements for these rounds? I have a samaritan kit by rgriesbeck (http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=202333&highlight=samaritan) and since some tolerances were needed for his design to work properly, I don't know if these would fit. It would be grat if you could clarify.
    Also, very interested in your final results hehe!

    I'm not sure how close his design is to the Sideshow version, but the measurements are:

    2 3/4" +/- circumference
    15/16" diameter for the base
    7/8" +/- diameter of the casing

    these are looking so good. can't wait to get 4 of this for my Samaritan!

    Will the bottom of the bullets say anything on them besides BPRD? maybe something like "bite me" or "crap" would be neat

    I actually really like that idea. Didn't the rounds for the "big baby" say something like "suck on this"?

    I was re-watching Hellboy this weekend. And saw how the original bullets were stored...
