    Ever since I first saw the Horus and Anubis Guards in the original Stargate movie I was hooked.... huge fan of these.

    tumblr_mbyid1jipQ1rj5fjto1_500.jpg

    I have always wanted a "head" to display and to my delight JFcustom released some files of the "head".

    So with files downloaded and printed, turned into templates and marked out on foam, I set to building myself a cool display.

    Went with Horus..

    Detail work with a sharp blade...

    A little heat gun treatment and PRESTO ! .... Nice clean line work...

    Some 2mm foam strips were added later for raised detail.

    That's looking really good. I've always loved the armour from them.

    How do you plan to display it after you're done?

    Detail work.
    IMG_5462.JPG IMG_5463.JPG


    I wasn't happy with the green foam detail, it looked far too flat. Thicker foam was used and I think it looks far better.

    More details......

    I love it too, but my wife refuses to let me have one in the house as it represents a false god. LOL! Ironic.

    Good work mate, I'll just have to enjoy watching your build instead.

    Thanks for the kind words all ! :)

    @ Ikras display wise I was just going to make a simple base and pipe stand but this build has taken a turn ;)

    So ..... I found out that the actors who played Maj. Carter and Col. O'Neill (Amanda Tapping & Richard Dean Anderson) will be appearing at a Convention being help in my part of the world later in the year.

    My display is now going to be a costume !

    Started work on the gauntlets.

    The neck/shoulder armour was next on the list.

    I had to employ the help of my wife's dressmakers form to help hold it in shape.

    This is looking great. The detail work must take ages cutting it all in. How did you get the detail on the top of the head/neck on the back (in the pictures I've copied)? Did you carve into the foam to get the shapes?



    It's great to see it evolving into the full suit. Going to an event in a couple of month and Teal'c (Christopher Judge) will be there. Would have loved to go in something like this to it but there's never enough time.

    I can continue to watch this build for now though. Really looking forward to seeing it progress.

    A bit of paint and bam ! Battle worn boots.

    The raised detail are individual foam pieces cut and carved with a dremel sanding bit and then glued to the main piece.

    Even authentic mud. You're going all out there.

    Detail is looking great on the shoulders. Must take a while to cut all that in.

    Thanks for the kind words all :)

    Details don't take that long to do..... I use a sharp blade to slice in a line, 2-3mm in depth and then run a heat gun over the slices. The heat "shrinks" the foam and gives you nice, clean lines.

    I read that the chainmail suits used in the show were actually knitted wool jumpers and pants, thinking this would be a easy and light alternative to real chainmail I started a hunt for a decent jumper ( I couldn't knit to save my life, nor no I have the time).

    Found a decent jumper with a "chainmail" look to it.... ordered 2 ... One for the top and one to be cut up and made intochausses (leg mail).

    Finished off the shins.

    Neck and shoulder piece all painted up and done.

    The bigger lines were done with a soldering iron , at first I wasn't to thrilled with the "melted" look of each line but once paint and weathering was added I changed my mind .

    I realized I had forgotten the side panels on the chest armour .. so back to the workbench with those pieces.

    IMG_5766.JPG IMG_5767.JPG

    I had some issues with the 1st face I made so I made a 2nd and got it painted up ready for weathering.

    Great work, I am just cutting out paper templates to start my build, and may now change to foam as the detail looks amazing.

    did you use a template for the lines or just freehand them

    Thanks for the encouraging words all ! :)

    Superhorus - no template used for the lines mate . I picked a couple of pictures that showed the lines and just free handed them .

    Ok .. well the helmet is all finished.. face glued on and a black mesh screen glued in so no-one can see me in it.

    Time to make a start on the staff weapon ....... pvc pipe and foam used.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Plaster was applied to the foam to give some texture... it's a water based plaster so a paint brush and water can be used to smooth it out.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Details added with 2mm foam and I used alfoil to bulk out the detail .

    Primer sprayed on and ready for final coats.

    Not having the time or patience to make chain mail I found some on-line perfect for what I needed.

    I have attached this to a leather belt .... it's got a bit of weight to it.

    Staff weapon is all finished and ready to go !

    crypto,

    Have you thought about making an alternate business end of the staff, one ready to fire? It would look even more kickass in photos with your fantastic armour. You could use rare earth magnets to hold them to the end of the staff and make it easier to switch.
