you can order it from me. i can have the foam/plastics place here in town drop ship it to you. $30.00 bucks for two sheets of 72x48 in white. in black or blue woudl be a longer wait and about 40 bucks.

i just used hot glue. it bends easy enough.

thanks very much. now quick question about this armor in particular. How did you manage to make the shoulders so well? I want to make the "Furious Gladiator" armor from WoW, and the shoulders look similar in shape, but ive been working with cardstock for patterns and can't figure out a way to get that seamless curve for the life of me.

oh there are seams. trust me. they are there. not sure if i haev pics of a step by step process, but bassically its a rectngle with "long triangles" cut out of the top side. i glued the middle 2 and outter singles together at the top, and glued everythign else in place afterwards.

mostly i didint have any templates, and eyeballed it all.

if you look back a ways there is one shoulder pad i built first, that the general concesus was it was far too small. i still have it, and am thinking about painting it up as something else.

Awesome work, especially the progressive changes for capturing the favor of an Ultramarine.

Would you be so kind as to explain how you hold the various pieces of armor in place? Elastic? Velcro? Friction? Straps? Gravity? Etc... Thanks!

sure.

unlike TK armor, this is ALL done with Hot Glue.

i do have 3 quick release buckles in the back of the torso so i can put it on and off.

I love this one, cause I look like a toy.

How did I miss this before? This is amazing! Finally someone who's done a Marine in scale, rather than stupidly oversized pouldrons and greaves.

The legs do seem a little bit small but I put that down to camera angle.

I've always like the Mk6 legs. If you went with that style you wouldn't have to worry about working out the knee pads.

I also like the idea of a loin cloth. Robes could be cool as well but then you'd have to repaint as Dark Angels or Black Templars. ;)

Well done mate. I have been an Ultramarine player for about 10 years and this does us proud.

The loin cloth would be great as you have done a veteran colour scheme and thusly it is very apropriate.

Scale for wargames are always difficult as they are heroic scale - heads/weapons and often accesories are oversized!

Where is the bolter from?
