Step 15: Show Off

Now that you've got some serious-looking ginormous battle armor, the only thing left to do is to take it out in public and amaze the heck out of everyone you meet.

It's also a good idea to find a few followers of some lesser emperor and make them feel inferior.
I know you must be terribly busy, but I'd actually like to know if you'd do other things from the 40K universe. Im actually looking for a Tempestus Scion cosplay and I don't have the materials or skill to do it myself.
<p>how much does it weigh</p>
<p>Just finished my first full armour build so thought Id let you guys see it. My thanks to Thorssil for his excellent instructable which helped to make the build a success.</p>
<p>Oh my god, your first picture is <em><strong>priceless.</strong></em> The idea of a seven foot tall armoured space marine from millenia in the future coming to Earth and pointing a deadly weapon at a little old lady doing her shopping on a foggy winter day... :'D</p>
<p>That particular picture appeared in the Sun newspaper with the tag line &quot;I paid for the carrier bag honest mister!&quot; but yeah the thought of a local supermarket hiring Space Marines to enforce the new carrier tax is somewhat amusing. She was just a random passer by and was genuinely terrified of it, the little kid however wasn't phased in the slightest n just had to figure out how he could play with it. lol</p>
<p>can you link me to the artical?</p>
<p>Who can I pay to build this for me?<br>Seriously, I want to have it commissioned, but can't find a proper store.</p><p>Anyone have any ideas?</p>
I'm available for commission. Shot me a message and I'll see what I can do for you.
<p>Hey, I'd love to commission a suit of unpainted armor from you. Please reach out if you're still interested in taking any commissions at this time!</p>
How much i have to pay to get one of those armours in my size?? and with shipping to germany?
<p>Since other people are asking, could I commission you for an iron hands with a powerfist? (Maybe a vanguard or assult marine?)</p>
How much for a lifesize blood raven terminator armor and are these wearable?
<p>i'll build it for you, but she wont be cheap if you want it real soon.</p>
<p>lazy mother trucker</p>
<p>sometime .. u dont have access to the technology and tools :D</p>
It's incredible builds like this that make Instructables the best place on the Net for DIY inspiration !
<p>Hey, are you taking orders for one of there by chance?</p>
<p>OH MY GOD thats freaking amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!</p>
<p>So, my topic question is: What holds the pieces together? I know in the video you mentioned straps. I assume they go from piece to piece or do they run a full length? For example, the legs. Do you have a strap that goes from thigh to knee cap, then another from kneecap to shin, or just one piece going from thigh to shin and tied in the knee on the way? What kind of strap? Buttoned? Velcro? Riveted? I assume more than one as well to keep them from twisting, possibly one front, one back, and one on each side? And the rubber filler pieces, were they glued on as well?</p><p>Hoping for this to be my next project. Been waiting til I had enough experience and confidence to go extreme (to this or close to this degree). After using stilts for my 8 foot tall Frankenstein in the mall, I can say I am comfortable on stilts around kids and people. Just the patience to build it...</p>
<p>Fantastic job! remember playing with the minitures as a youngster, only thing i didn&acute;t like was the colour...But as an old long fang these days that&acute;s to be expected ;)</p>
<p>Truly epic, you used the most common or cheap materials to build something awesome. <br><br>Congrats the size is killer and I bet many people will buy it for sure. <br>BTW I&acute;m not even a warhammer fan.</p>
<p>that picture of you with just the torso on is hilarious! Thanks for the laugh</p>
now build a chaos version... and a Dreadnought
<p>Hey Shawn, Myself Ankit I'm from India, I just love your work man, you are truly awesome. I always follow your blog and all your stories and work helped me to build this giant..Its 7 ft tall, i know somethings are missing but i won Comic Con India with that cosplay and that was my &quot;Embrace Yourself&quot; pose.Hope you like it..</p>
Wow! Great craftsmanship.<br>Not many people will hit the &quot;I made it&quot; button.<br>Congrats.
<p>One thing that I thought about as far as the hydration goes. Have you considered a hydration backpack, such as a camelback? Also, you appear to have some extra space in there, you could build in some ventilation fans that would help with cooling.</p>
<p>Hey, someone that gets atmoshperic pressure and a distributed load!</p>
<p>Cyanoacrylate = Crazy Glue/Superglue.</p>
<p>Dude...awesome...simply awesome!</p>

I was about to start on the project when I realized that Pepakura wasnt Mac compatible. Does anyone know of a good Mac program thats similar to Pepakura?
<p>Don't know if this is still needed but you can actually use the Pepakura Viewer on a Mac using Wineskin. Look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cfqLrklu50</p>
hey was wondering if you would be able to make me a suit of grey knights armour I'll pay you handsomely oh and then ship it to Scotland again I'll pay you please message back with rough estimates cheers
<p>Amazing.</p><p>But...I was wondering, how much does making one of these cost? I mean, just printing the pepakura model lifesize is pretty expensive. I can't even imagine how much a single armour building process can have cost.</p>
321,016 VIEWS? 647 LIKES? HOW THE?.....
<p>Turns out it's good.</p>
<p>THATS INSANE </p>
<p>is there any possible way i could buy this off you, this is awesome and literally i would die for one?</p>
<p>I'm not sure if I'll get a response given when this was posted, but I'm curious about two things:<br><br>How are the stilts mounted to the &quot;sole&quot; of the shoe?<br><br>How much side to side motion do they have? I saw in this and the other stiltwalking video that you can spread your feet apart pretty far and still keep them on the ground. This implies the ankle flexes a bit?<br><br>I'm making a costume of similar size and have been looking at options for the feet.</p>
<p>The stilts are bolted onto the sole of the character's foot. There's a piece of foam floor mat cut to fit between the bottom of the stilt and the inside of the boot in order to give it a bit of flexibility while still keeping it mostly straight.</p>
I LIKE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY I WOULD LIKE IT IF YOU COULD TEACH ME HOW TO CREATE DEVELOP
Hey I love the costume and I really want to make a few sets myself. Unfortunately money is tight for me. Is there any way to make a smaller form of the armour ??? I have looked around and found nothing. If you can accept this challenge I would love to see it. Consider it a kid/teen version of the Space Marines XD love the whole thing
I would use one articulated arm and not hold anything in it, and one attached arm for a weapon, that way you can still use one hand as an actual hand. I love your build though and am planning on using it to make my own suit of armour in a few months time.
