Hey all,

After being directed here by reading through Kol Badar's thread on the rpf i thought I'd share my attempt at an astartes pattern suit.

my build has been in the works for just over three weeks now and I'm definitely learning as i go, there are pics on my thread over at rpf under the same username and i shall attempt to post some here too (as soon as i figure out how).

The suit started life as a basic mk7 design but due to an unsuccessful resin attempt has had to be rebuilt into a mk4/mk7 hybrid, a small setback but a fortunate one as it now gives me the option of pre heresy legion schemes to tempt myself with on top of all post heresy schemes.

colour choice and weapon loadout haven't yet been decided but i keep coming back to the idea of Luna Wolves, Emperors Children or Imperial Fists so it may end up in me flipping a coin or two to decide.

As i mentioned earlier when i figure out how to post pics (or if some kind forum member could guide this newbie) i shall create a more detailed post

++Mark++

There are two ways to post the images, depending on your preference. You can tag the URL of the image and place it in between img tags (example below), or you can click the "insert image" link about the text box you're typing in and it does this for you. The insert image looks like a Mona Lisa painting.

Code: [Select]

This image, placed between the tags will display, like so:

As promised, a selection of pics from my build. All of the pics were taken by my remembrancer with her phone so it looks like i may have to ask her to lower the resolution a little for the next set.

I may have to excuse myself for some of the facial expressions, working 12hrs and then coming home to stare at printed patterns may have started taking it's toll on me

I had originally thought space wolves for the mk 7 suit  ;D ;D but it's taken me being signed off work for a few days with a particularly bad trapped nerve in my shoulder to be able to get a good cut and shave, plus it was becoming hard to judge how well my bionic would fit fighting with all that hair.

here are a few more pics of what i've been able to scratch together while semi paralysed these past couple of days

As for the pink helmet in one of the pics, pink wasn't exactly my first choice of colour but i can't really argue about free cardstock







The chainsword is far from done in it's current state as I'm pretty much learning from scratch when it comes to foam builds, The bionic is also a rough draft with some parts being templated out first and the rest being taken from the off cuts from the bolter and chainsword builds

After a good few goes with the pep route i realize that it may not be the best way to go for me, After reading some threads for foam suits i've decided to take that approach instead.

However, i would like to ask the opinion of the forum on one small matter.

Which scale, or more to the point, will i be able to use the 850 scale files. I stand around 5'6" - 5'7" on a good day and i'd like to know if anyone here is in the same position, i was using the 758 scale files for the peps but felt as though my head was always out of proportion to the torso, i know that i'll have to use some higher stilt bases for a near full size build but i still have still doubt in the back of my mind that i may just be wasting my time building something i can't wear.

Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated

I'm 5'5" and am going with the 935 scale.  My stilts are right at 18" tall.  I'm in the stages of adjusting the stilts before I continue.  I will try to finish up the legs and body to get a better idea of the true scale, but nothing has popped up YET that screams I need to go smaller.

Hey there...I'm at 5'7.5" and I'm using  935 scale as well. You'll have more room for adjustments to fit into it but IT IS WEARABLE. You will just have to adjust to using stilts and some limits to mobility. Really depends if you want the full scale vs. full mobility / comfort of human scale. So it's a matter of objective.

Sethusk and ViolentDream,

thanks for the replies and feedback, I've decided to go for the speed and comfort route with the 850 scale for this suit but I'm definitely not ruling out doing a 935 scale sometime in the future (probably next suit in line although i doubt my missus will be too happy, I'm currently trying to convince her it would be a good idea for her to own a suit of SoB armor)

Thanks again for showing that it can be done regardless of height  ;D

My foam arrived on time an i eagerly set to tracing templates and cutting, the end result of which was this


however, the process was not without its casualties
 

I realize now that maybe making the cuts in these parts probably wasn't the best of ideas ::)

another pic for scale comparison


The pep boot is the 758 scale and the foamy is the 850, next up for the suit is the second boot and then a greave, At a rough guess i think i'll be looking at using 8" - 10" stilts dependant on where the knee lines up best for me to be able to keep mobility

Progress is well and truly being made at the minute with another boot finished along with a greave and knee, the second greave and knee are drawn up ready to be traced to the foam too, Quick question though, I'm using Rraijjar's A4 versions of pileruds files and I'm not sure whether the greaves are "handed" like the thighs, do i have to flip my template over or not for the right hand greave?

More pics have been added and I'll upload a few when i get more time to do so but for now here's a link to my bucket account, all pics are there for anyone interested.

Time for a small progress update

The last of my first 12 foam mats is now gone and this is the product so far of all the cutting (both foam and fingers),



i lost a mat due to getting the first attempt at a toe cap disastrously wrong so i had to forgo one of the shins for now, there is another knee plate and a belt completed too but they aren't shown on the photos.





With both thighs and the cod in place, i can't help but think that the cod is too large around the waist so i may look into the same modification that Henrik performed on his blood angel if it continues to bother me.

I just flipped it ;) no extra printing then

@ progress, looks great so far :)

Thanks Rraijjar, and thanks again for the A4 files, they make the build feel a lot quicker with not having to keep changing all the paper settings every time i open pepakura
