Brother-Captain Colin, Grey Knight Terminator by Colin-Midwest Brother-Captain Colin, Grey Knight Terminator by Colin-Midwest
Made with expanding foam, fiberglass, and other assorted materials and fillers. It took approximately THREE YEARS to complete and I'm very happy that this costume has finally been finished.

I didn't wear the helmet for this photo because I wanted to capture some dramatics for the "brother-captain" look.

The original construction thread is here:

Everyone I know who plays 40K always asks why people hate the Grey Knights. If you ask any other player they will tell you that they are: Over powered, extremely broken, nobody plays with them, they're not cool, and that people who play Grey Knights have no skill.

If you ask ME why people hate the Grey Knights it's simple: Because they get the coolest guns, the coolest toys, and the coolest armor, as shown in this picture here. Everyone else in the Imperium of Man WISHES they could be like the Grey Knights. :)

Grey Knights are what made me get into 40k. Grey Knights Omnibus made me fall in love with the franchise. Their struggle is one that polarizes beautifully.

I should really get on with the shooty boffer I've planned out to use for a 40K LARP. 1980s style nemesis force halberd built around a fully automatic NERF gun, coming up once I get around to it.

How's the armors mobility?

:iconcolin-midwest:
Colin-Midwest Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's pretty mobile now that it's a bunch of particles burned up in the atmosphere.

I'm joking.

Or maybe I'm not.

Anyway - I can stride, and I can jab, swing, or block/parry with a halberd or sword pretty easily. I cannot run (or even jog), bring my hands to my face (I can barely get the helmet on by myself), or quickly regain my footing (continuous striking would be awkward). I impose in a general direction with a long devastating reach - a little like the actual Terminators. :P

wonder how long it takes to suit up...and get out of it. I have the feeling bathroom breaks require some planning in that armor.

This has to be one of the most accurate, to-scale, and realistic 40K outfit I've ever seen. And that in itself is incredible.

Kudos, good sir. Fantastic work.

I've seen many homemade suits like this one on the internet but -honestly- I've not even seen anything close to as realistic-looking as this, not even amongst the ones used by GW and their buiessniess partners. Frankly, I first thought this was photoshopped -even your head looks like that of an astartes (positively meant).
