Visit the Obscurus Crusade forum to learn about the build:
Follow my cosplaying here:
I scratchbuilt this Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine Blood Angel Tactical Sergeant, 7th company, 9th squad, costume as a fan. Improved version.
About 400 hours in making, spread over 10 months. The current weight is 25 kg.
Hight: About 215 cm/7' (I am about 183 cm/6' without armor). (To be able to move around easier and be able to use my own hands, the size is a compromize between proper SM size and a normal human.)
Method: Pepakura (foam+hot glue) and some modifications to make it look more like the miniatures. And some aluminum rods, and screws and electronics.
Cost of materials: At the present about 2500€.
Eyes built from modified Glospex: http://www.goglospex.com/standard/
Motion sounds comes from a Mega Stomp Panic from: http://www.thinkgeek.com
Getting dressed takes about 15 minutes, and requires a servitor.
