    I'd think a master chief style mando would be a heavy mando. Totally covered from head to toe with armor (ultra hot in the summer =D) just like Master Chief.

    Look at the way stormtrooper legs fit, they are made from 2 sections that overlap each other, as does most of the trooper armour. Leave enough room for movemnet of joints, of he will not be able to move.

    Mock up the armour using paper or card first, that way you will get the right size and look, after you have marked the template out onto the sintra, just cut them out and shape with a heat gun.

    For most of my armour i used this idea, and it has worked so far... good luck dude.

    Keep in mind that Halo armour is expensive.

    Sweet, so we got a Halo crossover working. This'll be really cool to see, can't wait!

    Are you going to use Halo weapons, or custom ones?

    If you aren't interested in purchasing any Halo armour, then there isn't too much of a need to put you in contact with my friend.

    Hey, just a suggestion, maybe you would want to put the keys/notches in the chest pieces also? Since the center chest piece has them, it might look cool.

    ok so this is now finished pretty much...justsome strpping and paint for the gauntys and its done ...but this is it so far:-



    he didnt have a flight suit at the time...but seen as ive upgraded to BDU's since then he's taking my old one lol also here is a better look at his greaves:-



    and here is one of him posed with a nice destroyed castle behind him hehe:-



    he just needs a basic trawl over now...neck seal, more realistic looking weapons and the greaves need straps rather than black electrical tape lol
