Here is a more recent WIP picture of the grunt costume for my son. I have since finished the costume by changing the mask to gold, and adding more detailing to the skin, as well as adding some weathering. I will upload those photos soon!
tis thing is looking really cool, i have been following from the beginning. i would just add more paint detail to the orange and that thing will win every costume contest within 100 miles of you. GREAT... job on the grunt eyes and face though, that is what really puts it together. are you doing a gun?
wow, this is really looking good... I thought it was a model of a Grunt until I read the description. That's even better, a costume for your son! All he needs now is a needler or a plasma pistol to go with those plasma grenades
something that would be really cool is if you could get two military smoke bombs in blue color and just run around with those. Or even better find someone who's great with visual effects like "fredview" on youtube and just install the glowy plasma effect to you.
