Here's the newer Halo 3 Vader, as promised. I sculpted the helmet, chest box, and belt boxes with Aves. I painted him flat black, and dry brushed an extremely light coat of flat aluminum to enhance the metal look. I then painted the boots, gloves, and helmet semi-gloss black with a silver trim. The lights on the boxes are painted.
The lightsaber is a cut piece of clear red pvc and a bit of Aves to make a hilt. I also gave him boot lifts with Aves, or KISS boots as my friends call them.
Cape is cut and sealed cloth, glued to the chest under the removable chest armor.
Enjoy/critique, and thanks for looking! -Fitz
