Ok, who has kicked more alien butt in the past few years than anyone else out there? That’s right folks……Halos Master Chief/ Spartan. I had just started this figure when this contest was announced so I figured I’d enter. This figure started out as a Halo 2 Steel Spartan that I was going to simply repaint into a Master Chief since the Chief is hard to find and they cost too much to buy online. Well, when I decided to enter the contest I thought that a repaint wasn’t enough since this is a CUSTOM contest. Sooo…..I decided to make an unmasked Spartan…….a unmasked female Spartan. I was thinking that it would be possible for the Spartan armor to be a unisex armor and after watching The Codex, I was right.
The figure is a Steel Spartan that has been completely repainted. The neck has been removed with the torso dremeled out. The collar at the base of the neck is from a ML1 Iron-Man fig. The neck is from a Cyber Unit Spawn figure that was trimmed and apoxied in place. The head is from a Lora Croft Tomb Raider 2 figure. The face mask was sculpted using apoxie sculpt. I decided that I wanted better hand movement, so I replaced the original hands with those from a ML Bishop figure. The backpack is from a SW Republic Commando figure. The gun is from the Commando Spawn figure that has been modded with the grip, trigger, and trigger guard from the ML Bishop rifle. The left ear piece is from a SOTA Cammy figure with the lense removed. The right ear piece is from a Commando Spawn. The right eye is a sword hilt from the Spawn Locust figure. The helmet has been dremeled out to fit over the head, and I have added a harness on the left hip to support the helmet when not in use. The decals are from the Warhammer 40k transfer sheets. I have also added other pouches and bits from other lines.
The base for the figure was also custom made just for this figure.
Hope everyone enjoys and good luck to the other contest entries.
