I know my question isn't strictly to do with Star Wars but the general topic could be applied to Star Wars as well. I'm hoping someone will be able to help with this. What's the best way to make body armour? I was playing the new Warhammer 40,000 game, Space Marine, and one of the characters in it is one I'd really like to cosplay somewhen. The only problem is that I have no idea how to do body armour. Here's a full body shot so you can see an overall view of the armour: [image=http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110622041248/spacemarine/images/a/ac/2nd-lieutenant-mira_0.png] Here's a close up of her upper half so you can see the details on the chest armour better: [image=http://images.wikia.com/spacemarine/images/f/f5/Miraprofile.png] Weight isn't really an issue if it makes it look better, but then I wouldn't want to wear something that weighs more than I do. Any tips on making guns would be good, though I'll probably end up buying a Nerf gun or something and painting that.
