    I made him with Tamaya 2 part putty, and the "quick type" Tamaya putty. The base figure is the Sigma 6 strike duke. THe head is from a red Halo 2 Spartan figure. The base is made from a piece of plywood, Bar sand and concrete mix pebbles. Weapons are currently being molded and cast. (also bought the covenant sword from gamestop, and the scaled battle riffle) I just need to get some touch ups, black wash, silver wash, and over coat him and he'll be done.
    Hope you like.

    Sweet. Ever since I a saw his, I've been wanting to make one too. Nice work on the paint job. If I do make one, I might base the paintjob off of my Halo 2 Spartan that I use :D . Keep up the good work :thumb .

    Same here I bought duke and the grenadier so I can make my Spartan and Helghast. No shame in copying someones great work and you did a great job your self, I wish I could find a helmet for mine though. Hey would you consider making a cast for me?

    That would honestly be great if someone could cast it and sell copies of it. It would make it easier, and possibly cheaper for people who want to do something like this. Especially since I've only ever seen a Halo figure at Hot-Topic, and it wasn't exactly cheap, lol.

    Holy wow! You're coming really, REALLY close to my sculpt there! If I may suggest, the top of the visor/helmet needs to be a tad bit thicker? Overall tho, great work!

    Thanks! Well I printed pics from your website and used them to do my own. I made some differences according to the toy I had as well. As for the helmet, I just didn't want to do that (nothing against your beautiful job)-but I thought it looked too cartooney. Just the big forehead thing.

    well I am not good at descriptions, but here goes. Its a two part putty. You take the white putty and mix it with the green putty til it is a uniform color. THen you put it on your piece, or sculpt a new one. To smooth it out, dap your finger in water and rub gently. Let it set about a half hour then you can sculpt it with ease, or cut it down to size. You can sculpt it when its first mixed but its a pain in the ass. The blue original mix takes 24 hours for a full cure. The other mix, green box, tan mix color, is called tamaya putty "quick type". It just dries faster and harder.
    THen there is the tamaya "basic type". It comes in a tube, basically meant for patching holes, or accidental cuts/gashes in your sculpt.

    YOu can get all of here on the interenet, I get it at 2 of my local hobby shops. I am a pal of the guys who own them, so they special order a case for me when I need it. The "quick type" is a little harder to come by. The putties retail for $7.00, and the basic type about $4.00.

    I have used that and plumbers epoxy putty found at home depot. The difference with them is that they get way too hard. The only way to sculpt them is with a dremel, or a hell of alot of elbow grease. The tamaya putties are hobby types, soft enough to cut with an exacto, and sand with sanding paper. The auto and epoxy putties get like rock and are meant for patching holes in pipes or fenders.
