Halo 4 Didact Helmet Paintjob Progress by JohnsonArms Halo 4 Didact Helmet Paintjob Progress by JohnsonArms
Here's some progress on the Didact helmet made by my buddy Keith Muelas.  The first mold came out a bit rough, but I thought the casting from it would make a good candidate for painting practice.  It's actually coming out pretty nice, so I will make it available once it's done.  Let me know by message if you have any interest in it for your Halo trophy case! :)

Just an FYI, the eyes were not cut out, so it's intended as a display piece.  They CAN be cut out if needed, but I kinda like how they're coming along so it would be a shame to dremel his poor eyes out!  lol

Did you use a 3-D printer for the actual helmet?

It was indeed made with a 3D printer, but in multiple parts.  They had to be combined using resin to reinforce the shell and then all the ridges from the printing had to be sanded and filled.  It was a still a huge amount of work, but the final result really proves that the printing method will be a viable in the years to come :)

It looks better than mine *doesn't exist*
Haha, but really not bad at all

Also, I can't help but notice that Rampage in the background--any hints on where that might be going?

Thanks!   That's actually an older raider you see back there and it doesn't have a purpose just yet.  If you could see how many nerf blasters are just to the left of this photo you would probably be shocked, haha.   Last time I counted everything there were about 200+ in total :O

I was just wondering because I'm planning on turning my Rampage into an 'Arctic Camo' version here soon, and was wondering if I'd have competition~

I think you're safe! ;)   It sounds like a cool design, but I won't try to replicate that unless someone specifically commissions it.   I wish you luck with yours!

that would be pretty awesome of you. halo 4 was possibly one of my favorites out of the series so far. And the Didact was a fantastic villain ^_^
