Best Warhammer 40K Costume Ever

by Paul Strauss

I’ll be honest- I haven’t played Warhammer 40K myself, but I do know the soldiers in the game can be pretty bad-ass. Though no tiny game figurine or polygons on my computer screen could possibly compare to this:

I spotted this ginormous Warhammer 40K costume over on Dezilith’s DeviantArt page, and it is truly epic. It was made by Daniel Høgh (Boltshells) and Justina Šniukštaitė (Roses) over at Roses and Boltshells, who make custom props and cosplay accessories, and it truly shows off how amazingly skilled they are at their trade.

The costume is based on a Imperial Fists Terminator Captain, Tancred, but since I’m not too familiar with the game, I’ll just have to take their word for it. All I know is that I wouldn’t want to run into this guy in a dark alley – or in broad daylight for that matter.

It’s made from foam and can be walked in. It took them about 2 months and $2,000 (USD) of parts to build, and it looks like it was worth every penny. Its creators say there are still a few kinks to be worked out (like rivets coming off while walking), but fully expect to resolve these minor quirks.

Check out the full gallery over on Roses and Boltshell’s Facebook page. I wish I could click their “Like” button 1,000 times for this.

Update: Just found a video clip of this awesome costume in action. It’s even more amazing when it’s moving…
