View Full Version : High Exemplar Kreoss cosplay project.

10-15-2015, 09:25 PM

I've done some cosplay armors. Last year I made Space Wolf Marine power armour from WH40k and this year I made custom Spartan from Halo Reach. Now it's finally time to make something I've been planning over couple years; Warmachine cosplay. Choosing character or subject was tough call. Dawnguard Sentinel, Stormblade, Man-O-War, Reciprocator or Eradicator... All those are challenging ones but not impossible for me. But I decided to choose my favourite character in the game High Exemplar Kreoss!
I may not have right to do that, here's so many awesome looking, like the one who is going to do IronMother Directrix. So I have no right, no honour or glory. You can blame me, you can judge me or just say strickly that this sucks and it's gonna be total crap. I'm still gonna do this

Before I show how my work goes I say couple things. I love bulky armor, so I decided to make my Kreoss cosplay a bulkier than art or miniature shows. I make some small changes with details for how I like more.

Two days passed with planning but here's first gauntlet do far, tooked me 4 hours to build it how far it is. I hope I'm able to build both gauntlets in this weekend. I know this is gonna look epic...or actually prime ;D

Working with torso armor. It's more challengin than I thought.

Especially since most Protectorate heavy armor requires shoulders that extend on struts away from the torso. Condensing the chest to fit a human while still looking correct is hard.

Thank you very much!
I'm using eva-foam, it's cheap and sooo easy to use. Armor builders best material.

Shoulders attached and works nice..... well.... it supposed to be Kreoss ut looks like it's becoming Over-Epic-Kreoss with some mixture of Exemplar Bastion....

Some testing, how I'm able to move arms. Not much left to build and then there's painting to be done.

Dude, you're doing a great job. Don't let the voices in your head tell you otherwise.

08-24-2016, 06:23 PM
Unless the voice in your head is Menoth, in which case tell him I said hi.


08-27-2016, 10:07 AM
Not much left to build!!! Shoes and gloves and then painting... oh and some fabric stuff. But epic stuff is forming up, people!

Don't poke your eye out with that thing!

09-05-2016, 04:27 AM
Tracon 2016 is over and it was a blast!
You should have seen the faces when Kreoss, Feora and Vladimir marched around con area. We had fun and personal surprise was how many finnish people recognice the characters.
I post more pics when I get from our famous photographer.

Here's small sample.
About the colour. I do not like original theme, so I chose the colours of how I painted my Menoth minies.

Great job! Love the touch of green, too.

09-06-2016, 06:07 AM
That looks great. Remeber if you see this guy at a con you need to fall over everytime he raises his staff :)

09-07-2016, 10:52 AM
Moar pics of warcasters of Finland! My girlfriend made Feora for and by herself. One of my dearest friend made Vladimir. Special note about 'Kelmi' his Vladimir cosplay is his first.
Kreoss is my 10th.
These pics taken by Jkameko valokuvaus.
