Mini Halo Sniper Rifle Project

I really should have spent this weekend working on a cosplay for Emerald City Comic Con, but I ended up working on this little project. It's a mini Halo sniper rifle! I started by finding an image of it (and a rocket launcher for a future build) and printing it out on card stock.

The basic premise is cutting out the image, tracing the basic shape onto foam, then building it out in layers. I used 6mm foam as a base, 3mm foam for the accents, wooden dowels for the barrel, and a pen cap & tire valve cap for the sight.

Everything was primed and then painted with a gun metal acrylic airbrush paint.

Then some blue & copper accents along with black airbrushing to give it some depth and weathering and it's finished!

A look at the other side.

I really like how the sight turned out... :)

And the reason I made this? My friend made me a chibi Master Chief and I had to give him a weapon!

This was a fun weekend build which actually took way longer than I thought it would. But it gave me a bit of confidence to do some life size weapons as doing them in this scale felt way more difficult because of the small size. But still, all in all a really fun project.


  1. An interesting discussion may be worth comment. I’m sure that you can write read more about this topic, it will not be described as a taboo subject but typically everyone is insufficient to chat on such topics. To another. Cheers best muzzleloader scope

  2. Some even say they didn't have a certain brand or the type they preferred at home so they could not test the gun with that ammunition. We advise you never to force a Payne Galway type chamber brush down the barrel as this type of brush will eventually come apart and may also damage the gun.

  3. This is a truly good site post. Not too many people would actually, the way you just did. I am really impressed that there is so much information about this subject that have been uncovered and you’ve done your best, with so much class.

  5. Horst Wein, who has mentored more than 11,000 soccer coaches in 55 different countries around the world, believes that small sided games are the most essential element in developing youth soccer players. This comes from a man who knows a thing or two about this vital topic - his book "Developing Youth Football Players" is the official textbook of the Spanish Football Federation, and has also been adopted by the Football Federation of Australia, having sold more than 100,000 copies worldwide. Small sided games in Training Coaches should focus more on games rather than drills. buy twitch followers
