New Conglomerate Light Assault by GoldDragon-13 New Conglomerate Light Assault by GoldDragon-13
Sorry about incorrect classification, I couldn't find a "Costume" one...

This was a costume I made based of the New Conglomerate's Light Assault class from Sony Online Entertainment's PlanetSide 2. Materials include cardboard, hardboard, fiberglass, bondo, acrylic paint, and nuts and bolts. For some of the "under fluff" I used military surplus goods and skateboarding pads.

The ribbons on the visible shoulder actually come from the original PlanetSide game and highlight what I was good at. I have been playing PlanetSide for almost 10 years now and look forward to playing the second go when it launches in November.

Displayed Merits are:
Emerald Veteran (My original server before the merge)
NC Strategic Soldier (The devs hit me with a big rock ;D)
Rifleman Titanium (I was a pretty good shot with that rifle...)
Air Calvary Pilot Titanium (I was a good pilot too.)

You're 'that guy' that could walk around a Convention and immediately gather an audience of fans.

Ha, I wish.  Sadly the crew that recognizes this isn't outspoken.  I tend to get more boos for playing NC than anything else lol.

Just haters. Represent the NC with pride since we made the best choice, for freedom. And capitalism. lol

But honestly the NC really are the best "good guys" of the three.

VNG and VVV for sure. I miss old PS so badly and hope they make it free to play soon! I'd love to get back to those battlefields instead of this PS-CoD wanna be we have now. Thanks for the compliments!

Amazing. Do you have a tutorial I could look at somewhere? I'm thinking about making myself a Heavy Assault set.

Personally, I'd go with my "best", (at least the one I perform the best with) the Combat Medic.

Btw, I wonder what LMG & Rocket Launcher you use the most? :)

Personally, I use the Gauss Rifle S because the 3 fire modes makes it pretty versatile :) Though I'm only using the Full Auto or the Burst-Fire Mode, depending on the average distance from my enemy.

I'm actually best with the Medic too, but the heavy is my secondary class. I just think the heavy armor would translate well as a real armor set.

I'm actually using the Reaper DMR. People have said that gun is not great because of the high recoil and 20 round mag, but with a reflex sight, foregrip and compensator, it pretty much shoots in a straight line. For long distance shots, I just switch it to semi auto and go full auto for medium to close range (just have to remember to be near cover to reload.) The thing hits like a truck, I consistently go toe to toe with heavies and win.

Well, I seem to use the Combat Medic & Infiltrator the most, but I would've balanced the usage more if the infiltrator's aiming didn't "wobble" around.

Though if you buy the Composite Armor for the Medic & Infiltrator, it would look like they were wearing Medium Armor at least.

Yeah I did that for the Medic. It looks nice.

Nanoweave armor is the best thing ever, especially for more squishy classes like the Medic and the Infiltrator. Putting a bunch of certs into armor and medic ability gives you a huge advantage in close quarters combat.

Well I will get the GR-22 soon because I tend to fight inside buildings anyway, & the GR-22 I said to be the best NC Close-Quarters Assault Rifle

I haven't used it myself, but I've heard really good things about it for close quarters, especially with a laser sight attached.

I recently bought that Rifle & I love it! I whooped the Terrans a** with it, Gruiella style! ): D

Even though I didn't have the Laser Sight yet.

I know that the HS/NV scope isn't that good, but for a CQC rifle like my GR-22, it have better benefits from it :) Especially if it's during the night.

Well I already have the NS-11A & don't know if I should get the GR-22 or not. I mean, I know that it's obviously better at Medium~Long range, but aren't sure if the GR-22's a better CQC Assault Rifle

I may get a Premium Membership to help me getting Cert points faster. plus that the 500 monthly SC would cover the cost for the Rifle itself :P

Just to check, do you know if the Carnage BR is any better? All I know that has less Fire Rate & Reload speed, but can attach both the Adv. Laser Sight & Forward Grip, but there could be other stuff that can't be shown in the game

Thanks! But no, no tutorial I can think of. I'm sure if you looked on youtube for a halo armor tutorial that would work. As for my approach, I went through the available images found a front and rear view of light assault. After that, I sketched both again to familiarize myself with it, then I "unfolded" the pieces I would make on paper turning them into a plane I could cut from cardboard. After making the cardboard base I built it up from there.

If you're interested in the sketches I could post them so you could see more of the process.
