First, some news. I have determined that, at the rate I am going, the T-45d armor will not be finished by NDK, not unless I take the next month off and focus entirely on it. Given the lack of time, and lack of funding, I don't think that's truly an option. Instead, I will be focusing on the Mass Effect armor take two, which is coming along nicely. Expect more posts about that soon.
On that note, I wanted to announce a big endeavor I am planning as soon as the ME outfit is completed. I am going to attempt to create each of the Mass Effect single player weapons. Every. Single. One. At least the ones from 2 and 3, since the ones from 1 are all the same as those just with actual names. Many will be easy: human weapons are all simplistic compared to, say, Collector weapons. Many, many will be hard, and they may not be able to all be made out of the foam I use. We shall see.
This is where you come in, dear readers. Some of these weapons are going to be difficult, and many of them I only intend to create once. A few I will make two of, one for myself (for obvious reasons) and a second to satisfy the list. This list will be there for my benefit as well as yours. Should anyone be interested in acquiring one of these weapons, be they a one-off or one that I decide to add to the Shop, can contact me to put their name on the list. The one-offs will be first come, first served, so if you want it get on there quick. If you want your name on there, you must be willing to put half down on the one you want; each category will have a general price list with certain exceptions depending on difficulty/quality.
I have created a page under the "Builds" section, titled "Mass Effect Insanity". In it will be a list of each weapon, divided into categories. Those who want a certain one, contact me via the form or in the comments below. In a matter of fairness, if more than one person wants an item, I will go with the timestamp of the request that came first. If four or more people want the same item, I would be willing to replicate enough to give to all of them. Again, the half down still applies.
In other words, even if you see a name up, send a request anyway! Yours may be the one that pops it over the line!
I hope this doesn't sound too greedy (I am flat broke at the moment), but just what it is: a fun, grand, insane project I want to do. And dang it, I want to do it! :D Also, if anyone sees a weapon I'm missing, let me know immediately! I want to do all of them!
