Covenant weapons that are SO much better than human ones.
About this creation
Well, to me, weapons are just as cool in the Halo series as any of the vehicles in the game. I have made all of the weapons I could have made, but I'm starting off with the Covenant because their weapons are the coolest.
This here is a plasma rifle. This set, obviously, does not represent the plasma pistol because I'm already getting them from Brickarms. All of the weapons that I'm thinking about getting from Brickforge or Brickarms are not recreated here, so don't be too anxious. Back to the rifle, I usually use the male/female 2x1 plate clickies, but here I'm trying to get to scale.
This here is my Gravity Hammer, which came out well. I think that the pirate sword is way better than the common ax blade everyone uses, because it actually is long enough to look to scale with the hammer part. Remember, instructions are at the bottom of the page if you have LDD, and if you for some reason don't, I can email them to you.
Here's a spiker...without the spikes! I was planning on using Brickarms knives or Brickarms gunblades, so I left these parts blank in case I ever bought these.
Here's the plasma cannon, which I thought was a little blocky but came out really nice, especially the shield part. Genius. IMO.
Here's my Fuel Rod Cannon, and that 1x1 cylinder is supposed to go onto the wheel axle, but LDD just would NOT let me do that. *Curses to myself* Anyway, if it was on there, I have seen the cannon in person and it looks great.
Here's my carbine, which I'm probably the least happy about in this whole set. It's too long and too blocky and studded to ever become a smooth Covvie carbine. Maybe I'll go with the minifig arm technique, but I hate that one. It'll be back to the drawing board for this one.
Here's a weapon in Halo Reach which I forget the name of at the moment. It's orange, smooth and textured, and actually pretty powerful. Mine is too smooth on the top, but I got the shape right.
Here's my beam rifle, a huge success for me because it doesn't involve any folding. Simple and efficient, but rather large. BTW, I am not running the full names of the weapons because it's pointless.
Here's another weapon in Reach which is way bigger than its in-game counterpart, but still has the right shape, and the great texture in the gun barrel. It's on Halopedia, but I forget the name (again).
Here's the weapon in Reach that had everyone talking about it, but I STILL can't remember the name of this one, either. However, as good as a weapon as it was, it's even better in my version. I took a 2x2 round plate, turned it on its axis, and placed the 1x1 and 2x1 bricks on top of it to give it great texture and the perfect size for the disk.
Here's the last hand-held weapon for the Covvies, the only one that I can remember from Reach as the plasma repeater. Sort of looks like a stretched out plasma rifle that fires faster, so I did the same: I stretched out my plasma rifle. Perfect.
Here's the last of my Covvie arsenal, the grenades in the game. Incendiaries and spike grenades did the trick for me, and it shouldn't be too hard to figure out how to build them.
Hoped you like 'em! I put my efforts into this one, and I'm proud. Up next: Forunners!
