The video game franchise Halo has taken the gaming world by storm. You can spice up your Master Chief costume with some wooden replicas of his weapons.
While your newly crafted weapons won't be quite as deadly as their digital counterparts (or deadly at all, in fact), if done correctly they will make quite an impact on your fellow Halo-ers.
Use your reference picture to freedraw or trace the outline of the weapon you're making onto the appropriate-sized wooden board.
Don your safety gloves and goggles. Secure the wood firmly into the band-saw's operational area, and carefully cut out the silhouette of the gun following your traced outline.
Sand the edges of your cut outline to accurately reflect the grips, handle and various aesthetics of your chosen weapon. Wipe off the sawdust.
Spray-paint the sanded silhouette to the color represented in the game, i.e. dark gray with black grips for the assault rifle and black for the battle rifle.
For detailed painting work, you'll want to use either a needle-tipped spray can or tape off the areas you don't want colored a certain way.
