The bad part about the alien armor though is that you can't put any type of helmet on to cover the very top of the head. I do like the first thing you had though. Try some visor/hat combinations now.

yeah you can, put a visor on the re breather then put one of the small disks on his head, it works great

Not so OneEye, conventional helmets yes but as Halan pointed out there are some options. I've used that one too Halan but I find it looks a bit goofy, which might be good for some ideas but for this super soldier I want him to look fierce. There are many ideas but I like these.

Ok, this isn't the alien armour and it's not an enclosed helmet but it is head protection in an air environment. Why the air tanks then? They're combat drugs being pumped into his system to make him berserk and heighten reflexes and endurance, toughness etc.

Image

With this type of armour you can use flat style hats and visors without problems.

Image

What I like about this one is that I can fit a wild top knot type penis tail through the rear of the helmet where the 1x1 round stud is presently.

Image

Using the Alien Armour is even better, you can fill in all but the tiniest gap that hardly shows. If you use a dark grey or black head then it wont show up at all.

Image

The modified plate clip also allows for all sorts of attached stuff.

Image

See, hardly any gap at all.

Really liking version 1.3 of the human armor. I got to ask Warhead is that rifle using a modded rod at the end of the barrel or is it some on modded part?

Hey thanks, :D It's a handle from a Lego ping pong padle ( http://www.bricklink.com/search.asp?col ... itemID=979 ), I use the circle left over as a mine, BUT I plan to replace it with the black axle pin here ( http://www.bricklink.com/search.asp?col ... itemID=699 ) so all the Lego Snobs can like it too. :wink:

Ah a purest solution to a modded problem. I plan on building a few "grunts" in the next day or two* and this just helps add inspiration to the idea.

*(soon as order comes in : / )

I know what you mean, I got my order in this morning. The waiting is interminable though. Hopefully you'll be using said grunts in a battle, as we briefly discussed on Chat, I look forward to it.

Oh nice. I figured you'd find a solution. Usually I'm just not that clever.

Nice. the one with the backwards-facing visor looks like a space-samurai.
Also, I disagree with the whole Height=awesome thing. as examples, see:
http://www.badassoftheweek.com/funk.html
http://www.badassoftheweek.com/honeybadger.html
also, my brother (who just got out of the marine corps) told me that the short drill instructors were by far the meanest.

There are quite a few ideas being posted here.

I also think the added height might be a fun part of the "back story" of a hero character. Sort of the large, mingun weilding, hero type maybe?

As for the added height, I think it really makes the character seem more badass. (The honeybadger though is freakin boss). Taller people are easier to associate for super soldiers, elites, or heroes. It's just more cliche. Take a look at this analysis by Saber-Scorpion (Justin Stebbins).

Image

He uses a modified 2x1 grill plate as a "belt" for Master Chief to make him even taller.
