Master Chief - Desert Scheme by SgtHK Master Chief - Desert Scheme by SgtHK
Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 (Desert Scheme)

After 7 months of on-and-off work, he's finally done :)

Made with 3ds Max (+Vray), Mudbox, and Topogun.

Note: This is my own design of the Chief. Some differences from the original version may be noticeable.

Note to commentators: Thank you for all the comments, especially to those who critiqued. I have taken significant steps to improve the presentation of my model accordingly.

This is awesome man. At first I thought it was an action figure. I've thought about modelling it too but I had another idea about drawing it, so I used your model as reference!

why couldn't THIS have been chief's H4 design? honestly, it's not that much of a stretch, and it certainly looks more like chief than that......abomination, 343 decided to shove down our throats.

I know that this was posted over a year ago but I just wanted to point out that the SMG from halo, the M7, is caseless..

Other than that, I am AMAZED at how amazingly real this looks!

Thanks. I've only played Halo a few times so I didn't notice the caseless rounds. But thanks for the info :)

Shell casings? But those are Caseless SMGs.

okay, this has been eating me for a while; how do caseless guns work exactly? if they don't produce casings when fired, how is it they CAN fire the bullet at all?

i think my brain just melted from confusion overload.

It's actually rather simple, and caseless ammunition DOES exist: the experimental G11 Assault Rifle used such rounds.

Basically, instead of all the propellant being packed into a metal case, the propellant is packed into a shape (the G11 actually used square shaped propellant charges to improve ammo capacity; the bullets themselves were still round) and held together by a special adhesive. When the round is chambered and then fired, the propellant is burnt and consumed, along with the adhesive that holds it together, and the round is fired as per normal. Such ammunition is meant to decrease cost by removing the shell casing from the equation, as well as improving safety (as no hot shell casing can touch skin), and I guess it probably would've improved stealth capabilities as there'd be no shell casing hitting the floor to make noise. However, in the case of the G11, there were issues, such as jamming, and more seriously, cook-off (the propellant exploding spontaneously); because the rounds had no casing, they also had no insulation from heat inside the gun, and that meant there was a risk of the propellant exploding. In the case of the M7 SMG in HALO, the only issue it suffers from is jamming, which doesn't seem to be a serious enough or frequent enough issue for the weapon, otherwise the UNSC wouldn't have issued it to personnel, since the MA5B was replaced by the MA5C due to jamming issues and spring fatigue from its high rate of fire and large magazine.

Enough information?

i agree, it could use a bit more work, but i'd still prefer this to the 343 chief any day of the week. for some reason, 343 thought it was a good idea to fuse chief's halo 3 look, with his armor configs in halo: legends. and let me tell you from experience, amine armor style + rather realistic armor style= bad hybrid. because there's so many different cons going on throughout the design, it's hard to find any pros.

interesting. well, can't get any worse than 343-chief, that's for damn sure. i can let the other chief designs go, because they were at least halfway decent, or made for certain projects, but 343 fucked up big, and if they ever want to bring the fans back, they need to go back in time. redo old halo games, or make prequels. anything to save the current timeline from their destructive minds.
