Mass Effect M8 Avenger Assault Rifle

It feels good to be able to build some stuff for myself again! The Daft Punk helmet was my last active commission for a little while, and for the next few months, I'll be concentrating on personal projects.... like this one.


I've been a huge Mass Effect fan for a while now, and with the release of the second game I knew I wanted to take a crack at building some of the weaponry from the ME universe. As a bit of a personal challenge to myself, I decided to construct this gun from as much of my existing materials as possible. That is to say, 95% of what you see here is scrap I had in my shop from other builds. In the end, the entire piece only cost me $28 in raw materials.

Note: if you email me and ask to buy this gun for $28, I will say yes; I will then take your money and mail you a box of wood shavings. You have been warned.

So, here's how it came together.

First off, as with everything I make, I drew up some blueprints. Those with a keen eye may notice that my illustrations don't match up 100% with the reference image above. This is because the M8 in the game renders and the M8 on the box art have several differences. My version above is an amalgamation of the two.



I had a huge honking sheet of 3/4" MDF left over from the Laser Rifle project; Onto this I sketched out the various parts. My plan was to have a central "spine" that all of the outer components would slide onto, forming the organic shape of the M8.


After trimming, parts that needed to be symmetrical were clamped together and sanded down along their edges to make certain they were as exact as I could get them.


Here's the rough parts laid out onto the center spine.


Next step was to glue and clamp these pieces together around thin strips of MDF that would serve as the center sections. This would eventually leave these pieces looking like a bunch of u-channel MDF chunks.


After drying


Additional details were added by either shaving down the existing blocks, or by adding 1/4" MDF pieces to the outside of the forms and taking away from those. The ability to remove whatever piece I was working on from the center spine was a HUGE help in shaping these.


The upper receiver was shaped mostly on a belt sander, but some detail work was done with a palm sander, and eventually a sanding block to refine the shape.


EVERY edge on this thing is beveled! this was all done by hand with a dremel tool. Because of the strange angles of a lot of the pieces, I couldn't use my table router.


For the lower barrel shroud, I used some scrap pieces of styrene and sintra formed around an MDF base. This is the interior - the repeating trapezoid shapes make sure the angles stay consistent.


I also used some more scrap styrene to vac-form the scope assembly that sits on top of the upper receiver. These were formed around MDF bucks, and the dome shape on the sides was made from vac-forming the end of an engraving tool handle cap.


I also busted out the lathe to take care of the scope and the small cylinders on the right side of the gun. The scope from laminated sheets of MDF, and the cylinder master was made an old banister support. Really.


For the "grip" on the scope, I found some leftover rubber material used to line the insides of toolbox drawers. I think this was part of another project, but my toolbox drawers are also without liner, so who knows?


The lower grip details needed to be slotted to receive the lower barrel shroud and lower barrel assembly. The latter was made from some PVC pipe bits I had in my "scrap plastic" tub.


A trigger was made out of a delrin bar, and a recoil spring salvaged from a dead RC car. This created the trigger assembly.


I decided I wanted to have the gun light up red in the sides and on the scope as it does in game. Additionally, to simulate "muzzle flash" I would add 3 LEDs to both barrels which would illuminate when the trigger is pulled. I added a small pushbutton switch at the front of the trigger to make the lights work, and for the battery compartment, I scrounged a double AAA cell holder from an old XM Radio remote control. This was countersunk into the handle.


THIS PIECE TOOK FOREVER! Oh man, the angles... It was very convenient to be able to shape pieces since I could remove them from the gun, but because nothing ever went back on exactly as it did before, a lot of times the alignment would change in test fitting, and I'd have to shave the edges down or move things around again. The result you see here - three pieces of styrene, took me almost an entire evening to get right.


After more beveling and shaping, this was the result!


Using a dremel tool, I started carving the panel lines.


The front "vents" were made by drilling holes at the top & bottom, then using a dremel tool and cutoff wheel to connect the dots. The material on the inside was cut away with an engraving bit.


The first coat of primer on MDF always looks ugly. This also marked my first expenditure - 2 cans of Krylon Ruddy Brown, nearly $5!


After one pass with sandpaper and a little more primer, you can see how much better the pieces look.


I used some spare LEDs I had left over from Big Daddy for the illumination in the center chamber. An old mobile from IKEA lent a few pieces of red translucent acrylic to tint the lights even further.


Additional details were added in styrene sheet.


For the details on the lower barrel shroud, I made a master piece out of ABS and styrene, then molded it and make 12 copies. The puck next to it is for the 4 cylinders on the right side of the gun.


Then the fun part. Primer, sanding, spot putty, repeat. About 4 passes and I had a pretty smooth piece.


I didn't want to go buy any perfboard, so I once again reached into the scrap plastic bin for more styrene. By drilling holes and routing the leads of the LEDs in a weird little maze, I was able to make some halfway decent little dead bug boards. I made 2 for the barrels, one for the center section, and another for the scope light.


A few more details needed to be added in styrene. The vents in the front grip aren't perfectly canon, but since this was a personal build I decided to add my own touch to it. Also, I cut the gap way too deep on that center section, and this was the best and fastest way to hide it! A great teacher of mine once said "Celebrate the Intersection. The more you try to hide something, the easier it is to see" Also... the small barrel there is an old ballpoint pen.


The battery cover was also made with some scrap styrene, by heating it and forming it to the shape of the handle. A styrene box on the inside keeps it locked in place.


Onto paint! I had scrounged some free Ace Hardware offbrand from an old job at my office, which served as the rather bright silver basecoat. To tone this down, I dusted it with Rustoleum hammered spraypaint, then Krylon clearcoat. The gunmetal color you see here is the result.


The upper front receiver, rear stock, grip, and front grip were all painted with Plasti-dip spray to give them texture and a rubbery feel. This was another expenditure... up to nearly $10 now. All parts not painted with silver or plasti-dip got satin or flat black, depending on their location.


The scope was finished off with a piece of PETG (left over from Big Daddy's viewports) pained black on the back to be as glossy as possible.


To control the electronics, I returned to the dead RC car and stole the switch from it. It even came with a nice plastic housing! This was placed in the scope mount. As you can see, i didn't have any shrink tubing handy... so the leads were isolated with hotglue. Horray cheap budget electronics!


Final assembly after paint


It looked good, but needed weathering. First though, I called up the shop that does all my vinyl - Signs Now Atlanta - and had them cut some stencils for me. I designed the decals for the M8 in illustrator, and the guys at Signs Now cut them in vinyl for me to use as templates. After sticking the vinyl to the piece and painting over with enamel paint, the mask was removed to show clean, crisp lettering! The nice part about this is what they're more permanent than vinyl decals, and I can control how "weathered" the paint will be.


After that, it was time to weather it. I spent some time recording the entire weathering process for those interested, and in the coming weeks I'll be editing that into a time-lapse video to show the overall technique I use. Don't expect magic though, mostly it just looks like this:


My initial pass was a bit heavy with the dirt - my favorite comment about it was "I don't think I'd trust the fate of the universe to someone who doesn't know how to clean their gun." This was a good point.


After pulling back the dirt and grime a bit though, I think the final result really shines. It looks well used, but also well cared for. The finished piece!

As always, thanks for reading!

That's... Just... Amazing...

istoleyourshiny said...

This is amazing :) This is one of your first pieces that I saw from beginning to end, and it was almost magical watching it unfold. You went above and beyond what I expected. I'm a big Mass Effect fan and you did it justice! Thanks a ton for sharing with us!

sketchguy3 said...

I love this. Never planned on playing Mass Effect but this makes me want to play

Wayne said...

An amazing build! I'm not familiar with Mass Effect, but this weapon kicks ass! You have such a talent and attention to detail. Looking forward to your next lineup of personal projects.

Jason said...

How much would you charge if someone requested a copy of this? tme.work-at-gmail-dotcom

h.mont31 said...

keeping all the pieces separate so you can work on them individually is brilliant. and using real screws to connect the outer parts to the inner spine is genius. then u always have access to the spine to drill holes and feed wiring. I really appreciate all the time and effort put into taking so many pictures and explaining everything step by step, its a great help for us beginners. another piece of incredible artwork
thanks man

Benjamin L. Harris said...

This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

Pol said...

epic job ;)

nolver said...

Unbelievable cool. Congratullations!

David said...

I am truly staggered by your craftsmanship..

Should you offer one for sale, I'd buy one of these in a heart beat. It's truly a work of art.

Salvatore said...

Mass produce these now and sell 100 of them to me at a premium. NOW! But seriously... I want one desperately. I'll give you my girlfriend. I'm not lying.

Beegzz said...

I love it. I will mention it and your blog in my own blog in the next day or so. It needs to be shared with the gaming world! Nicely done sir!

google flash said...

When are you going to have an exhibition in Atlanta?

Nick said...

So, can I paypal you the $28 for this?

herbalsummer said...

.................amazing...............

CB said...

Really great and amazing work.

noony said...

Awesome !! like all your work ;)

Natasha said...

How much do you want for one? :D
here's my email. autor3iv@gmail.com

Travis, Carra, River, and little bean Manley said...

"I don't think I'd trust the fate of the universe to someone who doesn't know how to clean their gun." LOL, that is great...and a good point.

Eric B said...

This prop is the best prop ever. Great job!

Rer said...

Totally awesome.

AndrewSipe said...

Stumbled across your blog and love the work you do. I've always appreciated the work and talent this type of art takes. And I love seeing a good step-by-step photo assembly of the work as it's being constructed.

I think your AER9(2) is my favorite build.

I do have a question... have you considered adding a sound module/speaker to your weapons to allow them to replay their unique in-game sound effects, when fired?

Ryan Matthew Hollingsworth said...

consider sharing your blue prints? very nice! Will i see this at dragon con???

Gascogne said...

Awesome work. o.O

omek said...

can i buy one ? even if it cost over 100$

Dolbex said...

Seriously, fantastic job. Congrats on the assembly

communionnimrod said...

Oh my god.
I'm a huuuuuuge Mass Effect fan, and am so bloody amazed by this replica. It is SO gorgeous.

I know this was a personal project, but...would you ever be interested in making more to sell? Because if so I would, as some others have said, buy one in a heartbeat.

Lux said...

I want one for meeeee!!!
what about $ 28+shipping to Brazil??

racer06 said...

So, how much would you sell one for? This is a serious inquiry, email me at udojrichter@gmail.com

Ben said...

So how much would it cost to make one for someone?

Ancient Flounder said...

This is honestly just amazing work you've done with this. Incredible stuff.

Major said...

Hey man,
Great project, as others have said. I'm not much of a craftsman so I'm wondering:

would it be feasible to take a mould of this gun and then mass produce plastic based copies of it?

Because if so, that would be awesome. All you'd need to do is paint them up (by the way, I ALWAYS love your paint work. IMO it's your best skill) and you'd have an army's worth of rifles.

michael said...

I would like to know the price of making another one of these. Would you please give me an estimate at sirmudge@gmail.com

Tyrion said...

That is just awesome.
Really man, negociate with Electronic Arts for the rights and create a compagny.
If not for the money, think about all the happiness you can bring to earth with these replicas ^^.
If you create more and are ready to make a profit, please let me known (thinautgagin@gmail.com) and I am not afraid of shipping cost to netherlands!
Anyway, congratulation again on your amazing work!

tishwad said...

i'll have sex with you for a year if you give me this gun.

Antony said...

You've made a fellow Mass Effect geek's day. Utterly amazing.

Cecil said...

Holy shit! Seriously, I'll buy one too if you can make more with the same level of detail as your original.

Price is not an issue, although if you let us order some then I wouldn't want the Loadcol and all that other text on it besides M8.

Lily Surette said...

I love how people are going nuts over the prospect of wanting one.

I myself am only wondering how on earth you haven't managed to score a job making props for a high-budget movie yet. You created this amazing piece of work out of scrap and pocket change in extra supplies, after all, and your other works are purely stunning.

Lars said...

Please let me know roughly how many hours you spent on this so I can make you an offer for another one.

White Devil said...

A fantastic display of art taking shape. At the beginning it looked so simple I was having delusions of being able to do this myself. I'm thinking no.

Jords said...

Wow.

Leslie said...

You sir, are a god amongst craftsmen. Bravo :) .. as Mass Effect junkie myself, I basically had a nerd-gasm watching how you assembled this beauty.

Don't ever sell it.. ever.. unless you need to desperately feed your family or something :)

Dylbot said...

I've just had an amazing tour through your back catalogue, all your work is amazing. Out of interest, how long does it take to make something like this, and what kind of materials do you use? I'd love to give it a go, but I'm a complete novice.

JLC said...

Wow, didnt know this guy is the same that made the Daft Punk helmet.
You sir are a genius.

Time by Jonathan Westphal said...

If there ever is a Mass Effect movie, we need you working on the props for it. Truly masterful work.

Socket said...

:( Makes me sad, because compared to this, my stuff is crap.

swtlady88 said...

this is literally the most amazing thing i have ever seen! you are a master!!

shauseur said...

I dreamt about doing this exact thing with the flak cannon from UT2K4. Just don't have the resources.

Excellent job!

SonofMacPhisto said...

That looks spectacular. I want to shake it, and see if the thermal clip falls out!

Now, an unsolicited request: the M-98 Widow should be next. :)

Dan S said...

What great stuff! I do a lot of work with Autistic/Aspie teenagers and young adults and they are always wanting to do game or anime inspired projects for costumes. I will be sure to have them look at your site.

The step by step guidance you illustrate is really helpful too. Thank you for sharing.

Don't know if you're into gears of war, but a torque bow or lancer rifle would be very cool.
Fantastic job here though.

I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite model on the Citadel.

Jeff Deuchler said...

Excellent work here. As always, your attention to detail and choice of project leave me stunned!

sanvegeta said...

As many of the previous commenters, I'd buy one if you would sell them. Of course not for 28$, we all know how art and skills are worth

Dominic said...

I don't know how you do what you do, but keep it up; you inspire me with every project you crank out. This is definitely one of those projects where I wish I could get my hands on a copy!

RazorThought said...

You could probably sell each of these for $160+ and still sell hundreds of them. Awesome, awesome work.

Quizzelbuck said...

I would love to get one of these. Its a masterpiece i would want to hang above my door. It is every bit as good as a weta works sword or costume piece from the movie sets. I would pay to have an unweathered version produced for my joker costume in about 6 months. Tell me, if you please, if you are selling or renting and how much you'd ask. I am serious.

ein_general is my y!ahoo address.

I would love one of these. Could you send me a cost estimate! dkittle at me.com
THANK YOU! This has to be one of the most amazing things ever!

Nicely done mate. If you'll excuse me I'm gonna go play now.

xyab said...

i'm looking at opening a gaming related bar and the would be fantastic for a display cabinet i want to know how much you want and how long it will take you and i will of course make sure it is know that you made the it and credit you for the privilege please contact on email provided

"Guppy" Honaker said...

Wow - your M8 (and the pics you took as you were developing/making it) is nothing short of amazing. I wish I had the talent and skills to envision something, and then actually build it.

dude thats awesome! what did you study to know all theese techniques?

Thomas H said...

Hey... Very nice job. This is the most awsome Model I have ever seen.
I'd also buy it in a heartbeat (if it wasnt for a crappy economy. hehe)
I have spent over 225 hours on ME1 and ME2 and I'm planning to spend at least 50 hours more to make a Perfect character/story line for when Mass Effect 3 comes out.
Anyway I salute you for you'r incredible Craftsmanship.
Do you think you'll be doing other Mass Effect models sometime?
My email: Dragulia89@gmail.com (just in case)
And for those who dont believe or just wants to see the fact that I have spent over 225 Hours (overall) on Mass Effect 1 and 2,

I have a question, the silver finishin on the tip of the gun that makes it look like it's been used, is also grim? like the black one you put on the silver parts?
trhanks amazing work!

I know alot of people have said this, but I would pay you commission for one of these. Email me at vanspoor@gmail.com!

TheBra2008 said...

what tool do you use for trimming the mdf plates?
because those cuts seems so smooth and perfectly a lined.

I trimmed mdf before with a electric jigsaw, but matching the lines is hard and time-taking.

good job by the way, a masterpiece like the others

Mostly I just use my bandsaw and various sanding tools. Above i detail how to get pieces identical by screwing them together and sanding them as one piece

Ah said...

How did you go about developing your blueprints? I was interested in making my own, but don't want to eyeball the dimensions. I was thinking of using Gildor's Unreal model viewer to import the game model to 3ds max and hopefully get all the relative dimensions from there.

John said...

I WANT IT.

OMG!!!! i WANT ONE! CAN YOU MAKE ME ONE ILL PAY YOU PLEASE... i want one for my room

guitardude92 said...

That. Is. Stunning!.

My friend, you are truly extremly skilled.
I honestly had a bit of a Geekgasm when i saw this work of art aha. Even moreso as i saw the work-in-progress.

I would more than happily pay for Parts/Time/Labour and more if i could get something as perfectly and beautifully crafted as that.

Now if there was a way to cut it down the middle to make two mirror sides and then use them as a master mold to crank out copies. Even if a mold copy did not have electronic components, I would still pay gladly for it.

MikuHatsuneFan10728 said...

If you make another of these, how much would you build and sell it to me for? Seriously, Its amazing how you can make something so amazing from wood and LEDs. Please contact me

Dude, just walk up to George Lucas's place, kick in the door, and stroll in, saying, "You don't know it yet, but I'm gonna design the props for your next movie!"

Seriously, your work is amazing, and the fact that you do it simply as a hobby is even more amazing. Thank you for sharing your work with us.

NatTexler said...

Hey there,

I showed this to my housemate and she's basically told me that if I don't contact you, asking how much it would cost to commission you to make one of these for her, she'd murder me in my sleep.

Please email me at texler.natalie@gmail.com with details. We will pay for both labour and materials and shipping. My housemate is a competition level cosplayer and both of us collect replicas of weaponry from games, movies and anime, as well as our extensive knife collection (hence why I'm concerned she might actually murder me!).

The gun would not be used for competition cosplay but it would be used for photo shoots and you would be completely credited.

Awaiting your reply,

Nat Texler.

thedjlink said...

Hi Mr. Krix,
I don't know if you actually read these or not but if you do I would like to know if there is anyway to get you to build one of these masterly crafted works for me. I would gladly pay you if need be, I would need it for a Gamestop midnight launch of mass effect 3 and I would then auction this masterpiece off for the childs play charity. If you are interested please contact me at Thedjlink@gmail.com I believe you are located in Atlanta if so I would even come meet you in person to pick this up as I am located in Birmingham AL.
Thanks,
Nick

Silverblade66 said...

Hey,

I already send an e-mail to you but I ask you here, too.
Can you send me the blueprints for the M8 Avenger?
It would be great if you send it to:

nfsracer@gmx.net

Thanks!

Sorry for my bad english...

Unknown said...

What an amazing piece of art.

Actually i would kill for one of those, i have worked wood a little, and i plan to get more serious about it. They killed the series with that ending, so now i have more time to spare LOL. Could you tell me what basic tools would i need to make something like that?

I know, tools are just 5%, the rest is skill, but without tools, it's a lot harder xD.

If you happen to read this, please, could you send me an eMail with some little recomendations?

Also, if you have any kind of blueprints at hand and want to share, i wont stop you LOL.

This is my eMail
you_cant_hide@hotmail.com

Keep up the good work!

John said...

There is no word I can think of that described how amazingly awesome that is.

I know you're probably sick of hearing this, but how much would it cost to buy one of these? I would spend well over 100 bucks for that masterpiece.

My email is- mresc2@gmail.com

Also if you're sharing the blueprints, I'd greatly appreciate it. =]

The Elitist said...

Incredible. Simply incredible.

Ανδρέας said...

Hi, first and foremost, this is truly brilliant work. I was stunned when I first saw this and it has inspired me to attempt it myself.

Would it be at all possible for you to tell me the measurements you used for the original cut out, or the "spine"? It would be a great help if you did

Ανδρέας said...

oh, and my email is aursrey@yahoo.com if you have the time to spare the information on the measurements. Thanks again

Martin said...

Great work!
Is it possible to get the blueprints on mail?

Sam Ball said...

Wow dude this looks awesome takes some dedication, now all you need to do is make a dicast model that unfolds like when a soldier takes it off his back the barrel enclosure opens and the stock extends and the hand folds out

Gabriel Thordahl-Jensen said...

Hey.

Wow, this is freaking cool.
As so many others is pointing out; do you consider selling these?

I would buy it. 100$, 200$, 300$ - name a price and I will buy it. You just have to send it to Denmark (but again, I would gladly pay the cost for that as well).

If you consider it, then please e-mail me at: gabrielthordahl@gmail.com

I am a huge fan of the ME series and an avid fan of the lore and overall ME universe. This is a work of art unparalleled. I wish to purchase one of these in a Cerberus paint scheme if possible. If so please email me at Hogansheros007@gmail.com. And maybe if your not too busy perhaps a replica of the M-96 Mattock in red.
