All right! Looks like I've got the Halo bug again, so here's a nice, polished reference for one of my Halo OCs, Spartan McCloud.

I don't usually time myself, but I'd estimate this took about 14-15 hours of work.

Quick bio copied from my preview of Fireteam Indigo:

Spartan Reina McCloud began as a refugee from Miridem, the colony having been glassed by the Covenant when she was ten. She lived on Reach for several years, having been placed there by a refugee relocation program. Itching for payback against the Covenant, she signed on with the UNSC Marines on her eighteenth birthday. She graduated Marine Basic just days before the Covenant offensive on Reach, and her squad was deployed throughout the southern territories evacuating civilians. She fought alongside several ODST squads during this time, and developed a wanting to join their ranks (assuming of course, that she survived the current predicament).

Having far too many empty drop pods to fill following the loss of Reach, Reina's transfer to the ODSTs was approved. She fought briefly on Earth, and spent the next year on mop-up assignments with her squad. When the Spartan-IV program was announced, She was quick to volunteer, having grown up with the news reporting on the legendary Spartans as the ultimate instruments of justice against the Covenant. While many of her ODST squadmates were less than enthused by this decision, they did let her keep the helmet, and she's still got the ODST's emblem- a flaming skull superimposed on the silhouette of a SOEIV drop pod- tattooed on her right shoulder.

Armor is as follows:
Torso- Recruit (Modified to incorperate the more powerful thruster packs from the GEN-2 Mk-VI, alternate shield emitter)
Helmet- ODST
Shoulders- Air Assault/VERGE
Forearms- XV-27 Shifting (Modified)
Legs- ??? (Presently unnamed variant)

Spartan Reina McCloud is pretty obviously an adaption of my OC, Reina Cloude ([link]), but several years older, and at least a foot taller.

While I'm not a fan of Gen 2 entirely, You made this one look good. My only dislike would probably be the boot/shoe area :P.
