Fan Made Ragnarok Diorama using Halo Mega Bloks

I came across a thread on a Halo Mega Bloks fan site that showed a Ragnaok diorama.

The following was made by “Scott ‘warmaster’ mckie“. From here, I’m going to let him use his own words as they were in the original thread.

Hi guys, i started this project for bloksfest2014. I never thought it would get to the size or quality that it turned out, its was massively liked at the show and won me first place in the diorama competition and won me a pelican set signed by mega themselves!

The build.
Time: 6 weeks
Weight: 45kg
Length: 5ft
Width: 2ft
Cost: around £100, £200+ inc figs.

So heres the start

Rag raw box

Rag raw foam

Rage fillover

I then added paint and details

This is a nicely done diorama using realistic element with Mega Bloks as well. Being a diorama builder myself, though it’s been some time, I can certainly appreciate the work and detail that went into this project.

So what do you folks think of this? Did you like the diorama? Do you like the mix of realistic and Mega Bloks? Would you have preferred it to be all realistic or all Mega Bloks?


The Halo Bulletin 6-5-14


Over the past few weeks, we’ve been talking about E3. You’re excited, we’re excited, and we can finally say that E3 2014 is less than five days away. Some members of the team are already in Los Angeles, and the majority will be flying down over the next two days to prepare for the Xbox Media Briefing on Monday morning. We know you’re hyped about next week, so in this week’s Bulletin, we’ll be breaking down everything you need to know, and where you need to be next week. Let’s get into it!

Halo @ E3 2014

Which reminds me – we’ve got a new Twitter handle.


Last week we retook the hill on the @Halo Twitter account. Those of you already dutifully following @HaloWaypoint were automatically brought on to our new sweeter, shorter handle. We have an extra eight letters to play with and with E3 next week – we think you might want them. If you’re not already following us, it’s a great time to start. We’ll be tweeting live from E3 2014 all next week, with behind the scenes pictures, videos, and more.

HFFL: You can expect I’ll be blogging and tweeting furiously as well during E3. Anything Halo related WILL be covered here on HFFL.

Halo Waypoint

Next week, we’ll have some E3-themed goodies and happenings here on Waypoint – be sure to swing by throughout the week to keep up with everything that’s going on from the show floor, including updates, photos and videos, and more. There won’t be a regular Halo Bulletin next week, and we’ll instead have live coverage from LA. Don’t miss it.

We know you’re pumped to learn more about what’s ahead for the Halo franchise, and we can’t wait to share the details with you. We’ll see you next week!

Halo and ASTRO Gaming Announce New Partnership 

HFFL: (as mentioned already here on the blog)

As you may have read earlier this morning, we announced a multi-year partnership with ASTRO Gaming! I can often be found wearing an ASTRO Gaming headset, and I’m wearing my ASTRO A38s as I type this. I often make my coworkers gape with awe at my ability to spin endlessly in my office chair without fear of becoming hopelessly tangled in wires. Halo and Astros go together like chocolate and peanut butter, so the fact that we’re partnering with them now to develop several new products: branded headsets, speaker tags, and more just feels… right.


I’m incredibly excited to see the products, excitement, and new awesomeness that comes from our new partnership, and will absolutely share more at our earliest convenience.

Halo: Spartan Assault Free on Xbox One

HFFL: (as mentioned already here on the blog)


Starting today, Halo: Spartan Assault is available for free on Games with Gold for Xbox One! For the month of June, Xbox Live Gold members can get the epic top-down, twin-stick shooter at no cost. Go get it!

Screenshot Spotlight: King of the Hill

Last week, we turned the spotlight on the King of the Hill. Take a gander at the following black and white screenshots, and maybe even find inspiration to make your own.

6-5-14 Screenshot spotlight

HFFL: I have just one that I really like from this Spotlight. It’s the “welcome to the UNSC” by deluca34 screenshot.

For your chance at being in the next spotlight, take a screenshot that features a Ghost and then tag it with “Ghost” and “Halo Waypoint,” and maybe, just maybe, yours will be featured in the next Halo Bulletin!

HFFL: Hmm, will THIS be the week I actually take some screenshots and submit them for the Spotlight??? The Ghost is a good subject to do this for.

And with that, this week’s Bulletin comes to a close. We’ll see you in just a few days at E3
Until next week,

HFFL: Hmm, not much NEW in the bulletin this week. Already had news of the Astro Gaming partnership and Spartan Assault being free for the One. Nothing really divulged for E3 other than times to tune in. And again, if you miss those, rest assured, I’ll be covering E3 Halo news extensively.
