    Default Mjolnir is born....

    Well here is the current status of my new rig. This could not have happened if it were not for my wife loving me so much to let me do it. So first of the name of the case is old norse and the actual name for the hammer carried by Thor. Translated over it means "mealer" for the amount of damage done in battle. It seemed suiting as also it means a lot to me as it carries on a little family heritage. I am putting this under work in progress as there are some pieces left to polish and some pieces left to make. This is the progress thus far. So far I have made the cable cover to hide all the wires, successfully hidden the wires, and got the parts painted a very odd shade(thanks to my friend Rusty who works in a auto body shop) There will be more left to do on this case but I wanted to start sharing with you now....

    Well now it all makes sense...... the Halo armor is called MJOLNIR armor. They must of made the refrence of the Master Chief being strong to Mjolnir meaning the strong hammer of Thor /geekrefrence

    Give the man a prize!!! [hands clapping] I joke though, but you are exactly right about that being what it is named after.

    Quote from http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Mjolnir:
    "It was designed by Dr. Catherine Halsey a civilian scientist in the employment of the UNSC Office of Naval Intelligence section three. The armor has undergone several incarnations during the many years of its development. The armor line is named for the mythical weapon Mjölnir, the hammer of the Æsir, weapon of Thor, the Norse god of lightning, thunder, wind, and rain. The origin for the word "Mjölnir" is unknown, though etymological speculation has provided theories for its literal translation. The Icelandic verbs mölva (to crush) and mala (to grind) have been suggested as possible translations. Another theory suggests that Mjolnir might be related to the Russian word молния (molniya) and the Welsh word mellt (both words being translated as "lightning"). This second theory parallels with the idea that Thor, being a god of thunder, therefore might have used lightning as his weapon.

    Dr. Halsey's decision to name what most would consider a defensive item after an offensive weapon tells much about her design philosophy for the project."

    So there you go noopypoop. Just a little Halo trivia for you
    Oh and sorry for the thread jack, Berticus
    Nice mod by the way. Hope it turns out awesome.
