 Large preview image for Halo: Reach - Spartans


This is the multiplayer spartan from halo reach, it uses the model and textures from the retail release of the game, and includes multiple armor bodygroups


  • 4 Body type options: Female, Male, Female with robot arm, and Male with robot arm.
  • 21 Helmets (Every one in the game except for emile's)
  • Each helmet can have every attachment added (Even the ones that weren't originally available)
  • 8 Shoulder options
  • Option to have hood
  • 8 Chest options
  • 4 Grenade belt options
  • 4 Knee options
  • Option to show or not show glowing shield lights


  • includes IK Rig
  • uses original models and textures from retail Halo:reach
  • The 21 helmets are included as separate models, This is necessary because source is old and has a strict limit on how many textures you can have associated with one model.


  • If you'd like to know when I put out updates or new models, I have a tumblr blog for that.

  • Bungie - Making halo reach and these art assets.

Thanks for porting these Nextius, I've been having a lot of fun with these lately. As for the StarStranger's texture error, the UNSC decal .vmt is pointing to the wrong directory.

@Nextius Of course. Really looking forward to more updates. :D (Hope I didn't come across hostile). I'll be using these models more often, as SFM may replace my machinima endeavors. Any bugs I come across, I'll let you know. @Huggybear That's the solution? Mind sharing me how to fix it? Not really experienced to working with these files, haha.

@StarStranger Just a simple change on the unsc_decals.vmt will do it. Just open up the file in notepad then copy and paste this: "$basetexture" "models/nxtius/characters/reach/Spartans/decals_d" Should be good.

Hey, I updated this today, If you have any more problems please feel free to tell me about them, but as of now I think most of the bigger issues are taken care of.

Is it possible for you to port the models over to gmod? sorry for asking, I Really want them in gmod so i can make artwork of them :/

These are spectacular! Most definitely the best armor design in Halo's history. Will you be creating another batch with the other chests, shoulders, and the grenadier knee option? Don't get me wrong, these are a god-send as is, but I was just wondering if you planned on expanding.

Are you able to add finger posing to the rig script?

Whenever I uncompress the .rar file I only have the female model and helmets. I'm not sure what is wrong, but help would be appreciated.

I know the other armor is somewhere else I look myself in Reach's gamefiles but do you think you would be able to port the rest of the armor?

Is there a fix for finger posing? I'm fairly new so probably missing something but I've loaded the rig. Thanks in advance.

Not sure if I'm doing it wrong or I'm just dumb but. when I downloaded it and loaded up the models nothing showed it was just an invisible model :/
