UP CLOSE LOOK: Sedran Colonial Guard – ‘HALO: Nightfall’

Whether you’re a fan of HALO or not, there is a lot to enjoy in ‘HALO: Nightfall’.  Of particular interest for us is that the Sedran Colonial Guard force in the movie wear battle dress uniforms in PenCott-BadLands™ camouflage pattern.  So we did some research and made some screen-grabs to give you a closer look.

The Sedran Colonial Guard is the primary military force of the remote Outer Colony of Sedra and is led by Colonel Randall Aiken, a former elite SPARTAN-II super-soldier. Many soldiers in the Sedran Colonial Guard are well-motivated and dedicated to the defense of their homeworld – as Private First Class Talitha Macer explains at one point; “We’ve lived in a state of perpetual war, surrounded by enemies. We were born fighting.

The ‘HALO: Nightfall’ costume department created a distinctive look for the Sedran Colonial Guard troops by using BadLands™  Combat Patrol Uuniforms (CPUs) from Helikon-Tex, with a few cosmetic alterations.  For Colonel Aiken’s uniform, and also for his close protection team, they used BadLands™  CPU trousers from Helikon-Tex paired with BadLands™  ‘Einsatzkampfjacken’ (‘Operational Battle Jackets’) from Leo Koehler.  Besides some minor cosmetic changes, it also looks like the costume department ‘aged’ the uniforms with some sort of over-wash as well.
