Well, this may turn out interesting for me then. I'd want a natural control of the camera, but be able to protect it.
I've seen lots of people custom fabricate boxes from sheet metal.

Both my D3 and D7000 have taken incredible amount of beating with no issues. Yes I'm talking about direct hit left and right.
I would get a rain cover though. Saves time in cleaning.

I may try a rain cover. I might try Cassidy Sanders' paint case cover as well. Lenses will be covered for sure, and I'm hoping I don't get shot too much. I'll be using a 7D.
You will be shot a lot, trust me. I've been doing it for three years.
And I've been hit a lot in my camera, it works just fine. Something like a 7D is pretty rugged.
Just use a raincover or nothing at all.

Protip. Buy a shovel. Dig and Pile REPEAT until desired effect is achieved. Builds upper body and character. Bitches love upper body and character.

Take it from me, you absolutely don't need anything special for your camera body. i read in another thread you're using a 7D, which is what i shot with, so im speaking from experience.
my personal recommendation:
take your neckstrap off your camera, get a storm jacket for your lens, and keep a hand on your camera while you're shooting. thats what i did my entire photography career with paintball and it worked like a charm.
the problem with putting a big box or case around your camera is 2 fold. 1. you'll find it clumsy and im betting you'll miss quite a few shots. 2nd, and most importantly, you'd look fucking ridiculous.
