Cakes' Weapons (Repeating Blaster, Knife & Mace)
« on: Dec 11, 2015, 11:20 PM »
Alright so here are the weapons and ideas I had for my mando

Knife, still debating on if I want to add some greebles to the blade to make it more of a vibro blade.
It started as a piece of wood with the template cut out and the edges sanded down using an orbital sander.


I used a split piece of dowel to create the handle. The hilt is made of a piece of sintra heated and bent, this will be sandwiched in between the top of the blade and the handle so it won't get loose or slide off.

The handle will be wrapped in a brown suede cord and weathered.

Blaster design, The story is it's a modified DLT-19 with a larger segmented barrel for cooling, taken from the T21. Allows for longer sustained fire. Scope would be on the larger side to allow for a larger viewing area but with some zoom capability.


With the ban on blasters I may end up making a second melee weapon before I get to the blaster.
I've always had a thing for maces and I know that vibro maces existed in the universe with the Neimoidians and the gaffi stick has a mace on the end. Would one be acceptable?
This is sort of what I had in mind, a one handed mace.

The blade on the side would be on both sides and criss cross in the middle like a sort of like this
*
If the mace isn't doable I can always go with just a one handed vibro axe

Update:
Been awhile since updating. But i got the dlt all painted (apart from a few pieces that still need clear coat)



Buzzkill in the clan was kind enough to print me of a kd30 from tor prudii's files from here on the forum. I'll be adding a muzzle break for it as well

 
Edit July 9 2017:
Got the KD30 blaster done. Built a scope mount out of sintra, an old button and an ear bud

I've panted and given the blade a little weathering, not to much as it's equipment and should would probably be kept clean.
Pre weathering:


Post Weathering:


I also took another swing at the mace and put in a few details. Trying to decide on which blade style I like more.


EDIT Dec 21st:
Got the handle all wrapped up. Just need to add the pummel.

Thanks mate!
I figured out what to do for my pummel



I'll hopefully get time tomorrow to pick up piping for the mace.

Thanks guys!

I was using the cap to hold the knife up as I painted it. I was trying to figure out something that would fit it for the pommel as it's an odd shape and realized I could cut out the center and use it lol

Here:s a pic of a bit of detail i'll be adding:


I've come up with a few different design ideas for the blades of the mace and wanted some feedback as to which one feels more swarzy and not as medieval?
1. was my own idea
2. based off the BD-1 vibro axe
3. a mash of the 1st blade and the ones found on a gaffi stick
4. 1st blade with a penetrating spike

My vote is for 4, I like the spike and it would set the mace apart from the usual axeblade appearances. Three blades mounted in a triangular arrangement would be a very serviceable mace.

I just came in to say your knife is too good to be true, i can not belive it's made of wood! It really looks like pure metal, great work!

Model 3 for me.
Very menacing with a medieval feeling.

Thank you guys! Hoping the mace head turns out as well.

I'm stuck between the 3 and 4 myself. I like the spike on 4 but the overall design of 3.
I've tried to blend them  by bringing the 3rds angle down further to where the spike would be on 4 while still keeping the spike aggressive, like something that would pierce through a storm troops helmet XD.
Any thoughts?

The last one is the good one I think.

On a other way this one is very similar to your design and spiky enough  ;) !
