You can also look into those punk clothing spikes, I've got 3 on my gauntlet for "darts".

I got the #2 spike from this etsy seller: https://www.etsy.com/listing/975079595/20pcs-bullet-punk-spikesleather-crafts
I may have a few more sitting around if I can find them and send them your way


That's a really good idea about the spikes!!! Do you think that arrow heads might work as well?
My gauntlets / vambraces are going to be similar to ursa's and the rest of clan wren.

I bet you can handle scratch-building and adding platforms and housings for your gauntlet weapons - admittedly, a classic Boba wrist rocket might be worth getting a quality resin cast but you could give it a go while you wait for it to ship. Best case, two wrist rockets, worst case, some experience gained.

But other things you can put together with Sintra sheet and a raid on the plumbing and tool aisles at the hardware store:
flamethrower - rectangular Sintra tube and some air hose or plumbing fittings. 
Wrist darts - sports ball inflators pushed through holes drilled in the platform.
generic Zappers - pocket air blowers (check Menard's or similar) with some sort of shroud to tie them to the gauntlets.
Knee darts - air hose connectors again, you could heat them and push&twist them into the blocks on the side of your knees if it's Sintra, (drill a pilot hole just a bit smaller than the threaded part). they come in steel, brass or aluminum in a few sizes, so variety.


Thank you. That's a lot of great advice!! I will definitely keep it in mind.

If you want to mimic the gauntlet darts - my personal opinion is that plastic real life dart tips are the way to go as they are easy to find and super cheap. That's what I used for mine and this is how they look!

arrow and dart heads would work too, iíve seen them done on multiple approved kits.

You should think about what overall aesthetics you are going for with your weapons platform (sleek and streamlined, bulky and intimidating, minimalist, etc), and going with one that works well for your gauntlet.

I was thinking of doing more sleek gauntlets.
