    Agreed! How did you wrap the camp foam around the PVC pipe and or Fiberglass rod? and what type of core did you use?

    These are some of the best "boffer" weapons I have ever seen!

    The core type used is listed in the description. I used a layering method to cover the core, and made a cutout for the core on the center layer.

    I like the tonfa.

    I agree, that is a weapon I would be willing to use in battle.
     
  14. Ufnar Kargaroth

    Ufnar Kargaroth Orc Warrior/Hunter Transferred Character Myths & Legends

    Yeah, we had to throw that back on the planning table... Torrin didn't secure the handle well. I swung at him with my battleaxe, he blocked, and the handle ripped right off... However, it was a great learning experience, and next time it will be much better :)

    That is really cool Sepherus! Great job. With all the difficulty trying to find arm bracers with the right measurements, I am almost leaning on making my own!
     
  19. Ufnar Kargaroth

    Ufnar Kargaroth Orc Warrior/Hunter Transferred Character Myths & Legends

    If your talking leather, I HIGHLY recommend it! Not only can you ensure a good fit, but you can tool it to make it 100% Graycor original!!!
     
    DraZuul Barra Giveth praise for this remark!
  20. Graycor Gallowmist

    Graycor Gallowmist Human Ranger Myths & Legends Lifetime Award

    Yes, full thicker leather is what I am looking to make. Gorg just received a cheaper pair this week. I am using them as a reference to compare and measure the size I will need.

    Very nice indeed. You should mass produce and bring some of these to Ganda la Har!

    Beautiful craftsmanship on this one, and of course, I adore the tree design along the bottom.

    You can use hockey tape instead of duct tape and then paint the hockey tape to a desired color.

    These are me and my wifes first ever latex set ups with a twine wrapped handle

    A Greek Style Shield

    only got a bit more of a tape job and some foam on the rope for safe wrapping of the weapon but this is the second version of the flail
     
  35. Ufnar Kargaroth

    Ufnar Kargaroth Orc Warrior/Hunter Transferred Character Myths & Legends

    Flail looks good, but I think you should use thicker rope. At least 1/4" and at triple strand braid. If that were to wrap around a latex blade, there is a very good chance it would cut into the foam.
     
    Brathnik Ohmsford Giveth praise for this remark!
  36. it actually is triple braided twine even though it doesnt really look it it is over 1/4 inch think i just got a bad angle on the picture but im going to put foam on them that will prevent it from wrapping around weapons and people
     
  37. Ufnar Kargaroth

    Ufnar Kargaroth Orc Warrior/Hunter Transferred Character Myths & Legends

    No no no... Lol I meant each strand should be 1/4" rope...
     
  38. ohhhhhhh okay thats what you meant haha i thought you meant 1/4 in total i was gonna say mine is about 1/2 in total size
     
  39. Drazi Ohmsford

    I wonder if someone could craft a bat'leth... would be cool to see someone use it on the field. Possibly an Orc weapon? :3
     
  40. ahhh drazi i think i may be able to work on a bat'leth!
