Thread: Northwind - a Viking inspired saber

    Default Northwind - a Viking inspired saber

    Hi all.
    Today I present Northwind. I've really been wanting to do something like this for awhile.
    As you can see there's extensive etching, which I guess is becoming a theme with my sabers.
    I went with gold and green, and weathered aluminum of course.
    The feature I'm most excited about though, is a studded leather grip. There's a length of shroud material there, and the ( genuine ) leather is stretched over it, and bolted into the hilt.

    The specs:
    MHS parts
    PRIZM 4.0
    tri-cree R,G,Rb
    TCSS power level indicator
    custom saltwater etching thoughout, washed in with green and weathered, with gold accents here and there
    16mm white ring AV switch, black aux switch
    recharge port
    bass speaker

    Here goes, thank you for looking!























    Thanks again for looking.

    A couple of washes with green acrylic paint, cleaning off the excess.
    After that, weathering with aluminum black took it down a bit more.
