So here are ‘some’ pictures of the new larp ‘props’ that i’ve made, along with some of my own and friends that i’ve ‘refurbished’. During this process, even though i have attended many of Skian Mhor’s contruction workshops, i’ve learned lots of new things about the processes around making these props simply by having to do them all from start to finish
This weapon was meant for a post apocalyptic setting…
…but specifically this weapon was design to be mid sized and light enough for smaller more petite larpers (I.e. Intro weapon female students at watt gamers)
Yes inspiration for this one came from the elder scrolls – morrowind. ‘Sunder’ was one of the main plot items crafted by the Dwemer Lord Kagrenac to forge the ‘God’ Lorkan. Anyhoo this weapon was an attempt to see how much detail I could cram onto a weapon, quite proud out how it came out
These were meant to have fur on the backs, however I messed the order of finishings and made it so the glue would no longer stick… Woops, but I’ll know better next time at least
Christmas present for a fellow larpers 1 year old child… Only slightly late!
…because why not!
Some thoughts for myself for the future:
- Spray Latexing in a shed when its snowing outside is COLD! Solution = either Heating or Summer
- Blade Beveling & Airbrushing work is a little patchy so needs more practice, maybe get some tips from Sean @ Skian Mhor
- Isoflex really really honks out the house! Solution = warm weather so you can vent to outside without freezing your ass off
Incidentally I was making some of these ‘props’ as an exercise in improving my skills (and not wasting some materials), not to keep them all so if your interested in getting any of the below at materials cost please drop me a line ;)
Who & Where? Me… sorry that doesn’t help! My name is Nick Brigg and i’m a gaming enthusiast in the Edinburgh area playing a variety of Wargames, Boardgames, Roleplay & LARPs on a regular basis. Currently I attend Edinburgh League of Gamers [elg] to get my weekly wargaming fix: http://elgamers.org/
What & Why? This blog is for me to share my enthusiam for the hobby, and in particular share my knowledge and experience of making wargames terrain and boards with the community. Hopefully improving the terrain which your playing on and making wargaming a prettier and more enjoyable experience.
