So for the last few weeks I’ve been working on making and refurbishing some LARP weapons for myself and for some players at Fools and Heroes: Edinburgh branch. Due to FnH having different weapon size rules than other Larp’s I’ve been making myself a 36″ Sword & Hammer.
I’ve also followed my previous advice and am making during the summer… so only a slim chance of snow *grumbles* bloody scottish weather.
Anyhoo photo’s and an interesting flow chart on the history of the European sword, and some diagrams of sample sword guards & pommels:
Poleaxe – Axehead
Poleaxe – Hammerhead
Mike Refurbished Weapons – with scale kitty… thankyou tigger!
Poleaxe – Hammerhead completed with spud masher facing
Poleaxe – ‘reinforcing’ strap & spiked rivets added
Flail – Shafts & Balls ;P
Flail – Balls :P
Various sword blade tips
Various sword blades incomplete on a bulk ‘bat’
Hammer – head!
Hammer – inspired by my previous ‘sunder’ short hammer
Various guard designs for swords
Various pommel designs for swords
Interesting european sword development flowchart
Hope these amuse :)
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/
