Title: Omnisian axe
Post by: Captain Thomas on March 20, 2010, 04:54:00 PM
Does anyone here have pictures of the omnisian axe wielded by the techpriest engineseer figure?
I plan on building one sometime in the future, but I can't really find any good pictures of it. And while the drawing of one in the Rogue Trader rulebook is very cool, I'd rather make one like the engineseer is waving around.
It looks more like the unfortunate child of a toolbox and an axe rather than the sleek killing instrument in the RT book...

Hmm, maybe I should dig my own copy of DoW out of the pile and reinstall it... If I remember correctly you can get really close to the units...

Here's a quick sketch I did of the axe, what do you think?

I like it, needs more wires I think, but the basic idea is sound. Dosen't look like it would be to difficault to craft either, which is good.

It would be nice with some more wires hanging from it, but I want to build it as a larp weapon so it needs to have as few loose parts as possible.
Me and a friend of mine have been toying with the idea of starting a 40k larp and I figure a good way to start is by getting a proper costume done =)
I know he has some plans to make a larp chainsword, but I'm not sure how far he has come...

Get a big spanner on a stick and you're half-way there already =D
