Tanith Cap Badge
« on: March 22, 2010, 12:11:00 AM »
So I'm trying to make some 'First and Only' cap badges, seeing as the Black Library ones are almost impossible to get and pretty expensive if you do see one.
Thankfully getting a nice image to work from is easy but there's one thing I'm unsure of.



After the fall of Tanith they snap off the two outer daggers. But does this mean the top of the handle and point of the daggers (the sticky out bits) or remove the whole thing. (which seems like it would be difficult considering how they are 'behind' the rest of the design.

I read somewhere GW produced some badges with the daggers already snapped that would answer the question but can't find a picture. Does anyone know?

Also I wanted to make the Verghastite axe-rake badge as all my favorite characters were Vervunhivers. What exactly is an axe-rake? Any idea what the badge should look like?

Thank you so much Finn, you rock! I couldn't find that image anywhere!

Is that yours or do you just have better google skills than me?

Kommissar you lucky sod! Where did you pick that up?

Its been a while since I read the books and I don't have access to them now, do you know what colour they are meant to be? I assume gold dulled down with soot but wanted to be sure.

That's so awesome. I don't think they make any of those now do they?
A friend came round the other day and brought his copy of the 'infantryman's uplifting primer' which I thought was pretty cool.
I love any object that is 'in world'!

Kommissar, I do hope you tend to keep a copy of the Departmento Munitorium book.  As you have to make sure all those busy body officers keep track of every round of ammo spent.
