Remodeling my Viking Sword.

Post by Darius359au » 26 May 2017, 17:45

Decided to customise and remodel my Viking Sword - It's a pretty good reproduction but it's got some issues ,the biggest one is the distal taper ,(thickness along the lenght of the blade ,it's supposed to taper!),it starts at a bit over 5mm at the guard and tapers to 3.5mm at the end of the fuller BUT then it jumps back up to 4.3 from fuller to tip making it point heavy and slow, so it needs to be thinned down.,the shape of the point is also off so changing that aswell.

Other issues are basically cosmetic ,re-wrapped the grip ,going to add decoration to the scabbard and make a hanger/baldric for it!

Edit - All fixed now ,redone on Imgur and photobucket booted

Damn, only just looked at this thread and all the photos are not showing. Looks like you are over a limit of some type.

No it turns out bloody photo bucket have decided to block third party linking unless you pay for an $399 a year for an account https://www.reddit.com/r/rant/comments/ ... not_allow/

Here's their pricing options ,knowtice only the $400 a year plan gives you linking

Wankers have now fucked up forums everywhere and shot themselves in the foot ,people are going to remove thier images and find somewhere else to host them and photobucket will die!

Sounds like a good reason to swap to imgur to me
