This was my first project for a prop-making class I'm taking (I'm in a special effects/makeup program at a trade school).  It's meant to be a weapon for an orc fighter, and is part of a whole set that's going to include armor, weapons, and a full costume and makeup.

The design was inspired by this post on deviantArt - http://shinyshoe.deviantart.com/art/orc-weapon-73175295 - which is based on the art of the Warhammer MMO (the rest of my orc isn't based on Warhammer orcs, but their weapon style is really cool Cheesy):


It's made of blue foam (extruded polystyrene) and styrene plastic, painted with spray paint and acrylics, and sealed with Krylon Crystal Clear.  

Here's a pic of it before paint:


And another photo of it on a black background, just for the hell of it:


At some point, I'd like to distress the blade more, make the edge more worn-looking.  I was just so jonesed about making it perfectly sharp that I didn't even think about chipping it up more until it was all painted.  A classmate also suggested adding a big ol' spike on the end of the handle, so I think I'll do that too.  

I'm pretty happy with it though, and it was really fun to get to use my faux-finishing skillz for pretty much the first time since I started the trade school program.

Comments and crits are appreciated, as always!  Thanks for looking. Smiley
