Dawnguard War Axe by DoubleZeroFX Dawnguard War Axe by DoubleZeroFX
Finished a pair of Dawnguard War Axes over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. This was a beast of a project. Don't let any item from Skyrim fool you - they will all kick your ass in one way or another. What began as an MDF and sintra master build was molded, re-molded due to a mold failure, and finally cast in a variety of resins and foam. For as much work that went into it, it was a surprisingly quick kit build in the end. All the pieces come out of the mold very cleanly, requiring very little clean up before paint and assembly.

Perspective is as play here, with the axe being behind the helmet, reducing its size. Additionally, all the weapons in-game are a lot larger than they really should be so they can be seen better in 3rd person POV. As such, all my props are scaled to an appropriate happy medium between game scale and how they "feel" when brought into the real world. If this were to be true game scale, it would feel way too large. Trust me, scale is very important to me and I spend a lot of time considering how large it needs to be, scaling it to my body, and comparing it to other items I've built.

True, a lot of the weapons in Skyrim are oversized, but I don't think this is just to display them, look at the steel sword, if scaled down it's already small grip would be unusable, and the Daedric swords huge grip makes sense for the size of the Dremora.
..The size of the weapons in game, especially the weights of them, one has to wonder, would they be any use in the battle field? probably not, but they are still neat to display.. a friend of mine has a buster sword, that thing is rediculously huge xD

Still, love your work, it's amazing -'J

Oh my gosh and you made a helmet too ... :faint: I'm running out of words to describe how well you can create these props!
Are you sure that's not real metal? I mean, I know you made it, but it looks so real!
