    Hi!
    I've been thinking about the weapons of the Saurian Ancients. As the general aesthetics of the army is heavily inspired by pre-colombine cultures, i've tried to reflect that into the weapons of my army.
    I've done it by cutting little curved shapes in some parts of the weapons, making them look like they are some kind of stone/ceramic, like obsidian or jade (that will depend in how i paint it).
    I'll post some pictures of how are the blades of the weapons now very soon
    I hope you like it. It's not very complicated or time consuming, but it looks kind of cool :p

    I said there would be photos of this hehehe
    Here they are. I hope you like the idea, and it will probably look much better after painting them (when i will do that, i don't know, as i'm really pushed towards assembling and converting right now, to have an army ready for a campaign that i'm doing with some friends ;) )

    I wanted them to look like roughly carved stone, as if they were kind of ceramic blades made with slabs of obsidian, and the structure is reinforced by the metal ledge. The spikes are supposed to be also made of obsidian, like if they had shaped a one piece blade and then reinforced with metal the part they are hitting with.

    This one is my favorite! But the two with the spikes on the back removed look cool, too!

    This looks awesome. What are you using to "carve" them?

    Very nice work, they look great already and will look even better when painted. I look forward to it.

    What if you make molds and cast them? that way you don´t have to spend precious time on carving for your whole army. It´s your own creation, so I don´t think there´ll be any problem ;)

    I have thought about it, but i must say.... I suck casting thins or making molds :hilarious:
    Besides, i like them to look all differently carved, that way feels more realistic hehehe
