Moderator Reply:  Liera, I checked over the posts, I don't see any evidence that someone modified them.  Note the tag on this post.  You'd see that if a Mod made a change.   :-)   It is most likely some kind of auto-correct issue.

That is absolutely bizarre. I don't even have an autocorrect. Not to mention I've been copying and pasting it directly from my writing program. -_-?

Yup. Looks nice also paired with a Dark Shock emitter as well =] I wanted sort of a clan inspired design with this one hence why I changed from red to a blue blade years ago Tongue

Looks good. I've always liked the clan sabers, that's one thing that's always drawn me to the Shock. And, you've made yours look even more like a clan saber, which is really cool. Smiley

Hello Everybody,

Sorry for the double post but I missed replying to a comment from MavRick (sorry  Embarrassed ) However it is Saturday and that means a new For Tyeth....ER Wait a moment! No it isn't a For Tyeth design today but a weapon designed by a fellow member. He drew a pencil sketch of his idea and I felt sorry that it was a 2D image:



I liked the idea so much that I decided to give it a quick run through Blender 3D to see what I could do...



Well....It sorta looked similar but didn't do DarthProdigal's design justice so I polished my model up and this is the finished version of DarthProdigal's  "Prodigal Halberd"







I think DarthProdigal came up with a fantastic design and I really enjoyed building it, so I have to give him big thanks for letting me "borrow" his idea and turn it into 3D. I hope you all like it as much as I do. So don't forget to show your appreciation to DarthP and send a few points in his direction!

Thanks as always for checking this out and for your suport. Till next time....

I have seen the new Asguard and Republic sabers and have given the due points. Very nice work my friend.  Grin
 A point for each doesn't seem like much but just know that some of us appreciate the time and effort that you put into your designs. MTFBWY!

Hi MavRick, sorrry I didn't see that you had commented till just now. I appreciate all the great feedback and kind comments you all send my way as it helps me improve and gives me new ideas etc to try out. And it is encouraging to know folks like what I design and model which keeps me going so thanks all of you.

belated point on it's way to you.

Look at how busy you've been! Pretty dang impressive overall. I really like that leather wrap! I hope it works out functionally well, in addition to looking great. I know you (like me) pride you lightsaber's combat functionality over sheer appearance. It's been a pleasure watching them evolve as you customize and personalize them little by little.

Interesting holster rig for the saberchucks that also functions for your staff when split. Good idea for convention going and such. Your need/desire for those shoulder pads is something I'd struggled with providing any ideas on for sure. Everything is either expensive or conflicts with other item zones needlessly. It's hard to find something that fills that particular gap in your armor setup.

Anyway, glad to see you got that wall mount done! It looks pretty dang good, and I'm sure you're pleased with it. It's ironic there is a bit of balance present between the blue and red blades as well. Like you're arguably more light aligned, but there is a bit of darkness in there too. You've for sure accomplished a pretty great overall outfit and armor setup since your first lightsaber(s) arrived. Well done good Sir. Needless to say, a point is on the way.
Thanks! So unfortunately it looks like the lightsabers aren't done being modified and tweaked. I forgot that I like to put a bit of tape on the bottom of the hilts where the pommel/coupler attaches to keep it from spinning loose (half the tape on the coupler/pommel and half on the hilt), so some of that tape will have to be on the leather. Not the biggest deal in the world, as the gaffer tape is meant not to leave residue when taken off. And also the end parts of the leather wrap (towards the emitters) pulled itself loose after some spinning. I think my fingers sort of pushed it up and wore out the adhesive. So my current solution, as I already tried more contact adhesive, is yet again another strip of gaffer tape around the top to hold it in place. This tape will also have to be removed every so often if it comes loose, but hopefully it should allow the leather wraps to do their job. I don't want to use super glue because then it would never be removable really.

Also, the white leather wrap has already started to get pretty dirty, I suppose it will become grey soon. Apparently my saber doesn't want to remain entirely on the light side.

You can see here the greying of the white leather, as well as the additional tape strips on either end of either leather wrap.



On a side note, I found a nice area in my community that I can use as a good backdrop for filming. Maybe I'll do a little test footage there.

Great picture. As a former plastic fold out blade enthusiast that's nostalgic as it gets. Good ole "training sabers" for younglings back in the day. Priceless.
