I might get me a Renegade in a couple months finally. I like the more unique look of it over the standard Flamberge saber. As Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z Abridged would say: Renegade for life! Tongue Will be my ultimate Sith weapon for sure and will definitely deserve a display of some kind. Not really a crossguard fan but definitely loving the Renegade more. We need some more pictures up Tongue

I have some up of the weathered one I picked up from DragonCon this past year...I think it is in the customization thread....I personally love it.  Although it is big and beefy this thing is my SIth Claymore!  What type of finish are you going to go for?  Basic black, LE, CE?

Probably LE just to have some character and hints of silver there. Might even see if US could send me the silver claws too ;o

I have one of these guys with basic sound and Red LED's on the way.  I can't wait to play around with it / do some modding - have a few ideas rolling around already.

Couple ideas I had for modding my soon-to-come Renegade:

1) to alter the blade itself - I don't have a link, but somewhere here on the saberforums another user used either a woodburner or soldering iron, and they used it to scar the blade up over the entire length, and it gave it kind of an "unstable" appearance.  The same user also got their hands on some Xmas icicle decorations that were about 6" long, and put those into the side emitters to make it look more flamelike - looked pretty good.  So Yeah I plan on stealing that idea.

2) To further the look of the "unstable blade" appearance I thought of something that may or may not work:  heating a needle and making holes in the blade near where it sits in the emitter - these holes would go in at an angle toward the emitter.  Then...getting some Fiber Optic cords the same size as the needle holes, and inserting a few in here and there to give the idea of the occasional sparks that fly out from the unstable blades.  Again...experimental idea.  I'll see how this works.

3) Probably going to sandblast certain parts of the hilt here and there, and then through some different coloring techniques make it a bit rough looking - closer to Kylo's very busted up/old saber.  Not totally, but a little.

4) Make a couple small holes here and there, and run wires externally from one hole to another - just to give it a bit more of a haphazard put together look.

Of course this is all assuming I have the time to sit down and go for it lol

Anyone else mod out their Renegades / Flamberges?

Got my Renegade LE last night.  And boy it's heavy.  Not sure I'll ever swing and spin it like the videos, but right now it's a LOT of fun to hold and to wave around.

I got it with a Blazing Red/Bane's Heart pulse main blade, and Adegan Silver + color filter discs for the side blades.  So far I've found 2 red discs per side blade is a pretty good match for Blazing Red, at least with 40" and 8" Ultraedge Heavy Grade blades.  I'll probably modify the Emerald settings so that the pulse is just 100%/80% Blazing Red as suggested and try to get the side blades to match that.  Then load up a Kylo Ren soundfont and it'd be good to go until I get the hankering for other colors.






It is MASSIVE.  And GLORIOUS.

It is GLORIOUS.  That's a fantastic saber.  I haven't wanted a crossguard hilt yet, but it is still very, very impressive.  Good for you getting one you really enjoy!  -1 congratulatory point coming atcha

Hum.  Got 2 of the LEE filters swatch booklets, paired up a single #106 cutout with a single US red filter disc per side blade, and now the side blades are less red-orange and more red-red, though not quite a perfect match.  But this is now something I definitely can live with.
