So I won the Dark Initiate V5 (before they were released) in a raffle. It came with V4 sound and CG. Not look after I got it I took out the inside to make my wife a DVA Manticore. So it has been sitting empty for a little while.

Today I decided to change that. The main thing I want crazy with about the hilt, besides the claws pointing at my hand, was the color. The solid black made it hard to see the details that makes this a nice looking saber. So I had an idea in my mind to work on.

I started by sanding off the black from the top and bottom claws, the gernade areas and the slant at the top of the emitter and the bottom of the pommel. I didn't want to just keep it in that state, I wanted to give it more character. So I made up a batch of my etching bath and throw it in for a swim. I'm very happy with how it turn out, gives it character I was looking for and texture.

I didn't want to put the CG back in because it just really isn't one if my favorite colors and besides it was just screaming for the dark side. I had another MB saber that had lite sound with BR and AS FOC so I stole the electronics from it and installed them into this baby.

Overall happy without it came out and not bad for half a days work.

It looks good, bro. Sometimes, sabers just need that personalized touch to make them look the way you want them to look. Smiley

Nice!  I love the texturing from the etching bath.  :-)  It transformed it from "new" to "well used" and certainly adds the character you were looking for!   Nicely done!

Good work there, TX. You've added more depth to the hilt with the silver showing
