Whilst working or rather still re-working this old project i replaced the original broken bone shaft i made for it. I was going to simply make a straight wooden effect shaft but an artist colleague of mine who makes the most astounding minutures of a number of characters (specifically those from games characters) Mark Patraw AKA: kramwartap: Paper Mache Resource gallery & his website suggested that it may be better to keep the original design, the bone shaft. After some thought i decided he may be right. This IS a fantasy weapon after all so why lose the 'fantasy' look. So here is an update of the re-workd bone shaft.
Thanks Mark. I will post more on this project as it gets done folks.
