Long Sword bit for knights?

Post by larks » Mon Mar 25, 2019 3:30 pm

Anyone know a company that produces a medieval style long sword that can be substituted for a knights reaper chain sword? The only thing I found was the grey knight dredknight sword but it looks fat and silly tbh. I tried looking on some 3d printing sites but couldnt find any there.
sincerely,

Matt

Maybe old empire/Mordheim bits... I have recently sorted all of mine if you want to take a look at them for reference (or to trade - I don't need any remaining bits). Try Kromlech/Spell Crow/Scribor... might have something there...

I don't know of any off hand. You could try searching Shapeways to see what's out there.

Have you considered the sword from the Great Unclean one? granted, it would require a bit of conversion to work on a loyalist knight, but it IS a good size. When I did my Nurgle Knight conversion I considered using it, but decided on a more "infested" look.

OHHHH... Does he mean a big knight? I was thinking cavalry knights... silly...

Yeah, not a clue where you could get matching size stuff that wouldn't cost a fortune (in specific)... but have you thought about Asian toys... like the old giant ones (the mazinga-z stuff or some crazy Robotech/Voltron stuff)... probably also expensive though... Maybe something more contemporary like Gundam stuff (though I know zero about that).

In retrospect, it seems obvious that he meant a Giant, Robot Sword... lol

@MagickalMemories - I checked the 3d printing route but didnt see any .

@wsott1970 - that is something I didnt think about. I grab the dollar store monster trucks for conversion wheels on the cheap.. I should look and see if they have any big toy knights or something.. something to think about anyways.
sincerely,

Matt

The real answer may be to have them forged... It will get you exactly what you want... and while expensive it might only be 2.5-5 as expensive as what you find that kind of works anyway... and then it is a working (work) of art (and if you have to shiv somebody in game - lol).

My daughter works the forges but I don't think she is good enough for that (yet) - actually funny - my step-daughter (that is older) is a whitesmith (of sorts) but we don't talk much... You could always contact a true blacksmith (or even a person that only forges blades) or even a whitesmith (they do jewelry)... I have contemplated a whitesmith for imperial crowns (at proper scale) to put on my converted (larger) ghouls kings/queens... British Monarchy replicas in 28-30mm scale are sadly not as widely available as at other scales.
