Finishing: Details and Final Touches and 'Seal of Approval' Deal

So we're almost finished our Chainsword, now we're just adding last minute details to it and we'll be ready for its first time showing in public at Tolworth 1st Founding's 'Mayhem' Tournament this weekend.
As mentioned we’ve added yellow and black danger stripes, and started on the painted on (rather than embossed Blood Drop) scrolling, which we’ll be finishing off today/tomorrow.
Scroll-work from the template.

All sprayed! we have to paint the detail in afterwards by hand, which is why the outline looks slightly odd.

We’re also coloured the activation stud, and done the Seals.

All the makings for a Hammer and Forge Seal.

The Seals themselves are plastic/clay with an imprint - Wax itself is far too fragile to use, and this actually looks more realistic!

The basic seal. Scroll works changes from piece to piece, as can the imprint on top as we personalise them.

The paper is specifically treated in the workshop to get the right look.

And here's the finished article.

We will eventually be selling personalised and bespoke Sci-fi Wax Seals as seen above, however you can get your own first and for free as part of our ‘Seal of Approval’ deal. The first five orders during/after this coming weekend (13th April) will come with a bespoke seal free with the order, so get on to us at Hammer and Forge via Dominicbarry.eng@gmail.com with your replica orders to get yours.


  1. Absolutely brilliant! Those purity seals look fantastically realistic, and I LOVE the text - very very authentic!
