For a while now I've been working on some ships, as you can see here. Apparently the lovely fellows over at Resin Addicts liked it so much that I got a few offers in to have them produce it, I also managed to get a possible 3d modelling commission out of it.

However, high quality 3d printing is expensive. Shapeways doesn't offer the quality I need for this project. This means I have to go elsewhere, which means the rates go up. In order to finance this I'm planning on making separate bits that could either be sold through Shapeways or whatever party wants to print/cast the models. I know companies such as Chapterhouse, MaxMini, Kromlech and so on are quite successful with their sales of bits which are compatible with other stuff in the market. The whole =I=munda craze has inspired me, and whilst I'm not that great a modeller/painter, I do want to offer my support in some way...

Here the first of many. It's still a WIP, more details need to be added to it. The blade is a separate part by the way.

I've updated the buzz saw a bit. And I've also started working on a shoulderpad.

Spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise, there will be a lot of feedback/bouncing, when the weapon hits its target. So I decided to go for two blades that spin in opposite directions, see below.

I've tried to make a double blade, and made four versions. At the moment I'm favouring C or D, thing is that it does make the weapon very wide, which will be a bit of a challenge to fix (counter weight, etc).

This is kinda where I need your feedback? Which of these four should I go for?

I want that dual blade available separately and at about 3cm in height. Can you do that for me? :D

I actually can do that for you! :D I'm planning on opening a store/account/whatever on Shapeways soon for this sort of thing. :)

By the way, which of the four dual blades?

If I print a dual blade, it will be as a single piece, you can't separate the two. Would that be a problem?

D would also be in one piece. What I can do however is to sell the single blade, you could then file it up a bit to make a double blade. :)

Small update:

The first wheels (3cm diameter and 1.5cm diameter) are available on Shapeways: LINK.

The entire device will be ready in the coming days. :)

Expect some Epic scaled bits in the coming weeks. I've got some architecture planned! :D
