Making the Bringer of Mayhem – progress on our replica weapon

Got some more work-in-progress images of the Bringer of Mayhem replica weapon to share. Work on the model has been continuing apace since the last update, with the top and front sections being the focus of attention. Here’s how it’s coming along…

Above: Updated from the previous, lower poly render (seen in the previous post), this newer 3D render has more texture and detail and gives a much better idea of how the finished model will look

Above: It took several hours to print, but here it is – the gun’s front section in its raw form. When completed, smoke will emit from the ‘mouth’ and a light will be positioned inside for maximum authenticity (and theatrical effect, of course)

Above: This top-down view reveals the intricate detailing of the gun’s upper section, which is more organic/alien and less immediately recognisable as a weapon than the more conventionally familiar shape of the Bringer of Mayhem’s bottom/main section

Above: And here’s the mould for the top section. When all the parts are ready – the model consists of four ‘main’ sections – they will be assembled to ensure everything fits snugly together before work starts on the final, finishing stage

Should have pics of the Bringer of Mayhem replica in a more complete state to share pretty soon.

Until next time, keep it metal.

GIFs of metal

For your viewing pleasure, here's a triple whammy of GIFs, courtesy of Valfaris creator/dev/artist Andrew Gilmour...

Above: Therion lights up a shady area of the Eco Chambers using the rapid-fire Destroyer-class 'Hellwraith' and eponymous rail-pistol 'Therion's Own'

Above: Who doesn't love a good elevator section where you can let loose and blast the absolute bejesus out of anything and everything while simultaneously being transported from one place to another. I know I do

Above: With a sun looming behind him, Therion idles while armed with the formidable 'Bringer of Mayhem' beam weapon, which can be seen in action in the previous GIF

Until next time, keep it metal.
