Hammer of the Wind WIP 2


Finally finished her chain mail!! Jeez, that was tedious! But worth it (:

Between hours spent laboriously toiling away on the mail links, worked on other details to relieve the monotony, but most of the time spent on Hammer since the last WIP I posted, has been spent on that mail. Yay, now I can really get going… I’m loving my Wind Hammer!

As always, I have listened to a constant musical diet whilst working on this, from Grimes and Helicopter Girl, to Cults and KT Tunstall, but two tracks I’ve thrashed a bit, are Maleficent Flies, and Escape from the Tower, both by James Newton Howard… they are perfect Hammer soundtracks! I can totally see her single-handedly kicking Troll ass with Escape from the Tower blasting in the background (:

    • Cheers! She’s nowhere near finished, yet, but I’d decided on chain mail, and I have no regrets, now that the donkey work (and RSI) is over. Thanks for the feedback; makes it all worthwhile (:

  2. For the sake of the chain mail, I just hope she doesn’t gain or lose weight any time soon.

    • This is a WIP, so her mail could wind up more practical, I’ve certainly considered practicality versus artistic licence. At this stage, lets say her mail is magical, self-supporting, form-fitting Dwarven mail.
