Skyrim Steel Greatsword Replica by TheAnti-Lily Skyrim Steel Greatsword Replica by TheAnti-Lily
Alright guys, i've been holding out on you. I finished this over a week ago, but silly Australia decided it'd rain for a week, so photo ops had to go on hold.

It measures in at 1.2 meters tall, and it weights barely over 1 kilogram.
Made from Acrylic, MDF, Styrene, Aluminium rod, Body filler, Green Stuff, and a sneaky hidden bicycle brake wire in the blade.

***Tumblr Users: I get a lot of people posting this on Tumblr without credit. Which rustles my jimmys a bit. So here's a link to the tumblr post: antilily.tumblr.com/post/78065…

ooh, that is neat work! (came here after seeing this sword featured on the propnomicon blog) i always liked the steel weapons in skyrim for their design. a shame they get useless so early in the game.

you mentioned perspective playing tricks on the proportions, but isn’t 1.20 m a tad short for a weapon that scale? i realise scaling from a coherent set of models is tricky, but at that length of ricasso & parrying hooks, i wouldn’t have guessed this to be under 1.40 m, and would have made it ~1.60-ish for myself. nevertheless, great work! :)

Nice! I checked it out after i saw this comment, there are some pretty interesting projects up on that blog. 
Yeah, it's a damned shame you can't even enchant them enough to be used as a powerful weapon later in the game... le sigh.

In terms of a real sword like this, it may be too short. But i tend to follow the scale from my steel sword build, which was the first one i built in this set. I lay them next to eachother in game and scale down my outlines in photoshop to match.

yes, it’s a nice blog. mostly lovecraft mythos, but as far as i’m considered, that’s not a bad baseline topic for props.

re sword scale: i figured you have some kind of method for calculating scale. :) there is also the possibility of the models themselves not making too much sense in their own proportions and/or in relation to each other. they need to look good and recogniseable in-game and fit all the models first and foremost, after all.

darned if i know where i saw it, but someone made a replica of the daedric dagger where the scale might have been off to a small degree. the overall design proportions then made it look like a long dagger or a short shortsword with a homungous handle. doing a quick eyeballing, an 8 cm grip (already on the short side) makes for a blade length of ~21ish cm and an overall handle length of close to 19 cm. i have no idea how one would go about making a non-ridonculous-looking prop of that one without some serious translation work.
