[CCCXI] Fantasy Castle Figure: the BADASS!

Postby Rifiröfi » Mon Nov 11, 2013 10:53 pm

Hello everyone,

here is my entry to the CCC XI Fantasy Castle Figure category: the Bad Assassin aka the Badass.

The Badass is a fierce and most feared SOB (Swordsman Obligated to Backstabbing).

His main weapon is the crosssword (not the word puzzle, even though he is kinda smart too); it has two grips allowing the assassin to quickly adjust his combat style during a fight:
- The sword can be held as an ordinary sword (attacking position)
- When held by the crossgrip (defending position), the sword's back lies on the forearm and used for blocking attacks even though it can be slided rapidly to strike.

Normally one of the swords is held in the attacking, the other one in the defending position.

__________________________________________________________

The only customized parts are the two swords. The basis were two old timey shortswords, which have been turned into single-edged, slightly curved bladed swords.

Your comments and critics are very much appreciated!

Cheers
Adam

Thanks, you are right about 'plain', I could have overdone it, but I wanted to keep it simple :)
