My try at Mat's Ashandarei

Recommended Posts

Here is a photo of my 1st attempt at the dagger from Shadar Logoth. I'm working on improvements. If the attachment works, I'll get more up and some of the ashandarei also.

I have an album up in the gallery named My WoT Replica Weapons with pics of all my WoT related/inspired projects. Couldn't get pics to post on this thread. I just recently completed my 2nd Dagger from S.L. I think it's quite an improvement from my 1st. Wade, what will you use to do the carvings on the haft? I used my rotory tool with the finest tip I could find.

Hmm, lasering? I'd never even thought of that. That would certainly work for the ravens that are etched on the blade too. Do you know someone that does that? Or are there businesses out there that specialize in lasering? I was pretty happy with the results using my "dremel". It was the first time I had attempted it and I was terrified of making a mistake and ruining the whole haft, but it came out acceptable to me and I'm usually my own harshest critic by far. I actually had quite a time of transferring the line of script (not in the Old Tongue, unfortunately : ( ) to the haft for me to carve. I didn't write it freehand. I printed the whole inscription in the font I chose, cut it into narrow strips and went really old school, tracing it out with carbon paper. Not easy on a rounded shape! I did flatten out that area a bit to try to make it a little easier. Would lasering be deep enough to even see with the haft being so black?

Okay, after doing too much research, I found out these things:

 

"Domeran" is just a made up list of words altered for the WoT Mud (Lurkers debunked that one here: http://www.dragonmount.com/forums/topic/36716-forsaken-names/page__hl__+domeran#entry1039771 )

 

HOWEVER, I wish you would have commented, Wade, that the image of the alphabet you posted was from the inside cover of the NS graphic novel. The way your comments read made it seem as if you just made it up on your own.

Hi there all. Wade, how is everything progressing on the ashanderei? I've been following the thread for a little while. I love the work you have done already. I've been toying with the idea of making one myself, or commissioning one from a friend of mine. I'm trying to base mine on the russian Sovnya.

    • Also something something  contractually obliged to support Chris and WiFi in their endeavours 
    • /shrug there appear to be 3 lines of discontent   That the main actress asked for more diversity in the interviews (although I think she was more blunt in her phrasing and initially asked for fewer white middle aged males, and later clarified more diverse). Also that she's being paid significantly more for her first movie than eg Robert Downey Jr was for ironman 1, although I think this is correct I haven't seen any analysis that compares her first pay with eg the payscales in Spiderman, black panther, antman etc (or other first films since the universe became so popular). the marvel universe films are a different beast now to 20 odd films ago   That captain marvel was initially a male character(?)   That they think endgame will all be about captain marvel and sideline the other main characters (this would be a mistake if done, but I see little reason to believe that's the plan, it does seem from contracts if nothing else that marvel will be one of the core group for the next phase)       Regardless I agree it's dumb, and I enjoyed the film more than I thought I would (my misgivings being that I generally dislike heroes that are super super super powered, or at least get bored by their plotlines. I appreciate the irony in someone that enjoys superhero films and fantasy in general). But I enjoyed the marvel/fury dynamic, laughed a fair bit and generally enjoyed it     From a different perspective, its currently my niece's favourite MU film, and captain marvel is her favourite character, but she's more of a DC fan at the moment from watching the DC school series(?) and she does enjoy super powered female heroes in general
