Warhammer 40k Chainsword Replica by Renquist-von-Reik Warhammer 40k Chainsword Replica by Renquist-von-Reik
A life sized replica chainsword from Warhammer 40k.

I've been working on this for about a month now and after a lot of blood, sweat, and tears I am happy to say it is finally completed! It's based on the design by Studio Oxmox for THQ that was given away as promotional prizes with the release of the Space Marine video game. This measures 37" tip to tip and weighs around 4lbs.

Constructed out of lots of materials -
The handle is resin cast around pvc pipe which forms the grip itself and runs about 2 feet into the blade to give it strength and stability. The blade is pink foam sheathed in MDF and then fiber glass for extra strength! The details on the blade are mostly styrene plastic with some resin bits as well.

The inscription on the side reads in High Gothic "Imperator Dentes Ruminant Omnes" which roughly translates to - The Emperor's Teeth Chew All.

The Hilt reads "Pax Imperium" which translates in essence to - The entire world (galaxy) is the Imperium, or basically we rule all!

Painted with an airbrush and by hand using acrylic paints and given many coats of spray varnish to protect it on the bloody battlefields of the 41st millennium!

Thanks for looking!

If you'd like to see the behind the scenes as to how I built this check out my latest blog post. I have a build log with pictures and descriptions of the process! You can view my blog HERE!

Here's some other shots of the chainsword:

The inscription on the side translates roughly to "emperor of all the teeth chew".
Great chainblade by the way.

How did you so accurately cut out the blades? I'm trying to make an Eldar Striking Scorpion chainblade and I'm having a pain in the ass of a time trying to make it.

Do you mean all the chainsaw teeth on the blade? I sculpted on tooth in clay and made a mold of it, then I cast as many as I needed in resin! Much easier than trying to make each tooth individually and ensuring they all match ;)
