Warhammer 40k Commissar Chainsword Replica by Renquist-von-Reik Warhammer 40k Commissar Chainsword Replica by Renquist-von-Reik
Here's a new chainsword I made for a commissar! Scary man to deal with, but fortunately he was very happy with his gift ;)

Essentially the same design as my hazard stripe version but with a different quote and color scheme.

I'm working on a Commissar myself... I want one! It looks exquisite.

I'd say a mighty weapon for cutting down any menace, for the Emperor of course! :D

Only in death does duty end, for spartans never die, regroup in hell and fight their way back.
*combined quotes from Warhammer 40K and Halo. Please don't shoot me. xD Last part is made up I believe*

over 20 years (when I was really young I didn't know the game part but I did play with the minis)

Owning something like this would be like owning a piece of my childhood. I really want this.

Hahaha, that's one of the reasons I made it! I first found Warhammer 40k in 1988 and devoted a lot of my childhood playtime to the universe. Each time I make a new 40k prop I feel like a kid again!

Stunning work, really stunning. Do you have resin casting molds for this as well?

Thanks! :)

I have molds for the handle and the teeth, but I hand make the blade lengths each time. When I made the first one I didn't know how to make molds for hollow castings and the weight of the entire chainsword in solid resin would have been close to 20 lbs!

Also, hand making the blades isn't actually very hard and I can customize the details each time (I'll have a picture next week of a totally different design finally!)

I'd like to see you do a Space Wolf or Chaos style chainsword. Y'know, without the casing over the blade. The perfect weapon for someone with absolutely no regard for personal safety.

That would be very cool, hehe. I've been itching to do a chaos weapon lately - something ugly and corrupt - and a chainsword could be absolutely terrifying! ;)

A chainaxe would also be pretty interesting to see, if you're wanting to do something a little further from things you've already made. Oh, I just thought of an idea I think would look really cool on a chainaxe. If the axe head's casing was shaped like an open-mouthed demonic silhouette. And I think it would go well with the vicious roar I think of when I picture a chainaxe being used.

A chainaxe would be excellent! I've also always had a soft spot in my heart for chaos plasma pistols, the old designs with lot of extra pipes and tubes. Maybe I should just make both and make some berserker armor and go cosplay as Kharn the Betrayer! :pissed:

BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
