    Don't know about you guys, but I'm looking forward to seeing the Bulwark of Azzinoth the most out of this whole project. I love that shield too much.

    My comments on the "sharpness" of the blade did not take Blizzcon into consideration, because with the amount of time and money he is investing, I personally would be more interested in the quality and authenticity of the work, not in being able to enter a costume contest once a year in it.

    I wouldn't mind a blatant Master Chief ripoff in plate armor sets for WoW. The shoulders are different style than what WoW shoulders typically are I spose lol.

    ftw?

    The Brutalizer is almost finished! We still have a few details and the "counterweight" on the handle to add. There some grinding left and, of course, paint. It's not going out to paint until the shield is finished as well. Enjoy!

    Man I’d go tell your wife again that she is the most awesome women on the planet for letting you do this. I don’t know a single women that wouldn’t be dead set against this plan. Her support in this project is what I envy you the most.

    That being said I don’t care how much that armor weighed if I owned it I’d become strong enough to walk around in it all day long.

    I hope that none of the rules prevent you from being able to enter the costume contest. Your only fault would be that the costume is “too” good. As far as the weapons and sharp edges, I think their major concern is allowing “weapons” on the Blizcon floor (or pretty much anything you could hurt anyone else with). You may have to come up with soft “stand in” replacements for the show.

    I'll be curious to see the exact finished weight on that thing! I can't imagine it not being awkward even with a significant counter-weight.

    Also, I would think, given what we've seen so far, that the armor itself would probably be considered a weapon for BlizzCon purposes, in that it would be quite capable of hurting someone, intentionally or otherwise.

    Wow. Talk about bursting a bubble! I'd be pretty pissed off if they said I couldn't compete. I might even have to e-mail Blizzard to see what their opinion is on the subject. I mean, I don't have any plans to hurt anyone and it's not even a sharpened blade.

    If they did something ludicris like that, I'd go out to the parking lot across the street from BlizzCon and try to pull attention away from the event. Maybe someone would be notified and they'd invite me inside. Who knows?

    Bollocks!

    ote that costumes may not include or otherwise utilize any edged weapons (such as knives, daggers, swords), firearms of any kind including airguns, long bows, crossbows, or any other type of projectile weapon regardless of whether it is unloaded or nonfunctional; ‘actual’ clubs, maces, or other ‘crushing weapons.’ Acceptable costume ‘weapon props’ will be limited to air filled or soft plastic swords, daggers, maces or clubs, and wooden staves that are not shod with metal.
    Now I have to get on the phone or e-mail Blizzard to see how to get around this. Ultimately, it's their decision. Maybe I'll have to go through a clearance process or something. I guess if I can't enter the competition, I'd be willing to have Blizzard bring me and my ultimate fan project to Anaheim for display. I mean, total cost of getting me to Anaheim, tickets w/backstage passes, & hotel room for however many days couldn't be more than $1500. That'd be a good investment for Blizzard.

    this is so @#^^&&^$^%!(&@!@^&& COOL!!
    i was readin through the whole forum and i saw ppl were wondering how the shoulders were gonna be held up, I was imagining not to let em have thier own piece to to make it somewhat a 1 piece design if not held together by straps unther the body armor im just tossing an idea out there

    WARRIOR T6 FTW!!!

    Amazing costume, but i highly doubt the weapon will be allowed.

    Its not sharp, but it i will essentially be a "crushing" weapon. The rules clearly state those are not allowed. Heck, you are only allowed a wooden stave, if it doesnt ahve metal in it.

    I know its sucks, but there really isnt much you can do...


    And, as someone above posted... the armor itself is probably going to be considered a weapon. They may let you in and compete, but i doubt you will be allowed to walk around with it on.

    Think how damaging the shoulder spike would be if you fell on someone, or they walked into it.


    I assume the main consern is they dont want weapons in the crowd, so maybe they will allow it if you hand it in and only hold it on stage, but i wouldnt hold my breath.

    Don't get me wrong. I like the idea of this. I just do not think you will be able to walk around a room much less blizzcon in this thing. If someone got to excited and ran into or jumped on you it could be very painful. The weight must be insane. It could be done with finer metals but that would be to costly. Let's remember this armor was designed for the mighty warriors of Azeroth as they faught Illidan. Not average joe working in IT. I do however highly reccomend dressing your girlfriend up as Dorothy and RP .

    This is way too awesome. I'm actually excited to see more of this, specially the shield. Congratz sir.

    Thanks for sharing, and keeping us updated.

    Too bad I'm a million miles away, or I'd be deciding between cataclysm's edge, ash'kandi or sulfuras.

    I have a feeling that this armor smith is about to get really busy and really familiar with WoW armor and weaponry... lol
