There are a people alien to this world - a race of immortals blessed with unspeakable powers.  From their necrotised, battle-scarred remains are formed living weapons.  [Sylak.]

 

Pictures #1 Pictures #2 Making of:

 

Bio-dagger model.

Proof that this is a mock-up piece.

Stark, isn't it!

Unpainted prop.

The original plan was to give the blade a 'bone' like finish, implying that the bones of the radius and ulna had been pushed through the flesh; thus taking on a twisted appearence.

However; when I discovered how to create a realistic metalised effect - I could'nt resist.
It certainly looked great, and inspired us to bring out a more aquatic feel in the final paint job.

Nicky (our colour expert), and I researched Cuttle Fish for inspiration - which set the mood of the piece.

Nicky - at work.

 

The prop being painted by Nicky.

The blade is crowned with a unique insignia. Designed to incorporate our Bio-technology feel, it represents a double helix D.N.A chain molicule, morphing into a bar code. The 'alien inscription' was just my fantasy.
