    i don't know if you can do this, but is there anyway you could make the throwing axes have like a rusty look to them? that would be so cool!

    suppose you could texture them rusty if you wanted. but I think vikings would take care of their weapons.

    I think the handles could be a little bit longer. They shouldn't be hatchets. Plus with a longer handle, wouldn't you get a fast moving object? LoL.

    I'm told that it's much easier to put a fast spin on an axe or knife that has a small grip or handle. I honestly don't know whether that's true or not. I do know that a faster spin would be desirable, because the spin helps stabilize the knife or axe's trajectory.

    I was just thinking of the fact that when you swing a baseball bat, the tip of the bat is moving faster than your hand is. I also remember something african, I think, that is used to throw a spear. It is just a stick with a thing on the end to hold the spear and you overhand swing it forward to throw the spear faster than you could do with your hand. LoL.

    I think I know what Stalin's talking about, but that wouldn't work with an axe, because they spin (unlike spears).

    The throwing axe looks fine as it is, but I always thought it would be cool to have a giant throwing axe like the Frankish throwing axeman have in AoK. Maybe as a different weapon, anyway.

    8) Before anyone says anything, on the top and bottom of the axe, I made the edges to bright by accident tongue.gif That will be fixed.

    The Brightness on the front of the axe where the edge is would be great to leave. The other parts if you can, could be removed:) That thing is great! I FEEL INSPIRATION CHURNING IN MY BOWELS!!! MHAHAHAAHAHA!!!

    You don't like the edges! How dare you!
    Hehe, i agree they should probably be a little less bright, but I think they add something that musn't be taken away!

    I never said I was going to make it rusty tongue.gif , that was your suggestion. Ive never seen a rusty axe that has been sharpened every once in awhile on a grinding stone, or with a sharpening stone etc.. that is rusty, generally if your a soldier you want to take care of your weapon as you dont want it to be brittle/damaged/worn in a fight..

    I mean if it was sitting on the ground or somewhere abandoned and not taken care of exposed to the elements yes it can be rusty, that also depends on the build quality of the weapon and materials used.. Ive had a mini hatchet for years, but I havent used it for 2 years and its been exposed the the elements and it isnt rusty.

    Its prob stainless steel or something, LoL. Unlike viking stuff which prob would be like iron or something. Oh well, rust sucks anyway. LoL.

    yeah but everyone knows it's more painful to be killed by a rusty weapon!

    Weapons shouldn't look brand new or perfect in my opinion. smile.gif
    I like how it has scratches, looks good! The handle could be a little more beaten, though.
    If it's not, that's good too, because a handle is easily replaced in real life.

    Well, while that would look cool; vikings were good at that stuff and probably had straight shafts. smile.gif
