RWBY Gambol Shroud WIP

Build Notes:

To start off with the blade is cut from a plank of pine and the bevel of the blade shaped with a belt sander;

Though at a quick glance it may appear to be a variant of a katana, the blade actually has a part that juts up, making it more akin to a fantasy elven blade or scimitar/sabre.

For the handgun handle and body, this was built around the wooden blade, by layering and gluing together PVC sheets, using epoxy sculpt and bondo to fill in alot of the gaps. The muzzle is actually made from the top nozzle of an old water bottle.

Just need to clean up some details here and there and it is next to start on the scabbard this will slide into :D

This doesn't confirm my suspicions, so I'm still torn over the type of pistol they used as a base when making Blake's weapon; an existing one, or they based it off an M6 Magnum, perhaps the M6C.

Those are weapons from HALO, by the way, which they would have asset models for from Red vs Blue, so it wouldn't surprise me... but every time I see Blake's weapon in use, I can't decide.

Wonderful prop making!! I read your blog on how to make the gambol shroud, and I must say it's really helping me in giving a base for my prop building on the gambol shroud. May I ask: what are the measurements of the PVC sheets and handle? if you could help me out here, I would forever be grateful. Thank you and have a wonderful day!! ~

I am hoping to eventually cosplay as Blake, and your progress on her blade has really inspired me to do my best on my own version of Blake's blade. Thank you for sharing how you made it. :)

I am going to be stalking the crap out of your Gambol Shroud WIPs. Just fair warning! :) I'm working on my cosplay of Blake and am trying to wrap my head around creating Blake's Gambol Shroud... Monty's weapons are so damn complex!

I know right? :D That’s one of the reasons I’m getting really invested in this series, just to see how nuts the weapon designs are gonna be.

I'll do my best not to disappoint and look forward to what you come up with, but perhaps in the mean time this will interest to you ^^
