    Yes, ladies and gentlemen (but mainly gentlemen), the moment has arrived!

    Titus Blair has put himself up with crafting the most unlikely sword in the known Fantasy Universe;

    Frostmourne.

    Let me refresh your memory. The game is Warcraft 3. In the single player missions, the first campain is the Humans, in which we follow Arthas, a young prince of Lordaeron. He hears about a legendary sword, called Frostmourne, which is said to be hidden in Northrend. Foolish Arthas grasps the sword, which turns out to be cursed by Ner'Zhul, corrupting Arthas into the hands of the Undead Scourge. In that famous cinematic between the Human and Undead campain, he kills his father, making and end to Lordaeron and his dynasty.

    I wonder how it will turn out. Frostmourne looks awesome in the cinematics. That link's screenshot of Frostmourne looks a wee bit on the thin side. I thought it looked bigger when you see Arthas holding it in the cinematic when he bows before his father before killing him.

    I'm pretty sure that its the same company producing it. As far as I know, Kit is helping design the sword with Epic Weapons.

    Unfortunately UC has gone under and filed for bankruptcy and had to let go most of their employee's and the production team, Kit included. I'm glad that he has teamed up with Epic Weapons for the Frostmourne project because of his experience with the swords of the ancients that he developed. I'm still waiting for some high-res pictures from them... but I'll be ording this one for sure!

    Buggers. I think I actually heared that somewhere, but never followed up on it.


    Weeeellll... maybe the era of quality finally arrives; I never quite like the finishes on my LE Anduril. In the mean time... waiting for pics of the Frostie :D
