    I am working with Epic Weapons on the product development and design for the Frostmourne sword from Warcraft. It should be out sometime next year. I'll post some updates here if there is interest. I'm sure there are some Warcraft players here. It is a very wicked looking fantasy blade. If I can, I'll post some pix of the preliminary design.

    Yeah, Frostmourne IS awesome, lol. I'm a Warcraft III player myself - definitely not WoW.

    hehehe... Kit?

    You do know that, apart from being very badass, it's also very unbelievable being a sword as such? I mean, the skull detail's very cool and all. But I fear it's going to weigh in at at least a ton.

    And erm... I hope you manage to include the smoke details and mental voices :D

    Either way, really looking forward to the results

    Hey Kit, any update on this project?

    Could you also describe your own involvement, like, are you responsible for the overall design (which would be nice ;) ?

    My part of the project was completed a while back. Epic Weapons started taking pre-orders a few weeks back, and the product is supposed to be shipping soon. The prototype looked good, but I have not see the actual production. I supervised the look of the repro and the CAD/tooling design, and packaging.

    Has anyone got any knowledge on the story behind Frostmourne and how Arthas came in possession of it? I read that he retrieved it from a solid block of ice, in Northrend, and that the Lich King could communicate to Arthas through it. I am wondering when the story was made up, cuz Steven Erikson tells a story almost identical to this one, in Reaper's Gale which was released a couple of years back.

    I would be very interested in seeing how it would look like in real life although what makes me sad is that it would probably be too difficult for me to acquire one.

    whahaha! - that's ace, Tam!

    Not sure whether it's still in production, Foin. I've seen it on offer here and there; and there are various threads about this sword across TFF. Just look around a bit :)

    Here's a webside, tho

    Rather than writing something myself, click here. Arthas is Illidan's bitch.
