Watch the Making of a World of Warcraft Doomhammer
Maker and blacksmith extraordinaire Tony Swatton of Sword and Stone has mastered the art of building real life versions of fictional weapons. He’s crafted them for films and television and also the web series Man at Arms. His latest project may be his most challenging though. He teamed with Blizzard to forge the Doomhammer from World of Warcraft and to say the weapon is complex is an understatement. Tony put hundreds of hours into the build, and you can see an overview of making the glowing Doomhammer in the above video.
