      Well RWBY is a thing. And I plan to make all of the weapons! First up is Blake Belladonna's weapon, the Gambol Shroud!

      Now before we start, this is my first real prop I've made. I've had some experience with power tools and wood working with a shop class back in middle school and helping my dad growing up, but nothing like this. I learned a TON from this build that I look forward to bringing to future props and ver 2.0 of the Gambol Shroud.

      Above is the completed with my borrowed rifle case from my step-father! It came in real handy when flying this down to Fanime in San Jose, California. Below is my lovely Fiance as Blake with the Gambol Shroud! roosterteeth.com/cresendoll

      didn't log hours, but I believe almost half of the entire build was drawing up blueprints. I want to make the weapons as accurate as possible, only to be outdone if pro's like Volpin, PunishedProps, and others on their level make one. I'm also a bit critical of my own work, and there are a lot of things I'm not too happy with on this build personally.

      For this build, the only materials used were 1/8" & 1/4" MDF, wood glue, bondo, and paint.

      After I finally nailed down the blueprints to my satisfaction, I went down to FedEx/Kinko's and had them printed out on their large format printer.

      I cut the pieces out, laid them on the MDF and went to work with my jigsaw! The scabbard is made out of 3 layers of MDF; one 1/4" piece with a 1/8" piece on top and bottom. The gunblade (as I shall now call it) is made of one 1/4" piece in the center and 3 1/8" pieces on each side.

      After all of the cutting was done, I sanded the pieces a bit so they were clean going into the gluing process.

      Always use protection! MDF has formaldehyde which is bad for you.

      Sanded!

      Gunblade! Rough cuts! Scabbard, already sanded a bit.

      I had to sand down the blade on the gunblade first because I wouldn't be able to reach the entire blade to sand once it's glued together.

      You can see in the background of the image below where I got a bit sloppy with the beveling/sanding.

      The gluing begins...I only ever glued 2 pieces together at a time so they set as cleanly as possible

      The main body of the weapon assembled and glued!

      After everything was finally glued together, I had to Had to sand down/bevel the edges of the scabbard to a point. This didn't work out so well. I was using a handheld belt sander and eyeballing it. The bevel should have ended at the red line, but as you will see in the images below, that didn't really happen.

      Deep gouges from a lack of impatience and skill/experience.

      All of it together! The add-on pieces above the muzzle are not glued down yet. Photo conveniently cropped to not show my screw-ups.

      My fix for the shoddy craftsmanship was Bondo body filler. I slapped some on the gouges, let them dry, and then sanded those down to create the edge I wanted.

      Hey everyone!

      Posting here and in the member forums, but I have been building Blake's weapon, the Gambol Shroud, for RT user Cresendoll (not very active, but I'll bug her into posting a progress picture! You can check progress pictures of the build so far in my RT Journal! Come see! Be my friend!! I've been submitting them to be a community project, but they haven't been approved yet. We have a full RWBY group for PAX Prime lined up, and I'm making all of their weapons (minus the Crescent Rose maybe. The cosplayer might make her own).

      Anyways, Here's the most recent progress picture!

      922998_384337708349992_1390631562_n.jpg

      Priming and Painting today! I'll post another journal later on today or tomorrow with more progress!

      Thanks for looking!

    • More progress on the Gambol Shroud!

      Added some more details, and added the other little piece that I may or may not have forgotten about.

      922998_384337708349992_1390631562_n.jpg

      Trying out some Bondo to fix my sloppy sanding mistakes.

      About to go sand that down, seal the edges with some superglue, give a nice last smooth sanding to the entire piece and then go prime!

      GLUE EVERYTHING!

      920524_382642958519467_1645206159_o.jpg

      Blade is roughly beveled

      922542_382643185186111_192552921_o.jpg

      Beveled the blade edge of the scabbard half. I'm pretty noobish with my sanders. Got sloppy at the top; got more careful and patient toward the base. Lesson learned!

      943443_383420651775031_336014985_n.jpg

      Closer look at the beveling and contouring (am I even using those words right?) on the gun!

    • Gambol Shroud Project!

      6 years ago

      Jermajesty

      I am totally psyched for RWBY, and so are my very beautiful cosplay friends (and fiance)!

      A quick note, please disregard the user name. I made it during season 4(?) when I was in high school. I wish I could change it without loosing my badges (I enjoy my first 500k badge)

      My fiance is cosplaying Blake Belladonna for Fanime in San Jose over Memorial Day Weekend, and I've been working on her unique weapon, the Gambol Shroud. With the community spotlight being a thing now, I figured now's a better time than ever to really become active on the site.

      Basically what I have planned is making the weapons for my RWBY group for their group debut at PAX Prime this year. Order is Black>White>Yellow (super excited to find out what it is)>Red (last because my cosplayer might want to make her own).

      Here's some progress pictures of the Gambol Shroud so far! So far it's made of layers of 1/4" & 1/2' MDF.

      Drew up some blueprints on graph paper, scanned them, made them all nice and clean in illustrator, got em printed life size, and got ready to cut using my jigsaw!

      182245_381347205315709_382062836_n.jpg

      Pretty rough cut using a jigsaw. Will likely invest in a scroll saw for Weiss' Myrtenaster for much cleaner more detailed work.

      487611_381682485282181_996937147_n.jpg

      The pistol/katana part of the weapon was a bit more complicated, due to it's 3 dimentional shaping compared to the flat scabbard. This was made using a 'full-tang' base, and then layering 3 pieces on either side for the basic shape of the gun.

      969991_382254618558301_1212747973_n.jpg

      More updates to come! Right now a lot of pieces are drying because they're being glued together.

      Hi Jermazing! I am currently in the process of making Weiss's Myrtenaster this summer and I was using your build for a guide. Amazing job btw it looks gorgeous! I had a question though, what size blade did you use for the scroll saw cutting? Mine seems to not be the right size because I've already snapped one :( Thanks for your help and again your Myrtenaster and other projects look amazing!
