Objective Marker: The Weapon

The third and final objective marker for Adepticon:  The Weapon.  The counter is a matched pair of curved blades made from two layers of plastic card with epoxy putty smoothing the transition lines.  Laying two swords on a bare base looked all too dull- the solution was to elevate the blades on a pair of rounded tubes (which also matched the design concepts of the two previous pieces).  Because the marker will be cast, the gap between the blades and the base was filled to prevent mold lock.  Fortunately, the most common view of the marker will be from over head – hiding the fill.
