Arm of the Mercenary by davevdveer Arm of the Mercenary by davevdveer
A more armoured version of the previous arm. The panel on the forearm slides back, to reveal concealed weapons. Also, the hand part is removable, to accomodate more... agressive appendages in its place.

Made with Heavy Leather, copper and brass rivets, brass tubing, and odds and ends.

For the latin speakers among us: The inscription under the eagle reads "avt viam inveniam avt faciam", and the one on the forearm reads as "bellum est in vestri cruor".

AWESOME! you familiar with a short lived steampunk webshow called Riese: Kingdom falling? It's still viewable on syfy channel's website. A character, Herrick, had an incredibly similar arm.

It was a fun watch- yet another on the list of cancelled/stepped on shit that didn't deserve it. Also, I like the watch on here- gotta be able to tell time when you walk around in public with this SOB. Brilliant work!

Great but those gears on fongers and thar brass one are unnecessary in my opinion. They wouldn't do any job if steampunk technology could exist.

The finger ones essentially have the same effect as a knuckleduster. As for the brass one: you need something to scale back the power on this thing. Turning the gear does exactly that :)

Oh, that is a good argumentation to the brass one I like it. But the finger ones just don't fit in my opinion, You'd better made them as solid brass plates :)

This is cool, but I don't speak Latin. What does that mean?

The first one means "I will either find a way, or make one"... which proved quite prophetical once i got to the hand part, which was a pain in the arse to make. The other one means "War is in your blood", which comes directly from one of my favourite Borderlands weapons.

Excellent work. I wish I could see it in person so I could get a better idea of the construction details.

It is awesome, looks even better than I expected, despite having seen the progress as you were building it, it really came together quite nicely!
