K3GR1: Tactical
« on: November 07, 2009, 03:00:17 PM »
Second place in the K3GR1 contest - not too shabby. ;)

This is called "Tactical".  And if you have Novastar's CD Compendium, you might notica a soundfont called "Assassin".  I made that sound font specifically for this saber. 

The weathering is intended to simulate the ordinary usage of a duty weapon.  Soldiers, Military, Law Enforcement all have duty weapons and while they may not be the cleanest and prettiest thing around, the reliability factor can never be less than 100%.  THAT was what I was trying to get across with "Tactical".

Whether it's the weapon of a Planetary System Guardian who cleans the space port streets of criminal scum, a Vanguard General returning from the latest campaign that swept 18 systems free of Separatists, or the Commander of a covert Jedi commando team sent in to extract a kidnapped princess from Nal Hutta -- this saber says it best: been there, done that.

Specs:
- Intentionally weathered this time to reflect duty usage
- LEDEngine 5w Blue
- CF V3
- 2x Ultrafire 18650s with 3000mah (the new red ones)
- Double kill/safe system (watch the vid)
- New sound font: Assassin
- All black k3gr1
- Rubber grip

Even though it's black, this is intended to be a "Good Guy" saber.

I'd have to agree.  I have seen some great weathering but many times it, looks weathered intentionally.  This one makes you think it was really old and weathered.  Awesome job.  ;)

Thanks guys!. ;)  I spent a LOT of time considering the degree of weathering.  I did my homework on this one.  So thank you for recognizing that effort - it's nice to see the elements that I'm proud of are evident.  :)

Loaded it onto Nihilus last night too.
I need to sample the Sidious war cry into a force effect and add it to the Assassin font  ;D
