Does this make me Warchief? Weighing in at 8.1kg and forged from steel, Epic Weapons’ Doomhammer replica is one mighty meat tenderiser. If I can scrape up $US300 we might have a new banhammer on our hands.
The Doomhammer is the weapon of the Orc warchiefs in World of Warcraft, passed down from father to son over the ages. Thrall himself wields it, the weapon given to him during the flight of the Orcs from their homeworld of Draenor. I might have that wrong; either way it’s a pretty important piece of equipment.
There are actually two different Doomhammers at BlizzCon 2011 this weekend. One, available for purchase at the BlizzCon store for under $US200, is a live-action role-playing weapon, crafted of PVC and foam and then painted to look extremely similar to its weightier, more expensive inspiration.
The one I’m holding here is the real deal, or as real a deal as you can get. It’s made by Epic Weapons, the same company that made the gorgeous reproduction of Frostmourne a few years back. It’s up for preorder on the Epic Weapons website for $US284.95, a small price to pay for the ultimate in home security.
