We've been a bit tardy in posting more pics and information, but getting the new worshop together and shifting the tools has taken time - almost there though.
That said, we're still on course with the Space Marine Chainsword, which we've decided will have Blood Angel Chapter markings on it (as you can see below). The teeth are coming along, the whole thing's had a coat of sliver paint so that chips and damage show through as metalic, and it's almost time for the final colouring and finishing.

We've also researched the gauntlets previously mentioned and are designing the best way of fabricating them - also looking at inner-gloves so that people can wear them comfrotably. Although we'd like to keep things authentic, it's probably going to be modern production techniques that win this one, for comfort and finish.
