I never did a Thunderstrike. I stopped reading Thor shortly after the Walt Simonson run ended so I'm only tangentially familiar with that hammer.I know this is an old thread, but I went looking for Stormbreaker builds after seeing so many Mjolnir threads and found this.
Looks great and so does your Mjolnir.
Just wondering... Did you ever make Thunderstrike?
If so I would love to see it too.
Oh believe me I don't hate ANY attempt at creating comic book props. I love to see people's different takes on the props, because fanboy or not different artists over the years have had different takes on everything from the weapons and costumes, to the characters themselves. I understand that a lot of people will base their stuff on the classic Walt Simonson Thor issues with the weathered hammer, this one just happens to be my favorite specifically because it doesn't conform to the standard.Both those hammers do look great. Stormbreaker is breathtaking.
Wicked would hate the new version of Mjolnir I just created - even more weatherd than my first attempt. I can understand his logic behind the hammer being perpetually new but for the record (cause I'm a total fanboy), it wasn't built by the gods, but for the gods. The dwarven blacksmiths, Brok and Etri forged the hammer by Odin's request. Also the hammer can and has been damaged many times in the past. Thor has been shown doing the repairs himself on occassion.
If I ever do a a Stormbreaker it will look shiney and new since that hammer is only a couple decades old vs. Mjolnir who is thousands of years old.
