  • "World Eater" a SKYRIM case mod by XcaliburFX ... update 7-28-2013

    Hi Folks,

    For the 2013 Staff vs Staff mod-off contest I will be creating a case mod based off of the Bethesda game SKYRIM. The Dragon Alduin, also known as the "World Eater" (which will also be the name of the mod) will be my inspiration.

    More to come soon.

    ~X~

    I Would like to extend a special thanks to our current sponsors for these builds in the Staff vs Staff Mod-Off.

          And we have a winner, it is in fact the collectors edition ALDUIN Dragon Statue No prize for winning, except for being the first to guess it.

            No new images just yet, finally got my panel dropped off for a bit of waterjet cutting late this am. Hoping that turns out well. Kind of slow going at the moment for me, as I have not been well as of late. Should have some progress pics up by weeks end or sooner I hope.

              Received a proof image from the folks doing the waterjet cutting, can't wait to see what it looks like. Should have it by tomorrow afternoon when I get back from the wife's Dr in Atlanta.

                    BTW, the roughness you see in the cut, isn't actually in the cut, it is where the paint chipped etc as it was cut. The back of side is smooth, which doesn't matter since it will all be sanded down.

                          Thanks D!

                          Yes, it did save a lot of work and time, not to mention easier on my patience lol.

                            No big progress pics, but I here we have a couple images of some items to expect to see. Alduin, The World Eater" himself, 50 LEDs and well some 1/4" plexi that I don't have a pick of. Got the plexi and LEDs in today. Stay tuned, as I do have more images to come soon, and hopefully they will be more interesting. Sorry for the slow going on the pics and updates, but rain, life, injuries and pain have slowed things considerably. Rest assured she will be at QC 2013.
