“Barad-Dûr Saber – version 2” – A reworked classic for post no.666!

Re-blogging this fantastic post from my friend here, For Tyeth at (FTSabersite). Particularly For fans of Star Wars, LOTR, New Zealand. FT is a real life Jedi (check out his Cosplay) and Visual Effects Wizard.

It was forged in fire, brimstone and lots of lava….this is the return of “Barad-Dûr Saber – V2”….

Life is too hard, man. Forget marriage, kids (sorry, Grandpa), owning a house; I’m just trying to keep a roof over my head. Have lost 37 pounds in a year being flat-ironed across the pavement by America Incorporated. I stare at my ribs in the mirror like The Machinist. Starting to glitch out.
