Hail to the King, Baby.

Mike Iverson brings us this amazing recreation of Ash's mechanical hand from "Army of Darkness". The detailed build log goes into every step of its creation, and he even has templates for the parts available as a download.

Blind Squirrel Props has a good step-by-step on making this prop. I have to say I am impressed by some of the prop makers out there.

Army of Darkness was such a great film. The shtick was just right. It's right up there with Toxic Avenger.

Thanks for the link Props! I'll be sharing this one over on my fav Steampunk (yeah, I don't wanna hear it) forum.

I did a little exploring on his blog and discovered his technique of using puff paint to create rained runes on his Sauron helm. I'm definately stealing that technique! :)

@ CoastConFan

I love AoD, but I've never been able to get into any of the Troma films. Which is a bit bizarre, since I find every behind-the-scenes feature about Lloyd Kaufman and his studio absolutely fascinating. He's so damn gleeful and full of energy that you get caught up in his enthusiasm.

@ Phil

If more steampunk projects had this level of craftsmanship the world would be a much better place.

And the puff paint idea is brilliant.
