Connor's tomahawk from the upcoming game, Assassin's Creed III.
About this creation
With the release of ACIII on its way this October, and upon my recieving one of these weapons, I decided to build one in LDD.
Connor's (the main character in ACIII) choice of weapon is the Native American tomahawk, which represents his Native American ancestors and family. The tomahawk is a lethal weapon, both in close combat and as a throwing weapon. With skill, like an Assassin would posses, an enemy can be brought down with one at quite a distance.
As you can tell from the main picture, the blade itself is in the shape of the Assassin's emblem.

Details on the wood that in real life is leather and beads.

Okay, so I didn't take my time with this. Sue me. I'm just happy that I found a way to create the blade! But also, in my defense, this is LDD and I can't wrap string around it like I normally could. Plus the thin leather can't very well translate into LEGO. Plus, I'm working with round pieces. A small size difference is difficult to translate... okay. I'm done complaining and defending myself. Hope you like it!
