"It is called the Doomhammer because when its owner takes it into battle, it spells doom for the enemy. The last of the Doomhammer line will use it to bring first salvation and then doom to the orc people. Then it will pass into the hands of one who is not of the Blackrock clan, all will change again, and it will once again be used in the cause of justice."
The legendary Doomhammer seems like a fitting last item to my series of Warcraft related PETG printables at least for now. Design was made combining features from many fan-art pictures as well as short cinematic in the game of Warcraft III. I tried to make it as easily printable as possible while still keeping the original look of the item.
This was by far the most difficult of the three Warcraft items I have printed during the past weeks; not because of the printing though, but because of the post processing to get the "granite stone look" to certain parts and the gradient glow to the whole hammer head.
Would have been easier with lighter blue PETG, but the one I ordered happened to be quite dark, so even with pure white LED's the glow is quite dim in comparison to the other two I made before. Another option would be to use colorless PETG and blue LED's. I think that'd have been easier as well.

Post processing and details done with Citadel miniature paints and melting the surface with a soldering iron to achieve the "chiseled stone" texture. Handle also has fake-leather strips wrapped around it.
