We talked to Tony Swatton, legendary Hollywood blacksmith, about building a real-life version of Heaven's Disk from The Legend of Solgard
Sometimes we like to tell you about the awesome stuff going on around mobile gaming, not just about how awesome mobile games are. And this is definitely one of those times. Because what's more awesome than real-life weapons based on things from your favorite games? We can't think of a single thing quite frankly.
So when we found out that King had commissioned Tony Swatton, a legendary blacksmith in the entertainment industry with decades of work behind him, to make a weapon from Legend of Solgard, we figured it'd be silly if we didn't talk to him about the build, his career, and how you might get into blacksmithing yourself.
And that's exactly what this article is. Along the way you'll see some images from the build, and at the end of the piece you can check out a video that shows the process from piece of metal to an amazing looking, finished version of the Heaven's Disk from the game.
If you've not heard of Legend of Solgard, it's something of a departure from King. While it does have match-stuff mechanics, there's some deeper RPG stuff going on in the background, and a host of intriguing characters for you to unlock.
