I've recently moved to an area where I'm doing a fair bit of cross-gaming with Dagorhir, and I'm trying to figure out how to build a flail head that will meet the 4 oz minimum weight, while still staying close to the 16" minimum dimensions. I searched all over the Dag boards, but what I mostly saw was either A) people hating on flails and telling others to just build swords, or B) people parroting what everyone else was saying, while not contributing a viable construction technique. I would have asked this on the Dag boards, but I don't feel much like being flamed for asking about flail construction. You guys are usually above that.

So, any suggestions?

Search isn't working right now, but there is a thread like this, and a post by myself and one by Arrakis which works out the dimensions needed (like 4.5" tall foam strip rolled into a cylinder until the diameter of the circle is appropriate)

Look for that and it will answer your questions on a Bel/Dag legal flail head. Thicker cloth for the covering will add some weight to your flail head.

Thanks for the help. Once 'Search' is working again, I'll try and find it.

That's the one i was looking for. Make yourself a cylinder of blue foam by rolling a 5" tall strip of foam until its 5" across and you should pass weight requirement.
