I remember, that you could buy the real size replica of this sword, infact there is a picture of it on the Games Workshop wide web home page. I was wondering if anyone could direct me to the online store where you can purchase this, or is it no longer available to buy?

Thanks

Warp Artifacts used to handle all that sort of thing, but it was absorbed into Black Library.

Sadly it seems sold out.

Hey man, hit google...there are some other stores that carry the sword...now I cannot promise if they are the real deal, but do a search for "slayer of kings" and you should get some hits...

but it looks like the price is either really low (which means a fake) or really high...I guess that is what being collectible is all about!

The second one looks pretty fake; it's got a straight blade! No funky daemonic warping at all :(
The other 2 look fairly genuine.

The second is a fake. The real slayer of kings that was from warp artifacts had a wavey (or flanged whatever you want to call it) blade. The first and last ones look like the real deal.

Warp artifacts also did Prince Tyrions sword (not so good with my high elves but I think its called Sunfang, correct me if I'm wrong).

I'm not sure if the wepons got absorbed into the black library or not, i haven't looked in a while.

If you plan on buying any of them just make sure it says "made from metal"

I had a friend who thought he got a LotR sword off Ebay for $100 and it was plastic.

I do wish that warp artifacts made sunfang :( they hyped it and hyped it then said it was never happening.

#2 looks like such a piece of garbage.
