I wanted to show off my warrior Reliant. I asked Saberforge to delete the control box, and I'm very happy I did. The most comfortable place For me to grip is right where the box would have been. Plus, the two screws that sit where the box would be look cool like little buttons or something. The pics also show a Sentinel I got for my wife; it's awesome too. The blood orange is really nice, a unique color, but its much more red in person than I thought it would be (in pics it seems much more yellow-orange). I wish it was more citrus orange in person. I plan to get a mint green LED to swap out when I'm in the mood. The leather wrap is perfect and comfy. Overall, I'm super happy with it!







EDIT :
Got a new Amber LED to use now

That looks very nice. Somehow, the Reliant looks very well suited to SF's Grey Weathering. Mine looks quite similar to yours (brown reptile instead of brown leather being the main difference).

Congratz!

Hmm...seems a bit odd that your saber has more of a red hue to it. My personal blood orange saber doesn't look red at all. It looks like the outer layer of an actual orange fruit.

Maybe they shipped you a red LED by mistake? My red LED is red-orange in person and my blood orange LED is orange in person, with no hint of red.

Grey weathered Reliant with brown wrap-perfect combo. Beautiful saber you have there. Congrats.

That's possible: Is there a way to know what color it is by looking at the LED? Like a model number?

I think it's because SF is finally using 4 red-orange dies for blood orange instead of red/red/amber/amber which produces just plain orange and never should have been called blood orange in the first place.

I didn't realize that... I think I'll ask if they can still make me one of the old versions. Thanks for the info!!!

Keep loving that config on the Reliant; grey weathering with bronze/brown accents and an orange/amber light really works well :cheer:
I myself think of having a similar look somewhere in the future, doing a grey weathering with bronze stingray wrap and brass accents... maybe a yellow or orange colour as well for the blade ;)

I got an Amber LED from saberforge and I love the color now! The blood orange was just too Sith-y, but that golden-orangey-Amber is really awesome. It's not as bright as my wife's purple saber, but I still like it better. Picture for comparison, Bld-org vs. Amber :

Hi grokostmipy,

Congrats on a nice saber. I'd be happy with that saber in either colour!
And if you put these two pics in the Saber Selfies section you will be Aletani's friend for life :lol:

kind regards,

For Tyeth
(P.S. Your X-Wing Lego in your original post reminds me of my ASP design called DAMERON, nice collection all round!)
