Hammer

The hammer or war hammer was identified under the weapons category so in that case I based my size relation similar to that of the axe, as another object that can be wielded with one or two hands. The main difference in the construction of the hammer from the axe appears to be that it was assembled by insertion of a wooden handle into a stone instead of stone into wooden handle and then secured in place by methods that would appear similar to the axe with wrappings and possibly some form of glue.

The wrappings around the handle appear especially heavy on this weapon so I had to model quite a lot of straps (similar to the axe straps) while keeping them more tightly bunched together.  In ZBrush I added a bit of textures to the handle and mallet to help sell the impression that this object was made of thick wood and heavy stone.
