Archaic Mauls are very broad and relatively thin hammers with a roughly rectangular head. The center of the maul appears to be featured after the face of a Warrior wearing an Elite Templar helm. The whole hammer is intricately decorated.
Dye affects the entire skin; the yellow "metal" areas dye strongly to the color applied, while the gray "stone" areas become darkened and slightly tinted, with the exceptions of black and white, which completely dye the stone. It appears to be slightly darker than yellow by default.
