scratchbuilding a emperor class titan @ 2016/01/20 14:57:31


Post by: bobbuilder


hi, wanted to build a large titan for some time and started to build one last year which due to several reasons i had to put on hold but now starting up again, i'm using lots of games workshop panals, guns, plasticard, plastic rods and anything else that looks like it will look lifelike, my aim is to build a very detailed titan with working led's, so here goes
the feet have nearly been done, made from GW aquila fronts, imperial sector windows and lots of scratchbuilt pieces, the base of the feet look thin but this is going on a diorama base so it will look like it has sunk into the ground, most of this wil be built over standard household pvc pipe with nut and bolts through to stop twisting when connected, the bottom main body again from GW windows which will all have stained glass window effects when painted, the rear panel is going to be for detailed engine/generators, so thats where i am upto, more updates as i go along, thanks

First off, this is looking absolutely amazing so far! Seems like the whole monastery look is going to fit right in with the 40k aesthetic. I feel like most attempts at something like this are lacking in detail and ultimately wind up very blocky, but it looks like you are adding detail in all the right places. I am very excited to see how you go about making the engine in particular.

As you mentioned, the feet do open the door for some concern. I feel like they should have a little more vertical bulk and maybe some hydraulics at the connecting points. Just my two cents. Keep it up!

thanks, i really want to give each portion as much detail as possible, a big project like this deserves it i think, i've spent some time getting all the weapons i wanted and have made a start on the fortress top which again will be GW panels

managed some detailing on the engine/power sources, used a old computer fan and cased it, cut down some GW small generators and added plastic rod, the ends i cut off i used as rivets on the fan casing, more GW panels and pipes, handmade rivets and i think starting to look good, under this on plastikard panelling are going to be 2 large generators and more pipes, tubes etc, above will be some more panelling and anything that i can find that looks good, thanks for looking

thanks for the coments, agree with the fan center and found that cutting the symbol from a GW manufactorum panel it fitted perfectly and improves it 100%, albeit a nightmare to cut pictures to follow

got some feedback about the fan center being plain so cut a mechanicus symbol from manufactorum panel and it fitted perfectly, looks 100% better thanks for advice, also felt the end of the generators wgere i cut them did'nt look good so removed the pivots off bastion turrets i have and add them to the end and now looks more complete, thanks for looking

i won some bastion upgrade sprues on ebay so a couple more cannons for the titan, more comms and 4 bastion turrets, looking at the front windows they lent themselves to the turrets so removed the pivot points and fitted to side of windows and filled in with milliput which will be filed down in due course, cut the sights down to fit and the a couple of the light offcuts used on ledge above and added some rivets, think it looks good now, thanks for looking

The PC fan is absolutely wonderful. The details you put on it really helped. Please get us a size compare with another titan or knoght when you are finished.

Wow.

Judging by the higth and weight going with a straight bar for the leg join rather then a diaginal may end up bending it or worse yet snapping the joint.

thanks for the comment, i had thought of this but seen a similar idea on another forum and they had twisting problem but used bolts through pipes to stop this, the pipes are plastic welded aswell so hopefully it will hold up, did'nt seem a problem on dry run where i am at now so fingers crossed

The problem with most titan scratch builds is that, no matter how good they are, they tend to lack the smaller details and intricacies that should cover the damn thing, for example rivets, panels, etc. and therefore tend to look a bit boxy. However this one looks set to capture the look of an actual emperor titan - reminiscent of a transformer who's alternate form is a full sized cathedral.

Love it! Can't wait for the next pics

so it was time to fit the stained glass windows, these were on clear plastic but did'nt get the effect even with the leds so put some cream card backing and looks better, pictures make it look brighter than is, had to paint the windows as wont be able to access them which gave me the perfect exscuse to have a go at my new airbrush and compressor my missues bought me for christmas (she just does'nt know she did ) good way of getting used to it as never used one before, laid the base coat on and some chipping, more weathering and gold detail can be done later, the 3 small windows below with no stained glass windows will have basilisk turrets sticking out of them, going for a dark green look, thanks for looking

did'nt really sit down and plan it, a lot of it is in my head and made up as i go along, i do have a general idea of how it is going to look, i had seen several on various websites etc, only seen a coupke that where detailed enough for my liking and had always wanted to build one but with lots of detail, i had started building the emperors palace a coupe years back but gave up when i realised how big it was going to be so used all the building parts off that plus picking more on the cheap from ebay and cleaning up, also bought the guns that i am going to usefrom ebay, thanks for comments

He's asking which class of Emperor Titan, Imperator-class, or Warmonger-class (the difference is size, since the actual design is freeform in this case).

Call it the Aedifex Exitailis, a Bobbuilder-Pattern [Insert type]-class Emperor Titan.

I like it. Thinking its a war machine so any available real estate that can house a gun would be used. Even if it does conjure up phallic imagery.

Are you going to use the Titan in a game? That would make for an amazing battle report. Not sure anyone would have enough firepower to take it on. But I would happily throw everything I own against it.

I have changed my mind. Rather than a battle between this guy and something unworthy. Do a battle report of troops moving through it.

so after a small break i decided to start dry fitting and making the central section between space marine statue towers and i rememebred i had a emperor of manking statue that was going to be a centre peice for another defunct project and thought it would look cool intergrated into the fortress, putting it between the tower with foamboard brick walls and then i can build back for support for aquila tower and each side of this to rear i will be able to fit a landing pad and large communications building, thanks for looking and comments welcome

That is such a great model I feel it should sit proud of that alcove, perhaps even with another level to the base He's on to raise Him up higher and make the Emperor more visible.

The tops of your towers have no roof access. Maybe add an armored roof exit or a floor hatch? I like what you've done with the space marine statuary in their recessed alcoves. That's really quite inventive. Overall your build looks like a massive undertaking. Keep at it; all projects can be finished if we strive to complete them.

If I may make a small request, it would be useful if you put a random 28mm model next to some of your shots because it is really hard to keep in mind the enormous scale of some of these shots compared to the rest of the game. Thank you and keep building.

I really like the quad guns in the alcoves. I think you are really capturing the feel that not only is it an amazing war machine that it also serves as a chapel of sorts and possibly is more symbolic than functional. Amazing progress so far.

as expected when i placed it on body it bent backwards a touch, my solution to this will lay in the base as my vision this comes from the beginning of the terminator film where the terminator walks through a ruined city with thousands of skulls on the floor, one of the buildings will support under the body at rear which means i will have to make the base before attaching fortress and casting hundreds of skulls i'm also going to have to build the fortress support body up a bit to distribute the weight better and for a decent sized head

Do you think it will be done in time for Adepticon? Maybe youll face off against the one I plan to build for it. Impressive you used GW kits almost entirely.

hopefully I can get some more done on the beast next few weeks one thing I did do is repurpose a small pallet to make the board for the base, will also have to reattach rivets that have been knocked off

used some air dried clay to build up earth around feet to give illusion of weight of the titan with feet sinking into ground,

Looking unbelievable based up. Any chance you will attach a few models fighting in and around its feet when finished? I think some Skitarii would be very fitting.

thanks archer, yes got to put a ruined admin building on it which will help support the beast and thinking of making the base as diorama
