It's been six or so months since this Emperor Titan took a header (fortunately without sustaining much damage) and it was, at the time, inexpedient to reassemble the completed components.


When we try to recreate our own titans based on this thread, are we allowed to skip the "dropping from height" step or is it essential?

It's an important part of the 'weathering' process. It simulates Titan-to-Titan combat damage.

Looks great!! Very awesome!

But I think that the arms extend out a bit too much. In the artwork it looks like the weapons are pretty close to the body, not that far.

Blackadder, I think I've said this before, but you keep proving my point.

You are a special kind of insane taking on projects like this... and thank the gods for it.

CHAOS! PANIC! DISORDER!

What a beast! Always loved the "titans with a cathedral on top" schtick. Great to see it with a scale figure.

A Crash Test Dummy:

Is building this Titan.

I wish I could blame this on the cat or something but instead I am making inroads into stupidity.

I was going to show the interior with the positioning plugs I have been working on for the past few days but instead here we see a pile of rubble which was the inner levels of the interior.

Fortunately its not all as bad as it seems in spite of falling the same 5 feet again in much the same trajectory as the previous fall a couple of days ago although the computer chair did not intervene to soften the mishap this time so a few items actually did break this time.

As I type the glue is drying and most of the damage is repaired (I'm getting good at it by now)

Anyway, with hope, I'll be able to photograph the aligning plugs later today.

Crikey!

I think you are getting to the point where you need a scaffold to support that thing in construction!

In fact, judging by the number of falls, I think you are past that point

Quarter Galleries:

For lack of a better term this is the area I'll be working on

The images are pretty much self explanatory; I'll be framing out the "Quarter Galleries" with cut Florescent light panel waffle diffusers purchased at Home Depot.

The panels are made of very hard and brittle styrene plastic but are plenty durable for framing and is cheap compared to hobby shop styrene. About 4 feet long and about 2 feet wide metric users can do the math....

It Fits:

It's going to take a bit of alteration but the rear panels fit.

And although I'll have to change the shape of the galleries a tad it will provide me with an exterior promenade for the upper echelon Adeptus Mechanicus

Back to the interior I'm about ready to install the ceiling support beams that so dressed up my Warlord's interior plus the upper gallery handrails and of course the Tech Priests altar to the Machine Gods.
