That has to be a record... has there ever been a bigger 40k scale model built? I think not...

These complex structures are amoung the most difficult I have built for this Titan. Considering they will have to bear little weight in comparison they are extremely over built.

Compounding this the corner towers are octagonal in shape. This does not lend itself readily to the square grid material I have chosen for the substructure. Compensations in the structure have to be made to make the cross section conform to the octagonal shape.

The top of the Barbicans will have either spires which will increase the height to around 60 inches or AA laser cannon emplacements which will decrease the height to somewhat less; about; 54 inches as far as the Barbicans are concerned.

The main Keep will be another story.

Are you gonna have a defence laser as well as in the original Epic model?

As far as i can tell, it's a kit-bash/scratch-build by a guy named Dave Andrews..

Edit: A Google search for "Assault on Magnir's Crag" will give you some more pictures

So what is the cannon called; I'd just as leave not build it from scratch?

It is a defense laser scratchbuilt for a GW mega-battle in the first Apocalypse release. Most of it is constructed from GW parts (like the FW flak turrets and the old Cities of Death tiles) but the laser itself is scratchbuilt from PVC pipe and gubbins. GW provided rules for it for awhile for those who wished to scratchbuild their own.

Love it, Beautiful work. I'll be copying it if you don't mind

As you may have gathered I'm single. Who else could dump thousands on stuff I should have outgrown ages ago but hey, I love working on this stuff. Prior to this I built 18th century American warship models plank on frame wood..... but that's for another area of FB

I find styrene a much easier medium to work with and my son was an avid player so Dad obliged him.

I spent the better part of the week building the components seen here. That and my current occupation of President of my Condominium.

The octagonal column center of the image above represents my third attempt to make this part, successfully (Finally) I might add. The secret was, "there are no shortcuts to a quality representation." Eventually I must learn that.

The image below sow the basic work of the remaining seven columns waiting in the wings for the success of the first.

My apologies for the crudeness of the construction appearance but the basic shape is all I need for the present. The polish and detail will come later.

Oh, feel free to use it!

That design is not mine- it is from a GW walkthrough article explaining how they scratchbuilt the laser for the Apocalypse battle report.

Corner Towers Done......

The basic octagonal structure that is. There are still two levels of surface detail to apply but aside from the AA cannon emplacements this will be the height of the Imperator version of this Titan.

I'm so confused as to what the seemingly interchangeable names and classes of the Emperor Titans. Initially I set out to build a Warmonger version to match my Lucius Warlord and Warhound (seen here for scale). Lucie was my first major scratchbuild project and she is slightly more robust compared to the Forge World Warhound Version.

And finally a head on shot with the various Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii slated to infest the upper works of this monstrosity.

Um, they aren't even remotely interchangeable. There are two and only two classes

Imperator

Right Arm - Hellstorm Cannon
Left Arm - Plasma Annihilator
Up top - various smaller guns and a defense laser

Warmonger

Right Arm - 8 Doomstrike Missles
Left Arm - Vengeance Cannon
Up top - 4 anti-aircraft batteris, a radar dish, and a landing pad


You can see the two next to each other in this picture


Their loadouts are completely and utterly different.

That is under very old background info though- the same was true of Warlord loadouts then as well.

The most recent Emperor titan rules we have (for Apocalypse 1st edition) allowed the weapons to be interchangeable, and this is likely the route any future Emperor class models and rules would go, to match modern Warlords.

Composite Image:

I've been asked to put this together for an overall image of the work thus far.

Well it's too tall for the work console I have to stack the two major components, legs and torso, plus the whole thing is front heavy at the moment with none of the rear counterweights installed; I'm figuring the completed model will weigh in the neighborhood of two Bowling balls overall weight when finished; i.e.32 pounds or about 14.5 kilo.

https://i.imgur.com/aoOOzdX.jpg


The only other leastwise finished component is the Sunfury Plasma Annihilator which also cannot be mounted until the top and bottom body sections are together.

https://i.imgur.com/D6Tumkw.jpg


But my clumsy photo editing can give you a general idea of where I am heading with this construction.

This is some incredible stuff. Inspiring! Can't wait to see the final, jaw-dropping result.

It's probably you as well but the fittings are just snug not tightened, No point in exerting myself when I have to loosen these regularly.

1. If he kept them on the table the Titan would get jealous and destroy them.
2. You’ll notice they weight 10(kilos or lbs I’m not sure), but either way he needed to build up his muscles to lift the Titan currently.
3. Counterbalance....one day the Titan might need them.
4. They are vampire dumbbells and thus need to be out of direct sunlight.
5. I have way too much time on my hands and have run out of superlatives to address the real nature of this blog and the work of Blackie so I am just writing this to remind him I am watching this thread actively.

Emperor Titan Pelvic Block:

My obsession with having the option of posing my creations Have worked out previously, My scratchbuilt Warhound, Warlord, Thunderhawk and Reaver have the ability to be positioned an virtually any stance even beyond that which is mechanically sound in practice.

With this newest model I hoped to carry on the tradition but it did open up areas of concern. I designed this model to have no swivel fore and aft as in the Warlord and Warhound. I calculated the weigh of the model above the hips would collapse the hip joints were I to attempt functioning ball and socket joints as I did with the other two Titans.

https://i.imgur.com/c9K9SzG.jpg


With that resignation I began the Pelvic Block this weekend.

https://i.imgur.com/iFhj62W.jpg


My original Pelvic Block seen here was naively small compared to the 1.66 meters tall construction this has evolved to. My original estimate of the height was on the order of a meter tall.

Thanks for the auto append bump
Yesterday Morning:

The Pelvic Block was about 4 inches square. Now it is about 6 inches by 4 inches and the basic shape is established.

Such is the power and convenience of using this waffle material.

I really love this stuff. Not only is it cheap but it virtually removes the problem of squaring up and truing the angles on large constructions. I could never afforded to build this Titan without this material.

Mega Gargant, Face it, it's the only Titan that compares to an Emperor in size and power. Forge World has dropped the ball when it comes to Alien Races Mega Titans.
