Even at 28 MM scale Battlefleet Gothic ships would be a mile long plus I'm not very impressed by the Battle Fleet design. They remind me of Roman and Carthaginian rams.

Quick Q, what adhesives are you using against the waffle-board sections, and how long do you set/clamp for?

Thank you kindly, and apologies if you've answered this already.

How will you ever get this titan to your FLGS for a pick up game?

I want to see the look on your opponent's face when you tell him it is only 499 points.

Does he need to actually take it to the shop? What’s the range on the weapon, he might reach it from his home

It's been a while since I've posted; we've got a lot of catching up to do....

https://i.imgur.com/TqR7uy1.jpg


This evening I tack glued on the corner pieces to the Pelvic Block just for the pictures shown here

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


So you are seeing in pretty much real time as the following sequence of images just as I assemble it for the first time.

https://i.imgur.com/n0TpSkm.jpg


The Pelvic Block is an unremarkable structure that functions primarily as decorative rather than functional.

https://i.imgur.com/NWYuI2S.jpg


All the supportive structure of the Pelvis, hips, and joints are encased in the Pelvic Block and are functional without it even being installed the same as with my Warlord Titan (Seen in the background of some of these images.)

https://i.imgur.com/NWYuI2S.jpg


The First image shows a basic standing pose and sad to say demonstrates that Titans as a group are pretty much dysfunctional when it comes to walking. Titans cannot lift one foot off the ground without toppling sideways because of the immutable laws of gravity. They may be able adopt a toddler's gait but the sight of these behemoths waddling across the battlefield would be ludicrous in the extreme and pretty much negate any awe and terror their size and power might engender.

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



https://i.imgur.com/TatN3Pr.jpg


Anyway It's fun to speculate about them in spite of their impracticality seen here in the Classic Titan stance.

I know they’d be impractical striding across the battlefield, but as the 40k universe is all impractical anyways I just toss it up to antigravity plating like they use on land speeders and such to help these beasts stay upright.

Also the Titan in it’s hanger in the background is just a great little Easter egg in the photo .

So much awesome on this thread. I’ve followed it since the start and it just keeps getting more and more mind bending! As a kid I remember seeming the Emperor Titans in White Dwarf and wondered how big they’d be in 40k scale, and now you’re providing the answer! You sir must be the Fabricator-General or something! Keep up this epic build!

Fabricator General, I like that.....

Groin Secondary Detail:

Some of the most tedious repetitive structures to make are these Gothic style window frames. There are dozens of these and the sizes are almost all different so you cannot even set up an assembly line.

https://i.imgur.com/2U3lNvH.jpg


Of course some wag will say cast them or 3D print them but the truth is I cannot afford even the most primitive 3D printer and the casting process involves incompatible materials plus try as I might the casting always stands out as as well looking like the parts were cast.

Might be getting ahead of myself here but what do you plan on putting in the window frames? I can almost see them being filled with skulls. Although that'd probably take several hundred skulls, possibly thousands.

Sorry to Disappoint:

But the work just done in no way is reflected in the minuscule advancement in the images proffered here. While the Groin construction must bear the mass of over half this Titan there is little to be seen indicated in the images presented here.

https://i.imgur.com/oQHm1nz.jpg


Front and rear projections are but somewhat faithful to M. Joazzz2's marvelous artistry for, as near as I can, I have of necessity taken certain liberties in the interpretation.

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


The hip area in particular need be somewhat more substantial than the rear projection image offered by Mr J.

https://i.imgur.com/BrSbX79.jpg


May I be forgiven for the heresy.

With such an outpouring of interest I had my son come over to help me assemble the two components.


https://i.imgur.com/DH88myl.jpg


The good news is the legs can support the weight of the upper torso. The bad news is it is at the moment rather top heavy.

https://i.imgur.com/w4DmHxN.jpg


All that will change when I install the rear components and the interior. The model right now is 46 inches tall assembled with I'm figuring another 10 inches more to be added to the superstructure.

The author to scale is 75 inches tall and the 28mm scale Skitarii and the two Space Marines are added for comparison

Waddayamean "Slow Progress" ? I just build for the fun of it, not the finished project. Once they're done they just sit on the shelf and gather dust.

Besides I took the month off to get the pool in shape for the Summer. I'll be back in the saddle next month or earlier. It depends on how hot the weather gets.

No slight intended! I was taking my lead from your 'miniscule advancement' comment. I can well understand the amount of work that must go into every aspect of this, even if it doesn't appear to add much to a casual observer. Would anybody undertake a project like this if they didn't find it fun?

Well I finally bit the bullet and purchased the single most expensive component(s) of this model. Namely the Sanctum and Basilicanum Cathedral pieces for the superstructure.

https://i.imgur.com/QO3TFnH.jpg


There may be those who think I've compromised but once I saw those statues I knew I had to incorporate them into the upper galleries of this Emperor Titan. It was the Sanctum that really put this over the top with the flying buttresses and sentry-like sculptures on the sides.

https://i.imgur.com/Q4hbfGG.jpg


Needless to say I shall be putting my own spin on these prefabricated appurtenances and cannibalizing the spare bitz to decorate the rest of the Titan to conform to the highly detailed Castle Keep.

At least now it can be said that I have officially joined the ranks of the 40K Converters.

I feel like those statues ought to be front of the model- they're so nice, they should be easily seen right away.

Thanks for the replies......

Hard To Find Time In the Summer:

With all the outdoor activity it's hard to knuckle down and make headway on these projects. Thanks for rainy days.....

Began the Superstructure Breast Works this week and finally managed to finalize the size of the Cathedral decking. I was off by about a centimeter overall but which will be easy to compensate for.

Below are two images from the basic half finished deck breast works....

Looking great Blackadder. Those statues are a really nice addition, and I assume they'll fit in great with all the other gothic decoration that I'm sure you'll conjure up.

Seeing them look pretty small on that upper deck is just another moment that reinforces the sheet size of this thing.

Thanks for the reply;

Dribs and Drabs:

But in these Summer months it's hard to not take advantage of the wonderful pool weather. Much too nice to be indoors working on plastic models.


But here's a few images to tide over until the rains return.

https://i.imgur.com/NIksL45.jpg


First the superstructure deck now has forward battlements and the blocks are the beginnings of the center corner towers which do not seem to have any offensive capabilities.

https://i.imgur.com/LxtL1cI.jpg


Extending the deck allows for spacing the "Firestorm Redoubts" and also gives room for the fifteen meter tall statues on the Citadel base to be seen more clearly.

Finally;

IIRC the corner towers did have some sort of gun. Hardly a major issue, I imagine each Imperator is a custom relic.

Point being if you want a gun on them, add a gun.
