Funny you should mention that. My updates have slowed down because I have been working on installing a kitchen sink... in my house, not in the reaver. Jacuzzi in the head... now there is an idea.

I could totally pimp this thing out. Disco ball, strobe lights, Champagne room... oh yeah. Must resist temptation of slanesh...

LOL - you call it a Reaver, but I think that you know very well it is simply a "lowered" Warlord!

Well I was thinking it was going to be a productive week but I have been wrapped up in relatively mundane household projects and detailing is a little more intensive than I expected. Anyway here is the latest progress.

I have been working on the greaves:


So getting the basic form of the greaves was easy, but they are going to need a lot more work. I had to make them flexible until I figure out exactly how they will be attached (blue tack for now). Anyway once I resolve the attachment issue I will really need to stiffen them up. I will probably use a combination of green stuff filler and reinforcing spars on the back side. Also I am thinking about embellishments to dress them up a bit... skulls and swords I am sure. Obviously I will need some Knee pads and to bulk up the hip area a bit.

And on the other side I am working on interior detail:

Well I got a periscope, and the beginnings of a console, working doors to the outer observation deck and command platform. Nothing is fixed yet . I think I will add a damage status screen to the port side and maybe the comms console to the starboard side as well as a couple of wall consoles. Anyway that should pretty much fill this up. I am hoping I can get it together and get the roof on soon. What I have realized is that with 4+ more spaces to detail this could take a while. Anyway if anyone has comments/ideas I am interested.

Have you considered maybe somekind of waist-skirt to beef up the hips? If you could work them in such that they do not impede any other part of the model, they would both serve the aesthetic purpose of "beefing up" the hip area, and would serve the functional purpose of protecting the vulnerable hip and waist joints.

I'm envisioning something similar to the knee pads you want to make over the outside of the hips, coupled with the 40-K ubiquitous cod piece.

Yeah, there will be knee armor of some sort and I have some pieces to "beef" up the waist but I haven't quite determined the best way to fit it all together. I don't want it to look like it is just thrown on there. I will probably fill in the gap between the Reactor and the hips. Then I will put some separate shields around the hip joints. I will see if I can sketch up some concepts.

Your mastery of plasticard is quite impressive, and the fact that you're doing the interior is just plain nuts. Can't wait to see how this one plays out.

I am seriously impressed by your dedication. You have some skills with sketch-up too, great program eh? I use it for landscape design, and I plan to make some schematics for a 3-4 ft. Wraithlord using it in the future.

So your using styrene yeah, I have been looking into styrene because I have little or no experience with it. it seems quite hard to find at good prices. I was thinking of using PVC for my frame as well as for the basic armor. I have a lot of experience with PVC so I may stick with that plan.

For your general details you might want to consider using low-gauge aviary wire coated with industrial strength hot-glue adhesive. For a large project I was considering getting one of the big glue-guns that you see in some warehouses. The wire mesh along with the hot-glue makes an extremely tough yet responsive "skin". If I wanted I could probably make some bouncy balls . Do not apply the hot-glue directly to the styrene (or to the balls ) as it would obviously melt your masterpiece into a pile of gunk.

I think I understand the general idea of the ankles from the beginning of the blog, but I am sure I don't fully "grasp" the concept. Some WIP pics on that would have been very useful. I will have to take some time to read through the entire thread to see if I missed anything. The little "hydraulic" pistons are built with rubber washers as a piston "head"? Like a cork gun?

So the dragon and eagle heads are more lame than I had imagined, close combat head 1 (minus the weapon) and the custodian seem not too bad. Anyway, anyone looking for inspiration for scratchbuilds should check this page out. Lots of good images of old titan (epic) models.
