Subject To Change:

On the third or fourth go around for this area I've decided to scrap the interior courtyard and replace the central area with the Volcano cannon housing.

The two central compartments will now be connected by a nave and an apse at the other end.

Some of the upper deck will have to be amended to accommodate these new additions

Fun and Games.....

Makes more sense looking at the mockup. I hope the rebuilding won't be too bad!

From above the legs do, indeed, look short.

Have you considered getting some 'ground level' pictures to see if they still look short from that angle? It's quite likely things will look very different from the perspective of an infantryman...

Thanks for the replies;

Christmas Holiday

A bit of doldrums over the Christmas Holiday so yesterday I sheathed the surface of the towers on either side of the cannon enclosure and fabricated the square spires topping them. I hate making spires,the work is slow and tedious and the Emperor Titan has dozens of them in various sizes.

These are rather robust but the four corner compartments have eight spires each and the Keep roof has four as well and the nave roof  have four as well.

Just hunkering down and getting the job done is what it'll take.

But first the roof of the Volcano cannon enclosure. That'll be the fun part of this week's project.

Re: the legs, I always felt that this titan was rather squat looking anyway. I wouldn't modify based on the view from the back if the front is good.

It's been some time since hearing from Mr Hut; welcome back.

Regarding the leg issue; I'll wait until all the work is done detailing the complete Titan before I change the length of the thigh section.

Honestly I only ever come back here to see if you have any updates and to make myself feel bad about not being able to work on my own projects.

Something New:

I'm trying something new on the Volcano Cannon housing. 

We'll see if I can bring it off....

This first image after much trial shows the peaked housing of the cannon and the truncated upper works of the roof.

Next the sides....

Finally the installation of the reinforcing strips that will allow the curved roof corner joints some stability.

A Rainy Day:
I'm beginning to think I could effect a cure for a rainy day. This roof has exceeded my expectations and now I am wishing I took more pains with the preliminaries.

https://i.imgur.com/EA58kHV.jpg  

Aside from some excess amounts of glue that partially dissolved the surface (which I can rationalise as; "battle damage") the curved roof panels will be sufficient for my purposes.
https://i.imgur.com/UzTljqY.jpg  


Here is seen how the panels are held in place whilst the glue is drying.
https://i.imgur.com/jRKdUwf.jpg  

This building will be the first that receives the finishing details.

Central Dome:

The Central Dome will occupy the middle of the superstructure in this model  seen here in a top view image

Now I need to find the Aquila template from my old Warlord work????
