Ye Gods, Has It Been That Long!

Over the past six years and four months since I started this project I've been repeatedly asked, What colour am I going to paint this beasty.

Well I've finally found a colour scheme I think will be befitting this endeavor.

It combines the understated mechanical appearance of a Lucius Pattern Emperor Titan with the garish opulence of the upper works.

The concept is credited to Joazzz2, the original 3D designer of the images I follow.

You can see I quite a bit of detailing still to do on the upper works before I commit to painting.

And the four spires on the superstructure will be "Vengeance Weapons Batteries" for aerial defense.

Are We Having Fun Yet!

It took me the better part of a week but I finally have 22 cathedral style window frames for my buttresses.

I cut them out from the panels of couple Basilica Adminstratum kits I had lying about.

Cripes! Blackadder Do you know what those kits are worth? 
Yeah, in point of fact I just purchased one on ebay for a hundred bucks free shipping ( I still need more windows and door panels.)

You’ve probably increased their value by adding them to the Titan anyway!

Thanks for the replies...

Octagons... That Feeling You Get When Things Go Awry 

It was a matter of disappointment when I found the turrets were hexagonal and would not fit the upper bastion assemblies.

Ultimately I had to make my own...

holy jebus man, 6 years, I still remember when you were building the warlord and the thunderhawk. Wow has time flied or what. This is a work of art bro, I love it. The dedication you have put into it is mind blowing. Ive been on a hobby break the last 2 years or so. I have a warbringer about 7/8th assembled (just needs the gun finished and the armour panels put on) and basecoated ive been kinda getting the itch to work on something but I don't know if I want to jump right back into the titan.

I also have a warhound I am putting together for a friend. I look at the stuff I want to do, then I look at the warhound....then I look at my stuff somemore then I feel guilty looking at my stuff when the warhound is still in pieces. Le sigh such is life.

This is mind blowing blackadder, im glad the local stores could donate polystyrene that stuff isn't cheap I am loving this bad boy. Like someone else said its like watching a child grow and age. Hell I think your warmonger is older then my granddaughter lol. But its so awesome to see. Its like a old friend you don't see much, but when you do you have a great time with them. The weapon arms look great, the whole thing looks mind blowing.

Also you can never expect the Spanish inquisition... I love those models

Keep up the amazing work. This is legend.

Welcome back Jabba.

Guess What These Are?

https://i.imgur.com/U9bu6Vk.jpg


Hints;

They're grey and gold.

There will be 32 of them on the model when finished ... yeah I'm making a couple extra and picking 32 of the best.

They are divided into 3 panels with 2 spacers.

There are two of them in the Emperor image below.

Corner Bastions,

In the past few weeks I've managed to complete hundreds of components out of thousands of bits on plastic.
 
I have far outstripped my budget and my original ambition for this project.

Seen below is my first trial assembly of the corner Bastion with its corner pylons each of with consumed days of tedious assembly.

The trim bound by gum bands on the left  contains 98 assembled strips each containing 8 bits of meticulously crafted styrene plastic.

https://i.imgur.com/1ARjLms.jpg


On the  right of the image is another bound bundle of trim 32 assembled strips each containing 6 bits of styrene.

https://i.imgur.com/pZI8z4u.jpg


I rebuilt the corner upper bastions to be more compact and began the upper gun mounts flanking the pylons.

I decided to take a break from the frantic pace and post an update while I regroup and begin completing the other 7 pylons and mounting them on the upper bastions.

Thanks for the replies,

Whew; well it took the better part of a month but I finally finished the corner obelisks. Literally thousands of pieces



But I think it was worth it.



I can't wait until they're painted gold and graphite and installed on the Titan's super structure.



The beauty of these modular constructions is that I can begin painting as soon as the sub-structures are completed....

To my satisfaction that is so there are the discrepancies to be dealt with.

But these are sufficiently done so I can begin working on the gun mountings on these units. it will be a release from the tedium as I only need eight gun emplacements. 

Piece o' cake.

I'm really looking forward to this project log.
The orbital defence batteries are screaming to be converted into titan weapons and I love how you approach the project. You 'think in scenery', this causes you to design outside-in instead of the usual inside-out.

This will hopefully lead to a supremely detailed titan.

Yeah, I've been totally remiss in posting new work but in spite of the tedium of adding all these bits and the time consumed it does not seem very much to report...

So we'll take it from where I installed the spikes on the corona.

This actually is a chaos feature but it looked so d@mned good I couldn't resist.

https://i.imgur.com/yPi1QhQ.jpg


Then I had to adjust the cannon emplacements to fit the new design otherwise all the new detail wouldn't fit.

There's a months worth of revamping to post but here's some tidbits to nosh on whilst I get some pictures together.
