I know Plenty of people have built their own Warhound Titans before, but I've always been curious about the technical challenge of constructing something like this from scratch.
So I decided to give it a try, but I've only gone as far as building the body and head of the Titan, as this was mainly and experiment, and the chance to learn a few more plastic card techniques.

Here's a few Pics of the finished version,
I 'll be posting a load of WIP pics soon, so you can see how I built it.

This looks about as good as an actual Warhound; with some areas having more detail so - well done.

So this is how I started building the titan, the body begun as layers of foam board, which i roughly cut into shape using the Warhound Titan templates I found Online.
Neatness was not something I worried about at this stage, as I knew It would all eventually be covered with plastic card.

More to come soon.

Next stage was the detail paneling on the hull of the Warhound, which was made from 1mm Plastic card cut to shape.

The rivets on the paneling were made by pushing a blunted sculpting tool into the back of each panel, this created a raised rivet on the opposite side,
a very quick and effective way of making rivets.

I then started on the top engine bay, and engine bay hatch.
Attaching the hatch was little awkward, so you'll see from the pics below that I had to hire an assistant , (and very helpful he was too)

If anyone has any questions about how I made certain parts, or what specific techniques I used, then please, feel free to ask .

Awesome work buddy!

Great idea to use the polystyrene to make a rough form and then basically clad it out and add the precision and details!! Really cool....

And the end result is looking great!

As my father once said to me : You cant polish a turd... but you can roll it in glitter!
