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.

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.

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. biggrin.gif

That's a brilliant use of those statues.

This is a lovely project. The only downside is that GW will kill off the 40K universe and port it into a Titan free zone as soon as you complete it!

they are about to release Apocalypse, so I find that unlikely.

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....

I love the 3 second delay whenever I sign into this forum. It takes that long for the round trip of electronics from the States to Down Under and Back..... What an age we live in!

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.

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.

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;

A bird's eye view of the Firestorm quad Laser Cannons base

It's all coming together just as if I actually had, you know; Some kinda Plan. Ha!

Secondary Towers:

The more I study the image of the Emperor Deck the more detail stands out on this marvelous 3D image by Joazzz2. I was aware of the smaller towers on the superstructure deck but I did not perceive there were ten of them until this week.

What was going to be a minor exercise in tedium has suddenly become a major pain in the arse.

Doubly so because I really hate doing these tiny pyramidal end caps.

I’ll keep praying for more rain - lol

The statues add nice nod touch to your already outstanding build.

Rediscovering the Wheel:

Before I found the rear view of this version of Joazzz2's Emperor Titan I modeled certain components of the superstructure deck including the corner hanging bastions or turrets. I made only two and while quite successful on completion I'd forgotten how I actually built them tongue.gif

Hence the title of this entry.

When I obtained the back view I found I needed two more.
