Corner Towers Done......

The basic octagonal structure that is. There are still two levels of surface detail to apply but aside from the AA cannon emplacements this will be the height of the Imperator version of this Titan.

I'm so confused as to what the seemingly interchangeable names and classes of the Emperor Titans. Initially I set out to build a Warmonger version to match my Lucius Warlord and Warhound (seen here for scale). Lucie was my first major scratchbuild project and she is slightly more robust compared to the Forge World Warhound Version.

And finally a head on shot with the various Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii slated to infest the upper works of this monstrosity.

Composite Image:

I've been asked to put this together for an overall image of the work thus far.

Well it's too tall for the work console I have to stack the two major components, legs and torso, plus the whole thing is front heavy at the moment with none of the rear counterweights installed; I'm figuring the completed model will weigh in the neighborhood of two Bowling balls overall weight when finished; i.e.32 pounds or about 14.5 kilo.

The only other leastwise finished component is the Sunfury Plasma Annihilator which also cannot be mounted until the top and bottom body sections are together.

But my clumsy photo editing can give you a general idea of where I am heading with this construction.

this is looking great


this may just be the photo and the way that the shadows are being thrown, but the pipework connecting the two legs appears to be bending down slightly

At the moment it is only snug. Ultimately I plan to install set screws and snug the joints with a strap wrench.

Emperor Titan Pelvic Block:

My obsession with having the option of posing my creations has worked out previously, My scratchbuilt Warhound, Warlord, Thunderhawk and Reaver have the ability to be positioned an virtually any configuration even beyond that which is mechanically sound in practice.

With this newest model I hoped to carry on the tradition but it did open up areas of concern. I designed this model to have no swivel fore and aft as in the Warlord and Warhound. I calculated the weigh of the model above the hips would collapse the hip joints were I to attempt functioning ball and socket joints as I did with the other two Titans.

With that resignation I began the Pelvic Block this weekend.

My original Pelvic Block seen here was naively small compared to the 1.66 meters tall construction this has evolved to. My original estimate of the height was on the order of a meter tall.

Yesterday Morning:

The Pelvic Block was about 4 inches square. Now it is about 6 inches by 4 inches and the basic shape is established.

Such is the power and convenience of using this waffle material.

I really love this stuff. Not only is it cheap but it virtually removes the problem of squaring up and truing the angles on large constructions. I could never afforded to build this Titan without this material.

Oh man, I totally forgot about this thread - been away for a while.

Just finished reading all the updates - damn this is looking so awesome. I don't think I would have the patience let alone the skills to do something like this but I am happy to experience it by proxy.

Great work armata_PDT_37.gif

The best thing about our big-chain hardware stores is that they support local charities through having a sausage sizzle every weekend, [puts on yanksplaining voice] this means you can usually get a barbecued sausage with grilled onion and ketchup and/or mustard on a piece of bread for about $2.50 and a can of soda to go with.

The store provides the grill and the booth, it is staffed by volunteers from that weeks rostered group. The waiting list is generally huge, because it's a great money spinner for the club or association. All the money made from the day goes to the organisation.
