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.

This side view show the shape of the original Block

And the Turntable and Block temporarily installed on the Hips

This thing literally fell together last night......

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.

It's been a while since I've posted; we've got a lot of catching up to do....

https://i.imgur.com/TqR7uy1.jpg


This evening I tack glued on the corner pieces to the Pelvic Block just for the pictures shown here

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


So you are seeing in pretty much real time as the following sequence of images just as I assemble it for the first time.

https://i.imgur.com/n0TpSkm.jpg


The Pelvic Block is an unremarkable structure that functions primarily as decorative rather than functional.

https://i.imgur.com/NWYuI2S.jpg


All the supportive structure of the Pelvis, hips, and joints are encased in the Pelvic Block and are functional without it even being installed the same as with my Warlord Titan (Seen in the background of some of these images.)

https://i.imgur.com/NWYuI2S.jpg


The First image shows a basic standing pose and sad to say demonstrates that Titans as a group are pretty much dysfunctional when it comes to walking. Titans cannot lift one foot off the ground without toppling sideways because of the immutable laws of gravity. They may be able adopt a toddler's gait but the sight of these behemoths waddling across the battlefield would be ludicrous in the extreme and pretty much negate any awe and terror their size and power might engender.

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






Anyway It's fun to speculate about them in spite of their impracticality seen here in the Classic Titan stance.

Groin Secondary Detail:

Some of the most tedious repetitive structures to make are these Gothic style window frames. There are dozens of these and the sizes are almost all different so you cannot even set up an assembly line.

https://i.imgur.com/2U3lNvH.jpg


Of course some wag will say cast them or 3D print them but the truth is I cannot afford even the most primitive 3D printer and the casting process involves incompatible materials plus try as I might the casting always stands out as as well looking like the parts were cast.

No I just have to hunker down and endure the tedium.

Quite impressive - nice proportions.

Sorry to Disappoint:

But the work just done in no way is reflected in the minuscule advancement in the images proffered here. While the Groin construction must bear the mass of over half this Titan there is little to be seen indicated in the images presented here.

https://i.imgur.com/oQHm1nz.jpg


Front and rear projections are but somewhat faithful to M. Joazzz2's marvelous artistry for, as near as I can, I have of necessity taken certain liberties in the interpretation.

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


The hip area in particular need be somewhat more substantial than the rear projection image offered by Mr J.

May I be forgiven for the heresy.

With such an outpouring of interest I had my son come over to help me assemble the two components.


https://i.imgur.com/DH88myl.jpg


The good news is the legs can support the weight of the upper torso. The bad news is it is at the moment rather top heavy.

https://i.imgur.com/w4DmHxN.jpg


All that will change when I install the rear components and the interior. The model right now is 46 inches tall assembled with I'm figuring another 10 inches more to be added to the superstructure.

The author to scale is 75 inches tall and the 28mm scale Skitarii and the two Space Marines are added for comparison

An amazing piece of ... art. Haven't seen anything quite like it. Keep going, we are all anxious to see the citadel.

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.

https://i.imgur.com/QO3TFnH.jpg


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.

https://i.imgur.com/Q4hbfGG.jpg


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. :D

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....

Every time I take a look inside your thread, following the progress of your project I'm impressed.
The on top gallery looks fantastic, the statures really add the impression of an oversized engine. And the feet look better like some of GW's own terrain. Really stunning work. Keep it up.

Thanks for the reply....


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.

https://i.imgur.com/NIksL45.jpg


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.

https://i.imgur.com/LxtL1cI.jpg


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;

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

Glad to you were able to escape the heat. The towers look fantastic. The size of the deck and the scale marine really adds to the feeling of gigantic.

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.

https://i.imgur.com/NIksL45.jpg


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.

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 :p

Hence the title of this entry.

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

Moment of Truth

This is going to be Interesting.

I've learned a lot building this model.

It's the largest project I've ever tackled and I've had to innovate a lot of new techniques.It's been a year and a half since I made the first pair of turrets.

These new turrets so far are put the old ones to shame and it'll be interesting to see how they top out.

Corner turrets and the intermediate pointy things are basically done.

Great to see the effort you put into the details and small parts. It's looking really great.
