Default scratchbuilt warhound titan

this is my warhound titan approx. 75 % done
pictured with the plasma blastgun and inferno gun
i actually am in the process of make the Vulcan mega bolter and 2 turbo laser destructors, i tried to put a chaplain in all pictures for scale







the arms are completely poseable and the torso can pivot on the legs

these are the pictures after i reset the legs, and whilst i was thinking about the physics of it, realised the hips were WAY to wide pictured with my techmarine for scale





i think it looks much better now and have begun detailing it
any comments, questions and suggestions are much appreciated


i actually have a plan to make two of these and a warlord

This is one of the better scratch-built warhound models i have seen. Really good job

I do like the fact that the legs are poseable. I do hope your going to put some pictures of this painted on here as this is a very very nice model.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

very clean building skills there. is this using the templates going around? i used templates that someone gave me and i was supprised just how small the thing was..... mine didnt turn out the best and i will definitly make another one. + rep for you mate.

with the 2 and the warlord, you should put a leash on both warhounds leading up to a hand on the warlord lol.

Looks very nice. How long have you been working on it? When you build the other ones you should take step by step pics and make a tut. Where did you find the templates? You should post the links.

Looking great so far but as always I have a few suggestions.

First the shin plates seem a little weedy. They may be just what you want and/or scaled to the FW model and really it's your unit so you can do what you want but I honestly think they should be a fair bit larger. They mainly look like they end to soon before the toes and as much as it might seem odd to present a bigger target with the sort of ceramite blend laminate titan armour uses larger plates dissipate energy far better and they cut down on the resonation of hits so larger shin plates would make the legs tougher in prolonged combat and better for kicking tanks like soccer balls.

The "pelvis" narrowing is great. Full compliments on this of course cause you turned a glaring visual annoyance into a purposeful mechanical beauty. I would still like to see the big actuation pistons on it that at least suggest a sort of "hip" flexibility which is something that is soooo important to balance robots that can't flex in their hips effectively never have a chance to actually walk.

The rest of it looks pretty good. I'd like to see how you are making the weapons switchable since you mentioned doing other weapons to a total of 5 so I doubt you are building 2.5 warhounds. I'm planning ahead of time to make my weapons "modular" for when I get two Mars Patterns for my Iron Warriors since at FW's price I wanna have as much bang for my buck as possible and also I'm working on designing a Warlord on the idea of it being a very modular kit with a base chassis then armour and icon detailing separate and weapons completely modular to the point you can build one Warlord and then kit it out exactly as you want then add any of the weapon types to your arsenal so it can fulfill any Warlord config role. I have a number of ideas if you are still thinking how to do it on your warhound or if you just wanna talk modular systems.

Also nice rally car pics in the background. : 3
