Hello all! Now with 56k warning :)

My name is John, I hail from fenton MO. I'm getting back into 40k after being out for nearly 10 years. I play tyranids and space wolves, Approx 6000 and 5000 points. My other hobbies are Tuning and racing real cars mostly RX7's hence my user name. Metal work and fabrication, I have an automotive tuning shop. I also mess about with RC cars and tanks also rock crawling, I am an avid airsoft player and am co owner of a forum for airsoft.
I built a 40k scale emperator titan which stands almost 8 ft tall. I did this back before I got out. I still have it but it's been beaten pretty badly from several moves.
Anyway, glad to be back to the game and thanks for having me on your forum!

Welcome to Heresy,

Do you have any pictures of your titan in all its glory? I would love to see that in the Gallery.

Welcome back to the hobby.

Hey! Welcome to Heresy! Glad you joined the forums, seems like you've got quite an exciting life, do you have pics of your titan? I play airsoft as well, but I'm no pro at it, I'm just that amateur that goes to Walmart to buy $20 AK-47's. Do you have pics of your cars as well, I'd love to see em! Enjoy your stay at Heresy, hope to see you around!

I think those requests can be fulfilled

Here's the titan. Again please keep in mind that it is very old and war torn plus I never finished it. My new group of gaming friends want to help me finish it though

unfinished sensorium dome

Back of the body

Playable legs and feet

Plasma annihilator

Hellstorm cannon, a bit busted up

The whole thing

And with me for scale. I'm 5'7 it's 7.5 ft without the defense laser on top



My cars
Jeez they take up so much of my time, they're like my kids. They each take about 9 months to make lol.
Here's my AE86 in the build phase. Mind you I did all the work myself in my garage.

Here's me painting it

Finished car on the St louis riverfront

This one is my turbo rx7

Another shot (in the background you can see my turbo AWD talon and my other RX7

Heres my two baby's together at my friends shop (thought it made an interesting background, the guy running into the pic is my friend conan)

And this is an OOOOLD pic of my 73 cuda taken in 96-97, though it looks like the 70's lol This one I didn't paint, it came with that hideous paint job This one will be getting the complete rebuild job soon and will be gunmetal grey with a 340 and a 5 spd.

I have another half a dozen or so cars but no pics of them.

I play airsoft on a team and admin an airsoft forum. Airsoft is prolly my second biggest hobby, cars being first.

I hope I haven't bored you all with stuff some of you don't care about.
Any other questions you have feel free to ask.

Hello and welcome to Heresy Online!

Those are some great projects you got going there. Bloody hell, could you imaging painting that titan... I hope you're colour scheme isn't complicated

Enjoy your stay.

Jake.

Thanks for the kind words guys!
Corsairs: I was planning a white with goldish trim and some red bits but that may change now that I have paint guns! I was originally brush painting it with latex house paint. It was silly but it covered fast.
