|Old Man78||Not to take away from the Herculean task of the Emperor titan but is there a chance you can show off that wonderful miniature of the "Nautilus", that was tantalisingly caught in the photograph|

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. :D

|Old Man78||Fantastic really fantastic, that photo really shows the scale of the titan|

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

For the life of me I cannot figure out why I have two accounts on this thread.......
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.
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.
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.

|Old Man78||Sounds laborious, why don't you just cas......, oh I mean.......never mind! I'm sure your inner perfectionist will not baulk at the challenge, and your fans will be truly inspired|

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.
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.

|Old Man78||Enemies of man may laugh at a titan waddling toward them, until the face melting fire power lays waste to everything in the area!!!!!!!!! Cue maniacal laughter|
