Just to few more images to round out the week.

Top view:

Legs sprawled in the classic Reaver stance:

I love this pose, it seems to say, "Go ahead, make my day."

What's Latin for, "Dirty Harry?"

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Looking up; well because the hip bolts loosened:

No time to tighten them as I have another Holiday commitment................

I hate this week.

Badass. That's all I can really say.

Loving the photo from yesterday with the titan leaning back on the chair; it looks like an old man who's legs are about to buckle beneath him. I think he needs a hip replacement ;)

On a more serious tip, the whole project is looking badass. I suppose I'd best chuck some rep at you...

I'm sure there is innuendo along with that comic strip somewhere, the guns aren't finished are they? They need more armour don't they? They look a bit small atm

I made the guns purposely with a smaller caliber because it looked more realistic that way

The side armour on the guns gets another layer of spaced armour that is 1/4 to 1/3 times longer which should give the impression of larger ordinance.

I promise, when the bolt installations are finalized it will stand without support.

gd gd, I thought so, well I thought it needed more armour, I know nothing about guns except the very obvious and that England made ones better then anyone elses until the 20th century :p

As for him standing up is it nuts and bolts that keep him upright? If so does he have washers on the joints to help keep it all together?

It's been great watching this evolve as it has, from childhood, sort of skipping adolescence because I'm lazy and seeing its head finally take form. It will be fun to see the finished product. Keep it up.

I disappear for a few weeks and come back to see this!

Stunning stuff mate. Simply mind bending in its brilliance. And itd not even finished!

Have some rep.

"I refuse to prove that I exist," says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing."

"But," says Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED."

"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

Awesome as always. So now that the head is nearing completion, what next? How many more weapons mounts does a Warlord have?

The chest plate is the last major external component. Then the skirt of the carapace needs amending to clear the main guns in certain positions. The stanchions of the main guns need more detail likewise all the front armour on the carapace and main hull. The under carapace detail windows and access panels to view the interior, the interior of all three decks and the cockpit, leg hydraulics, spaced armour on the greaves............ The list seems endless.............. Oh, the shoulder mounted twin turbolasers and the lighting.

Now that's the difference between a Blackadder Plog and a standard one, the details, the lists, the determination to get it right rather then done
