That thing is very impressive! Do you even have a table big enough to play this monster on?

Hi squeek. Nope, this one is being built for its pure beauty! Im planning on making him an Iron Warriors theme. His going to be so pretty. Fortifications on his shoulders and those lovely black and yellow shevrons with the lovely silver gray blackish color. Gonna be lovely.

I'm currently busy with the upper legs with their respective mountings. This will also introduce another weight bearing join problem but the engineers here at Titan Exertus will most assuredly sort it out!

Enjoy!

Update time!


The hip of the titan. This will be the central part of the lower body assembly and will carry a lot of weight as the main hull and the two legs attach to it!


Look, a square! This is part of the leg mount


This is the upper leg and will transfer the weight down to the two feet. Because of the funny angle that these pieces will be joined to the feet and the hip I'm worried that the joins will not carry the weight!


Hip assembly


The progress so far!

I'm now working on a way to get the legs to stand out a bit and not be facing straight forward the whole time. Even though this is a machine I would like to add some sort of natural stance to it. The next update will show the complete lower body assembly done. Hopefully it looks nice!

Enjoy!

Ok update! 6 days later and still it wont look like much. Did some detailing and had a hectic time getting the hips mounted on the legs and I really do hope it will carry the weight!

I'm currently out of mats and need to buy some more (quite expensive here in the good ol SA) so waiting for the cash to appear in my account! So without further mucking about, here is the bottom half of the titan.. DONE!


The waist armour. You will see that the armour plate miraculously transformed from black to white o_O I tried another material which was cheaper. Didn't work


Back view


Scale view


And another

Next up is the main hull. But first i need mats!
Enjoy!

Hell that is ace, can not wait antil it is painted, but i think it would take a month

The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.

thnx for the comments Green Knight. Yeah Im also looking forward to that! Im already thinking of a Iron Warriors type scheme unless I can think of a way to "extend" the Black Legion scheme. The glory of that scheme for me personally is that you base the model black and then just do some detailing with the gold, silver and so on. Just making the titan black and detailing in gold wont look to great...

But liek i said, will see when i get there. Just focusing on getting it done!
