Default Titan Exertus

So there are Titan projects all over so it finally convinced me to try and make my own Chaos Warhound Titan.

This WIP will detail all the steps I took during the Titan construction. I used the template that is readily available online but if you like what you se, just pm me your email addy and I'll forward the templates.

Another reason I chose to add it online is for feedback. I would love to hear tips and tricks people used during their own constructions. Feedback on how the various components look, what changes you think I should incorporate and so on would be very much appreciated.

Here goes:
Foot contruction

The different components constructed directly from the template.

The toe. Four per foot, eight in total.


The toes constructed with the toe joint. I do not have a picture of the toe joint construction as they were horribly out of focus!


The foot. Two of these. They will hold everything together (of the foot) and is the base for the whole construction.


Ankle base. This base box raises the ankle joint a bit. It just looks better that way I guess.


The ankle joint. This goes on top of the ankle base that goes on top of the foot.


The ankle base, ankle joint and foot put together.


All the parts all nicely together for the foot assembly.


The foot with the toes glued on.

After this everything undergone some serious cleaning. Some soft sandpaper helped to sand down those edges and the hobby knife helped as well. One of the complete feet had to be rebalanced as it wobbled a bit. Nothing some cutting away and re-fabrication couldn't cure!

Enjoy

Quick update on the same day:


Lower leg.


The foot with the pistons added to the sides of the toes


The bracing pistons


The leg armour with braces.


This is the complete foot. I still have one more to go.

The next update will probably be when I have the two legs complete next to one another with the middle and upper leg parts glued on!

Enjoy!

@Randaris: Thanks man, its taking a while but its coming together very nicely. Kudos to the dude who did the template (cant remember his name now).

Last updates then its bed for me!


The middle leg piece. This piece is actually very tricky to stick to the feet and lower leg as the contact surface is small and at a angle. This area should take the whole weight of the titan. So in the end I decided to make the pistons here not just for show but to actually carry some weight!


The middle leg part shown with the pistons put in. The two legs finished and the joints also attached. It looks a bit scew but it gives the titan some character and this can be remedied to fit to the pose of the titan!

Enjoy!
