I think you need to rename your thread to Blackadder builds a warmonger titan and get rid of the "attempts", great work!

Curing a rainy day:

It's a far cry from this.....

and even further to this.

It is my hope to have fully articulated legs on this beastie although I will not go to the effort I went to with my Warlord giving the legs a "Toe in" and "Toe Out" capability. That was much too much and although workable I have never employed that feature when posing my Warlord.

Finally I can get a glimpse of what I have been working toward for these past few weeks; with the hip connect scaled to size, and the upper leg finally attached at the knee. I can now make some inroads towards an actual knee structure. I am now thinking of cutting the knee joint into the upper tier of the greave. which I believe will look much better.

Onward and Upward as they say...............

Ha! Well I wanted to set up the model to see if the sizes were in scale but the upper torso was too heavy to suspend over the lower torso and legs. I instead Photo shopped a quick composite to present here. First the image of the torso and the legs and then the green screen composite. The legs right now are like a house of cards so mounting the body on them is not possible.

As I said, the model thus far stands just over a meter tall (39.36 inches); a lot bigger than I had originally planned.

Reinforce and Detail Legs:

Today I began to strengthen the legs with the Armour and detailed the corner spires...

Stallmate

My local hobby supplier has let me down and I cannot get the large amount of strip styrene of a particular size I require. Normally I cut my own but even that did not produce enough.

But every setback has a silver lining as it forced me to work on detail I was putting off 'til later. Which ultimately was most gratifying.

It also relieved me of the tedious aspect of making eight of these constructs plus I am catching up on current Dinosaur theory.

Looking More Like A Wedding Cake

Everyday

https://i.imgur.com/5FR5BVh.jpg


A pains taking week and a lot of work but does it really reflect it; not so much.

The spires, Minarets, whatever mimic the 3D work by measurement but the spire points seem a bit squat.....

But in this image they look okay. Go figure.

Anyway I'll try sanding them down some more. After all I have almost a millimeter to play with.
