Thanks Old Man. :D

Second and Third Tier Greave update:

In no particular order but to present the detail as completely as possible.

This represents about a day effort figuring out how to make the ornate facets of the upper tiers

There's much more detail to come on these parts but enough for tonight.

And Now For Something Completely Different:

This past day I've been working on the final basic structure of the greaves and I took a break; just playing around with the spires

https://i.imgur.com/RZvgTA4.jpg


but the upper left tiers are basically complete and ready for the detail

https://i.imgur.com/QmY9E8B.jpg


The process was relatively painless although there were a lot of precision cutting to do I watched old reruns of the Monty Python series while doing the work and the time went swiftly. I never tire of their skits.

With the upper leg in place it's much better proportioned than I had anticipated.

https://i.imgur.com/AvJXxB8.jpg


So here's one leg complete and ready for detail Front view...............

https://i.imgur.com/7M6bBul.jpg


And Back View.

It's going to take me a couple of days to bring the other leg up to this level of completeness.

What A Difference A Day Makes:

24 hours ago I was struggling to finish up the second greave

https://i.imgur.com/sgyKUx6.jpg


which is now completed basically....

https://i.imgur.com/HCSsvdz.jpg


And in the meantime I also figured out how to make the main weapon mounts so they can rotate and elevate/de-elevate er depress.

https://i.imgur.com/1YSqFXy.jpg


Ah; raise and lower..............

The basic structure is fairly simple but plain as a mud fence. So we'll need to employ some ornate kickshaws, but first we need to build the weapons.

Doled Out In Dribs and Drabs:

Sorry to be doling these updates out in dribs and drabs but I want to show the internal structure of these yokes so those who follow can adapt the construction to their projects.

The yoke as you can see is a simple basic structure and I use the geometric forms to cut the angles precisely.

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


Whilst at present the structure looks somewhat crude. A bit of judicious sanding will bring everything into line for a lightweight strong structure that can handle the one kilo weight of each gun...........

https://i.imgur.com/Q7qL5Sq.jpg


And give me the range of twisting and elevation movement I require for this installation.

https://i.imgur.com/6b14ZZj.jpg


The scale of the Marine encourages me to think I can actually incorporate some catwalks onto these monster weapons la ''Odin.''

The Gun Mount Yoke:

Is coming up Roses. Not only is it the right size but when temporarily positioned on the Munitions arm it was the perfect height so it could be arranged without shimming.

https://i.imgur.com/0h1y3Kz.jpg


The yokes are pretty much done in their basic configuration

https://i.imgur.com/02zYFe9.jpg


So all that needs be done is produce two Emperor sized weapons to go with them

I'm kind of leaning toward Plasma weapons first.

Plasma weapons indeed good sir, the weapon is an iconic choice for the emperor class behemoth!

Annihilator Plasma Weapon:

The one weapon I have fallen in love with since I first became aware of the 40K Universe was the dual plasma Annihilator. Which was the main weapon of the Stormblade and the Warhound. It was the first scratchbuilt large weapon I built besides the relatively simple Volcano cannon and various main battle cannons for my Baneblades.

https://i.imgur.com/1HvYioj.jpg


That said I am going to try to build the fantastic over/under main battle annihilator for my Imperator as my first project. I believe this to be the most difficult of all the Emperor/Warlord weapons, the others being simple barrel shaped projectile and energy types. Oh, and I gotta make a claw.... if only for my own amusement (No snide commentary please.) :D

https://i.imgur.com/kEcYyVx.jpg


So here we have the central frame of the piece 14 inches (36,0 CM) long (subject to change) of a weapon I judge, at the present, will be between 18 and 20 inches long when finished.

Side By Side:

While measuring up the Sunburst Annihilator I compared my two scratchbuilts for size and relative scale. Overall I am pleased that my Lucius Warlord isn't very overshadowed.

Not so with my Scratch Lucius or Chaos Warhound. which decidedly toylike in comparison.

https://i.imgur.com/ZoeSi0h.jpg


This low angle view looks vaguely distorted and someday I'll take pictures with a more neutral background.

https://i.imgur.com/Z2KUDk8.jpg


And finally a group shot with my scratch built Thunderhawk overhead I'm missing only four of my other home made projects.

A Lucius Reaver conversion kit and three Baneblade main battle tanks.

Sunburst Annihilator plasma cannon:

So it begins

https://i.imgur.com/kEcYyVx.jpg



https://i.imgur.com/1HvYioj.jpg


Just to bring you up to date the above images are a repeat of a previous posting. But now we are fleshed out and contoured.

I just finished rough sanding today and I'm not even sure if the contours are symmetrical.

An hour with a belt sander has brought me to this point.

That waffle shaped plastic is fantastic stuff, Must be saving you so many hours in the construction process
