Flexibility of the Legs:

The first two images demonstrate the flexibility of the legs.

While not as articulated as my Warlord and Warhound it does have the ability to appear to be ambulatory.

The next images show the front and rear basic detail of the Pelvis.

It's been a while since I've posted; we've got a lot of catching up to do....

https://i.imgur.com/TqR7uy1.jpg


This evening I tack glued on the corner pieces to the Pelvic Block just for the pictures shown here

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

So you are seeing in pretty much real time as the following sequence of images just as I assemble it for the first time.

https://i.imgur.com/n0TpSkm.jpg


The Pelvic Block is an unremarkable structure that functions primarily as decorative rather than functional.

https://i.imgur.com/NWYuI2S.jpg


All the supportive structure of the Pelvis, hips, and joints are encased in the Pelvic Block and are functional without it even being installed the same as with my Warlord Titan (Seen in the background of some of these images.)
https://i.imgur.com/NWYuI2S.jpg


The First image shows a basic standing pose and sad to say demonstrates that Titans as a group are pretty much dysfunctional when it comes to walking. Titans cannot lift one foot off the ground without toppling sideways because of the immutable laws of gravity. They may be able adopt a toddler's gait but the sight of these behemoths waddling across the battlefield would be ludicrous in the extreme and pretty much negate any awe and terror their size and power might engender.

Anyway It's fun to speculate about them in spite of their impracticality seen here in the Classic Titan stance.

Enemies of man may laugh at a titan waddling toward them, until the face melting fire power lays waste to everything in the area!!!!!!!!! Cue maniacal laughter

Groin Secondary Detail:

Some of the most tedious repetitive structures to make are these Gothic style window frames. There are dozens of these and the sizes are almost all different so you cannot even set up an assembly line.

Of course some wag will say cast them or 3D print them but the truth is I cannot afford even the most primitive 3D printer and the casting process involves incompatible materials plus try as I might the casting always stands out as as well looking like the parts were cast.

No I just have to hunker down and endure the tedium.

Sounds laborious, why don't you just cas......, oh I mean.......never mind! I'm sure your inner perfectionist will not baulk at the challenge, and your fans will be truly inspired

For the life of me I cannot figure out why I have two accounts on this thread.......

Sorry to Disappoint:

But the work just done in no way is reflected in the minuscule advancement in the images proffered here. While the Groin construction must bear the mass of over half this Titan there is little to be seen indicated in the images presented here.

https://i.imgur.com/oQHm1nz.jpg


Front and rear projections are but somewhat faithful to M. Joazzz2's marvelous artistry for, as near as I can, I have of necessity taken certain liberties in the interpretation.

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


The hip area in particular need be somewhat more substantial than the rear projection image offered by Mr J.

https://i.imgur.com/BrSbX79.jpg


May I be forgiven for the heresy.

With such an outpouring of interest I had my son come over to help me assemble the two components.


https://i.imgur.com/DH88myl.jpg


The good news is the legs can support the weight of the upper torso. The bad news is it is at the moment rather top heavy.

https://i.imgur.com/w4DmHxN.jpg


All that will change when I install the rear components and the interior. The model right now is 46 inches tall assembled with I'm figuring another 10 inches more to be added to the superstructure.

The author to scale is 75 inches tall and the 28mm scale Skitarii and the two Space Marines are added for comparison

Well I finally bit the bullet and purchased the single most expensive component(s) of this model. Namely the Sanctum and Basilicanum Cathedral pieces for the superstructure.

https://i.imgur.com/QO3TFnH.jpg


There may be those who think I've compromised but once I saw those statues I knew I had to incorporate them into the upper galleries of this Emperor Titan. It was the Sanctum that really put this over the top with the flying buttresses and sentry-like sculptures on the sides.

https://i.imgur.com/Q4hbfGG.jpg


Needless to say I shall be putting my own spin on these prefabricated appurtenances and cannibalizing the spare bitz to decorate the rest of the Titan to conform to the highly detailed Castle Keep.

https://i.imgur.com/1RT7lte.jpg


At least now it can be said that I have officially joined the ranks of the 40K Converters. :D

Not to take away from the Herculean task of the Emperor titan but is there a chance you can show off that wonderful miniature of the "Nautilus", that was tantalisingly caught in the photograph
