Pure Gold:

Gold is where you find it as the old saw goes and you find it in the least likely places. I was in a variety store a few days ago and found these Hair bands 4.76 MM (3/16 inch) diameter that are ideal for the canister conduit.

I felt the image conduit aesthetically too large of a diameter.

I have used these before on my Warlord and my Warhounds but those were only 3,0 MM (1/8 inch).

If I could find 6.3 MM (1/4 inch) that would be also of use. I'll keep on looking.

Whilst we have the head apart again I can show the cockpit which is coming along quite well.

Working on the interior is much easier if you can remove it and reinstall at will so I work with a detachable floor.

It also makes it easier to paint if I ever get that far.

Great eye spotting those hair elastics. I know the next time I'm in dollar tree, I'm going to go take a look for pipes for terrain building.

Age of Sigmar: Skirmish looks compatible with 8th edtion 40k. Doing Skirmish in both the Dark Imperium and the Mortal Realms!

Glad to be of service

The Fearful Symmetry:

As most of you know I rarely measure when producing my work. Therefore symmetry is a problem for me as revealed in the image below. The face shield is canted a degree or 2 counterclockwise which is readily apparent in this head on image.

Of course no one will be standing full dead on eye level with the construct so I may let this discrepancy slide.

The Low angle view seems to hide the flaw.

Now for the crux of this discourse; the conduit run to the ear pieces.

http://i.imgur.com/W69lm36.jpg


Magnets hold the ear disc on with a fender washer to take up the gap.

http://i.imgur.com/hKHuYWM.jpg


And a 5 inch scale for reference to the size of this, seeming, never ending construct..

Aha! Ha! Ha!

Fun and games boys and girls, fun and games. Thanks to an andante admirer I've a new direction to follow gleaning the best from all info available. I've managed to begin the mid-waist decking and observation platform.

I truly want a railed promenade deck on this beastie and a fully articulated neck as well so letting you all in on the ground floor of this is a bit daring especially if I fall short but this is how I work; off the cuff.

We'll see how far I'm off the mark in a few days.

Mid Waist Deck:

So today I started with the mid waist deck and already I have an improvement.

http://i.imgur.com/CkT8L9E.jpg


Unfortunately after I glued in the walls but I came to the realization quickly enough to remedy the anomaly.

http://i.imgur.com/qQz0lrU.jpg


I'll leave to you to guess what I found wrong but suffice it to say the construct lacks panache.

http://i.imgur.com/SWmCG0P.jpg


I'll have it corrected tomorrow so you'll see if you guessed right.

Ciao.

This Will Happen:

I've never felt so confident in a project as in this one.

http://i.imgur.com/o1XeD88.jpg


The mistake of last night bore fruit in that I did not have to rebuild the turn table piece.

http://i.imgur.com/NFr0iQZ.jpg


Even the Mid-Waist Platform is the right width for the hips

But Lord please don't let it be that the head is too small :D

First Engineering Deck:

Situated below the reactor bay and the command deck this room contains (maybe) the electronic and navigation equipment plus the Adeptus Mechanicus altar and tech priests. I'll figure it out later once I get the other decks laid out.

http://i.imgur.com/9ncdXOy.jpg


Below are the inner walls of the deck and the center reactor core.

And the deck as it stacks up on the titan pelvis block again subject to change as i am not sure how much detail I should add to the top of the pelvic block.

Hanging Knees:

That's what they are called in shipbuilding They support the deck beams and are usually curved. In this case I shall leave these flat until I see how the rest of the detail manifests itself.

Since I seriously have no plan at this stage other than the black and white video captures and this beautifully rendered 3D image I shall be taking what I deem best from both.

http://i.imgur.com/jxlQ99A.jpg


I changed the rear panel from round to flat so I can show the interior space.

I do like the idea of the railing and balcony and will try to work it into the design just so i can display my Tech Priests.

There are some good pictures of the actual miniature of warmonger titans if you look in Google images, some pics have a good close up of the torso and they all appear to have little heads, so I wouldn't worry on that score, Stirling work keep it up
