A Week Vacation:

Doldrums, I could not think. I knew what I wanted to do but the process eluded me.

This morning I came up with a solution but it was my original thoughts, I just needed to hunker down and do it.

so first I needed the rear housings,pretty straight forward just a rectangle with a 45 chamfer.

I need to make the housings removable so the interior detail can be added later.

The model will have a wrap around balcony below the head so doors on either side for access to the weapons observation deck is needed.

All this is subject to change as the model evolves

Hopelessly Outclassed

I'm Afraid my Warlord will be hopelessly outclassed by this new addition to my Titan Stable which I project to be half again taller than the Warlord. About 40 inches tall or one Meter if you are into an inhumane system of measurment. :D

My new Workshop arrangement is better able to display my creations as I build which makes for a more inspiring atmosphere.

Spur me along as it were.

Sitting at the computer having these two staring down at me is a bit disconcerting. Almost accusatory in their gaze seeming to say, Get busy and finish this up.

The Razors Edge:

I'm trying to walk the tightrope between the two most interesting Emperors I've yet seen taking bitz and bits from each and incorporating in my model.

I've already departed from both in giving my 'head' a lot more play than either and it comes down to how tall this beastie will be.


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


On either side of the head are two balconies that I feel give purpose to the garish ornamentation yet still retains the Gothic flavor. True to my word I am attempting to make the build and ornaments as easy as possible so those so inclined may follow along building their own Emperor Titan.

http://i.imgur.com/b1cbeJV.jpg


We'll see how successful I am with these compromises.

Side Galleries:

On either side of the 'Head' there are these side galleries. I'm a bit disappointed in these but I shall probably leave them as they are because I'm tempted to put dual guns or lasers in the windows instead of my initial idea of stained glass.

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


Once these galleries are surrounded by other detail, they'll blend in better.

http://i.imgur.com/G0L4vLV.jpg


Still to come on these galleries are the ball turret gun mounts and lots of skulls and stylized eagles, but for now they will remain removable to ease amenability.

http://i.imgur.com/zh2NbZw.jpg


The above image probably mimics the drawing best and I feel my solution to what is under the 'head' is better that the nondescript python-like cable conduits in the video I assume just put there to fill the void.

http://i.imgur.com/RDmYM4F.jpg


Again a couple of Space Marines for scale.


And a high angle and side view shot to round out last evenings work.

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


Note the serendipity of the curved corbels which allow the head to swing side to side without interference by the galleries. Purely accidental I assure you as I'm not sure that the Emperor titans have that capability.

As with the Thunderhawk, once I began to personalize this construct I've begun to warm to it's intrinsic majesty and ignore the obvious impracticality of the monstrosity.

Great work, it's amazing to read through and perhaps one day I will follow in your footsteps - maybe once I've got a full maniple first though!

As usual, a continuous thread of great work! With regards to the impracticality of the beast, that is the same story as with nearly all warhammer vehicles and the source of a lot of debate, while I love the miniatures I do wish for some of them or parts there of to have some real world design style or scale but only for the reasons of my personal aesthetic taste.

Ha! You had me with "maniple" and I knew my first impulse was far off base. So it's a Roman unit of 120 men.

A Revelation:

After butting my head against the wall for the past few days I came to the realization I've run out of ideas for the front of this beastie. I've tinkered with CoD panels and cut and pasted said panels in various positions and nothing looks right.

http://i.imgur.com/P5AOD9w.jpg


Fortunately I have the rear elevation to fall back on, when in the doldrums work on something else, is my motto; too bad I quite forget it all too often.

http://i.imgur.com/1K0D9JX.jpg


No sooner did I turn the beast around than I came up with a plan for the front but I'll save that for next week and concentrate on the back.

Thats usually how it goes. but i think your logic is sound here. Take some time off and give your mind a rest from the front, its not like you've got all that much work left to finish thing thing off or anything....

Cripes! Now I know why I need such huge doors!

These Tech Priests are gianormous!

I don't know what this thing is supposed to do but somehow a Emperor Titan needs a body guard.

And a company of lesser warrior priests.

As you can see I have found a purpose for my balcony. Purely serendipity I assure you; I had no idea these creatures existed.
