The feet, legs, hips and waist skeletal structure were all cut and built from plywood to give the lower half solidity. The feet where built into the base to give it extra solidity, and the lower section was then slotted into that and fixed with 'No More Nails'. The torso-skeleton was constructed from a series of 1.5cm plastic pipes. Over that was fixed 5mm foam-card to build up the actual body of the titan, finally adding a card skin. Same with the legs. The Head was a complete scratch build by a key-timer at the store called Ben (He deserves all the credit for this baby - he spent blood, guts and many, many hours on this - kudos to Ben!!!) Same again for the weapon systems - 2cm pipes built into foam-card boxes. The multi-scatter on the top-left shoulder hard point was made from bundles of drinking straws with a box built around them - all the shoulder hard points rotate by the way Finally, wires and gubbins were added around the hips and head.
I would post up the the plans for it put they were literally a half dozen rough sketches of what we wanted with a few measurements on the crucial areas, then we simply went for it on vet nights (and a few others - Ben was there till 4 am on the day of the Apoc release getting it ready)
I'm glad you like it - I'll pass on the kudos to Ben and the other guys. More work is being done on it - icons, stain glass, banners and purity seals etc, etc. If you want to see it, pop down to the Plymouth store anytime if you're nearby.
I realize that this thing would literaly kill most armies but if it were played agenst me and my friends in an apocalypse game we probly wouldn't flench...i know its impressive but wouldn't it just be easyer to pay the 70-80 points/bombardment for a standard bombardment play so as to cover over 80% of the board for any were from 4k-10k points/per turn? i prety sure that that thing couldnt survive almost 150 orbital bombardments centered on its head. To call those off just simply stick a leader in a drop pod...that gives you almost 5-6 turns to use up your points, sure if you dont kill 'all' of them there will probly be only broken and battered units left wich you could verry easily take out with 4-5 units of space marien vangard and maybe a terminator, dont forget though keep a d.p. for your chapter master and leave him in the middle, that way they have to fight threw almost 9 storm bolting drop pods to get to him and make it so that you cant call off some re-enforcements or another orbital if you have the points left.
...wow...i dont know if i did the prospectives right but is that peice almost 4.5 feet tall and has gun barrels that are 2.5 inches thick? if so that means in prospective that thing would be fireing off a round with a radious nearly 2640.5 feet...thats enough to take out a football feild with a single shot...so...figuring 5 feet per person...thats almost 15k casualties per shot if you where in unit file and sholder to shoulder...wow...i would realy hope i was in the ships orbiting...ofcorse that thing could probly shoot a round into orbit...that realy would suck...
