Thread: Blackadders Fully Articulated Warlord Titan

    Default Blackadders Fully Articulated Warlord Titan ''Luteus Vexant''

    Okay so here's the deal, I photo-shopped the image and made a static front view that prints out a model exactly 24 inches tall (On my printer using my editor's print graph I hasten to add). I'm satisfied that this is viable height for a Warlord towering almost 2.5 times the height of a Warhound.

    Now that I have the overall height I'll remove the armour and draw in the structural detail.

    BTW that's 24 inches to the lower margin of the image because we mustn't forget the foot pads.



    I calculate the center disk of the foot to be about 3.625 inches in diameter.

    The octagons are the center of the foot pads and are 2.0 mm thick and about 5.0 x 4.5 inches the larger boxes to the right are the front and back toes and the smaller boxes at the extreme left are the side toes. Both sets of these toes will be movable with hinges. The truncated toe pieces to the far right may or mayn't be movable as I haven't planned that far as yet but the disc will tilt side to side and the top surface will house a semicircular gear shape which will allow the entire foot to tilt forward and aft. This should afford a full range of motion to the feet. The semicircle will have a countersunk screw for the axis and a pal nut on the other side to provide the tension to maintain the various poses.

    Ambitious? yes;

    Possible? most probably,

    Crazy? almost certainly.

    Ah but if it works Priceless!

    I'm trying a different approach and actually planning my work before hand. That in mind I am not the neatest mechanical drawer but it is as true to scale as I need for gov'ment work.


    These images should print out 1:1 on 8.5 X 11 paper


    Automatically Appended Next Post:
    This is the size I can up with for a 24 inch Warlord titan. The entire foot will cover a Baneblade tank front tread to exhaust stacks and sponson to sponson which I believe is quite awesome enough considering a Baneblade is as large as my entire house i.e. 30 X 40 feet.

    I finished all the basic toes and suspended my printout above the feet and Damn me it looks right. The Greaves still have the side frames armour to be added and once the body is bulked up I think you would want a good solid base to stand on.

    This must be "easy" for you after building all the mini mechanisms in Lucie.
    This will kick butt when completed!
    =D

    But I have a question...
    do you think that the styrene will hold the weight of the complete titan with 24inches (almost 61cm's for the ones like me not familiarized inches) ?
    Are you going to make an internal structure?

    i like the feet, but the rest of the model, you really haven't put much effort into the rest even I can see it's only a piece of paper. You've only done half!!!

    On as serious note this could look amazing.

    Well that is part of the fun in building from scratch designing a structure that can stand the superstructure. The foot pads as the are right now can stand twenty pounds of pressure each (9+kilos) four times as much as I foresee the mass of this model.

    Well you really only need the feet the rest can be anticipated.

    This will be the "modern" (as of 10 years ago) Titanicus style Warlord, right?

    I always preferred the "classic" beetle-back type:

    But that's mostly nostaligia!

    No 'fraid not, this will be (hopefully) my version of the kick ass mother of all titans The Lucius Pattern Dave Smith Warlord.

    Back to business:

    Before I close up the workings of the feet perhaps a demo of the hinges I came up with to allow the side toes to flex.


    At this point they can flex up and down but once the box like hydraulic compartments at the base of the toes are installed upward movement will be restricted.

    I had the old warlord Titan from spacemarine and it was one of my all time face models. I loved all the weapon variations. Very keen to see this progress. Looks great so far blackadder. Same colours as Lucie or a different scheme for this when done?

    cheers
    will

    I can't wrap my mind around something this austere and majestic with a yellow mug and armour; I really like the Dave Smith camouflage as superfluous as camo may be on something 30 meters tall it just looks so right.

    Are all titans supposed to be in the same chapter (Is 'Chapter' right? Theres so much I don't know.)

    Anyway it's the weekend baby and I'm hot modeling-wise I hope to have the front and rear toes mounted today.

    Ah no, there are dozens of Titan Legion. Nothing's holding you back to come up with a colour scheme of your own.

    Well the weekend is over and in a flurry of productiveness I managed to attach one front toe With hinge as planned and it works and seems relatively strong

    Now the diagonal stabilizers need a bit of work but nothing extraordinary and they do allow the foot to flex so there's no cause for concern. I can't mount the back toes yet as I have to find 3/8 dia light springs to stabilize the disc; much better than my piston cylinder design, a suggestion from Zathros, a Moderator on another forum and to whom I say thanks.

    Blackadder, how much superglue do you get through? Or do you have some sort of glue gland where you can lick the edges of your plasticard and it sticks with gluey spittle????

    Well there's your problem; You don't use Superglue on styrene you use an acetone base solvent such as Tamiya Thinset , or Ambroid ProWeld , Or Testors liquid Plastic cement. and at the price of this stuff I only wish I could secrete it.

    I also don't use superglue on styrene and acrylic.
    I use chloroform...
    it melts the plastic and when it solidifies. the two pieces are like one!
    It's very kick to melt and to solidifie.
    It's cheaper then the other stuff...
    but it's not easy to get.
    You can buy it in pharmacies or directly in the laboratories that produce it.

    "Well there's your problem." is an expression to amuse in the U.S. oft repeated on TV etc. Would that I could obtain chloroform but it's hard enough to get acetone.
