    Welcome aboard and yes I've been working on this for about that amount of time. My usual styrene scratch-builds take 18 months to 2 years for completion. I foresee a minimum of two more years to bring this model to completion as there is a tremendous amount of fine detail to be crafted.


    Elsewhere on this forum you'll find my first scratch build; a Lucius Pattern Warhound appropriately named Lucy, a Lucius Warlord Titan a Super Baneblade, a Thunderhawk and a Lucius Reaver conversion kit that I put on back burner because I lost interest in that model when it was 90% done.


    I'll see if I can find the links


    Enjoy

    Two Weeks in the Making:


    At this rate it's going to take decades to finish this thing. Hardly the project for someone who's reluctant to purchase green bananas.


    But Hey; the fun is in the building and I did have fun creating these eagles.... Not! It was an arduous task principally because I hate repetition.


    So here's the result and I'm pretty pleased with it.

    All four sides have the same Aquila but each is an individual and I had to chose which one looked best on each side


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



    but for all my angst they all look pretty much the same.

    The bird's eye view(groan) shows them off the best.

    Guys at Forge World: Nah, we can't make a Lucius Pattten Imperator Titan, way to complicated.

    Eohippus:


    A horse is a horse of course, of course....


    Yesterday my better half said this looked like a dinosaur.


    Today she said it looked like an Eohippus.... Huh! What do women know.


    I think it looks like a stylized Aquila and I like it.

    And birds descended from Dinosaurs so I'm on the right track anyway.


    You wouldn't believe how much work went into this decoration:


    https://i.imgur.com/x2PKJsi.jpg



    Of course I also had to deal with a foot of snow in three separate storms this past week which is a lot for my area anyway.


    So I tacked the work temporarily to the center edifice and it looks pretty good.

    I'm going with it.

    Yeah; me too, but I faithfully rendered the bas-relief. Perhaps it will loo better when painted.

    Everything Is Roses:


    Even the mistakes are working out; almost as if they were planned.


    The 100.00 caliber (2,54 meter) quake cannon emplacement is coming along and should allow for a 45° elevation when completed. The two stylized Aquila fit the trunnion covers exactly and allow for the side sheathing. I fortunately did not cut of the outer edge.


    https://i.imgur.com/gAvY7Ef.jpg



    The forward façade has the look of a helmeted face which was purely unintentional.


    https://i.imgur.com/rClPAc8.jpg



    And the aerial view works as well.

    Is That a 200CM Cannon in Your Pocket?




    Or are you just glad there is an update?


    Anyway before I can go any further with the detail on the center module I need to rough out the cannon mount.


    https://i.imgur.com/Gt63PLy.jpg



    An old vacuum cleaner extension tube provides the basic barrel and I'll just trim it out with a sleeve to augment the details.

    A couple of more views to round out the post.

    It's Beginning To Look a Tad Cluttered:


    https://i.imgur.com/dHZK7X5.jpg



    I may have to widen the superstructure platform.


    https://i.imgur.com/xWTf2Fe.jpg



    This is not as drastic as it sounds because I've already widened the rear of the platform and extended it further aft.


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



    An inch wider would probably make all the difference


    https://i.imgur.com/dHZK7X5.jpg





    The central Tower needs to be further back.


    https://i.imgur.com/kQx5O4l.jpg



    The two flanking towers which give the structure a portcullis-like appearance hide the Aquila

    Holy moly that looks awesome the way it is shaping up! I really like those tiny dinosaur heads for eyes, er...I mean stylized Aquila, on the cannon housing

    Thanks for the replies.....

    These bas reliefs are approximately 2-3 millimeters thick and are a fair representation of the Adeptus Mechanicus Icon.


    Gone are the days when I use to spend hours sculpting bas reliefs to decorate my projects.


    Witness the effort I put into the pelvic block of my Warlord Titan:


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



    http://i.imgur.com/6ow9pMw.jpg



    I was searching through my archives for ideas on how to decorate the various chambers of this current project.


    Believe it or not here's an Easter egg I put on the soles of the Warlord's feet:


    More Skull-duggery


    The logo that is most detailed............

    The mirror is less further along:

    The thickness is at this moment 1,5 MM/0.060 inch Needs to be less:

    Close up reveals some fine cleanup is necessary:

    I have a question and I need some advice.


    I'm resurrecting my old Titan Hunter Thread because I need to learn how to do the Plasma Blaster blue glow on the plasma coils


    https://i.imgur.com/1PdH0Ne.jpg



    I have the much larger Coils on the Emperor Titan's weapon and I want to do a bang up job.


    https://i.imgur.com/PeQF4BB.jpg



    What colours and What washes do I need to do a real Pro Job?


    And yes; as soon as the weather wams up I'll begin painting certain areas of this monster

    The colours I normally use for plasma guns is a base of Vallejo magic blue, then a highlight of Vallejo electric blue, then use very watered down white as an extreme highlight. With the size of this I would recommend then a blue glaze, then redo the white. Hope this helps, and if you have a 28 mm plasma gun practise on that first.
