    Short post today.


    I finished the corner spires a day ago and glued them in place.

    I cannot say what their purpose could be They are too narrow tp climb inside to the top and they are purely decorative in my estimation.

    Not that the Imperium is above 'decorating' purely for it's own sake.

    Great progress BA, and as you say sometimes it's just decoration

    Thanks for replying and the information. I've looked on youtube and there doesn't seem to have any set formula to execute this effect. And none of them represented so far have really grabbed me Pro-wise. I do have the material, paint and an air brush and the washes recommended. I'll give your recommendations a shot later on today.

    Again; Thanks.

    Thanks for all the replies;


    I was in a playful mood yesterday and decided to spend my time making an Adeptus Mechanicus Icon for the front of the Quake Cannon housing.


    After a couple of failed attempts I suddenly remembered how I used to produce them, i.e.


    Mount the cut out circle and the center skull (Cast from Green Stuff) bas-relief on a sheet of styrene.


    Then glue on the cogs with the appropriate sized strips of styrene. using the next size larger strip. In this case I used 0.030 X 0.100 and 0.030 X0.125 Evergreen Strip Styrene.


    I then added the skull metal prosthetic to the right side of the skull and finished off with 0.025 rod for the cables and 0.100 rod for the eyepiece.

    This is the smallest Icon I've made so far.


    I hope when it's painted it doesn't look as crappy as it does right now.

    Just out of cusriosity, did you ever consider using a 3D printer for the smaller decorative parts, such as this Adeptus Mechanicus logo, or the aguilas you worked so hard on?

    Interestingly enough my son just acquired a SOTA 3D printer with a resin reservoir and offered to make parts for me but I declined.

    I prefer to do things the old fashion way.

    But this printer is amazing. There are no stratifying lines whatsoever. The print table is over a foot square and the printing chamber is easily a foot and a half tall. I could probably duplicate any of my projects in it.

    I think it is a 'Peopoly Phenom Large-Format MSLA 3D Printer' but I'm not sure.

    Anyway I think I nailed it


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



    albeit I do have to widen the front of the deck


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



    as it does look a tad crowded especially with the four towers on either side of the main Quake cannon.


    https://i.imgur.com/9SsJpw0.jpg



    I have varied the flanking "portcullis" towers a bit because the taller thin towers look better behind the wider but shorter front towers

    which hide the turret artwork too much.

    A Change of Pace:


    It's time to readdress the Raison d'etre of this project. The second main weapon arm will be a Gatling style multiple barrel weapon.


    https://i.imgur.com/1Ykg86a.jpg



    I'll have to redesign the gun mounts on both the arm weapons as they hang too low and may interfere with the hips


    https://i.imgur.com/3tDuxzH.jpg



    It's going to be a bit refreshing to design something other than the castle superstructure for a change. I actually spent some time these past few days painting a Baneblade variant tank Plasma cannon....


    Heresy!

    Not a problem Vejut. Making it look right in my minds eye is what make this project interesting. If everything went together perfectly what a bore that would be.


    My third try at this Quake Cannon seems to have hit the mark....

    The muzzle brake adds a nice touch (If that is what I think it is. Those holes must be for something besides esthetics.

    Any ideas what they could be? Ordnance is not my specialty.

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

    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
    I've got a lot of nerve resurrecting this old thread but I need to learn how to do Blue Plasma coils For my Emperor's Plasma cannon. I borrowed here and there from a half dozen "expert" painters and their results were fair to middling but none tackled large cannon that I could find.


    I haven't yet seen these images so I don't know how they've turned out...

    Seriously this will be my first viewing

    Ha; well it IS my first attempt at Cherenkov radiation.
