    Amendment:


    Because of my fixation on having a railed promenade for my Tech Priests I mounted the head higher than the You tube Video Imperator.

    Since my version has a dynamic structure I feel the snaky conduits are out of place and the chin armour is too close to the deck.

    There is no need for the cramped claustrophobic appearance when all the space above is free to interpretation.

    Of course I may just have added another 5 centimeters to the overall height.

    A Matter of Scale:


    A side by side comparison with my Warlord. Egad this thing will be huge.

    As per usual you do truly awe-inspiring work, BA. Just a question, will you also be doing the pelvis-gun (God, I wanted to write "Bullet shooting penis")

    Sorry, I find the groin gun gratuitous. and 'way too small.

    A Yard Stick Won't Be Enough:


    I'm beginning to think that even a meter is too conservative an estimate for the height of this behemoth.


    http://i.imgur.com/cBNuX3z.jpg



    The yardstick as presented indicate the 27 inches tall my Warlord stands.


    http://i.imgur.com/qPPFq0U.jpg



    The Triangular shoulders represent the width of the platform the cathedral superstructure sits on so even with out the legs the yardstick comes up short.

    Cities of Death Bitz:


    When I first started this project I stated I would be relying heavily of Prefab Bitz so as to make this model more accessible to would-be modelers. I fully expected readers to be able to make their own Emperor Titans following my examples. Certainly there are no big secrets revealed in this construction


    The problem I see in most Emperor Titans that employ bitz is a lack of imagination. You cannot use the pieces directly out of the box. Witness below.....


    http://i.imgur.com/h72NPQJ.jpg



    The flying buttresses as they come out of the box have little application to speak of in this area of the Titan but with a bit of judicious cutting and filing they find purpose.


    http://i.imgur.com/dbpQ3LL.jpg



    Likewise the area below the 'head' calls for a processional egress onto the balcony/podium/pulpit.


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



    Of course this is all subject to interpretation, You might have reservations about a huge vulnerable door in the front of the chest, I do myself but nothing is etched in stone and I may change my mind in the future but something is better than nothing so I'm going for it at this moment.

    Great use of detailing pieces BA, with the door I'm sure they could afford a double lock on the inside to make it secure

    Lovely use of bitz and a great build that I am really enjoying keeping up with. One of the highlights of the day is seeing your latest update on how this project is progressing. On the subject of the door, I think it'd be fine - I can just imagine a serious heavy duty bulkhead sliding into place just behind the more decorative doors to keep everything safe.

    Thanks for the replies, Wargamesculptor I've lost my FB Subscription.

    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.


    http://i.imgur.com/JunT8km.jpg



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


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



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


    http://i.imgur.com/240UkLw.jpg



    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.

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


    All this is subject to change as the model evolves

    Thanks for the regular updates on this blackadder...you have a very pragmatic approach to modelling which is great to see.

    Love the fact that this is starting to swamp the monitor behind in photos now.

    Name:  Untitled - 30.jpg
Views: 65
Size:  225.7 KBI use the monitor to display the part I am working on. Although the images I am using are very vague in detail and resolution and decidedly so in relative size and scale they do offer an approximation of what I am attempting to achieve. The first image of the series above shows the rectangular housings I am attempting to recreate.

    Thank you for the thoughtful reply.

    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.




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



    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.

    Seems to be a warhound missing from this awesome group shot, and a reaver as well. Stunning work as always BA

    Actually I was doing a bit of repair to the Warlord tightening up the joints as it were. Luteus has had some difficulty standing up of late as some of the hidden bolts had worked loose. It's been so long since I had him apart I'd forgotten where some of the bolts were. He also has quite a bit if dust on him and I do want to add more lighting to the interior. Lucie the Warhound has a new display stand and the Thunderhawk has a flight mode display pedestal. I can't seem to muster any interest in the Lucius Reaver conversion. I haven't even looked at it for a couple of years.

    Facebook deleted all my Blackadder posts and images in an extremely highhanded manner saying I'm not allowed to use an alter ego. What's up with that? I thought everyone used an assumed identity.
