Stompy and me go back a long long way, I originally built him early 90's when I was a mere scratch-building hatch ling. He was later dragged out of the garden shed and rushed into service for the launch of Apocalypse. I finally got him back to the Titan Planetary workshops (OK, my spare room) to do him a little more justice

I will probably end up totally re-painting him after all the detail work is finished but I will cross that bridge when I come to it

Just finished pimping over the main weapons, the new Gatling blaster and Volcano cannon. As you can see from the Titan crew stood on the Gantry, they are whoppers!

Also pictured them next to 'Mjolnir' the New FW Reaver Titan, even he doesn't look so impressive when he is stood next to the mega Gatling cannon!

On another positive I am managing to make a little space and clear most of the crap lying around in my various bits boxes by slapping everything I can find onto the re-fit

I knew saving those pot noodle tubs was a good idea ;)

Holy freaking.... words cannot describe how awesome that is.

Those guns, when compared to FW's reaver, look big enough for an Imperator Titan let alone a Warlord, have you thought of doing one of them instead?

I usually subscribe to and watch your threads completely lost for words, this will be yet another one.

Triggerdog
22-07-2008, 14:48
Yes, considering the size on those you're closer to Imperator than Warlord. Also I must say that th guns alone look better than almost every scratch build Titan project I've seen on this site. I especially like how you included the maintenance walkways and ladders on them, its a nice touch.

btw your Reaver is beautiful.

I did NOT expect to see a Warlord Scratchbuild made out of legit pieces and not just cardboard! 0.o

This is made of 1 part win, 2 parts epic (1 for each gun) and 3 parts awesome!

The gantries on the gun exterior are just plain genius.

Well done.

I am in complete awe of you sir. Keep it up!!!

Kronos

that is just made of pure win, pure awesome, and a bucket load of oure insanity and bravery. That arm itself is amazing, and the fact that it's just the arm and is already bigger than the reaver is amazing. definitly keeping an eye on this. and good luck with the rest of titan.

It's awesome alright, but too big for a Warlord.

Having seen Epic titans before, here's a guide for you;

Warlord ~= Twice the height of a Warhound (About 60cm in 40k scale)

Imperator ~= Twice the height of a Warlord (About 100-120cm in 40k scale)

This said... That gun is *way* too big for a Warlord class titan!

BulldogUK
22-07-2008, 18:06
Glad you like it chaps, Stompy is an old Mk1 Warlord (not really a fan of the Mk3) as I have said earlier, he will hopefully get the same makeover as the weapons, I already have full cockpit detail planned. Also lots more gantries to be added to the main body as I intend the titan itself to be a battlefield!

I never sketch things out and prefer to just work from my head as I go, I like it this way, everything is always a surprise :D

Pictures before he came home can be found here http://www.tanksandtrolls.co.uk/40KTitan%20company.htm (top left)

I got to be honest Admiral Koppenflak, I personally don't think there is much room in sci fi gaming for scale, especially for something of this magnitude, I just go with what looks cool and if it makes you think "Holy *****" then I have done my job well :D

Besides I hail back from the days of the original Adeptus Titanicus, when men were men, cybernetic sheep were wary and Titans were, erm, well TITANIC!

The carapace lifts off, I am toying with the idea of making a "Sunday best" Imperator cathedral to take its place, maybe some new Emperor weapons, long way off though. This is a project I am actually ENJOYING for a change!

I will try and get a progress page up and running on the website if I can break away from my craft knife for long enough...

xedric
22-07-2008, 19:59
Wow. HUGE! Is that real bullets in the feed to the gun? If so, it says quite a bit about the size... Its not a mini! Its like... a biggi?

Hellfury

Dear lord there is some major over compensation issues going on here.

Some super sweet overcompensation issues. ;)

Judging by those guns, that model in going to be taller than a man.

All 5 foot 8!!!!
Massive is an understatement!
Great looking weapons.
If I made something this size Mrs Bugbait would throw me out.

Now paint up that gatling gun and take it into a bank or some such and tape it and post it on youtube, I wonder how the people would react to something irl looking gun like that :evilgrin:

Did a little more work on the titan today. all the weapons are finished (not painted of course) and started working on the carapace, not going too OTT on anything above the head as once its on the table its all around 8 feet up in the air!

This is the re-fitted barrage launcher,

I have also added studding to the edging pieces

this titan is absolutely astonishing, if its 8 feet like you say unless you're playing on the floor then you may have to drill holes in the roof.:)

biggreengribbly
27-07-2008, 00:20
The Implication was, I believe that it was 8 feet in total, with the length of the table beneath it's feet included in the calculation.

Perhapse the titan should be put forward as an Imperator and not Warlord?

Ddraiglais
28-07-2008, 03:31
It's even too big for an imperator. It'd be perfect for a warlord for 3 1/4" action figures though.

Alright now that i have cleared up the mess. That looks amazing!!
one question. if its going to be about 8ft tall.. how are you going to hold it all together so you can still move it around? really big magnets or Pins? lol

Cheers,

BulldogUK
28-07-2008, 22:38
Done some more work on the big guy!

Torso detailed up, also added a few bits of piping and more gantries to the underside of the carapace, was a little plain and it gives it more of an industrial look now.

Also finished detailing the head and cockpit detail. The 'eyes' actually have LED's fitted so they shine green and red, look quite funky, the torso also carries 4 LED spotlights to light up the battlefield before him and finally the cockpit screens and controls will cast light over the interior of the command deck. I will get some decent pics of the lights when the Titan is painted for best effect. Bulked the neck out with ribbed piping and made skull cap removable so the interior can be viewed

Decided it might be novel to keep track of the void shields by actually building the generators and using magnets to secure them to the carapace, this way they can be removed when knocked out and re-applied when powered up again..boys and their toys! LOL

just putting finishing touches to the legs and I will assemble for a complete photo, after that its dis-assemble and paint time!

Wow.

What are the interior details made out of? They look awesome! I'd recommend putting the princeps' chair in some kind of pulpit though, to get the gothic alcove feel. What is the wiring on the underside of the carapace for? It looks ... functional...

As for scale, it actually looks about right as to what it SHOULD be for a warlord (even the forgeworld titans are pretty small for what they should be).

I got to take my hat of to you, thats all i can say as im so in shock! this thing is ace, you made the datasheet hehe.

Also are some of the parts you used cast in plaster?

great work!

This is by far the best scratch-built titan I've ever seen...in fact i'd go so far as to say this is the best scratch built ANYTHING i've ever seen! Most titans just look scraped together out of cardboard, but this model is absolutely fantastic. I love the walkways, and all the details you've put into it! I would be absolutely terrified to be fielding anything against that beast.

Only one critical note, some of the foam looks rough and...well foam like. How are you planning on smoothing that out? I've never had much luck making foam look nice and smooth...

KEEP UP THE AMAZING WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

talos935
29-07-2008, 07:38
Is that 8 foot on the table or 8 foot freestanding?

Judging by the size of the guns [to the Reaver], it's *way* bigger than a warlord

Binky
29-07-2008, 07:58
WOW i would love to know the process you went through to do the interia of the cockpit it looks cast but what with

I would guess the interior details are cast in either resin or plaster of paris, they appear to be casts of the interior detail from the FW Reaver, for instance the two servitor in the walls are the gun servitor from the interior ceiling of the Reaver and the various vents, screens and crew are also from the Reaver.

STUNNING!

QUESTION: Did you cast up the (servitors)/ crew from originals. I thought I was familiar with the various parts of FW bits, but the 4 guys at the rear of the cockpit are eluding me?

Can we get some close ups of them at all?

The 4 servitors at the rear of the cockpit are from the ceiling of the Reaver titan hull interior (not visible in any of the shots on the FW site, basically it's moulded into the underside of the top carapace section).

Have I any problems with my eyes or was just one weapon of this newest Titan out of your forge as big as the Reaver? *stunning*

All the detail work now done, finished the legs and waist yesterday, also re-assembled it all, nearly peed my pants, it looks cool!

Will have some complete pics later today, just got a little extra work to do on the weapon mounts, for now here are more WIP pics

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v429/BulldogUK/NewTitanlegs3.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v429/BulldogUK/NewTitanlegs2.jpg

Try to answer a few questions now!

yes, Binky is right, I took molds of the reaver crew before I built the model, strictly for personal use of course, with the big guy in mind. When I pay 500 quid for Reaver model I expect to get my moneys worth from it!

I actually had an email from the guys at FW a couple of weeks back saying they really enjoyed looking at the website, its nice to know that they encourage us scratch builders and appreciate our slight eccentricity ;)

Right, the wire mesh is from any local auto shop, about £1 for a roughly A4 size sheet, I found an interesting side use for it too, cut it into really thin strips and it makes fantastic barbed wire for the battlefield!

Titan is around 5 1/2 feet tall, nearly 8 feet to the top of the barrage launcher when he is stood on the table!

Once the banner is fitted it should top around 6 1/2 feet, I cant fit it at home while its on the table though....ceilings too low!

I will get some close-ups of the command deck once its all painted and lit up, just onto it now

Not planning on smoothing any of the foam out to be honest, it sort of gives it an aged look, also I really cant be ar*ed/want to risk any more weight!

Lord Inquis, I agree, I always thought the released Titan kits were a little too small to be honest, probably thinned down to allow a reasonable production kit to be created. This fella was originally built from the old epic minis, the height of the toe was equal to a space marine

it played in one game in its original form on the release of apoc using standard warlord rules, lasted about 3 or 4 turns then some chaos obliterators teleported under its shield's (can they do that?) and finished it off. its very entertaining to use in games however, 1st turn the vortex missile took out THREE baneblades, it also nailed numerous troops, vehicles and a warhound before finally going crit (OK, we may have adjusted the rolls slightly!) exploding for a 36 inch blast and toasting most of the remaining troops including its own side ROFLMAO

Took your advice on the princep btw, have pimped him up and he is sat on a nice throne like command chair, cheers for the suggestion

Anyhow, building work done, now onto the painting....think I may need a few more pots of paint LOL

Btw, that's not a 25mm miniature stood at its feet in the last pic, its the new FW reaver!!!

You just about need a bigger house.

And judging buy the back ground your looking at starting 40K earlier nice gun collection.

Once again bulldoguk, you amaze me. I find it awesome that FW would comment on your website and designs. After it is all painted up I think you should play with it in an apoc game again and post some pictures and a small report of how it performed. That would be great. And good luck with painting that thing~!

Impressive but daft nonetheless.

The legs have no knee's...watching that thing walk would be hailarious.
He'd struggle to get over even fairly small obstacles by the looks of things.

LOL, if your in a hundred foot killing machine and your wanting to gently step OVER the Orc cultural centre I think your in the wrong job...stick with the infantry :D

I sorta see what your saying though, on the other hand I can imagine it would possibly be able to move, just google walking robots, there are some crazy designs out there, but they all walk in one way or another. End of the day its sci-fi, use your imagination ;)

Tommygun its surpisingly easy to slide around on a cloth based gaming mat (like the ones GW sells) it stands on a 27 inch diameter base so you dont even have to touch the model to move it, saying that it doesnt really have to move much in your average game, it makes a great objective!

I was playing around with the idea of making some little ball bearing runners beneath the base but it just seems like tempting fate making it that easy to move, odds on one day it rolls off the table and squashes little johny flat as a pancake and even worse damages my model!

Speaking of dimensions I measured things up yesterday, 6 feet high with banner (5' 1" from toe to top of barrage launcher) 35 inches wide and as mentioned stands on a 27 inch diameter base...try buying those in blister packs of 4 from your local hobby shop!

You should take a photo of someone standing right next to it for scale.
I like Teh_Soldier suggestion of seeing more of your garage.

This is one of the best models I've ever seen, but if I may, please can I offer two points of constructive crit?

First, I'm not sure about the Orks scaling the leg. I know the model is really old and in its first incantation would have been less seriously put together, but parts of the model are so highly finished now that the comic nature of that diorama seems out of place.

Second, please put as much detail into the shoulders and legs as you did into the weapons and the head (my god, the head!) - you've done so much incredible work here that you've got the opportunity of a hobbyists lifetime - if you finish the rest of it to the extent of that cockpit, this will literally be a model that people talk about for decades - one of the all time great GW hobby creations.

Well my hat off to you Sir!

Thats quite a master peice, hell its beyond a master peice, its truely is a TITAN!!!

I also have a forgeworld reaver and having it allows me to appreciate its size even more. It be nice if workshop did up the scale of there titans or atleast give us exact scale of them as the fluff and artwork are very deceptive.

Once again thou it is very beautiful and sexy, it should be entered into Gamesday in the open !!!

however i personally believe the lower legs should be bigger!

de Selby
07-08-2008, 08:59
The thing is, if the lower legs were bigger it would be the size of Hein's titan and people would be saying it was too tall. Personally I like my titans to be as big as possible (more like the artwork and less like the epic miniatures), but at least the upper body is suitably huge.

It's just like citadel miniatures; out of proportion so you focus on the most important bits, like the guns :D

BulldogUK
07-08-2008, 22:16
hehe, glad you like whats been done so far chaps. Little busy over the next couple of months but will try and get some painting done on the big fella.

Couple of points, first regarding the legs. the original model was built when only the Mk1 Titan was available, personally I always liked it over the newer Mk3 Titans (bit too square IMO), as such the legs are staying the same and will stay faithful to the original, this is, afterall, a patch job not a total re-build and as selby says, if your losing sleep over the legs when there are guns THAT big right next to them maybe you should sell up and start playing monopoly ;)

Regarding the detail, I am leaving it as it is right now, I think you can swamp a model with too much detail just for the sake of it. If I really wanted to I could leave this Titan on my workbench for the next few months and really go to crazy town on it, however, I need to clear the table ASAP for other projects and as you can probably appreciate this thing takes up a LOT of space! besides there is nothing to say that a few more months down the line I cant drag it back home and add a little more 'interesting' bits to it :D

rather fancy making some alternative weapons, maybe a corvus assault pod or equally exotic replacements for the original sets!

I have changed the overall edging colour to bronze/gold to match in with the reaver Titan 'Mjolnir'. Turns out that rather than paint over the new parts its become a total re-paint from top to toe! BAH rather more work than I planned for!

Jabba_TheHunt
07-08-2008, 22:26
Words cannot express how impressive this project is mate. That is insanely cool. Will you transport that to a local game or exhibition?

BulldogUK
13-08-2008, 20:00
Warlord is just about finished now, just got to touch up the back banner and paint up a few assault marines, so here are a few teaser pics. Painted 10 servitors yesterday, they were originally going to go into my adeptus army but got re-assigned to God machine maintenance, can probably spot a few on one of the pics going about their daily business ;D

I was quite surprised actually. By the time the marines are pinned to the leg repelling borders there will be a total 37 miniatures in, on are within the Titan, a small army!

I didn't go crazy on the carapace, after all apart from the odd world series basketball player wandering into the shop I figured who is gonna see anything up there!

Enjoy, full pics hopefully within a week!

Oh, he is now 'Odin' all his weapons are also named after other Norse Gods, thought it would keep things nicely in line with 'Mjolnir' my Reaver Titan

Scale issues aside (it's big enough to be an Imperator, nevermind a warlord! :p ), this is an incredible piece of work... what I like most is the detailing you have given it, something that is missing from the MK.1 Warlords, in comparison to the MK.3's (unlike you, I prefer the MK.3's, but for that reason).

Most of all, I have learnt from this thread to never underestimate what one can do with empty Pot Noodles! :D

That thing looks truly wiked, next time you play appocalypse, don't put it on the table, it can command the battle it's that tall.
I am honestly amazed someone could build and even consider painting that!
I got a Baneblade for christmas and its still 3/4 painted.

Next you should build your own life sized fully functional power armour.
And while your at it make Gene seed and what not.
I will then pay you to make me the first real life space marine presuming I don't have to have my nuts removed, seriosly how inconvinient would nuts be for a 40k marine picture a marine charging into orks and a bullet hits him in the crotch, dosen't penetrate the armour or anything but the marine kneels over half way through the battle holding his crotch area.

BulldogUK
16-08-2008, 22:18
Well, it's all finished chaps! However, am gonna be a big tease and not post any pics until it goes back into the shop after the August bank hol, main reason is I don't have the ceiling clearance to get the bloody banner on!

Anyhow, few updates here.

First are a few marines I have painted up for costume jewelry. First chance I have had to try the speed painting technique on actual 40k marines, turned out quite nice and I really enjoyed painting them (excuse the Kama Sutra type poses, they will be pinned to the legs of the titan mid flight) so I guess an Ultramarine army is on the books!

Second, I decided to take advantage of the two redundant hard points on the Titans carapace and add some AA! Being way too tight to blow all that money on FW hydras I managed to pick up a couple of WWII 1/18 scale quad 50 cals, 9 quid each, bargain!

After literally an hour modifying them and a quick paint job later they look quite funky, great thing about these is they can be removed if need be and used for static emplacements in games or even slapped on top of existing chassis for air support when required, bobbed one on one of my Baneblades for an example

BulldogUK
16-08-2008, 22:21
OK, few more teaser shots, note the servitors are now in place strutting their stuff and doing what they are paid for, also notice the servo skulls fluttering about keeping a careful watch on things (added a couple to the command deck too)

47 minis on board and counting! 51 if you count the 4 servitors hard wired into the command deck!

Final picture shows the marines in place and repelling borders, giving the Orks a jolly good thrashing! I will get some close up ASAP

Big guys gotta be disassembled until he goes back into the Wakefield GW shop so I can have some room back and work on my table. Figured might as well take a few shots.

Sadly he seems to be one of those 'miniatures' that simply isn't photogenic IMHO, simply too big to get the whole feel of the scale of the model yet appreciate the detail. Hopefully should be down at Games day with him and maybe a few more of the models so do your self a favour and check him out with the good old MK1 eyeball if your passing ;)

...wow...just wow

This model is utterly astounding. It's rare to see any level of detail in a model this big, most people seem to just slap one together out of cardboard so they can field one on the table, or leave it somewhere at 5% completion. That you even finished this behemoth impresses me to no end, let alone how fantastic it looks.

Got round to painting up a few more bits n pieces for the Titan base yesterday. Established a nice range of blues (none of them Ulramarine surprisingly!) for my speed painting technique now so its just a getting the time to jump headlong into my Ultramarine army

DN has a few Dark Angel parts I pulled out the bits box to fluff him up a bit, decided to paint the full range of weapons as he will only be pinned to the base allowing me to use him in battles.

I pulled some fantastic Dark angel converted minis from ebay a while ago, I have decided I am gonna really rile the rivet counters out there and paint 'em all blue...call them the Ultra-wings!

Ork trukk was originally planned for the Reaver base but it seems more appropriate here, bottom pics show rough positioning, orks will be minus the bases of course when I am done.

Been playing a lot of Dawn of War lately so couldn't resist the DN giving the Ork a lovable hug!

No camera trickery del-patch. Just pure magic :D

I simply poured a small ammount of red bull into each back pack...it gives them wings you know!

Seriously they are all pinned to the leg, purely accidental but the wire used was a really neutral gun metal colour (works much better than black), its less obvious than on the pics and really hard to spot when looking it over with the good old mk1 eyeball, sometimes I have to pinch myself to remind me they aint actually flying around there like some heavily armoured Cottingley fairies!

Btw, should be down at games day next week with him and hopefully a few of the other models, will be on the Wakefield shop stand, come say hello if your down there, always nice to put faces to avatars!

This thing has been in my way for ages now since I updated it witha new Vortex missile but I just can't justify simply binning it soooooo

First person to come find me at games day and poke me with a spoon gets it for FREE!

Gotta be a spoon mind you, nothing sharp or pointy ;)

I'm sure some of you orky players out there can find a good use for it!

BulldogUK
12-09-2008, 08:07
yes it is rcal13, built from card plans and a little extra gubbins from the bits box. 32 inches long so its a biggy too! The plans and details can be seen here..http://www.tanksandtrolls.co.uk/firefly.htm

There is also a link to details and downloadable plans for the Mule on that page ;)

I have something special planned for next years table involving the Titan.

On the same note does anyone out there have one of the epic arm mounted corvus assault pods or any pics/ref material I could work from? Nothing for keeps of course, just to give me a general idea of proportions, details, etc.

Kicking myself knowing I shouldnt have sold all my epic stuff years ago now!

Dear Bulldog

Well everyone has there highlights at gamesday, but speaking to you and seeing your beautiful titans was certainly one of mine this year.

Its so odd as i had two people who recognised me from my photo on my blog saying hello too. The warseer comunity really is something quite special.

Thank you for taking the opportunity to take a couple of minutes out and talk to me about the titans. I especially love the work on the side of the GK titan.

Regards

My name is Daniel and i am a wargamer

By looking at all the other titans and stuff hes got... it looks like a truck for this one, and a truck for everything else combined.

Can we get some shots (front view or whatever) of all your titans? Or would that seriously... take 6 pages?

BulldogUK
20-11-2008, 22:23
Inspired after I read Titanicus I decided to haul the Imperial Titans over the the local GW to have a group shot with Odin!

5 models - 7000 pts....LOL how cool is that!

All the titans and aircraft apart from the two Reavers are scratch built.

Just finished adding a bunch of servo skulls to the model as well as muzzle flashes to the little guys fighting around its feet. Detail shots and a build log of Odin can be found here Warlord Titan (http://www.tanksandtrolls.co.uk/40KWarlordTitanNEW.htm)

I should be adding sound to Odin some time next week. Managed to pull some nice Mechwarrior stompy and blasty sounds from the net, 8 in total on a continuos random loop, once the speakers are installed it should add a little more character to the whole party!

Next? I reckon with the sudden influx of Heretic Titans Odin really needs some sort if close assault weapon to give them a good slap around. I have ideas swirling around my noggin on a huge lightning claw sort of set-up, hopefully get round to that before Xmas, also going to be working on a Corvus assault pod for a set piece for next years game day

Odin is pretty big as Warlord Titans go (they just don't make 'em like they used to!) so I am playing with the idea of building two more titan class weapons for the two forward carapace mount giving a total of 6 weapon points. Playing around with his stats and using him as maybe some sort if of Titan destroyer/hunter

Bear in mind these are only the stock Imperial classes, for much more including background fluff check the Titan Legion page! (http://www.tanksandtrolls.co.uk/40KTitan%20company.htm)

Hope you enjoy, if any of you chaps feel like photoshopping a decent backdrop on any of these pics feel free, I have higher res pics to hand, just giver me a shout,I am pretty useless at that sort of stuff!

23-03-2009, 15:41
OK, finally found some time this weekend to knock together those additional weapon systems for Odin!

Lot of people have 'complained' about him being way too big for a Warlord, personally I say if your gonna build a Titan, build it as big as you can, clues sort of in the name ::)

Anyhow, seemed a good enough excuse to build something!

Odin shall soon be upgraded to 'Warbringer - Titan Hunter' class, I will work out some in depth fluff as things progress but basically your looking at a behemoth of a machine specifically created to hunt and destroy enemy Titans.

In real terms this means a load out of 4 carapace and 2 arm weapons, maybe a couple of extra void shields and structure points. I figure it would also be feasible to contain barrack quarters in the huge carapace for up to 3 space marine squads (preferably assault to allow rapid deployment to ground level defence)

Roughly a machine that sits between the Warlord and Imperator but designed specifically to go out and kick some machine butt rather than sit back and provide support like the Warmonger class

In modelling terms I will replace the two AA mounts on the front carapace with 2 new weapon systems. 2 x Triple barrel superturbo laser destructors. A much larger and more powerful version of the weapon mounted on the Reaver Titan specifically aimed at overloading enemy shields allowing for killing blows to the unprotected machine beneath. Although these are some of the smaller weapons wielded by Odin you may note that they are still as big as a Reaver Titan....yikes!

Anyhow, progress pics below, will update once they are painted and mounted

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v429/BulldogUK/Odinweapons5.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v429/BulldogUK/Odinweapons2.jpg

Raided the bits box again, empty tamiya thinner tubs, some old make-up bottles (erm, the good ladies, not mine I hasten toi add!) and the tops from the sprays I use amongst other things went into the build......waste not want not!

G.Hawke
23-03-2009, 15:57
actully, having started my own warlord, i can appreciate your position. the sheer scale of the buggers is difficult to work, and given he's a titan hunter, it explains the extra foot you've added.

i look forwards to seeing those mounted, though i must say, odin is one hell of a beastie.

Heres a question for you Bulldog me ol' mucker..

I just bought me an armorcast reaver and its currently on its way over the Atlantic, how does it scale in with more recent large models? I know you made your 'hounds following the same templates as me but looking at your pics they look about the same size as the reaver, is that right?

Can you show me a comparison pic? also one with your scratch reaver too if thats ok as I did one of those too.

IncrediSteve
25-03-2009, 00:47

The Reaver on the front right in Post 193 [http://www.warseer.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3093986&postcount=193] is an Armorcast Reaver. When Bulldog said "the two scratchbuilt reavers", he meant the two Scratchbuilt Warhounds.

The one in the middle is the new Forgeworld Reaver; compare the two and then compare the new reaver here: http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Titans/reaver/wrscale.jpg; they're almost the same height.

OK, sleazy here is the pic as promised.

Armorcast Reaver is 14" tall 9" accross the shoulders (oh, add about a 1/4 inch for the base)

FW Reaver is 16" tall 10" accross the shoulders

Warhound is 10.5" tall 9 iches accross the shoulders, this is the card version, not sure how it compares to the FW resin

I look forward to seeing more of the work you do, and Im also guessing towards titan fist.

Yes they can be removed, simply pinned so I can move them around vehicles and aircraft as need be. I like them, tend to add a little 'life' to an otherwise static model, look great in battles!

This is amazing... most warlord titans you see (for the rare times you actually do see them) are really roughly done, but the amount of detail you put into the hand alone is more than I've done on entire armies...

I have slapped a little paint on the claw, hopefully get it test fitted sometime this week and get some pics, fingers crossed I won't have to fiddle about with the joints, built everything away from the Titan so everything was done with guestimation!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v429/BulldogUK/claw2405092.jpg

Made a couple of seals up to add a little interest, they are attached via magnets allowing them to be positioned depending on the more dynamic poses possible with the claw.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v429/BulldogUK/claw2405095.jpg

The whole thing is 2 feet from fingertip to shoulder, the actual glove itself isn't far off a 1/1 scale marine powerfist IMO (check out my hand next to the model) which has got my brain comptenplating all sorts of crazy ideas!!!
