    nice to see it nearly fully assembled. The arms definitely need to come up so they are closer to the shoulders

    Possibly but I'll reserve final judgment until the carapace and gun armour is completed.

    I may have to move the guns a bit inboard and cut back the skirt of the carapace but it is easier to cut back than to add on.

    Right now I am going with my gut estimate.................

    I think the arms are totally fine.

    A lot is going to depend on the stance he's standing in I think. He needs to be walking along I think. That will make him look more purposeful.

    Legs sprawled in the classic Reaver stance:

    I love this pose, it seems to say, "Go ahead, make my day."

    What's Latin for, "Dirty Harry?"

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    Looking up; well because the hip bolts loosened:

    No time to tighten them as I have another Holiday commitment................

    I hate this week.

    It looks much better with the splayed legs. I'd still like to see it in a walking pose myself, but it looks good as you have it there.

    I do agree on both

    The arms seem a bit too long compared to the weapons lenght , not much but....

    And it still looks awesome... FW quality I would say.

    Re: Blackadder WIP Warlord Titan

    on the arm length: as they are now, I feel they are too long... but they could possibly remain the same length, but the biceps would require some serious beefing out to make them look like they can can carry the weight of the weapons.

    Re: Blackadder WIP Warlord Titan ''Luteus Vexant''

    The Weapon Spaced armour was the initial subject for the new year thus far. I wasn't too satisfied with the gauntlet armour as it appears on the DS model. It seemed too short front to back and made the guns look barrel heavy There is a add on counterweight plate that Mr Smith added and I shall add it as well but I also elongated the from tan rear bevel and increased the overall length of the armour 19.5 MM.

    My issue with the entire 40K

    That is what I came up with as well, ''Luteus Vexant'' seems like a Titan name to me...........

    Re: Blackadder WIP Warlord Titan

    One is almost reminded of the second funniest scene in movies that in the MP "Life of Brian'' were the Centurian (John Cleese corrects the Latin grammar of the would be graffitist Brian (Graham Chapman). I say second funniest because the all time funniest incident in movies has got to be Michael Palin's lisping Pilate daring his guards to laugh when he says, Biggus Di--us.......... ROTFTIPOL funny.

    Re: Blackadder WIP Warlord Titan

    Today we're going to tackle the manufacture of removable panels.

    Misguided as I am I am under the delusion that interior detail will be a plus for this construct.

    The problem is how to access viewing of said detail.

    The answer is rare earth magnets. I bought mine at Harbor Freight; 10 magnets 5/16" dia. X 5/64" thick for about a buck and change per package

    The first order of instruction is "DON"T SWALLOW THESE MAGNETS!" I am given to understand that they will stick together in your small intestine and cause blockage that could result in having to be surgically removed.

    That obvious caution rendered, the problem is how to glue these to the frame of your compartment so as to take full advantage of their marvelous properties.

    I came up with this method:

    I cut thin sections from Evergreen 3/8" square box beam extrusion and glued them after squaring the cut to a piece of 0.020 scrap sheet styrene.

    http://i.imgur.com/i8oXJ.jpg


    I the incapsulated a magnet into the recess and sanded the rim down to almost flush with the magnet face.

    I then glued a scrap of 0.010 sheet styrene to the rim, allowed to dry, sanded off the excess and had a magnet ready to be incorporated into the opening.

    http://i.imgur.com/rLW0L.jpg

    I used eight magnets instead of magnets and washers to close off the front chest panel on my titan as I wanted a tight seam.

    http://i.imgur.com/DruL1.jpg


    I used variations on this to affix the neck in the vertical and up position and to secure the helmet to the cockpit.

    Hey !!
    Brilliant idea of using magnets on magnets ! I can perhaps make that work on the arm of my reaver. Thanks, Mate

    Front hatch looking very good.

    Re: Blackadder WIP Warlord Titan

    I don't know the Physics regarding the multiplicity of magnetic fields but it seemed to me that magnet to magnet would be stronger than magnet to passive ferris material. possibly by at least 50% more intense; anyway since the magnets are so cheap I figure, "What the hey give it a go........." I don't have a magnetometer!

    Re: Blackadder WIP Warlord Titan

    I spent the better part of today tightening the joints and installing the magnets. The whole thing weighs in at 10 pounds (4.5 Kg) and stands 26 inches (66.04 CM) tall in this pose.

    The thigh guards are now magnetized but need centering strips to keep them square. The head in the up position is held in place with a single magnet pair and the helmet is held in place with two double magnet pairs

    The face shield I believe will get magnets to hold it on which should make painting easier.

    Whew I can't believe it's standing on its own and not crushing the feet mechanisms.

    Dumb luck strikes again.
