Not many comments, which is a bit sad. This is a really nice build. Will look forward to seeing the completed item!
Undersides of shoulders now complete. Will post pictures in the morning. Thank you for your support Nedius, much appreciated. I wonder if the lack of comments is due to the poor picture quality? Im taking all pictures off my camera phone. Or it may be that no one likes me ... lol ;-)
Looking good, will be keeping an eye on this

I wouldn't worry to much about the lack of comments you will probably find a lot of people are watching your thread and just not commenting. hows the detailing work coming along?
Waist and legs
Underside of chin and body
Detailing onto of head
Thanks again for everyone support. Detailing is still ongoing - next project is to add some piping onto the back of the body. The big job that im not looking forward to is the filling in of gaps with "green stuff". Tempted to take daisy along to my local games club and see how much carnage she could cause....
Just had to resuce Daisy from the clutches of my 1 year old daughter Hannah. It would now seem that said child can now reach the dining room table. No damage caused thankfully. I was having a work out about how many man hours have went into Daisy thus far and I reckon it must be close to 30 hours. I need to learn to speed up a bit more.

thats amazing achieving this so far in only 30 hrs. Projects this size would prob take a hell of a lot more into well over a 100 hours. I know some people spend more than 40 hours on just a single mini.
Jobs for today....
Replicate the shoulder edging onto the lower edge of the shin armour.
Add a circular colar around the weapon mounts on the underside of the shoulders.
Add pistons to the rear of the waist / hip joints.
Add piping to the back to conect to the shoulders.
Wish me luck.
Edging to the shins added.
Piping added to the back connecting the back to the shoulders.
Will upload pictures tonight/tomorrow.
Starting to think about the colour scheme. Thinking Legio Crucius - Black and white with a gold trim.....Would this work on a lucius pattern titan or is it better suited to the Mars pattern....
Side view of armour edging to the shin armour. You wont believe just how much of a pain in the neck this is to do. These images also show the rivets in the two knee koints.
Front shin armour edging and secondary toe detailing.
Im about to start slicing rivets to place at 6mm intervals on the armour.
Probably about 2 hours work left before I start painting. I want to try and achieve a gloss finish on the armour plates....not sure how to do this....
Comments and suggestions welcome.
It's looking really great Scotticus! What did you make that plasma blastgun out of? It looks really good. For me, making the weapons was the most annoying part. Well, aside from using slightly-too-thin plasticard and plans meant for making a cardstock Titan,
resulting in very gluey hands, irritating builds and much, much cursing...
I will also second your suggestion regarding snap-off blades, having been on the receiving end of a slipped knife while modelling!

The plasma blast gun was made out of 1.2mm mounting card and two white board markers that were stuck together. The rear section of the weapon was made by cutting into the box that serves as the mount and glueing two plastic junction connectors that are used to join wires together in a mains circuit in a house.
I to have experienced the stuck together fingers ....
Thanks for your comments
once you have painted the armour plates use a gloss varnish if you want them to be shiny. you can get this in the gws paint range or you can get spray stuff from model shops
Probably the best card build warhound that I have seen on the internet without exception.
A question - Why did you use card instead of plastic sheets?
Keep up the good work. I agree with a previous poster it is a shame that this log is not recieving more attention.
Really enjoyed just reading this plog. I think the above comment was right though in that most people are just reading and suitably impressed with the build.
I get the impression its incredibly easy to get carried away with the detailing? eally nice build though mate.
It is very easy to get carried away with the detailing....I keep on finding extra bits that I can add detail to. Thanks for your support ChadXHollywod. I to think that people are viewing this log and not posting. It has a decent number of views anyway so ....
In response to Bob1234 - I used card instead of plastic card due to simply not having any plastic card to hand. In future would I use plastic card instead of mounting card .... yes without doubt.
Piping on the rear of the body is now attached
Additional detailing onto the top of the body
Jobs for the rest of the week
Wednesday - Green stuff any gaps and respray the black undercoat.
Thursday - Start the painting.
I am however in need of some adeptus mechanicus symbols.....Any suggestions?
Thanks for everyones suport.
What are your plans for the rear of the body? The forgeworld model has vents on there. This section looks a little bare.
You may be right in that people are just watching and not commenting.
Have you got the plans available for this model? I feel inspired.
