    Re: Blackadder's Attempt To Build a Lucius Patten Imperator Titan 'Invictus'

    I've been requested to provide Scale for the Emperor Titan. Unfortunately the legs are not attached to the pelvis, in point of fact the upper leg segment has yet to be designed. But one lower leg is avail so for reference we can compare it to a standard Space Marine Trooper and to a Warlord Titan that I just happen to have.....

    I don't think I'd quite realized the scale until that picture. Is that Warlord roughly the size of the FW version? (Also, Lucius Pattern Warlord is best pattern Warlord!)

    I've come to the conclusion that this is just very elaborate cosplay based on the size. :P

    I've based my Warlord on the Dave Smith model

    http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2009/...ord-titan.html

    by scrupulously measuring the bitz present in the Smith model and projecting the rest of the components based on those measurements. My version stands 28 inches tall as does Mr Smith's model so they are both to approximately the same scale. Mr Smith's model appears slightly more robust than mine.

    I believe the FW Warlord is 23 inches tall depending on how it is posed unless someone can apprise me to the contrary. In a static straight legged pose I am betting no taller than 24.5 inches. (I also think the FW model's legs are too short.)

    My Warlord is a scale 160 feet tall and I am projecting my Emperor will scale out to about 240 feet tall at this time rather taller than when I began this project.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Legs Akimbo:

    It's time to put my theories to the test. Yesterday began designing what I hope will be a movable leg system that will use friction locks to maintain the pose.

    The PVC pipe couplings have "O" ring compression gaskets that will lock the upper thigh in place yet allow me to change the position in seconds.

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


    The Lower Thigh to knee joint will be trickier and require a screw driver compression joint the same as on my Warlord.

    https://i.imgur.com/3yoV86m.jpg


    The biggest problem and one I just solved today in a fit of serendipity is how to make the legs sprawl out into the classic Titan pose.

    https://i.imgur.com/iQn5Ci2.jpg


    That will require a homemade gimbal assembly that I may have worked out in theory. It remains to be seen if the material is up to it.

    Looking at these images I can just see my loyal readers cringing...........

    I'm putting a lot of hope on flimsy styrene components.

    Those gridnets will take a lot of load, so im not that worried, Mr Adder.
    Having homebuilt parts taking the load is much worse, from what ive learned

    Curing a rainy day:

    It's a far cry from this.....

    https://i.imgur.com/3yoV86m.jpg


    to this.....

    and even further to this.

    It is my hope to have fully articulated legs on this beastie although I will not go to the effort I went to with my Warlord giving the legs a "Toe in" and "Toe Out" capability. That was much too much and although workable I have never employed that feature when posing my Warlord.

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


    Finally I can get a glimpse of what I have been working toward for these past few weeks; with the hip connect scaled to size, and the upper leg finally attached at the knee. I can now make some inroads towards an actual knee structure. I am now thinking of cutting the knee joint into the upper tier of the greave. which I believe will look much better.

    Onward and Upward as they say...............

    Indeed...

    I don´t know if you have any plan to make the leg´s doors open and close, but my humble suggest

    Re: Blackadder's Attempt To Build a Lucius Patten Imperator Titan 'Invictus'

    Ha! Well I wanted to set up the model to see if the sizes were in scale but the upper torso was too heavy to suspend over the lower torso and legs. I instead Photo shopped a quick composite to present here. First the image of the torso and the legs and then the green screen composite. The legs right now are like a house of cards so mounting the body on them is not possible.

    As I said, the model thus far stands just over a meter tall (39.36 inches); a lot bigger than I had originally planned.

    Looks like it should should show GW what an Imperator SHOULD look like! Artwork released for Burden of Loyalty feels a bit on the small side.

    Reinforce and Detail Legs:

    Today I began to strengthen the legs with the Armour and detailed the corner spires...

    and ran out of plastic. Ha!

    I'll have to make a run tomorrow.

    Stallmate

    My local hobby supplier has let me down and I cannot get the large amount of strip styrene of a particular size I require. Normally I cut my own but even that did not produce enough.

    https://i.imgur.com/bjzZa47.jpg


    But every setback has a silver lining as it forced me to work on detail I was putting off 'til later. Which ultimately was most gratifying.

    It also relieved me of the tedious aspect of making eight of these constructs plus I am catching up on current Dinosaur theory.

    Always amazed by the wonderful progress on this project every time I check in on the thread. I hope you can find an alternative supplier.

    I usually have no problem but they were out of the size I require so I ordered enough to complete the Titan. I should have it by the end of the week.

    Looking More Like A Wedding Cake

    Everyday

    https://i.imgur.com/5FR5BVh.jpg


    A pains taking week and a lot of work but does it really reflect it; not so much.

    The spires, Minarets, whatever mimic the 3D work by measurement but the spire points seem a bit squat.....

    https://i.imgur.com/z4mddtV.jpg


    But in this image they look okay. Go figure.

    Anyway I'll try sanding them down some more. After all I have almost a millimeter to play with.
