    Main Weapon Yoke:

    This turned out much better than I hoped it could. I'm basing it on the most ephemeral of images and I had only a smidgen of the overall detail.

    Tomorrow I hope to have it mounted beneath the superstructure decking.

    Once mounted I'll see how it melds with the overall plan but for now it sure looks like it means business.

    A Quicky:

    Just a quicky before I quit for the night.

    Requests Honored:

    I received a few requests for more information and photos so here's a different view of the same stage of the build.

    The lollipop shaped appendages jutting from both sides of the model will eventually be the main weapons yoke. It is a torsion box assembly built up layers of styrene 2 ft X 4 ft Florescent light lens $14 bucks a pop at the local HomeDepot. I am using this material extensively throughout this model mainly because it is much cheaper than Hobby Store styrene and is a great weight saving building material.

    I commandeered the Master Bedroom in my home for a Den/Workshop/TV/computer room as it was the second biggest room in the house and all we did was sleep in it; ahem......

    Finally it's my work cubical that is constantly being messed up. For some unknown reason I cannot keep it orderly and I hate wasting precious building time cleaning and vacuuming styrene dust. The above rear view shows I've done precious little to the interior decking and have used partially built subassemblies to buttress up the deck to take these images.

    Now with the yoke firmly in place I can address building the interior decks of which I believe there will be five including a railed walk around exterior veranda so Belisarius Cawl can watch the battle from above the fray. These interior decks will be in addition to the Cathedral/fortress superstructure so there will be plenty of room for accommodations of the Officers of the Church.

    One of my greatest fears was to diminish my Warlord's stature by building an Emperor Titan. In a side by side comparison the Warlord which stands about 28 inches tall will be dwarfed by the 40 inch tall Emperor.

    I suppose that cannot be helped.

    Wow, serious progress has been made again! That is shaping up to be quite the impressive monstrosity! Full of gothic grandeur and threat, and does indeed have a hefty plausibility to the construction.
    In the nightmare future of the 41st millennium, there is no time for peace. No respite. No Balance. There is only War.

    Thanks for the reply,

    Unbounded Mania

    My mania is boundless once I fixate on a project. I mistakenly took a shortcut in the initial construction of the chest turrets and have found a better way to reproduce the Gothic windows indicated by the pointer arrow.

    I may or may not rebuild the other four penetrations above the wooden turret spheres but I do like the carrying on of the Gothic theme with styrene strip stock

    Meanwhile I'll complete the two single window sets and prepare them for installation.

    A couple of skulls and gewgaws and they are ready for installing.

    BTW I've found the author of this titan version on Deviant Art; one Boazzz who has produced a fantastic version of a Emperor Titan that I shall be following (with a Few modifications) for the rest of this build.

    A tip of my hat to Mr Joazzz for his monumental inspiration.

    I Gotta Learn To Work Faster:

    Wow, two days in the making and I'll wager no one will ever notice them when this thing is complete.

    That is until the stained glass windows are lit up.

    But seriously I've got to make about forty of these things in various shapes and sizes and I need to get an assembly line going once the basic castle architecture is complete.

    These two were just a test run to get an idea of the feasibility.

    Gack! I misspelled his sobriquet! It's Joazzz not Boazzz. Take a look at his breathtaking 3D renderings on 'DA' and 'Facepunch'

    Here's two more examples of his work.

    I heightened the contrast on the image below to accent the detail.

    With these two shots I can pretty much extrapolate what needs be fabricated. They are so much better than that which I have been working from up 'til now.

    Play Time:

    All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. I got a hankering to do some detail so finding and modifying an Imperial Eagle I found on google and tracing it on a sheet of styrene is where I am right now. I intend to make half a dozen of these and some into a bas relief but first I'm starting with a sheet of 0,020 styrene for a durable pattern.

    So There's An Eagle Back There?

    Two days of cutting out Eagles and this is the result. Talk about exercise in futility, but at least I'll know that they are there.

    Maybe after they are gilded they'll show up better. Anyway that's how they appear on the 3D model.
