So here are the promised pictures of my WIP Chaos Warhound Titan. The plans were from the bwc-archive Yahoo Group. I’ve been using various thicknesses of plastic card, foam board and plastic strips. I’ve done some sketching on the model with a Sharpie to get an idea of markings and adjustments to the model.
So far it is really sturdy (and heavy…) so I’m not too worried about it getting knocked around in a game (unlike a paper version).
The back took some work as the paper templates had nothing on the back side. I liked the look of the pipes on the Forge World model and imitated that. Also the vents were built one fin at a time because I couldn’t find anything that fit correctly.
The engine top is from the Manufactorium set cut down to fit inside. This idea was from a project being done on dakka dakka. The wire grid is wielded metal fencing.
The top is simply set into place so I can easily access the engine when I start painting.
Under the shoulders I created a simple mounting for the arms. This is just a PVC pipe joiner with a magnet glued at the end and capped. The arms will them have the matching magnet in a pipe fitting that goes around this stub.
Although the guns would be a fun next step I think it would be best to start building up the feet and legs so this thing can at least stand. I’m still unsure what I’m going to do for the head, I want to do some deamon looking head, but unsure how I would build that (my sculpting isn’t so great). Any ideas would be welcomed!
