    Payneibs Warhound Titan

    Best get this started off then eh? In September I became older. I'm officially no longer in my 20's, so I treated myself to something I've wanted since I was 10.

    I don't usually like posting a whole bunch of WIPs as it seems a bit boring, but I guess this is worth the time.

    I'm about five hours work in, and am just barely pushing massive lumps of resin together. There's a lot of pinning to come too. No ideas when I'll touch a paintbrush to it.

    I actually glued a bit today! Two bits in fact! And they were properly pinned.


    And now the whole thing stalls while I spend about six months filling all the gaps on those two joins.

    I usually like to plan a logical build sequence, as I've found the best results for building and painting is to build a bit, paint it, build another bit, paint that, then put all the big lumps together at the end.

    But there's so much work on this it's unreal. I'll probably get to a stage where I've got loads of unpainted blocks and then do a big painting session before finishing. I just hope I don't burn out on either the building or the painting.

    I've finished putting the "Torso: rear" section together, with the exception of magnetising the void shield generators, but I can do that any time before painting. Probably get it done while the next batch of gap filler is drying. Next step: run the dremmel over the milliput and tidy that up, then make the "Torso: front" section fit, line the pin up that I'll put through the front of the waist ring, and then work out how I'll pin the two gun mounts/servitor stations.

    You're mad. And I like it. That's the trouble with the FW stuff (believe me, I know all too well!) that the pieces are nicely sculpted, but fitting together is ... optional without filler.

    Yeah, I've done a couple of Malcador chassis tanks and they were the same, though not quite as bad as this. The infantry and dreadnought kits I've done from FW have been spot on. I just don't think resin is the best stuff for big lumps.

    The funniest thing is the pile of excess resin: easily enough for a company of marines so far. I found a "Titans Owners Club" site. The flash from the Warlord weighs almost as much as my 2 year old son, and the bits fill a bath for washing. Mental.

    Copious amounts of filler.
    Any Forge World model should be about 20% filler at the least.
    Hell, when I got my LITTLE Squiggoth, which has separate legs, they didn't line up right and I had to SCULPT NEW SCALES onto the joins.

    BIIIIIG push on the titan this afternoon (littlun has been to grandma's).

    The torso is as far as I can take it without paint. Torso: rear is complete, torso: front is done with the exception of the bulkhead door which will be painted outside the model, and all pins are in (and matched up) to strengthen the join to the rear part, the head is done, with the exception of the moderati who will be painted outside the model. First few little bits of magnetising done: head armour is magnetised as it slipped a lot, and the void shield generators are done. I haven't magnetised the main carapace yet, as it doesn't seem to need it. If I have to later, it's not the end of the world.

    Now to paint the internals, before it all gets joined together.

    All the internals are sprayed up to get stuck in to as well.

    I did promise myself, not to post many many many boring WIPs of nothing. But the yellow base coat on the head armour has just taken two and a half hours:

    Not sure if this is putting me off of getting a titan or making me want to kick start my chaos lizards again Looking cool so far.

    "My Lord! We're surrounded!!"
    "Excellent! Now we can attack in any direction"

    DrakonTheNightLord: This fucking post... priceless
    GrrHero: General 40 and Draken are reason enough to play this game. You guys are hilarious.

    At this point, I'd definitely recommend doing a Titan. It's hard work, but as things start coming together it's very rewarding. Having said that, I haven't started the legs yet..... Lol

    It's looking really good now it's had a few coats of watery brown ink and I've started on the trim. Sooooo many layers. The brown took three layers for a smooth coat, and I stopped counting the yellow after ten coats. There's part of me that wanted to leave it bright, but erm, hello, "Grimdark"! Lol
