    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.

    Reinforce and Detail Legs:

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

    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.

    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.

    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.....

    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.

    Sorry to have been so long in responding:

    The tedium of making dozens of these structures; revising, chopping and rebuilding better representatives of them seemed like not the most interesting aspect of this build.

    I finally have enough, eighteen, for the first tier of the greaves and, with slight modifications, I have devised of a better way to produce the second tier, eight in all, that is less labor intensive.

    Couple that with an abscessed tooth, a root canal, and a mild case of the flu made me less than amenable to communicating my meager progress with my peers.

    The castle portion of this construct will necessitate a lot of repetitive work and no I am not going to "cast" or 3D print any portion of the requisite components. In my warped OCD way I consider that cheating

    Of course I am hypocritically not above using bitz.

    To be a bit self serving I'm feeling much better and the past few day have been most productive. The gabled naves in the first level greaves give the appearance of homogeneity even though they aren't exactly the same.

    The first attempt at a stain glass insert for the naves for lack of a better name.

    A side by side comparison I stumbled across on my imgur preview index. Even though my Emperor will be taller the proportions are pretty close. Whew!

    Note to self, "I have to shorten the second and third tier. And hip region needs to be beefier."
