    This is becoming an absolute work of art. Are you going for a more armored look or a more gothic stylin' look.

    Good Question, I am not a big fan of the Mars Pattern look in IG armies (but somehow it seems suited to Chaos Armies) so I am leaning towards a Lucius Pattern look the same as my Warlord. The problem there is the castles above the shoulders which are decidedly not Lucius styling How to render these without looking like bunkers and pill boxes. It is a problem I'll be struggling with for the duration of this build.

    In reviewing your stated options Gothic Styling replete with 40K Chimera and Gargoyles.

    The Warmonger style is always an option, less walking cathedral and more walking gunboat.

    I'd figure out a way to do both, frankly. Build a kickass gothic 40k cathedral...that is removable from the top of a flat shoulder/back platform....and then have another things that's all 40k gun towers and such

    Possibly more options down the line

    All in good time guys. Thanks for the replies,

    This Will Happen:

    I've never felt so confident in a project as in this one.

    The mistake of last night bore fruit in that I did not have to rebuild the turn table piece.

    Even the Mid-Waist Platform is the right width for the hips

    But Lord please don't let it be that the head is too small

    The head on these are always small, compared to the shoulder stack.

    Thanks for the reply,

    First Engineering Deck:

    Situated below the reactor bay and the command deck this room contains (maybe) the electronic and navigation equipment plus the Adeptus Mechanicus altar and tech priests. I'll figure it out later once I get the other decks laid out.

    http://i.imgur.com/9ncdXOy.jpg


    Below are the inner walls of the deck and the center reactor core.

    http://i.imgur.com/SQAo709.jpg


    And the deck as it stacks up on the titan pelvis block again subject to change as i am not sure how much detail I should add to the top of the pelvic block.

    Hanging Knees:

    That's what they are called in shipbuilding They support the deck beams and are usually curved. In this case I shall leave these flat until I see how the rest of the detail manifests itself.

    Since I seriously have no plan at this stage other than the black and white video captures and this beautifully rendered 3D image I shall be taking what I deem best from both.

    http://i.imgur.com/jxlQ99A.jpg


    I changed the rear panel from round to flat so I can show the interior space.

    I do like the idea of the railing and balcony and will try to work it into the design just so i can display my Tech Priests.

    A Broken Precedent.

    I don't usually do this but it seems such a 'gimme' that I am running it by without testing the concept.

    http://i.imgur.com/hxXUwqf.jpg


    I want the neck to be movable on both axes' up /down and side to side and I went to great lengths to accomplish that with my Warlord.

    http://i.imgur.com/05bFt6y.jpg


    With the Emperor Titan I have a lot more room so I'm trying something different. A 3 inch to 2 inch PVC reducing coupling which gives a 20° up/down and side to side flexibility.

    http://i.imgur.com/gDjQ7cZ.jpg


    In the coming days I'll show how this works out but in the meantime I intend to show the interim work for better or worse because once done it will be difficult to reproduce.

    Neck Articulation:

    This was so much easier than the engineering gymnastics I had to go thru with the Warlord articulation. After stripping down the head to the basic neck components all it required was drilling four holes and threading them with a 6-32 tap. I countersunk the outer holes for flat headed screws.

    http://i.imgur.com/unU2vdq.jpg


    I then made a collar for the neck to slide into and mounted it into the middle deck forward bulkhead. Not glued because I want to be able to disassemble the model for painting and upgrading. Everything is as close a tolerance press fit as I can make it.

    http://i.imgur.com/CCUVtMC.jpg


    Centering the neck in the outer ring I secured the screws.

    http://i.imgur.com/0hombQK.jpg


    So after all that work I got about a 15 to 20° downward tilt to the neck.

    http://i.imgur.com/AwOfNFl.jpg


    Sliding the assembly together gives an idea of what the finished model will be able to do by way of articulation.

    http://i.imgur.com/7rEDYH1.jpg

    After reassembling the head I'll be able to see how much more downward angle I can add if needs be.

    Hate Mail:

    I'm gonna get a lot of hate mail because this damned thing works perfectly and no one is more surprised than I am.

    http://i.imgur.com/l8yW8Fd.jpg


    The range of motion is still rather limited but after I get the breast plate detail completed I can increase the range up/down and side to side by I'm guessing at least double.

    http://i.imgur.com/QMaF2j6.jpg


    I'm hoping to reassemble the head today so I can test out the balcony clearance.

    http://i.imgur.com/TR2NsNa.jpg


    It's really fun to sequence these thru my image viewer. Ha!

    This mechanism is actually a two axis gimbal.

    Amendment:

    Because of my fixation on having a railed promenade for my Tech Priests I mounted the head higher than the You tube Video Imperator.

    http://i.imgur.com/LubKGr5.jpg


    Since my version has a dynamic structure I feel the snaky conduits are out of place and the chin armour is too close to the deck.

    http://i.imgur.com/PltSEDM.jpg


    There is no need for the cramped claustrophobic appearance when all the space above is free to interpretation.

    http://i.imgur.com/m4wYGvX.jpg


    Of course I may just have added another 5 centimeters to the overall height.

    A Yard Stick Won't Be Enough:

    I'm beginning to think that even a meter is too conservative an estimate for the height of this behemoth.

    http://i.imgur.com/cBNuX3z.jpg


    The yardstick as presented indicate the 27 inches tall my Warlord stands.

    http://i.imgur.com/qPPFq0U.jpg


    The Triangular shoulders represent the width of the platform the cathedral superstructure sits on so even with out the legs the yardstick comes up short.
