Forge World Phantom Titan
« on: September 13, 2011, 11:57:33 PM »

The parts mostly cleaned up and layed out. The sprue is from a falcon.

The Feet



2 pins in each toe 2 toes a foot.


Then i used 2 pins to pin the toes together.



Then I used 3 pins to hold the 2 parts to the ankle cover together.



Next i pre-drilled holes in the heel connector to attach to the ankle cover and to the toes.


Then laying the toes in the ankle cover, I glued down the heel connector to the ankle cover and let it dry. Once it was dry I drilled out the hole and pinned it down to the ankle cover (just the left hole)




Then I drilled the heel joint out and the heel and put a pin in it but didn't glue it.



Then i glued the toes in place and left the pin hanging down on the heel. That way I was able to position the toes with the heel just holding it in place and was able to make sure it ended up flat.




When it was dry I added 2 pins to hold the toes in place. 1 through the heel connector and 1 through the toes into the ankle cover.




Then I glued just the round heel joint on with the pin hanging into the table joint. When it was dry I drilled out and glue in a pin through the heel  joint to the connector. Then I was able to add the heel on and left it to dry.


I did manage to get the nuts added to the bottom of one foot.



One of the finished feet. 13 pins a foot. I used finish nails for the pins and a hack saw to cut them.

these titans looks so much bigger because they are not a shit block on legs... good luck with the ball joints
Children yet, the tale to hear, Eager eye and willing ear, Lovingly shall nestle near.  In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die: Ever drifting down the stream --Lingering in the golden gleam --Life, what is it but a dream?

Going from memory just the foot had

Center piece(1), back toe (2 or 3), Individual toes (6).

So each foot was about 9 piece's. I did the same and threw a couple pins in each foot for stability. I think the legs including the feet are the hardest part about the model because you have to plan way ahead for stability.

I haven't completely finished the torso yet but its been a breeze compared to the legs.

Just ordered $35.00 worth of magnets so I can magnatize the hands, guns, halo fins, and head.
16 ring magnets and 6 plates with 2 holes each. That way i can add a pin through the magnets.
Also got 1/8" Steel rod. I was looking for brass but couldn't find it anywhere around the right size. steel is just as good, right?

The legs mounted to the base which is 11"x14". the straight leg has 2 pins. One going from the foot in to the bottom of the leg and a second one that runs all the way through the knee connecting the bottom of the leg to the top. The bent leg has 3 pins. One the same as the first connecting the foot to the leg and then 2 in the knee joint 1 connecting the top and the knee and one connecting the bottom and the knee. if you look you can see the pin hole and the end of the pin in the front of the knee and the pin connecting the bottom to the knee is visible just not in the pictures.
The waist is connected currently by one pin that runs through both legs and the waist. i am planning to add 2 more pins to keep the waist from twisting. In the second picture you can see the hole on the side of the leg that connects it. The bolts holding the foot up i am planning on hiding. The phantom will be standing on something. I was thinking a building that is being crushed.

Looking good, for sure. Are the vines going to be green or brown (or something else)? Perhaps with the occasional flower?

I am thinking black like the Biel-tan thorn design because that's the craftworld I play. I am probably not going to add flowers though.

Finished the vines on one part of the holofins.


Any thoughts or comments would be awesome. I still need to sand off some of the extra glue.

From an Eldar point of View even though its a machine of Death they tend to try and find poetry in battle. I would go with the 2nd one.
I ride in on my Bike with my Hat of awesome and say Nay this place should be on fire.

I prefer the second picture as well. I think the thorns not only look better, but they also should be a bit more structurally sound.

 First one it looks more "Get out of my way!!!" and it just looks totally awasome at that... but the model, it looks good!!
