I always thought the Warhammer 40k titans looked cool, so I bought one recently just to see how it is to build and paint. It’s a bit of a challenge as I never built or painted a model like this.
In the box there’s 4 set of sprues, instructions, decals and a set of cards and rules for this unit in the Adeptus Titanicus game.
Assembly starts with the hip or pelvis.
Next is the upper legs.
First leg and complete (almost) foot.
First complete leg
Without knowing I had done my first mistake, but first a pic of both legs done.
Looking good, isn’t it? It wasn’t until I’ve glued both legs to the pelvis, that I noticed that the feet leaned outwards instead of standing flat on the ground.
So I started to break the feet away with the help of Tamiya thin and some tools. One leg that I had glued that day was fairly easy to remove, but the other one was assembled the day before, and actually ended up breaking at the fot joint.
After cleaning things up, I glued the right foot in the right place. And while that was drying I started with the torso.
This is how it looked like after the legs had dried and was glued to the pelvis again, and next to it the torso taking shape.
Adding more parts to the upper body.
Then there was a bit of weapons to choose from. I also had a bit of problem assembling the movable gun attachment point.
There are also three different head to choose from.
I haven’t choosen head or weapons yet, but it’s leaning towards the guns I’ve inserted and the left head.
A few more parts to assemble before I need to start painting, including all the armour plates, that will go on last.
