Hello Titanseers, thanks for dropping by. The next instalment of my Warhound journey is dealing with the head and spare weapon and the base to make the legs super stable and strong. Above shows the head armour cowling sprayed with Army Painter Daemonic Yellow and some pre-shading of blended Averland Sunset to form the darker areas. The eye optics were custom resin eyes to replace the plain plastic 'window' lenses.
The base is 6mm MDF cut and sanded. I then marked out where the titan physically connects to the base, the Warhound is a nimble Titan, so not flat footed and up on raised toes. I had some great black screws from a plastic shed build so ideal for fastening the resin foot to the base, these will take the majority of the loading meaning the toes won't be stressed too much.
Using a Forstner bit, on the underside I made a recess for the screw head so the base sits flush.
The other foot, again with natural slate chips - they will be left natural, just sealed with varnish. The toes will be epoxy resin glued to base and slate chips.
The completed base, with tufts and drybrushing applied. The feet will be sealed with matt varnish along with the base whilst the rest of the titan gets a clear satin lacquer, this makes the feet look 'dusty' compared to the armour plates.
Just construction and sealing to do. Next post will be the completed Titan and Scout Maniple! (Yes, I now have a squadron of Scout Titans!?!)
