When You Show Me a Scratch Built Titan...

...I have to make one too! So I have decided to take on a huge project, scratch building a titan! Who knows how long it will take me to give Up but I WILL try. I'm on the lookout for cheap plasticard and PVC pipes. I have been think about what to use for the large parts I can leave of one side and fill them with expanding foam for support the shave off the top and cover it with more plastic.that way I have a lightweight but sturdy Warhound Titan. So far I have been working on the templates. I brought them into photoshop and created designs to make it not look as blocky as it is designed. Ill be arming it with two, yes two, Turbo Lasers! Of couse I will magnetize the arms and torso for easy storage. It will be painted light grey and mustard yellow. I believe that is one of the paint schemes of the Titan Legions, and it also matches my Red Scorpions quite well. If anyone knows a website where you can find plasticard cheap please do tell me I need all the stuff I can get.

2:30 in the morning and I have nothing better to do than make a post on my blog? I was tired early today, but I guess sleeping for 3 minutes completely rested me... Anyways I haven't really done much since I last ppink
Hosted, The land raider looks almost the same. However I have been working on my Daemons of Chaos. the Pink Horrors look great, but I won't be able to get a picture until this weekend.

New on the gaming side of things... I might be going to NOVA Open, probably not because its a four day trip in which i'll probably end up paying $100 to get destroyed in 8 games of 40K. I'm just not at the skill level yet, I think.

Maybe I'll do a Vassal battle report tomorrow! That could be interesting...

Whats better than a good ol' Land Raider Crusader to transport your sparky and his buddies into the fray? That would be a $30 Land Raider!


I was able to pick up a Land Raiser someone was selling for $30. Albeit this thing will require a bunch of attention, I don't mind that kind of thing. I was going to convert parts of the thing anyways so I figured if I had the Green Stuff out may as well save $36 and patch up a few holes.

First off I decided to take off everything on the front of the sides. I'll either try do a mural including the Red Scorpion icon, or I'll just do a big icon.


One of the major flaws was that there was a chunk taken out of the side sponson where it meets the tank. So to fix that I cut out some plasticard and kept fitting and shaping as necessary.


Eventually I got this, all I need to do is glue it in and smooth over the seams.

Thanks for reading, I should have another update soon!
