The initial planning, fitting and set-up for the Ultra Black Atrapos base. Both the lascutter beam and the graviton blast were modeled around a 1/8” rod made of high carbon tool steel - I needed to cut it to length with bolt cutters. This is the same rod I’ll be using for building Titans in the future - it’s extremely difficult to work with and cut but it’s strength can’t be beat. I did not want to chance it at all so I went way overboard to ensure that no bending or mis-shaping would occur over time. The Cerastus Knights don’t weigh too much but its always better to double or triple the structural integrity of a project than it is to risk it. The rods go most of the entire length of each gun (through the barrels, of course), all the way through the beams themselves and then 1 to 1-1/2” into the heavy resin Secret Weapon Miniatures terrain pieces. The angle of the beams are at about 70 degrees - straight up and down would look goofy whereas if it was to much of an angle, the whole thing would just fall over. The Knight will look like it is in the initial stage (lower foot just touched off from the ground) of jumping away from the tank, pivoting and turning its torso mid-air and blasting the tank before landing again - maybe crushing some foot soldiers under those titanic feet, who knows. This is a very difficult thing to pull off and requires way more work and time than I expected... and there’s still more to do. Once again, this project is running away on me... sometimes I wish I could just keep things simple. 😰 #monsterlegion#monsterenergy#scifiart#art#artist#painting#gaming#hobby#toy#toyart#scalemodels#miniatures#models#miniaturegaming#tabletopgaming#wargames#wargaming#paintingwarhammer#paintingforgeworld#commisionpainting#paintingminiatures#miniaturepainting#warhammer#warhammer40k#w40k#horusheresy#spacemarines#imperialknights#gamesworkshop#forgeworld
