Tack, mordoten. Looking forward to seeing those transporters painted...

Long time no hobby. Had a good game the other day and got the bug again. Time for a break from the Nurglies, though. Time for some Epic Titans. True to form, I will be completely ignoring the biggified platinum casts from GW. Apart from the unwanted price/size/quality hike, I quite like the look of the Epic 40K Warlord. So, lets see if I can make this happen.

Work in progress. I just got my hands on blue stuff. This is truly epic. Makes replicating missing parts a breeze. Also handy to do molds of original parts (such as titan weapons) you intend to modify. I am making two-part molds to use for pressmolding a mix of milliput to get the hardness and filability and milliput to get strength. Works out well enough methinks.

I quickly found out that pressure is key...

Some construction pics. Reaver and crusader robots.

Warhounds are to be repainted due to global warming.

Next: The tribulations of magnetizing, cleaning up, basing and, eventually hopefully, painting.

You got way better reasults that I got. I have to try miliput as well.

Granted, crusaders are not the easiest of test objects. The awkward cavity at the chest did not work well. I could probably do better, but I am old and lazy, so these will do for now.

Magnets. I always wanted to need them. Because reasons. So I might have gone a bit overboard. All three battle titans have magnetized weapons, torsos and bases (for easy storage). This was a fiddly learning curve, but I am pleased with the results.

Bases. One of the most satisfying things with an army of big stuff is that the bases are also very big. Plenty space for dioramas. Mine is not a particularly original approach, but it was great fun. 4 more 60 mil bases to go! :P

Really, I am not an expert by any means. But here is how i did it more or less.

As with all molds, you need enough to cover the master and quite a lot more. I got 4 rods of it, which is barely enough for most epic minis and parts

You also need a smallish open box capable of sustaining some pressure from the inside. I used a thick plastic thing from a bits storage unit i got from a DIY. You also need a rigid ”lid” fitting into the inside of the box. This will keep the pressure applied uniformly counteracting skewed results.

Then immerse the stuff into boiling hot water. Dont underdo this. Really hot so that it is truly goey after about 3 minuters.

Take half of it to form the bortom half of the mold. Put it into the box and cover the bortom roughly evenly. Put the master on too and push it in halfways. Be attentive and make sure your moldline runs where it is suppose to to avoid too much messy clearing up. Use e.g. a brushhandle and push into corners to help align molds later. Let cool until completely rigid again. Takes a couple of minutes. Reheat remaining stuff and cover the master and bottom half. If you want you could apply pressure in this step to make the mold as detailed and dense as possible. I used a Clamp. I have not used a rigid enough lid to distribute pressure but it has worked alright most of the times....

Again allow to cool. Then take the mold out. This is a bit fiddly. I used a sculpting tool. Carefully pry the two halves apart and remove master. Add your medium to both halves of the mold. Carefully. This is important. Use a tool to get it into the tricky bits. Make sure you have a minimum of surplus medium. Too much will distort shape and cause massive cleanup...

Join filled mold and put into the box lid on top and then clamp dont overdo it, check box for signs of warping. Wait 3-4 hrs (for my mix of milliput and GS).

Et viola...

And a scratchbuilt Quake cannon. Felt like I should have one.

Wow. Things have really gotten quiet around here...

I suppose I might as well post the last of the WIP pix I took yesterday. Reaver base. With feet.
