So many little bits... o so many little bits...
I have to add the side guard on the thigh, add some ribbing on the leg frame and some rivets (what is the reccomended rivet size again?)

I'm thinking i may need to ad some 'ribbing' between the back of the big piston and the back of the leg, so it casts properly, that could be trimmed away with a hobby knife like flash
(ps this will be the left leg)
(pps youtube vid changed to truesilver armour. I can't get a good avi render out of my program on this machine so I just installed virtualdub for avi creation. great little program! with my system set up to rock and roll now i will finish the leg tomorrow, onto the feet and titan underpants.)

On the back of the leg, where you show 2 pistons and a pair of cables going to those pistons, I suggest you make that into a single piston with a single cable.

The undercut is minor, but having a single piston (instead of the appropriate two) will save you some hassle for casting, and making the change won't 'ruin' the model for any reasonable person.

I was thinking of kind of plugging that middle area up with a triangular blocking piece extending out to the top of the 'ankle' piston. Should fix a few probs, will post example tomorrow.

When you design the crotch, be sure to put the word "TITAN" on there.

If it wasn't floating I'd be totally fooled into thinking you were just taking photos of a finished model! That's just amazing work

Lightwave native renderer with 3 lights, no gi in this shot but rendering an anim using final gather, gnats pube of a difference in look though. Surface is reflective with an hdr image map. I do lots of light setup and surface fakery at my job ;-)

Ps, this is the paint scheme for my epic/40k gk army- have the chrome paint and airbrush in the mail
