    Hi Im new to Zealot - Hello!:wave:
    After finding out that alot of my plastic models had been severly damaged during transportation to my new house :curse: I decided to recycle them into a Warhammer 40K Mech.
    Unfortunetly I wasn't aware of Zealot until I had already laid down a base coat of Ultramarine Blue, and also have no before shots.

    I would like a little bit of help though?

    Should I add anything to the Feet?

    Should I add a head to the model or add a body then head?

    Best regards,

    Leba837

    Do you plan to make it into a Titan? It is too large for a dreadnaught. You have a turret ring available for a heavy weapons platform. Is it an Ork, Chaos or Imperial Walker.

    No its kitbashed from lots of old resin kits as the original post says.
    Also as I mentioned Iam new to Zealot, If this thread is in the wrong area please tell me the correct one to enter it into or move it, as I have seen other people showing resin models, thanx.

    Its painted Utramarine blue as a base colour as in the Ultramarine's (Space Marines)

    We do have some paper purist on this forum but the heading IS gaming and gaming accessories. But if you want to be on the safe side, there is a section called everything else. I have no problem with styrene. Anything done in plastic, can be replicated within reason into paper. Like right now with your pics, your project can be done in paper and cardstock as is now.

    The question still stands, is it then going to be an Ultra Marine Titan?

    Yes it would be a baby Titan(its about twice as tall as my dreadnought) , I didnt really have a scale for it when I started it.
    It is currently 5" Tall, 4.5" wide at the base of the feet.

    But Im not sure wether to add a head now, or to add an upper torso then head - as Ive been looking at my Dreadnought (Ultramarine) Games workshop designed them with just a main body an top of the legs.

    Then in this case, you don't need the upper torso but a heavy weapons turret/control room. Probably a melta cannon or some kind of Titan Killer weapons system. A crew of four should suffice.

    Check on the Dreadnaught or the Star Wars AT walker. Their articulated foot pads should be adequate but you may have to adjust the size to the legs.

    You would either have to copy it to styrene or mix media and do a paper on plastic.:wave::wave::wave:
