    This looks quite interesting indeed.
    It looks like it will make for a fun build.
    What size are you looking at making it?

    pics of the real stuff now.
    I'm a lousy builder specially when testing...

    i've added a picture of the size i'm planning for the ships, the largest will be a3 size max, this is a size in between (22 cm).

    Regarding the warhound it's planned to be the exact same size as the model, with textures easy to modify. Some parts are just images(like the lower leg armor) and others full 3d. Cockpit seems rather empty now but maybe i'll add it later. the space for it is there.

    hope you guys enjoy

    Both of these models look incredible. I was wondering if anyone had tried building BFG ships (to game scale or otherwise) and I have found very little other than 2D models on the net. I would love to build this when you finish designing it. I am liking your take on the Warhound, too. I always preferred the more classic, rounded appearance of the Mars Pattern Titans compared to the boxy Lucius designs, albeit Lucius is easier to convert to card models.
    Looking forward to seeing the end results and trying the patterns for my own Gothic Fleet and Legio Titanicus

    hi everybody, had really little time and progress is slow, but the leg is taking shape.
    first part is easy to build but the second needs to be further simplified

    a few pics of the 3d model and the attempt at building it.
    it doesen't look like much yet, but with the textures should be ok.

    The leg and feet, i think are the most complicated parts on the real model, i'm looking for a replacement for the tubes but their size is nothing i can find easily so it will be a pain to do all the pistons in paper :cry:

    sorry for no news for so long, been really busy lately.
    thank you all for the nice comments, keeps me coming back to this forum.

    a small update, all pieces have been measured to the real thing and match nicely. I'm looking forward to finishing the entire leg and start the armor parts. So far all tests show that the overall model will be very solid if you use 250gs/m2 paper.

    I have been also modifying the head, but that requires a few changes before I can show it.
