    Here is the titan as uploaded, the green parts i have gone in to add polygons such as the upper legs shown above, while the blue components i have grabbed from other models ( such as the hip and knee pads from the Warlord scaled down )

    the Carapace and head are the two i need to do the most work on, but with the complex curves needing to be smooth, i feel its currently well beyond my ability to fix

    I really must remember to look at this thread when I am at home. So many images are blocked here at work :(

    also, when my plan for a full 3d printed titan Maniple hits the table, that will be straight up 20k points
    the warlord titan is 6k points on his own, the 2 reavers are 4k points, and the 3 warhounds are all 2k points
    then add my imperial knights, marines and guard, and i will likely be close to or even over 40k points

    For the first time in a while, I am genuinely excited to see what comes out of the Las Vegas Open Day.

    We know Abaddon is coming in less than 26 days (I'm assuming it will sell out instantly) and that there is the new Shadowspear boxed set with a fu**-ton of new Black Legion and Primaris marines (all new sculpts apparently).
    The new Primaris scouts look absolutely epic and I regret having recently bought a box of the old ones.

    Spotted on an FB group... several things jump out at me

    A) Armiger knight from FW
    B) looks suspiciously 3d printed ( you can see the lines on the smooth carapace, edges and the base of the claw )

    I was under the impression that Forge World have been using printers for several years now to reduce the cost of resin casting moulds and produce stronger models than the often brittle resin ones.

    I misunderstood about the Shadowspear news, it's not out until March and we have to wait for details.

    I reckon I'll pick up a box for all the new Primaris models.

    I know they've been CAD designing a lot (Last I heard the character series was still hand sculpted), so it makes sense that they'd prototype at the very least on a 3D printer or several.

    Yup, the last I heard that made sense was that, whilst some models are still from hand-made masters, more are moving towards CAD designed with 3D printed masters with the silicon moulds for the resin then made directly from the cleaned 3D prints. Depending on the tech used to print them, it is entirely possible to see some layering still present.
