There’s quite a lot to do in this step, really, including making sure the shoulders are strong enough to hold not only the arm weapons, but the top weapons as well. But it all comes together with some patience
Now that we’ve got the legs built, we now know how big the base needs to be. Since the model owner definitely wants a base, we have to figure out HOW to make one just for this model!
A massive chunk of thick plywood, a few power tools and presto chango we’ve got a base!
Okay, well it wasn’t THAT easy, but with the magic of video editing it can be!
With the base completed (we still have to put all the stuff on the base!) we can carry on with the rest of the model, including the torso and weapons.
Alright! Finally we’re getting the model parts attached to other model parts! Hopefully in the right order 🙂
This is where we start the assembly proper – beginning with the feet and legs, just like the instructions tell us to!
Next up: putting this sucker on a base!
With all the parts trimmed properly, it’s time to get washing! Warm, soaping water and a toothbrush (and a larger brush for the REALLY big pieces) is all you need to help the glue and paint stick to the surface of the model.
You might think this is a fairly simple step, and for most models it is! But this is the biggest resin model made by Forge World, so you know it’s not going to be simple! Watch along as we show you how to wash parts like a Fabricator General!
Our Warlord titan build continues! Of course, before we can actually build anything, we have to remove the parts from the different sprues, just like any plastic model kit.
Following our unboxing video of the Warlord Titan body, here’s a video showing the unboxing of every single available weapon for the Warlord!
Because you have to buy the head for the Warlord separately (there are a couple different option heads), the head is included in the video as well.
This isn’t just an unboxing video – like all of our unboxings, this is more of a close-up look at the various model parts, checking for mold slips, flashing, holes and any other issues or problem areas we’ll need to go over before we start assembly.
Next step: cutting off all the casting gates and sprues!
Yep, we are building the Forge World Warlord titan – our biggest project yet!
And the first titan we’re building! …starting with the biggest titan available 🙂
So here’s how the kit was sent to us:
And here’s where we’ve gotten to so far:
Because there are so many of them, we’ll have another unboxing video just for the weapons!
