Siph has been continuing on his assembly of the now named: Dominus Victoira. Here is what he has to say:

Hi TOC, I have embarked on the journey of titan construction. So far going good, as 30mm Madness says, it's the journey not just the destination. So slow and purposeful...
I am using JB Weld Plastic Weld and so far, its the greatest two part epoxy resin I have ever used, very very strong and backed up with pinning in some places. Twin syringe type applicator so mess free too!
I considered several names, Dominus (latin for Lord... Warlord...) and my Warhound is already Canis Bellum (latin for War, so Dominus Bellum (Lord of War... Warlord) is out. Considered Dominus Exitum (Lord of Destruction), Dominus Mortem (Lord of Death) but finally settled for the more regal Lord of Victory - DOMINUS VICTORIA of the Legio Astorum.

More pictures and details of construction over at my Blog (www.weemen.blogspot.co.uk) where I will be blogging a construction diary in parts, useful if you are planning your own. But please check out Dave Taylor Miniatures videos and TOC Resources tab up top for 30mm Madness tips, been great so far.

The torso has come along quite nicely and looks very sharp and cleanly built.

Good use of pinning to give the model strength.




The superstructure is really taking shape.






The extent of the magnetization is really paying off on this model.

  1. Sensible move waiting for armament. My warlord will have the bellicose volcano cannon, but I'm waiting for the power claw release before assembly. My worry is where these will mount in the shoulder.

  2. The claw has the same mount, however it lacks a "counter-weight" behind the shoulder like the other weapons so it will need some kind of mounting system in addition to the common pin through the center, I've elected to use a powerfull N42 9x25mm rod magnet (http://www.guysmagnets.com/view-product/9-mm-x-25-mm-n42-high-grade-neodymium-rod) it can easily hold the weight along with a vertical pin.

    Really enjoy the building of mine. Been waiting for the fist aswell. Finally got one at Warhammer Fest.

    1. Thanks. Think I've settled on Plasma Sunfury and Bel Volcano now.
