Our biggest project is alive!
The challenge is to create a 40K (or at least AT scale) hyperdetailed Imperator titan.
- The model will be remixed with only public or free STLs so we can share it freely
- The titan will inspire in the Titandeath novel cover, with flat upper platform and gothic style
- Size: Following FW scale, it will have a hight of 95-100 cms.
- The base model will be the old epic imperator model, a fantastic and totally accurate model you can find (yet) free on cults Here
- The other base model will be the Grant Johannes imperator titan, modern-style, you can find also free Here
- The first part is the head, already finished, you can download in this web
Work started with the leg bastions. Here you can see it in WIP in a comparative with the Grant´s model bastion (incomplete, only for reference), the epic model one and our model. It´s completed at AT detail level. What do you think? What design do you like more? comments welcome in the message board bellow.
Feet and bastions almost finished at AT level of detail. Front and rear view. Added a rear armour, rebuilt cannon, rebuilt cathedral-like doors and general decorations, all from public STLs I use the same inspiration for the stone walls that those from my gothic knight some months ago. Hope you´ll like it. Comments in the message board bellow. This part can give a general idea of the final look of the titan.
Added more detail to the leg bastions. Working at the limit of my computer posibilities... used different details in both bastions to make them differents too. Here we have the right bastion.
Legs completed including feet, bastions (non mirror) and Femur. next hips and optional leg armour (I like it more without armour)...
After finishing the legs I realize that I cannot reach 28mm level of detail, my computer is getting old and It cannot manage that gigantic files with fluidity, specially the bigger ones like the torso. So I can only reach this level of detail, in my opinion AT level, this is the maximum... A pity. I will try to reach this level at least in all the titan parts.
Torso almost finished. A mix design between the old imperator model and the new model. Featuring the lower basilica, void shields, frontal armour and complete interior, with room for a big plasma generator coming soon.This is the biggest part in the titan, but fits for AT scale in small printers like my mars 2 Pro.
The main weapon of the titan: the Plasma annihilator "novawraith" pattern. Big as a lesser titan and the most impressive weapon you can place in the battlefield. A remix from the starfury plasma destructor. In the images bellow side knight for size comparison.
The internal plasma generator is ready, 2 models to choose :-)
The first building in the upper platform, the bastion with the quake cannon. Mixed from a Karl Gerat german cannon and a titan quake cannon. I f someday I can make the 28mm version it will feature complete crew and more internal decorations. (I love the mechanicum angels statues in front) :-)
I tried to get a look half church - half hangar for this part. I´ll put the main gothic decoration in the cathedral dome that will be the second building after this one.
Hips - modern version with armour, you choose :-)
Hips - Version classic style "Macho man"
The classic upper platform, with the front bastion featured last day and the new cathedral building, the central point of the upper part, next weapon towers and main back tower.
The upper platform is ready, with quake cannon frontal bastion, central main cathedral dome, 2 front towers, 2 lateral chapels, 4 gun towers (mobile, you can turn the gun) and one back volcano cannon tower.
The model is complete! let´s start the trial printing :-)
Finally, the project is complete. We have an imperator titan at AT scale (+-22 cms. high) with a good level of detail, based in the old classic model and very close to the Titandeath design, as wanted.
To use in 40K it should be scaled up to 100cms (X4).
Now it´s time to start test printing and discover if it can be made physical. Stay tuned!
I remade the legs, mixing in a sinlge STL bastions and femur. Now the femur fits perfectly and lowered the bastion to get closer to feet. I prefer this way, but I´ll include both options for people to choose.
First test print on legs. It prints good, but the femur doesn´t fit perfectly in the knee, it needs some sanding. I used the original union model wIthout modification, so it´s a problem from the base model. And the bastions get a bit over the feet. So is more realistic, with the hydraulics elevating the titan, but I think a prefer it lower placed...
The bigger parts, the more troublesome, print OK, so I think the model is printable :-) The plasma cannon looks awesome. Now, let´s continue printing and start assembling.
Note the tiny fences in the torso sides doesn´t print in my Mars 2, it´ll need a 6K printer. I´ll add replacement parts for these pieces.
The test print is finished. The titan prints OK, and some problems has been solved in the models. I´ve slighty scaled up the platform and used the lever in the torso for the weapons to fit better. Also used the complete legs option, less troublesome. The tiny fences in torso and small chapels don´t print in my printer, I should need a 4K or 6K printer to get it properly... apart for that, in AT scale is perfectly printable, so... it walks! :-) I´ll continue in adding more details and start receiving feedback to improve the model, and later try to cut in pieces for printing in 40K scale. Added a instructions guide inside the files with parts diagram, instructions and optional parts. Bellow is the link to download it freely from Mega, later I´ll put it in Cults3D too. Hope you like this remix project and enjoy!

17-4-22: Reinforced the base of the platform down spires, they were too thin for printing in a 2K printer
18-4-22: Rebuild the upper gun towers. Some people had issues printing them, so I splitted each tower in 2 parts (3 for the back towers) and extra-repair both of them.
Now the problems seems to be solved.
24-4-22: Added 2 new optional buildings for the platform, a tower bridge to be placed in front of the main basillica, and a rounded tower bridge for the sides.
27-4-22: last updates, 2 small optional towers for the central place in the platform (place at your choice), replacement fences for the tiny torso fences (sides and back) and church circular fences that doesn´t print well in 2K printers and also replacements for the tiny tower windows and a AA gun for aircraft defense to be placed in the rear platform or in the rounded bridge optional part.
And as a reward only for my kindly donators, a control room inside the titan´s body, over the reactor, and a optional landing pad for the back of the platform with a Arvus lighter included!
Soon photos of the totally complete model with all the optional parts included.
