Renegade Knight Titan #1

Yup. I caved. Two (2) Knight Titans and a piece of scenery for the price of a single Knight Titan box? That equation was just too tempting and a bit of a no-brainer.

So what do I intend on doing? A Vlka Fenryka (Space Wolves) Knight Titan, of course, and a Traitor Renegade Knight Titan. I started with working through how to magnetize/modularise the weapons, starting with the Avenger Gatling Cannon. 

"Why this one first?" I hear you ask. Well, I figure, regardless of whatever Knight I start building, I will be using this puppy. The Renegade can carry dual Avenger Gatling Cannons, And I want the option to swap out this, if I want to use a Meltagun or Battle Cannon.

So enough with the talking, what did I do?

First I assembled the receiver end, or arm end of the weapon. Interestingly, I inserted some styrene telescopic tubing into this side, and butted the large diameter piping up against the far rear cap (the one with the Mechanicum skull), whilst I was assembling the arm.I glued a few short pieces to the outside of the pipe to bulk it out and fit snuggly into the aperture.

Next up, I initally added the smaller diameter pipe into the back of the Avenger Gatling Cannon. I found that it fit better, if I pushed some larger diameter tubing in first. The larger diameter was a tight tolerance fit, so it made it easier to centre the smaller diameter tube into this when gluing.

This is what it looked like when I lined the two sides up.

And this is the Cannon seated to the arm receiver.

Now it's off to get cleaned, prep'd and washed, ready for painting.
