Sometimes it pays to be pigheaded such as my obsessive insistence to retain the beautiful shoulder yoke so ably represented in Mr Joazzz2's 3D masterpieces of elegant Emperor Titans.
The other example of my OCD is to attempt to meld that yoke with the equally elegant mounting drums of the Forge World Alpha Warlord. i.imgur.com/VIZTmxK.jpg
Both designs are mutually exclusive as the Forge World shoulders are deeply ensconced under the shoulder carapace and the trunnion mount of Mr Joazzz2's is bulky and somewhat crude compared to the rest of his revolutionary design..i.imgur.com/yyTlbXu.jpg
I am hoping to achieve a middle ground compromise but this first image is a trifle unnerving. The arm seems to be hanging too low and the lower edge of the weapon seems to be at the level of the hip axis.i.imgur.com/CZK70Lx.jpg
Referring to the FW Warlord model and Mr Joazzz's rendering this is also the case but with the body incomplete enough to support the weight of one main weapon I cannot tell for sure.i.imgur.com/DGEu413.jpg
This last image I could not resist posting because it show my inner sanctum replete with plasticard stock which demonstrates the depth of my compulsions. Ha! i.imgur.com/rRRwc6o.jpg
