An Accidental New Army

It was my birthday near the start of June and my wonderful and extremely understanding wife bought me a 40K model.

As she knows me better than anyone and because she’s a professional artist, I trust that she’ll get me something that’s both cool and something that I’ll like to paint.

I also half-hoped that she’d get me something totally unexpected and I was not disappointed!

She got me a Necron Catacomb Command Barge!

This is cool for four reasons:

•1 – It’s a really cool model;

•2 – It will enable me to try out new painting techniques;

•3 – It’s from an army I don’t have, therefore…

•4 – I GET TO START A NEW ARMY TOTALLY GUILT FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, that’s what I’m doing 🙂

As I’ve never painted Necrons before, I picked up a box of on-spruce Warriors cheap on eBay. Tonight I managed to paint one.

Aside from the slightly botched assembly (he’s not hunched over), I think it went okay. Moreover, I really enjoyed the process so I’m looking forward to getting his mates done and, hopefully, on the table sooner rather than later.
