Necron Overlord

Here’s the first HQ unit for my Necron army.

As you can no doubt see, I have a lot of improvement to do regarding stuff like the voidblade edging. Fortunately I have a second one of these on sprue in a Start Collecting box , so I’ll get another stab at one sooner rather than later.

Necron Warriors (and friends)

I’ve finally finished the first squads for my accidental new army.

And, since the current box comes with Scarabs, I’ve actually managed to complete them too 🙂

As you can see, I’ve kept it traditional and have painted them in classic Sautekh Dynasty colours because I both love the scheme and the current Dynastic Protocols are awesome.

I’m putting the finishing touches to a couple of command units at the moment and I hope to share the results soon.

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.
