Noxious Blightbringer

This is the third and final unit that I completed in time for last Friday’s game.  I’m particularly pleased with this one as I only realised on the Wednesday evening before the game that I was significanly under the points limit and try as I might I could not find any realistic way of closing the gap.

In despiration I resolved to get this chap ready in time.  It was touch and go, but I managed to build and paint him in less than a day.

Following on from yesterday’s post, here’s the second unit I managed to compete.

Some of you may remember that in my Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge from last year, I painted up my first Myphitic Blight-hauler, now finally I have completed the squad 🙂

Okay, okay, I know this is not a Necron unit – but I have a really good excuse!

Last Friday I had arranged a game with my mate Bruce (of Games and Theory), who happens to be the husband of one of my childhood friends (small world etc…).  Given that there was no way I’d be able to get my Necron force ready in time, I decided to park my shiny chaps and return to my… less-shiny chaps and get a few more units ready.

I had a long-overdue week off work and with my wife’s permission, I was able to devote the first three and a half days to getting this and a couple more units ready.

I’ll post up the other units over the next couple of days, and if I can make sense of the photos from the game, maybe some kind of battle report.

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.

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

06/30/2019 1 comment

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.

I really can’t believe it, not only have I finished my army in time for Saturday’s tournament, I actually finished within the fifty days I arbritrarily set for the task!

Today I finished my Lord of Contagion.
