Denting the Living Metal Backlog

Once again, it’s been a while! Thanks to the ongoing worldwide pandemic my work has been extremely busy so I’ve not had as much time, indeed hardly any time, to get myself into a headspace where I’d be able to paint miniatures. However, even though the Situation is far from over, I’m begining to find enough time in the day to restart some projects and first off is my embryonic Necron army.

Just over a year ago, I was able to get a Lord and some troops ready and as I thought I’d be massively out of practice I decided to get another box of the now old style Warriors and Scarabs done to break myself back into things. I think I did ok.

I still have the contents of a Start Collecting box as well as the Apocalypse Outrider Detachment to start on, not to mention the Catacomb Command Barge my wife got me for my birthday last year (which started this project) and the contents of the 9th ed Indomitus launch box. I think I’m good for a while…

An Accidental New Army

06/30/2019 2 comments

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.
