New overlord!


Look, there's something on the left of your screen!


Gaze upon my magnificent sense of fashion, ye mortals, and despair!


Close up!

Let me know what you think! I'm currently working on an annihilation barge, which might take some time...

Seems good :-)
Although I would add a little wash on the metal parts, to give them some dept. I know necrons normally don't look dirty, but I wouldn't mind.

PS: Rusty necrons would be cool  ::heretic::

Anyone ever made a necron on a bike with a shotgun as a joke?

Ooh, that would be fun, with little greenstuff sunglasses for effect!

As for the wash; they do have some Nuln Oil on them, it's just that I paint Ironbreaker over all the raised areas afterwards, which makes them look all shiny. However I am working on some Immortals now, which I plan to give a bit older look, with leadbelcher->ironbreaker->2x nuln oil->agrax->stormhost silver rather than the leadbelcher->nuln oil->ironbreaker->stormhost silver I've been doing so far.

Also, I finished my annihilation barge!


Barge!


Side view, with a bit too much light on the top gun


Golden runes, just like Gankom asked  :icon_razz:


Accidentally switched these guys' seats, which is why they are staring at their control panels in utter confusion!


Final picture from the front!

I'm not sure I'm entirely happy with how the glowing bars on the top gun turned out. Honestly they look better in real life than they do on the photo. On camera it looks like I've painted the thing dark blue - white - dark blue - white, rather than the gradual build up from white, to fenrisian grey, to thunderhawk blue, and then back down to white again. If you look at the underside of the top gun in the side view, though; that's what it looks like in real life. I really need to get a better camera...

For some reason I just felt Tesla weapons should have a blue glow, rather than Gauss green. Anyway, let me know what you think! Next up are the immortals- hopefully I'll get at least the first one done this evening.

Very cool!  Looks like they are concentrating on the kill shot. I canít see anything living on the blast side of that gun.

Finished the first three immortals! Will probably finish the other two this weekend, time permitting.

They're making a come-back, or so I've heard :P.

Anyway, here's the full squad;



Henceforth, they shall be known as the O.S.M.E. squad, or "one stupid mistake each". One model I accidentally cut part of the shoulderblade off, another I actually cut off the part which connects the back of the head to the spine (both of which you cannot see). One model had the shade pooling on the upper legs, leaving a very dark spot on both. The fourth model's torso shifted forward a bit while the glue was drying, so he's perpetually scanning the floor for pennies. And the fifth one seemed to go alright until I stupidly dropped a glob of glue on the finished model, messing up five layers of paint. Sigh.

Oh well, on to the next unit! I'm thinking of doing the Wraiths next, with an old iron tail like the one above while the body itself will be Dalek-bronze;

- Basecoat of Warplock bronze
- Two layers of Nuln Oil Gloss
- Layer of Auric Armor
- Two layers of Agrax Earthshade
- Stormhost Silver highlight

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Nonsense! He's just very careful where he puts his feet. He just doesn't want to trip in front of senpai the overlord.

I really like the coloring on them. The guns look fantastic.

Wraith plan sounds very interesting. I'm excited to see how it turns out.

I read Ďpenniesí quickly as something else, with one less n and one more s and few letters shifted, and I was wondering exactly what type of Necrons these guys were...

More that one always had his eyes looking down searching for them. Like he had a bad experience once where some appeared out of holes in the ground, or maybe some kind of sick twist on a game of whack-a-mole.

He wants to give you a hug!


Side view. Just look at that magnificent tail!


Armour on the back.


Sort-of view of the underside...

This was a real fun model to assemble and paint! I think I spent more time on the legs than I did on the base, body, armour and tail, although that may be fatigue setting in. It is insanely hot where I live right now, so sitting under a bright lamp painting small details is a bit tiring at the moment. Which is why the edge highlighting is a bit rushed...

The tail didn't turn out entirely as I had hoped, but it is pretty nonetheless. Might have something to do with the tutorial I found using Liberator Gold, and the closest thing I had was Auric Armour- which is a bit more yellow. Still, I'm not complaining :).

Any comments, tips, feedback are more than welcome!
