Keep up with the momentum! I've been torn with my Deathmarks specifically (not that I'm doing anything painting wise that is) whether to keep them with my old scheme or use them to test out the new Contrast scheme I've been developing (or even to give them a bit of a unique scheme to show their separation from the Dynasty). Your army here has been a large influence on my decision to move to Contrast with how good those colours look over silver and how many dang models you crank out whenever you get a chance. I'm over here painting one model in a month going "good job, man" biggrin.png sweat.gif

Somehow missed the responses here, sorry guys.  If you try out metallic Contrasts, I recommend not using Leadbelcher as a base - it's so dark not much shows through.  Although some colors are very different so maybe it'd work?  I don't know, I guess test it out on an unimportant miniature

Szeras turned out a lot better than I expected. Need to take a better pic, I was playing around with settings on the camera and light box too much and camera battery died

also I didn't use the energy beam bit because I couldn't decide what color to make it

The depiction of Szeras draining blood from his prey, is well done. I commend your modeling and painting skills.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Good job on the Cryptek.

The Tomb Sentinel is well-modeled, but why is only its body's front half coated in metallic paint? To show how wear-and-tear from tunneling, eroded the gray-white paint (seen on the rear half) that once covered the Tomb Sentinel's entire body?

It actually is silver, just glare from the light box
I'm not sure yet the best way to take pictures with it, less light makes the purple look black but more light makes the metallic look white

I have been playing with my light box and camera settings, trying to get better pictures. I think I'm on the right track. It's still hard to get no shadows without having too much light/reflection. Might need more background light or something. But here are the HQs from Indomitus :

Khulu Koth-ukala, the Star-Blessed, Lord of the Inescapable Maze, the Slayer of the Unknown God. Khulu was originally a Lord serving under Phaeron Eternokh, but has always been an ardent supporter who has gone out of his way to execute Eternokh's will. As such he has been consistently rewarded with promotions to the point where many other Lords and Overlords despise him. However, none dare to openly oppose him because he is fond of putting his Glaive to good use.

Aorekh Ghatanoth, Herald of the Maze

Atahr Basatan, the Darkness in the Deep, Dream-Haunter. Formerly an Overlord of the Moaglith Dynasty, he awoke with an insatiable itch. He destroyed his own body over and over trying to scratch his itch, and soon turned on his subordinates. He realized too late that only tearing apart the living could soothe his senses. The Vosogoth Dynasty offered him a new body and chances to scratch that itch in exchange for loyalty.

Great work here Tyriks!,
I love the “Necron” themed shelf you have ;-) and are you a dice lover like me?..I counted 6 different dice blocks up there on top !!
The new models look great in your dynasties colours !!
Cheers, Mithril

I do like having a set of dice for each army and I change my paint schemes constantly when I start new projects so I always wind up with extra dice. I like having variety available though and most games we play are here so it always helps to have more!

I, for some reason, decided to redo the bases for my entire Necron army. I kept having chunks of the Martian stuff break off and I got tired of trying to fix it all the time. I had found some Vallejo diorama texture paint that was much easier to put on and was much hardier so I'm doing that. I like the look of the new stuff a LOT more. I'll get pictures up when I get the chance but my hobby space is kind of a mess from dragging everything down to my garage every week for games

not gonna be the best pics but I'm getting minor surgery tomorrow so I probably won't be very able/willing to post for a few days, I will take better pics afterwards

I'm also hitting all blades with this brighter purple metallic to make them pop a little more. so far it's just blades but I might pick out guns a little too

the bases are Vallejo black lava with a drybrush of grey seer over it. goes on super quick and easy, it's the first basing material I don't really hate to work with and it was like half a pound of it for like $2 (US) more than GW texture paints so much cheaper

That black lava stuff really does look good, still a scoop/spread product? Something I absolutely hate about GWs stuff is that it uses microscopic plastic bits that are insanely bad for the environment should they end up in the water system. Honestly anything else would be better.

What purple is that you're using on the blades? I'm really digging how much more they stand out now.

 

EDIT: Rewind, minor surgery? Hope everything's good and recovery is swift pal.

They look great. The color combo really pops. Good luck with the surgery and i wish you a speedy recovery.

I have come to kick ass and chew bubble gum! And I'm fresh outta bubble gum.

I like the way they pop.

I can't tell if this has microbeads. It has something in it for texture but it feels grittier than microbeads so it might just be sand. I can't find confirmation either way, though. But there's no crackle medium and the material is less sticky overall (if that makes sense) so it goes on a lot easier with the spatula thing GW makes. I felt like with GW texture paints it always sticks to itself or the "brush" and won't spread very easily but this is more like Elmer's glue in consistency, so it spreads great.

Surgery was just to correct my vision, so aside from struggling to focus on small details (like painting miniatures or reading, unfortunately) I'm essentially done recovering already. Thanks for the well wishes!

The purple is from turbo dorks, I'll have to look up the name real quick

Glad to hear it was a fast success of an operation, hopefully you're back to non-squinting status soon! :tu:

What's the GW spatula made of? Weird that it sticks. Either way awesome the new stuff goes on easier, I'm going to have to look more at Vallejo's textured stuff.

Turbo Dorks is an amazing name, I only just saw a local shop ask in a group about interest in the line since it's apparently very hard to get in Canada. Those are some vibrant colours!

So, I've been thinking, and I feel like I might need/want to tweak my Dynasty's backstory since the Silent King is back. A brief recap (I'm honestly not sure how much of this I've actually posted here so this might not be a recap at all) was: my Phaeron had a minor connection to the Silent King and viewed his departure as an abdication, and proclaimed himself the next Silent King through some technicality. He's also paranoid about being hunted by the C'tan that he fought in the uprising, which he now doesn't know if it is alive or dead, free or chained. So he was going to be obsessed with upgrading his body with C'tan shards or other tech to make himself capable of surviving a fight with the C'tan.

So, my first inclination was to convert Szarekh's model to be my Phaeron. But I have him mostly built now and I don't think any changes I make will look nearly as good as the real deal. Plus, I really want to play Crusade and I want it to be My Dude leading the Crusade, and that just won't work with the Silent King.

So, I'm torn between keeping my backstory and just painting Szarekh in my colors, or making minor modifications (I was planning on leaving the two Phaerons off to use as Overlords and just put two Lychguard or Praetorians beside him), or saying it is Szarekh but wrong colors for no reason and go with my original plan of converting my Phaeron out of a character and some Triarch Stalker legs to look like some experiment gone wrong and running it as a CCB (which could then lead my Crusade). Or I could just shift focus away from my Phaeron and make a Nemesor to be My Dude.

My indecision here has somewhat stalled my hobby progress as I want to get the Silent King finished but I just don't know how to progress. What would you guys do?

I would finish my cool, big bad phaeron model to run as my crusade HQ and in any thematic games I needed him for.

Then I’d paint up a converted or alternate paint scheme Silent King to run in my competitive or other thematic games that I wanted to rock the awesome new model.

Best of both worlds lol.
