I use leadbelcher spray. I have noticed some problems with the way paints cover it, like when painting abbadon over it the black looks very flat and matte, not as shiny as usual. So for regular necrons its great, for stuff like tomb blades though I don't like it.

That's my intention too, for the masses of troops - leadbelcher spray, for characters and 'special' units black spray!... The time saved on troops(of whom we have lots)
Easily makes up for a bit more time spent on the nicer stuff.

Cheers, Mithril

You could even use the silver spray you used on the SG sword!

Regardless of other factors, I think I am going to skip the yellowy lightning effect on the energy parts since my fine motor skills aren't good enough to consistently get thin enough energy lines. Mine look too think and come off like wrapping paper or something.

My vote is for D. Why? Dunno, but I like it.

I like A and C. I think C is the best as there's more contrast and interest in the body.

B's body is too dark and lacks definition (might look really good with a light highlight of silver though). D's weapon is too red/pink, I like the orange hue better.

I like A and C ...although with C i think i'd keep the Agrax to areas such as knee,shoulder,arm,hip and ankle joints and leave the larger areas a bit cleaner for contrast.

A&C have the best weapons colour thumbsup.gif  But A's is the best coil effect.

 

Cheers, Mithril

 

++EDIT++

i just noticed your comment about the energy effect...NTAW does a good effect on his

Thokt Dynasty http://www.bolterand...-thokt-dynasty/

... perhaps you can just use the same easy technique but with your own colour palette...?

Latest work:
 
Immortals
 
which do you like better?
A. Darker/Dirtier on the left
B. Brighter olive green on the right?
 
Immortals front
Immortals Top
Immortals rear
 
 
Destroyer and Heavy Destroyer comparison
 
Besides the hugh-jazz gun for the Heavy variant (stolen from a Triarch Stalker), I wanted the differences to be a bit obvious.
 
What do you think?
Destroyer And Heavy Destroyer comparison front
Destroyer And Heavy Destroyer comparison Top
Destroyer front blurry
Heavy Destroyer front
 
 
 
...still need to figure out how I want the eyes to look....classic Terminator-style red?
 
Going to base with just plain ol' sand (painting Necrons is supposed to be EASY!)

Well done.

Latest work:

Immortals

which do you like better?
A. Darker/Dirtier on the left
B. Brighter olive green on the right?

Personally, I prefer the one on the right.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' 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.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

I second that. The right is the way to go.

I too prefer the green on the right. What are you using to shade the left one – is it Agrax or Camoshade?

Hard to tell with the yellow cast to the photos. Could you get some with natural light instead?
