Hi folks,

 

I'm taking part in a fairly informal Tale of X Gamers with a few of my gaming mates as a way to cut down our backlogs while we're in lockdown.

 

The end game is to have a 1500pt army by the end of December. We haven't established a rigorous system of "Paint X in month 1" as we're all at different stages of life with different amounts of free time etc. That said, we're all aiming to get a Kill Team for our respective force done first.

 

As you may have already guessed, I'm doing Necrons. It's not an army I've ever collected before, but I bought a friend out of the hobby a few years back and it included a large force of Necrons. I sold off a lot of the models to recoup my costs, but I still have a reasonable amount of unpainted models.

 

I'm currently aiming for a 500 point list consisting of two squads of Necron Warriors, some Scarabs, a squad of Tomb Blades and a Lord to lead them. I have a habit of starting projects and not finishing them, so the current plan is to paint this all up first before getting any more models.

 

This is the Lord I've converted to lead my 500 point list.

Here you can see a painted an unpainted Necron Warrior. For the scheme, I wanted to keep it dark and broody with lots of dark metallics broken up by glowing Gauss weaponry. The aim here was to create a scheme which looks decent on the tabletop and is quick and easy to replicate, so I actually stick with it.

My current thinking is that I'll get all of my warriors up to the same level as the painted warrior (primed and washed, with the details picked out) and will go back to add some highlights and smooth out the transitions on the Gauss weapons.

 

On the left we have a sneaky git perfectly ordinary Necron, who will be used to represent a specialist in Kill Team.

 

C&C Welcome.

Sneaky git would be a hot contender for the Alpha Legion -Sedition in Style- award.
Of course, there is no Alpha Legion. So, run along! ;)

That Lord is an excellent place to start a Legion, great character to the pose. With an army of a very similar look I can attest that a simple silver/black with electric blue weaponry looks good on the tabletop and is pretty easy to bang out when the time for painting comes around. 

 

I look forward to seeing more painted!

Wow, the sneaky git is a great idea. Such a cool idea, good job and great imagination.

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

I like the way they pop.

Thanks for the kind words folks.

The new Necrons have ironically knocked the wind out of my sails for this project. The removal of the green rods and the redesigned Gauss weapons means my current warriors will stick out like a sore thumb. I might try to replicate the new Gauss weapons with some bits from the Immortals kit, but I haven’t worked up the motivation yet.

Likewise with painting up the scarab bases which will presumably be replaced by the new style.

I have over 90 warriors and scarab to match. I won't be getting new ones.
