Hello Bolter and Chainsword!

 

Always wanted to start a 40k army but never got around to it. Then Covid 19 happened and I started up a raven guard army out of sheer boredom. I chose them because Space Marines seemed like a good place to start. Painted up some easy build reivers and intercessors.  

 

Then 9th happened and all of a sudden it looked like my favorite xenos would be actually be playable. That plus the many small nerfs to RG made me switch over to them. I chose the Mephrit purely based on the halloween paint scheme. Then I found a store that still had a Necron Outrider box set and here we are. 

 

Behold! My first Necron model. I'm particularly proud of the base. The crystals are just cut up spruce pieces and the skull is from the ghost ark. Ten was too many anyway.

Also second, a not quite finished wraith.

My style is geared to be quick and dirty. Leadbelcher spray obviously. With the orange spots corax whited then gryph-hound oranged. Khorne red and Averland sunset to touch up the orange. Creed camo for the green and nuln oil gloss over the lead belcher. Balthazar gold for the fancy bits.
Only part i'm not happy about is the cryptek's staff. Doesn't pop enough. 
 
Models for the Royal Awakening. Most of the Outrider Battalion.

Please excuse my terrible photography. It was done on a camera phone. I'll upgrade it when I figure this all out.
... I really hope any of these guys are good in 9th...

Ah sprue crystals. A wonderful addition to any Necron's base! Everything's looking good to my eyes, the staff I thought worked well but maybe you could just flatly do yellow instead of orange for the weaponry? That would make it stand out and you could go right out to white on the edges for a very bright yellow, even keep the orange in the recesses if it suits.

 

As for your collection's relevance in 9th I'm sure they will be fine. None of those units are being replaced in any way by the looks of it since they are all recent enough plastic sculpts.

Are the Necrons from the Rambo Dynasty, favoring dark colors so enemies will not detect them before the warriors strike the first blow?

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.

It is Creed Camo paint I use so kinda lol.

I think necrons have too much eldritch glowing going on to be much good at stealth though.

 

In other news, it finally stopped raining here so i'l have my next vow spray primed any time now. 

Edit: And they're up on royal awakening. Officially starting vow #2.

 

Couldn't help but paint up some scarabs quick

Plus a close up of 1 of my bikers. Will wait to plaint the last three of them. Not sure how good they will be in a two wound marine dominated meta. Anything that takes out marines will remove them just as easy. At least I magnetized the weapons so i'll be able to switch them out according to meta.

Lovingly painted up some of the new Indomitus characters! Redid my original cloaktek's weapon so he is in the picture as well.

 Rise Necron Command!!!! https://www.youtube....ch?v=XUhVoTsBaM

Anyone got any tips on making my weapon's look more... energetic?

Edit: Oh, ya! forgot to mention I added legs to the plasmancer! My first conversion. That floating spine thing just didn't work for me. Floating old man crouch is so much better.

Also finished the Reanimator. A great looking model, I just wish his rules weren't so lackluster.  Hes so great at... absorbing 3-5 autocannon shots... Spent a lot of time on that base.

Warrriors about half done, can't wait to get my silver horde table ready.
