Miek, while I'm really impressed by the rest of your Necrons (that teleporting one and the effect you painted is boss, sir!), I don't think the overly humanoid head is "Necron" enough in my eyes. If it works for you though, that's great!
Instead, I would make a more planar equivalent shaped somewhat like a dreidel, with angular cheekbones and cheeks that cut into the face underneath, and an elongated but minimized nose. Standard Necron eyes, and for the hair, perhaps a spiked crown instead, with some of the spikes having fallen onto the face, similar to the inpiration's hairstyle?
It is a cool idea though, and it's always interesting to hear/see where someone drew their inspiration from!
Thanks, I love these guys, can't wait to play them!
I do like the humanoid head because of the inspiration, but I'll take a few days to consider alternatives. Here's the android look I tried before; as mentioned it's too generic IMO and doesn't befit a (custom) named character. Perhaps adding something that acts like hair - as you suggested - would do the trick. I really appreciate the feedback, thanks again.
As a Blame! fan, I commend your kitbashed Sanakan. The manga's silicon beings can be Flayed Ones. Will you also add Knights of Sidonia-inspired Knight or Titan counterparts?
Thank you, I'm really glad you like it! As mentioned above I may or may not stick with this head, but I do want a head closer to Sanakan's than a traditional necron's. I want the model to be primed & ready to paint before January 8 (the 9 is my birthday, and I want to spend the day painting it), so that leaves plenty of time.
In my fluff (see link in my signature), the flayed ones are kind of low-level safeguards; they were greatly corrupted by the megastructure's AI, get teleported by it into battle and act independently from Sanakhan's control. The five ones above's arms and legs are actually from a neat safeguard 3d model I bought a while ago (can't share a link or reference on this forum I'm afraid) but I didn't use the head (see previous pic) because I liked the ones I used better. But a named character deserves more...
I think I'll bundle the destroyer cult along with the flayed ones in the megastructure's corruption. And I'll definitely build something like a knight or titan someday, but it'll probably look more like a silicon life monster than a KoS Garde. But I'm a big fan of Tsutomu... Noise, Biomega, Abara, Digimortal are amongst my favorite (with Blame at the top), and each is a great source of inspiration.
