Got the first awakenings of a new dynasty!

He-Guilliman may have the power of Greyshields but the galaxy belongs to the Skeletoran! Nyah!

By performing the Emperor's Will, we will show the Xenos the Emperor's wrath, the Traitor his intolerance, and our brethren what his will actually is!

I thought this might be you initially.

 

Spoiler

I like your scheme more, it's more subtle.

Not me, but it was the picture that inspired me to do it!

A couple more warriors and a “Trapjaw” inspired royal warden. I considered going more extreme on the warden, maybe adding an ork lower jaw, but decided to stay pure necron and just use color palette to suggest the theme.

Though I may add a couple of ‘horns’ to the overlords staff of light.

It's too bad there is no Flayer King to do Beastman with. 

 

Triclops could be done by one of the Crypteks, I think, unless you want to head swap a Destroyer.

 

Evil-lyn should definitely be a Cryptek with a staff.

I just ordered a model that I’ll use as an evil-lyn cryptek.

Almost got a 25PL crusade force (8 more warriors to go - all part painted!)

Playing around with a transcendent c’tan... trying to go heavy on the lightning (I see a lot of warp lightning contrast and moot green in this guy’s future)

That's a pretty cool alternative for a ctan!

Yeah I like the C’tan a lot. I’m planning to get those endless spells myself actually, to add lightning to stuff.

C+C always welcome on my Titanic Plog. Should really be painting Crimson Fists.

A bit more chopping and some paint on the c’tan... still not sure if I’m happy with the pose or if I should get a different figure (necron warrior?) to be between the stones?

I think maybe a different figure could work better. That skeleton just seems kind of small. It could look like just some victim of whatever is happening there, rather than the protagonist.

I’d consider looking at the night haunt range. Something like the banshee women or the mortarch of grief, maybe. Or else maybe something non-corporeal like a big floating skull on its own.

Why even have the skeleton? Two weird crystals floating about would also work as the physical manifestation of a star god?

Ha ha - it could, but the. I’d feel like I was just proxying instead of having a conversion!

Ah man, now I’m thinking about the giant skull and whether I could paint it yellow to go with the dynasty vibe.

If I end up ripping the head off a toy Skelator and sticking it on here, it’s down to you!

Still trying to figure out the c’tan - have a couple of ideas.

Got the first 25PL force ready!

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

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.
