I'm starting a new necron army. It's based on 3x the necron half of Indomitus and the stuff out of the old Forgebane box (which I bought for the Armigers, years ago).
I'm imagining a horde army, which is something I've never done before. The core will be 60+ warriors and I'll back them up with various other fun stuff. I'm planning a few conversions for characters like a CCB, assorted Crypteks and Nightbringer. However, the core of the army will be shambling hordes of warriors built straight out of the box and painted largely using contrast paints and drybrushing.
Here's my test necron warrior. He's painted in apothecary white over Corax white spray, then a white drybrush. Vallejo steel for the metal and the necron glow colour for the green.
I think I might need to add a spot colour, probably red, to differentiate units. Some fairly simple lines ought to do it I think.
I've also painted a reanimator, as a practice for how I might do bigger models. I added in some Dark Angels green for the blade bits of the legs, which I think works fairly well.
I'm not sure how I'll do the bases yet, or if I'll add much weathering, rust and so on. I'll probably play around with various options.
I'm going to have 12 Skorpekhs, so I wanted to vary their positions a bit. For the 2nd set I swapped bodies and legs, then for the third I chopped up the arms and repositioned them with some careful pinning. I'll do something similar for the 4th set.
Here's my current pile of mostly grey plastic. There's a bit more stuff still on sprues: a unit of wraiths, skorpekhs and Lychguard, two "royal court" sprues from Indomitus and 20 more warriors.
I'm looking forward to doing a lot of conversions for things like Crypteks and other characters. I picked up a Chronomancer and I'm going to kit bash a second one using the spare arms he comes with, and some snaky tendrils from my Wraiths. I think I'll want a technomancer with a control node too, which I'm planning to make as a little canoptek critter that shares his base, possibly based on a plasmacyte. We'll see how that works out!
