Default Necron Overlord with link to painting tutorial

Work on my Necron army is progressing nicely. I really enjoyed painting this Necron Lord and practicing some more advanced techniques. I documented a comprehensive painting guide to go with it over on tale of painters. Check it out if you're interested.

Top notch as always Gareth. Really diggin the galaxy on the orb in particular.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Excellent work.

However, the hard highlights on the red look out of place compared to the more realistic metal.

I disagree. I think the colour helps break up the metallic areas and shows a uniformity between units.

Your criticism could be constructive if you offered an alternative solution for me to consider. As it stands what you've said isn't very useful to me. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts, if you have any.

My apologies; I expressed my opinion without adding suggestions.

The concept of a single colour to unify the army and stop it being soley metallic is good; it is only the hard highlight I find off.

I suggest either replacing the final highlight with one closer to the base red or glazing the area to draw the extremes together.
