Arhurt's conversion corner: Necrons, Chaos and the occasional Infinity model...
I had a thread on Warseer a long time ago about my original Necron Army. I'm at it again a couple years later and would like to share some of what I'm building.
My goal is to have a unique force, a one of a kind that can get people's attention. The core of that will be done by my vehicle conversions even though I do some minor modifications to my infantry and characters as well.
The backstory of my Dynasty is that one necron Lord, Harut, was tasked with staying awake during the long sleep. He was a master of canoptek engineering and he made modifications to the war protocol of the Dakhma.
Unknow to all, however, madness has overcome Harut as he has fallen slave to another entity. He changed and tampered with the reawakening protocols of his Nemesor and Lords and Harut and his mysterious master have basically seized control of the Dynasty.
With no further delays, lets start with something Juicy.
Dakhma Tomb Blades
Reworked by the Canoptek Lord Harut, the eternal watcher, these Tomb Blades rely more on the skills of the rider than on the computational algorithims of the bike.
You can find Work in Progress pictures at my blog, under the Tomb Blades tag, here.
Also, a few of my characters so far:
Nemesor Mahvan'erel, deathbringer of Dakhma
Harut, the eternal watcher, canoptek lord of Dakhma
Autharok, Dakhma warmaster
Cryptek Havit’yun, harbringer of eternity, master artificer of Dakhma
Voch’ats’um, harbringer of destruction
I always try to change the pose of every third or so model so I can break the monotony of the units. The reason behind this is that the Dakhma dynasty has been better maintaned during the great sleep, given that their canoptek Lord was kept awake during it and could tend himself to the stasis protocols. This means that even their warriors have more advanced will and endurance during a fight, though at a risky cost to the entire Dynasty and perhaps, the galaxy itself...
Here are the first few units together for a group shot.
I have magnetized my Immortals weapons. I have 10 assembled and painted so far, but only have pictures of the first 5 of the unit with their Tesla Carbines.
Tak'ard the deathmark
Just as Harut improved every warmachine in the Dakhma arsenal, also did he better equip his assassins. Each Dakhma Deathmark is an independant threat, capable of bringing the power of an entire squad with their enhanced kraken morphology. They connect to a series of Sniper drones that enhance the capabilities of the assassin.
In the works:
Instead of deploying Ghost Arks that are capable of repairing necron warriors mid-field, Harut discovered it was much more efficient to phase damaged units back to the closest tombworld for repairs while, at the same time, maintaining an open portal between these endless vault-crypts and the battlefield.
These hovering portals bring forth an endless stream of deadly Necron infantry, pouring forth Gauss flayer fire in a constant barrage of death.
I really wanted mine to be actual swarms!
The Dakhma Dynasty deploys these instead of monoliths, a single colossal squid-like warmachine that drops from orbit and burrows inside of the earth itself.
Canoptek Tentilla: Doomsday Cannon counts as Doomsday Ark
One of the tentilla appendages ends up in massive doomsday cannons. Burrowing and emerging from the ground from angles that make any formation by the enemy easily countered by simple redeploying heavy weapons from a different angle.
Canoptek Tentilla: Tesla Destructor counts as Annihilation Barge
i'm still toying with this idea of making my Wraiths more squid-like to follow with the "tentacled menace" theme of the army.
Overlord Reaper Raiment counts-as Catacomb Command Barge
Harut has also designed these raiments to spec from the influences of the mysterious master of Dakhma. They are meant to be used to harvest their victims, more of a ceremonial garb than a warmachine.
That's all for now, feel free to check some more WiP pictures on my blog: Wargaming Rebel
Gonna be honest, when I seen the first pic (tomb blades) I wasn't expecting much. The OSL is so over bearing that I didn't like it. But you surprised me. The rest of the stuff you did was well done!
I'm glad you like the overall result. I may go back at some point and retouch those, but my top priority is to get the pile of unassembled and unpainted units cleared up first.

Love your deathmark ideas, those drones look great!
Of course you can just use the drones as a unit as well, but I liked the concept of a single deathmark character.

Some nice conversions in there, especially with the warriors. They're simple but break up the monotony of the horde.
