Interesting so far. Have you seen the "necron" bases that where released today?

You can't go wrong with Basix or Dragonforge. The Secret Weapon ones look ace as well. Black Cat's bases always look like crap to me.

Strange, but not a Stranger.

I think that the dragon forge ones are my favorite, runner up would be the Secret Weapon ones.

Djinn, I did see the bases, but with the necron heads protruding from the bases they look like it'd be difficult to actually position the model on them.

I had just started to check out with the Baseix ones... until I saw shipping costs! Now I'm back to debating, crap I hate decisions... -_- at least I've got a few days until PayPal funds are available from my ebay auctions haha

Edit: Just bought the Baseix ones, 60x 25mm, 20x 40mm and 3x 60mm (in case I pick up some C'Tan later on...) daaaamn Aussie shipping is horrible

Love the work on the Warriors, but aren't you worried about it getting to be "too much" after doing a few squads of these guys?

Yeah, the paint scheme has/will probably be a bit too intensive for the practicality of mass-painting. I've been leaning more towards a dark kind of slanity gray look for them, but haven't ereally get much done due to work/being more social than usual. I should be able to sit down this weekend (I freaking hope) to maybe get some WIP pics done on more of the stone look.

As a minor update, finally decided upon a paint job, and finally got my first models actually completed, woohoo!

Here's the first two warriors:




Not happy with how the coils on the gauss flayers turned out, but I'll try to get a bright green ink that would work better than the wash I used.

Yes... it's the standard metal 'crons, but I'm doing them in a variation of the Nihilakh paint scheme, using a DE-ish green as opposed to the blue that Nihilakh uses. We'll see how it turns out on larger things, as just the chest icon of these models isn't really enough to get a good bearing on.

I'll be looking up doing glowing effects for the coils, as I plan on trying to implement that into the glasters a little bit and more so on larger vehicles.



I REALLY like how the Back 2 Base-ix bases turned out okay. I think I overdid the devlan mud wash on the mud portions, since it'd probably look better a bit lighter. These first 10 warriors will be completed this same way though, just to keep uniformity.

That's it for now, should have the first squad done by the end of the week!

Necron Warrior Squad 1:

Completed the first unit I've actually managed to paint in I think 6 months, to include basing. Fairly happy about it. Here's the squad:







Let me know what you think!
