A scythe would be a good edition for its nasty cannon or as a transport for the immortals

Well I've got the models for a legal and playable army, just not painted haha

I've got 8 Destructeks and 4 Spyders on my desk right now, probably hitting at least one Spyder first.

There are 3 anni barges, 3 ghost arks, and 2 CCBs that are being painted as we speak by someone else (simply because I detest painting vehicles) haha.

As far as the Scythes, I'm definitely going to get some, though probably not until I get back from Afghanistan, I'll be keeping things rather small while I'm gone (in the hopes that I'll be in a place where I can actually paint/play), so footslogging 9-spyder list for me

Glad you all like it thus far though!

Spyder #1 complete!

This one is equipped with the Gloom Prism. I'll be adding magnets to some of my others later so that they'll be able to switch the TL particle beamer in and out, but this one is fairly standard and since I'll have 9, my wargear options are at least fairly loose.

Hope you enjoy!

More productivity today!

I had finished up converting (using Iron Angel's guide found here) 8x destruction crypteks on Saturday night (6x standard, 2x with Solar Pulse). Primed them up prior to Sunday, then after finishing up the Spyder seen above started cranking these bad boys out.

Happy to say, I'm at about an 80% solution on 7 of 8, and finished the 8th (with Solar Pulse).

Here are the remaining Crypteks:


For the most part, I just need to get the layers up to Sybarite Green on the weapons, heads, and tabard-things then do some grey highlights on their lance handles.

And my first completed cryptek:



I tried doing a "dark white" detailing on the head and upper haft of the weapon (the part taken from the synaptic disintigrator from the Deathmark weapon) but I think the openings are too narrow to really get it across well. As far as the solar pulse, I wanted the orb to be black (since it's removing sunlight) but thought it needed some shine. For this, I worked up from black through a couple of grays to a white dot, then washed with Nuln Oil. I think it turned out too dark, so I may be reworking it in the future.

As is customary when I'm painting while on duty, I'm limited to my phone's camera so the pictures kind of blow. Once I finish the lot tomorrow (i.e. later today... crap it's 3 am!) I'll post up higher quality photos of these guys and the spyder.

Well... finally finished the damn Harbingers of Destruction! I've got 8 of them completed, since the most I figure I'll need at one time is 8x if I've got 4x Ghost Arks running around in Apocalypse sized games... though this was decided upon pre-6th Edition so we'll see if I'm still as mech heavy once I get a few games in under the new rules.

Here they are:



I also spent several hours yesterday finishing up my first Lychguard as well as getting started on Zandrekh (because I love the model and have yet to paint a single Necron HQ and figured it was about time to...)



Ideally I'll have Zandrekh completed in a day or two, and I'll get photos posted of him soon!

I like the way you paint them, similar to the Novokh Dynasty but using bronze and green instead of red... Brilliant Models.

Some nice work in here BoC, diggin it. I do however have a suggestion regarding the metallic areas which is my main area of focus for painting models as you know. The steel areas are fine but the bronze spots need a bit... more to make it really pop. I would suggest you add a further layer of highlight colour on both the very edges and a bit wider where the light source would most hit the model followed by a thin wash or two of Devlan Mud. This will keep the same look you have now but will really make the bronze areas stand out and not quite look so flat next to the rest of the paint.

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?

I'll try that out Wraithlord, since the models I've got in the initial WIP stages are Oberon, Anrakyr, a DLord and the Lychguard I'll have plenty of opportunities haha.

The way I've been doing the bronze is pretty much straight off the bronze painting guide from GW (because color coordination is a weakness...) :

Screaming Bell base -> Reikland Flesh wash -> Hashut Copper -> Sycorax Bronze

I haven't been adding a wash after the fact at all, which is probably contributing to the bronze portion not really sticking out, and I've got a tendency to get impatient and therefore sloppy when doing the highlights. I'll take my time with the next couple, I think I can make it work with the colours I'm using, or do you think having the fine headlight being in a bright silver would work best?

You need the bronze to be really really bright for silver to be used as a highlight, more like a bright gold even. Try this: paint on your basecoat, then a first highlight stage that covers all but a few small areas, then your first wash, then highlight on the edges at most with the colour you used the first time. If that looks a bit too bright on the highlights then add another, thin, wash layer. It sounds more complicated than it is but the result is really easy to get and helps to blend the colours in better.

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?
