Welcome back to the world, mate, glad to see some updates! Though I think the camera is going to cause me to have seizures haha, models still look fantastic though. I am, as always, in awe of how smooth your metallics are.

I don't even care that they are willing to fix their messes, that part is absolutely mandatory given how inconsistent the finecast seems to be. It's hard to justify such expensive models when they are so prone to having crooked pieces and air bubbles destroying pieces of detail. In short, I sympathize.

Your necrons look amazing dude!! I'm starting painting my Thokt Dynasty soon. With your metals, do you straight up use different pots of colour or do you blend a gold or silver you like with other colours for your highlighting?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

That you gents, glad to be back as much as possible. BoC, I will try and take some better pics next time lol.

ntaw: I do a mix of both actually. I mix and paint my metals like any other paint, do highlights as well and such, but I also mix in various washes while I do it. It actually ends up going in reverse for me in that I paint my brightest colours first and then end up darkening down with washes as I go. I also have no problems with mixing different pots of wash colours at different stages. My painting generally tends to be very much 'by feel' instead of a specific progression.

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?

Sorry no pics this time around but I have finally gotten some free time and done some more work. I now have 20 Immortals that are full painted with the exceptions of their bases (always last thing I do across the entire army) and the guns. It took me awhile to find a colour I like but I have decided to go with what is basically the standard dark green, almost black colour that the GW Necrons are painted in. It works out well as an offset to the metallics of the main body and will also work just fine with the green OSL I will be doing on them. Gonna paint up a few more to finish to see if I truly like it enough for the entire army.

So while I was taking a pic of the BSB I am working on in the WoC log I thought I would post up a quick pic of the Necron lords I have on the go. In both pics the dude on the left is the first one I finished so you can see the progress on the other one in comparison. Also, the Overlord has a slightly more elaborate paint scheme as well.

Wow, not a single response this whole time. Oh well, maybe this update will see some opinions given . Here are three pics showing off the latest stage of painting for me. The first is an Immortal from the squad that was mostly finished and posted here before. As some of you will remember I was having a very hard time deciding how to paint the weapon. I decided to go with the same green that I am putting on the vehicles and I think it works quite well but I would like other opinions on it as well.



Here are the Barge and the Doomscythe in their current state. Green areas are done for the most part, now the bronze and steel are going on. I have to say that I really like the colour combo of the green with the bronze and am definitely going with that for the rest of the army.

Welcome back and nice updates!

I am really liking the metallic look, its subtle so it looks warn out but still pops.

I too am not a big fan of the Finecast. Its simply just not durable and especially on small pieces such as staffs. It frustrates me more thinking about how much they charge for such crappy bits.

Hopefully you were able to fix your models properly and get it all sorted! Looking forward to your next update.
