Next up is Vargard Obyron. One of the few units in the entire codex that can take a power weapon attack and then fight back like a monster.



More of the same techniques and process used here as with Nemesor Zandrekh. There is a paint slip on the blade but this has since been fixed.



He is a very cool model but not a lot of room to play with. The pose actually really hampers painting as you have to paint around the weapon.



The OSL from red to green was quite a task needing quite a bit of thinking to get right. Vargard Obyron is a lynch-pin to my list with the way that he and Zandrekhs ryules interact.



Next up is the Royal Court!

Hello,

This time we take a look at the warriors. There are 30 in the army but we shall take a look at one to see the painting approach taken.



I laid down the silver and highlights with the airbrush before going back in with the brush to throw around some Sepia wash to weather the metallics.



I also painted up the shoulders and added the unit marking (just red stripes). Next up was the red OSL which is all brush work.



Then it was time for some armour chipping. This was mainly applied to the shoulders as it shows up better on the white than the silver. This was done with a sponge.



Finally I went back in with the airbrush to give the Gauss weapons a green glow. I did this for all 30 Warriors in one batch... pretty sure I won't be so keen to try that again :p

Now for the other half of the troops section with some Immortals.



These guys provide some more reliable shooting and survivability over my Warriors and always pull their weight.



Much of the painting is the same as my Warriors with the OSL done the same (red with brush green with airbrush).



Unfortunately, these pictures have washed out the OSL on the weapon which is some of my favorite OSL in the army.



These guys were nicer to paint than the warriors and OSL on the guns was much better to work on than the rods for the warriors which were a real pain.

Cheers. It started off as Red OSL but when I started playing with a slightly different take on bronze/silver than usual it just made sense to take it as a theme.

Now we get to the creepy space roaches Necron Canoptek Wraiths. One of my favorite units in the army.



This unit more than any other taught me a bunch of lessons in how not to do OSL. Definitely not the best standard in the army but it still looks pretty good.



The large crystals on the bases worked really well with the tails wrapping around them.

Thanks mate they are very cool models!

Now the Necron Army Showcase gets to the vehicles. First up we have the Ghost Ark. This thing can eat a lot of firepower and still get my Warriors where they need to be.

I converted this model by removing the pilot (robots piloting robots makes no sense at all) with a bit of plastic and some parts from the Command Barge I put together a reasonable dais for my Cryptek to use to indicate teh unit is embarked.

The OSL on this thing was a massive slog and I could have done a better job but in the end I wanted to be finished with it.

Need bigger pictures in order to better see the detail. Looks great from what I can see however.

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?

Thanks. If you are after bigger pics you can click through to my blog from the sig its just easier to manage my pics this way.

This time a two for one with both of the Annihilation Barges.



These took quite a bit of work... and if you notice I still haven't highlighted the cabling (need to do that on all the vehicles actually). The actual OSL went pretty well with these guys and this was the point I wished I had just done Green and Blue OSL and missed out the Red but this is something learnt and will not be repeated.

Next up is a Doom Scythe. Hopefully these pics should be bigger but if you want a better look at the older ones they are all on my BLOODYdice. Really need some new pics of this flyer though as the pilot is now painted and I have also found a part to cover up the cockpit which I need to put on and paint.. but for now:
