Hey all,

I am starting up a Necorn army to get me into having a few more games..

I want to do a progress log to show people what I am doing and to also look for tips and help motivate me to paint more.

I've started off with a Catacomb Command Barge. I am painting just to get an army on the table but with HQ units I wanted to spend a bit of time really pimping them out so people would really notice the main threats.

I'm going with a digital-matrix themed army. I wanted it to look very code-esque and also quite venomous. Green is usually a toxic looking color which suggests "threat" so this is what I am going with. My actual troops will be silver as per normal Necron color scheme but I am going to accent them with green and the odd royal red.

Enjoy. Will update as a go.

(Yes I noticed the mold lines.. ouch.. big rookie mistake!)

These are just a random selection of parts I have just finished the basecoats on. Many details to come.


The flying unit on it's base. Coming together nicely. Only some detailing done like the main front part. Next is to detail entire model with washing/highlights and picking out all the fine cast.


This frontward view really resembled a scorpion. I like it a lot. It's very threatening.

Looks like a nice color scheme with the subtle blending of color down. Only thought how are you planning to do the warriors and soforth blend from the arms? Or front to back as with this?

I've chosen to do all my troops in a traditional silver, but only vehicles in this strong green color. The troops may has a hint of red here and there for the royal Overlords.

A minor update. Getting more detailing done on my Command Barge tonight. Really loving this model. So sweet!

Check out those greens! So much pop!

Do you think I should do some light weathering to break it up a little?
It is a tough question for me, I have the same dilemma with my Eldar (not a problem for Blood Angels though). I would incline to say yes especially on larger models - it is metal after all so some really controlled scratches or tiny bit of rust could add to the model. I would test it first.

This is just my opinion.

Okkkkkkaaayyyy. I've added the mud and I'm not sure if I just screwed this model up. But before commenting, I just want to say that the pose I'll be doing this skimmer in will be a very vicious, aggressive pose. It will be cleaning to one side and swooping low so that the Overlord looks like he's leaning out to slash down on his enemies. I was really aiming for a super aggressive, at all lengths we will hunt you down and kill you even if that means hitting the ground and skimming from time to time. Hahaha. This is my first time using typhus corrison and man it's a great technical paint. It's given it a really rough, muddy texture that stuff is amazing.. It's growing on me, the look. I'll keep going and see where I end up.

I wasn't really after the super clean xeno grace look and feel. I wanted these beat up old tomb skeletons to look like they go to any length to destroy and kill their enemies. They are cyborgs not fairies.
