These are my first Nec gang. I painted these guys as part of my quest to finish off my collection of grey minis before buying any more. I was inspired by the unknown warriors pdf which can be found here if you're interested. I followed the colour scheme which I used for my imperial priest. I'd also run these guys as Orlocks. Anyway, pics.

Gangers:
2nd in command - I'll fix his name




Heavies - Just noticed a mould line! D'oh!


Juves



And miscellaneous



I'm not sure on the inscriptions on the book and seals myself. I might just do them again. Overall I'm rather pleased with them. What do you guys think?

Hey. Your pics are a bit dark but from what i can see they are nicely painted. For the inscriptions i use brown as i don't think it looks as bold if you know what i mean. you have done a good job on them. The only thing i would suggest is maybe giving the troops uniforms a wash of brown ink maybe just to add a bit of depth.

Brown text is a really good idea! I'll definitely give that a go. As for a wash, I gave two a wash of ogryn flesh (used for the eviscerator chappy and plasma ptl) but they looked way too dark. I know what you mean about giving the cloth more depth though. I'll have a bit of a ponder and see what I can sort out. Cheers for the advice. :victory:

No problem :). For the wash, water it down and try to only apply it to the recesses rather than the whole area. Alternatively for future reference you can do what i do and wash the model after you paint the main colour on then add more layers of paint working up to the highlight like this:

Cheers guys.

@ LTP I think I'll wash the indentations of the fatigues. I really like the metals and lasgun on your model.

@ Wulox I know what you mean about them looking clean. Fluffwise they are off-worlders working for the Inquisition. I'll give 'em a wash and hopefully they'll look better. I still want them looking clean but have to give them more definition.

Temeria's seem a bit off but that’s my only issue. Nice work. Finigan is awesome BTW.
