So after screwing around with these guys for the last week, and not wanting to paint due to the fact that I have been sick and in bed most of the time, these guys are finally done.  I wanted to go with a more subdued color to them, since I have a hard time putting bright colors to anything along the lines of a sniper (damn you military training).  I like the black base, not just because it will stand out from my army and provide a nice contrast, but also because it really makes glow effects off the lights and what not pop out more.  I tried doing a hard highlight with a dark red along the black, but I don't have any brushes that have their tip anymore, so it didn't come out pretty, haha.  I did order a whole new set of brushes though, which was long over due, so that might force me to go back and highlight everything.  Anyways, check below for more pictures as usual.

Necron army so far...

So, here is what I have painted so far.  It totals up to 15 Immortals with Tesla's, 5 Lychguards with Hyperphase Swords and Dispersion fields, a Overlord with Staff of Light and Res Orb, and a Command Barge with Tesla as well.  Once I get my 5 Deathmarks put together, I will have my 500 point list for the league painted up, which will allow me some free time to paint other things.  Check below for a closer picture of the lord...

Fancy Necron shields!!!!!

So I decided that I needed some Lychguards to paint.  The shields just called out to me to play with.  So, after several hours of putting on masking tape, airbrushing, taking off masking tape, and repeating too many times, this is how they came out.  I am happy.  A kind of happy that could only be equalled by a leaked PDF of 6th edition magically appearing on the Internet.  Oh, what's that you say?  One did appear?  YAY MAGIC! (though not the card game....grrrrr, magic the gathering)  Anyways, check below for more pictures of individual dudesmen!

First squad done (I think...)

So here is the first squad of Immortals.  In fact, I was thinking this morning that this is actually the first whole squad I have painted in a VERY long time.  I usually paint up my big models and special characters, and then look at my squads and get frustrated just thinking about all the repetition that will be involved.  Not this time though! 

So yeah, I am actually enjoying painting these Necrons, so I have been thinking about playing Necrons in my escalation league that starts in 3 weeks.  It hasn't started yet so switching armies is still cool.  We'll see though. 

Next up is some HQ's for the army!  I have several built in various stages and primed, so now I need to figure out what I intend to do.  For the scaled cloaks, I want to do something cool, but I am unsure as to what.  So I might spend some time this morning using the Googles to see what's out there.

Anyways, I'll post more pictures as I take them, but seeing as 3 of the 5 light bulbs from my light are dead, I need to get more before I can take better pictures.  Yay me.  I hate spending money these days on anything but models, but it's all I ever seem to do >.<  Damn you real life issues!

Sad to sell this army, amazing deal though for you!

So I hate to have to post this, but some things have gone crazy in my life and I am in a pinch for money.  So that means that the army I won from Heroes of Armageddon is up for sale!  I sold my Menoth and Tyranid armies today as well, and if this thing sells I'll be good I think.  But my loss is your gain here.  The auction can be found at:


The starting bid is about $800 below what the costs of everything is, even before the paint jobs, so that is a steal.  The buy it now price is about exactly what the costs of everything included is, again, without the paint jobs.  So basically it's a great looking, mostly painted Ork horde army at cost!  Saves you all the time of painting all of those Boyz.

Anyways, I'm off to watch a movie with my son, so happy bidding and let everyone know about this auction so I can sell it!

Another Necron test model!!!!

So here is the test model I knock out this morning for my Immortals.  This will be the general theme for all my infantry, with different variations for the different types of course.  I need to figure out squad markings still, as well as clean up the silver after my lazy ass washes it, haha.  All said and done though, it's a fairly easy paint job that I won't lose my mind repeating several hundred times (okay, not that many, but still, quite a few times).  Anyways, here is the other four from the box, built in two pieces to paint it easier, since I did air brush both sides of the gun.

Inquisitors and Thousand Sons???

So as the post says, I now have two Inquisitors in my force.  With the league I will be playing in, the first games are 500 points and you cannot have named characters or anything with a 2+ save until the points rise to 1000 points.  That means my absolute only choice was one of the generic Inquisitor types.  So, instead of buying two of the ugly GW ones, or waiting a long while for two of the AWESOME forge world ones, I build two from bits I had laying around.  They look very different from the rest of the force (as they should), and the big problem then presented itself on how to paint them, or even how to justify them in my Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons army...FML.  More below the break!
