Hi All!

I had a thread on Warseer a long time ago about my original Necron Army. I'm at it again a couple years later and would like to share some of what I'm building.

My goal is to have a unique force, a one of a kind that can get people's attention. The core of that will be done by my vehicle conversions even though I do some minor modifications to my infantry and characters as well.

The backstory of my Dynasty is that one necron Lord, Harut, was tasked with staying awake during the long sleep. He was a master of canoptek engineering and he made modifications to the war protocol of the Dakhma.

Unknow to all, however, madness has overcome Harut as he has fallen slave to another entity. He changed and tampered with the reawakening protocols of his Nemesor and Lords and Harut and his mysterious master have basically seized control of the Dynasty.

With no further delays, lets start with something Juicy.

Dakhma Tomb Blades

Reworked by the Canoptek Lord Harut, the eternal watcher, these Tomb Blades rely more on the skills of the rider than on the computational algorithims of the bike.





You can find Work in Progress pictures at my blog, under the Tomb Blades tag, here.

Also, a few of my characters so far:


Nemesor Mahvan'erel, deathbringer of Dakhma






Harut, the eternal watcher, canoptek lord of Dakhma




Autharok, Dakhma warmaster








Automatically Appended Next Post:

Cryptek Havit’yun, harbringer of eternity, master artificer of Dakhma





Voch’ats’um, harbringer of destruction




Dakhma Warriors
I always try to change the pose of every third or so model so I can break the monotony of the units. The reason behind this is that the Dakhma dynasty has been better maintaned during the great sleep, given that their canoptek Lord was kept awake during it and could tend himself to the stasis protocols. This means that even their warriors have more advanced will and endurance during a fight, though at a risky cost to the entire Dynasty and perhaps, the galaxy itself...














Here are the first few units together for a group shot.






Automatically Appended Next Post:
Dakhma Immortals
I have magnetized my Immortals weapons. I have 10 assembled and painted so far, but only have pictures of the first 5 of the unit with their Tesla Carbines.









Tak'ard the deathmark
Just as Harut improved every warmachine in the Dakhma arsenal, also did he better equip his assassins. Each Dakhma Deathmark is an independant threat, capable of bringing the power of an entire squad with their enhanced kraken morphology. They connect to a series of Sniper drones that enhance the capabilities of the assassin.

In the works:

Reclamation oculus
Instead of deploying Ghost Arks that are capable of repairing necron warriors mid-field, Harut discovered it was much more efficient to phase damaged units back to the closest tombworld for repairs while, at the same time, maintaining an open portal between these endless vault-crypts and the battlefield.



These hovering portals bring forth an endless stream of deadly Necron infantry, pouring forth Gauss flayer fire in a constant barrage of death.


Scarab Swarms:
I really wanted mine to be actual swarms!




Canoptek Tentilla

The Dakhma Dynasty deploys these instead of monoliths, a single colossal squid-like warmachine that drops from orbit and burrows inside of the earth itself.

Canoptek Tentilla: Doomsday Cannon counts as Doomsday Ark
One of the tentilla appendages ends up in massive doomsday cannons. Burrowing and emerging from the ground from angles that make any formation by the enemy easily countered by simple redeploying heavy weapons from a different angle.


Canoptek Tentilla: Tesla Destructor counts as Annihilation Barge



Automatically Appended Next Post:
Dakhma Wraiths
i'm still toying with this idea of making my Wraiths more squid-like to follow with the "tentacled menace" theme of the army.






Overlord Reaper Raiment counts-as Catacomb Command Barge
Harut has also designed these raiments to spec from the influences of the mysterious master of Dakhma. They are meant to be used to harvest their victims, more of a ceremonial garb than a warmachine.





That's all for now, feel free to check some more WiP pictures on my blog: Wargaming Rebel

Those are some excellent conversions. Consider some of your ideas stolen.

Yes Necron conversions!

Love the floating Cryptek and the scarab swarms

I've got a bit of an idea for a Necron Lord that's borne aloft by a swarm of scarabs. How did you make yours?

All conversions. Something I can definitely appreciate. Love those swarm bases too.

Thats a great idea! They are resin casts I did myself, you can check some pictures of the process on my blog here.

It was a simple one-part mould to make. I just glued the buts of scarabs to a long sprue strip and made two pouring spots and some air vents. I simply cut the mould halfway through to release the masters and get the casts. Its not the best technique but the pieces are so simple it does the job just fine.

If thats a bit too much to your taste you can try making Greenstuff press moulds and just get the top pieces of the scarabs done. That's what the guys from this blog did and they where the original inspiration for the technique.

Also I use some special scarabs to break the monotony. I've got these from Puppetswar back in the day, they don't make them anymore as far as I know. They have a new model in place but I honestly like the old one sbetter. Forgeworld also had some very cool Scarab alternatives and I have a shipment of them incoming that I plan to use on special Scarab bases as well, but you can't get them from FW anymore.

Also check out this cool inspiration of an Overlord striding on floating platforms held by scarabs.

Thanks man I've got a squad of Lychguard on the way so I can start mucking about with making a Lord.

I'll definitely try casting them as I'll need loads of them. My vision is sort of like those High Elf Wizards from Fantasy that are borne aloft by magical flames, except with Scarabs!

Will definitely have a look through your blog for a how-to

Fun conversions! I have a hard time leaving models stock, myself . One thought about your OSL, the source needs to be a brighter shade of the color for the effect to work right. FX, the eyes of your necrons are the same color as the glow effect, make the eyes brighter and it will be much more convincing. Keep up the good work!

Hi guys!

Time for a side project of mine! Shifting through my collection I had a bunch of unused Reaper Bones miniatures and I decided to set some apart to start working on a Nurgle Force so I have a second army tu introduce people to the hobby.

What follows are my plans for a Flying Demon Prince of Nurgle! Hope you like it!



The whole idea is that he floats around drippling endless viscera and guts onto anyone unfortunate enough to be under him. He's propelled by a rocket engine and is held afloat by a bulbous noxious gas baloon.


















Hope you like it!

Before leaving for Christmas with my family I had time to finish the painting on my Necron Overlord's Reaper Raiment (counts-as CCB).

I have to say, I'm pretty happy with the results. I still need to apply dullcoat and then hit the gems and spheres with shiny varnish, but it looks pretty bad-ass and has already got a fame for ionflicting major pain to my opponents!

So I have finally had time before travelling to Rio to finish this character.



I still have to come up with a name and backstory for him as well as take proper photos, but I wanted to share his final painting here.

I also managed to lay down some bse colors on the Nurgle Demon Prince I've modelled.



I now need to get some new paint colors to properly advance on him, but I'm happy that the details and personality are coming out even at this early stage.

I just finished three more units for the army, two Rodoks and a spec-ops.

Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoy it.

I'm taking a break from my Necrons to finish my Infinity Morat so I can play that system as well, I only need 7 more Infinity miniatures and I'll come back to my crons!

I've been very busy with work, but I managed to do a few hobby sessions early in the morning and get these two guys finally done.









That marks my first two miniatures of the year!

I've previously posted a Myrmidon hacker I did as a test for my wife. I'm now moving forward with her initial forces.

I'm still struggling with the clear finish of these miniatures. I dislike how the high contrast makes them look cartoony, but it's the technique I know and I want to have them ready to play with her ASAP, so I'll have to live with these results for now.

So I have a tournament coming up in three months time. So much to do!

Here's the list of what I need to finish for it:
5x Warscythe Lychguard
1x Night Scythe
10x Scarab Swarms
6x Wraiths
2x Tomb Spiders
3x Tomb blades

Luckly, I have previously assembled the tomb blades and half the scarabs, but all else must be done from the start.

Só today I spent a good amount of time planning and got a few units assembled.

Here are my Wraiths. I dislike the perching position of the official miniatures. I also think they are a tad too big, so I slimmed them down a bit and made them more like a scorpion. My thought is that they impale their victims with the tail and dismember them with their claws.





My first five lychguard. I thought about magnetized weapons, but I lack the time and correct magnets for the job.




Finally, I started assembling my version of the tomb spider. I love the official model but I'm short on cash, so I'll just use my original kitbashed idea.

The tomb spider prototype is ready. It ends up using lots of different kits and parts, but I'm quite happy with the results.

Its gonna be a pain to paint with all these appendages.

And the Tomb Spider!




Add them to my previous batch of Scarab Swarms and you got a happy little canoptek family!




I also started working on the last of my five Lychguard. This one adds a little dynamism to the bunch as he finishes off a fallen opponent with a Warscythe stab on the chest!

I keep working on my tournament list by adding in some destroyers.

I copied the Heavy Gauss cannon from a Triarch Stalker to make heavy destroyers out of my regular ones. I think the weapon isn't as neat as the sniper-like cannon the original ones have, but I'm short on time and this will do nicely. I'm magnetizing it anyway so I can simply make a better one in the future if I want to.



I've finally finished casting all the rods, chest pieces and tails for a first Praetorian Squad. I'll make a new mold to get staff heads on the left hand for more variation, but I'm happy that I managed to get various poses wih the tails from a single original piece.



I did run into a setback, unfortunately. I checked the local humidity online and it read 70%, but I guess the app did not update properly and I unknowingly primed my first destroyer and the D-lord at something closer to 85% humidity. The result...



I'll be stripping them and starting over. I'm mostly upset about the time it'll take as I wanted to paint them this weekend.

I spent a good part of my Sunday assembling and converting this beast! 


I haven't done all weapon options yet since I'm dead focused on finishing my tournament list! 


I really liked the way it came out. As usual, my vehicles lack a pilot and are all automatons.
