Wow....just...wow.

LOVE the design. makes me want to respray my entire nexron army.

I like how you used the Tesla Annihilator for the H.Destroyers. I was thinking of getting a couple of heavy gauss cannons (off the Stalker kit) from a bitz site and going the same route. Are they about the same size do you know?

@Razieltemplar - Black with an orange glow would look very good as well. Be sure to add 1-2 other colors to add some additional contrast and to break up the scheme.

@ Dr. Temujin - I have to agree with you, that one does look pretty archaic next to the Necron line. I wanted a unit that would stand out in my army and this unit does that well.

@ Rabid Ferret & Flachzange- Than you!

@ Praxiss - The H. Gauss from the stalker kit is pretty large. It's shorter, but thicker then the Tesla A. I got from the barge kit. I thought it would make the unit look a little off balanced so I didn't use it.

Thanks for the insight, i thought it might be too bulky but i was hoping....

i have seen a pic in the gallery of a conversion someone did with chopping the end off the gauss cannon and repacig it withthe barrel froma Deathmark - looks alright and i already have the bits so think i will try that.


EDIT-
Found the gallery image...

@Praxiss: hmmm.... that could be a really cheap yet effective way for getting a Heavy Gauss Cannon. Looks much better than going for the Resin version, or trying to find one on eBay for a somewhat reasonable price.

I dunno, heavy destroyers ca be netted on eBay for a price similar to normal destroyers. In fact, I recently scored 3 of them for $22 a piece. The old metal ones and everything.

Also, everything looks amazing. I think I'll have to paint up some models in this scheme. I primarily play with my Sautekh models, but you know how Imotekh likes to requisition resources from other dynasties.

Yeah, H. Destroyers are not very popular right now so you can get them on the cheap online if you dig a little. I just made these for S & G's.

I've been hammering away on my display tray. I had it finished last week, but I changed my list so it had to be redone. I'm kind of glad as the original one was pretty boring. This new one is not that much of an upgrade, but it is a big improvement. It should be done today, but I wont have pics for it till Sat or so as this afternoon is going to be pretty hectic.

Love the troncrons man. Exalted. I agree with your assessment on whip coils though they are quite fragile. do you still have the tiny wires bit that goes on the bottom of the spiders model? you could likely replace either a abdomen bulb or a small leg on a wraith model and use it as whip coil. i would allow it as WYSIWYG personally. just a thought as i LOVE the new wraith model and would love to see one painted in your scheme


Automatically Appended Next Post:
just had a thought... you could use that same bit i just mentioned and model it to the end of the wraith tail like the classic metal wraith.

i dont think anyone would argue that the tail with those on the end would not count as whip coil

Hmmm, that wire bit from the spider sprue would work well. I'll give it a try. It will have to wait till after NOVA though.

My display is done. Thank god for that!



Here’s a group shot of the right side of my army display. It took me forever to get one good pic at this distance. I really need to get better with my camera…

Just 3 models left till I’m done:
2 Wraiths
1 Night Scythe

I can knock those out in 5 days...

Absolutely love this color scheme bud, great execution! What kind of material did you make your Necron-y crystals from? That's one of the next things on my to do list for my tomb world board, and I figured I'd make them from the vast amount of Styrofoam I have laying around, but I thought I'd ask. But like I said, everything looks great man!

@NakedSeamus - I used the green crystals from Gale Force 9. They come in 2 other colors (red & blue) and are likely just what you are looking for.

I'm waiting till I get the last 3 minis done before I show the whole display.

Well, I’ve finished all I intend to bring to NOVA, and with 2 days to spare!





I finished my second Night Scythe last night. I was a little surprised at how quick I was able to hammer this kit out. It inspires me to field some more, though I can’t say that about the Ghost Ark… That kit is pure madness!





While on the topic of vehicles, I forgot to post this last week. I finished another Annihilation Barge while I was working on those last few warriors. Turned out well.





Next up are the last 2 models I needed to finish for NOVA. I’ll be using these beauties to represent whip coil wraiths. I may have overdone it a little with the colors on the back of their hoods, but finished is finished.



Here’s a group shot of the whole unit. I now have a proper centerpiece for this army.







Last up are some additional shots of the army on its completed display. I’ve piss poor lighting in my basement so getting a good full shot is nigh impossible. It’s either that, or I have no idea how to use my camera correctly… (My wager is on the latter…)

I would take this over to the GW shop to get some good pics like I did last year for Blob’s Creek, but that shop is depressingly small with worse light then what I have at home. I’ll take them upstairs and see if I can get some good shots there.

Well, that’s it! I’m ready for NOVA and I’m getting pretty damn stoked.

I'm about to head to NOVA for registration. I'll be staying at the Hyatt so I don't have to transport all this stuff. Don't think I'll make it for the 7pm cut off.

@Leohart - I think I could put something together. Give me some time and I'll replicate it small scale.

Well, I'm back from NOVA. I had a BLAST and I have to say, I'm now hooked on competitive gaming. My crons went 5-3 for the weekend.

I'm now trying to pin down my next army project and I'm taking commissions from friends to help me fund it. This army was about 75% funded. I want my next project 100% funded. Nothing like doing something I love for free!
