Actually, it's been a long time since SL and I have played 40k. Years... 2, 3? I do run with a lot more competitive gaming crowd here in Madison that SL does out in the hoolies. For a while there it was funny as I kept trying to scale back the power of my lists and would still end up running over SL's forces. Just goes to show... "competitive" is a matter of your local environment. My current AdMech army is way off meta but I still think quite good. Hopefully we'll get the chance to see how it stands up to SL's Crons soon.

It will be!

My eldest and I played a lot of Crons vs. AdMech this past year. How it turned out depended on the units chosen (which seemed to be more important for Necrons than the AdMech) and the scenario. Were I building a Necron force from scratch... I'd start with 3 full units of Praetorians, 3 Canoptek Doomstalkers and the Nightbringer. Anything beyond that is just window dressing. Add 3x 5-man squads of immortals and some kind of HQ to make it legal and you'll be set (and under 2k).

That would be a very difficult list to deal with. Kind of a "Here it comes, stop it if you can." approach. Simple to run, fast & brutal.

I've been picking up some new SM units, hoping to bring them to Acon, assuming it happens and they get painted (shipping freeze between us and Oz)

First weekend I didn't work in ... a long time.

Had a whole day to myself.. so I did what any hobbyist would do... Clean. Yep went through alot of my piles. Sorted and put away in clear storage containers. Found stuff I was missing. Found stuff I didn't know I even had. Freed up a bunch of display space for the continuation of Armies I have and I have yet to build.

I found I have 2 boxes of Dark Imperium? Death Guard? I suspect they have the Marine stuff in it as well.. Why did I by this? Twice? About 50
Cultists, a Helldrake. 100's of first born Marines, alot of early mark armor variants for my once planned 30K army.

Enough Mechanicus figures to field about 3000 pts

Old Imperial Guard figures from previous Adepticon displays when we played in the Team tournament and I built the display boards for the teams. Probably 3 Leman Russ tanks, Chimera. A couple of Sentinals.

A load of the old Rhino's and Variants. 1st edition 'Egg' Dreads and 2 of the original Imperial Robots.

About 3/4 of the way done through the mystery boxes. More surprises ahead hopefully.

All this is in prep for clearing my table for the Knight Fight new table build. Still working on my Necron table and hope to be done with all my Adepticon Prep (3 armies and Terrain ) by the end of Nov or Mid Dec at the latest. Alot depends on if I can settle on what's in my lists and the new Nid rules in the new campaign book.

Sorry for the phone camera pics. My good camera is still broken and I've already sent it to be repaired but had the same problem occur shortly after getting it fixed. The symbols and lettering are not that pixelated.
if you click on the photo they are much clearer.

Here is a pics of all my current painted Necrons. There are some in these pics that still need repainted to the new theme and a bunch of them need new basing. That will be a future endevor as I finish all the stuff I need for Adepticon.

What's not in the picture is an additional Doom Stalker, an additional Wraith and 24 Scarab bases. All primed and ready for more time away from work. Still in boxes Tecnomancers, 2x units from the Indominus boxes ( characters , Skorpekh lords, 2 units of Skorpekh Destroyers, 40 warriors with the new Gauss Reapers, 4 Cryptothralls, 2 Royal Wardens, 2 Canoptek Reanimators). 2x units of Ophydian Destroyers. a Hexmark Destroyer, Unit of Praetorians, Box of Tomb blades. An additional Doomstalker, 2 more Wraiths on sprue. 3x Lokhust Destroyers, Tesseract Ark, The Silent King, The Void Dragon and the Convergence of Dominion. There are probably some odds and ends I missed.

What I need next is more Lychguard... as I added them to my current list.

Thanks,

Next on the painting block.. 24 Scarab bases. I'll do them in 3 batches of 8 with slight variations as to insure I can tell what units they belong too on the tabletop. Then on to my last Wraith completing my 2 units of 5. Then on to some Crypteks which feature greatly in my Adepticon list.

To finish off my list I ordered some Lychguard and Praetorians. Though I probably have enough bits to Kitbash some together.

That’s a great looking army SL, I really like your color scheme. That blue looks great as a off set color. Thanks for sharing these I always enjoy seeing army shots.

Ooh. I like those. Are the different colored-eyes squad distinctions or just for visual variety? Either way, they look pretty boss, and props for getting them finished.

That is correct.. 3x squads of 8...good eye. I didn't want to make them too different so the obvious was the eye color.

Next Up is the last Wraith, then on to some Tecnomancers and Cryptothalls. Getting close to My Adepticon finished list.

Ahh. The life of the unemployed.

So keeping myself busy. Finished the 3 remaining terrain piece's for my Necron board. Below is one of the two Mausoleums. Also finished the small pyramid.

Recently painted some small objective markers in the form of small obelisks. They are painted with the Necron style glow but in blue instead. (I painted all my Canoptek units in blue as well). So I found these objective radius control area pads to go under them. Same color. Very cool.

Then on to rebasing all the different themes I had throughout the years and basing those units I never got too. Pic of basing in progress

Lastly I started painting the two Gauss Sentry pylons that replicates those found in the DOW games. Still wip. I don't like the glow in the vanes so I will switch to the AB most likely.

the current necron model are a big improvement. My girl friend bought a lot that game with a small group of original necrons and its really funny to see the 3 different waves of the necron lines.

Yeah. The standard Cryptek in the middle is half the size of the others.

Found an old Leviathan, so I painted it up for my new SM. Not in my current list but another model off my backlog.
