So the 2 weeks last week were consumed with me saving the galaxy from the Reapers. Damn it I love ME…

With that out of my system, I’ve knuckled down and built all my troops (for the most part) so I can start to crank out my infantry. I also want to actually try the army out and let my friend Dave destroy me with his GK. It’s a damn strange thing to watch your army fight another of your armies…

Here’s what I’ve been busy with:



While I'm not a big fan of the warrior kit, I did pick up a few boxes to get some scarabs. May as well paint a squad.



A gambl'in mans gun for a gambl'n mans game. Tesla Immortals. F-Yeah!



The Overlord kit is nice, but I really wish they made this out of plastic. It screams “I’m going to break and piss you off nicely in the not so distant future.”





I’m also trying out a new design for my Crypteks. Slightly larger, but it looks really good.


I’ll have some paint work to post shortly as well.

Stay tuned!

That's a fair few Necrons you have ready for painting now.

The Crypteks are looking very cool.

I know and do have one partially painted in this very thread. But the pose is very static and uninteresting. I'll likely be kit-bashing to build some custom lords in the future.

Greetifications!

Sorry for my silence lately. A combination of work and school over the last few weeks has cut into my hobby time. Here’s what I’ve been picking busy with.







First, I finally finished my Doomsday Ark. I really like this kit. I thing it’s the largest 40k model I’ve ever worked on and next to the Tomb Stalker the most complex. That said, this will likely be the last Ark I work on for a LONG while.



Next, I’ve been replicating my Tomb Spider replacements. They look good as a collective. I will probably end up keeping them unless GW releases a multiple model PLASTIC kit. A nice multi-model plastic kit that makes Spiders or Wraiths would be damn sweet. Screw Finecast. Seriously…





Finally I’ve been cranking out scarabs like mad. The initial batch looks good painted. 5 down, 35 to go...

I’ll be focusing on my troops for a while. It’s best to get the irritating repetitive stuff out of the way so you can enjoy the single sexy units.

I’ll post more as I progress.

Another excellent plog soul of iron! Really look forward to more.

I think the tron-crons look great but is it weird that i want to see the use of other Neon colours as well?

That Doomsday Ark is very inspiring Sol, the painting is so smooth and the way you did the glow effect is excellent.

Love the scarabs as well.

The rider's hat does look like a bonnet.

I left it cause there would have been real trouble repainting as everything glued together.

Very nice painting, it looks clean, crisp. I await to see what you do with the Cryptek and the Overlord, as well as the Tomb Stalker.

Thanks all!

Here’s some more Thokt goodies I’ve finished this week. I have to say I grow fonder of this paint scheme with each mini finished.



First up, I’ve finished 8 more immortals. That’s 12 done out of the 32 I have built. Not bad, but still quite a bit to do.



Next up I finished the Deathmark unit I started a while back. They not only look good finished, but these bastards really can pack a punch on the tabletop. That is before they are blasted off of the table by returning fire…





Next the Overlord I was picking at. After several weeks looking at him I thing I’ll be leaving the rusted color on him to add a serious distinction between him and the standard foot troops. The warm colors of the rust really stand out as a nice contrast.





Finally here’s a Heavy Destroyer conversion I’ve had sitting around for the about a month. I really was not to fond of how the tesla cannon (A. Barge kit) looked attached to the destroyer chassis. Friends at the store I frequent liked it and told me it would come together after it was painted, and I’d be damned if they weren’t right! I love the look of this thing!

That’s all for now. I need to build some more Crypteks. Can’t have enough of those! I’ll also fashion a new Overlord from the A-Barge/Praetorian kits. The Finecast one I had broke last weekend. I won’t be making anymore Finecast purchases.

More to come as I progress.

I had a build-a-thon with some friends this weekend and here's what I made:





I'm really fond of this Cryptek design, I can't wait to see them painted.



I also hammered out a new Overlord to replace the resin one that broke. I like this style even more then the first. While I enjoy painting Res Orbs, the concept of physically carrying them around on the battlefield did not work for me. I spotted this design on CMoN (Cool Mini or Not) last week and had to steal it. A wrist mounted Res Orb, made from a whittled down voidblade, is much more functional for swinging around a Warscythe.

I'm going to start on the Stalker this week. Shouldn't be hard to finish.

Looking good! Seems everyone is doing the alternate Cryptek design these days.
Also, I hope you don't mind if I steal borrow the wrist-mounted Res Orb.

Not at all. I need to find where I stole it from on CMoN. Give it's creator his proper due.

Wow, Shawn. I had no idea you started this Necron force. They look absolutely amazing. I'm a little surprised you've moved from skeletons to metal skeletons, but they look stunning. I really like the paintjob and am glad I came across your new thread. Excited to see more of this unravel.

@Moltar - Hey there! I've been picking at this army for a few months. Just started paying some real attention to it. It's coming along well.

@Breazer - Glad you like! Necrons are a fun game. I've had terrible luck with 40K armies (Tyranids & Daemons). The 'Crons have done well by me.

GREAT OGGLY BOOGLY,
These models are INCREDIBLE!
(had been tossing up between doing a Tron theme or a super shiny Battlestar-esque chrome theme for my tin-men... I think I have my answer now)

You, sir, just became my painting hero.

I don't suppose you're going to be doing a Monolith with this color scheme, are you?
(yes, I realize they're not so wonderful to play with anymore, but I have a feeling it would look quite striking with that high contrast black and cobalt paint job)
