Belated congratulations on finishing the pandemic figures! They look excellent!

The truck is looking good too, that's about the level of rust that my own actual car has!

Thanks amazingturtles and CB! Tsk tsk tsk turtles, but at least you're thematically ready for the zombie apocalypse.

Finished the truck bed and the items in it. Quite happy with everything in here!

Thanks Antiguo Guardian!

After stumbling into a truck on the streets that was almost identical to mine, with the license plate RSTBCKT, I decided to give mine Ontario plates! I think this darker blue is a pretty good take on Ontario License Plate Blue.

Weathered the bumpers! Some antiquing medium goop mixed with different proportions of black and brown worked great to get some streaks of engine grease out the engine grill. Also did the windows. Contrast Leviadon Blue over Abaddon Black deepens and evens out the black, then two shades of gray for light reflections. Forgot to do it on the back window then!

Home stretch, just the rear window, headlights and taillights left to do before we have one zombie-apocalypse-ready escape vehicle (fuel and keys not included, gotta get those through the gameplay!)

Lol, not much choice in a zombie apocalypse in small-town Ontario.

Did the back window, but I think I messed it up. Might need to redo it. What do you think, black it over and try again?

I think that a retry would be good, yeah. Not that it's terrible, but it can be better. The rope looks excellent, though

First of all, great rust effects.

I think the window would improve if you remove or minimise the lighter highlight on the top. Rest of it looks great to me though!

Lovely rust; subdued and realistic which totally fits the truck.

You were right, the second stab at the rear window still isn't as good as the other windows, but it's much better than it was. And the headlights came out fine, meaning we have a finished mini folks!

It looks pretty good to me Gwyn! The main difference seems to be the other windows only have a short line in the middle of the length of the long lines. The back windows seem to have both colours with lines of similar length. Not sure if that makes sense?

Next project was somewhat interrupted by loosening of shutdowns enough that I could visit my parents and grandparents, which was much-needed. Started back again! Got some Immortals started. Wish I had Indomitus but alas, money is tight. I decided that I didn't like my previous "green is gauss, blue is tesla" rule, having that much extra blue was one colour too many in an already fairly busy army (silver/purple/green with bone faces is already 4 colours, and I already have Crypteks and Canopteks painted up with red on top of that to make 5. Don't need to add that much blue for a 6th colour!)

Long time no paint! The third year of law school is supposed to be super easy. "3LOL". Not, apparently, when it's all virtual! This semester has been REALLY tight on me getting any painting done, so I've gotten barely any progress done on the immortals. I really want to get them off the table though so I can hopefully get something a little more interesting on the table. So I've been painting fairly sloppily, eh, sue me.

Spoiler:


Just gotta finish off the purple (this is just two coats of the base Naggaroth Night), do the forehead stripe, OSL green and green for the Triarchy symbol, and base them.

Looking good. I like the extra attention paid to the chest vents.

Thanks CB and youwashock! I like the idea that the Necron chests are just bursting with power, that the ribcage protects the intense power source that runs their living metal bodies. Once they get OSLed it also means they're much more equal in terms of green-metal ratio.

Just a small update: finished the purple (I like how the lighter purple colour encircles and frames the head), cleaned up and got a layer of contrast white onto the head stripe. Didn't wait for it to dry to take the photo, next up is finishing the stripe, OSL, then basing and shouldermark transfers.

I really like the color scheme. Good luck with virtual law school, and I'm glad you got some hobby time. Also, very delayed reaction, but the truck looks great.

Good to see you get a little time of painting and seeing as you're studying law, I won't try to sue you for your painting progress as you suggest

Thanks DJ JJ! I'm glad you like the truck, I had so much fun painting it.

Viterbi would you believe that the joke was entirely unintentional? xD

A touch more work done: all that's left is to finish the basing and waterslide transfers!

I think the OSL is a lot more subtle from the front because of the way they hold their guns, and I'm considering removing OSL from the eyes, what do you guys think on that?

I like the OSL, but don't think it would be a deal-breaker to lose it.

Did it! Got these guys off the table! The guns are still kinda sloppy, but I decided to have some fun and throw some OSL on to the base as well, which I think really kicks these guys up a notch.

Nice one gwyn! It’s always good to clear another unit off the unpainted pile! I like the OSL On their spines, it’s a cool addition
