Fences look good, Granny grating with popsicle sticks .

You know that it is an unwritten challenge to build bigger armies around here . I was really going to go all Necrons like you, but I really wanted to paint up the characters out of that box . After painting the first one (First marine since the GW Primarisizing everything), I was hooked. Someone really needs to do a chemical analysis of the plastic GW uses to see if their is some sort of contact crack in the mix.

I am hoping that I like painting the primaris. I have a reasonably long history of being somewhat enthusiastic about space Marines but never really finding a way I like to paint them. I'm hoping to teach myself xenithal highlighting and then contrast them, I'm not looking at a lot of vehicles so I should be able to use contrast without getting into its weaknesses of large flat planes.

The necrons look awesome and I'm very excited to mess with them, I'm hoping I can hit on my scheme first to try because it always slows me down making five or six things and liking none of them.

Also, the bases are chipboard, my popsicle sticks were 8 in and really wavy so I just effectively replicated them with the chipboard instead. Kind of a waste of time but I'm trying not to buy any more hobby stuff for a while and those popsicle sticks were fugly.

I'm working on the tin can fuel refinery / Depot thing now.

Use the contrasts on the models, but use regular paint (thinned) for the vehicles. Even if the colors are different you can always find a rationalization for why later.

For the Necrons I really want to stay away from the dark colors that I have seen them painted in. I know they are the "Bad Guys", but I think at some point they thought they were doing the right thing and made themselves look pristine and pretty before they went to sleep. So I will most likely have Shine-crons, possibly with big happy trees.

I am really liking the Iron Hands steel.

here is one coat of it on the bare grey plastic (sword)
Spoiler:

I'm thinking that with Wraithbone white as the main colors and either the Aethermatic Blue contrast or the Sunlight yellow for the contrast paints for energy. I'm leaning more towards yellow as they like eating stars and such.

Yeah mephrit rocks yellow iirc. I'll be doing a custom dynasty that falls somewhere between the classic silver/black/green nihilak and the newest szarakan copper, whatever strikes me in the moment and I feel like I can put across an army. And I'm okay with green death ray energy nodule thingies but I might try blue and orange and maybe even purple.

Fuel tanks or oil or what have you. Need some kinda spout or receptacle for the lower end of each.

Considering railings but honestly they'd mostly get in the way for game play so idk.

In the grim darkness of the far future, there are no OSHA regs.

What did you do to get those weld lines? Thinking of making some storage tanks myself out of old coffee cans.

Oh yes OSHA, a lesser known branch of the Inquisition.

I'm including the video that I'm using for inspiration, but TLDR draw lines with pencil and cover lines with narrow bead of hot glue.

It's funny, because this is the first time where I could see that stupid 3D pen I got being useful it could have made narrower lines than the glue gun... However it jammed or broke and has since been entombed in a drawer of apathy and shame.

I still need some valves or what not to make the tanks look semi-functional, but I went ahead and primed them so I could work on them tomorrow I could always hand paint The gubbins later.

Decided to take the easy way out on the walkways because Penny hazard stripes is a pain in the butt and look they're even pre-weathered.

Finished storage tanks.

Think I'll make the new blog soon with this focus on terrain.

Pipes! But do I bother riveting them or just stick to the simpler band?

Three sections done, I think I'm going to work on something else for a while, these are a little tedious.

Such excellent progress, I have been away too long.

Magnets on Necron Warriors is crazy, way more than my dedication level aspires too.

Keen to see the results of your contrast paint endeavors.

Pipe network looks awesome.

Ehh, I've only really started back up recently.

I just don't like the idea of locking myself into one set of weapons and it's really pretty easy. I've got my heart set on making a little display piece that can mount 10-20 of the weapons like an armory rack, but probably circular and scifi.

I'm not sure where I'll use them yet, but I like them in theory and want to apply some of them to save me some time. Given we're in the dead of winter (not that it is a very cold one here), I've ordered some vallejo surface primer and a couple of metal sprays to try out on the necrons. I may try a zenithal base for them, and I may not bother, time will tell.

Thanks, the pipes are going to the local gamestore, I hope they'll like them. It has been kinda nice making the scenery and then not having to find a place to store it

Got three pieces to the point where I could prime them tonight, pretty pleased with that stride in progress. Will update when they are complete.

Thanks Shaso

I agree Theo. It's a place called Colossus Comics, just opened in Mt Vernon in the last month or so.

I will be very disappointed if I go there and the employee isn't painted silver and speaking in a bad Russian accent . Also will not use the soap dispenser
