They look great. I got to ask how you got the red to be kinda metallic?

Thanks.

Not sure what do you mean by "metallic" looking. Must be the varnish I used. After painting, I spray on gloss varnish, then wait for it to be completely dry.
Then another coat of matte varnish. Kills the shiny effect, but colours remain enhanced. It also protects your minis and paintjob from chipping and other
hazards. The only downsides are it not being to everyone's taste, and when you take photos, lighting/reflections can be really weird.

Wow, incredible work here on the old Necrons, older models are always off putting to me and seem easily outshined by the newer platic kits, but these metal models were clearly cared for. Keep up the work, I'm excited to see the undead legions ranks swelling even as 8th approaches!

Thank you.

Moving on. Fix bayonets! A unit of Necron Immortals with Tesla Carbines. Chopped the bayonets from plastic Gauss Blasters and just affixed them to carbines.
Perhaps I should have went with 32mm bases, but these will do for now (don't have bigger ones anyway). Tesla weapons are back with a vengeance,
can't wait to take these boys for a test drive.

Hi guys, back after a long break.

My very first attempt at NMM. Necron (Over)lord all done. Doubt I'll attempt this again any time soon, too much time, work, and effort involved. Enjoy.

Triarch Praetorian, first of many yet to come. Definitely looks better on a 32mm base (you get 25mm for these). Slowly building up my Elite corps.

Thanks for the feedback.

Moving on. Captain of the Lychguard. Shame Necrons don't have unit champions, but that shouldn't stop you from making your own minis stand out. Converted from old 3rd edition metal Necron Pariah (RIP to the best piece of Necron fluff). Made him a trophy rack adorned with skulls of all those who were foolish enough to cross his path. Turned out quite well, I think.

"The other" Captain of the Lychguard. Another converted old Necron Pariah (RIP) from bitz and pieces. This one has a back banner adorned with the head of his predecessor...or something similar, no idea, I just felt like putting it. Who knows, he might even find use as a character with the new codex.

Great job, as always, you are really spoling us at this point!

I was wondering about something, your very distinct style produces an impression of throbbing or pulsing, the red and green almost come alive.

Could this be expanded on wraiths (I notice you have already painted a unit of old style wraiths). They have wraithflight, ie they shift in and out of existance. Could the pulsating/throbbing style you have, be used to represent this phasing out and in existance of the wraiths in any way?

Necrons are one of my favourite armies in 40k, but I have never seen a color scheme like this again.

And to say they are beautiful is an understatement. They are gorgeous! Good job!

Not sure what you mean by this, I guess it could be a side effect of matte varnish over gloss varnish I usually do on all of my minis. Extra layer of protection against chipping + colour enhancement for colours. Lighting in photos could also contribute to it.

Yeah, I suppose it could pass for that, but I'd do it differently, like "blending" in with their surroundings (the base in this case), becoming transparent or something similar. Might actually contemplate on how to do that one in the future, once I get the new wraiths.

Yeah its near impossible to explain in words.

The sword and shield of the lychguard sergeant , the green lines over the red shoulder armor of the immortals, they seem to pulsate, they seem very alive. (to me at least). Same with the blue material of the banner of the sergeant, it seems alive and flickering/pulsing

Could something similar be used to enhance the flickering in and out of the entire wraith model. I haven't the slightest clue where to start, obviously there is no such thing as transparent paint, so some sort of color interaction with the base is perhaps the best thing.

I was airbrushing lead belcher on my wraith tails 2 days ago, the silver hitting the nearest bulges of the tails first, leaving the farthest bends a bit darker, and in the lowly lit room I was working in it gave a weak impression that the darker parts of the tail could be seen as fading out of existance.

I don't know where to start to try to enhance that effect on the entire model, and perhaps it will never work in a properly lit area. But I'm contemplating shading out those far bulges of the tail again and see how it works.

Moving on.

Lychguard with Warscythe prototype. Painted one just so I could see how it would turn out, and I'm pleased with the results. A whole unit of these is in the works.

Really pleased too!

One question though: How about making the head pop out more? Now the upper half of his body, most of the visible part of the body in this particular stanse, is one big red area. Especially with the bronze red spine which seems to try to add some variety, but ends up being quite similar to the other red.

(Could just be the lighting and the angles, models with other stances might look different)

What about making his face icy blue? Like the grip on the warscythe? Could perhaps tie the colors of the model even better together? And introduce some balance and variety?

And just to reiterate, I'd be thrilled if I could paint my entire army to your standards)

Thanks for feedback.

Yeah, I've given it some thought, but decided against it. Lighting in photos does make it look a bit weird or monotonous, but with proper highlights and a freehand it looks a lot better. Bluish haft looks ok for variety, but blue head would be a bit overkill, imo.

Also, his head is actually metallic . The red part is the mask, and the crest is golden, so I feel it adds a bit to the overall impression.

Hm yeah I agree,a big round face would be too much blue.

It's all about red and green, everything else must be subtle.

Anrakyr the Traveller, Lord of the Pyrrhian Legions. Totally forgot I ordered him months ago, he arrived just today. He is special/mail order now or something, I'm not sure. Either way, a nice miniature, and nice backstory too.
