Figured to start with my newest WIP - Necron Warriors for my son's Necron army (& 4 Swarms)



Base coated, bases done (magnetised & put a washer on the bottom, so they can all fit in a cookie tin I happen to have available).

he has requested blue =D

If I can figure out how to fit it in, likely I'll do the little bits blue. I'll post a couple versions I think, get opinions before I do the whole lot. I have a couple blue paints I want to try out as well, one is an actual metallic blue from Reaper I really liked the look of, have to see how it looks in use though.

These are three of the colour schemes I've come up with (the blue is a metallic blue paint)

the first is just basic blue washes - not sure the colours come out in the pic :(
the second is (blurry!) blue on the gun and the chest piece only, no wash
the third is quite a lot more blue, the chest piece, the shoulders, helmet, and bits between major limb areas

Which one do you like? Or what combo would you like better? I'm thinking of going with the last one, except I don't quite like the helmet as it's so dark

The blue washes are a nightmare to photograph and I'm sorry to say that I can't really make out the blue in the two other pics.

That said, I'd definitely vote blue gun pipe because the it makes some sense that the energy is flowing through three from the blue crystal. Blue eyes are a must. Blue shoulders and silver head would make a good scheme. I worry the joins between body parts may not come off. Have you thought about making up some templates or masking off sections of limb parts to colour in blue? Could work as an identification means between warriors? Other than that you could try painting the ribs blue, but it would make a lot of blue on the torso.

I've just realised that I've probably thrown up more confusion, sorry! :(

hah no, it's np - it's really really hard to show the colours in a pic, I'm not sure why >< Too subtle I guess. I did throw it in a lightbox with three lights but meh.

Anyway, some variation on #3 might be good, the more I look at it the more I dislike the all blue head as well >< Anyway, back to work Worse case, I can repaint them and if my #3 son is really into them, like I'm hoping, I'll undoubtedly be doing more soon! These are for his birthday at the end of the week so I really need to get moving lol

Awesome Doomscythe!!! The blue looks so good contrasted against the black. That's one of the reasons I went for blue too. Also I was fed up of being conformist!!!

Thanks guys!

Should have close to final pics up later today - like *right* before I give it to my son lmao. I'm supposed to be done now >< almost, just waiting on some washes to dry to do final highlights on metals. Thinking about the edge highlighting on the black panels. Not sure if I should just go for the lighter blue or put an undercoat of the darker and then the lighter. Might have to test first.

I got the last black layer on the panels, which muted the blue glowy a bit down, but I think it still looks good. Since I couldn't get my airbrush to cooperate anymore I did them by hand <ouch> thankfully it's not that large of a vehicle. It looks ok I think, but needs must and all that. Sigh.

Almost done with the guns, and I'm going to wait on the final gun or portal to see which he really wants. Knowing him tho, it'll be the BIG GUN lol

Finished some more of my Malifaux gremlins tonight (well except for the guy in the red hat >< I only realized I forgot to finish his highlights after taking this picture sigh) Putting the arms/guns together was quite hard, I couldn't get them lined up quite right. Finally just got them on as best I can sigh. Hoping they stay on!

Top two/three boxes are empty. Then we have Manufactorum, Balewind Throne thingy, and Garden of Morr. IoB set behind all those.




Reaper stuff for some figures I'm attempting to make for my RP group in a couple campaigns we're doing. I expect to hopefully have these ready for Christmas presents this coming December.




bunch of my reaper minis - bones on the right, mostly giant, orc, goblins and familiars.




most of my old school and other metal minis for my Skaven army, censor bearers, named characters on left; bits and a ton of giant rats in the rubbermaid containers on left.




bunch of stuff for my son's VC army, more Skaven stuff (Thanquol is up there somewhere, the new Stormvermin), Skitarii and a few more terrain pieces, like the promethian pipes and the GW trees. Couple of random boxes I got in trades and some empties as well, mostly full tho. Malifaux Gremlins and Arcanists are tucked into the left corner.




just another view of the corner




80 plague monks - give or take, a pack of Stormvermin primed, another Hellpit, Hexwraiths on hold atm (working on OSL), and my box o shame, random miniatures I haven't yet done much with, that aren't GW or for one of my RPG things (yet). Plus a box of warmachine bits (Bell, WLC, etc) under the plague monks.

Now to see what we can get done this year!! ^_^

I like the colouring on the Doomscythe. I have an Eldar Falcon done in a similar way, except with yellow, orange, red instead of shades of blue.

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

@Fifty - thanks! I almost was going to do a red but my son requested the blue heh

@TC^DC - umm <looks shifty-eyed> that is the plan <cough> we'll see how it goes! On a plus side as I always say, I have plenty incase of the Zombie Apocalypse - no fear of running out anytime soon!

I've been working on putting my BaC box together (our LGS is having a contest but dunno if I'll make it by the end of the month!) - I'm trying to come up with a colour scheme for Luna Wolves that I like. I am *not* doing a white, I hate white. So I'm going to go like really light grey with maybe white highlights, that's probably the best I'll be able to manage honestly.

Couple WIP shots from this w/e:

Spoiler:





Some of the black bits are going to be metals, not stay black, like the weapons. I just don't like to use leadbelcher over white (which was what I primed with) maybe because I've done Skaven and primed black so long, I really prefer darker primers usually.

I also had a bit of a flow aid accident with my paint so yeah, even messier basecoating than I usually do lol

Looking good so far. Like how many contrast points you have there. The black/Leadbelcher areas compliment the grey well

I feel you on white primers, unless my model is going to be white or ethereal I prefer black primer as the white can show too easy if you miss even the tiniest spot. Also great job on the Luna Wolves so far! The not white is looking very smooth.

Thanks all! it's going really slowly atm sigh

Anyway, here is my prototype, if you will, for my paint scheme. (In a bad phone pic, sorry)

I'm liking it so far in its not whiteness hah Still need to do weapons, some edge highlighting and I think it'll be pretty much done. I haven't decided on weathering as of yet.
