This Necron Lord is the third unit I’ve completed for the Tale of the Mega Painters project. It took around 20 hours to paint, mainly because I was photographing each step as I went along for tutorials.
More angles after the jump.
I want my HQ to stand out so I thought it would be a good idea to use some more advanced techniques like NMM style blades, glow effect (OSL), rust and weathering powders. My favourite part is the Galaxy he is holding in his hand. I was just going to paint this as a glowing blue orb, but he has enough of those already so i wanted to do something different. I haven’t seen this idea done before (apart from the film Men in Black).
Check back over the next few days to see the detailed and comprehensive tutorials on how to paint this model.
