Hey guys, today I thought I’d start a series of posts showing my very own Necron army that I have been painting up bit by bit. First up are 12 Necron Warriors along with 9 Canoptek Scarabs.
I have already painted 36 Warriors, but found it easier to show the 12 rather than trying to get 36 models into one photo. I’m really enjoying painting this army. I tend to work on them between other model projects in short burst’s. So for example if I’m waiting for some Orks to dry, quickly get out the Necrons and start painting the eyes in. Then return to the Orks. For the colour scheme I went for the traditional Necron look, but also wanted them to have a dirtier moody look. For the metallic scheme I used GW Leadbelcher, Vallejo Oily Steel and Vallejo air Chrome. What do you guys think? What armies are you painting up?
I really like your high contrast style on Necrons. It reminds me of how lightning flashes, giving you a still-shot of the things that go bump in the night.
I'm painting terrain at the moment, all armies on standby for their turn in the paint queue.
Hey cheers guys for the positive feedback. The Necrons are a lot of fun to paint up and hopefully I will finally get to the gaming table with them when all done.
Looks great TEY. Was this solely spray gun or some sharp brush highlights added in?
Not familiar using a spray gun and these guys look like a relatively good place to start, given the uniform colours. Any tips for painting these guys would be appreciated mate.
Hi Chris, They are all painted with just a regular brush. The airbrushed areas are the bases. To paint it was very easy. Over a black undercoat I basically drybrushed GW Leadbelcher, then drybrushed Vallejo Oily Steel and then covered the model in GW Black wash. Once this had dried I drybrushed Vallejo Chrome. For rust I used thinned down Burnt Umber oil and added some Mig pigment rust colour. I cant remember though which green I used. I think it was GW Dark Angel green. Hope this helps.

They sure give a dark and grim look
But still bright enough to show the details
Just as Necrons should be (=
