And here is my current army model list. Monoliths gotta love 'em.
Unlimited Pts - Necrons Roster

6 Destroyers
7 Flayed Ones
1 Gauss Pylon
3 Heavy Destroyers
10 Immortals
5 Lord
5 Monolith
5 Pariahs
10 Scarab Swarms
1 The Deceiver
1 The Nightbringer
1 Tomb Spyder
60 Warriors
6 Wraiths
Total Roster Cost: 5367


I actually just started a necron army so only have a few destroyers, scarabs, and warriors finished so far. Srry for the bad pics, Im not a good painter but I love painting my necrons as much as I love fighting with them.

Kaiju Senso

Finally decided to get some images of my Necrons. These aren't 100% complete yet (notice no finished bases for example) but are the furthest along and what I consider decent table paint. This is roughly 2250 points depending on wargear and I have another 2000 to get up to this level still, ugh! I'm not much for painting, as long as it looks decent, I'm fine with it.

Nightshade Thorn

Hey all.

This is my first time on the 40k boards in quite some time, but I played my first game of 5th edition yesterday and what with the New DE codex ready to pop at anytime my interest has again been piqued.

The game was a bit bland, one of those games where he kept rolling saves and I kept rolling WBB. A bit of a slog with no decisive moments. Anyway, I decided my first game of 5th didn't go so well because my Necrons were last painted when the codex first came out, and as we all know the Dice Gods favour well painted models...

So I decided to try a new colour scheme.

I wanted to make them more dynamic and almost alive, but not because of course, that would defy the point of running a dead army. I decided the only "life" on the models should come from the Gauss gun, the rest should look completely dead. I decided the murky glow and dilapidation of the Necrons Codex cover was the way to go. 

What do you think? Good look? How could I improve the look? Any creative criticism and in no time I'll have an entire Tomb to show here!

Oh to love, to live, to feel.


Finally, I have some pictures for you
The Necrons of Celestrial (an Ice planet):

Necron Destroyers:

Necron Warriors:

Tomb Spyder: (unfinished)


All my finished models, I've tryed flocking them, to give them the impressive they have just risen up out of the Snow covered ground.


Lord of Winter and War

My army as it stands now.

Necrons Vs Dark Eldar 1850pts.

Major Update

Just finished painting a Monolith, and decided to get some shots of my army so far. Still have some models unpainted, and plenty more unbuilt. The tomb just keeps growing.

I have been asked, why paint them this way? Whats with all the Yellow and Purples? The truth is, I dislike predominantly metalic armies. I collected Iron Warriors for many years, and I became tired of such a scheme. Therefore I chose to go with complimentary colours. I like the way it turned out.

All are 1500pts, generally, unless multiple players in the game, or specified.

I am working on my Necrons as a special project and the colour scheme was actually picked as I can do 95% with a Tank or Standard Brush, so it is pretty fast... here is a Link to TMGM by moc065 that will help you see how the army was re-done for 5th Ed.

Hey Guys,
I thought i'd post up pictures of my finished Tomb Stalker (above you'll see other units from my army, I'm the guy with the Snowy Necrons).

Tomb Stalker

The Tomb Stalker, had just flung itself on a piece of debris; an ultramarine thunderhawk wing, that is slowly being claimed by the snow. It readies itself to pounce on to it's victims.
The idea behind this model was to give it the impression that it scuttles beneath snow dunes and then pounces out, unexpectantly.


ok, here's a blurry army pic. I wsh i could take good pics, dammed blindness...


The story behind the pictures...

I am lazy and I enjoy procrastinating so I've been playing with non-primed,armless nercons. I have a table in my apartment so it's never really been an issue. But there was a Damnos(sp?) event at the GW and I figured I'd join in, I had a week I could TOTALLY get them painted and based after all I did have one done so I had my theme. Despite the fact that I'd only ever painted 5 models and the fact the I've never played in public, I signed up(Monday, event is Saturday at 11:30).

I had my plan
Monday-Turn a talos, a warrior, a destroyer and some epoxy into a Lord/Finish building the 'lith
Tuesday-Build everything else.
Wednesday-make bases and spray-prime everything.
Thursday-Make everything purple that should be purple
Friday-Paint the non-purple things gold/green
         -put in the rods
         -Highlight if time permits

Time did not permit.

What actually happend:
Monday-Started my very first conversion(lord) and the 'lith.
            -Got all of the warrior arms ready
             "On time, oh yeah!"

Tuesday- Woke up early for work;did the destroyer bases and built the wraiths
             -After work built everything AND cut all of the "bricks"
            "Ahead of schedule, oh yeah!"

Wednesday- Too cold to spray prime, roommate doesn't want cancer so I can't do it inside.
                   -Glued bricks to bases
                       "Will I get it done? oh ...yeah."

Thurdsay- Too cold to spray prime
                  "Oh yeah... I live in Manitoba"

Friday-Work late, get home at 7:00pm
         -Convinced roommate that it won't be that bad.
         -8:00pm-Spray-primed and started painting
         -Knocked over the wraiths and had to rebuild them
         -Painted bases
         -Broke/rebuild wraiths
         -All of the warriors
         -General hijinyx that proved I needed sleep(including breaking the wraiths)
         -4-6am nap
         -shower then Spill paint everywhere
         -Realised that the paint that I needed was now everywhere except for on the Destroyers
         -Realised that I had forgotten about the wraiths
         -10am-show up at GW for opening to buy paint.
         -11:30 watch as one of the IG plays get replaced as he "Didn't have time to paint"
         -Convince the GW worker that the spray-primed black was part of my theme
         -5:00pm win the Damnos Mission despite being short 2 Necron Players (bass voice "Oh.... yeah...!")

Once they get painted properly I'll update the photos/have close ups.

My Phaeron has awoken from his slumber!

I think my painting is getting a little better then before.

Come on lets see some of those new models!

Dark Pariah

Just wanted to show some of the stuff I have done since the new dex

Triarch Stalker

Night / Doom Scythe

Ghost Ark

The green plastic spoons were something I added to show Quantum Shielding (I know the Scythe doesnt have it but it looked out of place without some clear green bling).

Would you care to put up a tutorial for that Triarch stalker of yours?

Would love to but I dont have any progress shots  :(

Used all the spare pilot seats from the Annihilation Barge kits ( I have 5 in total ) to make the legs, spiked lower legs for the 4 rear were made from Lychgaurd shields, plasticard for the front legs and rear arch, various other bits and pieces ( really cant remember ) were all put together to make up the cockpit section.

The spoons are made of win, either bluetack or magnetize them and if your vehicles survive the penetrating hit simply remove the quantum shielding.

Glad to see some new models finally! The custom Scythe and Stalker look great although I feel the real Stalker model will be more Defiler sized but the size of the Scythe looks exactly like how I pictured it. Boy you sure have a ton of the new models! I'm working on my first Ark and Barges as we speak and your Quantum Shielding idea is very creative.

I fear that! I have seen several Stalkers done using the Ghost Ark kit as a basis, but I personally think they are too big. This one stands hust a little taller than a Dreadnaught and can be hidden quite well. As the fluff talks about these things skittering away before the enemy can react, I imagined them to be smaller.

Now to the Scarabs, with Entropic Strike, Scarab Farming and Apoc games, you can never have enough!
