Update on the Necron Situation

Here are three finished Necron warriors, on patrol before returning to base to recharge their batteries and listen to Kraftwerk.

The legs were cut and repositioned on the right and centre model. The heads were turned by cutting down the pistons on the left side of the head, as if they had retracted. The "glowing" green parts of the guns (phased plasma rifles in the 40 watt range) were replaced with plastic rod and the bayonets were cut off.

The metal was silver washed with dark tone (black) and strong tone (dark brown). The paint was bleached bone or the equivalent, highlighted with skull white and dabbed in places with strong tone to look dented or dirty. The eyes are simply red with orange dots.

I like the way they've turned out, but it took a lot of effort!

Cracking work on the Necron!

The reposes make them look far better and the bone and metal finish to their armour is really effective!

Can't wait to see what else you come up with!

Thanks! I do think the reposing helps the models enormously (other people have done it before me) but it's a lot of work and easy to mess up. Along with Tau fire warriors, basic Necrons are some of the worst rank-and-file models in 40k. I'm not sure what's next either!
