Rusticrons revisited

Slowly getting back into it.  The failed colour scheme has been completely replaced.

before

Rather than cleaning the models, I applied a solid coat of "White Knight Squirts" quick dry enamel silver over the top.  I think it cost about $9.  Preparation is everything, so I masked out the guns and the ammo pipes first with blu-tac.  That way I didn't have to repaint them.

after

Very happy with the results.  It was only a few hours work in total so I don't know why I didn't do it as part of the original speed painting Necrons project.


I've also nearly finished painting my Canoptek Moth conversion and was feeling very pleased with myself because I haven't bought any new Necrons since 2013 but, miraculously, had all the models to field a Decurion with 2 Canoptek harvests.

I was so pleased in fact, that I bought a Necron Battleforce to go with it.  The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.  My Night Scythes are a bit shite now and the C'tan Shard is laughable for the points so more core troops might help. I might put a little more care and attention into the new models though.  It will have to involve magnets, surely.  Maybe some Flayed One kit bashes?

  2. Good to see you back! The yellow is much nicer than the red, but the hive mind finds their lack of biomass disturbing.

    1. The Hive Minds are displeased with my incompetence on the battlefield and I have fallen out of favour. I need to find a way to worm my way back into their benevolence.
