44 magnets, 20 nail heads, 3 steel plates and just a smidgen of aluminium putty. My fully magnetised Necron Pimpmobile is built. If I ever tried to take this to another country and went through airport security they would probably blow it up in a controlled explosion. "Whats in the bag, sir? Never mind, we're going to detonate it, just to be sure."
|Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battlestation|
Drilling all the magnet holes had to be done by hand because I broke my Dremel. This was fun. My hand is still aching. I used this YouTube tutorial (sans Dremel) as a guideline if you are foolhardy enough to want to repeat this experiment.
|Oh, I'm afraid the Quantum shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive|
I doubt that my opponents would allow such a travesty to make it to the tabletop but I'm sure the argument over points cost would be interesting. So, I will reluctantly have to use it as either a Ghost Ark or a Doomsday Ark. This is good because I can now run an Annihilation Nexus formation.
|Drive me closer, I want to stop pointing at things|
Do Necron players ever run anything except formations in a Decurion? Seems inefficient to me but it does dissuade you from using some of the funky named characters (unless you want to take multiple HQs in a Royal Court). I'd quite like to use Illuminor Szeras instead of an overlord as he potters around on spider legs and pokes around inside the brains of Eldar. I think his rules are quite good too. But then I would lose the army wide 4+ reanimation protocols which is a huuuge debuff. It occurs to me that everything is cheese unless you are running it in your own army. Having said that, I've only won 1 game so far with a Decurion.

Oh well, after all that faffing around, I'll probably only ever use it as a Ghost Ark. The futuristic take on a human spine and rib cage is very clever I reckon. Death motifs, gotta love 'em. We should be thankful. At least they aren't skull faced warriors sculling about in a giant skull boat.
|The ability to remove and/or fold the guns from/into the carriage makes transporting the model massively less frustrating.|
having built two of these, I can't imagine the effort needed to magnetize them, youtube tutorial or not. but then, I'm speaking to the guy who created a carnifex in utero, simply because he could.ReplyDelete
It only took eleventy twelve hours. I wasn't doing anything else that weekend.Delete
Crikey.... how many magnets, Well done looks really good.ReplyDelete
Thanks. Yeah, this amount of magnets might be a bit OTTDelete
