Default WYSIWYG

how exactly could one go about representing various powerups on a Necron Lord, in particular Veil of Darkness and Phylactery? i don't want to give ny lord an actual veil, would make him look like a greiving woman, but i can't see any oher way around it.

No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

I've never represented them on the model. I always assumed they were abilities and not something on him.

I personally feel that it is foolish to expect a lot of the "smaller" wargear items to be represented on your model, and in the case of a Necron there aren't many things you can represent on it without being an expert sculpter/painter. The Phylactery is described as an "inconspicous charm". This could be anything, it might be hidden in the insignia on his chest or head.

As for the Veil of Darkness, hes pretty much creating an absence of light shrouding himself and his squad in shadows. I don't know about you, but I find sculpting shadows pretty hard... If you want to argue that the description says it is a ghostly cloak, think of it as the cape the dude has in Spawn, it goes from regular cape to rediculously massive and twisting in the wind cape whenever he feels like it.

Really the ony upgrade I'd make someone represent WYSIWYG on a Necron Lord is Destoyer Body and maybe Warscythe/Staff of Light (personally as long as he has a staff of some kind I wouldn't care) depending on the setting.
