Default My first Necrons

Hi All,

Here are my first Necron photo's :

I went for a red scheme and wanted red rods too. But I reconsidered after tryout and stuck with the green ones. The scheme I used is based on the destroyer lord on the GW website.

Necron Destroyer Lord [newly added]




Necron Lord



Necron Warriors



Destroyer



Scarabs


reactions welcome!

Very, very nice. The colors are similar to my buddy's Necrons, except his have a 70/30 ratio of metal to red. And his aren't painting as well as your's. :P

Nice red highlights. Red is one of the more anoying colours to highlight with.I feel your work man. My Tau are red, and they are pretty hard to highlight.

Maybe you should paint a red Monolith. That would make your army unique.

Wow! Now those are some Necrons that stand out!

Much more interesting than the eternal iron-grey wall of unoriginal paintschemes you get from a lot of Necron armies...

The Red and Green work really well together and the dark Metallics for the joints have a deapth to them. I also like the 'Rusted' gun look.

The white hand on the destroyer seema a bit random (Michael Jackson Necron Style ;D), but it does tie-in with the eye piece which reminds me of the Original War of the Worlds eye pieces.

Someone did already do a red monolith and I want to make a similar one :

note : this is not mine
Go here to see more of the owners work.

Like Muffin said, the green rods come out better this way. So no red rods. It would make the overall color to monotone.(red armour plates, red base, red rods,...)

Thanks everyone for your kind words!

Currently I'm working on my Necron Lord (on foot). I will post pics when ready

Cheers!

Good luck then, bloodeyes.

Your army is one of the more unique necron armies I have seen so far. *Gives a toast*

Excellent colours. I especially like the destroyer. Almost makes me want to start Necrons now.
