Default Color shifting Necrons

These are some test figures that I did for my Necron army that I am going to build eventually.




The paint used is an airbrush paint from auto air colors, it is called Flair Tint Violet. it runs around $25usd for a 4 ounce bottle. Instead of airbrushing it on, I just brushed it on over black primer/chaos black where the drybrushing got on it.

There is a youtube video that also tries to show the color shifting of the paint, I think it does it fairly well, but it isn't near as good as it looks in real life.

That's really nice. It gives them a great alien metallic effect that really suits the necrons.

I like what I see ^^
Does the paint give that effect from just one coat?

One coat will give you the effect, a second coat really intensifies it however.

Looks really good, an interesting technique that could have a number of applications, such as on Tyranids, for example.

I like!

Literally looks like there's a blue light shining onto it! Really cool!

no special lights were used at all for the pictures. The camera flash made them look really purple, while non flash you can see the shifting.






Some more pictures for everyone.

Very nice. It looks unique and totally alien from any of the other races, which is perfect. ;D

It looks good, but IMHO way WAY to purple. Keep it green or "metallic".
