Default Warp Gate (Update)

A few days ago after watching a few episodes of Stargate SG-1 (or Atlantis i can't remember) I was inspired to make a Warp or Stargate and I figured I could make it fit with my (exceedingly slowly) growing army of necrons. My problem now is how to paint it? It's for a necron army but I'm not to sure I want a green and black scheme. Comments or suggestions are welcome.




the enemy of my enemy's enemy is my enemy.....i think

May not your shot be positioned by your enemy, but your enemy positioned by your shot.

First of all, thats really cool!

Second of all, I am really not that knowledgable about necron schemes. It would probally have a black singe around the middle part of the circle (From the warp). You definitely need to have silver in there but not green. Black would also be a nice color if you could pull it off.

First of all, nice job.

Second of all, use the scheme from the show, only where the chevrons are use green instead of the maroon color.

Third of all, don't forget the dialer!

tau dont respond the warp, so no. necrons don't like the warp or psykers either, so no. but a Portal thats not warp based still fit the necrons, green energy and stuff.

so, this looks very nice!. paint the necrons dark, to make the glowing green stand out

metalic black (gloss)

If you remembered many years ago an artical on dark eldar where they showed you how to paint faded waves. that would look awsome

-Disney: He's the puppet master, both our damnation and salvation. He rewards our successes and punishes us for our hubris (often in subtle but horrible ways). I suggest we do our best not to anger him, he is the greatest asset to our campaign and potentially the most fearsome foe we'll ever face.

Did you read the post where he said that it was inspired by the show?

Anyways that looks Fantasic Flaming Aun. I really like it, you've done a great job. Is that just made out of foamcore? Also would be annoyed if I "borrowed" your idea?

For painting I would suggest something dark, a glossy black sounds good, with green details painted on.
