The Purplecrons now have a MONOLITH. Well, sort of. It’s paper. Twelve sheets, to be exact. Three more and I could have built a ‘friggin Thunderhawk. So many sub-assemblies and layers. Took quite a bit of ink to print out the swatches to match the paint colors too.
Closeup of all dem deathmarks. I first tried out the color scheme for the army on one of them, and it sold me on it.
The plain Necron lord with Rez orb was an interesting piece to build. I never do seem to get any good photos of the sculpting work on the cloak.
a shot showing the regular necron warriors. Painting 32 of these guys was an effort. 8 points of white, 18 points of silver, 7 points of green, 2 shade washes and 2 spots of black were applied to each figure.
The auction is still up on ebay right now. Please feel free to bid on it.
Selling the Purple Necrons
To help cover the cost of rebuilding and replacing things from the fire, I’m selling my Necron army I’ve been painting for the past few months. It’s up on ebay now at the following link:
There’s more pictures on the ebay page. The auction is for 2 night/doom scythe fleyers, 2 Catacomb/Annihilation Barges, a Necron Overlord, a Necron Lord with custom sculpted cape, Two Finecast Cryteks, 9 Deathmark snipers, 32 Necron Warriors and the new Codex: Necrons. I’ve got over $300 and thirty hours put into the project, and while I did enjoy building and painting it, I’m hoping to get a bit money out of it.
I’ll try and swap out the pictures tonight with some more recent ones. The bases have all been covered with black sand drybrushed in dark grey to look like ashes with a few skulls and bones scattered among the many bases. One of the barges pictured here is not finished in the picture, but it has since been completed. All the vehicles are magnetized to accept either vehicle option. The auction included additional paints and boxes to carry the figures and vehicles.
I still have to do the highlighting, but this will be the color scheme for the necron army I’m building. The purple is actually a ceramic stain that is VERY bright. The color scheme works great for the overlord and deathmark, but the necron warriors look like they’re wearing football shorts and shouldrpads. Oh, and the Command Barge is going to be hell to paint.
