    So on September 7, Kal told me that I couldn’t play my Slaanesh Knights at the Fall In tournament (boo!!!). Rather than take something else I’ve played previously I thought it would be a good, quick challenge to paint something up in two months time. Enter the Necrons that I’ve had build since 2011 and that I’ve tried twice now to finish up. What you see below is some 3,930 points that I’ve been slogging through these last eight weeks.

    I originally had plastic Chaos Androids for the Warriors but swapped them out with the old Exodus War Edonites sometime after 2017. So build, primed, and sprayed silver was pretty much my starting point except for the bigger stuff which I based (and I even painted the Destroyer bases!).

    Progress was going pretty good right up until I got to the Monoliths. I went through four different schemes for these guys (stripping them at one point) before I settled on this one. I think I could have done better if I took some more time on them but honestily I was just looking to get them finished this past week.

    At this point I have some 36 infantry, 12 vehicles and 7 war engines to finish up. We’ll see how much I want to come back to them after Fall In, as I’ve got more Slaanesh Knights and some 6mm American Civil War looking for paint too.

    Why?

    He wanted a list closer to approval/in late stage development.

    I barreled through the last of the Necron infantry I have built this week, finishing up the Pariahs and another six Destroyers. I need to finish converting some Flayed Ones and then pick up some Wraiths.

    I do like, do like indeed.
    I mean it is a shame they are not the glorious Imperial Guard, but you know…   😛

    I really like that red color scheme, too often Necrons just get hit with some dark metal then inked.  Your monoliths look great, that subtle glow is fantastic.

    Thanks guys. I’ll do some more IG at somepoint, Mike.

    I finished up the Nightbringer this week, continuing on with the Necron stuff I have built.

    I finished converting six stands of Flayed Ones this week as well. I cut strips of plasticard into long triangles, glued them together, and then glued them to the Exodus Wars models to give them claws. Definitely one of the fiddleist conversions I’m done. Six more stands to go. 😛

    Nice. I have something similar to do too.

    I wanted to at least paint one thing new for this weekends tournament, I had hoped to finish three of these but only managed the two in my list.

    They look like they could be used for multiple scales.  Good luck at the tourny!
