  1. wow great job! I want to steal some of your ideas if possible. How did you make the base for the doom scythe? Did you do the snow with baking soda? If so how did you create the cracks?

  2. @ Matt – Thank you sir!

    @Jones – Steal away! I pulled the idea from the previous edition of the necron book and made it my own. The only issue I have is that it’s not really airbrush-able. Takes a lot of fine tune work. The base I used is a 120mm round I made from a blank from Dragon Forge.You can find the full method on how they were made under Hobby Projects “Rubber & Resin” on the menu bar. The snow is made from baking soda. I think the cracks you mean are made from pine bark.

  3. Hello, I’ve been keeping an eye on your blog for quite sometime and would like to point out that your necrons are some the best I’ve ever seen. I do have a few questions though. I know you mentioned the possibility of making a tutorial video a while back, I was wondering if you’re still thinking of doing that. Also, do you use the same paints that you showed in the painting tutorial for all your necron models? Finally, the black areas in your models (like the big portions of the Ark, and Scythe) are they just the plain Krylon black primer you used, or do you add other layers to the black? Thanks again for sharing all this with us, you really re-ignited my passion for painting models again.

  4. Hi there!

    I just started to get back into the swing of painting my Crons. I haven’t made any current plans on creating a video. That said, I’ve made a few adjustments to my technique that has made life MUCH easier. It would be good for me to break into a digital media. I’ll look into it. I do have a Obelisk that would lend itself nicely to a project like that.

    Paint wise I mostly use the same paints but my application has changed. I’ve found that I can produce the same results with fewer steps. First off I don’t prime with the Krylon spray anymore. I use Vallejo airbrush primer. The Krylon product is excellent and I will always recommend it for a spray primer, but if you are lazy like me and don’t want to be restricted by weather conditions, airbrush is the way to go. In fact I’ve been incorporating my airbrush into my style for several models that I’ve painted recently. it has really cut down on this scheme’s complexity.

    For the large areas of black, the Krylon spray is the black you see. That’s why I love it so much. It coats perfectly, and takes care of 2 steps in the painting process (Priming and Base-coating). I use VMC Black (70950) to clean up my lines as it’s the flattest black I’ve found on the market.

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions and send me some pics! I’d love to see your work.

  5. Awesome, thanks for the answers. I’ve also been looking at learning how to use a paintbrush, but I’ll stick with the spray can for the time being. Also, how did you make the rods for the warriors? I know you mentioned not using the green rods at all, so I was wondering how you did those.

  6. Yeah. I wasn’t a big fan of the plastic rods for my warriors. I converted them from the immortal gauss blasters. I found a tutorial years ago that showed that using a side cutter, you can cut out the gauss tubes out of the immortal gauss blaster and use them as replacement for your warriors. The process is really easy and I had piles of leftover blasters. The really cool part is you can get two gauss tubes from each blaster. I can’t for the life of me find that tutorial I used. I should re-make it and post it here.

  7. Long time lurker for Necrons, recently purchased the Battleforce and Barge boxes and I’m painting them up HEAVILY influenced by your Thokt – Subbing your VGC Magic Blue with VMC Vermillion.

    I’m moving on from my units and into the Heavy Support, I also built the Doomsday and was curious if you had any clearer shots of the Doomsday canon? I can’t decide how much of the stone color I want on it and I think I see a bit on yours but I’m not 100%.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. Badass! Would like to see some images.

    Unfortunately, I repurposed the D-Ark into a G-Ark. I still have the gun and can take some snapshots if you like.

  9. I know this thread is old but these are amazing! Would you mind sharing how you built the Crypteks for the Royal Court? I can see Deathmark heads and Rods of Covenant, are the bodies just converted Praetorian bodies?

  10. What are the rocks that you use on several of your bigger models? The black and blue ones. Also, do you use several scarab units and combine them to have so many on a single base? Since your typical scarab unit comes with four to a base.

  11. Hey there. The flat rocks are hand made. I flattened out some super sculpy (a type of sculpting putty) into a sheet that was around 8 inches wide and 1/4 inches thick. I then mashed a hand sized rock onto the surface for texture. After baking it, I had my own hand made “slate”.

    As for the scarabs, they are cast in resin. I made 4 master bases and molded them. That way I could make as many scarabs as I wanted.

  12. Hello! Back again with yet another question. Do you remember how you painted the gold parts of your overlord/lord and royal court and what paints you used?

  13. Hello. Back again with another question. How did you paint the gold cloaks/links on the necron overlords and royal court and what paints did you use?

  14. I really can’t remember. It don’t even have these paints anymore. From the picture it appears to be a earth-like brown. Beasty Brown – 043 (Vallejo) or Mournfang Brown (GW) should suffice. I would use the Vallejo as it is a flat color. The highlights can be done by adding a golden yellow of some sort. Brand is irrelevant. Hope this was helpful.
