As I'm sure everyone and their wives know, the Necron are about to grace us with their presence as I must say I'm completely, utterly, 100% sold. So much so that I'm going to take the plunge and make Necron my second personal army after my Serpent Guard........only after I've sold off the Grey Knights though so I need to get cracking that whip and self flagellate myself into overdrive.
In preparation for the arrival of the new amazing miniatures I delved into the darkest depths of my bitz box to find a selection of Necrons as shown below:
I've had these chappies for probably over a decade now. Having never really been taken with the design of the standard warrior and how they do not reflect the sheer awesomeness of the artwork portrayed in the codex I thought it might be interesting to undertake a small project and see if I could convert this humble miniature into something like the following?:
I'm confident that with some cuts here or there, a little bit of plasticard, a heavy application of Chiaroscuro painting technique and some of my latest top secret medium I will be able to produce something similar to the above? I can't promise that all these minis will survive the surgery but trial and error has never been the most efficient of proccesss now has it! :O)
More to come,
