Necron 1250 COC army complete

Below is the completed army for the 1250 Great Escape Games- Contest of Champions, for Sat Jan 19th 2013. In past years they had some strict Comp rules, and this list was built with those comp rules in mind. Just recently they announced that they would not be using the comp rules. Too late now! It's all painted. In the next few weeks, I'll be going over the paint for the individual units. Until then, good luck at the COC.

Dwarf Lord - Non Metallic Metal

Reading the War of Vengeance is filling me with Dwarf pride and got me wanting to bust out the bearded ones and lay down a little paint. I've been taking a color theory class, so I decided to try out a non metallic metal technique we learned. I think he came out pretty decent. It's not something I would do army wide, but it looks very striking for a lord or hero. I would love to hear what you all think or how others have achieved the effect.

Non Metallic Silver - is a mix of scorched brown, black and white, with more white added to highlight. .
Non Metallic Gold - is Snakebite leather and white with more white added to highlight.
I glazed the runes with Gulliman Blue.
Color Theory - the model is painted in a Split complimentary #1 color harmony.

Noise Marines "LOUD" color scheme



I'm going in a completely new and fabulous direction for the boys in pink. Kick! Pop! Pow!


New codex = New color scheme! With the old codex I had this boring kind of drab Bone color going on, as shown below.
(So muted.... like a 70's sitcom)






(base by Secret Weapon Miniatures)

finalized necron paint

I've been going back and forth between color ideas. Hopefully this will be the final scheme. 

 You may notice the overloard's staff is a bit shorter. The thing broke on me 3 times and I had to keep gluing/pining it back together. Thank you finecast.

Cosmic Norse Super Gods!

Ever since I was a kid, Thor has always been my favorite super hero. It goes hand in hand that I've had an interest in norse mythology since as far back as I can remember too. I love what Marvel has done with these myths and how they have turned them into alien beings that came to our planet and were worshiped as Gods. It's just damn cool to me. And as crazy / cool as it sounds, in a way it even seems plausible to me. My wife thinks I'm crazy when I tell her this theory, but I enjoy it nevertheless.  Many ancient cultures worshiped not just one god but a pantheon of gods, all with similar Diety's.  There are ancient wonders all over the planet that could be evidence of such visits. It seems reasonable that if a star fareing race of people came to ancient earth primitive people would worship these beings as Gods. Sounds good to me at least. If it did happen, why did they leave? Where did they go? When will they come back? Until then, I wrote a song about it. Enjoy.

New Necron Color Scheme

I've been trying out a few things on my necrons, and have finally (I think) come to a color scheme that I like.

Here's some test minis. Any comments/crits are welcome. Thanks!
 reds & yellows are all new GW paints.
