Thanks guys!!!... Labor of love these things [smile]

Been crackin' a little, rectifying the mistakes made on the lord (I guess is part of the process) and so far, very happy with the progress... will post pics later on

I don't play Warhammer Ted, but these Necrons are pretty cool.

Yes, they are cool....it's an Arnie-army, and they always come back.
Any of your wounded can re-roll under the "I'll be back" rule...so your opponent thinks they've killed 10 of your Necrons only to see 9 get up and fire back....now that's scary!

Myself, I've never played 40K....I loved Apocalypse (used to take at least 2 days to play)....so a large Army is a must.

Good to see you like them Juan.

You've sparked my love of these models....I have so many to complete.

Thank you [thumb]

Here we go guys...    I think this is much closer to what I had in mind [wink]





Not sure what is the deal with the indoor photo quality, but these look much better in person (Or maybe is modeler's love LOL).

Thanks for reading [thumb]

I had paint problems with the thruster pods so decided to remove the paint and re-doing them,  by mistake, grabbed the lacquer thinner (Realized this right after I had dropped both pieces in the small jar), by the time I was able to grab them they were already soft, so now both have fingerprints edged into the plastic [frown]

Found a guy on eBay that sells bits and pieces and he had them, so now I got stuck for a few days.

Neil?, I know we are not supposed to glue these pods into the sockets, but after doing a fit with the damaged pieces, it seems to me they pop out fairly easy, yes?, also, do you know what is the purpose of the small square brackets at the top of their exhausts?, it makes it look like something is missing there.

Thanks

I found that gluing the exhausts in place is better.

Not sure what brackets you are talking about. The one thing with GW kits is that if nothing shows on the instruction sheet then there is nothing to go there....probably just decoration.

Not to sure if this is the area you are talking about...



The main colour on this is not gold, it's copper with a very thin sepia/chestnut wash/glaze.

...my god this needs a repaint.... [wink]

Thanks Nigel, yes, I'm referring to the small bracket on top of the exhaust you have painted in silver, it makes it look like there is a missing part.

It's a bad snap shot, but I painted it white, as I've used white as a link to form my army...to make them all look like a team.

It is nothing...so use a nice colour...gold, silver..modellers choice.

If you are putting an army together I would suggest picking one colour to unify them.

May I show you another photo of part of my army to show you ?

A whole army I've got!!!, building it may take ages but is the plan (Space permitting).

The livery of choice is the one thing that has kept me from moving along with the chassis, the original idea was to make it in Semi Gloss Duralumimum, but after testing it just looks like cat piss LOL, so I fell back to semi-gloss aluminum but looking at some images online, it looks way too dull...   Also thought about doing White, but then the Necrons would look like taken out from a Star Wars movie.   Right now, I'm planing on Flat Alumimum with metallic black for the ship, a fluorescent Green for the plasma and light gun metal for the weapons.     I'm a car guy, so staying away from Metallic Reds and Blues is been tough!!!


Let's see those pics Nigel!!!... If anything, please post them on the "Current Situation" thread  [thumb]

And then I couldn't resist, so the brilliant idea of adding some detail lines came to my mind...  All of the sudden, the model is looking like the stuff found on the clearance bin at Wal-Mart!!!



But hey!, maybe when the tail assembly is added wont look so bad, right?, so lets prime the thing...  Oh heck, a few hours went by, let's just paint the base coat now that we are at it...



And now that you are "all go -  no quit - speed racer and stuff", lets glue the prow...  Ah, wait, it doesn't look right, unglue it!!!, re-glue it...  Shiznit, is wrong again!!!, unglue & re-glue what is left of it...  Poop, maybe if I raise the panels...  it looks okay, let's add a lot of glue to melt the thing...  No that was not it...  ooops!!! too bad, now go get a replacement from the guy on eBay (AND keep the damaged set so that you don't mess it up again!!!)




Is like kindergarten all over again!!!.

been there, done this same thing. only so many times you can kick yourself before you get cramps in your own leg! you've tackled a big big project and you will do whatever you have to to finish it. "go speed racer, GO!"

It is a complex build when you decide to paint sections seperately. I fell into the same trap, next one I built was a breeze.
You are forever learning new things in this hobby, and you never forget your mistakes. Every modeller can recall a story..."I remember the time when I ..bah,blah... never do that again".
