Hey,

I wouldn't say you were rubbish at all. Perhaps thin your paints slightly as the green looks quite thick in places. another tip would be to get hold of the GW washes. use the appropriate wash and it will certainly improve the gradient of things! use the black on metal and it'll look lovely. I always find that basing models makes them look better than they actually are, especially when ur whole army is done similarly.

keep it up

its been awhile since I updated this. so imma do so now, I have not got around to painting so I thought I would show you how im coming along with my armys.

Nercon warriors,

all undercoated, im waiting for my boltgun metal paint to arrive before I put the rods in.

Necron lord,

Slightly blurr'ed picture. and yes I put the rod in...I badly wanted to see him all made up.

Necron destoryers,

again I made the mistake of putting the rods in, however should be easy to paint around them.

My converted Nercon warrior,

I wanted my warriors to have like a general looking dude in the unit,
so I converted this guy.

My ogres 1,
