Hello everyone,

Lazuli Miniatures Studios here with the most insane project we have ever received, 40k points of Necrons. Previously we had painted a 3,000 point Apocalypse army for the customer and he was so happy he had us to do another 40,000 points.


The Team

Head Artist: [So]Rice | -=Lazuli=-
Artists: elotsip, Kobayashi, tpistole
Trainee Artists: sivooo, Lynn, phanda, artie, Kameron, m3ndo, Mandrake

The models:

We started with the 6 Flying Saucers (sorry forgot what they are called!):

Since he wanted us to continue the black and silver theme, we cleverly did two color spray painting:

That is a crap load of models, but 40,000 points? Its hard to see how comes to that much.

So, someone comes along and says "Give me 40K points"..? Wow!!!! I don't want to even think of the basic cost of all those kits (even without the cost of the painting skills). Tthe two-tone painting looks like a really great start, though!

good god... that's a genuinally insane amount of kit. Dare I ask how much the commission has cost the customer?! If people want to spend their money clearly their choice but I've no idea why anyone would have a 40,000 point force!

Considering the obscene amount of models you are going to be painting, it's a good thing you are doing such a basic paintscheme. Are you just basecoating them and calling it a day?

Wash is still wet, but I'm happy with it, takes only about 10 minutes to paint each of them.

This is all I have to say about this.

Also, for 10 minutes each, that Doomscythe looks phenomenal.

Thanks for the replies everyone, I was on vacation last week, but I'm back now!

That is 300+ Necrons Warriors in unassembled form. We are waiting on another 100-200 to arrive and we had already painted around 100 for the client last round.

@progreen10: I have a team of seven working on this project, 5 of them are "trainee" painters and this will be their first project. I can always call in more people if needed :) I'll get a picture of us all tomorrow.

@Tunach: I would like to do that but I don't think the client would like it ^_^

@BeLozey: The finished models will have a lot more color, I have not done any of the green gauss but we will probably have it glowing OSL like.

Also a quick plug for you Zombicide and Sedition Wars fans, just because we have a Tomb World's worth of Necrons doesn't mean we aren't taking other commissions (in fact we have about 2 dozen in house), we are running specials on Exhibition Standard painted sets. There are 5 slots left for Zombicide and 4 left for Sedition Wars. Zombicide will run at $450 and Sedition Wars at $350.

Thanks for looking as always!

Damn. Wish I could afford "trainee artists" to do all my grunt work for me! Health & Safety's a complete bugger when it comes to having employees in my (home-based) studio.

I do love clients with vision, though!

Will all the models be properly based before they're finished-finished?

Another update, ended our 12 hour shift. Finished assembling 196 Necron Warriors and 48 Scarab Swarms. Pretty impressive considering that this is the first time most of the trainees have even seen miniatures. And yes, all the mold lines are gone! Here are some more pictures.

Assembled Figures.

Not pictured are 50 or so Warriors that Kobayashi is working on and many more that we have not received from the client yet.

Thanks again for reading, encouraging words are welcome, we are going to need a lot more encouragement to finish everything!


And one last thing, we are not able to disclose the amount paid for on this commission, it is between the Studio and the client, so please don't ask! We have pricing guides on the website if you would like to do a rough estimate.

Yes, all the models will be based in a grey rock and snow scheme! No one needs to know!

Wrapping up another successful day. Almost all the assembly has been completed. I need to put together 5 Transport ships, 3 Pyramids (Monoliths?), 45ish Tomb Blades, and 30ish-50ish Special Characters and metal figures Kobayashi still has another 50 Necron Warriors, Monolith, 6 Destroyers, 12 Beetle Swarms, and a Commander Figure. I am still waiting on another 50-100 Warriors, Transport Ship, Monolith, and some other things from the client.

@Echunia: We did a lot of work, but school starts next week and the rest of it will be considerably slower, probably another 2 months! Glad more people are picking up our music ;)

Day 5 wrapped up, Kobayashi (William T.) showed up today to help us out a bit, here is the army shot so far. Still missing 6 Ghost Arcs, 30ish Destroyers, 150ish Warriors, 35ish Immortals, 15ish Wraiths, 2 Monoliths, 20ish Flayed Ones, and a ton of heroes.

This number of points in an army is nothing short of mental. I have massive geek envy, but mental never-the-less.

You really should have a few Tomb Stalkers and Acanthrites in the army though. 45K?

very cool - how were the eyes and lights painted on the spyders please?

I am not sure exactly the colors we used but basically paint the circle black, paint 3/4 of it a dark green, 1/2 of it a medium green, and 1/4 of it a light green. Than add a dot of white on the black.

We're nearing completion! In total we have spent: 3 12-hour days and 2 8-hour days, we will need another 12-24 hours to complete it! If we weren't currently in school this project could be done in less than a week.
