So it seems like a short Hiatus was taken from Warseer by me, but alas I was not ignoring the hobby! Last I was here I was progressing heavily though my IF Heresy army (see sig for links) but took a break to repaint some old Necrons and add in some of the new units that were recently released. I have used these models for 6th Ed trials and they work reasonably well and look pretty enough. They were never going to be a project that took a massive amount of time to paint, but to look good, learn the new rules and get gaming.

So this quick selection of photos (apologies for the quality you see) shows how and where they have gotten to. I need to do a full army shot soon, so will add that in due course.

On to the pics! (some are WIP, some are done etc)

Again sorry for the odd order, but i ripped the pics from various blogs and forums that I had posted in to get the images together!

The force consists of (painted)
Anrakyr
Lord
Court Lord
Command Barge

10 Immortals
40 Warriors

6 Destroyers
9 Scarabs

Doom Scythe
2 Annihilation Barges

Typically I also run (unpainted currently) a Destroyer Lord, 3 Wraiths, 10 Tesla Immortals in the list somewhere too.
The Command Barge is magnetised so I can put in Anrakyr or the Court Lord and use as a normal Overlord or I can mount on their 25mm magnetised bases instead.

Still to paint (in addition to the mentioned bits above) are 2 Monoliths, a 3rd A.Barge, Tomb Blades, 10 Warriors, 10 Triarch Praetorians, a Triarch Stalker, 2 more Court Lords (made from the A.Barge leftovers) and 2 Ghost Arks. That will complete the collection for now, although I am tempted to add 2 Night Scythes as a transport option.

Impressive miniatures! Something very special about them.

However, I'm not a fan of the snow on the bases. It's too grainy and too clustered.

Another example for orange/blue contrast being pure win.

I really like your Lord, the orange glowing bits (his weapon!) and the fresh blue stand out for me. Definitely an impressive force.
The snow is ok for me. :D

Welcome back! Love the new Crons, but I've got to admit that I'm rather surprised to see them. I figured you'd be neck deep in Horus Heresy: Betrayal models.

Looks great! Its nice to see someone else using orange, and yours is gorgeous. I especially like the Doom Scythe.

Great WorK! Love the color scheme.

@all- Thanks folks, glad they meet your approval! Yeah the bases are love or hate I think. I needed something to be different from the dirty silver blue and orange, so snow seemed to work reasonably well. It looks a bit better than the pics give credit for, and the glowey floor crystals infer a melted surround to them.
The blue is a 3 tier airbrush fade and edge highlight
The metals are vallejo air range gunmetal, washed with mig rust oil, and then dry brushed back up again.
The orange is a red base overlapped on to the surrounds on purpose, then blazing orange then orange yellow, then white. Finally a top coat of Tamya clear orange over the top of that. Applied to all weapon types, gauss and tesla plus orbs etc

@ Fable - thanks buddy! The IF are getting some love once more, Spartan WIP in my blog which has been revitalised today.

Wow! That might actually be the best looking Doom Scythe I've ever seen.

Not too sold on the troops but I think thats becasue I can't really make anything out on them but the vehicles are absolutely stunning. Amazing colour combination applies really well.

Happy Painting

I've only got 2 words to say about this plog/thread: "stu" and "nning!"
