I'm horrible for completing painting tasks and someone has finally called me on it! At stake is a dinner at one of my favourite japanese restaurants. Complete this BFG fleet before Christmas and I dine at my buddy's expense on sushi goodness! Might as well turn this challenge into my first Project Log and bring some BFG happiness to the P&T forums. :D

The Fleet

12 Dirges <-- Completed! :chrome:
12 Jackals <-- Completed! :chrome:
3 Shrouds <-- In Progress :skull:
6 Scythes
1 Tombship

Some pics of my completed escorts are available in this thread here (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58071)

So you can get a general idea of the colourscheme. Its fairly simple, gold, silver, and glowing, gauss arc spewing, green.

Currently all the ships are assembled and painted, the bases will be a separate matter, I'm intending them to be painted black and then have some nice green necron type iconography denoting squadrons and ship names.

The capital ships have been based with a metal tube in the base and the ships screw onto this via barrel clasp type attachments. The escorts have received rare earth magnets recessed into them and magnets on the bases. All the bases save the tombships have washers glued to them to help keep them from tipping over too easily.

The attached pics pretty much give a summary of the status of things so far.

I'll be keeping an eye on this thread, I do like the necron ships.
