What's this? A new plog? Oh dear...and it would seem to be a Necron project none the less. Well, I guess I ought to explain myself.
Within my massive collection of bits I happen to posses a few sprues of warriors, a lord or two, and a fair number of scarabs. A long time ago, in a galaxy very familiar to you all, I actually had a small force of simply painted Necrons. That army was traded for bits after I got an itch for another project, but my interest in the Necrons never truly died. So, like the robotic zombies they are, the Necrons have returned to my workshop.
With the release of the new codex (which I do not currently own) there have been a lot of interesting changes in the overall background of this enigmatic elder race. Personally, I really enjoy the new personality of the army and some of the new units are particularly awesome. After seeing the many Necron plogs pop up in such rapid succession, it was hard for me to resist falling in to this new project.
So, what am I making here then? Since I like bullet point lists, I have one here:
-Necron Warriors that aren't so slouchy (repositioned legs primarily)
-Homemade Flayed Ones
-Über custom Necron Lord
-Green stuffed Scarab hordes (hats off to the genius who thought up that one)
-A white marble paint scheme with sources of energy painted in purple
You will notice something unique for me in this plog. That is the fact that I have a paint scheme plan from square one. I have tried painting marble before, and with some tweaks I should be able to pull it off on these guys with relative ease.
So why marble? It ties in to the fluff I am still concocting for these guys. Long story short, these Necrons aren't made of living metal, but a kind of 'living' stone. I will elaborate on this idea further in the next few updates. Really, I just like to go against the grain is all.
I'm really excited to get started on this, even though I have my traitors on the painting slab right now. I have been resisting starting this bit for a while, but temptation is a cruel mistress and she has again prevailed in complicating my personal agenda.
Anyhow, no pics as I am currently on a personal vacation near the Canadian boarder. I am just going to accept that this is probablly going to take over my Warhammer attentions for a while. I promise, the Boogies will still get love
Updates will begin as soon as I return home.
