Necrons Painted: Immortals, Warriors & Scarabs oh my!

My rotation of 40k painting continues between Dark Eldar, Black Templar & Necrons.  I wanted to finish up the necrons I started on before I jump back to Dark Eldar.  With the immortals I knew I had to break up some of the metal with a color, otherwise it'd just get way too washed out.  I went with the whole Tomb Kings lock and brought in Hawk Turquoise.  To tone it down, after it was highlighted I put a wash of Gryphonne Sepia. 

The bases need some static grass to break up the sand, and I'll use probably harvest gold from woodland scenics. 

Last night I finished assembling the annhilation barge for Necrons and 14 hellions for the Dark Eldar.  This weekend I'll look around for different conversion inspiration to do the Baron.

Next on the docket, all the crew for my ravagers and venoms!


  1. I really like your choice of colors, very nice!

  2. I've been trying to achive a tarnished copper look for a while now and your's looks great! can you share the steps on how you've done it?

  3. Pushups, I'd be happy to. If you go to the article on the left side (seems to be popular) "Creating a Portable Display Base: Painting (2)" I actually show the step by steps. Here's it in a nutshell.

    - Prime Black
    - Base in Tin Bitz
    - Dry brush Dwarf Bronze
    - Light dry brush Burnished Gold
    - Light dry brush Mithril Silver
    - Healthy watered down wash of Jade Green like at least 7 parts water to 1 part paint.
