Build Pictures

Okay so this is the first set of Build pictures. I havn't taken any new pics in a while but these give the basic idea of what I am trying paint wise. The picuters were taken on my LG Shine phone camera so I apologize in advance about the quality.

First is the standard warrior box, 24 warriors, 6 Scarab platforms. This pic is about half a box.
Next is of my bitz, I always use to take everything off the sprue, glue, then paint. Little did I know that I would end up tearing everything apart.

So first I assembled the Legs,

Here is everything layed out, and if you look at my scarabs, yes I didn't realize that you only needed 3 per base, so I will be going back and removing one scarab from each and building new platforms for larger games.

Then I put them all together, (they arn't painted yet but my camera seemd to put a strange green wash on the ones on the right.)
I decided to paint just four first, to see what methods I would use. I primed all the models white then I used the Asurmen Blue wash from citadel paints first along with a pure black for the guns.
Thats when I realized what a pain in the ass it would be to paint with the arms and guns in place, as well as painting off the sprue. My general design requires alot more detail (yeah right) than what I use to paint. So I ripped all the gun/arms off, which means it was a pain in the ass to reassemble.
I am using Six different colors on the models, I will take a picture of the paints to show my color choice.

And thats the first set of pictures. I will post more soon, I currently have 10 immortals and a necron lord on the build table, as well as being almost finished with the first 24 warriors (just need rods put in place.)

Welcome to the ++FTW++ Blogger Group, its always good to see new members starting new armies.

It looks like you've gotten a good solid start to your army, I didn't realise that the Necron Warrior box was such good value for money.

Looking good so far. Batch building and painting is the way to go.

Neither Did I, 24 warriors and 6 Scarab platforms, then adding in the battle force which has 28 warriors and 8 Scarab platforms, I have 52 warriors and 14 scarabs, plus I only need 3 scarabs per platform and each comes iwth 4 so I could make about 4 more with extra platforms giving me 18. Not to bad a value indeed.

Truly, I just wish I had taken the time to realize this before hand, but on the bright side, I found out before I put together the complete army.

Oh no, more foul xenos! Well, we can't all be Imperial, where would be fun be in that!

Welcome to the blog community. I don't know much about Necrons, so I expect I may be able to learn some here. Look forward to seeing more!
