Thoughts on the painting of, and playing with, toy soldiers.

Kitbashed Epic-scale Necron Skimmer Tank

Years and years ago, someone on the Tactical Command forum posted a photo of a prototype Necron tank, kitbashed from leftover parts from the Lychguard/Triarch Praetorian box. When I saw it, I immediately wanted to build some of my own, but never had access to the parts. But when I bought two boxes of Praetorians for my 40K army, I knew that I’d finally get a chance.

More photos after the jump!

The models after assembly

They are primed black. I'd normally use my airbrush but used a spray this time as I was in a rush.

The models are drybrushed with Tin Bitz.

They're then drybrushed with a 50/50 mix of Army Painter Weapon Bronze and Vallejo Brass. I originally painted my Necrons using GW Brazen Brass, so had to mix up something as close as I could make it.

They're then drybrushed again with pure Vallejo Brass.

Finally, the details are painted and washed, and the base is textured using textured paint and flock to match the rest of the army.

I am using these models in a game tomorrow.  They will be proxying for Doomsday Arks. I’ll post a battle report after the game.

    • Thanks for reminding me! Can I take this opportunity to tell you about how I can help you set up an online store for Gregster’s Lab? 🙂
