The Doomsday/Ghost Ark is a cool kit, both options being very useful on the board, but at £31 and seriously massive once built (much bigger than a Land Raider), I didn't want to be buying up loads of them as I just can't afford that. So, as soon as I cracked open the box on my first Ark, I had to set about making it inter-changeable.

The first of my shiny new Necrons is built and painted, the Annihilation/Command Barge combo. It's a great kit with some lovely details on it, and I really like the Tesla Destructors.
I've built the kit to be able to use it as either of the options that come in the Codex, so the guns aren't glued down, neither on top or underneath.

These need to be talked about, are being argued about on the forums, and FAQ'd as soon as possible because the wording of how they work is so poor and confusing. I will fully admit to making exactly the same mistake that it seems a lot of people are making the first time I read it, and I just know that it is going to lead to a lot of arguments as soon as they end up on the tables. Its all down to the description of how they wound.

I've been doing a lot of experimentation with glowing effects for my Necrons (see here, here and here), and as a little break, I took the time to put together and paint up my Doomwheel for the fledgling Skaven army I will eventually have to play Fantasy.

The final instalment of my Necrons from before the new release, all the special units:
Destroyers, with lots of glowing green effect - leading on from the idea of the Lord having an internal green glow, I wanted to try and make the "exhausts" of the destroyer bodies seem to have an internal glow. I didn't get it completely right, but I'll work on it in future (I've got another 5 in Fairy Power Spray at the moment).

Sadly this poor guys in for a demotion as he moves from commanding an entire force, to leading a mere squad. Still, I really love the model (its grown on me as I've worked on it), and I'm quite happy (although there's still some room for improvement) with my attempt at giving his torso an internal glow.
I need to paint his cape, and perhaps add a little more grey accent colour to him as he's a little bland at the moment. I'm thinking of adding some of those cool circuit patterns that they've used on some of the models from the new codex, and which come as transfers in some of the new kits too - I quite like it.
Next up it'll be the special units I already have, and then I'll be onto the new stuff. I've got a bit to get painted if I want to get to BlogWars2 in December.
C-Q-C always welcome, cheers - Andy

Hello all, back with some Necrons. I won't bore you with why I haven't been blogging in ages, needless to say that I have been doing some hobby. With the launch of the new book I thought I'd join the crowds in getting the picks of my Necrons out there for all to see.
