HPC 2016 - Goraim - Novokh Dynasty Necrons

Postby Goraim » Thu Feb 11, 2016 11:37 pm

This is my first HPC. I haven’t worked on a fig in over ten years. So I decided to build an army from the ground up. I am hoping after I am done I can get out at attempt a tournament. I am not really a competitive player but I love the game and the art. That said I have a lot of room for improvement with my painting and assembly skills, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

My Master List of what I want to accomplish this year.

Here is my first set of Warriors. This is my idea for the color scheme.

I really like the Silver over red, but getting a good base coat that will hold paint well has been a challenge. I have had to switch primer, I am trying the Army Painter "dragon red" I think is the name of the color, I will find out how that works with the ghost ark.

Past that I wanted a Red clay / scrub land base I think I am satisfied with what I have come up with.

I really like the silver and red look, especially with the red bases and tufts of grass.

Even after not painting for that long, it comes back quick.

Thank you, I had a lot of help from my hobby mentor CapnPetey. (viewtopic.php?f=8&t=8657#p113059) I have to give the shout out.

We have been pestering each other to keep on task with the HPC. Is good to have such a lively community to help keep you motivated.

I'm a big fan of doing slightly unusual color schemes. Never seen red Necrons before and I like them! Looking forward to seeing the army develop.

Finally got this Ghost Ark done. This is the largest model I have ever assembled and painted. I feel this will be a nice piece for the army to fit around and is a little better showing of the over all color scheme.

Cool color scheme. Don't usually see red on the deadheads.

I was reading through the book saw red Necrons and I could not help myself. Now I just need to get a bunch of flayed ones. I think those will look sweet with the red and be super fluffy.
