Jerre - Chi'quita dynasty

Post by Jerre » Sun Dec 22, 2013 9:27 am

I tried to resist starting a new army but gave in. And with the HPC starting anew, I am doubly motivated to get some paint on models :)

Unfortunately the army I have in mind is not suited for zone mortalis as it will have lots of flyers and skimmers :(

The paint scheme concept for the army is yellow necrons (bananacrons) with a jungle theme. The moist environment has made the damage to their armour (both from damage and from traveling through a jungle) start to rust.

I found some pictures online of this kind of paint scheme and borrowed heavily from that. I want to use the new army to try out some weathering techniques like hairspray and salt, sponging, pigments, ... and maybe even some OSL.

Before going all out on the army, I tried this out on test models.

And the results are ...

Thoughts and comments are much appreciated!

Awesome. This is the same paint concept I am using for my Necrons speed paint project. You've given me some ideas.

I really like that colour scheme, very original and the jungle themed basing compliments it nicely.

Can't wait for more! :)

I really like it!
I was also contemplating on a yellow Necron force. Its always good to see them in a scheme other then dark silver.

If you're looking for cheap Harbinger of Despair models, check out the Bones Grave Wraith model (http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.p ... naponatom/). You can't really go wrong for $3..
