Okay, so around November last year the Necron Codex came out. Ever one to add to my collection of unfinished armies, I hopped aboard the "ooh shiny" train and bought a heap, played them in a 500pt tourney at Warhammer World and then they went away in a box for 7 months. 6e comes a-knockin', and suddenly I realise I want to play, but I have nothing to play with, and so as such, until I can make up my mind as to what I am doing with my White Scorpion marines, Necrons are what I am going for.
I finished the 500pts in time for the tourney, but I can only seem to find decent pictures of my Overlord, who incidentally won best painted mini on the day (Jervis Johnson voted for him, yeah ladies), but will get better photos of the rest soon enough.
More recently however, and inspired by SilverTabby's efforts on her sisters, I decided to try something a bit more outrageous conversion wise. I have never been a great fan of the Destroyer Lord, and now with the new background detailing them as outcast maniacs, the model doesn't fit the fluff well at all. Therefore, I have decided on doing my own.
I used the standard destoyer body, but then took the Cairn Wraith from the Vampire Counts range, trimmed back the robes a bit and fitted in the front of a warrior torso. I then took two of the arms from the Lychguard sprue, along with a warscythe and the hand holding the resurrection orb from the Command Barge kit, then trimmed and pinned them to the body. All the joins will be hidden by green stuff sleeves etc. Lastly I took a spine from the lychguard kit and trimmed a little off the underside, before gluing it to the arched back of the Cairn Wraith body to simulate the over arching spine the current destroyer lord has.
Still a crap load of sculpting work to do, but taking my time and working in layers to try and get a decent result, got the tube tool to try out so will put some hanging cables on him, and plenty of rust detailing on the main torso to be done before painting. Like I say, want him to be a forgotten and abandoned maniac, not clean and crisp like the rest of my 'Crons will be.
Anyway, enough text that no-one reads, pix:
