Here are the pics from my first battle with with my Necron army against Dennis’ Dark Eldar army. For a good turn by turn accounting of the match (I believe they are referred to as battle reports) I suggest you head over to Dennis’ blog and read Night with Necrons.
So as some of you may know, I’ve gotten into playing Warhammer 40k. The army I chose I think really captures my inner cheeseball nature. No, not orks, I’m playing Necrons. My friends sold me on the army with two words, “zombie robots.” I’ve got a game under my belt with them, they’re assembled, but they’re still that games workshop plastic gray.
Looking around at the different color schemes that people have been painting their necrons, I’ve decided that the drybrush silver on black had been done to death, so again, befitting my nature as a cheeseball, I’ve decided on a color scheme for my necron army: Sunshine!
I would like to point out that this is, in fact, the first mini I’ve ever primed. I’m using that as an excuse if this looks like crap to anyone who’s been doing this for longer than a week. I’m going to bring these down to paint night at the FLGS and ask the people who know what they’re doing if this looks decent and if not what I’m going to need to do differently. If everything looks alright then I’m going to prime the rest and start doing in with some bright orange and florescent green.
The guys at paint night, being all competent and stuff.
Below are the rest of the necron images I took for this post, including a picture of the saddest destroyer.
WDR and Slacker are currently helping me figure out what I currently have as far as Necrons go and what I’m going to need to put together a 1500 point army. Fun times will soon be had.
