Welcome to Librarium Online!
Here is a start to my new Necron Army. I decided to go with a fairly distinctive bone colour for the armour. The coloured plastic rods can be bought from a company called Plastruct in various sizes, but there are tons of eBay shops selling them too.
After a request, I wrote a quick guide to painting these.
Other than the rod swaps, the warriors are standard. I swapped the Warscythe blade on the Lord for the scythe tip from the Warhammer Zombie sprue.
Any tips, comments or criticisms are welcome, fire away.
Look good Ravendove. The look is very creepy, like the anatomy skeleton models in a science classroom. Strong basing as well.
I think adding a red-rod on the end of the Lord's scythe would lengthen it and make it more necronish and less akward.
Look really good, great work.
Those are awesome. I love the color scheme. Seeing all these pics and stuff makes me want to keep buildin
Nice work with the red contrast, do you have a tricked out monolith with a red portal, also lenghten the sythe's handle.

Thanks for all the nice comments! The painting was actually really simple. Undercoat white, two Gryphonne Sepia washes straight out of the pot, paint Bleached Bone over the armour plates and do highlights in very thinned Skull White on the edges.
Alzer and kevin, I think you're both right. The scythe looks a bit small and awkward in his hands and I need to add a 'something' to spice it up a little. I will probably extend the pole a bit, add another handle and possibly add some scroll or rags (like the cloak) hanging off it. I'm not sure yet, we'll see.
I don't have a Monolith built yet, the next batch are going to be another 5 Warriors and some Destroyers, then I might start on the 'Lith!
Great choice of colors. So continues the demise of trash-can-'Crons.

Nice. I really like that. It looks nice, fresh and imposing. Well, I say nice, you know what I mean. The red rods really set the armour off.
