We'll, I've been passing comments on peoples painting for a while now, so I thought it was time to get something painted myself. I've been building up a large Guard force, but before I start the mammoth task of painting it all, I thought I would get myself a small Necron force together.
I havenít painted anything in about 4 years, and even then, I was never any good. Painting consisted of dunking a model in a pot of paint, then leaving it to dry...
Anyway, I've done a few models so far, so thought I would put them up for you all to see! C&C very much welcome, anything that could help me in the future. I'm not aiming for Golden Daemon standard, far from it, just something thatís good enough to play with!
i think those look really great.
Very even coats and nice color choice. I think for someone who "doesn't paint very well" you painted great! Keep up the good work and be sure to post some of those Guard as they come up.

they look very clean. Nice scheme but I cant tell if its light blue or white though?
very nice anyway.
WIP tau project coming soon.
I love how clean they look, even into the vents on the Destroyer.
Are you planning on shading into the metals at all? To me, the metal looks a bit muted (though that may be what you were shooting for).
Overall, great work!

For the metals, I based them with Chaos Black, and then just highlighted over the top with Codex Grey. Very simple, but personally, I think it looks really good. It takes me a good day to do a model as it is, so I havn't done anything more to the metals for that reason really!
Hey, I really like the scheme. The white looks really clean and crisp, great contrast with the metal. Are you planning to shade the metal some? With perhaps a watered down brown wash and some lighter silver highlights it would make the white pop out a bit more.
I think they look great, it's a nice contrasting scheme and in fact, I think the lack of actual metal paint makes them look as if they're made out of some sort of 40k millenium version of ceramic material, which is actually rather cool. I agree about the need for shading on the grey areas though as even if a simplistic method was used it would make a great difference. One area that really stands out as needing it is the Wraith's spine, I think it'd look great with a darker colour inbetween the vertebrae, and that would be easy to do =).
Nice and simple looking, but incredibly impressive work.
That is definitely going to stand out on a table.

I really love the white scheme. How long did it take you to get the white to look that smooth?

Beautiful crons my man, very beautiful. I must moved back from Wichita, and all the players there used this spray paint that coats the model metalic, some in copper and others in silver and gold, but it is nice to see crons that are given the time they deserve.
If i may give you a tip on distinguising joints and what not, this is what i do. I use a paint pen and use it to trace in the recesses. It works for me and is good to get in those hard to reach areas. Hope this helps at all if you wish to use it.
