    Necron Paint Schemes

    Hello peoples.

    I'm starting to get into necrons a bit and I wanted to see some of the colour schemes people are using.

    I really hate the monotonous silver and black colours that most people seem to have on their necrons. I want to have necrons with flair.

    I was thinking maybe lava necrons or some kind of organic-ish looking necrons.

    Please post your ideas or even your armies.

    Thanks

    I'm not a 'cron player - but there are two at my local GW where I game.

    One uses silver and hawk turquoise, the other a yellow and hawk turqoise scheme, and has a C'Tan that is blazing orange and hawk turquoise...Both striking schemes, although not my cup of tea...

    Hope that helps...

    The funny thing you could do is paint your necrons with pink and purple and model flowers around there arms and legs XD. If you ever get a Deceiver, and I do mean "if", paint it so he looks like he wears make-up! XD XD XD A real dragqueen wrapped in toiletpaper!

    If you paint the lava scheme like you were talking about i am sure you would have a good looking army. Its different then the usual scheme everyone else paint the necrons.

    I would like to do the lava scheme but i'm relatively new to painting and I don't think that I could pull it off. I need more practice.

    Don't let that put you down, have some confidence in yourself and give a test model a shot. You will never know your full potential unless you try.

    I love the idea of those ice/snow Necron, they look amazing i think. It really seems to suit them for some reason.

    Regarding lava, it immediately brought to mind of a kroot colour scheme in the old Tau codex (So many more pretty pictures than the new one. -3- ), well, several actually are kind of fiery, but of course there's none available on a quick google search.

    Anyways, it seems to suggest a red gore for the overall colour (I imagine it was spray painted black beforehand), with bleached bone for the highlights. And if you want a metalic sheen, there's always gloss.

    Well, found a place that sort of has what I was looking at... in the form of a cape. Less subtle highlights though...

    (Mind you, I found red to be a little disagreeable to me when painting with it. It didn't mix well with the water or something, maybe? When I was painting some starter set dwarfs the red didn't flow evenly, so... it might be a more expert colour to work with, or maybe I just did something wrong. :p )

    Quite a ways down there's a few painting tutorials, the one standing out being magma scales (post9). A lot more advanced than just red gore and highlights, so better off saved for characters and special units or something if you're looking at this.
