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.
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 best scheme i have ever seen was an orange necron army on LO though i cant remember whos it was
also what where your ideas for the lave necrons sounds interesting
(I played crons like 6 years ago...maybe longer and i was like 12 so it was boring and silver D=)
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!

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.
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.
