*Bzzt-Click-Click!* to you, most sublime robot Overlords.
Perfection is you, you are perfection!
I present to you the following, for your inspection, and await your judgment:
The humble necron warrior is both easy and fun to convert, but there is not much that can easily be done with a chunk of metal like the lord. On the other hand, one necron looks pretty much like any other, so without further ado here is my converted Necron Lord!
(Erhm... See attached images. The last one has lost the arm and staff because I dropped the thing off the table and hasn't got around to glue it back on. And if someone can point me to where I can learn how to post images properly I would be most grateful.)
The conversion is pretty simple but fiddly. Cutting up and repositioning the legs can be a bother. Greenstuffing the cape did a lot to give the model that feel of a necron lord. I sculpted a Dawn of War-like mask because the head needed something extra.
The necklace/phylactery was made by making an impression of the chest mark in green stuff, letting it set and cutting out the shape with a knife. I made the staff (loosely) based on the images in the codex.
When it came to the spine-thingy I didn't know what to do and briefly considered sculpting long spikes like in DoW but then I found the perfect solution in my bitsbox!
I will give rep to the first one who can tell me what I used (or beg someone else to, since as a junior member I would have as much effect as a styrofoam axe).
Anyway, there it is. C&C welcomed.
WAY cool! Me likey! Only nit: You've got fingerprints in the green stuff on his cloak
Otherwise, great conversion! Very well done!
Great job! I really like the first lord. It has a cool pose and the staff is nice.
Thanks Guys! It's amazing where a sudden strange fancy can take you. In fact, that's how I started with the whole mini modelling thing (more on that later perhaps )
Um, Ryan, it's only the one lord...
Heh, I didn't have any plasticard so I made the blades on the staff by cutting up an old credit card!
Yes, fingerprints...sorry, Canew. Will try better next time.
Actually, after the undercoat it's not that visible, I might be able to hide it with a little more paint.
Oh btw, the base is cork that I found around the university (student life does have some perks)
I really like it! It's certainly better than the pain-in-the-arse GW Necron Lord!
Your Green Stuff skills are pretty ace!
Did you kill those necron lords then?
Looks good to me, although I agree about the fingerprints on the cloak looking a little strange but that shouldn't be too hard to fix. Got any ideas for a paint scheme?
Also for some reason, the first pic makes me look like he's dancing .
Sorry, Seasonreaper, I don't get it
The last picture shows the basecoats. I'm going with a black body, silver joints and gold details/spine, because this fits with the rest of my 'crons (yeah, lazy scheme but what the heck). The cloak and fabric will be grey/white for contrast.
Unfortunately, lord and warriors are giving me the stinkeye from the back of my desk while I'm doing up some woodelves. Damm meatbags! Should vaporize them all!
*Quick Youtube search*: LOL! That would be so awesome! He looks less creepy in that clip than he does now in real life!
HOW DARE YOU! i was doing the same thing for a freind of mine! no fair. anyways you probly did a better job than i could do seeing as how my GSing skills are limited to filling gaps.
FOR PIE AND THE IMPERIUM! (in that order)
