"Once upon a time an Iron Warriors company decided to begin mining and drilling in a distant planet at far edges of space to initiate weapons manufacture. This however, disturbed a certain C'tan and his minions in their millenia spanning sleep. As punishment, the Star God decided to mock and annihilate the intruders for his own amusement."
My 1500 point Necron force. Completion from the box to the table took 2 weeks while doing 8 hour shifts daily at work. Guess you could call it somesort of speedpainting, since the 28 Warriors and the Lord for example, were done in 1 day. I added some simple conversions with a Possessed Chaos Marine sprue to support the background story, a plaything of The Deceiver, fused from Iron Warriors and Necron servants. Their leader, an abomination half Necron Lord, half a Warsmith. I converted some "living metal" appendages to his Destroyer Body, in addition to some rust and battledamage as also present in the other models. You can ignore the last brainstorm pic, just felt like doing it while listening to Disturbed - Indestructible, haha. =)
You should be able to zoom the images some, but they are partially sized to fit Coolminiornot, and other sites.

I hope you like my army.

I really like this army. You painted them exactly as I would have. I am curious, what colors did you use to paint them. I detect some tin, and well as some golds and purple washes.
Marion: You're not the man I knew ten years ago.
Indiana: It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.
For the last time, there are
NO FEMALE SPACE MARINES!!!!!
Hehe, it's nice to know they appear to have multiple washes to them, but the truth is far simpler. The pure metal finish is simply a silver spraypaint with Liberon Bistrot polyurethane varnish coat ontop of it. After this I applied battledamage and rust and other effects, then a matt varnish.
It's all in the eye of the beholder, like they say. Thanks for your nice comments folks!
My next project will be something more detailed, and more time consuming, probably the upcoming Space Wolves with some Forgeworld additions.
Time for a mini update. I've grinded some more detail into some of the miniatures, and improved the Destroyer bases. Also, the Necron Lord on foot received more paint in form of a new cloak and caution stripes onto his shoulder. I also matt varnished the whole bunch, and took better pics on my new gaming table! Hope you enjoy. Here's a collage, bigger pics updated into the original post.
From idea to execution this is really fantastic. Congratulations on finishing it so quickly and efficiently.
Those are beautiful. The monolith looks top-notch. What's next for these guys?

These look awesome. I love the idea and you've done it complete justice with the amazing painting. Well done.
