Hi there! After an unfortunate run in with a defective citadel spray gun, I'm looking for new ways to paint my 3000pt Necron army. Untill now I've done my 'Crons with boltgun metal, followed by black and brown washes. After 20 models of doing this by hand however, my eyes have fallen out of my head (good thing I can touch type!). Since the Citadel spray gun seems completely unable to deal with metalics (or propelant...) it seems my options are rather limmited when it comes to painting the rest of my army, without setting eyes on a dreaded paintbrush ever again (pun intended).
Fortunately, I stumbled across army painter! (thearmypainter.com). I plan to use their Plate Mail Metal Primer and Dark Shade to paint my 'Crons via dipping. This will yeild lightning fast results, and whilst I am 100% sure this approach will work beautifully, what I want to know is if the models done this way will match my current minis:
From those guys who have used the Army Painter products before, please tell me, if I use this technique will the new models blend in with my current ones, or will I have to rip the rods outta my current crons (theres only 20 of them) and start afresh? Just want some input.
Cheers in adv.

It will not match. The Citadel washes have a much more subtle effect than the Army Painter, and you'll wind up with models much darker in the recesses and much lighter on the edges. You know an airbrush (and by extension the Citadel spraything) can be used to apply washes, right?
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
My previous post (that has been since deleted) was in poor taste. Apologies all around. Best of luck on your painting project.
