I have been trying to come up with a quick way to paint my new Necron transports. My problems is that I am not using the black/green pattern, but rather have metallic bodies with orange panels (shoulder pads or jetbike platform covers). Like so:
I was thinking that I could do a combination of silver “internal” parts, black panels with orange highlights (dry brush mostly), and some extra details on the controlling Necrons as a last step… So really the old and tested color scheme, except the highlights would be orange on black, versus green on black… I want to avoid having to paint all those ribs, shield panels and large area with orange... Necrons are my “fun” army and I do not want to spend on them as much as on my SOBs or Marines…
So, has anyone tried to highlight black with orange color is the main question here?!? Anyone has seen a model like that?
Guy at my LGS did a test Termagaunt with this concept. Looked really cool. Kinda Tron-esque.
Proof of Concept on the Orange-on-Black Necrons.
This was a quick job, so I know there are some things that are not super high quality, but all the work was done in a week, so not bad at all. Overall I am happy with how they turned out. I do not think that I would change anything. Of course, there is more detail work that could be done, or details that could be brought out, but Necrons are my "for fun" army so I am keeping these fairly simple. No on to playing them on the tabletop
Wow man, that's a cool looking color scheme. Nicely painted too.
I am steel and I am doom.
I march for Macragge, AND I SHALL KNOW NO FEAR!
That's a great looking scheme you got there. I do think the reddish-orange edges look pretty slick. Keep it up.
I really like the paint scheme you've got going on here. I've done mine very similar, but using Space Wolves grey and a white highlight to give them a 'ceramic' look.
I'd love to see some more photos of them from a few different angles if you've got any!
Really nice Necrons!
I have some detailed shots of the Barges under the Modelling section, but nothing more beyond that - sorry!
Whenever they come out with Blades or Stalker models I will paint a bit of those though, so there is more to come from me
