I was wondering how i can show a necron healing, say, a bullet wound? or perhaps have its arm broken off on the ground in a puddle of living metal, slowly solidifying? I've always wanted to model this but my mythril silver puddles just looked like a sucked at painting...
Necron will stand for eternity.Their race has survived aeons by trading their very souls for metal bodies. Now, they will live on through eternity and will vanquish all life from our universe.For they are Necron. Flesh is weak. The machine will rise!
I would use Hot-glue.... put in on the base and strecth it to attatch to its arm... looks good, trust me.... works for that liquidy look...
Drill out holes in the model here and there and then fill them with Green Stuff, sculpted so that it looks like that the metal has been damaged and is "healing" back into place.
Try thinking of how the metal guy in the terminator films heals up.
Just add lots of thick glue and greenstuff to give the impression of damage.

I WAS IN THE IMPERIAL (Norwegian) GUARD!
The new 40k rulebook has a cool pic of a warrior emerging from rubble and debris. Something similar could be done.
This month's White Dwarf (Cover art/story is the new SM codex) has tips on bullet holes and battle damage (or at least the Aust/NZ edition does). For shallow holes just drill and use a small amount of plastic glue to soften the edges before pushing them outwards to form the bullet's impact crater. Larger holes you may need to greenstuff the edges of the hole.
I like Vampiric_Drake8's idea but I'd prefer to just take a lighter to whatever part you want melted and stretched. Not too close though, you don't want to ignite/scorch the plastic.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
for shallow bullet holes, i twist the modelling knife into the model at about a 25-30 degree angle, then spin it around to make the hole.
paint the entire hole black, then go over and paint the outer edge of the bullet hole green, or any other color for that fact.
looks like its "healing" plus you dont need any glue or greenstuff.
You could just have one lying on the floor, with a pool of PVA in a rough "leg shape" as it comes back to life, and looking MAJORLY *****ed off.
The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

I don't think necrons can really have a more "macabe" expression... they already look pretty *****ed off to me....You could just have one lying on the floor, with a pool of PVA in a rough "leg shape" as it comes back to life, and looking MAJORLY *****ed off.
Oh and CBrate.... tried the lighter thing for myself... worked good... until the leg was scorched... so i just modelled him to be walkin off without a leg.... (it was falling off and melting bak into place).... I'll try to post some pics later....
The Hotglue would work the best IMO... it easy to mould.... and it can be painted completely seperate to give it that living metal feel your looking for...
Peace Out! ^_^
