When it came to deciding on a color scheme for my Necron Army, I thought I'd do something a little unusual. Most armys use a single scheme for the entire army, I wanted something that would stand out, and so I am giving each troop type a seperate identifying color. What will unite the army is the placement of the ID colors, and the detailing
I only have examples of two units so far, I'm working on the rest, but the basic necron warrior is identified by dark red plates on the shoulders, lower arms, thighs and heart plate like so
The Tomb Spyder is slightly different however, it doesn't have any components that really resemble the Warrior to duplicate the scheme, so instead an alternative had to be designed, that would still closely resemble the Warrior scheme. The Tomb Spyder's ID color is a simple graveyard earth brown
For the remainder of the army, the ID colors are as follows
Necron Lord - Gold
Flayed Ones - Flesh (obviously)
Immortals - Purple
Pariahs - White
Destroyers - Gray
Scarabs - Bronze
Heavy Destroyers - Black
Wraiths - Light Blue
Monolith - I was going to try for an oily sheen
I'll post additional examples as I get them painted
Your warrior is really great.
The spyder is a little too flat. Maybe you'd want to give it a few highlights (perhpas bestial-snakebite leather-graveward brown- graveyard mixed w/ skull bone).
Also, while you idea is good, be careful not to lose the overall visual identity of your army. You still need one or 2 colors to link your squads together and insure unity of colors.
Wow, did you invade my mind and channel my ideas into your own? I was thinking about that very same idea! I guess great minds think alike.
Anyway I think your warrior and tomb spyders look great. The red matches quite well with the metallic. The brown, a little less so, but it still looks pretty darn good. Thumbs up to you!
i think the brown on the tomb spyder looks very good, i also like your idea, the necron warrior looks very good, i like the contrast on both between the metal colour and the more ceramic colour
we're not running, we're attacking in another direction!

I said I'd add more unit examples, this is a standard Destroyer, the ID color is Shadow Grey, which is all that looked half decent out of the standard greys
even though it's more of a blue, the other greys looked really weak against the drybrushed boltgun
personally I love the look, but I should since I painted it
oh, and why doesn't it say anywhere, that you have to bend the gauss cannon a bit to get the damned green rods in :mad: :rolleyes: they don't just slide in easy ya know, I came [____] this far from trimming the ends so it would fit :eek: before I thought to try bending the damned thing
All of those examples look really good, with neat clean colours and a well blended look. Great Job. (Y)
