I'm a lazy guy, and painting isn't my strong point because I shake, constantly, I have tried the whole bracing myself thing, but nothing really works. So, I need a nice quick way of painting them.
So, what I was thinking I could do was prime the model black (the body together, arms and head still off and do them separately) put the rest of it together completely (atatch the arms and head) then then lightly spray it silver. I'm hoping it will get most of the raised surfaces silverish and leave more of a shadow around the joints and in the ribcage.
Do you think this will work? I'm actually going for a more traditional look to it. It's pretty much that, or I could easily pull off a black and white colour scheme with highlighting on a black undercoat. That shouldn't be to hard, and I know I could pull it off because highlighting is one of my few good points. It would take far more work, but if I did that I'd probably be more willing to do said work, because it's not that hard of work.
You can prime the completly built models black, and then heavily drybrush boltgun metal onto it, then lightly drybrysh/highlight mithrill sliver on.
That should work for a quick and easy colour scheme..
You can find me on Dakka, B&C and Portent. :D

Yea, just do it this way. http://us.games-workshop.com/games/4...tart_paint.htm
Maybe skip certain parts that you find hard.... (Such as eyes, and the center part of his chest..... not sure if you'de find that hard but hey..)
my housemate did a nice one, he primed black and drybrushed heavily with tin bitz and then over that with burnished brass, looks a treat if you want that bronze feel
FOR THE EMPORER!!
couldnt u just spray prime it boltgun???
You could do that. They just give it a quick wash of Black Ink (or thinned Chaos Black) to pick out the ribs/joints/seams of the figure.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I ran into this problem myself. I love the necrons but painting the numbers of warriors you need gets tedious fast. What I did was spray on bronze primer, then seal them with minwax. Sand and flock the bases. On top of that I picked out the eyes in green and did a quick drybrush of boltgun on the gauss blaster but that really isn't required at all. If you seal it the models will look fantastic.
No one expects the Spanish Inquisition.
Heavily drybrushing with boltgun metal would be easier and much less of a hassle than trying your best to lightly spray the metallic on. You have more control over where it ends up. It also probably looks better too.
