hi , i got a really annoying problem , i was looking on the warhammer sites and the book ...
i've come to this conclusion i can't find no painting scheme that fits me .
i like the dark ,rusted, boltgun kinda guy with real glowy rods and eyes
(not to rusty and big surfaces of rust ) . so ... umm send me your ideas and why not a photo , my email is email@example.com

Do you want to use metal colors or not?
If you donâ€™t use them I say paint him dark gray, then you can ad the rust with some small areas of blazed orange. Paint a thin line with black on the lower part of the rust spot and then a light gray at the upper part. This make it looks like a rusty hole in the model.
You can also wash the joints with blazed orange.
So...theres no rusty metal necron paintschemes eh?
Doesn't look to me like theres anything but what you're talking about. Doesn't EVERYbody make thier necron black and metal? Or maybe I'm thinking of the hello kitty color scheme? Hehe
Maybe you could be more specific.
Law of Logical Argument: Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
A good way to paint rust is to give the area (works best on flat surfaces) a good coat of red or red-brown inks, then sprinkle some salt on the ink. The salt will suck up the ink, and stick the salt to the model. Makes really good rust spots.
Really cool paint scheme that I'm doing with my Necron Immortals is black carapace highlighted with scorp green. Soooo hot =D

That sound like a cool IdĂ©e. And the salt will not come of? I have to try this.Originally Posted by DumbparameciuM
Any way I forgot to say that I always use black under the blazed orange, if you donâ€™t you will not have the same result.
Sound cool with scorp green, not like the normal black with drybrush metal color
Srry for the confusing message i'll try and explain it another way .
Its true you goth a lot of metal color schemes, the most popular schemes must be : boltgun then chainmail and highlight with chesnut ink or mithrill silver or soak your model in inks and drybrush with metal colors.
Heres my problem : I want a model (army) that's not so light and containing rust .
this way the rods , eyes ... will be more visible and i'll get a more evil looking guy.
To say it short : a dark evil rusted looking army .
Btw : how do u use inks ???
Well we have already talked about the rust, so I skip that. It sounds to me that you what metal colors. I have two ideas.Originally Posted by waterman182
1. Get the darkest silver from GW (or what ever company you buy your colors from) Dry brush this on in thin layers. Then maybe use some wash black or a dark brown. Highlight the edges with another silver paint that is brighter. Then paint the rust.
2. Use a bronze color drybrush o black the drybrush silver, use a wash one of the brown. Then highlight with silver.
I can say that Iâ€™m not a expert on metal color, I think they are a bit boring to paint with. Any way I think this will work and it shod not that that long to paint a miniature like this.
You could look through the metal guide on GW-US, and modify one to make it darker. Or, for a really rusty look, you could begin with a black undercoat (spray). Paint watered down scorched brown over that. Stipple on orange to make it look rusty. Then lightly drybrush with a metal you like, boltgun metal or tin bitz for example. Should be quick as heck if nothing else
I goth a scheme i like but it's a long one !!! :
-undercoat chaos black
-thoroughly drybrush dark angels green
-drybrush jade green
-drybrush beaten copper
-highlighted drybrush of brazen brass
-drybrush boltgun metal
-applie black ink evenly divided
-applie chestnut ink and water 50/50
I goth the first five steps fron the metal chart
(fourth page the upper right corner)
then to finish the model and to stay traditional i added the boltgun and the inks . :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:
any comments ?
