This first link shows a picture of a Necron Warrior I converted into a Pariah. This was made with the pieces from 1 Necron Warrior, 1 Scarab, a 4D finish Nail and some Green stuff. I can build 10 of these bad boys for the price of a box of warriors and still have a couple warriors to spare. I originally posted this in the Necron Forum but later found out this was where it should have gone. As the model is now finished I wanted to post the finished product, but thought I should post it here. Here’s my Pariah from a few angles.
The Finished Model:
note: I did notice the gravel I got stuck to his leg. It's been fixed.
This was the first major conversion I’ve done and there are a few refinements I’ll add in future models. Still, I’m pretty happy with the result. If you are interested in seeing how it was done, check out the step by step directions and pics below.
I wanted my Pariah to stand a bit straighter than a warrior. I cut the legs apart at the joints and reglued them so the legs were bent at less of an angle. I had to construct new hip joints and did so by rolling small balls of green stuff.
I decided to use a scarab as the breast plate as demonstrated in the last Whitedwarf. To make it work you have to cut the front legs off the scarab as seen here:
Attach it to the backside of the warrior torso like this:
I hacked part of the standard warrior breast plate off to fill in around the shoulder area. Be careful not to ruin the Necron Symbol we’ll use it later. Check out the cut here and watch your fingers:
Repeat on the other side and put the pieces away for later. Again save the Necron symbol. Carefully cut the excess away from the symbol. Just follow the line that’s already there.
Put the torso on the legs and position to your liking. Again I preferred to have him standing in a more upright position. Next I wanted to bring out some of the Egyptian theme so I constructed a loincloth out of green stuff. Press the Necron Symbol into the top of the loincloth while its still tacky. Check it out here:
I didn’t want my Pariah to look too scrawny so I used Green stuff to beef up the shoulder pads. I did this by rolling out a thin sheet and making an imprint of the existing pad. Then I cut out the impression out and smooth it over the existing pad. Repeat this on the other side. I also wanted his head to sit a little higher so I constructed some extra vertebrea. I did this by rolling out a small tube of green stuff, letting it dry and then carving off three disks of green stuff. I glued them to his neck in a stepped pattern. Glue the head on.
To make the War Scythe you have to get out your modeling knife and start cutting apart the Gauss Flayer. Cut the handle off the Flayer and save the handle, but make sure you save the hand and arm piece. Your going to have to carefully carve the hand off the handle so you can attach it to handle of the War Scythe. Carve the other hand off the stock of the Flayer. You’ll end up cutting the square rod that goes to the barrel of the flayer off. That’s fine. You don’t need it but do save the axe blade. I also cut off the ribbed piece of tubing off the flyer. Save this. Leave the smooth tube connected. For the handle of the Scythe I used a 4D finish nail. Put the halves of the Flayer together and cut out a small opening for the sharp end of the nail to fit into. Glue the loose hand (the one with out the arm attached) just under the flayer pieces. Here’s what it looked like:
Now Glue the arms on in whatever position you want them in. This is tricky because you have to line them up to hold the Scythe. Once your happy with the position glue the Scythe into place . Lastly, roll out a small tube of green stuff. You only need a short piece about the diameter of the nail head. Let it dry. Attach the Axe blade to one end and glue the other to the head of the finish nail/warscythe. To make him look a little different than a warrior I glued the ribbed tube I saved from the flayer to his head.
Now I primed him at this point but then realized I didn’t have any support to attach a blade and the green tube. Now wishing I had salvaged the support rod that held the axe blade, I had to carve a new one. I attached this the business end of the scythe and also attached the barrel. Next I needed a war Scythe blade. I carved this out of a pasticard and glued it to the support I carved. I filled in some areas with green stuff, including the area between the warrior rib pieces and shoulder pads making them one continuous piece.
Here he is before Paint:

Excellent. I can't wait to wipe it off of the tabletop! (Of course, I don't think that I've won any games against you recently, have I?)
The second i saw the first picture, i was like amazed, that looks so much better than the pariah models or so in my own opinion, because I can see more of that in an army, than a pariah that almosts looks nothing close to a necron lmao or so in my opinion (Bro plays necrons, i look at his models, i see this one, truly truly amazed) Fantastic
