Dear all,Originally Posted by Fabricator General Mike
some of you know, but many of you don't.
I honestly believe that GW have made fundamental errors with the fluff of necrons. They only have a flicker of a soul in the 'spiritual' sense.. but.. when you look at them, you have to realise that they are full of soul in a James Brown sense.
So.. this thread will be dedicated to how necrons SHOULD look, and how they should act. I'm sure when you see the pictures, you'll realise that this is the necron's true state.
They aren't out to harvest the living or nonsense like that. They're just angry because a lascannon hit has jolted the monolith and scratched their last remaining copy of Earth Wind and Fire's Boogie Wonderland. After they've finished pasting who ever it is that's disturbed them, they'll get back into the monolith and start break dancing and stuff again.
Anyway.. here are some initial pictures:
Necrons according to GW:
Necrons with quiffs:
Necrons with dreadlocks:
I've decided on a colour scheme.. it'll mainly be gold with blue shoulder pads.
I'm wondering about how to approach the afros and hair and stuff.
I'm gonna do some necrons with mohawks and stuff too - funk is relative to the individual.
As the project grows, I'll include pariahs and destroyers and stuff.
these videos should get you in the right mood/frame of mind:

This is awesome, can't wait to see more pics!
Talk about a funkified army! You oughta find a way to attach some "bling" to them. This may be more rap than funk, but I can't help but be reminded of the clock around the neck on the chain, a la Flava Flav. Man, those were the days! Public Enemy Number One!
"Clear da way for da ess, da ESS-ONE-DUBBA-YEW!!!"
Don't mind me. I have zero street cred. Just fondly remembering one of the few rap albums I was ever really into, back in the day.
Heh. Breakdancing necrons. Now THAT would be a cool modeling project, complete with high-top sneakers and portable radio. :rofl
Aye.. cool. Thanks for the comments and support guys! nice to know i'm not alone.
I have some ideas bubbling away for the destroyers.. there's gonna be a LOT of people that I have to thank for this! So many people have contributed.
I'm wondering what should be done with scarabs?
Oh this is just great! I have to rep you for doing that!
In all seriousness...
I can't... that is an impossible sentence...

/bow I like all the ideas but for some reason I cant stop staring at the dreadlock necron its really cool and I cant wait to see it painted. and yes a flava flav necron would be awesome, I do have some street cred but I lost most of it when I started playing DnD and warhammer >.< 8Y
HaHa sweet K! Now, it may be a lot of work, maybe just do it for a lord or something, but those Crons look like they would be more suited to holding Guitars, not flayers... see where im going with this lol.
With the hunched pose, the dread Cron definitely looks like he could be in a metal band, and the others could all have suitable looking guitars. So if you fel up to it, convert the main bit of the gun into the body of a guitar with the gauss rods still attatched for the neck of the guitar.
(Ever seen the Darkness video where they shoot lazers/lightning from their guitars?) lol. Anyway just another random idea, ill stop rambling now.
Great work yet again K.
...Hmm, i have seen someone put a speaker in a lith... Air guitar music playing... Ok now ill stop
I found one thing you're missing! *Gasp!* Where are the fro picks? You can't keep 'em fluffy like they are supposed to be after a night of 'dancing', if you know what I mean.
Liking the guitar idea. A Lot. that's great.
I think the immortals will be punks.
Also.. for scarabs.. i'm thinking that they'll be pushing a disco ball along like dung beatles.. except cleaner :p
