Hey all, I just started with the Necrons, and here's what I'm doing...I'm essentially making the Necrons similar to terminators(the movies, not the units)...putting bits of marine armor on the necrons, etc... They're looking interesting so far...
Fluff wise, about all I could come up with is that in an attempt to beat down the gaurd quickly, it was decided the Necrons should attempt an infiltration(I mean after all, in a seal suit, no one's gonna know you're a giant metal robot skeleton). But they got found out early on(somehow...lol) and wisely, all the Necrons that werent wiped out, were retrieved.... This essentially left a good mass of Necrons partially clad in marine armor...a few full suited, etc..
YES I KNOW IT NEEDS WORK!, that's 1 reason for posting up here...
Another reason..is ideas for paint schemes...I dont wanna do something conventional with these....I'll post of up pics of the few I have done within the week if at all possible, thanks in advance for your time and help!
How about painting them chrome? It is very hard but when done well it looks badass. Never seen it on Necron's but I imagine it would look awesome, espically with the terminator theme. You could say they were some of the first Necrons thus had earlier armor or something. Or you could have something about the take space marine armor to give themselves better protection, but it would only be fluff wise.

Necron players are babies!
I know it's only gonna be fluff wise, which is why I refrain from using the work 'equipped' when refrerring to the armor. And I was kinda thinking an old faded copper tone(either dingy brass, or a flat pastel-like green) for the armor, make them seem real ancient like, egyptianish almost...
anyone, help, perhaps? :huh:
Seeing as the necrons are a race who have been lying i a stasis for years, the armour should be chipped and perhaps have som rust in all joints and creeks of the armour. and have you figured out some fluff yet? like this be the original armour of the necrontyr not as sivilised s the latest armour of the new necrons.
as for the termintaor theme. get some of the old necron models and do some works with thoose. they look really big and lumpy so just make tham taller qnd such and they should look great.
hope it helps.
i'm gonna try to get a pic or so tonight or tomorrow of the 4 i've got done so far (need lots more space marine bits! and maybe then you guys can gimme some good ideas...
