I posted this this as well in the painting forum, but wanted to make it available to a more specific necron crowd.
I recently completed a Necron Pylon from Forge World. Your comments are appriciated.
My magnitized base to weapon. It secures the crescent to the base and allows it to spin. The crescent slides along the bottom mount to allow for differet angles of elevation for the weapon.
The Crystal holding rods were bent alla Forge World style. This is what i used to reform them back into the proper shape. Ive tried using hot water twice before on other projects like they state but I've ended up breaking both pieces. This worked flawlessly, just watch the heat.!!
I left the Crystal out because I was going to airbrush the entire thing.
And now the finished work.!!
This was done with a base of light gold/bronze, I then went back over it with darker shades of bronze, with finaly the glyphs done by hand at the end. I think it turned out pretty well for only my third model i've ever airbrushed.

It is genuinly beautiful.

That is a seriously nice paint job. Well done, that man.

If thats really your third ever airbrush its even more impressive. Nice work.

I have one of those for some time now. After cutting, cleaning up and pinning the model I was left with some questions.
I did not glue the base to the rotating middle part and just bought some large magnets as you did. I was wondering what to do with the gun itself, either glue it in place or magnetize it also... Did you glue it to the half-circle spine? It seems easier to transport in separate pieces.
I like the color scheme you used, it is well executed. Maybe finish the model with matte varnish to get rid of the shine?
ps I did also use the hot-water method to re-bend some components without much success. The smaller deviations were corrected, but the nasty ones remained bend. I just stuck the part under my halogen spot to heat it up, which seems a bit more safe then flames...
