Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am thinking about putting at least a doom scythe into my necron list, just something for friendly games that won't make my army so similar to other lists and i was wondering about how big should it be? Judging from the picture in the book for the doom scythe, the vehicle should be pretty big because the pilot looks so small compared to it, but them in game it will be shot down before i get a chance to use it.
I was thinking about starting it off with a dark eldar razorwing for the base and frame and then maybe build onto it.
Any ideas for size of it/other units or vehicles i can get parts from to start?
Rumors are there is a second wave of necrons late next month. You may want to wait for that.
Yeah that sucks. I've already made 2 night scythes and a doom scythe.

From the picture, it looks to be about the size of an Eldar Falcon, which may be a good starting point for conversions. Or, just wait until next month ;P

I made mine using the cockpit section of a DE venom. I chose it because it had a short length behind the pilot giving me room for the "spine" looking piece that runs down the centre into the tail. Tesla destructors and "spine" piece from a barge along with the upper body of a necron for the pilot. The wings were made with greenstuff over hard cardboard (should have used plasticard but it was in December and I have my Dad's birthday, my sister's birthday and Christmas/New Years in December so I was broke and building on a budget. A couple little necron bitz here and there and a flying stand and that was it for mine. It was my first real foray into greenstuffing so it could have been better, but from a few feet away on the table, I've had a few people ask me where I got it from, so that always feels nice. Everyone seemed to agree that the size looked about right. I have used it as a nightscythe and a doomscythe and had success with both, though I only used it as a doomscythe once and had a good deepstrike and deathray shot, so the verdict is still out on the doomscythe for me, but as soon as they release the model, I will definiteley get a few nightscythes. Ap(-) or not, tesla destructors have been outstanding for me at destroying light vehicles. I have popped more razors with teslas than I can count and average 6-8 hits everytime. I can throw a handful of wraith dice and not pull any 6s but with the teslas and twin-linked I always seem to pull at least one 6.
To see the size of the scythe I made just click on the link in my sig and watch the necron video. Its in there along with the stalker I made. The custom wraiths in the video has since had the "tails" swapped out for long necron spine type tails from the ark kit. The army has grown by 350 points since the video and some of the stuff has been touched-up and enhanced, but thats the basic colour scheme I went with. Lots of purple against metal and black/green on the vehicles.
When the scythe and stalker are released, I will likely retire the custom-builds but since I made them in early December, I have had some good mileage out of them.

Rules for playing massive tabletop games with star wars miniatures!
I would suggest holding off on the conversion, Atleast until you decide you don't like the models that will be released. It gets costly fast and its disheartening knowing that you put effort, time and money into something only to see a legit one show up on a shelf 2-3 months down the road
