The slow awakening of my Szarakhan legion [painting blog]

The necropolis awakens! Hail Szarekh!

 

I wasn't planning on starting a Necron army, it was only after the insistence of my daughter that I decided to keep the Necrons of the Indomitus box.

And I 'm glad I did, they are so much fun to paint! Easier than my Blood Angels too!

 

So I shall record here my slow progress in painting my first ever Necrons of the Szarekhan dynasty. 

I chose the Szarekhan colors because of rule of cool, I like how the look (and they are the Silent King's own). And I intend to play them as such.

 

So here are the first to awaken!

Looks great! Is it color shift paint?

 

No, it's the lighting I guess.

The Necron bodies are painted with leadbelcher and runelord brass, then passed over with a bit of agrax earthshade.

The Canopteks have additionally canopteck alloy on their carapaces.

Impressive work.

 

Thank you!

It's just basic painting, white undercoat, a thick (LOL) layer of paint, and Agrax Earthshade.

I actually find Necrons a lot easier to paint than Space Marines.
