Necron Wraith Conversions



I picked up some Necrons a while back in a trade and finally got around to putting in work on them. There are a lot of conversions out there but none I really liked so I'm putting my hat in the ring of wraith conversions on the net.


 


The idea was to be simple and made with bits I had just laying around.  Its a mix of what is in the book and 'squids' from The Matrix (with the greatest bestest most awesome actor ever Keanu Reeves...he's so good at acting, all other actors should just quit).


The wire is 16 gauge electric fence wire that I had from when I was in high school and wanted to make chain mail.  That adventure nearly cost me an eye.  Luckily this one was a lot simpler and much less dangerous.


Below are the bits used.  The only thing not pictured is the back shoulders of the destroyer body that is glued above the "eye" of the finished models.   The bits are the cod piece from praetorians, 2 spines from the ghost ark, a bit from the doomsday cannon, the spine of a praetorian and the back bit of a praetorian.   All of these bits are easily extras just from putting stuff together. 

The arms are made from plasticard.  I could have taken more time making them look better but I imagine and box set will be out for them and I'll shelf these in memory of a pretty cool and easy kit bash.

  1. Keanu is one of the most under rated actors ever and I am sure he would be proud of your wraith conversions.

  2. He would just fire an EMP at them. Too bad the Mars lost the technology of the EMP, otherwise necrons would be a dumb army.

  4. I like them a lot and I am glad you are making them for me, lol. In all seriousness, I am really interested to see what you do with them paint wise. A glass display style head has a ton of potential.
