Yellow Necron Scythe: Sightings!
Old School here and with a local tourney coming up, I have decided to bring a fully painted Necron army. The list call for two scythes and since I had none of mine painted, the time had come to baste these croissants in delicious yellow paint! Let's take a look:
Basically, I let the shapes on the model pick where my paint would go and I just applied the same principles and techniques here as I have on the rest of the Yellow Necrons.
I also had a pretty sweet bit that I had been holding onto for some time that found its home here! Yes, we kill titans, Eldar, what's up? In all seriousness though, Once I get some time, I plan to search some cosmic serpent designs and freehand the head a little.
Overall, I am happy that the paint scheme translated to this size. I felt that the monolith pushed it to it's limit and I was worried about the fliers, but it worked out well.
With that said, I just have to touch up a second one of these and paint two douche canoes before Saturday (I have no idea why I saved HQ's for last). Honestly, I'm not too worried about the paint part. I really just want to bring a fully painted force, roll some dice and have some fun. If for some reason I can't get it all painted, I will just bring wraiths, spiders or something else I have that is already painted.
In any case, look out for some painted crons soon. Before the tourney I will also do a little showcase here with all of my painted crons, which should be fun since I have never placed them all in one place at the same time!
As always, let me know what you think!
