Another Verdus Prime Necron

I'm beginning to like painting Necrons in Verdus Prime colours! Today is my third Verdus Prime Necron (Others can be found here and here). I originally purchased a box of plastic necrons as I wanted to create a renegade chaos marine chapter that replaced many of their mutated parts with bionic parts. But I am enjoying simply assembling these necrons "as is". Chances are that I'll never use them in games, so I'm simply regarding them as a bit of assembling and painting practise!

There's nothing exceptional about this particular fellow - the paint scheme follows the previous one that was devised some time ago. The base uses cork to give the model a bit of extra height and has been drybrushed brown to be suggestive of muddy, earthy rocks.

Looks good. I like Necrons much better when there's more to them then just Boltgun Metal.

Hi Oni - yes, far too many necrons tend to only have two colours on them (black & boltgun metal). I like these necrons, but I don't think I'll ever start an army of them :)

Love it. The extra colors on the Necron really makes it stand out beyond rust, and metalics. It gives it almost a "sterile" look to it. Which is perfect for something to annihilate life from the galaxy.

out of curiosity what did you to the rods to make it have that dark swirl in it? did you paint the surface or do something crazier. or am i just seeing things.

@ Nathan:
Your eyes do not deceive you!
The swirls along the green rod were painted on the surface with Dark Angel green ... inspired by the original Dawn of War game series.

Very nice. I am a Necron guy but i was so bored of the green rods that my friend and i are working on a way to use resin to make red ones instead. it's good to know that i could potentially use the same technique. oh and dawn of war was awesome. just a side note.
