Okay so the new Necron book came out - and everyone is a buzz. Of course, I have picked up some Necrons to paint for Rich, and wanted to show everyone how I am painting these for him. This unit of Praetorians is equipped with Hyperphase swords and Dispersion Shields.
Primer black.Basecoat Chainmail (GW) silver
Pick out small detail in Bright Brass (VGC)
Basecoat red in Mecharite Red (GW), then followup with a basecoat of Red Gore (GW)
Wash with Badab Black (GW).
Base highlight with Red Gore (GW). Next stage highlight Red Gore (GW) / Blood Red (GW) mix.
Next stage highlight Blood Red (GW). Edge highlight with Blood Red (GW) / Fiery Orange (GW) mix.
Basecoat sword blades with Dark Angel Green (GW). Basecoat codpiece with Cold Grey (VGC). Highlight with Stonewall Grey (VGC)
Having a bitch of a time getting the sword to come out the way I want it - The shield looks the same as the red armor. Will finish the unit off tonight and then futz with the swords. I think I am going to have to reverse highlight those things, because the edge highlights look like crap.
