|Not a huge force by any stretch.|
Two Necron Lords and two warrior box kits. The 'how' I got all this is worth mentioning. To begin with I bought both warrior kits for like 10$ each on eBay which is quite the steal. I went to my LGS to buy a Necron Lord to complete the army and the only two kits they had were missing their glow rods. I gave the kits to the person in charge (Mike) and he wrote them off and gave them both to me! He said that they were unsellable now and that I spent enough there that he'd rather just give them to me. The last step was buying the glow rod replacements from eBay.
|Their leader. I didn't spend much time on him maybe an hour or two.|
|For the amount of effort these guys look great!|
|The Warrior...stop crying you will get an update soon enough.|
I feel this is a good example of how to get an army to 'table-top' quality easily for a new player. It is certainly not going to be scoring any big painting points but it does have the three color minimum and is based. So what do you all think? At this point its just a small demonstration army for a quick skirmish (500 point) battle and doesn't even have a monolith. Oh and the other Necron Lord? He had a bad encounter with the Army Painter Anti-Shine and looks very foggy. Normally I'd toss him or at very least strip him and start over but for the sake of this demonstration army it isn't worth it.
So what will become of these guys? Well, for now they are sitting in a cabinet waiting for someone to try. I won't be expanding them unless they get a codex update or I start having to give a lot more demonstration battles.
