As some of you will have seen across my social media, I’ve painted a few Necron models in the past year! I started off when Indomitus released, and haven’t been able to stop. I posted a guide for how to paint them on social media, but as not everyone uses it, I thought I’d do a more detailed post here too!
Spray the models in Retributor Armour.
Shade the inner areas and joints (anything that isn’t armour plating) with Magos Purple Contrast.
Shade the armour panels Seraphim Sepia. This creates a slightly dull but lovely rich gold colour.
Edge highlight the armour panels with Stormhost Silver. I mix a little Water+ from Instar into the silver to allow for a smoother highlight and easier application.
Shade all the weapons and cables with Black Templar Contrast.
Basecoat all the Gauss and glow areas with Corax White. As with the highlight, I mix Water+ into this to allow for the smoothest application.
Shade all the white areas with Talassar Blue.
Base it, and you’re done!
DONE! Super simple and quick and easy! You can even take these steps and just change the colours! the_sith_panda did exactly that to create her Necron scheme! Join me next week for more Hobby How To series! Hobby hobbying!
