Plasmancer & Cryptothralls

I picked up the Necron half of the Indomitus box for a decent price, and plan to use them for trying out different approaches. The models are fantastic and a firm favourite with my kids - Necrons have a real unpleasant, sinister character emerging with these sculpts.

These three were started as a paint-along with Craftworld Studio on how to paint metallics better, and a little quicker. I've hardly painted anything with true metallic metals (TMM) this calendar year, so this was a nice change of pace.

The most time was taken on creating a satisfactory effect for the blades to stand out, but not adding too many colours. All I was focused on was not doing the standard blue or green often seen on Necrons.

The bases are just thrown together, and very matt with heavy pigment dusting to offset the shine across the Necrons. They're lost under the models and I

My advice for anyone painting the Plasmancer would be to paint as much as you're comfortable painting BEFORE final assembly. It was super tricky to reach some of the areas with everything glued together. Even without putting it on the base.
