So given how poorly I performed in last years TOEG I have decided to take a head-start on this years...

Actually, as I plan on having 2 more armies completed in the next few months, for a tournament I'm running in June, I really need to get cracking.

anyway, the first of these forces is a nice and quick one to paint (theoretically atleast)
since taking these photos i've undercoated it, but they wouldnt show up well...

(Excavator goes on the rightmost objective)

If you treat the giant flying saucer as a Warbarque instead of an Abbatoir, and drop one of the pylons it forms the 4000pt army needed for the tournament

that would actually be a Directorate Carrier from firestorm armada. its 2 resin parts, 2 metal, and yeah, its a great model and quite cheap.

I'm planning on getting a few of the smaller ships to make a BFG/FA fleet for the crons at some point, but right now the epic army is the priority

VERY nice force. My resistance to getting a Necron force is being flayed away...

I love that gate. What did you use for the Green 'wave' effect within the circle?

I think it's a piece from the 40k monolith.

I'm curious about your obelisks since you are the second person I've seem with them like that. I'm guessing the pylons and vanes are no longer in production for the core?

what do we have here?
it appears to be some painted and based infantry (which make them my first actually finished epic miniatures, as i have yet to begin the (frankly, terrifying) task of basing my bloody hand...)
Image

yeah, not much to look at huh? lets see it from a different angle...
Image

and this fellow keeps lurking around the wings, put a shirt on you hippy!
Image

Image
and that nightbringer chap again

I'd suggest a different ground color than gray as it tends to make the cron models blend in.

That's why I used a reddish color on my cron bases and a slight greenish tint to the metals.

Regarding vanes and corners, I got tired of seeing my own junky resin output.

ah. I see. Those vanes were very nice and not junky at all as were the pylons.
