A Tumblr for posting art and collaborating with other artists.
Fliers rule the skies in this edition, raining unsolicited death upon those below them, and with minimal retribution to be had.
My second Night Scythe/Doom Scythe is my first foray into Air Brushing, and it seems my first ever blend of paints was a perfect replication of Leadbeltcher from Citadel’s line. The mix was entirely from the Tamiya paint line, save for the water, which comes from nature.
- 3 parts Flat Aluminum
- 2 parts Gloss Black
- 1 part Acrylic Thinner
- 2 parts Water
This mix also lasted me long enough to base the whole of the Doom Scythe in one go, base a monkey to test adhesion, and still have enough left over to pour back into the Flat Aluminum pot. As I only have a single action Air Brush at this point, all other painting on this model was done by hand with a regular brush.
Got this bad boy ready to go for the tournament with time to spare. I might add billowing flame and smoke to it later, ‘cause Ghost Rider.
Or, rather, I need to finish current ones before starting new ones.
Having realized the general vulnerability of my Deathmarks on foot, and their fickle deepstriking nature, and having once seen a BEAUTIFUL deployment via a transport, I have decided to cannibalize the Ghost Ark kit that came with the Necron Battle Force and turn it into five Night/Doom Scythes and a Triarch Stalker. The Stalker will also be receiving some left over bits from my Barge to round things out, as I never use the “command console” for the Command Barge build.
I think the biggest challenge in this project will be figuring out how to craft the middle portion of the fliers. I have bits for everything else, Ghost Ark “ribs” for the wings, repairing warriors for pilots, flayer arrays for the Telsa Destructor stand-ins. I might just use the Dooms Day Cannon as the Death Ray, just for the heck of it.
