Necron Middle Management

In between the more slight Reaper Cyber Reaver and the EM4 Skeleton Robot above squats one of the first official Necron designs that GW made.  The figure was given away free on the cover of White Dwarf in 1998 or so and after recent exhumation made it to the top of my painting list.

The design of the scarab is only vaguely insectile – more like some sort of generic robot drone thing really – so I can see these models with multiple duties.  They would be suitable as Mega City One Justice Department spy-in-the-sky cameras for example, which might be useful for a scenario some time.

Terminator Necrons #1

As noted previously, I have been experiencing a seasonal slump in my painting routine.  In an effort to jump start the process I decided to get stuck into a quickly painted, high turnover project starting with some Necron test pieces, followed by these ‘bots Continue reading
