The Imhotep Dynasty

With 6th Edition out and my work finally underway on making a new Necron army, I've been purchasing models like mad trying to get a decent sized army that I can use in a standard force organisation chart. I've even found a solution to the problem with British summers (for those who aren't in the know, it rains here during the summer) by way of a Games Workshop store in the Wood Green area, who are letting people spray up minis out back. Excellent! I finished Trazyn the Infinite completely today, I'm fairly pleased with the results:

I finished the model off since the last post by giving the green bits of the staff a wash with thraka green (I wanted to try the new green glaze, but alas it hasn't arrived yet and I'm impatient), doing a few bits of cloak between the legs that were still black, did the base and gave the whole model a varnish with the Army Painter's Anti-Shine Varnish. The base was given a basecoat (pun not intended) of bestial brown, then the top was given a coat of skull white, the side of the base a coat of graveyard earth and then flocked using Woodland Scenics Snowflakes (I took these from the Scene-A-Rama Winter Effects). The Anti-Shine Varnish was a new experiment but I was pretty pleased with the results. Unsurprisingly it took away the shininess of the orchide shade basecoat, which I was happy about, but surprisingly it kind of blended some of the colours together and made it seem less artificial. Well worth doing.

As to the remainder of my force, I am theming my army on my own Necron Dynasty, the Imhotep Dynasty, which I've posted about before. You can read up on the fluff I wrote here.

So far, this is what my new force consists of:

Trazyn the Infinite (Complete)
Overlord - Nemekh the Summoner (Waiting on bits for conversion)
  • Kharimekh the First (Needs paint stripping and repainting)
C'Tan Shard of the Nightbringer (Needs snow base added and varnishing)
Deathmarks (Need assembling)

10 Immortal (Assembled, awaiting undercoat)
20 Warriors (Assembled, awaiting undercoat)
10 Warriors (Awaiting delivery)

1 Ghost Ark (Needs assembling)

Fast Attack
3 Canoptek Wraiths w/Whip Coils (Assembled, awaiting undercoat)
5 Scarab Bases (Need assembling)
3 Scarab Bases (Awaiting delivery)

Heavy Support
1 Canoptek Spyder w/Gloom Prism (Part assembled)
1 Canoptek Spyder w/Fabricator Claws (Awaiting delivery)
1 Monolith (Complete, may touch up the paintwork)
1 Annihilation Barge (Awaiting delivery)

I think this should do as the start of my force. Thinking Lychguard or a Triarch Stalker next...
