Orikan Star God Miniature?

Nick speaking,

As many of you already know, I have a three C'tan Shard Necron themed army. My three C'tans are based on the Deceiver, Nighbringer and Void Dragon, which I converted up a while back. The army has been evolving, and I now have Orikan as my HQ choice, he has the nice combo with Worldscape for turn one, but lets face it, he is in the army to give me another mini C'tan when he is empowered!

So what model to use for an empowered Orikan? Step in Ben from Master Crafted Miniatures with his amazing Star God sculpt. Ben is a freelance miniature sculptor and Master Crafted Miniatures serves as an outlet for whatever sculpting he has time to do outside of professional contracts. He is also able to do private commissions, such as custom shoulder pads, but back to the Star God Sculpt...

As I am painting my mini to replace Orkin when he changes, I want to have a feel that he is being empowered. I plan on painting him blue, with a few morphing metal sections. I want the blue to be bright in the middle and gradually go darker on the outer parts. Now I don't own an air brush, so I used a piece of card with a small hole in it and my cans of Army Painter primers to give me the transition I need for the pre-shading...

Now to work on the blue!

Everyone need to paint a Spitfire!

Nick speaking,

I think it's not right to have never painted a Spitfire mini! So when I got the chance to paint up this Micro Wings plane for a bit of fun, I jumped at the chance. It's a pretty basic kit, and very small (1:144), but for my first ever plane, I am happy with it...

How to make a Necron Power Station (part 3)

Nick speaking,

So onto the last part in this little series of posts on how I made my Necron Power Station...

So with the Power Generators magnetised, I thought it would be pretty cool if I could take the generators out of the building, and then replace them with some rubble instead, just to mix up the piece of terrain a little. This was easily done with a few cardboard bases with matching magnets to the floor of the building, and then covering those boards with rubble.

You will probably also spot that I have a magnet on the side of the piece above as well, and that is so that I can magnetise the section to the outside of the building for the times that the Power Generators are in place. All of the rubble is designed to be fairly flat so that the minis are able to stand on the piece. I also added some rubble to the main building along with some sand and more glyph to finish it all off...
