“We’ll Be Back”



I think I got my first Necron models very early in 2003, or late 2002. That’s quite a bit back now and I can’t remember what I had for dinner yesterday (that’s why I’m putting recipes in this blog). But I really loved the space robot, terminator aesthetic but they didn’t last long as I wasn’t enamoured with their pretty straightforward play style.

So I went green instead and stayed that way for a long, long time. Of course with the splash of red to go faster and blue for luck.

But the Indomitus new model releases, especially the update to the Warrior sculpt really had me interested and after looking at all the new models and interactions in the Codex I’m really up for jumping into this army with both feet, shins, knees, and even thighs.

I’ve nothing built yet but I’m going to be charting my progress on my Twitter account using the hashtag #HobbyStreak as suggested by Rob across at The Honest Wargamer on a recent podcast episode.

What I’ve got to build though is a wee bit:

  • Catacomb Command Barge
  • Overlord x2
  • Royal Warden x4
  • Plasmancer x2
  • Cryptothralls x4
  • Skorpekh Lord x2
  • Skorpekh Destroyers x6
  • Plasmacyte x2
  • Canoptek Reanimator x2
  • Canoptek Scarab Swarm – 27 bases
  • Necron Warriors – 90 models (I miscounted the Indomitus boxes)
  • Night Scythe
  • Hexmark Destroyer
  • Doom Blades x3

I’m going to try and build at least one model a day but want to get all the Scarabs, Warriors, and an Overlord done first.

I’ve also got some plans to kitbash Nightbringer and a Transcendent C’tan out of some Age of Sigmar stuff, so watch out for progress on that as well.

I’ll add a gallery below this as and when I build anything, and add to the list above as I buy things.

(This is another older post, but I’m just dragging all my gaming and hobby stuff back out of the shed)
