Working on Necrons...
I just played my first game of Kill Team. It is a bit more complicated than regular 40k but It is much smaller. The one thing I found out is that I needed some new models for my team.
I chose necron for my team. The necrons can have warriors, immortals, deathmarks, and flayed ones. While I have warriors, immortals, and deathmarks I have been putting off making my flayed ones. Until now.
I have 20 warrior bodies that I intended to make into flayed ones. I wasn't sure how I was going to model the claws since I couldn't find a good replacement for the ones Games Workshop makes I tried a couple of tutorials but I never could make it look right. I then tried to use hormagaunt talons but in the end I wanted to use hands. I was about to give up until I found some old Mage Knight figures.
I found the hands from the solonavi siren has the look and feel as claws for my flayed ones. Here I have five or six of these so I am going to have to make a mold for them if I am going to do a full twenty man squad but that is a problem for another day.
The next step is the skin or in my case a cloak. I plan on using the method found here. It seems pretty easy and will be a bonus technical project for this month.
So, that is all I have so far.
I have another game Thursday. Maybe I will take a few pictures and give a first impression recount for you guys.
