For my birthday, I treated myself to the Silent King for my Necron army. He is a large model and very intimidating. this post is the completed model.
I decided to paint him in sub-assemblies. I left off each crypteks and the King himself. I also left his cape off. This leaves the throne and the two Menhirs.
I wanted to add another color so his cape would stand out a bit. I used the Turbodork Seafood metallic paint. I think this fits in with my army's colors and I might go back and paint all the capes in the army this color.
I thought his base was a bit bland so I printed off some crystals and painted them with Moot Green with a white highlight. I finally added a wash of Tesseract Glow. This is similar to how I paint the energy arks on the model.
I tried a new technique with the stone. I painted the recessed parts with moot green then came back and painted the stones with Caliban Green. making sure to leave the Moot green alone. Then I used Tesseract Glow as a heavy wash. I like how it turned out.
I am really happy with how he turned out. I hear he is really powerful on the field. I guess when we are back to playing games I might find out.
Have a good weekend!
