Necron Lychguard

Come get some...

Short work week already starting crappy, for modeling anyway. I did get President’s Day off, but I spent it installing my new Smart TV, (and all the hassle that legacy cabling incurred due to HDMI inputs on the new set), rather than modelling as I had thought I would. (Well, ok, I played a bit of SWTOR too).

I did manage to get 30min in today to clip swords, arms and review posing options. The ‘we can do anything’ arms are problematic, being shared in part with the warscythes. Awfully small to pin, I foresee many repairs in their future. I was able to pose one model. The erstwhile sergeant, (there are no such things in the Necron list), was chosen for the longest loincloth and fanciest headdress. For his gear, there are 5 total phase swords in the box; 2 pointed forward, 2 at right angles and one held sword tip down. I gave him this last one, the inverted sword, (it’s hard to tell from the pic at left). It’s not ideal, but I kind of like the way it turned out. He stands tall, tip of his sword buried in the sands, dispersion shield held relaxed at his side, arrogant in his knowledge he can best any challenger. His shield is only tacked on for the moment, I’d like to paint them separate.

The rest of them will be more dynamically posed due to the way the arms & swords  work, but it may take most of the week due to the fidgety nature of the hands. Ugh…
