I've been gaming now for 25ish years and I don't know about you, but apart from tournament play, I think I've met maybe 1% of gamers with fully completed army's. In all this time "I" personally have never played with one, so that was the driving force behind this army. It also didn't see the light of day until it was complete to get the "tadaaa" when I took it along to the gaming club.
So after deciding on the Necron's I got the codex and after reading through it a time or two, I got down to building the army list. My first choice was Imotekh; all of the characters are characterful pardon the pun, but what struck me was Imotekh's storm. I loved the idea of an Imperial Guard army hunkered down in trenches in the middle of the day when a sudden Storm rolls in and within minutes it's as black as night; then the lighting starts frying troops and electrifying tanks when suddenly the Necron's emerge out of the gloom with an eerie green glow then the dying starts.
The green edging on the cloak to soooo long to do but I really like the final effect.
My Royal Court consists of two Lords and two Cryptecks. The Lords go with the Warrior units, the blue Crypteck of the storm goes with the lychguard, Imotekh and the red Crypteck of Destruction go with the Immortals.
Even though I went for red and blue to differentiate the Cryptecks being different Harbingers I stuck with the green edging to keep the theme going and I think the flashes of colour look good in the game.
Many of you will pick up on the fact they are not based yet; I'm currently stuck on deciding how to base them at this time, ideas are welcome. I will post a pic of the whole army once it is based.
Hope you like and may the dice be forever in your favour.
