Well, I never thought I'd see the day, I thought my hobby had died for good! I'm pleased to say that a pulse has been detected!
Life has been pretty busy anyways: job continues to chew through my time, as does the Masters Degree, as does the girlfriend! The hobby has definitely been relegated in the last year.
So what changed? Not sure really, but the impending release of a new IA Volume and the Necron Tomb Complex from Forgeworld definitely got the juices flowing again. Then, just to make sure I got the mojo going again, GW release new Tau models and this bad boy:
I guess it was only a matter of time before GW released some super-mech for the Tau! This model is awesome, and I cant wait to put it together. I even bought the Tau codex for my iPad with a view to starting an army! As I rummaged through my storage boxes I even stumbled upon an unopened box of these:
I'd say that's a sign from the Ethereal's that I need to join the fight for the Greater good! But first - galactic domination and extermination of all life; that's right, its Necron time!
I wanted to get the Night Scythe finished before I started anything else. I undercoated it first, and while that was drying, set about creating the scenic base. You may remember the Necron Obelisk I made waaaaaaay back in 2011 - i'm making another one of these to go on the base of the Night Scythe.
As I continuously use the shower gel this bottle belongs to, supply was not a problem. Though replicating the glyph would be....
I went old school and did a rubbing of the original. I then stuck it to some plasticard and i'll cut it out once its dried.
As for the Obelisk itself - I sawed off the bottom of it so I could glue it at an angle. It would be to tall straight up when the Night Scythe was attached. The Scythe will be tilted at an angle as if the craft was banking over the top of the Obelisk.
A few crystals on the base just jazzes it up a bit. I'll dig out some Scarabs to attach later on to.
It felt so good modelling again! So here's to the revival of the Dynasty, and the next Sphere of Expansion!
