Necron objective markers

Recommended Posts

Following a couple trials to print these (really I was looking for things to print with the clear green resin and Necrons sprung to mind) I managed to get a good set of 6 printed up. Then the idea skittered across my brain that I should put a light in them...

 

So I have started painting them in the stereotypical dark+metal+green and picked up a small box of LEDs along with a coupe switches.

Here’s the group shot.

A bit of Reaper Coal Black and some Vallejo Copper.  They need at least another coat.  
 

Test with a green LED held inside.

Once they get a bit more paint on them, I’ll build up some bases to hide the following bits in them.

Hoping to get another coat of paint on them later tonight along with the start of some edge highlights, but I’m solo-parenting so we’ll see how the evening goes.
For now, it’s time to take the kids to their music lessons.  

 

Thanks for looking.

Finally got a bit more work done on these. Building the bases proved a little more complicated than originally planned.

First base ready.  I’ve got a switch to make things easier.

Found the reaper bases were a little shallow for the electronics so I designed and printed a couple, including the opening for the switch. They have been primed black.

I’m also printing a couple extension rings for the finished base that was done with a Reaper one so it will sit flat.  
 

oh, how I love this new aspect of modeling!

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      I still don't have a great photography setup, so despite efforts, this is fairly washed out (pinks in the cheeks aren't as apparent as IRL, and the hair is dulled in the photos). But until I can get figures in for a photoshoot with a friend, these will do. Sloppy selfie with the inspiration for the figure setup, before I try to dye my hair back to normal. Been teal for 9 months now, and I miss my blonde.
      I painted the figure roughly as myself, instead of with ideal artistic combinations. The patch on the back isn't really the coolest, but that's our work group's logo (and a diagram of part of my PhD research). So it is a personal design, distinctly not artistic. Also dragon instead of weasel.... heh.

      When his wife passed away, Baron von Leeresgehirn tried to raise his son by himself as good as he could.
      The young boy did well.
      Both villagers and nobles liked young Alaric, they had pity on his father though, the poor man could never forget his late wife, never remarried and never even longed for any woman.
      Years went by and Alaric was about to come of age.
      To celebrate, a huge feast was prepared and Alaric himself decided to take some friends with him on a hunting trip to provide meat for the feast.
       
      They rode into the woods, further and further, the Sun went down and they made camp.
      Sitting around the fire the friends drank, ate and made jokes, when suddenly a a loud scream was heard.
      Alarmed the men took up their swords and ran towards the direction the scream came from, another scream was heard and then nothing...
       
      They found an old abandoned hunter's hut, carefully they walked to the door, one of the men kicked it open.
      Holding a torch Alaric entered the hut, the scene before him sent a cold chill down his spine.
      A beautiful young woman sat on the floor, her back leaning against the wall, she was covered in blood, two dead men laid beside her, also drenched in blood.
      The poor girl looked at Alaric and whispered "help me" before she fainted.
       
      Alaric and his men took the girl to his father's Castle, no doubt those men were bandits ready to ravage her, surely they had gotten into a fight who got first turn and when the one killed the other the poor girl had taken her chance and plunged a dagger in the other bandit's throat.
      So brave and yet so fragile and beautiful, Alaric thought.
       
      For a few days the young woman rested in a spare room, Alaric had been visiting her every evening to see how she was doing and it seemed they liked each other.
      Alaric's father was proud of his son, and he figured the girl must be of noble birth given her dress she was found in.
      He hoped she would recover soon enough, he was a tad worried about Alaric, though, the boy seemed to look paler every day and he didn't even eat and drink anymore.
      Every night he was at the girl's side, oh to be young and in love again, the Baron thought.
      He had learned her name, Sangrariah, she would make a nice bride for Alaric if things went on as they seemed, the Baron thought.
      It would be nice to have a woman around the house again.
       
      That night the Baron was woken up by a sound, he looked up and saw Alaric and Sangrariah standing besides his bed.
      Oh, good! He said, you seem to be better! But ehh, why are you in my room?
      Sangrariah insisted to thank you for your hospitality Father, Alaric spoke in a trembling voice, the boy looked paler than ever and had he cut himself shaving?
      The Baron sat upright now in his bed when the young woman approched him, please My Lord, let me thank you with a kiss.
       
      Before he could resist the young woman embraced him, he felt a sharp pain in his neck, the poor inexperienced girl must have bitten him, where his last thoughts as a mortal man.
       
      From that night on, the Barony was ruled in a different way.
