So, I knocked out a Necron test model over the weekend.
I don't like it. I don't think it works at all.
The highlights don't work well. The model's boring. It looks odd. The proportions look off thanks to the black / bone contrast.
The face looks creepy, but just doesn't work.
I've been thinking about how I need an "I don't give a fuck" army, where I get to see how the other half (folks who just want to play and don't care about the hobby aspect of the game) lives. It just takes me so damn long to paint an army, it gets frustrating, you know?
I thought Necrons could be that army: I think they're neat, but I'm not emotionally invested in them or anything. That's why I thought maybe I could get away with something so explicitly unoriginal.
Also, holy poop, I'm terrible at wet-blending.
Back to the drawing board!
