Hey, I need some tips and pointers, on going about Painting My Necron Nightbringer.
I have seen how it's supposed to look and it looks very complicated and im just wondering what i need to do and how,
step by step would be nice, and a list of all things needed.
i may have to go and buy some new stuff as all my other stuff has aged for over 2 years, and could get them Tomorow

Here's a bigger pic, is this what you want?

well going by the picture i would say to undercoat it white but make sure you get a even finish then go over the full thing with badab black let it dry and slowly work your way down the model with another coat so it will get darker the more you go down if that makes sense then drybrush the top skull white to lighten the top half as for the ribbon or whatever itis i would paint this black then give it a 1:1 drybrush of black and skull white
hope some of this helps .....

Sounds like a good idea thanks

Yeah Vulpus that's exactly what i was wanting

I would prime the model black, then basecoat the flesh with Shadow Grey since it's got a slight blue tint to it. Make the "final" color an off-white so you can do highlights with pure white. Highlights on the cloth are Codex Grey.

I found a bigger picture :p

That's what they all say ;)

I'd say that adding some very thin blue washes and shading will do the trick on this mini. The rest seems pretty straight forward highlighting with some minor blending thrown in to scare away people.

Again Sorry About picture quality
I am Lacking a good camera

I think it may be too close to the camera, if you could try moving it back a bit and either putting it on macro mode if it wasn't on it or taking it off it, if it was that would be good. (Macro is usually the small flower symbol).

From what I can see it looks pretty good, I can't be more specific without slightly clearer pics, sorry.
