Necrons - Canoptek Scarabs and Canoptek Reanimator

Hello All, thanks for dropping by. I started on my Indomitus Necrons and the first out the box was the 'War of the Worlds' Canoptek Reanimator. Love this new aspect of the Necrons, very alien looking, great miniature. But first, I painted the new Canoptek Scarabs.
The new Canoptek Scarabs come as blobs of Scarabs to look more like the swarms they are, a vast improvement on the single 4 Scarabs per base of the old Warriors. I added at least six to each of my bases to make more swarm-like. But these look great 'out of the box'.
To blend them in to the masses of old Scrab bases I have, I added some old spare Scarabs and some of the smaller spare Scarabs from the Tesseract Vault.
The new piles of Scarabs look great
Here is a shot of the entire Swarm of Scarabs, they fit in nicely. 
And the new addition to the Necron forces, a Canoptek Reanimator, to boost the reanimation protocols of the nearby units. I added more spare pieces of a Kastelan Robot to the ruins of the base, a head unit and a spare arm-thumb piece.
I love the tall gangly looking aspect of this one, so much different from the rest of the Necron range, I can't wait for his bigger brother, the 'Canoptek Doomstalker' with the 'Doomsday Blaster' cannon atop - coming soon, who doesn't want a 48in Heavy D6 S10 -5AP D6dmg gun. OOoooh-LAAaaaa (War of the Worlds ref.)

Here you can see the unfortunate Kastelan robot, he is slowly being phased away by the feeder tendrils of some Scarabs. converting his mass into energy.
I added two spare Tesseract Vault Scarabs to the base on the re-bar and Kastelan head. There are two more small Scarabs moulded onto the base as well. My second Canoptek Reanimator will have some scrap Necron Warrior parts on the base to substitute this terrain and a spare head from the Canoptek Spyder kit to make both models different.
"No one could have dreamed we were being scrutinised, as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets and yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this Earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely, they drew their plans against us." (War of the Worlds)
Dun Dun Durr.... Dun Dun Durr....

  1. Love the color scheme...and those new scarab bases! Very cool. Definitely a swarm going there. The necron models are very well done. Cool to see some in a unique (non-dominant-silver) color scheme.


For the Emperor! (and other Xenos welcome...)
