SHOWCASE: Necron Deathmarks
My completed Deathmark Squad
I built these Deathmarks from the two battle forces I purchased last August. They took a bit of a rules ding in the new codex, but they're still worth fielding. (And necessary for me to complete my Decurion detachment)
I've painted them black, despite my dynasty's color being yellow, in order to set them apart from my main force, and to break up the monotony of the color scheme - much as I did with my Tau Pathfinders. I enjoyed painting them, but all of the glowing details and edge highlighting the black took a lot longer than I expected.
I'm also sorely disappointed in the total lack of poseability in the models. There are no kneeling legs, no lowered arms, no single arm holds - it just looks like the same model, in the same pose over and over and over again. Even turning the heads to the side means chopping parts off the neck/torso, to get a little variation. Not cool.
