First Look- Wave Two Necron Bits

Well I had a chance over the weekend to make bits items for all the new Necron Wave 2 kits.

They have pretty nice conversion potential and I have a ton of great ideas on how to use them, some of which I shared on the close-ups in the video.

Check it out below! Get the skinny on all 40 new bits items, and maybe grab some inspiration for a project yourself!

Want to order the new Necron Models, or Citadel Paints?!! 
We got em! Give us a call at (804) 464 1873, or email us for our current Games Workshop product sheet, and we’ll get your order in no time. 

Best of all we have one shipping rate to all of the US, and reduced shipping for overseas customers, as well as a special rate for shipping to Canada!

Arachnophobia- Canoptek Spyder Conversion

Checkout this eerie autonomous Necron Canoptek Spyder Conversion.

I got looking around the blog-o-sphere the other day for some inspiration on converting up a Spyder model, (since Games Workshop hasn’t re-released one yet) for an upcoming Necrontyr project.

Eventually I ended up over at White Metal Games’ blog, clicking though all of his designs until I found this little guy.

I’ll admit it will be hard to try to improve on this conversion, but I’ll have to try.  For now though let’s take a look at how he did it.

The Conversion(s)

From the looks of it, this bugger started as a Necron Destroyer. I think both the bottom and top pieces were assembled over the legs.  Speaking of legs, I have no clue what those are…but I’ll definitely be storming the toy aisle next time I make a Wal-Mart run! Maybe I can get lucky and find something close.

The head is a Triarch / Praetorian Displacment Jump Pack affixed over the front groin bit that normally attaches to the top half of the Necron “pilot’s” torso.

On the back, the cannon is a trimmed down Tesla Carbine from the Immortals/ Deathmark box set. 

I really like the look to the model, but being a “spyder” and all- I would like to see some crazy mandibles all over the face. I think that may just give it that right amount of creepy to take the edge off the “robot” look.

Either way, it’s a great model that really got the gears turning in my head.

Great work from White Metal Games!  Model shots below.

Money Shot!
 Little Size Comparison…
Side View..

Be sure to checkout White Metal Games (WMG) over on their blog.  He’s got some really neat stuff on there, half of which I would have never even imagined possible!
