Epic : Armageddon – Necron Infantry

Posted on February 5th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

First Infantry squad finalised. The robots are from Dark Realm Miniatures. The shoulder pads are kinda too massive for Necrons, but with metal paint job, they will do just fine. This is the first of three squads and my scratched Dalek finally found a purpose in life as Supreme Dalek aka C’tan shard of the Necron dynasties. […]
