Ok, taking a rest from the campy robot sound effects.

I tried playing Necron and Tau as allies and I was impressed by the Tau's firepower. I wanted to buy a Riptide and a Battlesuit Commander. But then I taught, why not create a Necron version of them?


Thus began the conversion of the XV104 Riptide, using Tomb Blades, Annihilation Barge and a Tomb Stalker.

I admit this conversion was heavily followed by this picture.

So in that I present to you, the Canoptek Destroyer!

Any way to make those legs a little less spindly? Also, I can't wait to see how you convert up the other units.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I have beefed up the legs with additional armour to make it less thin. Please tell me how it is.

Oh and I will be attaching a Tau Commander on to my Riptide. Rules says IC can't attach to single models, but the Riptide can take shield missile drones, which then turns it into a unit therefore making the Riptide joinable and receiving the Commanders buff.

Anyway I started work on a suitable Tau Commander for my Necrons, and I came to a conclusion. Wouldn't it be cool for the Riptide a.k.a the 'Canoptek Destroyer' be commanded by none other than a 'Canoptek Prime'!? BAM! Nailed it. Using the bitz I have from the Necron components used to build the Canoptek Destroyer, I worked on converting a suitable Canoptek Prime. The results, a towering monster of a machine with spider legs. I leave the pictures for your viewing pleasure. I had great fun brainstorming and converting this machine beasts.

Now I need to build two more units for my Tau detachment:

Shielded Missile drones. Can anyone give me some ideas and tips on how to build say... a Canoptek Drone?

20 Kroots. I am loving the Kroots as outflankers. I need to make a suitable 'feral' Necrons, and the only thing I can come up with are Necron Flayed Ones. So imagine, Flayed Ones draped with the flesh of their victims wielding Synaptic Disintegrators?

For the drones maybe make something resembling a larger Scarab?

Yeah, perhaps larger flying scarabs carrying tiny tesla weapons?

You are truly a plastic kit master and I'm going to have to steal your orb technique . Any new visions for the krootish flayed ones? This thread gets better and better every time I visit.
