Painting Noise Marines – Feels Like Necrons


Time for another painting Noise Marines update but why does it feel like I’m painting NECRONS!! Stay tuned to find out more Nick speaking and welcome to this video right time for another save by Slaanesh episode I’m going to be updating you on the work that I’ve been doing on painting my 36 Noise Marines before that though if you would like to keep up to date with the wonders of Warhammer 40k then please subscribe and hit the bell button so you don’t miss an upload okay so first of all just a massive thank you to everyone that watched my previous video in the series the truth behind saved by slaanesh the response that I got from that video was just awesome and I really appreciate all of the fantastic and kind comments that I received I also received a lot of great support from my wargamers unification facebook group I received a lot of private messages on there as well so just a massive thank you to everyone I really appreciate your support now not only did I get a lot of messages I’ve also got a fantastic gift from one of my subscribers I’m going to reveal that gift in next week’s saved by slaanesh video so make sure you tune back in for that one for this week though we are going to take a look at the work that I’ve done on my Noise Marines now after all of the support that I received on my previous video I have to say that evening I was really geed up to get to these Noise Marines painted and that night I did a big painting session and I’ve been painting these as much as possible ever since now as we take a closer look I’m sure you can see the majority of the painting that I’ve done have been metallics mainly silver and that really did feel like I was painting Necrons in actual fact one of the models even has necron head on its banner I literally did paint a necron I’ve had a lot of fun it’s been a lot of hard work everything that you see of course has had two thin coats I based the silver with boltgun metal on the guns and on the backpacks and some of the areas have got ironbreaker just to mix the silver look up a little bit I’ve still got some silver detailing to do but I’ve done a good amount of detailing on these guys now as far as the gold is concerned what you see at the moment is all base coated with balthasar gold now I’m going to show you the champions in a minute because I’ve done something slightly different with them now you probably can notice I do also have some blue painted on these models I got a little bit fed up of painting just silver and gold so I changed things up in one painting session and I went in and I painted all of the hair on these models and the hair is actually finished I went over the black with kantor blue and then I went over with altdolf blue and then altdolf blue with white mixture just to bring in those highlights now I’m painting these guys the same as I’m painting my 13th company’s space wolves because in actual fact they are wearing some Emperor’s children armor so I’ve been using these models as my base as my structure for painting the noise marines of course I’ve got a big part still left to do and that’s painting the pink the pink probably will come next now regarding the gold I of course have recently got Warhammer conquest issue 1 and in there is the retribution armor gold paint now I’ve never used this before and I’m told it’s one of the best gold paints that Games Workshop do so I thought I would try this paint out on my Noise Marines now whilst painting the gold and silver I was wondering to myself how I was going to paint the doom sirens on the Emperor’s children champions so when I got hold of this paint I thought how about I paint that’s one on the doom siren so that is what I did now as you can see this has come out rather shiny especially compared to the rest of the gold on the models I have to be honest I got a little bit concerned while I was painting these am I making the right decision they are champions after all so it doesn’t matter if they stand out however I don’t want them to stand out like a sore thumb and ruin the look of the army on the table and as I said I really did get concerned by this so I thought what I would do is I would do a test piece of how the two golds are going to look after they’ve been washed and highlighted so that’s what I did and I have to say once I’ve done that I felt a lot happier the retribution gold doesn’t look so gaudy once it’s been highlighted and the balthasar gold looks a little bit brighter and more vibrant once that has been washed and highlighted so I think these two golds are going to work together the question is am I going to bring the retribution armor gold into the Noise Marines themselves here and there maybe on some spikes or other areas of the armor or do I save the retribution gold just for the champions let me know what you think in the comments box below now as these models spin around and you already know the truth of the army I’m now going to reveal that this guy here is actually supposed to be me I have my arms in the air and I am screaming save by slaanesh now the army does feature one other person in it and I will reveal that later in the series but this other person is also responsible for me wanting green within the army now it did have a few comments regarding my demon princess how the green didn’t quite match but what you have to remember is I’m painting this army as a whole rather than as individual models so that green may not work on the model although I think it does but if you think it doesn’t what you have to remember is that the whole army is going to have little spots of green all over it so when it’s finished hopefully it will all match together okay so I really hope you enjoyed a look at these models let me know in the comments box below and if you enjoyed the video please consider subscribing hit my icon at the end of the video so you can keep up to date with the wonders of Warhammer 40k being me up

  1. Nooice! I make liberal use of golds in my Slaaneshi warband as well. Have you considered using bits of both Balthazar and Retibuter for the doom sirens? Having a darker gold for details- like on the horns of the siren-demon-faces- might also help unify their looks while still making the champions stand out.

  2. Dude! Those metal heads are coming along! I'm suuuuper lookin forward to seeing that pink on all the armor. Ive had a thought tho. Since they're noise marines they gotta make some noise. Would it make sense if everything that made sonic attacks had a green highlight effect? Also what color are those belt speaker faces going to be? Most speakers have that black fabric over them or a black metallic mesh. Would those look cool in green? Questions and more questions, my dude! Ill be following the progress of these wicked thrashers in the future 🎸

  3. Hi IDIC. What colour are you paining your Noise Marine armour? I only ask because normally I would paint the "inside out" technique (i.e. start with the deepest details on the model and then move outwards). You seem to be doing the exact opposite, starting with the weapons, backpacks etc and moving in. I know I would have a terrible time avoiding these (very nicely) painting details as I then had to do the bulk of the armour. Keep up the great work (love the Daemon "Princess"). For the Dark Gods! Iron Within! Iron Without!

  4. Looking good, I think the regular marines should get some Retributor gold as well but less than the champions. Could be that the higher your standing the more high quality gold you can wear.

  5. very nice! Especially "your" model. Could also make a signboard behind with transfers of "saved by Slaanesh" behind that model. I think the gold should be saved for champions only. Makes them more distinctive.

  6. again another great video Nick. Keep up the great work :). Miss the Necrons 🙁 but its nice to see you keeping busy on your channel.

  7. All caught up! Honestly, I'd blend the retributor gold into your base noise marines, just by tiny bits. Pick out skulls or accents pieces on each model here and there and I think it will not only tie them together, but make the whole army pop. Remember, we Emperor's Children are supposed to be the flashiest, sometimes gaudiest, of all the Chaos armies. Give your boys some bling and make them pop. Add in the animal print idea here and there that I had mentioned earlier, and I think you'll have one of the best EC painted armies that I've ever seen showcased. You're obviously willing to put in the time on this passion project. Go all the way. As to the green, tell that nay-sayer to bugger off. It looks fantastic and it will tie in fantastically in the end. Looking forward to your next update. May the Dark Prince continue to guide you.

  8. I’m all for using gold across the Marines. Noise Marines only experience pleasure from extreme sensory overload so besides the music of war (explosions) I imagine they would be adorn in bring color and metal that shines the most. I did some trim in gold and I think random pipes/blaster tips.

  9. You're making really good progress! I think you should reserve the shiny gold for the champions only. It will really make them stand out. Also, I think the green looks perfect with the purple. But I have to say that, because I have a whole space marines army that is purple with bits of green in it.

  10. Yay! Slaanesh! 🙂

    Nick, those models are looking absolutely fantastic! That gold work is stunning. The wash blends it well.

    As you may know I use Retributor Gold for my Necron bodies. I find it a great color, think you'll like it!

  11. Coming along nicely, love them .. and as for the green on the princess .. I don't know who said it doesn't work, but the contrast against the pink is nothing short of perfection, it works exactly as it should … Don't even think about changing it 😀

  12. whel so fare so good and the slanesh guys re neber over do the demens of lust and over doing things and look at rock bands and corday why they dress well will got see all can think 19 80s M TV stuff AC DC van halen tom petty well just have see and when you post we and all out will see ZAR BOTS

  13. Looking great there Nick, you can certainly tell how much time your putting into these! Always fun to see when people include themselves in their army.

  14. Make back sides of DoomSirens painted with more colors, not only gold and silver. They too plane. You may even have diferent color for each Champion.

    And YES! MMOORE gold. All kinds of gold you can find.

  15. I'm a big fan of Retributer Armour Gold, I use it a lot with my Deathwatch. Great painting Nick, especially those Space Wolves!

  16. Awesome update, my friend! I think the gold will work out just fine and the green really pops nicely on the demon princess. Is the demon princess the other character base? It would definitely for your backstory for the army.
    Much love to you my friend!
