The Necron Ghost Ark emerges as a substantial masterpiece within your miniature collection, demanding attention with its formidable stature. Dominated by its robust engines positioned at the rear, the model’s frame is adorned with intricate detailing, featuring orbs and dynastic glyphs that speak of its ancient origins. Commanding attention from its elevated perch, a Necron Lord surveys the battlefield from atop the Ghost Ark. A haunting scene unfolds in the foreground, with a line of Necron Warriors seemingly encased within the colossal ribcage of an otherworldly creature.

Moreover, the Ghost Ark harbors an arsenal of impressive weaponry, further solidifying its role as a versatile asset. Each side boasts an array of five gauss flayers, ready to unleash devastating firepower on any opposition that dares to challenge its dominion.

  • x168 plastic components with which to build one Necron Ghost Ark or one Doomsday Ark.
  • x2 small flying stems.
  • x1 Citadel 60mm flying base. 
  • x2 Necron transfer sheets.

How to paint the Ghost Ark set

  1. Step 1: Base Colors
    Begin by painting the main body of the Ghost Ark with a metallic paint, like silver or bronze. For instance, you can use Leadbelcher to give it a metallic sheen or Abaddon Black for a stealthy look. Apply it to the framework and the engine parts.
  2. Step 2: Adding Detail
    Focus on the intricate areas. Use a contrasting color, like a glowing green, typical for necrons, for the orbs and glyphs. You can apply Tesseract Glow to these areas to make them stand out.
  3. Step 3: Commanding Presence
    Paint the Necron Lord sitting atop the Ghost Ark. Use a bronze for the armor, like Brass Scorpion. Apply a lighter color like Skullcrusher Brass, to the details, such as the face, to make them pop. 
  4. Step 4: Necron Warriors
    Paint the Necron Warriors inside the Ghost Ark. Choose a color for their armor, like Stormhost Silver or Runelord Brass. Apply a wash to add shading and depth. For instance, use Nuln Oil to achieve this effect.
  5. Step 5: Formidable Weapons
    Paint the gauss flayers on the sides of the Ghost Ark. Use a metallic paint for the gun barrels, like Leadbelcher or any metallic paint you used earlier. Add a wash (in our case Nuln Oil again) to enhance the details. 
  6. Step 6: Highlighting
    Add highlights to make the model stand out. Use a lighter metallic color, like Runefang Steel, on edges and raised parts. Apply a small amount to create a shiny effect.
  7. Step 7: Final Touches
    Add any additional details you want, like decals or insignias. Use a fine brush to paint small symbols or lines. You can use contrasting colors to make them visible. Warpstone glow, Moot Green are some good options that fit the theme of this faction. 
  8. Step 8: Seal and Protect
    Finish by applying a varnish to protect your paintwork. This also gives the model a uniform finish.
