The Geth by ilLIZtrator The Geth by ilLIZtrator
And this is why I haven't been drawing much recently. I've been working on my Geth Army. They're Necrons that I'm modeling like the Geth from the Mass Effect series. This is only like half of the army, and I still have 12 more warriors to paint, and that's not even all of them.

The army will consist of:
- Legion (Necron Overlord 1, pictured)
- Geth Prime (Necron Overlord, pictured)
- 2 Geth Hunters (Necron Lords, pictured)
- 2 squads of 20 Necron Warriors each (each led by the Overlords with Phaeron, only 1 is pictured)
- 1 squad of 10 Geth Troopers in a Geth Dropship (Necron Warriors not pictured, Ghost Ark pictured)
- 2 squads of 10 Geth Destroyers (Necron Immortals with Tesla Carbines, 5 pictured)
- 1 Geth Fighter (Annihilation Barge, pictured)
- 2 Geth Colossus (Triarch Stalkers, not pictured)

It's like half way done, still need a ton of troops, 2 Triarch Stalkers, and a tone of Immortals, but here's what I got so far!!

Questions, comments, critiques and criticisms are always welcome, I always strive to do better!!

I'm working on a necron army similar to this set up myself, but I was just going to use the ME3 Geth Prime paint job for the entire army. I was tempted to do the army into the unit subdivisions like you did, but I couldn't decide which versions of the colors I liked best.

Incidentally, what did you use to make the blue tubing on the guns? I've never been all that successful at recoloring those things.

It was just the green cylinders they gave you, with a regal blue paint job, and sky blue highlights, it's not that difficult. And thanks!

Yeah, the idea came from the Deathmark heads, when I saw those, I was like, YUP! TOTALLY MAKING THEM GETH! And the fluff fits it, I guess. You could say this dynasty IS just sentient robots? I'm actually thinking about making another "Legion/Necron Overlord" and modeling him to look like Saren at the end of Mass Effect 1. Only a matter of time...

No, it's fine. I get what you're saying, it's a cool looking model, but it just doesn't fit with the theme. And like I said before, I model my army on theme, as opposed to stopping power. It's why our Guard army has only ONE Tank as opposed to two.

That's a pretty awesome idea. I had always wondered how to represent geth in 40k ever since I played the first mass effect. Necrons were the obvious choice but I also considered the tau as they have all the shooty that the geth have and I could use stealth suits to represent a unit of geth hunters.

The only problem with tau is that they are probably 2 squishy to be geth unless you take a minimum of fire warriors as geth warriors and load up on suits. Plus no kroot or vespid as they totally don't fit the theme.

I think your idea works better and I particularly like the green stuff flashlight heads!

:iconilliztrator:
ilLIZtrator Featured By Owner May 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks! I was actually thinking of making Covenant Tau. Then my brother and I made Codex UNSC, and started making Codex The Covenant, but we gave up on them after a while.

The Tau actually translate pretty perfectly to The Covenant, Kroot being Brutes, Vespid being Drones, Battlesuits and Broadsides being Elites and Hunters, and Fire Warriors being Grunts, with the vehicles being very much a hit all across the board.

Also plan on making an Imparial Guard/UNSC Marines army, since they are pretty similar as well!

rohansoldier Featured By Owner May 10, 2012
I would be interested to see the covenant tau army, as like you said they pretty much translate directly.

The troop types you said are an excellent fit and you can even fit in the prophets of truth (I think that's what they are called, not much of a halo fan tbh) by using ethereals or aun'va (although aun'shi was way cooler, shame they got rid of him).

Not sure what to use for the arbiter though, probably o'shovah cos the dawn blade could be his energy sword, but maybe a bit too big and beefy for the arbiter?

I love the idea of translating video game armies to 40K, it can make for some really characterful miniatures and armies.

I would most like to see the helghast from killzone as an imperial guard army (it is a shame the doctrines got removed as the grenadier and carapace armour doctrines would have fitted the helghast perfectly).

Also the locust from gears of war but I would probably use the ork codex to represent them, but without most of the vehicles as the Locust never really had them in the games.

I look forward to seeing your covenant tau, consider yourself watched!

Oh, well thanks! I might not actually model Covenant Tau, it was just a simple homebrew codex that I wanted to do, although I do wanna start a Tau army, if and when they get a new codex. Although the UNSC Imp Guard is something I'm gonna try to make, since that'll be easier, and I've been meaning to change them from Star Wars Stormtroopers to UNSC Marines and ODST's!

:iconrohansoldier:
rohansoldier Featured By Owner May 11, 2012
I will also be tempted to collect tau (again) if their next codex is decent as I had an army of them a few years back and found their complete emphasis on firepower and mobility a welcome change from some of the armies that rely on getting close and smacking your head in with a powerfist!

It seems to me that in a dark future of laser cannons and apocalyptic weaponry that can destroy worlds, the humble sword would be a bit obsolete, but I guess not!

I would like to have a read of your homebrew codex for the covenant when it is done. Would you mind linking to it for me on da?

Also pics of the UNSC imperial guard would be great!

Yeah sure. The UNSC IG hasn't started just yet. Still working on the Geth, but once they're complete, then I might move on to the UNSC Marines, since the Tau don't look like they'll be coming out anytime soon...

And sure, I'll send it your way...if we ever get to finishing it. We have this, Codex UNSC, Mass Effect the PnP RPG, and Halo the PnP RPG also in the works...so it might be a while @_@...

The Mass Effect RPG was just a supplement to the Star Wars RPG, just a few changes here and there, really. Biotics would work like the Force, and Tech skills I was still working on. And it's mostly just equipment and races, and only picking 1 of 6 classes...

That's pretty awesome, I really like Purple and White color combination. Maybe try using card stock to model the geth helmets, it would probably take longer than molding the helmets as I assume you've done, but it would keep them a bit more consistent. Still pretty impressive, the only thing confusing me is why the pilot is on backwards on the Ghost ark?
Reply
:iconilliztrator:
ilLIZtrator Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, like I said before, I'm just trying to make them Necrons that look like Geth, not Geth models out of Necron bits. That's why I used purely Necron models, and just gave them all green stuff mono-eyes, and cut off their lower jaw. I was thinking about giving them the two lower flaps on the sides of the head, but then I said no, for a more Necron feel. They're still suppose to be Necrons after all!

As for the Ghost Ark pilot, I flipped him backwards because I like the idea of the back being the front. And honestly, if you're gonna give me a hissy fit about which direction an OPEN-TOPPED VEHICLE points as I move it (since there are no specific places the hatches are) then "good game, it was fun," I'll pack up and just move on. Honestly, if the back is the front in my case, the only thing that it'll affect is my shooting from the 10 Gauss Flayers, otherwise, You don't gain any disadvantages at all, and that's how my logic went...

Yeah, it's actually why I stopped playing at my LGS. Everyone was tournament hungry, and if I wasn't WYSIWYG then they threw tantrums, and these were 40 year old men. It was really annoying.

I just like to model them, and roll lots of dice! So I'm not one to make the cheesiest broken lists, I just make lists of models I wanna make, or things that would fit the theme I'm going with.

I'm one of those types that play to have fun, not to win...
