Painted Miniature-Review No. I: Necron Lord

Welcome to the 5th Dimension!

There are a lot of amazingly painted, converted or sculpted miniatures out there. Sometimes we just don`t see them. Maybe it`s because they are not published at CMON or not showen in any of the big forums. Maybe you are just looking for other criterias while taking a look through different galleries. That`s why I am going to pick one of those each week to present those to you.

This article is the first out of a (hopefully) weekly line about painted miniatures. I`ll pick a painted miniature each week out of the web which is interesting in any point for me and will write a little review with my point of view about it added with some informations about the artist.

You are always invited to send me pictures and a description of a miniature you would like to see here. Send this by eMail to

    Painted Miniature Review No. I 
- GW Warhammer 40k: Necron Lord -

The first in line is one of the new Warhammer 40k Necron Lords, painted by dargo000:

    About the Artist 

Dargo000 aka Slawomir is a talented painter from poland. On his website you`ll find a gallery, a small shop for accessories for your bases and his painting-service. Feel free to take a closer look, there are several nice works inside his own dimension!

    Why do I`ve picked THIS miniature? 

It`s not the paintjob itself which makes me thinking about this miniature. As I`ve seen this Necron at cmon my eyes were caught by the big energyball. For me something new I`ve never seen before. Just the right thing for the first review, isn`t it?

    Concept & Thoughts 

At first there`s the big (5th) dimension-ball which catches your eyes for a while. It`s modular, so the Lord itself could be unmounted for gaming purposes.

This sphere is made of a simple ping pong ball, filled with stuff and prepared to be ready for the gaming base on top of it. The yellowish / green lightning on it representing the power inside.

The used color scheme of classic metal, rare gold parts and green is nice and must be a good choice for a gaming army. I can really imagine how a bunch of Necronwarriors are looking in this scheme. Sadly there`s no real focus. My eyes are wandering up and down, from left to right without finding a place to calm down.
The miniature itself is painted in an average / higher tabletop-quality supposed to be sold at the big bay.


I hope that I am able to show you some inetresting works which will inspire you for any further project. Please let me know what you are thinking about this kind of review - I am thankful for every hint I could get to improve this line (or to bury it ;)

Watch out for the big "Motivate yourself"-article and first colored pictures of my King Maulg conversion.

And now let us flow in the 5th Dimension and discover new lands!



  1. From me thumbs up Arne for this brilliant idea! And indeed a really cool Miniature. Watch out and good hunting for your 'Painted Miniature Review No.2'

  2. Hey Phil - thank you for your comment. I am glad that someone likes it. Number 2 is in progress right now.

  3. SomeONE (!?) Make that Two! I am an avid necron collector and that looks bloody amazing! I think I may even un-ceremoniously steal that concept for a few of my lords.
