Wh40K: Necron Vs DE Battle by StugMeister Wh40K: Necron Vs DE Battle by StugMeister
Once again I was commissioned to paint the two prizes for Epic-UK's Grand Tournament this year.

Painted in Photoshop CS1, took me around eight hours I think.

Oh! ouch! Looks like the necrons might lose this... IDK maybe their pyramid might have some arcane surprises in store for the eldar revers

Somehow I don't see this working out well for the Necrons, compared to how they would trash an Imperial planet.

I think if the Dark Eldar don't manage to overwhelm the Necrons quickly, then they will be whittled down in a battle of attrition.

There is now way in hell the Dark Eldar are going to survive a full onslaught of Necrons. They can only beat the shit out of some crappy PDF, but definitely not a fully armored Imperial Guard regiments.

Agreed.

Maybe it's a raid-gone-bad?

From bad to worse. The Necrons are much more superior to the Eldar in terms of technology, numbers, and resilience.

If it was any one else, the Dark Eldar might stand a chance, but friggin' NECRONS? Yeah... the Dark Eldar are gonna get raped. BIG TIME. Ironic, isn't it? Well, SERVES THEM RIGHT! :)

Very interesting composition
You used kinda classic presentation of the battle but it looks great

I generally don't go for the classic presentation of battle when painting 40K, but this one kinda needed it.

Awesome work though its amazing in every way. I thought of something though why do the Eldar look like the Necrons so much armor wise?
Reply

StugMeister Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The dark eldar have very spikey armour, with lots of integral blades. I suppose they are reminiscent to Necron technology in a way.

My theory was since the Eldar met the Necron so early in their history they adopted parts of their culture on accident.
