|Comments|| The Necron Destroyer kit is a nice little kit that can be put together quickly and easily. The review I'm writing this in response to is a good one that covers all the basic points.
One thing that was NOT a problem was the decal set. I've no idea why the previous reviewer gave up on them and/or recommends doing the markings yourself. I did three of these kits (as I actually play the game) and used the decals extensively without any problem at all. They look quite sharp.
Here's how I did my decals for these kits:
First of all, they're pale gold. This might or might not be a problem depending on the overall colour you chose for your kit. Because my kits were base coloured in gold (Vallejo Old Gold, actually) I applied black patches to the areas that would get decals. This worked to bring out the contrast very well and looked quite sharp next to the gold. When the paint was dry I brushed on a clear gloss coat and let that dry before decalling. I applied the decal, top coated with Solvaset (which I vastly prefer to micro sol and set) and let dry. After the decal was dry it got another coat of gloss clear to seal it in and a satin coat over the entire kit for protection during gaming. That's it!
Enjoy your Necrons, and happy model building!
