Nihilakh Dynasty Necron Lord #2 - Custom Conversion

Having painted my first Lord, I decided to go crazy and paint my second one.  I mean, what does an army with only 5 painted Troops need more of?  HQ choices!!!

Anyways, this one is a custom conversion.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  I used the Warhammer Fantasy Cairn Wraith model for inspiration.  This is the stock model from the GW website...

Games Workshop Cairn Wraith
I thought this would look really nice as a Necron Lord conversion.  From a fluff standpoint, I'm imagining that this Lord made a deal with a particularly crafty Cryptek who was able to make the Lord's necrodermis body a little more fluid.  In other words, his body is a constantly shifting mass of necrodermis that floats and flows through battle, cutting his opponent's down as he moves.

I'm really happy with how this turned out.
