The Necron are an ancient warrior race. Millions of years before man they fought each other, then The Old Ones to gain supremacy over the universe.
Realizing they could not beat the power of The Old Ones and The Warp, the Necrons allied with the C'tan and encased their spirits in bodies of living metal.
In the process the Necrons lost their souls, but they are now a near immortal race of mechanoids hell bent on ruling the galaxy again.
It's a great back story which in my mind is let down a little by the miniatures we have for them.
Yes they look a bit like the Terminator, but it's more their pose - they are bent over and subservient - far from the proud ancient race who have no other objective than domination.
So while I was making my first Necron, I decided to fiddle around a bit and see if I could fix them...
I am not a photographer and despite using a tripod, there are some dodgy pictures below.

The jaw is too long and won't sit properly, so I cut off a piece of sprue and cut it to shape.
This is then glued on the top. Check the height as you go.
+ + Step Three + +
Cut this flat so it will sit on the new neck you created with the piece of sprue.
(Sorry about the blurry picture - must be a bit shaky today)

The Necron on the left looks more menacing to me! The other guy looks like he wants a treat of is servile in some way. YOU'RE AN IMMORTAL METAL WARRIOR - BE COOL MAN!

He's not servile! He is the spear tip of the Necron Empire.
No one's going to tread on him!!
Think this is a good quick fix, or have you got a better one you can share?
