So yeah the rumors were true. I don't know about you guys but it looks beautiful. The plates of armor around it make it look very Necron-y.

Step in the right direction.

Necrons have always been the army with the least imagination put into them. They're immortal killbots, they could look like ANYTHING... but until now, your choices have been robot skeleton, beetle, or robot skeleton stuck to beetle.

Centipedes aren't a HUGE improvement, but at least it's something.

Still, any three random people from this board could design a more interesting army, even sticking within the "army of immortal robots" restriction. Seriously, it's an idea with enormous potential, the way GW has failed to take advantage of it is pretty fucking sad.

The Necron Tomb Stalker, the model spawned from a Forge World drunken orgy, the model rumored in the Medusa 5 campaign, the alternative to the Monolith and Tomb Spyder.

It's a Necron CC hit and run monster.

Haven't heard of this. Are you serious? I love the Deceiver and run him plus my Destroyer Lord to wreck the house in vehicular and infantry combat. That's bullshit.

>> No.12209610

>C'Tan go bye-bye next codex if rumors are true

No, if the rumours are true, C'tan are moved to being fluff-only, and Necron players instead can take incarnations/manifestations of a C'tan in the form of a Necron Lord that's rebuilt themselves in the image of one of the Star Gods.

It's like taking a Bloodthirster instead of a Khorne himself.

>> No.12209627

That sounds like total bullshit to me. In fact, I hear that [spoilers] because the Emperor was killed by all the Uthwe psykers, the Imperium is getting a legion of fucking Super Space Marines, Chaos is launching an all out assault as well as Tyranids, and the Void Dragon is waking up because the Emperor was using a portion of his power to keep it asleep.

I want to rage all the more at Ward's Faggotry. They need to fire that asswipe.

I understand that smurfs were "the thing" because of the massive collection GW had at one point back in the day representative of an entire company (?). But because they are the easily recognized chapter doesn't mean that Ward needs to have nergasms over them enough that he has to write massive faggotry infested stories about Ultramarines.

>Chapters in the second category are disciples who owe their genetic inheritance to another Primarch, but follow the Codex Astartes as keenly as their divergent heritage allows. While primarily composed of successor Chapters, this group also includes several Chapters of the First Founding - notably the Imperial Fists, White Scars and Raven Guard. These Chapters can never be Ultramarines, for their gene-seed is not that of Roboute Guilliman. Nevertheless, they will ever aspire to the standards and teachings of the great Primarch.

>The third and final group are aberrants; Chapters who,
through quirk of gene-seed, mutation or stubbornness,
eschew the Codex Astartes in favour of other structural and combat doctrines. Some, such as the Blood Angels and their successors, strive to be worthy of Guilliman's legacy, but their recalcitrant gene-seed drives them ever further from it.
Others, such as the Space Wolves and the Black Templars, remain stubbornly independent, looking to their own founder's ways of war and caring little of how they fare in the eyes of others. These aberrant Chapters were always few in number and their presence diminishes further with each passing decade, for their gene-seed is no longer the source of fresh Chapters.

"You marines should understand us. We are what you seek for yourselves."

"You are abominations! Souless machines! I serve the-"

The Necron Lord cut the Marine's reply short with a bolt from his staff.

"We are perfect. Do you know how we have attained perfection?"

"By becoming slaves to your false gods." The Marine braced himself for another bolt of green lightning, but none came.

"Yes. What you call them doesn't matter. They are Gods. We attained perfection by discarding everything that was in ourselves that did not serve the purpose of our masters, and the purpose of our race."

The Necron paused and jabbed the butt of it's staff through the rend in the fallen marine's armor, and into his suppurating wound. The Marine looked back in unflinching defiance and the Necron Lord gave a slight nod of it's expressionless face before withdrawing it's gore caked weapon.

"You have already abandoned much of your humanity, abandoned the pain and weakness and fears and doubts of your kind. But you lack the strength of will to keep moving forward."

The marine stayed silent.

"We are here to teach that will to those who will learn."

Fluff in the 5th edition rulebook paints Necron Lords as still having personalities and fragments of memory - but they're often completely insane due to how long they've been active. It's possible that a Necron Lord would retain enough of its mind to form alliances and work alongside other armies, or be so erratic and crazy that it'll just do whatever with little reason behind its actions.

Of all the terrible fluff Ward's written, this isn't actually so bad.
