How about some Necron Rumors?


Release Date

They will be released during 2011. Most likely Summer 2011.

Rules & Codex

- Written by Matt Ward
- Complete overhaul of rules
- Much more "Immortal" theme, less "Terminator" ([email protected] says: I took this to mean more organic based and asked, and was told "no, not organic, they will still be undying machines")
- WBB (at least as we know it) is out. It will be changed or replaced by FNP
- Phase out has been changed, possibly working for individual units instead of whole army
- There will be several types of Lords. With different wargear options and special rules
- Gauss weapons rules will be changed, possibly to rending
- The forces are going to change in the FOC a bit
- Flayed ones will have new rules changes but no new model
- Warriors will become one of the more all-around usefull troops
- Whole army will benefit from Stubborn universal rule
- "psychic power" -type upgrades for some units. These are actually "tech upgrades" with the same or similar rules as psychic powers.


Multi part plastic kits:
- Immortals. Immortals are on a large base; they are redesigned as larger, bulkier and more dynamic.
- Spyders. Spyders have 3 different builds on 60mm base.

The best suggestion I've heard so far is that it works for squads and isn't automatic.
IE your 10 man warrior squad loses 5 guys and has to roll after every additional wound to phase out.

>> No.12222670

What's awesome is that this codex is going to be really good but butthurt necron players will still bitch about it because they object to the army having more character than a clusterfuck of shitty terminator references. "Waah waahh WBB is gone and replaced with a less stupid mechanic with a less stupid name? BUT NOW OUR ARMY WILL LOSE ALL ITS CHARACTER"

The new immortals focus is sick. I'm pleased. I trust Mat with the rules side of things although I'm sure the fluff will be very silly and the new special characters backstories will be retarded.

Since the Necrontyr have been fighting Eldar since before the human race even existed, I predict no less than three avatars will be slaughtered in the new codex.

>> No.12222689

Seeing as Lord isn't a vehicle, that isn't too different from what necrons are now.
Also, WBB can be more resilent then FnP

>> No.12222719

WBB lets the model die BEFORE it gets a chance to hit back. You also don't have to worry about units coming back and filling up squads you had depleted.

It gets even more worrisome if Res Orb and Tomb Spyder continue to work roughly the same as they used to. FNP rolls that you can't negate with power weapons and krak missiles? Fuck that mess.

>> No.12222728

Except you actually have to put the lord WITH the unit you want to deep strike. Plus, isn't the teleport item like 60 points? So it's not different except for being completely different.

>> No.12222735


Necrons and Blood Angels are BFFs.

>> No.12222748

>"Waah waahh WBB is gone and replaced with a less stupid mechanic with a less stupid name? BUT NOW OUR ARMY WILL LOSE ALL ITS CHARACTER"
Since WBB places heavy emphasis on squad cooperation (in form of necessitating the proximity), it certainly forms the character of the army, you know

>> No.12222755

No plastic flayed ones? This is a disaster.

>> No.12222847


Fuck off Omegon. No one likes you anyway.

Really though "phalanx" is not "army character" all you're doing is trying to retroactively justify a shitty rule that makes you knock over your carefully painted miniatures or fiddle with counters every turn. It's a pain in the ass and a dumb mechanic. Justifying it retroactively with crap about squad deployment further shoehorns Necrons into their already cliched role of "space robot zombie horde" which only a few dedicated but vocal gamers even like. Furthermore it seems like those gamers, the aforementioned whine necron players, demand that their playstyle be the only one for Necrons. It should be an option certainly, if you want to play a necron phalanx, that's awesome, but it's not the be-all and end-all of the race and obsessing over WBB and other bullshit just takes away from the experience for the rest of us while not actually gaining much of anything for its proponents.

>it certainly forms the character of the army, you know
"Squads fighting closely together" is NOT what the necrons are about. It might be something they do, and at the moment there are shitty rules in place that require you to deploy with redundancy but it is no more a part of the character of the army than the fact that some armies' units use transports or are strength 4. Jesus fuck.

>> No.12222889

> > only a few dedicated but vocal gamers

>> No.12222903


>> No.12222927

Stop assuming thatt they'll be just as good as other psychic abilities. I don't see everyone bitching about how Warlocks don't need psychic tests to use their powers. You know why? Because it doesn't matter because they're compensated.

>> No.12222954

I'm glad that people are so into the hobby, but when given the following options

1. The army must be what I say and only what I say and nothing else because it is totally characterful for the army to be faceless and have no character. They should all be a horde of identical robots and never have options for something else.

2. Options to make an army that is a faceless horde of robot zombies AND ALSO something new that isn't exactly that same damn thing.

I can only conclude that the people who want option A are complete dorks who refuse to actually think about the choice. Unfortunately this puts me closer to giving a shit than I would like and that is what I resent them for.

>> No.12222981


Then don't give them pseudo-Psyker powers. The entire backstory of these guys is that they have no psykers, want no psykers and are working to destroy the possibility of psykers by cutting off the Warp from the real universe.

Making them vulnerable to anti-psyker gear is just insulting.

It's also worth mentioning that this is all supposition, how these tech upgrades will play in game hasn't been mentioned. They might have some limitation compared to psyker powers to compensate for no Warp Peril or ability to nullify them. They might also be horribly broken unstoppable abilities so everyone else gets something to bitch about.

Captcha : teachers, whogage

>> No.12222987

For that matter, maybe this "psychic necron tech" is actually just their version of a psychic hood. It interacts with the psyker rules but is in no way psychic.

Or maybe it works exactly like a normal psychic power and runes of warding can stop it. That's a little silly I guess but it's way way less silly than half the crap in 40k's fluff or rules so I don't really care. I'm just glad to see hints that Necrons will be evolving past the faceless robot wall. It's a cool mental image, and a cool part of the army, but I don't want EVERY necron army I face to be the same damn one. This new stuff is good, even if a little illogical.

>> No.12222991

I expect they'll be activated like a normal psychic power but be unable to be nullified. But we'll see.

Does anyone have that one picture of the Necron in Terminator armour?

Avatars have only been around since the fall though.

>> No.12223310

yep, next summer will probably be a mix of crappy necron rule troll threads, actual necron discussions, new necron models and army painitng/conversion threads, and insecure people bitching and moaning about certain drawbacks and advantages necrons will have.

along with the usual crap as well.

Why the fuck is Ward allowed to write 50% of all new codexes, by the way? What the shit man?

Oh I plan on getting about 2000 points of new Dark Eldar. And if I like the Necrons I'm ordering at least one of those Tomb Stalkers as well as at least 1500 pts of Necrons.

But if you think I'm paying GW for about 2500 pts of each? As well as two more Tomb Stalkers? You're out of your mind.

>I mean, how am I suppose to ignore the monolith and C'tan now?

You ignore the C'tan by not playing Apocalypse (or, failing that, staying more than 12'' away from either of them) and you ignore the Monolith by staying away from it as well.

Also, Demolisher cannons.

Grey Knights
Sisters of battle or Tau

Nope. Grey Knights are pretty low-tier, they may come after the Ork/Tau point, but we haven't really planned that far ahead.
