I like how we have known the rumors for almost a month at this point and people are now just going "oh wow rage so cheesy so fucking stupid gay fluff 10/10 would Ward again".

Mat Ward, author of Codex: Necrons, defines the army as an 'elite shooty army'. Indeed, a quick glance over the Necron Wargear section will leave even the most stalwart Tau or Space Marines player green with envy. From the gauss flayer and particle caster to the soon-to-be-infamous tesla destructor and doomsday cannon, the Necron armoury is loaded with devastating weaponry that enables them to comfortably outshoot any opponent. And I haven't even mentioned the tachyon arrow yet...

If all the Necrons have different motives. WHY did they all agree to wake up at the same time?

Wouldn't it have been in the interest of a tomb world to awaken a million years prior to the others?

>> No.16769803

The overlords have personalities now, so they want different things. Trazyn collects antiques, Imothek wants all orks killed with lightning, destroyers in general want to EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE, and some just want the lesser races (everyone else) to show them the proper respect (ie hailing them as God-Kings and sacrificing their firstborn by flaying them alive). Most of them agree though that the galaxy is theirs.

But the C'tan at least gave them a reason (a poorly described and plotted out reason) to wage war and an overall motive that made them feel more like a sinsister force of bad guys (again, it was poorly executed but it was there all the same)

Now they're kinda fun, like dark eldar and orks... but in the same way they're rendered mostly inconsequential bystanders who just raid and pillage and whatever

You could practically take all three armies and stick them into a super giant 'codex: Xenos raiders' now.

Because that's what they are

>> No.16769826

>million years earlier

Funny you should mention that...that's part of Trazyn's fluff. He had unfinished business with Roboute Guilliman during the Heresy and in the White Dwarf narrative's ending teleports to the battlefield to tell Sicarius he's going to come to Macragge and take the primarch away from the Ultras.

Old Necron fluff and their appearences portrayed them as "some Necrons stir, and were killed". They were always shown to be less of a threat than even Orks, never an unified force capable of anything like, say, Tyranids. The C'tan tried to be Chaos gods but didn't come off as more convincing than DoW chaos lords.

It's quite certain that in the timeline section of the new codex alone we find much greater feats than whatever they accomplished in the old fluff.

Haven't Necrons always been an "elite shooty army"?

You're still going to see Destroyer/Monolith lists until the wise sages of the internets break the codex. As a Chaos player, I'm not worried, and still hate Grey Knights. I look forward to all the rage when my army gets updated next year, and everybody bitches about how cheaper Thousand Sons and deep striking Chaos Dreadnoughts are "broken".

I like the newcrons, but I kind of would have liked it more if they kept being incomprensible aliens. Expand on making them mysterious, terrifying and alien. Pic related, it's my favourite rendition of Necrons.

>> No.16769891

>>16769797 WHY did they all agree to wake up at the same time?

The vast majority want the natural order of things restored (ie a galaxy ruled by necrons), so even if they might not all agree on all the details they all set their alarm clocks to the same time so they could emerge in force and take things back form whoever they found running the show. For some reason though they didn't wake up all at once, but have been waking up every now and then over the last few centuries instead (and many still sleep), meaning that there wasn't any momentum to drag the more individualistic ones along. Time has taken a heavy toll on their infrastructure as well, leading to further fracturing, and thus further room for various overlords to get their own ideas about things.

>> No.16769919

At least the legs looks easy to lop off. They're the only thing that really bugs me about this model

What is it with GW and shitty implementation of dangly legs on vehicles lately?


>> No.16769920

I actually appreciate the direction they're taking with Necrons much more after reading that post.

Initially, like everyone else, I was like "Robots piloting robots? YO DAWG", but then I started to think, of there really was an army of ancient rogue AI in the galaxy, what would they be like?

They certainly wouldn't take a bipedal humanoid form so they can fight pitched battles with other humanoids? Why not be microscopic nanobots that can consume all matter like a plague, and can't even be seen, let alone fired at?

Essentially, Necrons at their core are the remnants of a living race. That explains their idiosyncrasies, their preference to fight with guns, shields and other weapons, the personality quirks of the new lords. It sure as hell explains the Flayed Ones. The Necrons are a race with a 64 million-year-old identity crisis, and that still permeates them in ways we hadn't previously realised.

That's always been the point. Necrons were once a biological civilization. In the old fluff it did not matter because they were slaves and made to look like skeletons because Nightbringer thought it was scary or something like that, but now it is very important.

It's not exactly the kind of arrangement most of them like, and they certainly aren't singularity transhumanists with full integration or anything like that.
