First conversation

>Eliphas : Soulless automatons! You can not prevail against Chaos.

>Necron Lord : ...

>Eliphas : It...your soul is gone....I will destroy you...

Second conversation

>Eliphas :You come to your death, Necron. I will send you back to your tomb!

>Necron Lord : ...

>Eliphas : No...it can not be so.

Can anyone explain to me what the heck is going on between these two? One moment Eliphas says the Necrons are soulless and another he is surprised they don't have souls, short memory lose much?

And what's up with the second conversation? Eliphas really dropped the mental ball in that one.

>> No.20069697

If you call some a flaming faggot in anger, and then they then prove undoubtedly that they are a flaming faggot, you take a second to comprehend what just happened

>> No.20069737

So, Eliphas was surprised that Necron's don't actually have a soul. Explains the first part, since it seems like he's floundering, like he was expecting it to shout back at him. Doesn't much help the second part though.

>> No.20069757

I read it as Eliphas explaining himself.

>> No.20069766

Machines have no soul.

Do the Newcrons invoke the same sense of fear, I wonder.

>>"We are the most ancient empire to have ever existed. We broke and killed our gods when they ceased to be useful. We solved the scientific arts. We destroyed our only rival. We defeated multiple genetically-engineered species specifically designed to kill us all. And then we went to sleep because nothing was challenging anymore. Now we're awake again, and we want our empire back. Join us or die."
I don't know about you, but I'm shitting my pants. It's like the worst of HFY sung in reverse.

And Eliphas lost to this guy.

>> No.20069850

All of that IS nothing compared to the power of the Warp.

The C'tan were chumps in comparison to the almighty Chaos Gods.

>We solved the scientific arts

Except for the art of warpless FTL travel, you losers.

>> No.20069855

That's one of my favourite things about newcrons. Humanity is struggling constantly with the daemons born from the galaxy's excesses and the Necrons lean over and go "We had that problem once! We put them in boxes!" and then they swagger off to have their servants start levelling the planet so they can build the 11th hole on their new sector-wide golf course.

>> No.20069861

Thule one shotted the Necron Lord. I think he is capable enough to do the same to poor Eliphas.

>> No.20069864

BFG is still canon, dammit!
> because nothing was challenging anymore
except that's wrong. They went to sleep because they killed their gods and doing so fucked them over so hard they had to recover.

Inertialess drives, motherfucker. They can FTL just fine, thank you. I have no idea how it works, but it does.

>> No.20069888


Nah, they lost that in the new version. They just use the Webway, before that they used sleeper ships.

>> No.20069904

Shut up and enjoy webway travel.

>BFG is still canon, dammit!

Outdated material based on old retconned fluff.

>> No.20069912


Oh they still have it.

Warp based FTL is just better, larticularly if you include the webway.

>> No.20069915

I'm sad they got rid of Pariahs.

>> No.20069936


>> No.20069958

Pariahs aren't gone from the canon, just no longer a part of the bulk necron forces. They were the C'Tan's plaything, and since the C'tan got boxed, as >>20069855 put it, they aren't important.
Imagine you have a bike. It's simple to use, it's easy to understand, and it doesn't cost much to fuel. That's the 'slow-burning torch ships' that they use. Good for getting around, if slow.

Then you figure out the car. That's the inertialess drive ships. They have the ability to go faster than anything that came before, breaking what was thought to be a barrier like cars broke the speed of sound eventually. It's pretty good, and you use it for a bit and enjoy it.

After that, though, you find out how to make a fucking plane. ZOOM. You can go faster than you'd ever dreamed, crossing the entire planet in less than a day - the planet being the galaxy, in our metaphor. This is Webway/Warp FTL. You still use the car for going on day to day stuff, but when you need to go somewhere far and fast, you get on a plane.

>> No.20069962


Their lack of FTL tech is what fractured their vast Empire and made them lose the first war against the Old Ones.

The Necrons got FTL when the C'tan taught them how to use the webway.

>> No.20069976


No, the Inertia-less drives are gone. Necrons use the Webway exclusively for fast travel now.

>> No.20070056

Don't forget the Webway's defenses try to destroy/trap the Necron whenever they use it.

So it is not a sure thing that they will reach their destination.

He suffers from a short memory problem.
