It's pretty much like kicking an injured man while he's down, eh?

>624.M36 A Blade out of Time

>Although impossible to fix in time, this seems to be the first recorded instance where Cypher is seen carrying the C’tan phase knife – a weapon similar to the C’tan phase sword used by the Callidus Assassins. The blade of the knife can phase in and out of real-space by dimensional realignment, so it is capable of bypassing armour and protective fields. The knife was at some point lost in battle with the C’tan known as the Deceiver in the opening stages of the 13th Black Crusade, however, the battle occurred in the Warp and seems to have been subject to a strange loop in either the time continuum or reality itself. Cypher is most often seen without the blade, but true to its name, the knife occasionally phases back into being beneath his cloak.

They are bringing them back, so might as well.

I know but like you see everything they have done is appearing again in the new lore.

The Deceiver giving Abaddon his sword, and as see above the fight with Cypher although with minor alteration. I can't wait for the Dyson Sphere and the Dragon of Mars to feature again in the lore. The C'tan still did everything (In Shard form though).

Also calling the C'tan cartoony? Did you read anything about the Newcron Lords? People loved them because they were over-the-top and hammy traits known of cartoon villains. If you criticize the C'tan for that, you should do the same for the Newcron Lords and the majority of the villains in the setting.

>> No.29526462

The difference is the old codex pretended they were SOOPER SERIOUS despite the fucking Master of Melodrama waving his golden dick everywhere, and the Newcrons don't even bother to hide being undead Snidely Whiplash.

But the 5the Necron Codex was created with 6e in mind. It's technically a 6e codex.

I love newcrons. So much fun to be had with dynasty creating.
My dynasty is run by a reasonable committee of 12 Praetors and one very unreasonable Phaeron.
Imagine the UN. Then imagine that they're trying to negotiate and coordinate strategy with DOCTOR DOOM literally busting in at random intervals screaming death and calls for war. The door to enter their decision chamber has hinges at the bottom so they can just close it after the Phaeron is done.

-Starting the Vore War between the C'tan
-Screwing the Nightbringer by giving his enemies the location of his Food Ship
-Giving Abaddon his sword
-Fighting Cypher
-Medusa V. Punishing the Herald of the Storm.
-Uplifting an alien race from savagery and then culling them because they disappointed him by regressing back to savagery when the Imperium invaded their world
-Being the hidden hand behind the Gothic War (according to Eldrad)

No idea why he fought cypher but it was mentioned he fought something that was described as a golden metal figure etc.
Man I am getting a bit grumpy right now, I miss the days when gw didn't SPELL EVERYTHING OUT.
It left room for interpretation ad kept the fluff vague enough so that not everbody is loosing hands (Helbrecht,Marneus).
Man, good old times.
I miss my build it yourself kit with IG, SM and the many many chaos lists in 4e.
