New Necrons

Post by Nailz94 on Wed May 05, 2010 7:44 pm

Just took a look round WarSeer and news on the Necron update. We still do not know yet when they are released but here are some of the rumours:

There will supposedly be 3 tiers of Lord in a similar vein to the Necron background section of the Apocalypse book. Each tier will supposedly have more options as you go up. The top tier is rumoured to be the C’Tan infused, or simply mad version of the Lord, keeping the C’tan models useable in regular 40K.

Some say there is the possibility of a "Spyder Lord", although this is likely just mutant wishlisting.

There was some talk of C’Tan replacing a normal Lord mid-battle

Some say the C'Tan will become apocalypse only, possibly getting Forge World models. This would differentiate them from the C’Tan infused or Mad Lord that thinks it’s a C’Tan.

Some say we can expect to see Named Lords such as those that appeared in the Medusa V campaign background.

"We'll Be Back" is rumoured to either receive a major overhaul or to be replaced by Feel No Pain. This is rumoured to be for game speed reasons. The benefits and drawbacks of this change have been widely discussed.

There are vague rumours that most if not all units in the army will receive a +1T boost.

There are even vaguer rumours of a potential drop to 4+ Armour Save

The Gauss Rule is rumoured to be change. The most common rumour to this is that Gauss will not receive the usual -2 on the auto-glance, but instead only a -1 on a glance, effectively giving them the same result as they currently have. Some people have guessed that Gauss will simply be replaced with Rending, although many others believe this is unlikely. No firm rumours have emerged yet either way.

Necron Warriors are rumoured to be 20ish points (possibly 22) each with T5. They will also supposedly get some form of Grenade.

Some say Warriors and Immortals will get Slow and Purposeful or possibly even Relentless.

It is rumoured that there will be at least one more troop choice coming from either a rearranged FOC or possibly a brand new unit.

It is rumoured that one or more new units is being developed

There will possibly be new types of scarabs. Builder scarabs for repairing friendly units, and combat scarabs for… combat.

It has been said that the Monolith will go up to 300 points

There has been some talk of a new vehicle. What this is unclear, with many people suspecting something “smaller” than a Monolith such as the Pylon or Obelisk.

I do hope that We'll Be Back is taken out. It takes too long in a game.

Indeed, or made into something more...... manageable like +1 T or Feel no Pain

Interesting... I'd heard rumors that Warriors were being toned down instead of being buffed up, and Feel no Pain would replace We'll be Back.

Aye, either feel no pain, or that rule in the guard codex "send in the next wave".

The warscythe will inevitably get nerfed to a power weapon and the staff of light buffed up to the ignore all saves we should also expect a necron titan called the tomb stalker. The ctan won't be removed as far as i know the void dragon is included in the new codex

Do you know how big the void dragon is supposed to be?!

FUCKING HUGE!!!!

It would make more sense to have the Outsider.

Outsider is trapped in a dyson sphere. Getting him out would mean advancing the storyline. Never gonna happen.

I think two void dragons battling would be full of the win but the c'tan is omnissiah so I think it might win
