A good sign of a well-crafted fictional character is when you can tell it is them purely through their dialogue. One day, one day Your Warriors should be your objective holders or mid line support, while your Immortals should be at the forefront capturing contested objectives or taking the fight to the enemy better done with Anrakyr’s upgrades.

None of the various Dynasties seem to be working as a single organism save for some rare exceptions, instead pursuing their own goals and ambitions away from the rest of their race. When they are beaten, it is often down to either better tactics, zeal or simple sheer weight of numbers opposing them.

The Artwork There is very little in the way of new artwork here in terms of units or character pieces. As a result, this leaves a fair degree of mystery behind them at work, and it does try to at least enforce the fact that they have been weakened, but can still pimp-slap entire worlds if they get loose.


Really, really, really good. Use both Troops choices. Deep within the darkness of the void, ancient tomb worlds stir once more to life and the Necron race claws its way towards the stars. I consider Necrons as 7tg Pokemon, with their entire culture revolves around the C’tan and maintaining their empire and bringing rouge C’tan Shards to heel.

The actual staging of the codex flows far better than most cases, with events flowing from one segment to the next.

Your boys will be incredibly hard to shift no matter what you do with them; you will likely never be tabled, even against other tournament-grade armies. Also for players that really do love to drink their opponents’ delicious tears, necrons have the largest number of troll-tastic units out of any of the currently of released codices.

But means I havevto buy more models. This isn’t some demand for deep characterisation or even detailed, complex storytelling. The new artworks have been used more to outline some of the strengths mentioned above, such as the cultural meaning behind some bodies.


Hopefully on the day of release Let’s get the obvious issue out of the way first: Remember how the Wardex explained that the entire operations of a Dynasty was essentially split into a whole ton of different little nodes that all connected to each other? Anyone claiming you won “because you used FW” is just a sore loser. Anrakyr isn’t all that great anymore, and Trazyn is now garbage, thanks to them not giving him objective secured and removing his ability to take over Lychguard bodies do you REALLY want to be losing your fully decked out Overlord just to bring Mr.

This means that a good roll can lead to a squad of Guardsmen being easily eradicated or a mob of Gaunts being chopped in half without thinking.

Mikael added it Aug 11, As for Black Library novels, I read both of the major novels involving the new necrons. Even taking the two examples you cited still ends with the same results. Philip rated it really liked it Nov 14, Berkay added it Feb 04, The Necrons are a particularly difficult one to deal with in this case, as most of their releases of the past two editions were skipped in reviews.

Given the expansionist objectives of the Necron Dynasties, given how many new Tomb Worlds are awakening, this is a staggering misstep on the codex’s part. Warriors are dependable and you can have many of them. A little later reply covering a point I already went over because I just realized something about it: If you know examples or articles of where they have been shown to have distinct weaknesses then please feel free to respond with them.

Lychguard are alright in larger games when you have a combat Overlord who needs an escort Trazyn, Obyron, and Anrakyr are good for this and as tempting as the Warscythes are, the Sword and Shield is usually the better call. I think the best rules are ones that meet the old codex’s halfway, but the new flyer rules completely skip past the defences the old codex’s had against them and that is why they are so overpowered now.

That and when they have not been killed off in their sleep, of course. Furthermore they have Stealth but lose the ignoring terrain goodness of Wraiths. I completely agree, I mostly like the new book with the exception of what they did with the C’tan, and they could fix this very easily without doing the type of rewrite you’re calling for, just have a C’tan regain its memories, or fuse multiple shards together.

They get an Str D hellstorm and 12″ 18 if u splurge for more move. To focus their efforts almost entirely upon a handful of units at once rather than having the option to ignore them once they fall below half strength in favour of more pressing forces. Before their relentless advance civilisations crumble and armies fall, the burning cities of their enemies reflected in the cold, glittering eyes of this ancient menace.


I just want you to know, since I don’t want a huge comment string, anything I don’t reply to I don’t have a big problem with, and can see your side of the issue, so with that in mind: Due to the new hull points system, glancing hits strip off hps without rolling on the damage result table.

Or you could just ignore all of the above and go for the shiny new Forgeworld goodies, analyzed more in detail overhead. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Necrons is an expansion book for the 7th Edition of Warhammer 40, Ok, they are not that utterly bad, just mediocre, particularly when compared with everything else in the codex.

Marc added it Jul 12, Furthermore, unlike the previous incarnation, Games Workshop has gone out of its way to show necron forces being permanently destroyed, shut down and lost irreplaceable elements of their forces. Usually, but they can give you some needed mobility in mid point matches!

This is not to mention the thousands of Xodex Worlds encountered so far where the necron occupants of their tombs have awoken brain-dead and without life. Except not play Decurion and learn to take a loss or two.

All right, I’m writing this several hours later because while at work, I realized something about one of these points, number 4, less ham, more personality, this can be excused as one of Matt Wards biggest problems, he never likes writing for more than one faction, and almost every necron named character is from the same dynasty, the only one that definitely isn’t is Trazyn the Infinite, which is why he stands out so much anrakyr and szeras are debatableit’s the same problem Ward had when making the space marine book where almost every character was an Ultramarine, I’ve said before that I don’t think the necrons need a do over, and I still stand by that, I think they need an expansion into the different dynasties.
