I'd assume that it was some sort of luxurious product rendered from the fat of those who oppose the Emperor! Or the Ogryn version of the joke scene from Something about Mary.

Thanks for reposting/hosting it for ease. I think its best to consider the necron reawakening as like an old faucet that progresses from dry to drip to leak to full flow depending on the millennium.

I thought Trayzen was never asleep like the rest of the Necrons. He was just awake collecting nicknacks for billions of years.

Cato Sicarius, after force feeding Captain Ventris a copy of the Codex Astartes for having the audacity to play Deathwatch, chokes to death on his own D-baggery after finding Calgar assembling his new Eldar army.

New Thunder Warrior art? That's cool. With the (necron?) background image does that imply that this Thunder Warrior is alive thousands of years past his expiration?

Looks like he also has a standard bolter instead of a weird plasma gun with magazine and bolter muzzle gun.

They used a variety of weapons from lasguns early on to bolters standard latter on and likely other weapons upgraded as well.

Reading this thread, I think the most likely way you’d see official GW versions of Thunder Warriors would be a 30k version of Blackstone Fortress that would allow the sculptors to pull old designs like they did with that game. I could also see GW taking the Necromunda ruleset and porting it over to the Unification Wars to dig deeper into the lore around the techno-barbarians and the Thunder Warriors while giving the community significant opportunities for kitbashing like you see with that game.

But I can’t see the Thunder Warriors popping up in 30k proper since the game focuses on the major factions that fought in the war. That said, the Blackshields’ Wrought by War abilities that fall under the Gene Bulked Chymeriae category are probably the closest way you could play a Thunder Warriors-style force in 30k, so that’s where you could get some of that flavor into your forces.

I'd be ok with a one off boxed game personally if that's how we get just a handful or even a single official sculpt. YMMV.

I think a 30k verison of Blackstone Fortress with a single Thunder Warrior as a boss fight would be cool.
