I dont think warriors will get something like a chain cannon. GW said new warriors will have a new weapon option, it will be stronger, but shorter range, its was called gauss something. I guess this means something like S5 and 18" range ? I also dont think it will be one gun for 10 models, it will be available to every model.

seems to me that GW is really pushing this set to have a brutal short range encounter. the optimist in me hopes this is because the new terrain rules are being jiggered to make this EXTREMELY viable

Opinions are not facts please don't confuse the two

I have a very strong suspicion the winged blurry figure will be a new Nightbringer ("Angel of Death" version).

Interested in the new destroyer model and whatever those tripods are. Not thrilled at all with the warriors, I'll keep my old plastic rod ones, thanks.

It never ends well

I like the move towards the sci-fi horror angle rather than "we ripped off terminator". My issue now is the other units won't match and still look factory fresh.

It looks like one of the warrior units in the leaked pictures are all armed with the short range gun. It makes sense as gw have done the same with most of their newer troop units.

Also I hope they give necron warriors a meele profile for their Gauss Flayers. I mean. They have giant axe-bayonets on them that do nothing. Just a +1S or -1AP would be enough.


That would make units nearly invincible. 20 rolls failed? Lol. So basically kill points would either be denied fully or necrons leak them like hell

I can't really make out anything weapon like on it. If he's there just to baby sit the scarabs, and is a new awesome Spyder, that'd be.. awesome.

It does resemble that other walker with Doomsday-cannon-for-head though, bit clearly smaller. Hopefully a new class of weaponry that comes in a variety of sizes and options.

Tripod dudes are awesome as it gives a lot more design space for Necrons, anyone complaining about "damaged" Warriors hasn't realized literally every Necron player has done that to some of their dudes, and more importantly their faces are basically the same and you're using a blurry pic to say they're weird.

Yeah, in the lore the Warriors pretty much got the worst bodies, so their regeneration and durability isn't anywhere near the nicer bodies. They can accumulate damage like that over time, even though they are still regenerating.

Is the line between "really a Necron player" and "really not a Necron player" whether one has a Ghost Ark? 'Cause I'm not really a Necron player but did buy some stuff to put together in boredom, and I do have a Ghost Ark.

Because Ghost Arks are the core Necron Unit that no one can do without?

I played Necrons quite seriously in 3rd, 4th and a bit of 5th, so you're wrong twice. And I never liked the Ghost Keel model to begin with.

...or it could be that he doesn't like the model? Ghost Arks are not an essential model, and are also a pain in the arse to build and paint.
I find it quite understandable if a Necron player doesn't want to bother with that poorly designed nonsense.

Neither did I.
That said, decrepit necrons aren't anything new. Iirc, the 3rd ed codex showed a diorama of some.

I generally like the new models having some battle damage on them. It makes them a little more creepy.

The tripod Skorpehk models I'm not sold on. They look neat, and will be striking to have on a table i'm sure. But they have no place in the army at the moment, as far as I can tell. We have no transports, and Wraiths exist.
