At this point there is no reason to suspect Necron tech is powered any differently than any other tech. It is science, so presumably they have generators, etc. In addition, in "Caves of Ice", and Orks shot hits the power pack on a gauss flayer and blows it up, so clearly they still have power packs.

Compatible with tau...I'm thinking not. Necron tech is way more advanced than Tau tech, a Tau tech user offered Necron tech would simply switch, and a Necron has no need for Tau tech. Its like asking if modern technology is compatible with Dark Ages technology. They both spring from the same root, but one is generations more evolved.

we have no idea how necron tech works. Currently it is incompatible with tau tech. If in a strnage situation a necron did not teleport back to its tomb, Tau scientists might be able to rverse engineer necron wepaonry and adapt Tau version of the guns for themselves. Nothing like that is going to happen though, it's jsut too unlikely.

the cyclic ion blaster comes from space dwarf tech (what's that race called again?)

Demiurg, I think.

Anyways if you really, really want an answer, just say "The C'tan made them work."
Common fluff for necrons :

Hokay, let's stop that now before we turn this into an anti-necron thread. (Normally for any other race this wouldn't be likely, but me being in disdain of necron fluff myself, the slightest stimulant might set me off)

Please excuse the nobish(non-green-skin ;D) question, but why do people dislike the Necrons in particular?

And how is their fluff, as I can't do Wargamer's quote justice, but in body, it was "Necron fluff is based on raping everyone else's in the universe."(I can't open another window to do the search, so I'll have to find the quote word-for-word later.

And just a question, I'm not trying to incite a flame-war

Ok, sorry Mongoose.

From their Gauss weapons stripping down particles I would imagine the actual work is on a subatomic level similar to melta weapons. Albeit without the two part injection, perhaps it works by creating a field around its target then introducing a substance which causes the particles to break apart.

As for being compatible, I would guess not, as everything disappears, so the chances of even being able to get some gauss weaponry is extremely unlikely. Also remember that gauss tech is old, very old, which would make it harder to modify it to work with Tau tech.

*Coughs* Guass guns do not flay flesh *Coughs*

No, not even Necron weapons are original which is rather annoying. Anyhow I personally believe that you cannot reverse engineer Necron equipment because it is made from the same stuff as the 'Crons and hence 'alive'
