Default Necrons

Just got some Necron rumours from a Blueshirt today.

Tying in with my (and everyone else's) thoughts from the WH40K 5th Ed book about the lack of C'tan, there will be no C'tan in the new codex.

The Nightbringer and the Deceiver will return as Datasheets, how they *should* be on the 40k battlefield - they will be 1500pts each and will be able to smack around Titans, as befits a God.

Next year they will also release a new C'tan - and it will be the Outsider, because the Void Dragon is the Machine God.

Discuss =)

No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

There will be no C'tan in the new codex, but will the back story for them remain the same?

I think being able to attack titans is pretty awesome, I always thought that for gods the C'tan were pretty lacking but I always thought that was because they were bound by their necrodermis which diminished their power. Not to mention the only anti-titan weapon the Necrons have is the pylon which is a giant turret, not really on equal ground with a titan. I guess the C'tan will be exclusive to apocalypse only now, but at least people will stop nagging us Necron players about having cheesy units.

I wonder if they will still use the same models? I mean if they do titans are going to be harassed by these small models. I foresee a lot of inappropriate jokes from Necron players in the future about how size doesn't matter :P

I think it could be cool, but since I don't like playing apocalypse (costs too much and battles are unrealistic) I think my Nightbringer is going to be collecting a lot of dust...

Don't suppose anything was said about new models to replace the C'tan or whether necrons are getting anything new? I seriously considered playing necrons before deciding against them based on the meager choices you have when fielding an army.

All sounds great.

The C'tan in Apocalypse sounds much better, as they actually get rules that befit a god. And I will stop hearing how the other gods suck in comparison to the C'tan because they can't be used in normal games from a certain fanboy near me.

Great! ;D
C'tan were totally out of place in normal 40k.
Gods? Being killed by Lascannons?

That sounds pretty cool. The C'tan are much better suited to Apocalypse.

I think that gods do not seem appropriate in 40k unless it was like a weak barley worshiped ramen god or something.
<Wargamer[TO]> - I figure it should go boom by spirit of the rules

To be honest, I dont think the Ctan have ANY place in 40k no matter what. Apocolypse, Epic, what have you.

Now, if the Monolith will get a decent nerf bat smacking then...

Tofu gods are much more deadly. :

Honestly, this sounds a bit more fitting of the Necrons. Apparently, GW decided to put their good codex writers and charge of the Necron codex and move the fanboys who wrote the last Necron dex to the Space Marines. : (No offense to either party intended).

Still, it would be pretty cool to be able to face off against a player who just spent hundreds of dollars on a Titan with your $12.00 Nightbringer and toast it in close combat. ;D
