Default What would you like to see in the next Necron Codex (models included)

Hi all!

This topic is for posting what you would like to see in the new Necron Codex

1) I would like to see more weapon choices for warriors
2) New plastic elites
3) More troop choices
4) A plastic multi-part Necron Lord
5) Possibly a transport vehicle (I know the monolith is one, but another would be great) ;D
6) A points reduction of warriors to 15(?)


What would you like to see?

The WBB mechanism changed to allow more diversity.

An inexpensive troop choice.

T5 with FNP? Come now, just play nurgle if you're after that...

The idea is to improve the codex overall, not just make us uber overpowered.

Oh, I forgot, MORE FLUFF

I agree with Tyndmyr that WWB needs a bit of work, but not a drastic change

And if Paiahs had Necron rule, it would make the army list unbalanced

Nobody would need to take Immortals or Flayed Ones!

I agree that WBB might need a little bit of work but I am completely against it being replaced with FNP. The fact that WBB happens at the beginning of the Necron player's turn completely fits in with the necron fluff (what little there is). Just when you think they're all dead half of them stand back up. The pace of the game would change if WBB was replaced with FNP, there would be no knocking down models to disengage combat and no more strategic placement of dead warriors. An example would be knocking down models in the front of the necron unit to deny other enemies getting their shots off by being out of range. Little things like that keep the WBB rule a strategic, though somewhat unpredictable, resource for the necron army.

On another note I think Slow and Purposeful would fit with the necrons, if not only the necron warriors. This would hamper their already low combat ability but would increase their ranged capabilities by a great degree. To me it seems it would also be in keeping with their fluff; a massive block of warriors marching down the battlefield all shooting in unison when range is acquired. SaP would give the entire army more mid-ranged support.

I'd love a cheaper troops choice because it really limits you in smaller games, e.g.:
10 warriors=180
10 warriors=180 360
Lord (base)=100 460.
and i always buy a res orb.

hmm necrons are OK already, I'd just love to see Wraiths to become more powerfull (rending, 2W? ) and pariahs with FNP (they are too easily killed for their points right now)

Giving Wraiths rending would be grand, seeing as Rending is being nerfed.

A different troops choice, preferably something weaker, but cheaper(the lack of options for Necrons appals me to be honest).

Change the Gauss Rule to make it weaker, something has to be done to make Heavy Destroyers worth taking and that's the only real solution.

Change Monolith, too powerful, no fun. Split into two options, one which takes the Destroyer aspect while the other takes the Support aspect.

Give them a viable CC unit, right now they're laughably bad at CC(give Flayed Ones rending perhaps).

New HQ choices, more armoury options, Necron Lord is a cliche at this point, Res Orb is always taken.

Make Res. Orb less useful, or price it higher, right now it's too good for its price.

New fluff, can't stand the whole "we've done everything" gimmick. Give them Adeptus Mechanicus helpers(can justify a TechPriest as a HQ and Skitarii units).

Change Phase Out, I don't like how the mission objective becomes secondary to achieving Phase Out.

Edit Give Necron Warriors/Immortals Slow and Purposeful, I just think it fits in nicely with their fluff.
