40K RUMORS: The Necrons are Close…

< 1
Dec 11 2014

OK, folks, its been a long while without Necron rumors, but a whole batch just arrived.  Come See!

Codex Necrons:

Crammed into the GW schedule right before the new year.
Pre-orders Dec. 19th
Street date: Dec 26th
(Previous chatter from last month says first week of January)


Little to no new models (a la Grey Knights)
(scattered chatter says perhaps 1 character clampack and 1 Destroyer/DestroyerLord plastic kit)


Look for Nerfs to the following:

Doom Scythes
Night Scythes
Tesla will get an overhaul to their rules.
Deathray will receive a big overhaul to how it targets models.
Characters remain fundamentally unchanged.
The Stormlord will recieve a Necron themed orbital bombardment of some type once per game.
Warlord Traits are good with some granting individual units USRs, while another listed granted an improved version of Reanimation Protocols
Rumors are rated: Above-Average, coming from known and unknown sources.
~ It’s gonna be CRAZY if GW just keeps releasing new products right through Christmas.  I mean what will 2015 bring if less than 18 months after a new edition, every codex has been done in hardback?
