Necrons: The Conventional Rumor Wisdom Arrives (at last!)
This Necron Rumor season has been all over the place, but at last it’s starting to gel. Here’s today’s news:
Necrons – January 2015
-Clampack Necron Lord
Codex is described at “thick, almost Space Marine sized”. Look for it to include lots of fluff, as well as many Lords of War & Formations (possibly some of the Apoc ones.)
Later in 2015, Necrons will star in a Campaign Book, alongside 3 additional kits (both reworks, and new kits)
These Rumors are rated RELIABLE, coming from known good sources.
The most interesting thing of this bunch to me is the word of a Necron Campaign book coming later in 2015 with 3 new kits attached. It would appear that the success of Stormclaw, Shield of Baal, and the WFB End Times series is moving Games Workshop in a new direction. It looks like we can from now on expect to see a “two-track” parallel releases of the traditional army codices with accompanying supplemental codices (and some minis), with a second track of these “X vs Y” campaigns that include book sets with integrated new rules and minis as well.
~ Have at it folks!
