Do I want them to get feel no pain? No. At least not as it stands. I want them to have something a little more unique than that. I would even be OK with feel no pain and a new streamlined we'll be back. Make them tough, really tough. Point them accordingly.
Regardless, there were some rumors being floated yesterday.
When I say these were rumors I kind of feel bad, because it leans more speculation/wishlist to me. The rumors come from Beasts of War. The first part seems extremly speculative. I am still holding to other rumors we have heard that say something is coming about halloween time August/October. This is when I think we would see the Necron codex release.
Here is the rumor.
Necrons are on their way!
Word is reaching us that the Necron range (or at least parts of) is being run down now (i.e. not available to the independant stockists) which can mean only one thing… expect Necrons in about 6 months!!!
So, we could be looking at a July/August release for your favourite army of unstoppable death machines?
A couple of tidbits that we received:
■We’ll be back is definitely gone (Feel no Pain has took over)
■We’re hearing that Gauss weapons are rending (which makes sense and will please Darrell no end)
■There will be a ton of Psychic powers listed as ‘Tech Upgrades’
The more ‘out there’ stuff that we have trouble believing
■There will be a more ornate vehicle (maybe monolith?) with moulded glyphs
■The feel of the range has been re-skinned to make it less ‘Terminator’
■Spyders have been redone
■We hear they are getting a reboot on the scale to rival the Dark Eldar!
We’re not hearing that its gonna take the same ‘feel’ as Forgeworld’s Tomb Stalker, apparently it was created and released completely independantly of the core design team. This seems a little bit like disinformation – but knowing GW I would not be entirely surprised.
The second half of this information was removed because it is a wishlist. You can read the second part here Beasts of War.
