Today I had found a brief summary of necron units, and although it was brief it had some information in it that was new to me. So here I figured I would combine that with what we heard on Monday, and compile them into one single summary, with the new information typed in italics.

Of note there are two named new heavy support options, some possible names for Necrons Lords, along with some of the lords that will make other units troops. There is also some confusion on where scarab swarms will go, as the new information puts them into troops. I would not hold my breath on this one yet.


Please remember to take all rumors with a grain of salt.
Necrons
Author : Mat Ward for the bulk of the codex, but two others were involved before him.

Rules
We'll Be Back was still trying to be saved, last he knew.

Will be back is redone (Feel no Pain now)

WBB is basically FNP for most guys. Not FNP exactly

Gauss Weapons are Rending

Many Psychic Powers listed as "Tech Upgrades"

Phase out is reworked

Complicated rules from the codex are getting simplified and a lot of the war gear options are vanishing

Wargear
Not all gauss weapons are rending.

Living metal is changing

The way Res orbs work has been reworked

Necrons will have their magic power guy, tech upgrades instead of psychic powers most likely

HQ
C’tan are gone, and are replaced with powerful named Necron lords and special characters.

One of the Lords makes Immortals troops

Another Special Character has some really nice anti psyker abilities

While the Ctan are themselves out of the codex their influence is still in place.

One of the lords was like 240 points or somewhere around there. He looks like he has potential to be beastly in CC though.
(one of them is 240 pts worth, cc specialist vs 2+)

Named Lords:
The Enfleshed - making Flayed Ones Troops
The Undying - making Immortals Troops
The Silent King ?
The Voidbringer ?
The Stormcaller ?
The Harbinger of Night ?

Random Lords
Anti psyker guy. Pariah ?
Psyker counterpart guy. Cryptek ?

Troops
Warriors
Will come 10 to a box
New options and also other colors of rod (orange and red I think? Orange is not bright orange, but sort of dark, kinda like a beer color almost)
Warriors - no re-cut, possible additional sprue, yellow, orange, red, green rods, possible mark system. (10 per box)

Warriors are not changing, but doesn't preclude a new weapon/option sprue.
Otherwise look the same.

Scarab Swarms (my comment, since they are also suggested at being fast attack, I wouldnt hold my breath here)

Elite
Immortals
Redone, in plastic? Unsure of the material.
Lots of "Bling"
Bigger than old ones
One of the Special Character ‘Cron lords makes them troops
Will come in boxes of 5, can be in units of up to 10.
large (35mm) base; they are redesigned as larger, bulkier and more

Flayed Ones
Redone, unsure of the material.
(Harlequins counterpart?)

Pariahs
overhaul into Lord retinue (second wave)

Fast Attack
Wraiths

Scarab Swarms

Destroyers
-See heavy for combined rumours

New fast attack unit
Look kinda like flayed ones
They have an 18” charge with their special ability
Think jump infantry with special rules
5 per box

Heavy Support
Necromancer - Resurrection, Warscythe, Gauss smthn... (plastic kit, 1 per box)

Obelisk/Gauss Obliterator/Heavy Gauss Cannon platform (plastic kit, 1 per box)

Monolith
Remain expensive

Destroyers/Heavy Destroyers
Redone in plastic.
Like the old hybrid kits, but in plastic with fancier torso’s.
The skimmer body things don’t look much changed.
Option for a lawn mower (lown mower as in a gun that has alot of shots, to mow throw hordes) type weapon too if you want to deal with hordes, 1 per box.

Tomb spider
Tomb Spyders - 3 different builds (plastic kit, 1 per box)

Getting a remake
Will have several options and be able to fulfil a variety of roles in the army.
Spyders redone in plastic.
1 per box.

New MC/Vehicle
Can throw down some long range hurt but is still underwhelming compared to things like the Manticore 48” range
1 per box

New giant MC
Ranged or Melee options

Wraith Lord feel all around
One of the guns looks similar to the new gun the destroyer guys are getting which works well against hordes.
He has a lot of weapon options
1 per box.

New Blisters:
New metal lord on foot
Has a staff

First resin models in 40k
