So with the latest rumor set giving us a 2nd Necron wave, one has to ask, just were are those flyers. Especially when it comes to our transport the Night Sythe. At this time there are two ways to look at it.

1. They just were not mentioned yet, and are going to be apart of this wave.
2. They are being held for a later release with more flying vehicles for what has been mislabeled the "Autumn of Flyers"

Personally I don't know which it is, and I am going to ignore the idea that they are just not going to be done anytime in the near future. I would like to think that the rumor is yet another indication that we will be seeing a big flyer release coming up sometime right after 6th edition, however that is rather speculative. I suppose only time will tell. We should start seeing information this coming weekend on what May will bring us.

The picture above just cracks me up. I beleive it was taken by Weirdboy.

  1. Either way, I can't wait!

    Yes I want my flyers, but the other miniatures will take enough of my money for now.

  2. Agreed. The pic is very funny. Reminds me of this guy two of our group members talk about. Apparently there is this guy that plays at two of the local gaming stores. He doesn't have any models. He has pieces of paper with model names written on them. Great way to figure out what will and won't work with your army without dumping a ton of money. I have yet to see the guy.

  3. I'm hoping it will be a while so I can use the $17/each Cylon Raiders as Doom/Night Scythes a bit longer.

    1. If a guy beat me with lego hammer I would buy him a beer. Sportsmanship. Separates the players from the hobbists.

  5. players only have X amount of disposable income... it make no sence giveing them all models at once caus they onl will spend 1 x worth.... if you spread releases into 2-3 small releases they will 2-3 x worth.

    1. Wrong, since they have x amount of disposable income, if you don't put out all the models out and give them a goal to save up money for, they will simply spend their hobby money somewhere else.

    3. @Anon above: When I was in that situation, I decided just to make an account. Saves a lot of trouble.
      Name? Well I just picked one of my favourite fictional characters, Shrike from the Mortal Engines series.
      Anyway, on topic, some players (who have less money - students, teenagers) might just save up anyway, so that by the time they have enough money the model might have been released.

    4. I've a name and an account. Hello!
      By the way, I'm the 'Anon above' Shrike.

      I'm very happy to have been without spending money for some time. Hence I didn't start an 'old Necron' army. Phew! Now I'm rubbing my hands together in eagerness for the 2nd wave. Wraithwing here I come!

    5. For my profile i just used my name :P... But for those who are clamoring for scythes look at it like how im looking at it: Would you rather have just the scythes now, or have all the other fantastic models we're gonna get instead of the sychtes. Whic would you choose 0.o

  6. The picture is really funny :) Let's hope Necrons will not have to wait 2+ years for these models like SW and Tyranids had to...
    I think we will see Necron Flyers with... Autumn of Flyers? Maybe alongside with Harpy, Voidraven, etc. But I think Necron flyers will not be in 2nd wave now.

  7. For a spoof, I built a posterboard and popsicle stick "Space Marine". Just cut out the base in the posterboard and trim off a wide stick to match the height of an official mini. By the time I used a permanent marker on both sides it was vastly easier to look at a "squad" across the board and see who was armed with what.
