This is just in.... Horraaayyyy!!!! Just when people were starting to think it may never happen.

This is not an official announcement from GW, however they were able to get early Necron information last time, so it sounds solid.
via Beasts of War
The next release of Necrons are coming on May 5th 2012.


We don’t have any photos of the forthcoming release but we do have an artist’s sketch of the final Necron Triarch Stalker model. It looks very similar to the Codex art work and what allot of people have already built at home
 
Our information suggests that the release will include the:
Triarch Stalker
Tomb Blade
Canoptek Wraith
Canoptek Spyder
Nemesor Zahndrekh
Vargard Obyron
Illuminor Szeras
Destroyer Lord Upgrade Pack
Heavy Destroyer Upgrade Pack

  2. Hey thanks Natfka for following up on the email I sent you... Yes twas I JayDee. So thank you.

    Also I understand the frustration for a lack of fliers but look at it like this... Isn't flier supposed to be part of 6 Ed so it seems to make sense for them to releasing them around 6th. Though I too am angry for lack of Fliers and an official Anrakyr The Traveller model!

    1. I reckon Dark Eldar voidraven bomber, Tyranid Harpie, Necron Scythes and Guard Hydra will all appear alongside the Autumn of Fliers. If not before!

    2. That was my conclusion to a lack of air power in that list of models, saving Necron fliers for some flier wave?

  3. I'm only annoyed by the fliers since I would enjoy building a list full of transports for my immortals that doesn't have a box full of proxies out there. They could always make the 2 fliers different kits like how the DE have theirs (if the second one ever comes out, haha) so that atleast we could have a transport for something besides our warriors.

  5. I'm quite interested in the TS, because walkers in genereal are awesome, and Nemesor Zandrekh, who is amazingly cheap despite his great rules.
    The upgrade kits might also be interesting, though I just converted a bunch of regular destroyers into Heavy or Lord Destroyers for my destroyer cult.
    Canoptek-wise I'll withhold my judgement until I get to see how well it matches my pair of tombstalkers.
    Couldn't care less about Szeras, Obyron or the lack of flyers, though.

    1. I think if for the points I'd take Trazyn. Sure Zandrekh can do cool things but I've seen him flop in combat. Then if you take him you must also take Obyron-Kenobi too. Trazyn to me I all aroun better with combat and his phaeron and objective taking. And th best part? If you kill him he comes back on a 2+ and kicks your ass again.

    2. Oh, I agree, Zandrekh is terrible in close combat and his lack of phaeron is rally his greatest drawback. However, if you stick him in a shooty unit and dump him on a mission objective that hardly ever becomes an issue, I find.
      Obyron is in that weird limbo that is unclear battlefield roles. His profile and counterattack say he should spend all game in melee while his cloak would be best used to evacuate shooty units to a safer position. I don't know, I wouldn't bother with him.
      *shrugs* Just get Trayzn and Zandrekh and you're pretty much set, I guess.

    3. I mean for small battles with 500-700 Zandrekh is good but my personal usage is necrons for big games, and my Death Korps of Krieg for small games usually

    1. While I don't think this is an April Fool, I'm fairly sure that that sketch isn't from a GW source.

  7. Why is it called triarch if there's nothing tri about it? Am I missing something?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The Triarch were the original leaders of the Necrons, and their praetorians were 'enforcers of law' or something along those lines. This walker is manned by those people.

  8. I'm 100% certain that picture was not drawn as concept art, just look at the gun

  9. Hopefully wraiths turn out nice as I want to do my WRAITHWING lists
    . Now Iam also curious about the destroyer lord and heavy. Will they just be torsos with weapons or will they be individually sold like now on GW website? Or will they put 1 box with components to make both??? Guess we'll see May 5th!!!! :)

    1. The one rules-thing I hate about codex necrons is no way to take wraiths as troops. Wanted that since 3rd ed, maybe they'll add a wraith lord in next time?

      Delete
  10. Thank god it's not chaos marines or dark angels!

    I need my triarch stalker, as my (3rd now!) necron army is themed around the Triarch, so that is great! also look forward to the Wraiths - I still love the old ones but I hope the new ones have more robot-tentacles as I always got a cyber-cthulhu vibe from them.

    Bit dissapointing about no Night Scythes, as I don't take warriors anymore and need a transport, but I can wait for that, just glad we'ere getting a 2nd wave really.

  11. That will look good in my CSM army.

  12. Though I have ALWAYS been an avid necron player( 5000+ points and counting) I don't see the real usefulness for the stalker. At 150 points it's expensive for what it does. If you get wepon destroyed then it's pointless then if you get immobilized it has such short range renderinG it useless. I'm sure I will pick up at least 1 for my collection but I don't see its real usefulness :( I would have prefered them to be taken in squads of 3 so I could have a "trio of triarch stalkers"just my thoughts...

  13. Give me my Canoptek Spyders. Was going to make them by dissambling one of my Tomb Spiders and making rubber molds. Then putting them together so they look different from the current. Perhaps won't need to do that. Find out 5th May.
