Hi all, there is some Necron Scuttlebutt floating about out there.

Early word is that Necrons may be slated for the Q2-09 40k release slot. There is another codex scheduled ahead of them but there is conflicting data on what it is (currently bouncing around between IG, Space Wolves, Dark Eldar). The info reported so far is:


Removal of the C'tan from the Codex as fieldable units (they are still in the fluff).
The C'tan are to be moved over to Apocalypse where they will make an appearance as much more powerful single figures (possibly with attendant new oversized Forgeworld minis).
The big new HQ replacement for them will be entirely new tiered-level Necron Lords. Read the Apocalypse Necron background page for insight into what may be coming, but there is talk of Bronze, Silver, Gold, possibly even Platinum Lords.
Lords are said to have multiple special abilities and options, and certtain levels of Lords may re-arrange the Force Org chart for certain units, making different army builds possible. An example of an option was an advanced necrodermis, allowing the Lord to mimic his C,tan masters (and conveniently allow for the use of the existing C'Tan minis).
There will be Necron Lord named characters.
The rest of the army is described as getting a small number of new units, and having several existing units rearranged by Force Org category.
In general, the Necron army is desribed as being somewhat "buffed".

Thanks for posting this stuff Matt. Wouldn't otherwise be seeing this.

With the whole new emphasis on Apokolypse moving the C'tan over to that exclusively makes sense. I think deep down in their soul GW employees miss the crazy 2nd edition and Apok is how they feed that spirit.

No problem Bob.

Yeah C'tan definitely fit better in apocalypse, and i like that they made it so you could potentially use a catan model as a new kind of lord now... so that non apocalypse players aren't wasting their model.

Imagine a forgeworld one, would be awesome!

Yeah i think this is one of the big reasons apoc exists, pretty cool to have as an option!

The thing that is really cool is that it makes a heck of a lot more sense seeing one on an Armageddon battlefield. after all they are "gods". im sure the rules for them in apocalypse will be pretty brutal. They would be thier own titan to rival the other races.

I know some Necron players that will be definately be stoked to hear that there is glimmer of hope for a new 'dex soon. Also, I think Forgeworld would make a fantastic model for the C'tan.

apoc makes must more sense for the c'tan. They were way to over powered in smaller games. The fact that we are also seeing new units could mean we're seeing the actual soldiers of the necrons.

Rearranged troop organizations? Huzzah! More scoring units!

Now if we can just equate Gauss with Rending, I'll be a happy.
