OK I'm the least likely to hate on a arrival but 1) I'm a necron fan and 2) there are some continuity issues (Ward made em but till these issues are decided...) so from the beginning
Necron Immortals are as tough as space marines, but regular warriors I could see being run over (as they are the cheep easy and still continuity wise most probably to be still in production necron)
Destroyers: you brought em up but did nothing with em. As these guts are flying centaurs with guns I'd think they would be harassing the rough riders the whole way.
And phariahs...unfortunately are no longer codex standard meaning they are 1 rare and 2 not likely to be produced by any but the most advanced dynasties. A good replacement would be the triarch pretorians, who have a comparable armament.
And lastly (die to current codex more than anything else) even with their lords death the Necron are less likely to self destruct and more likely to retreat or fall back on standard protocols until a new lord takes over. Plaguenumber3 (talk) 01:04, September 12, 2013 (UTC)
- Thank you for pointing that out; I'm not very familiar with the Necrons. Jochannon (talk) 02:48, September 13, 2013 (UTC)
ok bringing up 2 quick details
1) the existance of the Necron was a state secret until M41
2) triarch pretorians and anything related to the Trianch councel does not belong to a single dynasty or lord and as such certainly would not self destruct with the fall of a tomb world, they would simply pick up and move to the next. though the Triarch pretorian's authority over a lord (which mearly extends to making the demand of using "noble" necrontyr tactics against a enemy i.e. not using deathmarks) could explain why it was easy enough for the roughriders to take out the lord (or why the lord took to the battlefield) Triarch pretorians actually all belond to the three (now one) Dynasty of the Triarch councel and are essentially only answerable to the silent king himself (think of them like Necron SM....TY Matt Ward for putting that in...Fluff killer) sorry i didn't point this one out when i mentioned it.
