As such, Necrons entering the webway must reach their destination quickly, lest the It is rare for a tomb world to awaken to full function swiftly. With network itself bring about their destruction.
In most cases, these Aeons have passed since those times. The Old Ones are gone, coalesce over time to restore identity and purpose, but it is a and the webway itself has become a tangled and broken process that can take decades, or even centuries, and cannot be labyrinth.
Many dolmen gates were lost or abandoned during hurried. Sometimes recovery never occurs, and the sleeper is the time of the Great Sleep, and many more were destroyed doomed forever to a mindless state.
Those that remain grant access to but a small portion of the webway, much of that voluntarily sealed off by There are thousands of tomb worlds scattered throughout the the Aeldari to prevent further contamination. It is well that this is so. As a race bereft attempt to bring some form of order to their existence. Other of psykers, the Necrons are incapable of warp travel, and Necrons refer to such places as the Severed Worlds, and they without access to the webway, they would be forced to rely loathe and fear their inhabitants in equal measure.
None of this is once more on slow-voyaging stasis-ships, all but ending their to say that even an individual lucky enough to achieve a flawless ambition to re-establish their empire of old.
The colossal amounts of energy generated are detectable finally ending the curse of biotransference. Indeed, this last matter — across great distances, and are an irresistible lure to the inquisitive the apotheosis from machine to living being — is the key motivating and acquisitive alike. As a result, the rulers of many tomb worlds see an master program, whose complex decision matrix allows it to opportunity not only to restore the dynasties of old, but also to calculate an efficient response to any perceived threat.
As the improve their standing within the wider Necron hierarchy. Unsleeping sentinels into the stars, searching for distant tomb worlds not yet awoken. Driven by ancient alien races to pursue internal politics or oversee the rebuilding of protocols, these automata initiate the processes of revivification, their planet to glory. The vast majority of tomb worlds, however, take a more aggressive tack, launching resource raids, planetary invasions or full-blown Like all tomb worlds, those recently awakened are replete with the genocidal purges.
Yet even here, it is impossible to predict the resources most precious to the Necrons — minerals and esoteric precise form these deeds will take. Sometimes the Necrons attack substances used in their most powerful technomantic creations. At others, every possible Gothic as blackstone. It is through blackstone that the Necrons are underhanded tactic is employed, from piracy and deception, to able to create their star-spanning tetrahedral zones of stable space, assassination and fomentation.
On occasion, the campaign is less perfectly ordered tracts of reality that are resistant to the warping a martial action than a systematic extermination, the swatting of influences of Chaos. But over the long years in which the Necrons slept, others have All of these acts, diverse though they are in scope and method, been drawn to the raw wealth of their tomb worlds.
The Adeptus are directed towards a single common goal: the restoration of Mechanicus, in particular, founded many quarries upon these the Necron dynasties. Yet, with the Triarch long gone and huge mineral-rich planets, layering their surfaces with rockcrete hab- numbers of tomb worlds lying desolate or dormant, there can be no domes and vast manufactorums.

In spite of their world- Triarch Praetorians take their place as splitting powers. These are divided into two cohorts. Legions may consist of Warriors. The living-metal form of a Necron is a marvel of ancient science. Others look like they have been cast from ceramics.
Some appear forged from burnished silvered steel. Though the death of stars and the destruction of worlds has changed the celestial landscape of the Necron Empire. It can bear myriad colours. Unfeeling and disposable. Legions bear the colours of their Lords and Overlords upon the ankh. Over these unyielding surfaces. Necron Warriors typically bear only the colours of their dynasty and tomb world. Some nobles still see it as the foundation of the Necron Empire.
These may be battle ankh. These symbols are sometimes worn alongside the Ankh of the Triarch. Tomb Blades usually bear further glyphs denoting their designated honours. Lesser soldiery are rarely granted the distinction of bearing these dynastic symbols on their bodies in full. Each dynasty also possesses its own glyphs. The Triarch were a triumvirate of phaerons that ruled the Necrons.
Each dynasty will vary the colours of the Ankh and cartouche to match those of their phaeron. In the 41st Millennium. Like a steel claw bursting from the heart of the galaxy. In contrast.

In the battle plans are incredibly versatile. Such a realm is as nothing that the only way a foe can truly gain a prideful need to display his superiority when compared to the galaxy-spanning meaningful advantage is to abandon all over those enemy commanders foolish Imperium or the Necron dynasties at the logic themselves — something that most enough to stand against him.
Thus does the Stormlord hate the knowledge of their inadequacy. His armies advance or a bellicose warrior granted strategic of either course. On Macragge. Yet won through force of arms alone.

A unique item will be detailed in its owner's entry, while an item that is not unique, will be detailed in the wargear seclion.
A good example is the Staff of the Destroyer a weapon wielded by Imotekh the Stormlord, As such its rules are detailed in Imotekh's entry Imotekh also , , Infinite. Each entry describes a unit and gives the specific rules you needed to use it in your games As such, the army. This weapon is also carried by other Necrons, and so its rules are found in the wargear section. Instead place an Ever-living counter where The model was removed from play, At If a model with the Reanimation Protocols rule is removed as the end of the phase, roll for this counter, just as you would for a casualty there is a chance that it will self-repair and return to play at the end of the current phase.

If the model had not joined a unit self-destruct rather than risk capture by the enemy when it was removed as a casually, it must be returned to play, with a single Wound, within 3 of the the counter. On a 1, 2 3 or 4 the damage is too severe and no self-repair occurs or more friendly units that it is eligible to join, it automatically , , , - nothing happens.

Reanimation Protocols rolls cannot be attempted if the unit has been destroyed - once the last model has been emoved as a casualty, remove all your counters.

His armoured form is proof against tankbusting weaponry his metal sinews have might enough to noble s intellect and personality was far more extensive than crush bones to powder. At his command are all the arcane that granted to lesser Necrontyr, Most Necrons emerge from the Great Sleep as dull-witted creatures, with little memory ot the individual they once were By contrast unless they suffer damage during their dormancy, Necron Lords and Overlords armaments of his ancient civilisation: Yet perhaps a Necron noble s most potent weapon is his mind, indeed, a Phaeron has so much force of will that he can infuse nearby minions with a portion of his own burning determination ' , that they once possessed.
A Tomb World may have dozens or even hundreds, of nobles but only one has the power of absolute rule. Each Phaeron will also lay claim to a crownworld. Infantry Character. Staff of light. Ever-living, Independent Character Necrons tend towards calculative behaviour, and a pretender will rarely move openly if the chances of success Necron Overlord only , Reanimation Protocols.
Similarly it is not unknown for a challenged Overlord to yield to a subordinate if there is no hope of immediate victory, choosing to wait out the years and centuries In d lower rank, patiently anticipating , an opportunity to reclaim that which was lost, UPGRADES: When this occurs the remainder of the Tomb World's nobles align according to loyalty and ambition, though some will wait as long as possible before doing so whilst they negotiate the price of their loyalty.
These internal , p , wars invariably follow the formalised codes that governed the ancient Necrontyr, leading to set piece battles with forces arranged and rules agreed in advance by the competitors. In times before biotransterence, such events led to the slaughter t ot countless millions in a matter ot days or weeks.
Nowadays, thanks to the Necrons' capacity tor sell-repair these wars , can last for years or even centuries with no discernible victor - reason enough for all but the most desperate or power- hungry Necron nobles to avoid such an outcome. For every battle a Necron noble tights amongst his own kind he will orchestrate hundreds of sprawling campaigns against , I.
For many nemesors it is unthinkable to honour an alien enemy with the traditional codes of battle, in their , eyes, most races are little more than vermin to be wiped away with as much efficiency and as little pomp as possible.
Most of the more advanced races, such as the Eldar, have simply proven themselves unworthy of being treated as equals So it is that assassination and ambush - forms of battle forbidden in wars between the nobility - are employed against outsiders without reservation. Yet no matter how base a Necron ruler might consider his enemy to be he personally oversees his battles wherever possible leading his vaswls from the thick , , of the fighting.
Jump Infantry Character. These then, are Ihe Destroyers, Ihe self-appointed heralds of oblivion. Destroyer Lords are the most maniacal of their kind. EicmlkUKr Ezandrakh af ihr Mtphnl ZJyiwsry ' Not so Destroyer Lords - they have long ago discarded any ability to empathise with other creatures, it a Destroyer Lord takes prisoners it is not out of honour or pity but simple , Umcleu iBoitability.
There are a thousand ways m which captives can be used as lures for other fleshlings, and Destroyer Lords are conversant with every last one. Indeed, in a galaxy full to overspillmg with genocidal despots. Destroyer Lords remain worthy of mention as something truly homfic. Destroyer Lords are formidable combatants, for their physical might equals that of the mightiest Overlords Most favour warscythes or voidblades over ranged tools of war 1 In his horrific way, a Destroyer Lord is a craftsman, and the fruits of his bloody labours are far more easily tallied in the thick of the fighting There is no artistry to a Destroyer Lord's blows - each swing of his blade is driven by the desire for optimum efficiency Strangely, this often means a Destroyer Lord s attacks are unintentionally spectacular ' if ht calculates that three enemies can be slam swifter with one blow than three individual strikes, then a single blow is all that will be made A lesser creature would perhaps balk at such a risk, but for a Destroyer Lord, who has calculated success down the tiniest detail, there is no nsk to be had - only deadly certainty.
They are masters of dimensonal dissonafKe, singularity manipulation, atomic transmutation, elemental transmogrification and countless other reasondefying technologies, In many ways, a Cryptek's powers mirror those employed by the psykers of other races but , with a crucial difference; instead of using a mutant mind to channel Warp energies, the Cryptek employs aicane science to harness the universe's fundamental forces Every conclave specialises m a particular field of technosorcery, be it psychomancy, plasmancy, chronomaney or any one of a hundred thousand other dtsciphnes The conclaves were origmatty founded to share information and eNpertrse from one end of the galaxy to the other , but have since become fragmented and isolated In the millennia since biotransference, Crypteks have become ust as stagnant and fragmented as every other aspect of Necron society.
Nowadays, the surviving conclaves are maintained out of force of habit more than for any practical reason. Even the proudest Overlord will muster an apology when his soldiers and weapons seize up. Such a move can prove politically dangerous for the Overlord, as this essentially elevates the Cryptek to the same rank as the Necron Lords already serving there, and so inevitably fosters resentment amongst his regal subordinates Nonetheless, having the Cryptek's wealth of knowledge beyond the Tomb World Indeed, it is common procedure tor an Overlord to grant a Cryptek the first pickings of precious alloys, power cores and focus crystals m exchange for his and expertise close at hand rs normally viewed as more than adequate compensation for the risk, incredible lechno-sorcenes With a mere gesture of his staff a Cryptek can bnng the ground to writhing and hungry life services on campaign Such a bargain serves both sides well.
Should a retained clouds of soul-sapping darkness or call down eldritch bolts of living lightning These are the weapons of the gods, and only Cryptek rise loo far above his station a Necton Overlord gods would think to stand against them. Ever-living, Reanimation Protocols. Once orders have been received they are completely single-minded and will follow commands through to conclusion without armies.
They are implacable, emotionless and terntymg soldiers - the inexorable emissaries of death itself Yet on closer inspection of a Necron Warrior, aberrant details become , visible lhal act against the image of the inevitable reaper. Its reactions, though precise are slow. Its limbs, though strong and sleek, are pitted and corroded covered with an otly fluid seeping from aged joints.
Its movements are jerky and every so often it stumbles as synapses misfire. In truth the Necron Warrior would almost be pitiable were it not for the merciless gleam Ikkenng in its eyes and the pervasive sense that it is less question.
Furthermore, individual warriors can suffer grievous damage before they cease fighting. Even dismemberment , or decapitation cannot be counted upon to stay a Necron Warrior's advance, for its sophisticated self-repair mechanisms can return it to the tray within minutes, , , , a sentient creature than it is one of the walking dead. Despite its tenuous sensory connection to reality a Necron Warrior is not entirely fearless. Though most of its animalistic Unlike other forces at a nemesor's command Necron instincts have long since been expunged or degraded into nothingness a Necron Warrior's need tor self-preservation Warriors are in no way autonomous.
They are bound entirely still has some download on its mind. That said such a to their commander's unyielding will. Outside of simple reaction requires it to have registered the danger at hand something which is by no means certain. Should survival instinct go untriggered the Necron Warrior will carry its fight to almost unbelievable degrees, marching heedlessly through ,.
Without more specific orders a phalanx , , of Necron Warriors automatically settles into a guard routine repelling enemy attacks with rippling volleys of precision.
All this they do m utter silence, for Necron Warriors never speak - vocalisation was a luxury deliberately denied them by design. However if heavily damaged, a will surely see it destroyed Necron Warrior emits a modulated electronic scream a tooth- identity are merely side-ettects of the biotransference process In the Time of Flesh they were not soldiers but artisans. It is impossible to say whether this death wail is intended as a warning to other Necrons or is simply a halt- of war.
As citizens ot lesser status it was inevitable that their remembered reaction to the onset of oblivion conversion would be neither so careful nor so precise as , ,. Gauss flayer. Reanimation Protocols. These were the very elite of the dive for cover, but this offers only a fool's hope of survival.
There can be no hiding from Immortals - their gauss blasters will scour every nook and cranny until naught remains but Necrontyr armies, hardened veterans born anew in tireless metal bodies. For hundreds of years, the Immortals were a scourge upon all who stood between the Necrons and galactic domination. Now, the Immortal legions are but an echo of what they once were, for countless tntltons were destroyed m the final days of the War in Heaven Vel billions more survived, and now wait only to be awakened from their tombs and begin the reconquest of the galaxy As the shock troops of a Tomb World's armies Immortals.
At that point, all the foe can do is ash on the breeze. Gauss blasttr. Indeed, m many ways the transfer to machine bodies and minds only sharpened the Immortals ability to prosecute war in an efficient fashion. Left to their own devices, a phalanx of Immortals continues to strive for victory using every tactic and stratagem at their disposal. Most profound is the fact that they are incapable of learning i and adapting to new means of battle. Fortunately, such instances are unusual for, no matter the advances m technology, war has changed little since the days of the War m Heaven.
Immortals are capable of speech albeit in flat and , emotionless tones that are even more soulless than the hollow voices of the Overlords. This enables them to not only provide clinically precise battlefield repots to their superiors, but also to issue orders to Necron Warriors, a factor that often increases the efficiency of the entire battlefrant.
Outside these parameters. Immortals are, at best, limited conversationalists, often falling prey to recursive loops of logic and procedure in place of conveying any pertinent information.
If presented with an enquiry or concept beyond its understanding an Immortal simply does not respond, , This trait only serves to encourage the more arrogant Necron Overlords in their rambling and rhetorical soliloquies This , in turn, ensures that a nemesor's pre-battle address to his troops can drag on for an interminably long time, as he scours his Immortals silent forms for some glimmer of understanding and they, with patience born of utter ' incomprehension, stare straight back at him, waiting solemnly for the order that will throw them into battle once more What Immortals lack in flexibility of approach, they more than make up for in durability and firepower.
Immortals are more thickly armoured than Necron Warriors and can weather a storm of heavy bolter or assault cannon fire with little more to show for it than fresh carbon-sconng on their already timeworn frames. Even should an Immortal be felled, its threat is not ended, for its auto-repair systems are. Few foes can withstand the immotlals return fire so ' easily. Lychguards are incredibly imposing, housed m the same heavily-armoured forms more commonly reserved for Necron royalty This is mostly due to practolity - after all, what use is a bodyguard if he has not might and hardiness enough to defend his master?
However, there is also an underlying arrogance lo the Lychguards thickly-armoured design, a brazenness mean! Accordingly, Lychguards can inevitably be found at the heart of any battle, either because their master's army has rallied around them, or the enemy has chosen to make the destruction of their charge, and therefore the destruction o' the Lychguard a priority.
Some Lychguard even go so far as to seek forgiveness from Iheir sovereign it they land anything less than an immaculate stroke So will a Lychguard sometimes stand motionless m the heat of battle.

Acting m swarms that were dozens or even hundreds strong. Tomb Blades would swarm over enemy capital ships, overwhelming armour and weapon systems with order to adapt to fresh objectives waves of pinpoint gauss and lesla fire So successfully did the craft perform in its primary environment that modified versions soon appeared in planet side battles - The pre-programmed nature of a Tomb Blade's flight means that it is therefore theoretically possible to predict one of the few occasions in which the hidebound the flight path it will take, but only a gemus-level intellect traditions of the Necron military were adapted to better exploit emergent opportunity.
Even it said genius could isolate and identity the particular set ol equations in use, no conventional targeting computer The Tomb Blade has a curious motion tor a craft of its design, eschewing the arrow-straight attack vectors of other ]elbikes and fighter craft The Tomb Blade s dimensional repulsor engines ensure that gravity momentum and other forces have little download upon its , frame.
As a result the craft often corkscrews across the , battlefield rather than taking a more direct approach, and could ever hope to process the data fast enough to be of any use Thus, a Tomb Blade is just as difficult a quarry as the most accomplished of all mortals, even though its pilot's skill is immensely inferior Tomb Blades often operate tar ahead of the mam army, sinking at lightly defended positions, supply convoys and constantly changes vector and altitude in a manner fit to boggle the enemy's aim.
No flesh and blood pilot could ever hope to contend with such an anarchic approach without succumbing to blackouts and nausea, but such other targets ot opportunity. Though the planet side craft do not mount the starship-bustmg weaponry of the spacetighter variants the twin-linked tesla carbines and gauss blasters can hazards have no hold over machines infantry. A Destroyer cares not for borders or allegiance nor does he make any distinction between the innocent and the damned - all life is his enemy, and all living creatures are his prey.
Insanity 0: It- infects many a slumbenng Necron. Yet even the lowliest Necron Warrior longs for a return to Time of Flesh, and because its physical form is all that now echoes the Irving breathing, soulful , creature it once was, it will under no circumstances tolerate further dilution or corruption of that physical form. Instead for a Destroyer, everything is subsumed into the all-important goal , of annihilation.
They ruthlessly adapt, augment or expunge any facet of their physical form if it will improve their mission of slaughter.
Legs are removed in favour ot repulsor platforms, arms are fused to the workings of gauss cannons Even the Destroyer's senses are reconfigured to belter serve target lock and prediction capability, its neural circuitry repathed to improve response times at the cost of vestigial emotions.
None ot this is to say that Destroyers do not feel tear; though they might explain a retreat away as conserving resources it is a , retreat nonetheless, spurred on by a spark of self-preservation that will never quite be extinguished. What makes the rise ot the Destroyers truly disturbing is that they can be found on almost every Tomb World, from i the poorest fringeworld lo the noblest of crownworlds.
This suggests that the descent into this particular form of madness is driven by subconscious imperative - possibly one implanted by the Clan during biotransference. This does not mean that Destroyers hail from every level of Necron society It takes a certain freedom of personality to embrace nihilism with such cold-blooded determination, a level of individuality denied to low-ranking Necrons.
