About this deal

Also making T’au enthusiasts happyis this book’s success in making a far wider variety of potential T’au battle-plans and list-building options competitively viable after a long period wheremost lists were dominated by triple Riptidebattlesuits, Coldstar T’au Commanders, hordes of Drones, and not much else. Old favorites like Crisis Battlesuit squads, Devilfish transports, and Hammerhead gunships have been rejuvenated, and T’au-heads are loving it. TheChirurgeon: This was a significant change for the unit, which went from small, individual metal models to bases of swarms similar to rippers in 3rd edition. Previously, Scarabs would just explode in melee, damaging everything around them, and this was one of the Necrons’ primary ways to deal with vehicles. In 3rd they instead just gained disruption fields, with the idea that they’d now just glance a vehicle to death, stripping chunks off it. Tomb Spyders I undercoated the entire model with a light grey primer, then washed the model twice with GW Agrax Earthshade. I then did a very heavy drybrush over the top with VMC Ivory, which produced a stippled texture like some sort of pitted stone. The bronze parts were painted with GW Balthazar Gold and the silvers with VMA Gunmetal, then both washed with Nuln Oil. The green pipes and eyes (not the blade) were undercoated with GW Stormhost Silver, then covered with the new technical Tesseract Glow. This is very easy and gets them to ‘battle ready’ status, but the weathering is what makes them pop. Basecoat with Victorian Brass (optional- just pure copper could be used to save time for battle ready), then cover everything but the recesses with Pure Copper. Establish the highlights on the silvers with Scale 75 Heavy Metal. For the tube, edge highlight it with Citadel Thunderhawk Blue.

Plastic Warriors ( Mike: complete with green clear rods… a first for Games Workshop (if you don’t count Eldar vehicle canopies) As with most armies, Games Workshop shows off a variety of paint schemes for the various Dynasties in the Codex, and via the Warhammer YouTube. As of their introduction as part of the 9th Edition starter, Necrons have been designed to be fairly easy to paint – more so, even, than their older models. Most Necrons units are drawn from a dynasty. When you include such a unit in your army, you must nominate which dynasty it is from and then replace the < DYNASTY> keyword in every instance on its datasheet with the name of your chosen dynasty. This could be one of the dynasties detailed a Warhammer 40,000 publication, or one of your own design. If every unit from your army (excluding DYNASTIC AGENT, C’ That then gets washed with Nuln Oil to darken it down, especially in the recesses, followed by a drybrush with Necron Compound on bits that are going to stay silver to complete it. I do this all now because when drybrushing such a large proportion of the model there’s a risk of getting some on other areas, which I’d rather be able to correct by re-applying the base than having to redo any edge highlighting.The Gathering Storm I and Shield of Baal campaign books from late 7th edition both feature Necrons in key roles working with the Imperium to protect key worlds from threats that they’d rather not deal with themselves. In Gather Storm, Trazyn works with Cawl and Imperial forces to stop Abaddon and in Shield of Baal Anrakyr works with the Blood Angels and the Mephrit dynasty to fend off a Tyranid invasion. Although technologically advanced, the Necrontyr were no match for the Old Ones and their psychic progeny, the Eldar, and it was in their desperation that the Necrontyr discovered the existence of the C’Tan. The other major difference between my characters and my rank-and-file jerks is that my character Necrons have orange hyperphase weapons. These took a bit of trial-and-error to figure out before I got a process for doing them that wasn’t particularly hateful.

Mike: A pretty standard swarm unit for the time… until you gave them disruption fields and proceeded to glance as many vehicles as you could! Refined: To push this one a bit further I glazed over the gauss bits with a transparent mix of Temple Guard Blue and glazing medium, then glazed white at the edges again and refined some of the electric effect with glazes of white.Mike: So friggin neat. But also so friggin expensive! A Power Fist Terminator squad’s worst nightmare, the unit was Strength 5 and had Warscythes (that ignored invulnerable saves). They also had the neat Soulless ability making every enemy unit with 12” Ld 7. I suppose Psychic Abomination was cool but it rarely came up for me. Unfortunately Pariahs were slow, vulnerable (no WBB), not a Necron (Uh Oh, Phase Out!) and cost way too much for what they could do… especially considering that they shared the Elite Slot with the fantastic (but infinitely more boring) Immortals. Shame they got Phased Out (har, har)… would have loved to see how the unit would have evolved in further editions. And there’s a lot of units to choose from. Alongside the faction’s codex, GW also released the long-teased Paragon Warsuits, Celestian Sacresants (as shown on the codex’s front cover), and Dogmata, as well as faction-specific Battle dice and datacards.

Honestly the technique I use for my purples could probably be done faster just by wet blending instead of mixing each colour together sequentially, but I am not very good at that at the moment! Plus, I am still pretty happy with how it comes out, particularly when these models have a ton of small gems, lenses, and blades. The odd men out here are the Pariahs, the cybernetic hybrid psychic nulls converted into Necron service. These were basically the Necrons’ elite melee units and their models were pretty bad. They were quietly dropped in fifth edition when the Necrons got a new codex, replaced with Lychguard, who fill a similar role and have a somewhat similar aesthetic without being quite so chunky and out-of-place.

The Nihilakh dynasty are visually notable for combining teal and gold/bronze coloring on their armor. Most notably, Trazyn originally hails from this dynasty, and the studio paint job for Orikan the diviner also follows this color scheme. The metal skeleton is the first step. Simply prime then wash the models. I primed my Necrons with Bare Metal Primer from Ammo by MIG and then washed them with 2 coats of Nuln Oil, letting each coat fully dry before proceeding to the next step. The skeleton should be very dark following 2 directly coats of Nuln Oil. Following this the entire skeleton gets a drybrush of Necron Compound, starting from the top and only brushing straight down. There is also a Stratagem for each of the six Necrons dynasties in the codex. Anyone who chooses to follow the Silent King and pledge allegiance to the Szarekhan can use the Empyric Damping Wargear Stratagem. Step 1, of course, is to assemble all required tools – I set up here with the sprue for the Skorpekh and roughly the set of paints I thought I’d need.
