They are pretty darn awesome. I am even considering getting a Necron army right now.

I dont know about those flying thingies, I mean, the sculpts are great yes, but I could not give a fuck less about them since in my eyes Necrons are supposed to walk.

The flyed ones I can live with, dont get what people hate so much about them.

I thought they seemed a little odd with some of their decor being borderline tribal, but I was still thinking of snagging one boxed set.

Until I saw they were 45$.

AHAHAHANO.

35 is what I expected them to cost, and looksie looksie, 35 is what they do cost. So I wont whine and moan about it.

I love flayed ones, they look great... but I think I'll just stalk eBay for metal ones. That way I don't have to take out a mortgage to buy a unit of 10.

I rate them a 3.

Even with Jes Goodwin's input.

There's only so much polishing you can do to a turd.
(they've always been a boring army and probably always will be. Robot zombies, boring.)

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?

Well i love the new Necrons, however looking in the old codex i see the point on the Flayed Ones, i do like the current Flayed Ones, but that is a personal choice, but i will concede that they are not as good as the old Flayed Ones.

Now i have looked on the GW site to get prices, well the Flayed Ones will sell in Australia for $72.00 AuD that is currently $77.06 USD.

Overall too expensive.

The C'Tan Nightbringer and Deceivers retail at $62.00 AuD a piece.

Prepare to mortgage the house to pay for them.

Ultramarines are Pussies

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

I would rate them at a 7. They're a little better than alright. The variety of units is nice, but there are more than a few aesthetic elements I don't like.

In other news,

Rated 9. From a Necron player's point of view the release is much better than for others.

I mean, ten years GW?!

well im sure with the flayed ones, there should be more options now to convert some. As for rating even tho im not a big fan of xenos id still rate them an 8, flayed ones seem way out of place but the rest do give that sense of malice.
