Great but not enough Armour

I like the new Necron Models but I believe that their armor is to weak as the 3 new vehicles have only 11 front back and side armor but the doomsday ark weighs that out with it 72" 9 strength Doomsday cannon as i read it in the white dwarf 383 (I luckily won it in a raffle and got to read it 4 or 3 days before public release date!) but still I have always loved the Necrons as they are my 2nd best model (Tyranids being my 1st)

Your forgetting tho, they may have weak armour, but most have the living metal rule and quantum shields, which from what i read more then makes there vehicals survivable.

I've opted for 8 alround.

These are not the most detailed models ever (to me, grey knights are still some of the most detailed basic models). These are not the most posable models ever either. But I still rate this range pretty high for the following reason:

- Good consistency throughout the range (except for flayed ones, none of these models are true "missers" imo).

- Very defined esthetics. Sure, it's more tombkings in space now, but at least it's clear that that is the theme. Imo it's good that they chose "tomb kings in space" flavor over "terminator in space" as a style, instead of a hybrid of the two (that just didn't work for me).

At least with Tomb Kings in Space it keeps the GW feel to it instead of an Arnie feel

Ultramarines are Pussies

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

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

My eye is seeing some nice models there, though the ribcage feel of the arks doesn't fit with the rest of them. But still it looks pretty good.

what would you have done differently with the ghost ark?
not being sarcastic or anything, genuinly asking if you had any idea what you would do if you redesigned it.
personaly i would have taken into account how the necrons actualy get off the damn thing haha

it doesnt seem to have much in the way of a 'door' XD
