Default How well have GW done?

So, with all the shiney pictures on Gw's home page, how well do you think they have done with the new necron models?

the rules are yet to follow, so we can't really comment on them too much yet.

personaly, i think they are utterly stunning. some of the best models to date. however i think they have really messed up on the flayed ones, they look less covered in flesh and more wrapped in toiletpaper

on a scale of 1 to 10, probably an 8, would be 9 if they got the flayed ones right.

Ive started to update this project loge again, you should all check it out. it has some stupid things on it, and some fun things on it haha

What ?

In which regard please ?

GW have released a whole bunch of models during the last 25 years that've been better sculpted and / or more beautiful for sure. The new Necrons are fine models (even if I don't like them from a style point-of-view) alright, but dubbing them 'some of the best to date' is clearly unjustified.

I like the models, I like the new fluff and I love the new characters.

In before the haters.

Most of the models look pretty good. The one that I don't like are the Flayed Ones. They remind me of the Crypt Ghouls from VC's. They definitely could have done a better job on them if you ask me.

in the regard of...MY OWN OPPINION!!!
i think that gw have really been on the ball recently, model-wise. deamons, bloodangels, dark eldar, necrons, all fantastic ranges

*DUM DUM DUMMMMMMM*

you are free to not like the models, thats utterly fine, also why theres a '1' on the poll ;)

I already mentioned they're fine models, and my own taste in liking them or not is utterly irrelevant (that's why I wouldn't vote).

I was merely asking what qualities about the new models got you so excited, thus the question 'In which regard ... '

Your highly qualified and thoroughly objective answer doesn't leave anything unanswered though.

they seem to show just how menising they really are, pure, arrogant evil.
a decadent empire where the upper society lives in splendor, covered in gold and jewels, retaining their sense of selves, while the lower ranks have been forced to give up everything in service of their masters.

I'd give them an 8 on the Necron release. The Flayed Ones keep the the models from being a 9/10 for me. The rest of the release is great looking, those Flayed Ones are just lame looking.

Love the apoc/command barge, hate the ghost barge (and whatever it doubles as). The new models in general tend to look awesome, and I especially love the flayed ones... except that no-one is going to buy them at their current price. GW have taken a unit that was almost unused based largely on its monetary cost... and made it more expensive, madness.

I've rated the models a 6, since I think that there are a few that just look fairly rubbish or that look like they have far far too much of a DE feel to them (I get the feeling that most of the new models are just hybrids of necrons and DE). Then again I think I could love every model there and only give an 8... it would take something utterly legendary (and probably FW) to make me give a 9 or 10.
