Default Invent your own crazy Ward rules

Well the new Necrons are almost here and Matt Ward has invented yet another crazy rule as well as having committed the almost unforgivable sin (and I say this because he isn't alone in reinventing the Necrons) of making souless robots designed to kill into a fascimile of what happens when Data's emotion chip goes bad while he's playing Sherlock Holmes and the case of the ancient Egyptian Terminator. Yes our souless Necrons now have feelings

Anyway one character, Trazyn the infinite, can apparently kill entire units in one go (check out the Necron rumour section for more on this abomination). So to celebrate the latest craziness to come out of the Matt Wardrobe (sorry, no more stupid jokes from now on), I've decided to ask what all of you on Heresy think might be future crazy rules from dear Matt. Personally I hope he writes a Chaos Marine codex so we can see the following for Dreadnaughts.

Rolling a one - a result of one sees the Dreadnaught's pilot go berserk and fire at every enemy unit that is within range and line of sight.

Rolling a six - a result of six sees the Dreadnaught's pilot go berserk and assault in sequence every enemy unit within 12".

A new unit to the codex can now feel. That is not a rule anyways that would fall under fluff. Seriously if you are going to knock a guy, at least do it right.

Could you translate the first part of that?

And I think your new rule is pretty fantastic. Here's hoping, then my uber expensive but uber shitty FW dreads will be useful.

The whole thing reminds me of the Forsaken. The scourge are mindless undead along comes Sylvannas and bam we have free will and call ourselves the Forsaken and want to build our own empire. Ward and his team must have had some influence from Blizz and thier fluff in WoW. It could also be that I have just been playing WoW too long and its corrupted my mind.

If it's possible, WoW has worse background than ANYTHING in existence.

Wait, so expanding an army to be able to have more options than undead shambling phalanxes is a BAD thing?

And this is why I don't get the internet. You get something nice, a new army that looks downright DEADLY on the table and instead of trying to enbrace the response is crying about giving them actual chaacter instead of looking at all the new this you can do. GW even pulled a rabbit out of the hat and decided that the old shambling ombies where still a completely valid army as well (it's always nice to see an update that improves on without invalidating old armies).

While I'm not planning on starting up Necrons again I'm glad to see they got some good treatment and hope Sisters get something like that. An expansion, maybe even a refocus without an invalidation of the old builds. In faxt, that's what I hope EVERY army continues to get.

I liked the old fluff. Super old race jealous of a fellow race due to lifespan and such makes a deal with the devil. They become an undead horde of terminator robots out to wipe out life in the universe because they didn't read the fine print. You don't need much more. That's pretty cool.

As to the new fluff. Well Stargate aside, I am hoping to like it, but I think they gave up some very cool ideas to do this. Necrons working with Boy Scouts kind of .... sucks.

As to game play, I really hope there are lots and lots and lots of builds!
