Default Immortals/Deathmarks = Troop choice?

So as i''m sure most people have seen the new Necron models comming out, so that means i'm sure most people have seen that you can buy sets that contain the components to create either 5 Immortals OR 5 Deathmarks.

Since this Immortal/Deathmark box is under troop choice on GWs site, i'm assuming that both the Immortals AND the Deathmarks are troop choices?

I think Immortals are troops. I have heard of what deathmarks can do and it would be pretty stupid if they could be troops aswell. But seeing as how Matt Ward is writing the codex, I wouldn't be surprised if highly skilled assassin snipers were troops. Deathmarks will most likely be elites and the science behind immortals will be totally changed, since they used to be elites (if I recall correctly).

Immortals could also be heavy support, like devastators.
Possibly even slow and purposeful now.

Veiw my Blood Ravens army in army showcase!

Do you ever go into a fight thinking there's no point giving my best, I'll get another chance later? We only ever get one shot, Marlin. Life is one shot. Making it count is all that matters.

No and no.

Oh, and they're only T4 now.

Warriors and Immortals are Troops, Deathmarks are Elites.

And immortals and deathmarks are actually not that good

Immortals are slightly more durable versions of warriors their gauss gun has a higer ap than warrior flayers as well personally i don't think the upgrade is worth the fairly substantial price hype

deathmarks are good against MCs but thats their main use


The decent necron units seem to be wave 2 eg stalkers and scythes

I disagree entirely. You're paying, what, four points to go from a 4+ to a 3+ save, and to increase the strength of your gun by one, decrease the AP by 1. Immortals are not rubbish at all!

And Deathmarks, best anti-MC unit, IMHO, the game will see for quite a while. Deep strike nearby, wound on 2s rapid-firing. No MC will survive that, and that really helps for things like T8 Wraithlords. Plus afterwards they essentially have weapons akin to Dark Eldar 4+ Poison guns.

Give a man a match, and he's warm for a day.

Set a man on fire, and he's warm for the rest of his life!

Immortals are pretty nasty, Deathmarks are cool looking but I think Elite slots can be better spent on Stalkers.

It's extremely worth it, especially since you can swap their blasters for tesla weaponry instead which looks to be pretty good.

Yeah, I think we're gonna see some nasty armies with Stalkers and Scarabs... just wait and see!

That's right; I think it is pretty cool too. I can't think of any other Rapid Fire Sniper in 40k. Is there an other?

All that is important is known.
