Those Runes of Warding wouldn't be too bad if it is board wide. Otherwise it is worse than I thought.

Those Holo-Fields sound too much like a copy of Disruption Pods. Effectively, its worse than the Tau version. So it had best be cheaper.

The others sound fair, considering what we've heard.

oh yeah! I forgot about that sword running one. That pose looks nice. The one in the back is meh... static.

The one falling back looks like they put him together off the base, then just tilted him on there like "hey, lets put him on some giant debris to look menacing"

According to GWs blog the necrons is featured in this months battle report in WD. As we see an Eldar release it should be them they are up against and may it be they want to show the 'ancient foe' rule?

This was my thought as well, but there appears to be evidence leaning toward Slaanesh instead. I guess we will find out soon.

for a start there is the war in heaven and I have additionally seen necrons mentioned as the ancient enemy (in regards to the eldar) numerous times,
if it does turn out to be slaanesh I will be fairly surprised

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

The Necron codex mentions the War in Heaven, but also mentions most Eldar have forgotten about them (in all fairness when you accidently birth a god who will stop at nothing to EAT YOUR SOUL then piddly things like undying robot zombies become a lesser concern).

We did get a claim on that "Ancient" thing and it looks like it's NOT "Ancient Enemy" by "Ancient Doom":

Ancient Doom:

Eldar models suffer -1LD to all fear tests against daemons of slaanesh but pick up hatred against&aofc;such units. Could the Fear rule actually become useful for once
&nzc;nbsp;
Honestly I could see this being the case. -1LD test vs Daemons of Slaanesh but you get Hated Daemons of Slaanesh? Works for me!

I believe there was additional fluff of Eldar vs Necrons in BFG that might have mentioned "Ancient" somewhere. But that "Ancient Doom" looks more likely. "Ancient Enemy" just wouldn't sound right again Slaanesh IMO. Ancient Doom makes perfect sense!

think I mis-read something ancient doom does indeed sound slaanesh as opposed to ancient enemy

Is it just me or are anyone else concerned that you still can buy the old dex from GW website?
