I guess in Asian countries it's soy sauce, probably ketchup in the Western World.
I entirely agree, I didn't set up the petition, it was a mate of mine that played Necrons from 3rd edition onwards. I personally don't play Necrons, but I much preferred them when they were mindless killing machines. The petition may not mean much to GW but signing it would be much appreciated, just to see how many people preferred the old style of models.

I think that is the issue, there are 2 types of Necron collectors: Newcron collectors and Oldcron collectors. What the petition suggests is a supplement that allows players to use large Troop based forces.

What a fucking joke
That's not the point of the petition. The units are great, the models for the units are not.

This exists already:





A whopping eight Troops selections in the Detachment and you can take as many Resurgence Decurions as you want. What more would you like?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Shield of Baal: Exterminatus. The Formation on the other hand is a White Dwarf exclusive.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, it's much appreciated. However a supplement would be so nice, with a whole load of lore and special rules to back the large Troop based legions.

The Mephrit Dynasty has three Relics, a Warlord Trait table, a Detachment, and four Formations (one being a combination of all three with extra bonuses) in the SoB:E book, plus an extra White Dwarf Formation. It isn't a full fledged supplement like Sentinels of Terra or Black Legion but it has a fair slice of unique.

I do love my hardback covers though

Not to mention that Necrons are very powerful with their current rule set.

Your petition only mentions Szeras as ugly. Care to explain how the others are bad? Might I remind you that the first true Necron models were Terminator knock-offs?

If you feel that they are bad, fine, that is your opinion. Just be aware that your opinion is likely a very small minority among Necron players.
The new Necron UNITS are great, their models are awful. The sheer amount of orbs is shocking and takes away from the overall model, IE. Wraiths. Most of the new units are ugly to be honest. This petition is not about removing units from the game, it's about de-blinging the models for these units. In my humble opinion of course...
