Don't have the appearance of cold, calculating, inhuman machines that lack any form of emotion. You can totally read emotion on those faces...

The new flayed one's retain the cold emotionless machine you claim to want. Just like the flayed ones of old, the new ones flay and wear the skin of living beings, but in addition they also festoon themselves with body parts and bones. I don't know about you, but I think thats even more terrifying because I get even more of a picture of what they are going to be doing to my body once they get me.


And I was talking about having an army background from the current codex that reflects what Imperial minds believed the Necrons to be in the original codex.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

They are a bit "advanced" and "pristine" for the oldest race in 40k though. About the flayed ones, what? They look like something out of a cartoon. They are not menacing at all, the reason they are feared at all is the fact that anyone who sees them dies of laughter. In the Grim Darkness of the Far Future, there is only...cartoony looking models

Also, in my opinion, of course, these lords have way too many unnecessary details and embellishments, mainly on the staffs or capes, that detract from the cold machine killer theme

The problem with that would be gw only sells 1 lord from its old style currently, and it would be boring to have the same lord in the same army multiple times, for me anyway. Also, it means you have to get them second hand off ebay or the like, it would just be a whole lot easier (for me, I appreciate not for a lot of others) to make the new lords have the old style.

eBay would be a hassle, and I would imagine all the old style ones are in metal. Have fun keeping the paint on them.
