Default Necron Lychknight

I has an idea, but I need to sort it. It involves Kitbashing an annihilation barge, a doomsday ark and a triarch stalker into a Necron knight Titan.

Creations made in madness may contain great power. The path to that power is as labyrinthine as the creator's mind.

Yet its methods of attack are limited. We long ago removed our bodies from mortality’s grasp and bartered away our souls for technological baubles and the trappings of power.Our minds, then, are all that remains for us to lose, and it is here that the next stroke against us will fall.Though our individual afflictions may take different forms, sooner or later we will be lost to madness.’

I'm not going to lie, if it looked as remotely cool as the one I'm imagining, I'd let you play it all day.

Would you be playing it with Knight rules? Which Knight would it count as?

Ah, are you not going to use the rules of an Imperial Knight?

I remember seeing something of this caliber a while back and thought it looked awesome:



One thing though; If you play it with Reanimation Protocol (due to it being a Necron) I think you would get it set it on the table once per player. They would cry, hate you and leave the store and never return.

There's been a few I've googled that basically was an Imperial Knight, using the unfished skull face. The main gun was the one from a... Doomsday Ark. I think that's the kit. It's a huge gun, perfect size for an Imperial Knight's arm.

If I had to stat out a Necron Knight, I'd probably make it standard armor 13/12/12 and give it Quantum Shielding, instead of the Ion Shield. Some massive Tesla or Gauss cannon, or maybe even the Death Ray. Shoulder mounted Gauss Blaster or Telsa Blaster (same optoins as an Immortal). And replace the Destroyer Chainblade with a special Destroyer Warscythe.

The problem with quantum shielding is that the rules don't increase the front and sides by 2 anymore, they just make make them a flat 13 front and side. So at best, quantum shielding would just make it 13/13/12.

In complete honesty, I can't picture Necrons using a giant, humanoid shaped walker, ala the Imp. Knight. I think it would be more Canoptek themed and be more of a giant insectoid.

That said, the suggested weapon armaments would make for a good substitute for a Necron-themed Knight. A Destroyer Warscythe would need some work though as the biggest selling point for those would be the Armorbane rule, which is nullified by being a D weapon. Perhaps it can have a sweep attack sort of rule, in that it trades all of its attacks for one sweep attack, but it hits all models in base contact within it's forward arc.
