MontytheMighty Boy oh boy...sounds like Alpharius would've torn Russ a new one with this super duper Pale Spear of his in Wolf King

Serpion5 Sounds like a pretty standard warscythe. Things normally take someone like a necron lord to lift them, I doubt a primarch would have that much trouble.

I don't think the callidus temple would have too much trouble getting phase swords if some shady necron was making deals on the side.

I also think the Deceiver absorbing the sword story is still perfectly canon, since shards are capable of going rogue. And really, if a Deceiver shard wanted to impersonate a terran noble, who would know? Except for the assassin. Right before she died.

Tezdal Could also be an Old one weapon, predate the Eldar and definitely had warp based weapons.

There there, they can never take away a Callidus assassin stabbing the Deceiver (pretending to be a Terran bigwig) and recoiling in horror as their weapon melts into its back.

...oh wait, who knows if that's canon since the redefinition of how C'tan work and the Necron relationship to them...

ntaw They had C'Tan swords before Necrons had C'Tan shards I think. My memory of 2nd/3rd edition is fuzzy.

Wouldn't doubt for a minute that the big A would have 'cron tech. He likely won it in a poker game with the Silent King....just another thing Szarekh doesn't want to talk about
I dunno. It was cool sure. But the idea that the Callidus temple had that many C'Tan swords to equip all their assassins seemed very off.

Reaper45 With the AL being the AL it really wouldn't surprise me.

Honestly it wouldn't be surprising if the AL is responsible for the Necrons not waking up during the great crusade.

MidnightSun The Anathame was warp-based, as was much of Kinebrach science. I've no idea for how long they existed, although if they were doing Chaos tech like the Anathame I don't imagine the Eldar would have stood by and let that happen.

That, or it's a weapon made entirely our of shitty deus ex machina; it seems to be the Alpha Legion's primary resource.
Fair point about the Kinebrach. Do we know that the Kinebrach pre-date the Eldar (since the Pale Spear is supposed to pre-date the Eldar) and do we know much about the weapons they use? I can't find much apart from the anathemae which was poison based
