Damn, that cover art is nice. I mean, all the 7th ed books have great cover art, but the 5th ed Necron book one does not appeal to me at all, so it looks even better by comparison.

Welp, there goes the rest of my monies.

I'm really liking where they took the Warscythe, can't wait to see where my robot zombies stand in 7th!

EDIT: whoa, just saw that there are powers of the C'Tan cards. That could make those models a lot more appealing to me.

There are only six cards, so it's not a psychic discipline (no Primaris) - it's probably just reference cards for the C'tan Powers, which are already a thing :(

Maybe not new per se, but they will have updated rules and they might be activated in the Psychic phase.

Awesooome! Very interested to see how accurate the rumors were for changes to mindshackle scarabs, tesla, and such. Mostly mindshackle scarabs.

I didn't see the rumor about mindshackle. Mind repeating it for me? :)

One interesting thing to note is that the codex is 120 pages, which is a good 8-16 pages longer than the past few codexes (codecies?). I wonder if that could represent any material such as rules for different dynasties?

That was one of the rumours too. So..... Now i am tempted as hell to start necrons.

Not sure which rumor site I read it on, either Natfka or BoLS, but the rumor was simply that they're getting nerfed. Nerfed, I say!

Formations, maybe a Lord of War or something. Don't know anything about Necron fluff, but I can't see GW being generous by including rules in a codex that they can use to fill out future supplements. However, I seem to remember some alternate Blood Angels rules and formations for Flesh Tearers, though. Were they from the codex or the campaign books?
