Im torn, from one perspective they are quite nice kits, but from another I wonder whether we really need another "imperial gun building".

How about a chaos cultist hovel, tyranid spore chimneys, ork scrap tower/tellyporta, Eldar web gate, Tau.. tech-thingy, sisters of battle... no that is taking it too far.

But my point would be that game boards are looking a bit samey, maybe that is the intention. But this release of terrain feels a bit 'safe', though it could balance the two slightly more risky big kits.

Yeh I agree Bubble, it would be good to see some non-Imperial terrain. At least then it means we're fighting in their cities not ours !

Agreed, though I think Orks' stuff can just be easily made from the existing building and some bits/balsa wood. Also, some of your suggestions already exist on Forge World, it wouldn't be hard to convert them in plastic kits.

If you mean the spore chimneys, they sadly stopped making them ages ago and buying them on ebay tends to be very expensive - but the masters must still exist.

I have often wondered why a single terrain kit is not lumped with each army release, GW could even include some rules in the dex.

I'm going to leave this here. I really like the necrons though.

They're changing the names on a lot of the images and making some places take them down... soo.. found some rehosted ones that should stay for a while.













The alternate head on the Blood Knight looks much better then the one we've seen IMO... also... The Necrons have kidnapped Dr Manhattan?

That C'tan shard is awesome, really like the idea of putting that in the middle and tomb spiders (?) on the outside.

Would like to get a better idea of scale, but really think that the Necron players out there are a lucky bunch.

thx for the rehost! I love the necron stuff.

I will have to start buying a wall of martyrs now, that terrain looks pretty cool.

There is this other pic of it:



As you can see its on a large flying stem and looks to be longer then an Ark... so its pretty darn big.

Just a shame that at the $160 usd price its gonna be like 100... ouch my wallet.
