As far as I know they aren't calling it a "megalith". I just needed a filler name until we had the real one. I appreciate you bashing my inability to name things by the way.

That has always been a horrid conversion.

I imagine the new one shares quite a bit with the concept. I agree that it will have some differences and likely a crazy name. Necron Star Eater Fortress maybe?

Megalith comes from Beasts of War who took some childrens toy that kinda looked necronish and said they had an exclusive preview of the next apoc mini.


Anyway, Naftka got his site restored and posted this bit.

I am getting small bits of information regarding the Apocalypse Supplement release.

Apocalypse
Only the Imperial Guard and Orks are not getting an a new Apocalypse vehicle, but they could be getting new apoc aircraft. It seems so that all armies will have 1 apoc vehicle and 1 aircraft.

Forgeworld
We should be seeing a FW apoc book same month as GW apoc release covering all vehicles and aircraft from previous apoc books
"It seems so that all armies will have 1 apoc vehicle and 1 aircraft."

As a Sisters of Battle player I seriously doubt this...

"all armies except the Sisters of Battle" would probably be a more accurate statement...

Maybe Sisters will just get variants of whatever the Guard have. I wouldn't mind a Stormlord if the Lascannons were Multi-melts or Heavy Bolters instead. It'd be the cheapest way for them to give the girls something afterall.

Granted that's being optimistic as hell, but I prefer to throw GW under the bus for the stuff they do, not the stuff they may or may not do.

To be fair. There is a fluff reference for the Megalith. It's in the 5th Ed Necron codex. But the description tells me it would be massive. It was disgorging Monoliths from its hull. Sadly, I do not have the codex handy for quotes or page numbers.

When you take out the smilie like that when quoting me it looks much more asshole-ish. :/

Well either way until we get a better name we need something to call it, and I don't feel "Betty" is an appropriate choice.
