reading the fluff in the rulebook gave me an idea, different levels of warrior depending on how many times they had been repaired.
eg
fresh warriors - stubbon and I increase
normal warriors - as is
referbished ones - slow and purposful

only an idea but what do you guys think?

makes little sense seeing as by now most necrons would have been fixed many, many times, if you went by those rules most necrons wouldn't be able to move

i'm talking about the difference between hundreds of times (fresh) and hundreds of thousands (even millions) of times (slow)

its a way to get more troops (as scarabs, even though they are awesome, wouldn't help the current situation not being able to claim objectives)

Damn I actually like this idea and I don't even play Necrons. It would stand to reason even for the most advanced "race". But given GW new move to remove any and all personality from armies I highly doubt they would do something along these lines.

But again sick idea.

I can understand the tiered lord structure as apocalypse does touch on this briefly. Removing the C'tan from the army...not likely. GW in all their wisdom will probably make scarabs troop choices... what a great help that would be....

Did I mention that I like scarabs...
they probably will remove the c'tan after all they are on par with the chaos gods, they are suppoed to be unable to die.

but then again the chaos gods dont ride to war with their soldiers personally like the ctan did so if they do move ctan to apocalypse then i would be fine with it.

Never doubt the incompetence of your commisar.

In a way the Chaos Gods do ride to battle, all their daemons are part of their life essense - each daemon is a part of their god made manifest.

The C'tan are physical Gods - and the versions we are using atm are just a tiny part of their essense encased in Living Metal.

P.S. Just a thought: what about making Heavy Destroyers Heavy 3? That way they might make it into lists. Heavy 3, S9, AP2 anyone? Is anyone suggesting that the most technologically advanced race that there ever was in the galaxy could not invent one? Points might go up a bit though...
As awesome as the would be it would make heavy destroyers either a) to powerful and won't happen or b) so costly in points they will rarely be taken

I think making the C'tan the titan equivilent for the necrons would be AWSOME!!! Think of what kind of models forge world could cook up for that?

And, has anyone noticed that in the back of the necron codex it mensions that there are necron warmachines powered by the bodies of victims? Wouldn't THAT be cool.

And there are many references in the codex to a forgeworld-like death machine? lots of the eldar prophesise point twords one. Sound like a Death Star anyone?
