It's not impossible of course and it would hardly be a big shock if there were some significant changes to the two currently available C'tan.

However rumours of the new necron codex are at this time as illusive as unicorns searching for the loch ness monster.

Even with the forgeworld necron that will be shown at gamesday uk I doubt we'll get a lot, seeing as it apparently "has nothing at all to do with any necron codex"

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

I think they actually said it had nothing to do with a new Necron codex; my bet is it's a jaw-dropper of a C'tan model, possibly even The Dragon or Outsider. I can see FW doing the Void Dragon, draped from head to toe in cables, wires, masses of mechadendrites sprouting from it's spine...

A way to justify the apparant lack of power for what is supposed to be a god is that the C'tan have essentially awoken from the longest hibernation imaginable. The Nightbringer almost starved to death and required outside assistance to arise. The Deciever is described as being the weakest of the remaining C'tan, and is also undoubtedly very hungry. Both are probably trapped in a cycle; they need to consume billions to regain their former strength, but they aren't strong enough to do so. Their Necron servants are also very slowly rising, meaning they don't have the concentrated force to subjugate entire worlds... yet.

yes, sorry you are correct there

it was stated to be a necron,
also I very much doubt that it would be a new c'tan,
if there were going to be a new c'tan I can't see it being released before the codex and I would find it hard to imagine that forgeworld would be doing the model.

Nonetheless, imagine Forge World doing an upscaled and more detailed C'tan model, in a similar vein to how they did the Chaos Greater Daemons

Wait there's a hobbycraft in Cardiff? where?

New Crons would be epic, hope its sooner rather than later, they deserve an update

Or as detailed as the FW Avatar, but bigger.

On top of that, I heard a rumour that FW are releasing a new Necron model? Anyone confirm this?

Here for a start. It's been known for a while that FW will have a Necron model for Games Day.

Um yeah, that's exactly what we were talking about; I can imagine one of the FW sculptors doing a C'tan as a pet project.

I doubt it would be a tomb stalker. The fact that it has NOTHING to do with the new codex means that I think that it is a current codex necrons unit entry but done better.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT
