Ok I am worried that after I invest in my new Necron army that the book is going to come out and say that Destroyers can no longer move 12in and fire or that the weapon they use is no longer assault 3.

Anybody heard any rumors relating to that or Necrons in general?

Nobody knows until the new codex is released, IF it gets released.

Id say either buy the models and have fun with the current codex, then make any necessary conversions when a new codex is released.
Or else just wait till the new codex is released.... but you could be waiting for a while.

Erm... The Gauss Cannon isn't assault anyway. It is Heavy 3.

Destroyers have always moved like a type of Jetbike, which means they have the Relentless USR = they can move and then shoot any type of weapon as if they didn't move, and can then also assault afterwards.

There is no reason to suspect that GW would make a Fast Attack option slower, because then it wouldn't be fast any more...

The standard BRB rules for jetbikes are that they can move 12" and fire any weapon, so I think its unlikely that destroyers will change too much, especially since they're meant to be fast moving heavy support for the necron army... which is what they are now. I have no idea what the gauss cannon would become in a new codex but as long as they stay jetbikes it doesnt matter if it becomes RF or heavy instead of assault since they ignore it anyway. If anything I would think that it might change to something like heavy 2 AP3 but they should still fill a similar role whatever happens.

Wow 3 Heresy legends in a row thanks guys I am going to stick to my guns and by the destroyers all 12 of them to start. You cant go wrong with Heavy (3) x12 after they move,in a small army that should eat almost anything thanks Tim/Steve for the tactics.

Building 1000
then upgrading to 1500 then 2000 then 2500 for a "Ard Boyz Necron"
Does anybody even play Ard boyz Necron?

i dont think you have that much to fear, its not like Destoryes would become like Carnifex's were to Tyranids... (Staple unit in 4th then next to useless in 5th)

either way i think Heavy destoryers look better anyway x3

I usually play the big games with 3 or 5 other people, making between 6k and 20k per side.

20k points with 3 people a side would take weeks o.o

Not really. The amount of fire-power you can pump out at 20k is really amazing, there isn't much of anything left by turn 3...
