I don't know what your smokin boy, but you're crazy.With 6th Edition Rules - Imotekh the stormlord is a pointless model. The nightfighting rules now just screws everything up and just makes his ability to turn the game into nightfight now affect you seriously! And then his lighting attacks is only on the roll of a 6 on a D6. His model is now pointless
How is he a "boss for challenges" he sucks!I don't know what your smokin boy, but you're crazy.
Night Fighting is still awesome for Necrons as they only have like 6 things that have a range greater then 24" So it still Messes with your opponent waaaay more then it does for you.
He allows you to seizes the Initiative on a 4+. He has a sweet Staff that can fire a S6 AP1 line into COMBAT! He has 2+ and 3++ saves. And his Humiliating Defeat rule makes him a Boss for challenges.
I had actually said units, not weapons, though that is splitting hairs. So there are more weapons, but not many. I would personally rather have my Necrons for a Night Fighting game than say my Dark Eldar. Dark Eldar have Night Vision but just as few weapons as Necrons that shoot far. You can't tell me that with their Night Vision they wouldn't love a 72" gun. And yet, Necrons have the ability to grant Night Fighting to their longest ranged guns with Zandrekh. If you don't like Imotekh, don't use him. I will keep using mine, even if the Lightning is completely random. In large games, you can get pretty lucky.Only 2 units that can only shoot over 24"?
Doomsday Cannon - 72" had counted that
Heavy Gauss Cannon - 36" who uses that? overcosted and pointless given Gauss rules
Tachyon Arrow - Infinite Range who uses that? overcosted, especially for one shot
Eldritch Lance - 36" Cryptek weapon
Harp of Dissnance - Infinite Range Cryptek weapon
Tremorstave - 36" Cryptek weapon
2+ Armor SaveHow is he a "boss for challenges" he sucks!
Fluff ain't rules, so if it's in the little story bits it's probably not in the game, otherwise we'd have Antonius firing off all his Storm Eagle Rockets at once and then where would we be?"This ancient and Ornamental Staff of Light was first wielded by Zehet, founder of the Sautekh Dynasty." But I could be wrong.
At any Rate he also has a Gauntlet of Fire (aka Flamer). So Overwatch goodness.
Ain't that the truth, I had Shrike and 7 Jumpers charge a Sternguard of 10 on the weekend 4 Combi-Flamers and 4 Combi-Meltas, only 3 actually made it to combat.But Flamers are fun for Overwatch. Gauntlets of Fire are not quite as amusing as when someone forgets they're playing 6th and charges a PCS with 4 Flamers, but still good fun.
Hey, I made a mistake. Humans do that. No need to throw it in my face. I was thinking Crypteks and Doomsday Arks as my 2 units because nobody uses Tachyon Arrows or Heavy Gauss Cannons. It doesn't change the fact that Necrons are among the shorter ranged armies and thus less affected by Night Fighting.Archon Dan, you said only "2" units can have them, I was pointing out you had clearly not check up on what you was talking about, therefore is a load of crap.
