Once a proud race whose empire spanned the stars, the Necrons now exist purely to serve their omniscient masters, inescapably bound to the malignant will of the ancient deities that granted their immortality.
At the vanguard of their forces are the Necron Lords, their tattered shrouds flowing in an unearthly breeze as they silently compel their skeleton warriors forward.
The Necrons are an alien race ancient beyond imagining . . . and mine are more ancient than most, as my Necron army is made up solely of the original metal Necron models.
It’s not the largest army at the moment, but I do have some more of these old style models waiting to be painted – although I’ve yet to uncover them in my audit.
At the moment I have the following painted:
1 Heavy Destroyer
There’s also a converted walker which cannot be used under the current codex.
The Immortals are probably my favourite models in the army, although the Destroyers run them close.
One of the drawbacks of the army is the lack of choice. This isn’t improved by using the older models, which cover only one Elite choice: Immortals.
If there’s little choice amongst the Elites there’s no choice under troops with the Warriors the only selection. I usually run 30 of these.
There’s more choice here.
First up are my scarab swarms, again they are the older metal models.
Then there are the Destroyers. These are lovely models, probably not as useful in game terms as they once were due to true LOS, but I still prefer them to the current models.
The Heavy Destroyer is basically a Destroyer with a much larger gun.
I’ve been considering adding a Monolith to the army. I’ve even gone as far as to buy one and attempt to paint it. Although it just doesn’t look right in the matching white/gold paint scheme, so it hasn’t been completed.
The army does however contain one more model – a converted walker/dreadnought concoction.
The arms move and as can be seen from the shot below the canopy detaches to show the Necron Warriors within and his trophies.
