I have a actual copy of the imperial infantryman's uplifting primer, take your baseless heresy claims elsewhere foul xeno sympathizer
Necrons ain't shit
Love me some angry space skeletons
I'm not that familiar with 40k lore. I'm assuming Necrons are basically cyber zombies?
RIP your wallet.
The internet has ruined me. I definitely misread that at first . . .
What does this sound like?
You would be correct sir, more like Mummies and Tomb lords.
It's continually fascinating to me that 30 years after its invention, WH40K became its own class of memes.
Is that necron slowpoke?
Last one looks like a Slowpoke In Necron form, which is fitting.
They used to be terrifying, entombed space zombies. Then 5th edition came around they enjoy giving hugs now.
Bit more complex, but basically they are space Egyptians who got tricked by an old god into their current form, which is space mummies.
But hoes and tricks
Shit. 40k needs Colonel O'Neil.
What is the diff between a tau fire warrior and a tau skull warrior
I mean tricked sure but could be worse....
hey lore wise on the upside if the Tyranids win the necrons will be fine due to them being al machine
Cyber-Skeletons with flying laser pyramids who murdered their star eating gods and now use their shattered remains as if they were Pokemon.
GIVE US BACK PARIAHS PROPERLY GAMES WORKSHOP!
lick on these guns and suck a dick.
Back in the day they were basically that. Then a certain codex decided they'd be better having politics and f*cking egyptian bullshit...
Seriously why did we go from walking tanks that repaired themselves and were scary as all getout to f*cking Khermi cosplayers in spesh?!
The Tau Skull Warrior is a reference to the PS2 game and is a really really bad representation of actual fire warriors.
We must muster together children of the imperium. And flee, flee as far away from robot zombies as possible.
No seriously in that game you fight and defeat a LORD OF CHANGE as a tau warrior. Without mechs. Without squads. Just 1 frigging tau against
They werent even tricked really. They were like ow our sun gives us cancer, and the old ones were like... You wanna not die at 25?
A GREATER DEMON and somehow you get away with that shit... Let's just say it's trippy. And sadly nowhere near as cool as it sounds.
Ancient race tricked by false gods into abandoning their mortal bodies for immortal metal ones...being in fact an eternity of servitude
He's busy with some other stuff right now. Will Teal'c be able to satisfy your needs?
I'm assuming this is a joke. I don't know, what's the difference?
Well fuck, that sounds awesome.
Is there a good book that would introduce me to 40k? I would really like to read some of the books...
I move and shoot.
Can you elaborate on that? Like was it as broken as it sounds and how did they get around it. I recall the originals but nothing since
If it's not Rogue Trader it's for kids. You are however allowed to play 3rd Edition with your younger cousins and niblings, nothing newer.
What a great and surprisingly accurate analogy. I love it
Upvoting solely because of Necron Slowpoke
whats a necron?
Not really. Necron Gauss weapons always caused damage on a penetrate roll of 6. It didn't matter the tank's armor value, but it would only >
take off a single hull point if the weapon str was too low to actually penetrate, which meant there was no roll on the damage table to see >
the damage caused the vehicle to explode or wreck or become immobilized or whatever.
Necron's are a bunch of edgy grandpa's that just want everything dead.
And fight against guys who simply worship the shattered remains of theirs
My first army was old crons. I hated the space-tomb kings shit they came out with. The new spyder model was cool though.
Tin'ead gitz iz da wurst. Deyz take all da dakka an' looty gubbinz wiv'em when wez krump em.
Could start with The Last Chancers, or Tanith First and Only
Even Caiphas Cain. Those are about Imperial Guard. Then move on to Horus Heresy
like normal dial up I suppose
Necrons appearing from nowhere inside IMGUR? But it would take a tactical genius to...CREEEEEEEEEEED!!!!!
*rolls 60 reanimation dice*
Grab the rule book and a codex and have at it lol
Yeah but at least they have higher ap than bolters.
Wasn't the old ones, was the c'tan. They later fought the old ones
Ancient Egyptian cyber space zombies to be exact but you're pretty much right
He means 4e, back when a 6 on a Gauss Rifle meant a roll on the glancing table which could wreck a Land Raider
XENOS SCUM! PURGE 'EM!
Robot space mummies that destroyed their false gods and use their shattered remains as weapons, as I understand it.
They'll still get destroyed, just not eaten.
Didn't the Necrons create the c'tan in the first place, by trapping entities in artificial forms with all of the knowledge of the Necrontyr?
But the tyranids actively avoid any worlds with necrons on. so if you live on a wolrd and nids suddenly change direction away from you 1/2
2/2 Wonder why and then go, oh shit nids run from crons that means there are crons on this planet
It's more the C'Tan came to them as Gods and they Necron built bodies for them. The C'Tan spirits are as old as the universe.
Nah, the c'tan were free floating star eating dickbags well before then, they have existed since time began.
It also helped that the Necrontyr vehemently hated the Old Ones.
Yes, but they weren't the C'Tan until the Necrons stuck them in robotic bodies and gave them a shit load of knowledge.
As a Chaos player, I never had the misfortune of facing them, but from my experiences playing Dark Crusade, fuck Necrons.
the internet is worlds main source of heresy. been purging for awhile now. we can tell
They also fucking hate the C'tan. But Necrons make the C'tan do shit anyway.
lol good one
SOI SOI SOI
I mean the shattered remains are still living but all his time is taken up in an eternal fight psychic fight.
Or near it. Just hope you're near Trazyn, who is a cool dude. You'll probably live then.
That's not just any T'au, that's Shas'O Kais! Or, at least, that fire warrior has the name Kais and I'd be disappointed otherwise.
Ahh, I remember playing Rogue Trader. My Explorator basically made Skitarii on the ship as his personal bodyguards.
I always thought Nids avoided them more because 1) like you said no biomass gain, and 2) They tend to ash all life when awoken and the(1)
Tyranids probably don't enjoy a race when they're trying to digest their planets.(2)
I have one too! Have you applied the proper oils and prayers to your lasgun today?
Soi Soi Soi
Actually a LOT of fire caste tau have the Kais name. And it seems he's not farsight (if that's who you meant), tho it does seem he's the
Shas'O Kais from Dark Crusade... Who in that game remembers to actually bring an army!
Im sure that commisar ciaphas cain will be happy to deal with these abominations
Fuck Imohtek, Fuck reanimation Protocols, AND FUCK NECRONS. But +1.
i want to say screw the ultra smurfs... but at this point... screw the ultra smurfs
THEY KNOW WHAT POKEMON IS!! RUN FOR IT!!
we do. and we destroy it. NOW GTFO!!
In what, if you don't mind?
In what what? I misunderstand your question
Yeh, datz y 'umie gitz iz dumb. If yaz dakka da 'ole rokk, den derez nuffin left fer lootin'.
You said your first army, was meaning if you were referring to the TableTop or a specific game. Sorry for not being clear.
Ah 4e was before my time. Thanks.
Thanks for the insight
Undead Egyptian Terminators from the Depths of Time
Then they rebelled, turned the "star gods" into Pokemon, and went to sleep for 60 million years.
My favorite thing about the 'crons: Of all the factions, their leaders seem the most likely to shout over-the-top evil villain cliches.
"Foolish mortals! You dare interfere with the great works of the galaxy's rightful lords?! You will pay for your insolence!"
No, the c'tan are primordial, feasting on energy. Living beings being the yummiest energy. The neurons are beings put into metal bodies.
They didn't just put them in to metal bodies, though. The bodies also had a connection to the entirety of the Necron's knowledge.
So when I say they weren't the C'Tan until they were put in to the bodies, I mean putting them into those bodies literally changed them.
You really want too try to fist a grey knight?
That is the point.
Yeah, I meant Shas'O Kais from DC, seems like a reasonable assumption considering what he did in the Fire Warrior game and in lore.
wtf is a necron
Gubbinz fer grabs an yaz blow it up? I'z dun get 'umiez at all. Fraid uv gettin' yaz shiny 'andz dir'y?
can someone get a translator i cant understand this fuck.
And in no way can solo any daemon but a horror squad.
Scroll up, there were pictures. =)
Just stay off their lawn and you're usually OK.
*Adjusts bionic photoreceptors* He said you're afraid of getting your hands dirty, Knight-Captain.
Does the thing even know what a grey knight is?
I doubt it truly understands anything, Knight-Captain. That it carried on a conversation at all is impressive by their standards.
Sadly, they think the entire Galaxy is their lawn.
A friend and i planned to draw a comic about tge intro of the soulstorm game with a nercon lord who jas a hangover because he had a party...
Been a long time, since I played 40k, but I always hated people playing necrons...
It was 20$ at the Seattle battle bunker
With the eldar and the screaming of the space marines and the adeptus sororitas had just awaken him.
Somehow. Yes. Been a species that was short-living and made a deal with divine things (?) to become long-living. Well, now they're metal.
Holy fuck you lucky bastard. Used copies go for a few hundred on Amazon/Ebay
Oh right, yeah. Tabletop back in..3rd ed i think it was, or possibly 4th. I can't remember if it was the black or the blue brb
Im not sure what you mean when you say "knowledge", but their necrodermis bodies allowed them to interact with the physical world
I mean the knowledge of the entire Necron race. Everything the Necrons knew (supposedly) was given to the C'Tan through their new bodies.
That commissar has a grenade in his hand
Necrons are not fast. They're slow as fuck
Their arrival with the new rules made me quit WH 40k :/
Y'all mother fucker need khorne
also the new reanimation protocols is ridiculous and that's putting it kindly
Ugh, gauss rifles...wait, who I am kidding, every fucking rifle. You can take down my skimmers with 6s on a bolter
Please don't remind me
Waddya mean placing first then stealing inititive isnt balanced. Also, I come back from the dead. That's cool, right?
Last I read was 5th edition's codex. What's the 6ths like?
we're on 8th edition now buddy
warhammer-community.com/2017/05/31/warhammer-40000-faction-focus-necrons/ basically they come back unless the unit is wiped
Cyber zombies that can reanimate themselves. Pretty savage, great back stories though. They pop up in Soul Drinkers series if interested
That was the first one I started reading and I fell in love. (they come in around 5th "book" of 6 If I remember
Mines from the first printing they ever did, I can't find it online
lol I want to see that !!
I am very sorry. I think this project is canceled. There is a big problem with my skill of drawing.
I want to give an upvote but I must give a downvote due to a dump. Sorry.
Nah I literally don't know I've only played space marine, Dawn of War 1 and DoW 2 and don't know much else
You'd have preferred only one picture ?
Depending on your definition of god, all of WH40K gods are false, or all are real.
"False gods" in the sense that the C'tan kind of mimicked the form of the old Necrontyr's gods in order to gain their trust, iirc
Ah. I don't think that tau skull warrior is an actual thing, just that in that pic it's on skulls. I thought you were setting up a joke.
Lore wise the necrons fight the tyranids because if they let them consume all life they won't be able to find a new vessel species 1/2
to transfer back their souls from machine to body 2/2
Nope. I downvote all dumps. It's just pointwhoring. If you'd called it something else you'd not earn a downvote.
What would you have said instead ?
