    Some news on the necron second wave



    The Wraiths Look Awesome!
    Stalker looks like a defiler in terms of vehicles.

    Some audiobooks are iffy when it comes to background effects, some are awesome, probably the best is Thunder from Fenris in regards to ambient sounds.

    I still think Necron vehicles shouldn't have visible crew.
    They're fucking robots, why do they need controls if they can just plug themselves in?!

    Even then, why can't they just use wi-fi, damnit!

    Those new Wraiths remind me a bit too much of Trygons. The Triarch Stalker and Szeras look really boss though.

    A non-modular design and lack of consciousness transfer capabilities are very possible. Long distance control is also iffy as it is subject to time delay, interference from both environment and enemy combatants, and additional redundant hardware for sensory input. As there is no weakness by exposing the controller due to their own toughness, this is not an issue.

    I was just wondering if there were any Black Library audio books. I drive a lot and some 40k would be great. Are these coming out soon or what?

    There's quite a few already, you may be able to pick up some from GW shops if not check either the black library itself or amazon or your favourite site.

    Check out the preview for Thunder from Fenris, a taste of the ambient sound effects, with more effects near the end.

    Just because they did it once doesn't mean they can do it whenever they want at will. The initial transfer of consciousness into an inorganic form is one thing, but moving it around between further inorganic forms is another, one they might not be able to do.

    Transferring a living thinking being into a machine body is hard.
    Sticking a USB flash drive in a necron's ass and downloading his personality is easy in comparison.
    Also am I the only one who thought about invisible necrons when I read
    I still think Necron vehicles shouldn't have visible crew.
    ?

    Also as my final point: There are scarabs and therefore even if it's not possible to transfer consciousness it's possible to make shit that can kill people and destroy vehicles and doesn't look human therefore the triarch can be a robot with no personality.
    I know if I ever start a newcron army I won't put crew on my vehicles and that includes my transport barges, phasing in and out of the barge is the way to go.

    Really, the one thing that new 'crons miss, is a giant Warrior head with spider legs, as a Heavy Support choice. With Gauss Eye Lasers.

    Suddenly the enemy army is just one big mass of arachnophobics.

    Even if they're tyranids.

    Dark Heresy. Thatguy123 has become a daemonhost. His flesh is charred, burnt to ash and cinder as though forged in the heart of a Hab-Fire. His muscles are snakes, twisting and turning, they wrap about his skeleton, keeping him aloft. About him, insects crawl from the shadows, statues and paintings weep blood, it drips upwards. Everyone can taste blood in their mouths.

    This ungodly creature has manifested in a slummy apartment in the midst of a shocked Pheta Cell.

    Fuck yeah Dark Heresy.
