Hi!

This thread is to discuss the revision regarding the Necron Army Book.

If you are supervising the thread, please state your intent to do so in your first thread.

Thanks!

I volunteered to edit this army list! Any suggestions on changes, additions, removals?

Hello, I would like to report the NetEpic Necron army list that has been existing for a while now:

http://www.stephane.info/download/Necro ... ook_20.pdf

I've written it to match more closely Games Workshop's trend about Necrons in the last, what, ten years?
It has been play tested and went through a number of revisions. It has become the Necron army book for the French community of NetEpic gamers (but the book is in written in English!)

Hey Stephane,

Based on this survey, I think that a majority of players would prefer your army list over the old one that was bundled with the Slann. It's definitely the one that I prefer.

I may start a fresh poll just to make sure that this is still the consensus, but would you be happy for the "community" to adopt your work for development?

Hi!

Given that the Slann are on hold for further development pending proxy availability, I would take the survey at face value and use the list that has been referenced as the favored by the majority. It would also be prudent to update that list with any newer units as well.

I've been thinking that the Necron list needed some enhancements and was not aware of this other list. I'll definitely be giving it a looking over soon. My preliminary looking through the webpage linked to in the thread with the survey looks very promising. I may just have to integrate these into my campaign and see how they work. [On that note, anyone interested in running Necrons in an ongoing campaign?]

Hi!

I would accept the survey result and use the favored list. I would also update that list to add any new units that have been added to the necron and complete it.

The Slann are being sidelined for full development awaiting proxy availability.

Far be it from me to question primarch's commands! (it helps that I agree with them :-))

Units that would need to be added:

* Tesseract Vault
* Tomb Stalker
* Canoptek Tomb Sentinel
* Sentry Pylon
* Tesseract Ark
* Night Shroud Bomber
* Canoptek Acanthrites

Also, as the Obelisk now has a model, do we want to review its stats?

Hi!

Edit, changes, redo any unit you wish to fit the models available. :)

I should mention that the "Custom NetEpic Necron Army book" I did a while ago was thoroughly updated in 2012, a year after the poll took place.

Currently book stands at version number "2.0.1" and introduces many tweaks compared to previous version, thanks to the feedback from the French NetEpic community over its first incarnation, but also to match many units introduced by Games Workshop over the last few years. The book covers last GW Necron codex, although not new niceties introduced by Forge World or Apocalypse.

I advise everyone to update its copy. Both versions of the list can be found here.

Hi!

I look at this in more detail when I get home from work, but if it has been test, I think this should be basis of the army book for Necrons going forward. :)

Edit: Had some time to look at it at work. This army book is really good! I can tell a lot of thought and playtest went into this. VERY nice. :)

Hi!

Status Update:

If you choose to "lead" a particular army, just post a message on the respective army thread as to where you are on reading the books for corrections and such.

This is just to get an idea to see where we are all at. :)

Hi!

Kotrin and Jodrell, given the "custom Necron army book" that was entered up thread, is there anything more to do?

As I mentioned before it is solid, so besides typos, etc, it doesn't seem there is much more to do than port that document into the "gold" format.

Thoughts?

As mentioned above, there are a few models that have been released for 40K since Kotrin's last version.

I have been planning to put together some stats for these new units, but would defer to Kotrin if he would prefer to do it. Perhaps we can split them up between us?

Hi!

Divide it between the two would probably be more efficient, then you could just compare notes and hammer out a consensus on any differences.

Funny how this list may beat all others handily when it comes to completing it the quickest. :)

I'll take all the help I can get! ;D

Thanks guys!

So I made a start sketching out the details for the remaining units. Here's a link (XLSX).
