Necrons In White Dwarf

I Peed A Little...

The Necron Codex, long awaited for over 9 years, is about to be released. And so, leaks keep pouring in. As of yesterday, however, the newest WD was released and with it a focus on Necrons (go figure.) Courtesy of the fine author TastyTaste over at BoK here is a free link to the Necron-pages of the newest White Dwarf. Inside you'll find more defined fluff and rules that we'll be seeing next week. You can find the PDF here.

Rumors: (Necrons Round 2) Necron Fluff Leaked

I keep getting woken up from sleep by the most delightful things! McRibs, gin and tonic and most importantly Necron leaks! This morning we had a plethora of leaks via Yakface of DakkaDakka delving not only into more rules, but tons of fluff! Now I have somewhere to be and only a few more minutes to post about this, but I'll be providing commentary later, for now be sure and let us know what you think! The full list of leaks after the break:

Rumors: Necron Photos Leaked and Discussion

Just a quick link here for you Necron followers of TLA. I posted up a listing of Necron leaked photos and discussion on each picture over at MWC. Head on over and check it out! There's some pretty snazzy looking models in our future. I'm particularly fond of the Lychguard myself.

For the C'tan!

Picture Dump: Gametime Without The AdMech?

As the next version of the fandex draws to a close (still not giving a set date,) I've gone into a lull of playing with the fandex. Closed-beta playtesting ended last month and since then I've directed my attention elsewhere.
Which may or may not have included some resin-casting....

Review: Ultramarines Movie

Yes, I know. I'm extremely late on the whole Ultramarines movie viewing. Much to my chagrin, I was put-off on taking the time to see it as friends informed me the animation was almost painful to watch. While other reviews I had read made smaller mention of this imperfection, the overall assessment of the movie seemed to be an acclaimed one, critically or otherwise. After almost a year since the movie has come out, I've found a few things in the movie I don't feel others have picked up on. More after the break.

(Poll Closed) Conversion: Caminus-Priest Kitbash

Just a quick post. The poll for whether or not to keep this test model's legs or rip them off in a violent fashion finished last week and it looks like the legs are here to stay. I'd like to thank all those who participated, as this is how the model will remain for the fandex itself.

More conversions on the way, and hopefully a fandex as well. ;)
