Fifth Game With The Necrons

(Beautifully Painted By Sigur)
A BatRep About Necrons? Oh No; This Is The Story Of Vulkan The Un-Woundable...

With the holidays and whatnot, I only managed to get in one game with the Necrons this week. It was a large game, though, which I do enjoy most of the time. This week I wanted to try out a list that I made a few weeks ago that looked good on paper, but I wasn't really sure how it would perform. The list I made had a single purpose; anti-horde. While we don't see much horde in 5th with vehicles being the end-all be-all solution to pretty much everything, the option to make a list is in the pages of the new Necron codex and I wanted to give it a go. Unfortunately I probably ended up losing some friends this week... More after the jump.

Shout Out: Stolen Eldar Army

A quick shout out, today. And I actually meant to post this earlier in the week when I saw it; sadly I'm easily distracted by shiny objects and have had little to no sleep this month. Anywho, R3con over at Mi40k has posted about his buddy's Eldar army being stolen right out of his car. The above picture may or may not be the perpetrator and may or may not be a Google image. Who knows... So spread the word, if you spot his Eldar (info found here) be sure to jump over and contact the victim so he may be reunited with his time, work and effort in the form of space elves again.

PS, I find it ironic his occupation is Insurance. Not a fun situation, of course, but I giggled.

Conversion: Imperial Jetbikes Kitbash

This week I'll be looking at a conversion that I've worked on for about a month as the parts for it slowly rolled in. You may remember my review of these bikes over at MWC a ways back, and that's what I used for the bike itself. This wasn't the tricky part, though, but I'll get to that in a bit. After the break I'll walk you through the steps taken to create a Skitarii Jetbike found in my FanDex.

Fourth Game With The Necrons

Welcome back my fellow self-repairing brethren and sister..en? Growing up in an overly religious household, I grew to loathe Sundays. What was to be the weekend for all of my friends was another day of sitting quietly in a large room full of equally-bored children at a desk with nothing to do but count how many little hole thingies there were in the ceiling tiles, praying to god (pun intended) that the day would end. If organized religion is your thing; more power to you and I mean no offense, it's just not my bag. Getting back on point, Sundays used to be the bane of my week. Now that I'm in my twenties and capable of allowed to make my own decisions, things are much more enjoyable and Sundays are one of the best days of the week. Why? It's 40k day! This week I went into a team-game scenario with the new Necron dex, something I have yet to do since my first game, and it was quite fun. This game, more than any, I learned a lot about the balance of the Necrons when constructing a list, but I'll go over that in full detail after the jump.

Conversion: Caminus-Priest Unit Complete!

Welcome back! Today I've got a project I've had finished for about a week, but with all of this Necron business going on I haven't had a chance to post about. You may remember my Caminus-Priest project and the voting that went along with it. As for the voting, you people wanted legs, so legs you shall have! As for the conversion, I needed two more of these guys to reach the minimum model count for the unit and decided to wrangle some different poses. More pics after the break.

Third Game With The Necrons

Hello readers! This week I managed to get in two games with the Necrons and for this game I attended KHops' abode. KHops is somewhat new to the 40k scene (clarification as he was not happy with this statement; KHops is not a noob,) and so his basement hasn't been overtaken by ridiculous amounts of plastic like Eric's has. What does this mean? It means no proxying for me. It means that the following list should not be scrutinized for its poor make-up as I'm just working with what I've got, here...okay, feel free to scrutinize anyway... Having around 1850pts in Necrons before the new dex, I found myself scrambling to get to 1500pts with the lowered points cost of, well...everything. A full breakdown after the jump.

Shout Out: Porky's List Entry

Warpstone Flux is holding a contest for army list entries and the voting has begun! Now, I didn't have a chance to participate in this contest, so why am I giving a shout out? Well, the Porkster himself has entered an Adeptus Mechanicus list for this contest using my FanDex as a ruleset! Currently Mr. Porky is behind by a couple of votes, so check out the lists here and if you're a fan, vote for him!

More posts on the way!

Second Game With The Necrons

Hello and welcome back. Last time I talked about my first game with the new Necron codex and how it went quite well. After mulling over the book in an obsessive fashion after that game it became apparent to me that I cheated in a few ways and thought I'd researched enough through the book for it to never happen again. Well, it did, but more on that later. For now I'll explain the picture above; the list I was trying to build for a tiny game this week was an AV13 wall at 1000pts. With high point costs on pretty much every vehicle I thought this was impossible, but ended up working out pretty well. More after the break.

First Game With The Necrons

If you haven't checked out my codex review over at MWC for the Necrons, I'll be continuing it all week long. And as someone with a horrible memory, I'll say that if you want to memorize a codex; write a review on it. It's not just helping the community, it's helping me, too. Anywho, tonight I played my first game with the Necron's new rules and it's...umm, powerful. We ended up playing 3 vs 2 with me playing 2000 and everyone else playing 1000. My team was Necrons and IG fighting Dark Angels, CSM Nurgle and Vulcan SM. With 1000pts per player other than myself there wasn't a lot of transports out and while I only needed to bring 2 troops in my list I thought it was fair for me to bring 4 since I was taking more points than everyone else. So let's get to the breakdown.

5th Edition Necrons
A Quick Review

As some of you might know, I'll be doing a full unit-by-unit review of the new Necrons over at MWC later this week when I've had time to mull over the whole thing six or fifty-seven times. Speaking of which, Christmas came early! So last night I received the new Necrons a couple of days early. I'm excited to get started on my review for MWC, but until I've given the book more than a once-over I want to toss a little bit of my opinion on the new rules. More after the break.

Shout Out: KHop And Mr. Lemon

Ooo, Pretty!

It's been a bit since I've posted, but there will be a flood of posts incoming; and that's really what this post is about. With the Necrons coming close to release, I'm slowing down on the AdMech conversions and I'll be pushing out the last few conversion posts on them this and next week. Lucky for me, as you've seen, the newest version of the AdMech FanDex has been pushed out and is available here. I'm still reading your emails and will be updating the rest of the FAQ page eventually; once I have everything figured out on that front. As for right now, I have some AdMech and Necron work for you all. More after the break.
