They ticked all three boxes for me. They had cool miniatures (finally), they had cool background (finally) and their playstyle looked both fun and a change from my usual preference for glass cannon types.
Anyway, I received a load of boxes for Christmas, but I have been waiting to have everything I need before I get started. For the first time ever I am trying out resin bases (I finally got sick of glueing sand to stuff), and they arrived a few days ago. I've begun the slow process of assembling my robotic forces, so expect some Necrons to show up on the blog sooner or later.
|Necron Ambassador. Look, he brought a gift! It's either a rez orb or a delicious red apple.|
I'm getting a little ahead of myself. Most of my Necron army was a gift from my ever generous brother, and he included the following Lord, painted up in the scheme of his own Necron Dynasty. He also wrote a whole load of in character notes to go along with the gifts, because we are both huge nerds and that is how we roll.
