Green Glow and Necrons

If you are a Necron fan, you should not miss this month White Dwarf. It has everything about Necron and its new release miniatures.

On a temptation level, I must say, flipping through the pages of all those robot technology and gauss tech in the White Dwarf, sure make temptation feels at its peak, haha. In my earlier post, looking at those leaked pict already, temptation was already slight. With White Dwarf full pictorial, wow. The thoughts of collecting did occur, and its so strong….. arrggghh…. but in the end I managed to brush those addictive thoughts aways and remain in pain, haha. Probably I will get the Codex for some reading pleasures.

On them miniatures range, the new sculpts looks good. Most of the new range are nicely sculpted and up to date. Guess seeing the real miniatures then I can see how the Necron live up to the new sculpt and details. I still recall my Dark Eldar experiences, seeing the real miniatures, I was drawn into the pain immediately. Will pop by my local stores and have a real look at those minatures next week or so.

And, those green arcylic plastic rod are still around. Looks like the basic Necron warriors is still the same sculpt repackaged and with green rods. I thought GW would be doing away with the green rods, but guess not. The new range though does not seem to have any green rod, but mostly all the parts that are green, are painted green glowing.

So much for greens, will be looking forward to the Codex next week! Cheers!

Necron and Thoughts

I am sure by now all the Necrons fans must be celebrating or are in preparation for the release of the new Necrons coming soon somewhere in November. I guess this would mark one of the last few races where it’s not updated since like coming to almost 10 years already. The last race that was so long, was the Dark Eldar, which had a fantastic release with awesome miniatures a while back.

I guess everyone would be having expectation of a reasonable well updated codex with awesome miniatures. After the long break, the rules should be tuned to the current updated 40k rules. Guess we will have to see how it is when the codex is release. Probably I will get the Codex and have a good read. To collect, oh no… would love to, but I just have to pass and concentrate on my current armies, and also my new interest in contest and other smaller brands of miniatures.

For the miniatures range, if you have not seen the leaked pictures, check it out at BOLS and Beast of War sites. First impression, the miniatures range do look good. But after much observing the pictures… it comes to one question everyone would have. Where are all the acrylic green rods for the Gauss weapons…? Seems like GW has done away with extras of the green acrylic. I am guessing probably its cost maybe? No point creating an extra mould for just the plastic green rods, where nowadays with the new moulding technology they can squeeze every single options into one sprue. As with the usual what GW is trending, all possible options would most likely be available in a single sprue, pretty much like the Dark Eldar and Grey Knights.

Then next question that leaves me pondering is the leaked pictures. I am sure all of us have heard of GW being tight about new releases and rumours and such. Is is all a marketing and publicity stunt? Saying its policy is to keep rumours tight lipped, then secretly dropped some leak images and causing a stir. If it is serious about tight lipped, then it should be done like what Apple is doing… no one knows anything at all till it official announcements. Well, I still prefer rumours and tiny bits of news here and there. This way it will keep fans all peeled and in high anticipation, along with ready budgets. Well, for now… let’s wait and see how cool the Necrons would be like… Cheers!
