That being said, I'd like to keep this focused on our eventual PA release and not so much the current codex. Points updates, rules changes, etc aren't going to happen in PA but new stratagems, new units, and lore updates are all on the table!
To kick off, I don't know if anyone saw this on the Warhammer community page in the WD 450 preview article, but it has me pretty hyped!
Last of the Silent Kings
The undisputed ruler of the ancient Necrontyr empire was known as the Silent King. In the aftermath of biotransference, the ruling Silent King, Szarekh, became disillusioned with the cruel fate of his people, leaving them behind and setting out for the intergalactic void in self-imposed exile. Yet there are rumours now that the ancestral ruler of the Necrons may have returned to the galaxy…
To discern the truth, you’ll have to read this fascinating lore article for yourself!
So, what does this mean for us? I definitely think there are two possibilities here:
1. We will be getting our own uber HQ in PA, and none other than Szarek himself! Chances of this IMO are much slimmer than my second guess, but how cool would that be?!
2. Triarch models may be seeing some kind of new special rule. Given that Triarch units of all flavors serve the Triumverate and the Silent King is the boss of the three, I think it's definitely possible that Triarch units from the dex might see some kind of new thing in PA that gives them a bit more flavor. As they don't benefit from dynastic codes, this could be a really cool feature that would make them a bit more interactive in a Necron army!
Unrelated to that article, I figured I'd post my top wishlist-y things I hope to see in PA as well. You know, because wishlisting is fun
1. A 1 cp stratagem that allows a unit with Gauss weapons to auto wound on hit rolls of 6. Or a 2 cp strat that grants additional wounds on wound rolls of 6. Gauss weapons kind of lost their flavor, and every PA so far has seen stratagems for the armies they cover!
2. A new Pariah-esque unir. Either a single anti Psyker character or a squad. I thought I saw a rumor a while back about this but I can't quite put my finger on when or where. Regardless, I'm all about bringing back some oldcron fluff and PA would be a perfect opportunity to do so.
So, what about you all? Thoughts?
