My personal opinion is that, outside the s. lord, the character options from indomitus are pretty underwhelming.
They’ve either got too few attacks or really situational abilities. And their estimated point cost seems way to high for what they do.
Royal wardens ability is good. But again, situational. And he’s 4 PL, which puts him around 80 points. Plasmancer just seems bad to me. Overlord is still suffering from low attacks. At 5 PL we’re looking at a 100 point buff bot that can only buff one unit a turn still.
I love the look of the new models, and can’t wait to paint them up and get some games in. I’m just becoming more skeptical. I’m have my doubts on if Necrons will really be any better then they currently are in 8th.
I disagree wholeheartedly. These characters are miles better than what we currently have.
Royal Warden's ability is a lifesaver IMO. The ability to fall back and shoot in a midrange army is awesome. It also synergizes really well with the Gauss Reapers everyone has been scratching their head over.
The plasmancer gives us smite. Definitely not the best HQ in the game, but if you've got points to spare why not?
I dunno if you misread the overlord's sheet or not, but he does more than affect one unit per turn now. Only one unit can get his +1 to hit buff, but every Dynasty unit within 6 gets the +1 to move. That's pretty huge now that it affects multiple units and not just infantry.
Points wise, yeah they're expensive. But if RP and Living Metal are reworked into something usable, then there's our usual points premium. Welcome to Necrons
