The Necrons were once the rulers of the galaxy. For aeons they slumbered in their stasis-crypts, waiting for the galaxy to recover from the terrible war that almost tore it asunder. Now the Necrons are waking from their dormancy. They seek to destroy the lesser life forms that infest their old domains, and re-establish their rightful rule. They are an utterly implacable race, advancing upon their foes with a terrifying inevitability. Few can stand before their technological might, and those that do will not stand there for long. This Warhammer 40,000 hardback Codex contains all the rules you need to field a Necron army, as well as detailed background information, unit descriptions, accompanying artwork and miniatures showcase. You will need a copy of the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook to use the contents of this book.
Warhammer 40,000 Necron Warriors form the cold heart of a Tomb World's armies. They are implacable, emotionless and terrifying soldiers - the inexorable emissaries of death itself. Unlike higher ranking Necrons, the basic warrior is little more than an automaton slaved to the will of their commander. What Necron Warriors lack in intuition they more than make up for in determination and durability. Once orders have been received, they are completely single-minded and will follow commands through to conclusion without question. Even wounds that would prove fatal to other races are not enough to stop a Necron Warrior from achieving their goal as they can often repair themselves as quickly as they are damaged.
This multi-part plastic boxed Warhammer 40,000 set contains 120 components with which to build twelve Necron Warriors and three Canoptek Scarab Swarms. This set comes with twelve 25mm round bases, three 40mm round bases and three sprues of green Necron Rods. They are supplied unpainted and require assembly - we recommend using Games Workshop Plastic Glue and Games Workshop Paints.
The Warhammer 40,000 Lychguard are the wardens of the nobility, said to be incorruptible and utterly dedicated to their charges. While most Necrons wear a basic suit of living metal, the Lychguard wear huge suits of ancient armour, the likes of which are normally reserved for the nobility. After all, what use is a bodyguard if he cannot defend his master? Most Lychguard are equipped with heavy-bladed warscythes, which they use to inflict killing blows with every strike. Some will carry hyperphase swords and dispersion shields, which are marginally less powerful, but offer increased protection to the unit.
Warhammer 40,000 Triarch Praetorians hold a great responsibility - to ensure that the Necron dynasties never fall. When the Necron race turned to hibernation after the War in Heaven, the Triarch Praetorians chose to remain awake. Now, as the Necrons stir ever more into wakefulness, the Triarch Praetorians have also re-emerged to join the dynastic legions. They will rarely join a battle immediately, preferring to hover above the fray on gravity displacement packs before launching themselves right into the heart of the enemy army. With the devastating rod of covenant at their disposal there is very little that can survive the assault of a Triarch Praetorian.
This Warhammer 40,000 multi-part plastic boxed set contains 111 components with which to build five Necron Lychguard or five Triarch Praetorians. Included in the box are four full sets of weapons, giving you twenty sets of equipment in total. This enables you to kit out units of Lychguard with warscythes or hyperphase swords and dispersion fields; while Triarch Praetorians carry the rod of covenant and can be upgraded to carry voidblades and particle casters. These models come with five 25mm round bases and two Necron transfer sheets. They are supplied unpainted and require assembly - we recommend using Games Workshop Plastic Glue and Games Workshop Paints.
Warhammer 40,000 Destroyers are the deranged agents of annihilation whose sole reason for existence is centred around an unshakeable yearning to quench the flames of life. A Destroyer cares not for borders or allegiances, nor does he make any distinction between the innocent and the damned - all life is his enemy, and all living creatures are his prey. To achieve this mission they will ruthlessly adapt, augment or expunge any facet of their physical form if it will improve their mission of slaughter. Legs are removed in favour of repulsor platforms, arms are fused to the workings of gauss cannons and even the Destroyer's senses are reconfigured to allow them to track their targets more accurately. On the battlefield, these nihilistic warriors will shatter enemy formations with heavy fire, before swooping down upon the survivors to ensure that none survive.
This Warhammer 40,000 multi-part plastic boxed set contains components with which to build three Necron Destroyers. This kit comes with two small flying stems, one large flying stand, a Necron transfer sheet and a sprue of green Necron Rods. It is supplied unpainted and requires assembly

As the shock troops of the Warhammer 40,000 Necron army, a phalanx of Immortals will strive for victory using every tactic and stratagem at their disposal. They wear heavier armour than Necron Warriors and they can easily withstand a hail of heavy bolter fire that would obliterate a fleshier target. Should an Immortal be felled, its threat is not ended, for its auto-repair systems will set about repairing the damage to its body immediately and it will quickly return to the fray. Few foes can withstand the Immortals' return fire so easily. A single shot from a gauss blaster can punch through most types of armour to strip flesh from bone. There can be no hiding from the Immortals.
For countless millennia, Warhammer 40,000 Deathmark Squads have served the Necron nobility as snipers and assassins. Even when they were beings of flesh and blood, Deathmarks had a reputation for cold-hearted precision and patience. Now, housed in tireless metal bodies, Deathmarks are more deadly than they ever were in the Time of Flesh. Like most Necrons their technology lies far beyond the realm of mortal comprehension and they can effectively slip in and out of dimensions at will. Their victims will assume that they have been ambushed, that the Deathmarks teleported onto the battlefield. The reality is that they were already there, waiting for just the right moment to lay their trap and catch their prey.
This multi-part plastic Warhammer 40,000 boxed set contains 80 components with which to build five Necron Immortals or five Necron Deathmarks. The set comes with plenty of devastating weapons, including gauss blasters and tesla carbines for the Immortals and synaptic disintegrators for the Deathmarks. These models come with five 25mm round bases and two Necron transfer sheets. They are supplied unpainted and require assembly - we recommend using Games Workshop Plastic Glue and Games Workshop Paints.
The more aggressive Warhammer 40,000 Necron Overlords fight not on foot, but rather from the deck of a Catacomb Command Barge - an armoured, repulsor-driven skimmer. While embarked upon a Command Barge, a Necron Overlord is able to oversee the battle, ensuring that his troops are engaged with appropriate targets and that everything is going to plan. More often than not he will become bored of watching the battle and command the barge's pilot to fly him into the midst of the action, where he can launch daring attacks on unsuspecting enemy units, his warscythe decapitating his foes as he flies past.
Warhammer 40,000 Annihilation Barges are the Necrons favoured anti-infantry support platforms. Each is armed with a linked pair of tesla destructors - enormous energy cannons that fire ferocious arcs of eldritch lightning. The tesla destructor is primarily an anti-personnel weapon, though only the most heavily armoured tanks can risk its wrath with utter impunity. Its energy discharges wreak terrible harm on living targets, searing their flesh and boiling their blood. Furthermore, the bolts will often leap from target to target before they are finally grounded, leaving a trail of smouldering carnage across a broad swathe of the battlefield.

This kit comes with one two small flying stems, one large flying base, one 25mm round base and two Necron transfer sheets. This kit is supplied unpainted and requires assembly - we recommend using Games Workshop Plastic Glue and Games Workshop Paints.
