[QUOTE=LeonS;35699770]hi how was this fun i just wanted 2 play some dow2 :(([/QUOTE] grammars, probably
[QUOTE=Devodiere;35697954]A non-modular design and lack of consciousness transfer capabilities are very possible. Long distance control is also iffy as it is subject to time delay, interference from both environment and enemy combatants, and additional redundant hardware for sensory input. As there is no weakness by exposing the controller due to their own toughness, this is not an issue. [/QUOTE] *lack of consciousness transfer capabilities* *aliens who transferred themselves into robotic bodies when the universe was still young* Yeah, okay.

Ive quite blatantly gone for a gunline list with absurd amounts of MEQ and TEQ killing capability because literally everyone at my local GW takes Space Marines and the variant codexes. If I end up against a player with a different army ill just switch to my Templars.

[QUOTE=ForgottenKane;35697325]They're fucking robots, why do they need controls if they can just plug themselves in?! Even then, why can't they just use wi-fi, damnit![/QUOTE] Because all giant mechs need a character flaw! A weakness! The cockpit opens up sna- wait I'm not Otacon.

Necron vehicles probably has crew to repair shit. [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] Mount one on the tank.

Didn't you post this exact same picture earlier in the thread? Like around the 20 page mark... [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] [img]http://i.imgur.com/FBOQr.jpg[/img]
[QUOTE=Zero-Point;35700296]*lack of consciousness transfer capabilities* *aliens who transferred themselves into robotic bodies when the universe was still young* Yeah, okay.[/QUOTE] Just because they did it once doesn't mean they can do it whenever they want at will. The initial transfer of consciousness into an inorganic form is one thing, but moving it around between further inorganic forms is another, one they might not be able to do.
If I did, whoops. Looking at the rules for the Deimos Predator Executioner, all I can say is: :flashfap:
from what i understand the necron were transferred into their metal bodies by a massive and unholy eldritch machine created with the help of the c'tan

The initial transfer of consciousness into an inorganic form is one thing, but moving it around between further inorganic forms is another, one they might not be able to do.[/QUOTE] Transferring a living thinking being into a machine body is hard. Sticking a USB flash drive in a necron's ass and downloading his personality is easy in comparison. Also am I the only one who thought about invisible necrons when I read [QUOTE=Etcetera;35696187]I still think Necron vehicles shouldn't have visible crew.[/QUOTE] ? Also as my final point: There are scarabs and therefore even if it's not possible to transfer consciousness it's possible to make shit that can kill people and destroy vehicles and doesn't look human therefore the triarch can be a robot with no personality. I know if I ever start a newcron army I won't put crew on my vehicles and that includes my transport barges, phasing in and out of the barge is the way to go.
Really, the one thing that new 'crons miss, is a giant Warrior head with spider legs, as a Heavy Support choice. With Gauss Eye Lasers.

That just looks rather silly.

I bet Creed could hide a thousand of those in a Guardsman's pocket, then upon the soldier's death be released all at once in a giant attack, mimicking a smashed pregnant spider.

Dark Heresy. Thatguy123 has become a daemonhost. His flesh is charred, burnt to ash and cinder as though forged in the heart of a Hab-Fire. His muscles are snakes, twisting and turning, they wrap about his skeleton, keeping him aloft. About him, insects crawl from the shadows, statues and paintings weep blood, it drips upwards. Everyone can taste blood in their mouths. This ungodly creature has manifested in a slummy apartment in the midst of a shocked Pheta Cell. Fuck yeah Dark Heresy.
I'm not going to say sorry. [editline]26th April 2012[/editline] Some things are worth fighting for. Or running away from a daemonhost while rest of party deals with it.
Geza is no more. He has left the bloody puddle that is his body to become one with the Omnissiah. "Die if you must, but not with your spirit broken" I have fulfilled the divination - Geza

I kinda like the newcrons: [img]http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-OT-4CQhZmqw/T5eET_5G5II/AAAAAAAAMQo/cxde-GEtRKg/s1600/bols-dp-0629.jpg[/img]

[QUOTE=cyclocius;35723699]You treat that thing with respect dammit.[/QUOTE] I even named it. Apparently Geza told me that it sounded like "Eat it" in Hungarian. Makes sense, as daemons will get a mouthful.
