Bring back the old Necrons!

Post by DoomDwarf » Mon Dec 21, 2015 4:40 pm

Bring back the old models!!! The new units are incredibly well thought out, it's a shame the models for them aren't. Sign this petition to make GW aware of the amount of orbs they are ruining their own models with.

People complaining about models should learn about the joys of converting. You can always find the old models on Ebay anyway. I find quite a lot of them for Chaos Space Marines. Beside, it's not like they will listen you anyways... About the old fluff, I prefered it honestly. Squabbling space pharaon robots aren't very threatening. I prefered the silent killing machines led by the terrifying C'tans. But, we all know it won't come back. Sorry for being pessimistic, but we need to be realistic. GW doesn't care much about their customers.

We're not doing this soley for GW's sake, we simply want to see how many people agree. Please sign if you agree. What have you got to lose, apart from some orbs here and there. Thanks for the response too.

Right? He must get a lot of flak from all of his gaming buddies. Poor guy.

I don't mind the new models. the only thing i want back is the flavorful rules.

reanimation protocols shouldn't be FNP
crypteks should have all the cool options they had before
pariahs and wraiths should come back
phase out was cool
monoliths should be as powerful as they look
The question is, do oil your war machines... or feed them

I'm sure a compromise could be arranged :D And I completely agree about Monoliths

He gets loads of "flak" for buddying up Necrons and Blood Angels, and rightly so.

I'm not sure about Doomdwarf, but I think the models for 3rd edition were the best, and those are what he means by the 'old models' and the models created for 5th and 7th are not great

No one, although I actually think that looks awesome. Apart from the gun, that's awful. And yes I am referring to 3rd edition model STYLE. The new units would look brilliant in the old style
