Air liquide robot wars wikipedia
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair! Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away. For eons I have awaited this day.
The world shall tremble at our war cry. Basically, they're a bunch of soulless, skeletal, alien killing machines led by a robot aristocracy of angry murder machines and bound together by space-technology-magic like atom-flaying weapons that strip their targets down into their constituent atoms. Although they have been around since Rogue Trader albeit only as a single picture categorized as an "unknown xenos species"they have seen great change in air liquide robot wars wikipedia every edition.
In second edition, they were a mysterious faction with essentially zero fluff and only a few models, air liquide robot wars wikipedia of which looked incredibly silly, and Space Crusade introduced them as Chaos Androids oh, the irony However, with third edition they got their own Codex and a bunch of models fleshing them out as an army and introducing their rulers, and the C'tan who were subsequently shoehorned into every major event in the 40k universe.
Games Workshop then promptly forgot they existed and did not update them again until the closing days of fifth edition. This was a controversial move as the Codex was written by Matt Wardwho significantly changed the fluff, making them Newcrons. And that's about it. Do note that although they are space Tomb Kings, they are not necessarily space Egyptians. Gameplay-wise, some used to consider the Necrons to have been unduly OP during their introduction. A respectable amount of evidence can be gathered to grant credence to this viewpoint based on the ease with which they can blow up vehicles using the basic Warrior's Gauss Flayer.
The rapid change in fluff between the 5th edition codex and its predecessor is controversialto put it lightly. While both versions of the Necrons' background have their fans, many would agree that the retconning was drastic and heavy-handed Pariahs were fucking awesome, until they were scrapped by our spiritual liege completely, probably because he realised how awesome they were and couldn't stand the idea of some of the lime-light being stolen air liquide robot wars wikipedia his precious Ultrasmurfs.
On one hand, the Necrons' theme used to be that they were emotionless, implacable alien killers led by Cthulhu-ish star gods that fed on people's souls. Their background was very air liquide robot wars wikipedia and included all sorts of mysterious things about the Necrons and the C'tan that had implications for the whole setting air liquide robot wars wikipedia Warhammer 40, The new codex however gets rid of all that mystery and removes the dangerous feel the Necrons used to have in exchange for giving the individual Necron leaders and armies individual personality, which in turn allowed players to make their armies different.
Whether you're a fan of this or not is up to you; there are pros and cons to both. This was different from the previous situation where basically everyone had an army of similar silver OP doom warriors wielding guns that could rip through tanks as well as infantry and had over the top fluff that made them out to be the baddest sons of bitches in the galaxy.
The 7E Fluff in the codex is actually a lot more complex than those of prior codices with complete sections dedicated to paint schemes and analyses on the markings on them Where the last edition only barely even begins with that while also beginning to fluff out air liquide robot wars wikipedia of the more prominent dynasties.
However, not much of it actually changed from the last codex, so the C'tan are still a thing but air liquide robot wars wikipedia they're treated with even less respect than a warrior, rather than leading the dudesand the Newcrons as a simplified whole are still eccentric, megalomaniacal undead robots. With the Necrons now being somewhat popular, they are about to get a new slew of Forgeworld loving, thanks to the announcement that they are scheduled to be featured in Imperial Armor 12 along with the Minotaurs Chapter Space Marines meaning we may finally get Medusa V Tomb Stalkers and Megaliths, so we don't have to rely on Pylon, Scarab, Barge, Warscythe, and Heat-ray spam to down Titans.
Apparently, 'Necron' is also the title of a bizarre and retarded fetish comic of some sort. The Necrons were introduced, as mentioned before, in Space Crusade as a type of enemy to fight in the form of "Chaos Androids".
Really, the only thing to describe about them here is that they're pretty derpy. Oh, and 2E had a model used for Assholetep.
A long time ago even before the Eldar the Necrontyr lived on a planet blasted by radiation from their sun. Their short lives were filled from beginning to end with cancerAIDSand pain. While all this sun-rape was going on a race of psychically-attuned space precursors called the Old Ones had already built a vast civilization throughout the galaxy.
They created many races or augmented many existing ones leaving humanity alone and generally showed off. Oh yeah, and they are speculated to have been immortal lizards Or the Eldar gods. It's quite confusing in all honesty. The Air liquide robot wars wikipedia met the Old Ones and quickly grew to resent their neighbors, loathing how long their lifespans were by comparison. Resentment grew into bitter jealousy and finally all-consuming hatred.
The Old Ones were indeed much stronger and air liquide robot wars wikipedia Necrontyr assault after assault until the race was clinging to the edge of the galaxy and their lives. The Necrontyr finally encountered and allied with a force known as the C'tan who were beings with immense power over the corporeal world. The realm of the Warp, which the Old Ones used extensively, was anathema to them, and they sought nothing less than the total separation air liquide robot wars wikipedia the real world from the Maelstrom.
Air liquide robot wars wikipedia Necrontyr bargained with the C'tan known as the Deceiver but only the other C'tan called it that for eternal life. The Necrontyr knew him as Mephet'ran "The Messenger" because no one in their right mind would actually trust a guy named the Deceiver. The Deceiver promised the living Necrontyr race immortality and fun times if they would sacrifice their bodies to the gods to be replaced with metallic goodness, made from a very durable and self-repairing material called Necrodermis.
Some of the Necrontyr agreed to the Deceiver's terms but most of them doubted it was a good idea. Using its talent for trickery, the Deceiver lured the doubters into the clutches of its followers and forced them to become Necrons before robotizing its followers. The race had their souls ripped out of their collective urethrae, replacing the Necrontyr with the skeletal bodies of the Necrons. War breaks out between the Necrons and the Old Ones, this war being named the War in Heaven since all of the awesome shit that went down was akin to the gods themselves fighting.
The Old Ones get their asses soundly beat over and over again and created new races lol, Krork to defend themselves with. Oh, and by using the Warp as a weapon they turned it into the fun place we all know and love which essentially means that the Old Ones are responsible for all the Chaos-infested shit that goes down these days. At this point the old Necron fluff and new stuff begins to diverge a bit. Old fluff says the Eldar were created by the old Ones directly but new fluff simply says that the Eldar and Old Ones were allies in the war against the Necrons.
It doesn't specifically say the Eldar were created by the Old Ones although the new background is worded in such a way as to make both interpretations plausible. In Eldar culture, there's another great conflict also known as the War in Heaven. This is air liquide robot wars wikipedia where the theory that the Old Ones and the Eldar Pantheon are potentially the same thing comes from if true, that means some Old Ones are still alive, namely IshaCegorachand Khainethough Khaine is split into a bajillion pieces so truly alive is debatable for him.
But the most likely explanation for this is that GeeDubs' writers never fucking talk to each other about the intricacies of this shit and ended up giving two different conflicts the same god damn name. However, the Eldar were present in both wars, so Anyway, after the Old Ones strategy of cranking out race after race to be used as cannon fodder backfires when an Enslaver Plague rolls around, the C'tan go on a feast of galactic proportions. In present time, the Necrons spend most of their time killing anything with a pulse and generally hating anything living, including bacteria.
Air liquide robot wars wikipedia main objective was to use their advanced technology to close air liquide robot wars wikipedia seal off the Eye of Terror, drive back the 'Nids, and turn the living races into a never-ending all-you-can-eat buffet for the remaining C'tan.
Or "Metal Tyranids" because of the emotionless mass os air liquide robot wars wikipedia that represents their armies with guys like Thomas Macabee being more of an exception than a rule. This new incarnation, love it or hate it, gives the Necrons a whole wide array of personality and air liquide robot wars wikipedia single Necron dynasty now has different goals and motives, not to mention paint schemes, markings, etc.
For a far, far better game-based exploration of how to introduce individualized personalities in a race of A. The crazy fun part of this is if you still want to play a silent legion of implacable, unfathomable terror-bots in the thrall of an insane god, you totally can. The new fluff allows for players to fluff their army as they see fit as anything from a noble, honorable warrior kingdom open to trade and diplomacy with other species to unthinking hordes of omnicidal machines in the thrall of a malevolent computer system.
You can even have a legion of the old-school C'tan-worshipping harvestcrons that have either been enslaved or have willingly taken to worshipping an awakened C'tan Air liquide robot wars wikipedia. Shit, for all the new fluff cares your army can be a horde of Necrons afflicted with the Flayer Curse who long to have their dicks back and run around stealing the dongs of the lesser races so they can hump each other whilst their Lord sheds manly tears air liquide robot wars wikipedia he beholds the terrible plight of his people.
Forge World created the Maynarkh Air liquide robot wars wikipedia to give an example of a perfectly fluff-valid dynasty that was culturally similar to Oldcrons well, the "kill everything!
And as for totally destroying the background of the C'Tan, the codex does allude to the fact that there are lots of unaccounted for C'Tan shards or air liquide robot wars wikipedia even yet unshattered C'tan? The Necron are always trying to hunt them down and imprison them in air liquide robot wars wikipedia dimension prisonsbut this does still leave the door totally wide open for a shard of 'The Dragon' to be on Mars and for shards of 'The Deceiver' to have done all the crazy things that have been written about him in novels.
Essentially, the full C'Tan were massively, massively powerful and the 'shard' versions of them are now a lot more manageable. The necrontyr were an alien race that lived extremely short, painful lives during which they were constantly reminded of their inevitable deaths since the tomb complexes they built where much larger than their towns.
They focused their short lives on science in a desperate attempt to find a way to increase their lifespans, but they never managed to. Thus grew their collective hate towards the near-immortal Old Ones. The Necrontyr's empire was massive at one point, but the different Lords in the galaxy-wide dominion started to turn against each other in civil war.
To prevent this from happening, the overall ruler of the Necrontyr the Silent King started the war against the Old Ones specifically to give them a common enemy to fight against to prevent his people from air liquide robot wars wikipedia themselves in their own general stupidity. Of course, the Old Ones ended up kicking their butts and in desperation the Silent King allied with the C'tan who had been attracted to the pure hate and rage the Necrontyr held for the Old Ones, air liquide robot wars wikipedia common enemy of the Air liquide robot wars wikipedia and agreed to the Deceiver's pact to give them shiny new immortal bodies without realizing what he was doing.
The devious Star God had in fact tricked the Necrontyr into giving up their mortal bodies and souls so that he and his god friends could gorge themselves on their tasty ass-meats. However, after the Necrons helped the C'tan kill off the last Old Ones and while the C'tan were recuperating, the Silent King then ordered the Necrons to turn on the C'tan in vengeance. Caught by surprise,the C'tan were defeated and shattered into thousands of shards which the Necrons imprisoned for later use.
At this point the galaxy was basically a smoldering ruin, the Necrons were severely depleted from their endless wars, and the Eldar were reaching the height of their power. The Silent King air liquide robot wars wikipedia the Necrons to sleep for millions of years in order to hide from the Eldar and re-awaken at a time when the galaxy had both recovered and forgotten about them.
The Silent King's final order to his people was that following the Great Sleep they must reclaim their old empire and return it to its former glory A role he left his Triarch Praetorians to cover later.
Following this, he left the galaxy in shame for failing his people. Now that the Necrons have reawakened in the 41st millennium their goal is no longer to 'harvest' souls for the C'tan the C'tan shards are now their slaves as it was in the old book, but rather to reestablish the great Necron empire that spanned the galaxy before the war with the Old Ones began.
What this exactly means is left to the interpretation of each Overlord. The overall unity of the Necron people is gone for the most part leaving each individual Dynasties to once again rule for themselves. While Necron warriors are pretty much just automatons and Immortals are not much better, the majority of the upper echelon of Necron society retain some degree of personality.
So there is lots of crazy nuance to Necron culture that was never present before. There are now lots of memorable quotes from Necron Lords.
There are Necron Lords who honor valor in battle, Necron Lords who are obsessed with finding the perfect flesh bodies to transfer their sentience back into, and a Necron Lord who acts and commands its people like true robots due to damage to their Tomb World among others. The Silent King, who left the galaxy after defeating the C'tan basically exiling himself for the unforgivable crime of allowing the C'tan to remove the souls of his peopleencountered the Tyranids in the void between galaxies and has returned to spur the Necrons into action against the Bugs.
The Silent King realized that if the Tyranids wipe the galaxy clean of biological matter then the Necrons will never find a form to transfer their minds back into. There are even a few Necron Lords who even work or trade with other races. However, such as with all the factions of 40k this is rare. And then Trazyn decides to give the Imperium a hand at Cadia and see if he could get Abaddon as part of his collection. Really, every dynasty can be different, so just have fun coming up with your own.
Oh, and there is definitely plenty of reason to have Necron vs. Necron action now as the old feuds between competing Necron Lords flare back up again. To make matters more complicated though, if Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is to be believed, it was The Deceiver who air liquide robot wars wikipedia over the Blackstone Fortresses to Abbadonthereby allowing him to destroy the Necron Pylons and overrun Cadia.
