I'm going to try running a 40k campaign over the holidays, and I could do with 40kO's expert opinion. Basically, a strongly anti-psychic rogue planet has been colonised by Imperials, who are now terraforming it. High proportion of psychic blanks in the population and in the regiment stationed there. Commanded by an Inquisitor who has some connection with the planet itself.
The tomb world is awakened, along with the Outsider, one of the C'tan. The Regiment are controlled by the corrupted Inquisitor and make like nothing is wrong. the entire planet is a living, breathing, seething thing and is being steered into the Eye of Terror to try and shut it down. Grey Knights get called along with other Guard, Necrons start springing up from the planet and Chaos invade, unwillling to have the Eye closed. Eldar, who had attacked the colony earlier, also play a role.
tl,dr: THE METAL LIVESThe Outsider: Points: 360? 350?
The Boy Snide's Outrageously Shiny Leather and PVC clad Soul Train-Void. The Stranger Inside.
Like a massively pumped up Culexus, but currently inside the Dyson sphere. It's the source of the Pariah Gene.
WS BS S T W I A LD SV
5 4 6 8 5 4 4 10 4+
Armed with a pumped up Aminus Speculum (str5 ap1, uses small template. Assault 2. Gains extra shot for every psyker within 12 inches)and the Sea Inside.Souless:
All models within 18 inches count as LD 7.
All psykers within 12 inches must take a leadership test or fall back. If are with a unit, that unit must also fall back.Monsterous Creature:
Rolls 2d6 for armour penetration, and ignores armour saves. Because it's a C'tan, it's attacks also ignore invulnerable saves.Immune to Natural Law:
Ignore terrain, if attacking models in or behind cover, count as having frag grenades.Necrodermis:
4+ invulnerable save. If the C'tan is killed, it inflicts a S6 hit on every model within d6 inches, no armour saves possible.
Any opponent reduced to 0 wounds in close combat will not regenerate them or recover them due to bionics or medipaks or any other fancy wargear.Manifestation:
Anyone wishing to assault the C'tan must make a LD test. If the test if failed, they cannot assault this turn.Fearless:
Autopass all morale checks, cannot be pinned.The Sea Inside:
Used in shooting phase. Ordinance template over Outsider, str 5 ap1. Partial coverage hits on a 4+. If any enemy models take a wound, must pass a leadership test or be dragged into the Sea of Dirac, a pocket dimension of absolute negative energy, and is insta-killed.
A bit like episode 16 of Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Like a grossly distended famine victim, rake thin, half-squatting and screaming, stomach swollen with child. Echoing within it are the birth pangs of the entire universe.
I'm not to sure about The Sea Inside...
Partial coverage hits on a 4+. If any enemy models take a wound, must pass a leadership test or be dragged into the Sea of Dirac.
Or should it be like a flamer hit, and an instant kill if you fail a LD test, no saves of any kind possible?
I need the advice of the Necron boards, as you've got more experience with C'tan that I do. The Outsider would be great with a fear list. I hope this isn't rage-enducing...
