Starting Necrons, haven't played since 6th ed.
« on: May 11, 2021, 11:22:39 AM »
Hiya!

Starting a Necron force for/with my 11 year-old, and figured it might be a good idea to ask some simple dos and don'ts.

I don't know anything about the Necrons, and haven't played since the 6th ed, I think. Started at the 2nd, long, so very long time ago... :-)

Basically we've been playing the old 6th edition until now, but now as we're getting to Necrons, we don't have codex yet and it occurred to me that some models might be too new for the older editions, I've never had any opponents who played Necrons before either.

So any tips and info would be very welcome! :-)

You were asking about sixth edition at the time when the community was playing ninth edition.  Consequently, it was always going to be optimistic to expect a response.  Even when there were more active members, responses to out-of-date edition questions were usually difficult to come by.

The Necron board was always one of the quieter boards that relied on a small number of veteran players to keep it going.  These players have either stopped playing, left, or both.  Unfortunately, nobody has come through to replace them, hence replies are likely to be few and far between.

I'll throw in a reply... necrons are in a really good spot for 10th. I've been enjoying them a lot.
