Rise of the Necrons aka Undead Doods

Secrets of the Necrons

Necron Lord

Necron Lords are the commanders of Necron forces, chosen due to being one of the few Necrons to retain sentience. They are formidable foes on the battlefield, being quite adept with both ranged and close combat weaponry. Due to their special position as “leaders” in the Necron forces, they are often equipped with special gear. This gear often increases the effectiveness of other Necrons around the Lord, such as augmenting their healing factor, or allowing them to teleport to crucial points in a battle; other gear carried can increase the Lord’s survivability or his prowess in battle. Necron Lords are also some of the few Necrons who keep pieces of memory remaining from their previous lives.

The Staff of Light is a weapon that is only carried by the Necron Lord. It has great melee potential, and is even capable of a limited burst of ranged attacks. While not terribly powerful, it offers a solid weapon for defense and gives the Necrons their first real melee weapon.

Living Metal is the basis of Necrontyr technology. It is extremely durable and can dynamically restructure itself to change shape or to adapt to an outside effect, as well as having the capability to mend itself when damaged. The physical shells that contain the C’tan are made from it, so called Necrodermis as are the Necron metal bodies (including star ships and vehicles) and some of their weapons. The C’tan Phase Sword and C’tan Phase Knife also utilize similar technology. Literally, the name means “corpse skin” , and dermis).
