    IG or SM fighting for Necrons. Say what?

    Reading through the Necron codex on the campaign play pages i stumbled upon this:
    In far away worlds from the central of the imperium, they are vulnerable to come upon the sway of the c'tan. Worlds inhabited by imperial guard or space marines will be forced to fight for their new leader the c'tan.
    (Not exact words i decided to paraphrase but you can get the main point which is the c'tan making SM and or IG fight for his cause and maybe alongside his necrons)

    That intrigued me so much that i just had to post it on here. Has any SM or IG player ever modeled their army to look like necrons as per waring in favor of the c'tan?

    If so though i doubt anyone has post picture i would love to see them

    Sorry, but you've misread the codex. It says that the c'tan love being worshipped as gods, and "...the vast power they wield is a convincing argument to primitive cultures." So not IG or SM, but tribal peoples are swayed. The same paragraph says that "C'tan domination of a world may be countered by Imperial agents or perhaps Space Marines who periodically recruit or train there."

    So it's not regiments or Chapters being influenced, by primitive people. It is the IG and SM who fight against the Necrons/C'tan, not for them. It specifically mentions that the locals can be deluded into fighting for their new gods.

    That being said the Deceiver has been able to deceive people into doing many things. It can change shape, form, speach... He has been known to 're[lace' planetary govenors, such as Takis.

    So the deceiver may very well be able to use the soldiers of the Imperium to fight his battles.

    An interesting paint/army theme to explore

    Although it could be conceivable that a Guard regiment from a primitive world (such as the Harkoni Warhawks) could be made to believe in the C'tan. Yes, their equipment is above the level of technology for the world, but once the Imperium had provided such things it's possible that they would leave them alone, allowing for subversion of local beliefs by the C'tan (such as appearing as whatever totem manifestation of the Emperor the inhabitants believed in). But no, it wouldn't be possible for most Imperial worlds, and definitely not for marines.

    You could always pursue the Void Dragon/Adeptus Mechanicus route; therein saying "Well, they were AdMech-aligned forces, then the Void Dragon, for shits and giggles..."

    As far as Necron-controlled humans go, you either have to pursue the above (The Void Dragon's ability to control technology remotely) or the Deceiver path. The Night Bringer isn't concerned with allying with humans in any way - he is at his happiest slaying anything smaller than a Battlecruiser that gets in his way. The Outsider... don't go there. That dude is nuts insane. Well and truly insane and possibly a Null. While asleep, exclusively using his mind he crushed and scattered a Tyranid Hive Fleet.
    Terminator armor going critical would be like Three Mile Island only very, VERY angry, and carrying a hammer.
    LO rules in a nutshell: Don't post unit costs, be polite, rep posts containing of win.

    Have you ever thought of the Iron Hands cahpter, (page 2 of the necron codex) Paullian Blantar Iron-Father of Kaargul Clan, Iron Hands Chapter- "The Machine is strong. We must purge the weak, hated flesh and replace it with blessed purity of metal. Only through permanence can we truly triumph, only through the Machine cna we find victory. Punish the flesh. Iron in mind and body. Hail the Machine!"

    Not to mention Iron hands marines are mainly machine. Not to mention their homeworld was rittled with necrons and the fact that their primarch Ferrus Manus rest his soul have a hand of Living Metal and have an abnormal knowledge of machinary. There are rumors of Iron Hands being completely mechanical, and instead of having Chaplins the have Iron Fathers, and the Iron Hands have some ties to Adeptus Mechanicus as well to.
    Their Nunmber is Legion and Their Name is Death.

    Void Dragon takes over tanks.
    Deciever takes over men.
    Its possible.

    It could look really cool as well. I'd like to see an army ike that. Guardsmen with necron implants. Leman Russ with living metal (titans in apocalypse). Add some Pariahs to mix in with the human-necron and the deciever/void dragon and you have a devestating and brilliant looking army.

    There's an entry on this kind of thing in the Witch Hunters codex. It basically gives you a reason for why the Witch Hunters would find the Necron (Sanctuary 101 payback notwithstanding). I believe one of the reasons was that Necrons were influencing humans or something. Ever read Xenology? Not too hard to imagine now, eh?
    Okay, so now I have no signature. Great.
