    well, I hope I am right in thinkingt that there are currently two c'tan-deciever and nightbringer

    Also, isn't there 2 others that are undiscovered or still asleep?

    Well, the problem starts here. Apparently, nightbringer and deciever are the WEAKER of the c'tan, so the other two will be solid. Now if you look at there stats, these other two will have stats off the scale.

    Another problem I see is that what will be released that will counter the power of the necron army.....the primarchs.....maybee robouite or russ, maybee even the lion.

    What about other armies, what do they have to deal with this threat. Only time will tell but it still troubles me.

    Nightbringer is the strongest, that has been shown several times. They wont get stronger than him.

    Well, I thought that there were 5 C&#39;tan that went into hibernation. It was written that the C&#39;tan would only rise once they were disturbed by a sentient species of the right statistics. So, the other three are probably still out there, maybe discovered by bugs, but unwoken. As of yet...

    or because the C&#39;tan are special characters, gw could up the point cost for these new C&#39;tan proportionally. I wouldn&#39;t have any trouble facinga C&#39;tan if it cost enough points for me to field 30 or more battle sisters for the same cost.

    The Outsider and Dragon are not as powerful as the Nightbringer in the realm of sheer power but the Dragon has the fact it&#39;s sleeping on Mars and was worshipped as the Machine God at one time, there is a chance that a good portion of the Adeptus Mechanicus could break away when the Dragon reawakens, this may be rather soon as they mention some stuff about it in the Necron Codex.

    The Outsider is another story entirely, he apparently is sleeping in a Dyson Sphere that is 1.3 Astrnomical Units across, this means it has a diameter larger than the distance from Terra to the Sun. Even more puzzling is the fact that the Tyranid Hive Fleet is entirely avoiding whole systems around this Dyson Sphere. The outsider may have some connection to the Tyranids.

    One things that could be bad for everyone, the Necron Codex states that when the Nightbringer awoke he was very weak and nearly dead, he hasn&#39;t been awake very long and would logically be rather frail still, wouldn&#39;t that mean he will be getting stronger as time goes on and a revised version of him may be more powerful yet?

    Yeah it does, but the problem is , even if nightbringer is the strongest and may get stonger.....who is there to challenge em. (Iknow 30 battle sisters could do it lol) but I mean in the whole background of the game, not just on the battle field.

    well although the Ctan arent part of the warp they are vulnerable to its powers, so Ahriman could probably take down a Ctan

    There is going to be a lot of convuluted plot lines (just the way i like though) that involve finding and bringing together the remaining Talismans of Vaul. Prehaps a chance for Eldrad Ulthran to make a cameo for beyond the grave?

    every teem should NOT have a 300 point character at their disposial. 250 is pushing it. 360 is way past.

    I think that the c&#39;tan should have an in game vulrebileny to psichic powers, for obvious reasons.

    I believe the Talismans of Vaul were pretty well put out of the Eldars reach by the Deceiver, he certainly doesn&#39;t want to be blown apart so he hid them well and made sure they could never be retrieved in some cases.

    If the Nightrbinger does grow in strength he&#39;ll become one of those things you&#39;ll have to have an absolutely massive army to even make it feasible to field him.
    I do think that the Necron are going to take the prize for having the most beefed up independent character though. Each C&#39;tan squeezes just a tiny fraction of his powers into the Necrodermis so they&#39;re capable of interacting with us little guys, I bet if the Nightbringer really wanted he could just float over to a planet and start sucking the life out of people planetwide.
    In a way I&#39;m both hopeful and scared to see if the Nightbringer grows in strength, if he does get even higher stats he could be insane but it would be interesting to see.
