I chose them because of WBB. That is really the only original reason.
So... if I gave some daemons a matte paint-job, would they be "Matte Daemons?"
Necron Tactica: Flying Circus
Hmmm... why did I choose necrons. Probably for several reasons, first I wanted to collect a completely different army than my old 'nids.
Secondly I LOVE power gaming and these guys are pretty much the 40k definition of it . Some armies like DA or eldar are based off of cunning and daring plans, space marines are a little too... human for me, that goes for all other humans, orks never been a big fan of big goofy green guys with goofy hordes, tyranids well I really like tyranids and always a big fan of close combat. It seems like all my favourite races are the ones who will bring doom to our galaxy (sure says something about myself)
I really like how a successful Necron force is through achieving 100% effectiveness, its very... satisfying.
I don't know...I woke up one day and there was massive gold man staring at me. He convinced me to play necrons
Lousy painter = Necron Army
Mysterious Member of the ANZAC Clan
Started out with Marines, hated them. Store owner directed me to necrons as they were "great for beginners" and "so cheesy you'll win once in a while no matter what." After picking them up I found that their story was great.
In the Castle of Pain on a Mountain of Skulls I sat on a Throne of Blood. What was will be, what is will be no more. Now is the season of Evil!
- Vigo the Carpathian
I chose Necrons for a few different reasons. 1) I wanted a Non-Human army, 2) The models looked good, 3) Easy to paint, 4)I liked the fluff.
They were my fisrt 40K armies, and as with all other army choices, i went with them as i liked the models.
Second army for me. They are easy to paint and I could get them on the table quickly.
When I was thinking of playing 40k for the first time I looked at all the armies. A friend described Necrons as "Undead Robots", which made no sense so I was instantly intrigued. The fluff coupled with WBB and a slight Egyptian/2001 theme sealed the deal.
I found they weren't quite as easy to paint/assemble as I thought, but they were easy. Fluff is interesting, but doesn't offer as many creative outlets as IG/SM/CSM do.
Basically, I like having an "alien" army to go with my marines, and they do look uber-cool and menacing. They are a lot of fun to play, too.
