Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm tryign to get more of my co-workers involved with this warhammer 40k. SOme are pretty interested.
my question here is what (In your opinion) makes the Necrons such a great army.
look of the models?
what makes the Necrons cool?
Me personally, I chose to play Necrons because I thought they would be cooler to paint than Tau (though I've since broken down and started collecting a Tau army), and when I play I can make smartass comments to my opponent in a really bad Austrian accent.
Gyauayuayuayua! Ja! Ve vill crush da little girly men in deir little girl men awrmor! Ve vill see owur enemies driven befowur us, und hear da lahmentaytions of deir wemen. Und from owur home planet, de stayte uf Califowurnia, ve vill lawunch owur mighty offensive. Even if you kill us, ve'll be bach!! Gyauayauyauyauyau!

if i got them it would partly be because of their i'll be beack roll
I don't really enjoy playing my Necrons but i play with them every now and then, when i want to annoy my friends lol. GO WBB!

Fluff and look is what attracts me to any of the armies. I just like the whole implacable alien foe idea. I love the whole "horror" feel that the army has to it. Which is really reinforced by the story in the Necron codex on page 3, as well as the picture on page 23.
They are just cool.
The fluff is very interesinth. However GW should make more fluff.
Yes they are a great army. However you have a limited number of kind of units.
look of the models?
They look very good. Can you imagine it, 30 Arnold Sschwarzeneger moving trough the battefields, yesssss itÂ´s great
I PLAY THEM BECAUSEOF THE LOOK
When I was going to select an army I first took a look at the models. Wich look cool? I think it's important, because you are going to paint alot of them, and if you like to paint them, it's much more fun.
Second I looked for an easy, simple and still cool paint job. Atleast among the Core units. You are going to have alot of core units, and that means more painting.
I also gave some thought about how many selections you have to make when building an army (SM army book = 234343 hours of finding out what your librarian is going to be "wearing")
So I ended up with Necrons, and I'm very happy with it I'd say it's a very good starter army, but then again I havent collected any other army .... yet

- I'm not a Nerd! I'm a 13th level Paladin -
- Jesus saves ..... and takes half damage -
Simply for the look of disteress on the oponents face when he thinks he's killed a squad and half of them get back up again!
Terminator Based Custom Chapter
I was playin the necron beforeth codex came out it was only the white dwarfs rules I had. back when teh sdestroyer models wher ethe necrons on teh chairs hehehe but hte scarabs coul feakin explode! MAn I loved that i was kinda sad when I saw tehy changed them in the codex .
anyway when t3h codex came out I , admmittedly , jumped on teh necorns are broken band wagon (specialy wiht teh c'tan not having ot have per mission to play they jsut can) but form what I ve bee nread around here it is actually quite a bit harder to use the necrons. At leas t more than what I though. Cool it'd good to know these thigns maybe I'll try my luck at necrons again.
i would play necrons because the have pretty sweet weaponry their special characters rock they have those pyramids the kick ass and look like termonators kinda
