I just recently thought of this... where the fluff and the game mechanics make no sense... If anyone can chime in and help me understand this, that would be coo. =)
1. Tyranid Psychic Scream - It lowers *Necron's* leadership, even though Necrons have no psychic abilities or can be affected by psychic stuff.
2. Pariahs - Their anti-psyker abilities lower leadership to 7, but what if 2 Necron players were playing each other? It doesn't make sense that the lack of a soul and an anti-warp signature would affect Necrons... And how come Necron A's pariahs don't affect them but Necron B's pariahs do?
#1 They can definitly be affected by psychic stuff, neither the rules nor the fluff says they have no souls or mind or any of that. In fact they are the shadows of the souls of the Necrontyr. If they are completely immune to all things psychic the C'Tan would never have slept, they would have simply ignored Chaos and the Warp.
#2 They are fearless. So while they technically have a lower Ld it doesn't matter. They aren't scared.

"I have plenty of talent and vision; I just don't give a f..."
I see where you are comming from but think of it like a computer would, simply and algorithm based around the porobability of sucess. That is, a Necron would see it as a declinging probility of victory when hit with those powers. So even something like a phsycic scream would be though of lowing the chances for sucess in a battle, thus represented by the lowering of the leadership.

Sorry, I meant the *necrons* at a leadership 7 for being around souless *enemy* pariahs, when they are fine standing next to their own pariahs. That doesn't make sense...Originally Posted by dirksj
even if they are "Fearless" the calliduses assassin uses a neural shredder
its a stregth 7 ap 1 template weapon that uses the enemies ldship instead of toughness
"nor the fluff says they have no souls or mind or any of that"
yeah but the culexeus assassin is aparently a pariahs/human hybrid whos souless
