Well this is some very exciting news!
I have been a huge lover of the Necrons pretty much since I got into Warhammer 40k, and when FFG announced the Necrons would be in Conquest, I was very excited. That it has taken over a year to get them is a little rough, but finally!
I find the enslavement mechanic a little interesting. In Warhammer 40k, Necrons can only ally with Chaos Space Marines as allies of convenience, and everyone else is come the apocalypse, yet here we see them able to ally with any other faction (even Tyranids, it seems?) as the Necrons have enslaved them – presumably with some kind of scarab? It’s interesting, anyway, and could lead to some funky decks as we see rank-and-file space marines alongside Necrons.
Out in the first quarter next year, I can’t wait to get my hands on this bad boy and rediscover the game!
