... on a serious note, an interesting plot/fluff development maybe?...

Canoptek cloaks look like they'll make your Crypteks a bit more useful. Jump pack repairman? Just what you need!

Yeah, the new Cryptek looks very useful (fantastic looking mini too!) but be nice to have one be able to keep up with Destroyers, Tomb Blades, Praetorians etc.

Also liking the look of the Dynasty rules so far too! Sautekh for instance can fire weapons (even if they advance) as the profile becomes "Assault" whenever a unit advances and Heavy weapons suffer no penalties if moved normally.. while Mephrit gets a bonus to AP values when firing within half range... so Rapid Firing Warriors becomes -2 AP... just woah...

The dynasty traits that give you better mobility (advance and shoot or flat 6" advance) are probably the winners for you. That's one thing Crons seriously lack when played as big blobs

I think it depends on the tactics you're playing - I personally think being able to advance and shoot is huge and not suffer heavy -1 hit penalties either. Of course, still -1 after advancing, but better than not being able to shoot at all. Can also counter that with MYBD from the overlord for one unit at least.

As for the new Cryptek, I suspect his main role will be keeping pace with fast, hard hitting units like Praetorians and Destroyers - which is great, because currently it's a big issue for Necron players as you'll potentially have some very high point units that cannot benefit from the technomancer and chronomotron rules because the current Crypteks simply cannot keep up. We'll see, I still maintain it's a great looking model too.

That new start collecting box is great value. Better than any other Faction IMO

I agree - the AdMech stuff looks great too... tempted for the whole thing if I can stretch to it (but I doubt I'll be able too... )

I'd be after the AdMech stuff. No interest in your terminator rip offs! :lol: ;)
