Embark on a journey through time with the Necrons, an ancient race of alien androids who once reigned supreme over the galaxy. Having emerged from millions of years of self-imposed stasis, they now awaken from their tomb worlds, ready to assert their dominance once again. Encased in bodies of self-repairing living metal and wielding weaponry that channels the raw, destructive power of the cosmos, the Necrons represent an indomitable and harrowing force, devoid of fear, mercy, and soul.
The Necron legions, a formidable expanse of mechanized might, are complemented by arcane war machines, agile constructs, and the fragmented essences of cosmic deities. Commanded by undying nobles, whose wills are as unbreakable as their metallic forms, they march forth united by an unshakeable belief in their divine right to rule the stars. Though eons of dormancy have left some Necrons scarred, their newfound insanity only serves to heighten their menace.
