What's New Today from the White Dwarf Team

The Codex has been upgraded

Yesterday you got a new Overlord to lead your Necrons into battle. Today, it’s a brand new Codex packed with new background, new rules and more pictures of Citadel miniatures than you can shake a Rod of Covenant at.

Codex: Necrons is the definitive guide to the oldest and deadliest race in the galaxy. Though once mortal creatures like you and I, they traded in their weak, withered bodies for a stab at immortality. Sadly it came at a price: their souls. This tragic tale is explained in full in the new Codex, along with an in-depth look at the Necron dynasties, their armed forces and their most spectacular engagements since their re-awakening.

Codex: Necrons also introduces a new way to build your army, in this case, the Necron Decurion Detachment. Not only does it tap into the background of the Necron race, it also makes creating an army list easier than ever before. We rake a closer look at the Decurions in White Dwarf 52, out now.

Here’s a sneak-peek at what else to expect in the new book.

The territories of the Necron dynasties are marked out on the galactic map for the first time, and in colour, no less. The territories of the Necron dynasties are marked out on the galactic map for the first time, and in colour, no less.
