What's New Today from the White Dwarf Team

A Lord awakened

Warriors of the Necron dynasties, you have a new Overlord. Bow before his eternal might and offer your soulless metal bodies in obeisance.

The Necron Overlord is the pinnacle of living metal technology. Where his soulless followers are hunched, gangly and austere, the Overlord stands tall and proud, his metal body meticulously maintained and significantly more ostentatious than those of the warriors that march to war around him. And so it should be, for an Overlord is a ruler, a king amongst his people and the commander of an entire tomb world. As such, he stands head and shoulders above even his Immortal bodyguards, a looming skeletal monster with aspirations of galactic domination.

The Necron Overlord wears a cloak of living metal that hangs from his carapace, which has been significantly upgraded and embellished to show his status.

The Overlord’s signature weapon is the warscythe, a weapon twice the height of a man, with a blade capable of slicing through flesh and armour with ease.
