The Tomb Blades are the Fast Attack element of the Necron race - something that your opponent's probably won't expect at all. Most players see the Necrons as a slow and implacable race, so to have fast-moving jetbikes zipping around their army will be very unexpected indeed. Because of the way the kits are designed, you can build your Tomb Blades in several different ways - as short and menacing, or sleek and blade-like. It doesn't make a different to their rules, but it does give you the option to customise them as you like. As we all know, variety is the spice of life.
There are plenty more new kits available, including models for the named characters Nemesor Zahndrekh, Vargard Obyron and Illuminator Szeras (complete with severed Eldar head) and resin upgrade packs for the Destroyer Lord and the Heavy Destroyer. To advance order your Necrons, simply click on the links above. If you order them by Sunday April 29th and choose to have them sent to your local Games Workshop Hobby Centre, then they will be there waiting for you on the release day (Saturday 5th). Choose to have them sent to another address (within this dimension only - not even Royal Mail are that good) and you will receive them the week commencing the 7th May.
