What looks to be images of a new Necron codex have been spotted along with all the latest rules rumors of Stratagems on down to Warlord Traits.
Now, these are still rumors, right down to the images, so don’t forget to add plenty of salt.

One user on Reddit had a lot to say about the new codes:
Sautekh, Nihilakh, Nephrekh and Mephrit are the big winners here.
Sautekh gives Necrons a great boost in mobility as well as makes Doom Scythes and Transdimensional beamer Wraiths more viable. Also makes the Tesseract Ark better, like it even needed it.
Nihilakh gives Necrons a source of rerolls other than the Stalker, which can be extremely useful.
Mephrit is slightly dissapointing since our range is already so short that to restrict the bonus to under half is limiting, but S5 AP-3 guns on Immortals or AP on tesla is really really good.
Nephrekh totally changes how you’d play the army. Load up on assault weapons and tear your way across the board at a ludicrous speed for the normally lumbering Necrons.
Overall it looks like if these rumors pan out Tomb Blades may just be the hotness again, and those stratagems are almost too good to be true, in most cases! Are you looking forward to these changes coming our way for the Necrons, if true?
Did someone do a great job with the latest images, or is it just an elaborate ruse?
