There's a kind of EA-tier irony in Games Workshop deciding to outright replace a reasonably popular 40k faction with one of only two Fantasy factions unpopular enough to get totally amputated out of Age of Sigmar.
All that after leaving them to gather dust for a full decade. Jesus, in retrospect, Necrons got fucking brutalized. Remember when Wood Elves got their big ten-years-on revamp? The whole model line replaced, sexy new rules, updated aesthetic and fluff that stayed true to the original core? Necrons got Ward, gutted setting material, and some wizzy skeleton boyz on hover-dodgems.
