Update: looks like Warhammer World won't be happening quite yet, Ian called up for some tables and the events team had the gall to be running an event... How dare they do their jobs 😝
Anyways playtesting will still be completed just not in the hallowed halls of nerd heaven, I'll update again once we know where we're headed.
The Antechamber whistled with the cold brush of air on metal and stone. The occasional dripping of what could possibly be water punctuated the silence. This was a dead place.
No. This was a place of the dead.
Soft, sickening lights shimmered from the recessed pillars on the floors, glyphs of magma-level complexity and mathematical impossibilities shone to life upon their surfaces. One by one, the procession of pillars lit up with the light of dying suns in the wake of a giant. The heavy clanking of footfalls echoed dolorously, as they lead up to a fresco at the back of the room.
Silvered motifs of the Dead Necrontyr race adornrd the fresco facing. Depictions of the triumphs of the Dynasty in its heyday of power. Framed in the centre, what could be considered to be a humanoid female, sat resplendent upon a throne of cold metal, the bodies of her enemies under her boot heels. Her face belied her inhuman nature, eyes dispassionate and dead, compared to the life in the imagery of the rest of the fresco.
As the giant approached the wall, the soft hissing of mechanical limbs came from the deep corners hidden in shadow as the wall began to run like mercury. Slowly but surely the females form pulsed outwards as the rest of the metal flowed with her, until a goddess of death was all that remained. Sitting upon her throne.
Like the chiming of soft bells, she said, "It is time, summon Toholk to awaken the gates".
None would have thought the chiming of soft bells would herald the death of a world.

Good Evening (or Good Morning/Day depending on where you are in the world)!
So, the Legions of The Maynarkh Dynasty (along with me), are headed to Warhammer World in Nottingham on the 28th of this month! The plan for the visit for myself, is to get a game or two in with my current list for Dave Westons Birthday Bash 2.0 Tournament (it looks like I'll be good to bring this to the event! 😁 WOOOO!!!!!!). I'll be up with my friend Ian from Krakaddict.blogspot.co.uk, so if you're there say Hi! Other items include having a refreshing tipple in Bugman's Bar, torturing myself in the forgeworld store, and the standard trip around the Hobby Museum.
I've been once before, just after the release of the Warlord Titan, so I am looking forward to seeing what else in new in the exhibits whilst in there. That should give me roughly 3 and a half weeks to post about the visit and how the list played (not that I will be changing it!).
There is a good amount of fixing up to complete for the army in relation to being table top ready but a week off prior to the tourney should be more than enough time (fingers crossed).
I'll update on the progress of each unit as the weeks progress, and I hope you pop by to see!
Until next time
