Necron Night Shroud

Necron Night Shroud

Wow, that is a deluxe Scythe if I ever saw one! The Realm of Battle board is absolutely too cool, as well. I love that you can park a monolith on that thing, too!



Both of these look pretty awesome. The Night Shroud has an Anti-Matter bomb, which sounds cool, and the Tomb Citadel speaks for itself. I would assume that these will be outlined in the upcoming IA book which is said to feature Minotaurs, Death Korp and Necrons, IIRC. Can’t wait!

Here is the official FW info on the Tomb Citadel:

The stasis-crypts of the Necrons are protected by great defensive structures; near-impregnable fortifications designed to stand against the ravages of eternity, hostile action and deadly environments. Tomb Citadels often stand on the outermost borders of a wider complex. They act as watchtowers and outposts that are often the merest tip of the iceberg; the fathomless depths of silent galleries and stasis-chambers that make up the nameless cities of the Necrons extending far below them.

A Tomb Citadel is far more than an inert relic of strange aeons past, however. Each is a near-living war machine in its own right, and Imperial combat records record these brutish structures rising from the very earth, or phasing strangely into existence in the midst of a Necron assault. If not quickly destroyed, these dread ziggurats will form a beachhead from which the undying legions pour forth to destroy their foes

The Realm of Battle Necron Tomb Citadel, designed by Blake Spence, is a 2′ x 2′ (609mm x 609mm) tile which can fit onto a Citadel Realm of Battle board.

This model is available to pre-order now and will be despatched commencing Friday April 5th.

And the Night Shroud:

The Night Shroud is a dedicated bomber, larger than the more numerous Night Scythe and Doom Scythe craft alongside which it operates, whose origins date back countless aeons to the lost battles of the War in Heaven.

The Night Shroud was built to carry a relic of that ancient and apocalyptic conflict – so-called Death Spheres – containment vessels imprisoning the merest fragment of anti-matter. This potent warhead is kept out of phase with the material universe until the sphere detonates, unleashing an energy blast capable of annihilating anything it touches.

The Night Shroud is a complete resin and plastic kit. Model designed by Daren Parrwood.

This model is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday April 5th.

    Instead of just adding parts to the normal scythe kit I wish they would’ve came up with something a little more original BUT as far as the model itself goes I like the blade additions as well as the extended tail. I gotta say tho…that realm of battle board is sick…i’d spend some duckets on that for sure

    Wow, that realm of battle tile is great, makes me really hanker for a GW wave of army specific terrain.

      Yeah, we keep hearing that it is going to happen but we’ve yet to see anything, really.

    Dare I say Croissan’which? Perhaps… Chocolate Croissant? I like it, but the last thing Necrons need is a bomber. FW has a tendancy to take a codex that is heavy on a unit type, and just add more lol (ie IG heavies x a billion).

      Yeah, no kidding! But oh well, variety is the spice of life and you’ll never hear me complain about having too many toys!

      I like bombers but it would be cool to have a bomber that had more than 1 bomb…

    Don’t know if the experimental rules will give it to the bomber – but the underside shows 5 x antimatter spheres.
