I should have the new Codex: Necrons in hand at some point later today. I can't wait. The plan is to read, read, read over the weekend and come up with a solid 1500 point list using what I have and what I picked up from the auction last week.
Then... a schedule.
It worked great for me when I built my Farsight Bomb Tau army. I planned a list and painted 1500 points worth of models in 2 months. It was tough, but it happened. The Necrons scheme I'm using is a little tougher, and might take longer, but should still be doable if I stick to a schedule.
Until then, I found this online somewhere. Awesome piece of fanart. This would make a great forum avatar.
