So onto my last New Necron Codex Review post, and after fourteen reviews, what better way to end with, than talking about Phase Out!
So as it stands at the moment, if you lose 75% of qualifying 'Necron' models, your whole army phases out and disappears. Great for gybing your opponent, as your Necron army never really dies, but not so great in gaming terms, especially with the many limitations of the current Codex that we have previously discussed.
Basically, there are three options for Phase Out in the new Codex...
1/ Ditch Phase Out altogether
2/ Keep Phase Out as it is
3/ New Phase Out criteria
Although ditching phase out seems like the obvious choice, if you can imagine a new improved well done 5th/6th edition Codex, would phase out be that bad? I don't know about keeping it as it is, but I am happy to have it if it gets a bit of a tweak somehow. But what tweaks to give it? Reducing the percentage of loss to 80%/85%? More units counting towards Phase Out? or a different penalty for when you do phase out rather than your whole army disappearing?
So what do you think will happen to Phase Out in the new Necron Codex?
