Forge World Rumors: Are Tyracrons catching on?




This mystery bug showed up in a post on Heresy Online.  BoLS picked up the rumor and is running with it, and it makes me wonder if the Necrons are FINALLY getting some attention from FW. For that matter, it makes me wonder if FW are fans of the Tyracrons. Maybe I should've gone to Games Day in Baltimore, even if the army was only half-finished?

As it seems they've turned from their All-IG/Ork-All-the-Time agenda, maybe there's hope? It does have a nice mecha-bug look to it. On the other hand, people are now saying it's a hoax, which would be sad if it was true. 

Still, I like what's going on with that head/carapace thing. Those dumb-looking antennae have to go, but otherwise? Hmmmm.....

I'm somewhat skeptical about that guy being an upcoming Necron release, though it would be great to see them finally get a little attention. New Forge World goodies would be very nice... how long has it been since they released the Pylon? I had not yet heard the hoax theory but that would surprise me a lot less than if that mechabug really did turn out to be an upcoming FW piece. I have a feeling your Tyracons will remain a unique innovation for quite some time to come. Great army, by the way. I've really enjoyed seeing the all the work you put into your conversions.

Sadly the poster had made this up, it was a photoshop fake.

Even if the photo was a fake during the Forgeworld event the guy talking DID say that there was a new Necron model that would be in production soon. So even if THAT isn't the model there IS one coming.

@Papa JJ: thanks, I've really enjoyed making 'em.

@Casey: yeah, I figured as much.

@Frank: hopefully it won't be as underwhelming as the Pylon, but I ain't holding my breath.
