Hi Guys,

Just picked up this model the other day and thought i'd share my thoughts:

First off its incredibly tiny and therefore far overpriced for what it is. Really it could fit into a clamppack instead of the box its in and should be 15 euros, or 20 like some of the bigger necron characters. Compared with what else costs 31 euros, I am very very disappointed, I blame the deceptive artwork and size in the white dwarf.

Secondly, its ooooh so flimsy, especially the quills. I am waiting for them to snap. I would suggest harrassing an empire player for spare plastic feathers and using those.

On a side note though, one of the blue scribes is standing on a book that looks exactly like the warhammer fantasy rulebook, a nice easter egg from GW.

You mean, it's got pages and two covers?

It's certainly thick enough.
