This is the Necron RR thread, which I'll try to update as regularly as possible. If you know of a rumour which isn't included here, but think it should be: please send me a PM. Don't forget to link the source, so that I can include it as well.
The current rumour discussion thread is to be found here. Please keep in mind to discuss the rumours, and keep wishlisting out of it. Thanks in advance.
Now for the rumours:

It is currently assumed that the plastic kits already available won't change, apart from possible recuts in the sprues. See here for details.
Blood of Kittens also did a compilation of rumours, to be found here.
Yakface on Dakka² commented about what seems to be an ability of one of the new special characters:

Here's a bit more detail on the Lychguard & Praetorians:
Lychguard: S5 T5 A2 3+ save. Warscythes (2h +2 str power weapon) or A +4 inv. shield and power weapon. Shield can bounce saved shots back at any enemy if they are within 6". 40pts each.
Praetorians: S5 T5 jump infantry. 3+ save. Have a 6" shot S5 AP2 Assault 1 power weapon staff or 2 rending swords and a 3+ inv. 40 pts each.
And a recap from my rumor thread with a little taste about what the sniper unit is like:
Another new Elites choice is a sniper style unit that can Deep Strike into play normally or it can choose to immediately Deep Strike immediately after the opponent brings an enemy unit on from Reserves, and they have some nasty additional damage ability against one nominated unit...obviously we need more info to know how useful this will really be, but the concept of countering an opponent's Reserve deployment immediately sounds interesting at least
Finally, Beasts of War made some pictures of new Necron models available. See the attachments.
