Why do Pariahs get all the (seemingly) best weaponry? Not even a Necron Lord get a warscythe with a gauss blaster built in!! So what's the deal?

so theyre not that good lol

Yes, well my feeling on it is that a necron lord should be upgrading the close combat component of the staff of light to a warscythe, leaving the shooting element.

@ the OP... because they are not true necrons and connot be rebuilt after a battle... they dont have the get back up rule

Also, since the weapons wielded by pariahs and Lords [with Warscythes] *look* pretty much identical - the Lord models' weapons have linear accelerator chambers and beam focusing arrays - maybe they do have built in Gauss weaponry, but there just arn't any rules to represent it.

The Pariahs are the next generation of Necrons, kinda like the iPhone.

You know what? The whole "next generation" thing makes MORE sense then giving veterans the best stuff. Seniority is fine, but when your new troops are just plain better than your old ones, they should get the better stuff.

Cuz the Deciever created them last week. He is still working out the kinks, give him a few mins...


Also makes me wonder that considering the deciever created the pariah gene (Not sure if he created or discovered/manipulated the gene), then should the nightbringer not have pariahs in his armies? this makes sense to me.

When i was asleep and my brother got to go to the toy shop, i didnt new new toys aswell. i did get more sleepz, which was awesome, but not my point.

I thought all the Pariah stuff was the Dragon - him being at least partly the techno guy (super lightning guns in his armies, it was in the "Eldar myths" discussion between an Inquisitor and a Magos on the old website...)

Necrons as a unified army/race is misleading.

The C'tan pretty much fought against each other only unifing to fight the old ones, and im pretty sure the deciever (if he did do the pariah gene stuff whic im certain he did) would not be sharing it with the nightbringer, considering last time they met he tried to kill him/eat him. Also considering the NB has been asleep for alot longer im certain he would be unaware of pariahs, unless his agents (aka Necron Lords) were able to find out bits of info for him.

I cant remember where i read it but im certain it was the deciever who did this pariah stuff before he went into his tomb. im certain...

Pariahs being the next step in necron evolution is a joke.

If the Nightbringer fought the Deciever on the battlefield, this will happen...

The Nightbringer's Necron Warriors fight against the Deciever's Pariahs. Over the course of the battle the pendulum swings in favor of both Gods. But in the end, the Necron Warriors are basically immortal, never dying, and essentially able to last forever. The Pariahs can suffer mortal wounds, and die.

So the Nightbringer looks at the Deciever with his entire army fully repaired.

"Noob. Our Necron warriors have lived for millions of years, been thourgh thousands of battles, and cannot die."

The Nightbringer pants the Deciever and throws a pie in his face.

At which point Calgar appears through a Warp portal and puts his Power Fists of Uberness through Nightbringers head, causing the Necrodermus to explode consiquently destroying Deciever's Necrodermus as well

lol is that how GW would do it

I suspect that is because of the dude holding the weapon than any question about the weapon itself.

It is certainly one of the coolest weapons in the game and one I wouldn't mind giving to my Chaos Lords.

The Nightbringer's Necron Warriors fight against the Deciever's Pariahs.
Assuming the Deciever would ever get caught by Nightbringer.
The Deceiver has Warriors too, and he certainly wouldn't bring Pariahs into a fight against fellow Necrons.

Also, the decievers armies are much much bigger then the nightbringers. after all, when the sign up day for 'Become a necron' was on, most people went to his booth.

infact, that pissed off the other C'tan so much he had to give some of his forces away so they wouldnt gang up on him.

and Pariah's are a tool to fight psychics/the warp, not other c'tan. as far as im aware, the only way to kill a ctan is to eat it or shoot it with a blackstone fortress.

If the Deceiver created/altered the pariah gene for his own ends it's possible that the Nightbringer has some of these troops as well. It could be all part of a grand scheme. Give the grim reaper some of your troops so that he can help eradicate psykers and close off the warp. Then when the moment is right all those troops the Nightbringer has grown accustomed to rebel giving the Deceiver a chance to strike. It not too much of a stretch to believe that the Deceiver has agents in the other necron forces is it?

I am glad you totally missed the point of my post. What else is new around here? lol!

Pariahs aren't the next step in evolution. They are horrid in fluff and table top. I would take with me an army of never dying, million year old immortal beings than something just barely survivable than a home grown human space marine.

Of course people sucessfuly field pariahs. problem is savvy players ignore them or just send in there specialist assault unit to deal with them. here is an example i can think of.

i played 2 games with a unit of 5. player 1: eldar. my pariahs sucessfully killed a falcon, a waveserpent with 10 DA's in it and a 20 man storm guardian squad.

Game 2: eldar. by turn 2 a waveserpent had dropped off its banshees which then went to town on my pariahs. owned.

savvy ey.

So pariahs are a one trick pony then?

Reflex
12-06-2009, 05:39
one trick pony, glass hammer, piece's of s***, worthless... etc etc

Consider it this way, if the unit is dodgy at a higher level, then its pretty pointless all together except in fun or fluffy games.

Well I never used Pariahs as a CC unit. I took a min squad had them follow a unit of Flayed Ones and the Deceiver about the place. They were there solely to reduce Ld.

I see the pariahs as the next step in the c'tan's war on psykers and the warp. They've been purpose-built to negate and get through warp powers and psychic abilities - in essence they are psyker assassins (since psykers are the c'tan's biggest threat). It stands to reason then that these elite psyker-killers would also be outfitted with weapons capable of cutting through the other more mundane defences a psyker might have - force fields, strong armour etc. This ensures the threat is removed as quickly as possible.
