Such was their mastery of technology and drive to conquer that not even the Old Ones of legend could stand against them. Yet such unremitting war left the galaxy ravaged. Knowing that the recovery would take millions of years, the Necrons took to their stasis-crypts, there to sleep away the aeons until the galaxy was fit to reclaim.

Codex: Necrons (5th Edition) Reviews
Warhammer 40,000 is dead to Games Workshop. I wish the Black Library and Fantasy Flight Games the best of luck with the franchise, because it seems the company who created it do not simply "not care" about it any more, they're out to kill it off.Yes, the fluff looks like it's bad. The Old Ones were beaten by the C'Tan without the Chaos gods being remotely involved, the Necrons easily killed them despite being weaker than the C'Tan, and the Necron Empire lasted much longer than the Eldar one. The Eldar also only had one because the Necrons allowed them to. Oh yes, and apparently some Necrons are now benevolent, lawful characters who are "good". There are so many plot holes here and contradictions to other Codexes that it might well have destroyed the entire basis for the game. Heaven help us if Ward feels the need to try and top Draigo's fluff.
Following the excellent 4th Edition, which added the C'tan star-gods to the Necrons and went some quite considerable way to giving this "unknown horror" and/or "space undead"* a unique character of their own in keeping with the Warhammer 40,000 techno-barbarian gothic universe, this 5th edition Codex went full out on new lore and came up with the brilliant idea of making the character of necron armies - who are generally faceless terminator robots - reliant on the character of their leaders, allowing for a great range of possiblities for the imaginative gamer. Good concepts proliferate in this codex, though sometimes feel a bit rushed or reliant on exciting individual words rather than a strong idea, making it quite an up-and-down read. *Tomb Kings, to use the former Warhammer Fantasy army name
Read this to remind me of the good old days of 40K and to compare it to the new codex. And then I never read the new one... LOL!
