The words in this article are by Adam Smith, Alec Meer, Nate Crowley, Matt Cox, Sin Vega, Graham Smith, Matthew Castle and Katharine Castle.

Disclaimer: Nate writes for Black Library, the publishing company owned by Games Workshop, which is why he’s such a huge nerd about Necrons. But he’ll still readily admit when GW licensed games – for example the original Battlefleet Gothic Armada – are rubbish.)
