With the release of Warhammer 40,000 9th edition right around the corner, Games Workshop has been teasing some of the new figures and units we’ll be seeing on the tabletop. Today, there’s two new reveals for Necrons, The Silent King and the Void Dragon.
The Silent King returns!
This is a monster of a figure with a diorama-like focus, it’ll be at the center of a lot of Necron army displays. Szarekh, the last of the Silent Kings will be out soon.
Szarekh was the last in the line of Silent Kings to lead the ruling Triarch of the ancient Necrontyr Empire It was under his reign the Necrontyr met the C’Tan and underwent their transformation. It was Szarekh who recognized what the C’Tan did, betraying them and shattering them into C’Tan Shards and imprisoning them in the Tesseract Labyrinths. He then ordered all of the Necron dynasties into the Great Sleep so they could recover and then rise to rebuild what they had lost. His final decision was to go into self-imposed exile only having returned after discovering the approaching Tyranid Hive Fleets and recognizing their threat.
The Void Dragon Nears
The Void Dragon Rises?
A C’Tan shard rises from the most formidable of the powerful Void Dragon! We don’t now what this new unit can do but it’s an impressive looking figure.
The Void Dragon is believed by some to be the Machine God worshipped by the Cult of the Machine of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Could it be the “Dragon of Mars”? We’ll find out more soon and it’s a release that could rock the future of the Warhammer 40K universe.
There’s a lot of new toys and changes coming to Warhammer 40,000 and one looks like it’ll be taking a note from Warhammer: Age of Sigmar and having a bit of a focus on functional scenery.
Two new kits have been revealed for the game, one for Space Marines and one for Necrons.
The Hammerfall Bunker is a fortified emplacement whose entire role is to build a nice beachhead from which they can attack. The new fortification can feature heavy bolters or heavy flamers on the sides and a Hammerfall missile launcher up top featuring Superfrag and Superkrak missiles.
The Necron’s fortification is the Convergence of Dominion. Each one consists of three ancient Starstele which are armed with transdimensional abductors. They bolster units nearby and can perform Translocation Protocols to redeploy across the battlefield.

This is a special launch box to celebrate the new edition so it won’t be around forever.
