Games Workshop Previews New Necron Crusade Rules

While one-off battles are certainly fine, many players love the thrill of a whole campaign, where they see their army grow and change over time as they gain experience by participating in battles. The Crusade System brings that to 40k. Each faction will have their own rules when it comes to what they get when updating, and here, we get a look at the Necrons.

From the article:

The new edition of Warhammer 40,000 introduced the Crusade system, which sees your army grow and evolve from a small skirmish force into a mighty, battle-hardened legion. Each of the new codexes will feature faction-specific Crusade rules, and today, we’re taking a look at those for the Necrons.

The Necrons codex features four Agendas, which give your army bonuses for achieving specific goals during a battle. Suppose you’re facing an enemy force that includes lots of small units. In that case, you’ll want to select Supremacy Through Annihilation so that your units can gain experience points for destroying them.
