Got a few questions about the background of unfamilar Necron units

Pylons - exist in 40K thanks to Forge World

Warbarques, Abattoirs, Obelisks and the Aeonic Orb - where are these from? Were they inventions purely for Raiders? Are they pulled from GW artwork or concepts?

The abattoir, orb, and obelisks were ok'd by jervis and were originally intended to be released as models (before the plug got pulled on epic) when the SG necron range was released.

The war barque came during the raiders development, and was based off of one of the concept sketches that gw made when designing the monolith (those original sketches were actually used again recently by gw to design their latest vehicle releases for the necrons in 40k)

How do you pronounce that by the way?

Every time I read it I think 'war-bee-que' like a BBQ that goes to war :)

"War bark", it's a real word BTW. :-)

Here's a copy: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-1UD6vZFNMu0/T ... Barque.jpg

With a bit of google fu you can find all the old sketches (done by jes G in 2001), and have fun comparing them to the recent releases.

I have to admit that came up in my searches and I assumed it was selling glue. :) Never even looked at it.
