So with necs beeing the new opforce in the starterset and bringing a whole new range to the tabletop the question is: continue with or hold and incorporate new stuff?

We can have more than a single list in a faction. See... everyone other than Crons :)
Jokes aside, no need to worry about stopping Sautekh list for this. When we find out more and the range expands then see about spinning another themed list off, if warranted.

I'm all for a new dinasty and just keep developing all flavours, much like we do with other races and factions

I'm liking the look of the new models :) Definitely some conversion possibilities for Necron terrain or WE from some of those bits.

From a general look so far I don't see anything really significantly new on an Epic level (bar the Silent King but Epic lists don't normally include one off special characters). I'm sure they'll have added some new guns and unit variants, but zoom out a bit to an Epic scale and I expect the overall effect will be roughly the same as the existing lists. The 4 legged walker with a big gun could fairly well be counted as an Obelisk in an Epic list say.

It's a Monolith but could perhaps convert an Epic Aeonic Orb out of it? (just the top section on it's own, floating in the air).

Maybe we should add the new 'Potato Necron' on the GW site to the army lists? ;)

That Destroyer, or what we can see of it, looks much closer to Jez Goodwin's concept art for them than the current models.
