Introducing the Necron Overlord, a brand new hero for the Last Stand mode of Warhammer® 40,000® Dawn of War® II: Retribution™ and Warhammer® 40,000® Dawn of War® II: The Last Stand Alone™.
The Overlords of the Necrons lead the legions into the carnage of war, commanding absolute authority over their subordinates. Armed with crackling warscythes and potent weaponry of ancient design, they dispatch their foes in flares of blinding energy.
Contemptuous of the lesser races, Overlords are utterly convinced of their own superiority, and act accordingly. Only those who prove themselves worthy, by showing courage and skill at arms, might earn a quick death. For all others, agony and humiliation await.
Bringing a fresh playstyle to the battlefield, the Necron Overlord can be played as long-raged fast firing “battlecruiser” or as area-of-effect melee expert. A full complement of wargear supports either style of play.
The signature ability of the Necron Overlord allows him to summon the god-like Nightbringer Shard to the battlefield, part of a ancient star deity that can rain destruction on all the Overlord’s enemies.
