Description






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.

Wargear

  • Glyph of Tombs
    Once the guardians of massive stasis-tombs, with the awakening, the
    grim Canoptek Spyders have joined the legions of deathless on the
    field, providing critical repairs, scavenging material, and when
    necessary, eviscerating enemies.
    Additional Energy is bestowed upon the Overlord for bearing
    this glyph.
  • Glyph of the Star Gods
    The C’tan all share a common trait of uncommon cruelty. They demand
    fealty and worship, sometimes offering small boons to their
    followers. Increased energy regeneration is granted to the bearer
    of this glyph.
  • Glyph of the Wraith
    Nightmarish in appearance, Canoptek Wraiths traverse any
    battlefield with ease, bringing terror and death to their enemies.
    This glyph grants increased movment speed to the Overlord.
  • Glyph of Living Metal
    Crypteks often seek to improve on existing Necron technology where
    they can. This glyph provides additional Health and Health
    Regeneration.
  • Glyph of the Reclaimer
    The bearer of this ancient and terrible glyph is capable of
    draining the Health of nearby enemies. The Overlord receives a
    large boost to Health Regeneration based on the number of enemies
    within range.
  • Glyph of the Tireless Harvest
    Upon awakening from the Great Sleep, it is not uncommon for Lords
    and Overlords to have lost a significant portion of their previous
    personalities or even sanity. Worlds and civilizations unfortunate
    enough to be situated near the stasis-crypts of such a master often
    fall under the terrible scythes of these reckless horrors.
    A reduction in all ability cooldowns is granted to the bearer
    of this glyph.
  • Glyph of the Implacable
    There are many in the Imperium who believe the Necron threat to be
    unstoppable. While they may overestimate the organizational
    capabilities of these ancient warriors, they are wise to be wary
    and may save their own lives for thinking so. This stoic glyph
    grants additional Armor Rating.
  • Mindshackle Scarabs
    Necrons seek to either destroy or enslave. When destruction is not
    desired and a planet continues to defy them, Mindshackle Scarabs
    are often used. It is unknown how many worlds have simply laid down
    their arms in the face of overwhelming power or have been the
    victim of these mind-altering creatures.
    Mindshackle scarabs turn a foe against his or her allies for a
    period of time.
  • Nanoscarabs
    In addition to the already significant regenerative properties of
    the Necrodermis, Nanoscarabs can make the Overlord nearly
    invincible to minor damage.
  • Nightmare Shroud
    Upon activation, the mind-twisting effects of the Nightmare Shroud
    immediately begin to take hold. Weak-minded enemies are sent
    fleeing in terror as their thoughts are violently invaded.
  • Phase Shifter
    Ancient Necron Crypteks perfected the art of ‘flickering’ in and
    out of reality, using it on a number of their more terrifying
    machines of war. A personal Phase Shifter allows the Overlord to
    instantly skip short distances, either to close in on a foe or to
    escape danger.
  • Phylactory
    Hundreds of spider-like machines are housed within a scarab-shaped
    charm and instantly released to repair the bearer’s wounds if he
    would take a fatal blow.
  • Monolithic Diadem
    Perhaps most emblematic of the Necron is the Monolith. Towering
    above the battlefield, even a single instance of these ponderous
    engines of war is often enough to sow fear and prompt swift
    subjugation. Part transport and part battlecruiser, the Monolith
    leaves only doom in its wake.
    Found within the antechamber of a wrecked Monolith, this Diadem
    reduces the energy requirements of all the Overlord’s
    abilities.
  • Diadem of the Nemesor
    The honorific of Nemesor is granted to the commanding noble of a
    particular campaign and is used to temporarily unite disparate
    Dynasties and armies of the Necrons into a single powerful and
    efficient force.
    This diadem grants improved combat prowess beyond the
    Overlord’s already substantial abilities.
  • Diadem of Reanimation
    The most feared of Necron traits is, without a doubt, Reanimation.
    Many Imperial accounts of battles with the Necrons tell of an
    unwitting soldier moving on to another foe only to be slain from
    behind by the one previously felled.
    The Overlord is able to self-revive after a short duration if
    he becomes incapacitated.
  • Technomancer’s Diadem
    Necron weaponry is not fully understood by anyone except the most
    elite of Necron technomancers, known as Crypteks. Weaving living
    metal and energy takes untold lifetimes to master.
  • Tachyon Diadem
    Tachyon technology is highly intricate and precise. This
    projector’s sliver-like projectiles are transformed from inert
    metal shards to unstoppable bolts of energy in an instant.
  • Raiment of Resurrection
    A Resurrection Orb is capable of raising allies from near fatal
    injuries. This ancient and powerful device is an iconic piece of
    technology and only wielded by members of the Necron Regency.
  • Raiment of the Tesseract
    Tesseract Labyrinths are essentially dimensional pylons that can be
    used to imprison or bind beings within their inescapable walls.
    Unassuming in nature, these ancient devices are highly valued and
    sought after by the lesser races.
    When active, the Tesseract Labyrinth locks enemies in place,
    leaving them vulnerable to attacks.
  • Raiment of the Nightbringer
    Sadistic and unimaginably cruel, the C’tan known as the
    ‘Nightbringer’ was the oldest and most powerful of his kind. When
    the Necrons finally bested the star god millions of years ago, it
    was broken into thousands of shards. These shards still contain
    vast power and were bound within Tesseract Labyrinths for use in
    only the most dire of circumstances.
    When released, the Nightbringer’s presence disrupts and damages
    enemies nearby.
  • Doomsday Edge
    Although the Book of Mournful Night, housed deep within the Eldar
    Black Library, chronicles the eventual doom of the Necrontyr people
    to the Deceiver’s guile, there were clear advantages to
    immortality. Now, millions of years after their Great Sleep begin,
    some Necron Crypteks and astromancers seek to undo what was wrought
    upon them by their own ambition.
  • Staff of the Obelisk
    Necron “Obelisks” are mortifying structures, often situated in the
    thickest of the fighting. Monstrous Canoptek Leeches are latched to
    its outer walls and rapidly repair any damage that it receives. For
    defense, four Tesla Spheres arc living lightning and can strike
    down multiple foes at a time making it an exceptionally potent
    anti-air battery.
  • Staff of the Phaeron
    Near the beginning of the perilous war with the C’tan, one Phaeron,
    Kabahkar, tasked the entirety of his loyal Crypteks with the
    construction of this particularly potent Staff of Light. Never
    satisfied, he had them toil away until the conflict’s dying days.
    By the time of the Great Sleep, he wasn’t once able to wield its
    powerful effects in battle against the star gods.
  • Celestial Staff
    After conquering Kronus and stopping the dormant Tombworld from
    fully awakening, the Blood Ravens took this unusual Staff of Light
    into their possession for examination. Contact with the
    investigative team was lost shortly thereafter.
  • Lance of Annihilation
    Unhinged masters of war, Destroyer Lords are of equal or greater
    power to any Lord or Overlord of the Necrons. The ranking nobility
    mainly seek to direct their unfettered bloodlust in battle.
    This particular weapon can unleash a barrage of energy, dealing
    massive damage in enemies caught in the area.
  • Voidreaper
    The Nekthyst Dynasty claims that this incredible weapon simply
    appeared in their crownworld’s armory when the Nightbringer was
    finally smashed into submission. True or not, the Voidreaper is a
    sight to behold, capable of rendering the mightiest armor useless
    in a single blow.
  • Warscythe of Extinction
    The Overlord bearing this fearsome scythe may project a physical
    barrier of energy that prohibits movement. Previous owners have
    used this to corner enemies and slay them while their allies looked
    on helplessly.
  • Warscythe of the Phalanx
    The rank and file of the Necron forces are more than a match for
    even the most elite of the younger races. When assembled in
    formation, few forces can even begin to stem the onslaught of gauss
    fire and tireless determination.
    Kills made with this Warscythe deal additional damage in an
    area around the unfortunate foe.
  • Staff of Light
    Both a symbol of nobility and power, the Staff of Light sends
    supercharged bolts of energy at opponents. Additionally, it is a
    potent power weapon in melee combat.
  • Overlord’s Diadem
    Passed on through their respective Dynasties, the Diadems of the
    Overlords are proudly treasured by their bearers as marks of
    timeless lineage and loyalty.
  • Raiment of the Overlord
    Ceremonial raiment of the most powerful of Necron nobility.

Abilities

  • Tachyon Arrow
    Fires a hyper-accelerated armor-piercing bolt at the target.
  • Immortal Reclamation
    Draw on immense inner power to sap the sentient energy of nearby
    enemies. This renders combat impossible but dramatically improves
    health regeneration.
  • Nanoscarab Repairs
    Instructs dormant nanoscarabs to begin repairing critical
    damage.
  • Resurrection Orb
    Unleash the ancient energy of the Resurrection Orb. Allies cannot
    be killed within its radius and will be revived when it fully
    activates if they were already incapacitated.
  • Phase Shift
    Phase out of reality and rematerialize a short distance away.
  • Tesseract Tomb
    Projects a pocket-dimensional labyrinth that traps and holds
    enemies firmly in its grasp while it is active.
  • Labyrinth of the Nightbringer
    Risk annihilation and allow the Nightbringer C’tan Shard to bring
    to bear its unfathomable power upon your enemies.
  • Voidblast
    Discharge energy from either the Staff of Light or Warscythe at a
    target, blasting it backwards and dealing damage.
  • Pitiless Strike
    Smash all nearby enemies with a stunning strike from the Doomsday
    Edge.
  • Mindshackle Scarabs
    Inflict mind-stealing scarabs into the target squad, causing it to
    fight for your cause for a duration.
  • Annihilation Barrage
    Multiple beams of scouring death strike in quick succession in a
    line from the targeted location.
  • Necrotic Barrier
    Project an impassible barrier that can halt an advance or re-route
    enemies. Enemies caught in the barrier as it materializes are
    knocked back.
  • Entropic Strike
    A hateful strike from the Voidreaper completely strips the armor of
    a target enemy and those nearby for a short duration.
  • Nightmare Shroud
    Fill the feeble minds of nearby enemies with courage-obliterating
    images of despair causing them to flee.

Achievements

  • The Red Harvest
    Complete 100 total waves as the Overlord.
  • Lord of Risen Doom
    Revive 2 Allies at a time (or 1 Ally and yourself) with the
    Resurrection Orb ability twice in a single game.
