As I feel that the Necrons, who were already arguably the most powerful faction in 40k, have gotten a ridiculous buff to the point that their power level should be beyond the scope of the setting, I've decided to make this Scenario. The Necrons, all of them, have reawakened completely and reunited under the Silent King who realizes that transferring their minds back into the bodies of squishy organics is monumentally stupid. Their Tomb Worlds are at full waking status, their fleets have gathered and are ready for war, their generals all have complete loyalty to the Silent King, and the entirety of their sinister technology is at the ready.

They have one objective, kill everyone else in the galaxy, including the Tyranids and any forces the bugs have outside the Galaxy.

Can the full might of the Space Tomb Kings Necrons prevail and eradicate organic life? The Necrons also have full usage and control over the C'tan.

I'm not overtly familiar with the Newcrons, but aren't all three 'evil' factions in WH40K already so horribly overpowered that it's just a race of who gets to eat/kill everything first? What do the Newcrons have to stand the combined might of twelve galaxies worth of Tyranids and the Eldritch horrors of Chaos?

They have usable time travel now, Orikan uses it whenever he feels like his prophecies didn't go as planned. Apparently the only reason they don't use it to screw over everyone is "honor." Also they keep the C'tan as pets, every major tombworld is a world engine in waiting, and they can rig suns to explode rather easily. Oh and Tachyon arrows, which can be used by one infantry man, can travel across infinite distances and punch through mountains or Titans. It's a one shot weapon for C'tan and Necron Lords, but it still reeks of Matt Ward's wankery.

So... How do other guys win against them?

Oh and the Void Dragon that the Emperor himself overcame by the skin of his teeth? It's now just a shard of the full Void Dragon.

Thank you Matt Ward!

From what I gather, all victories against Necrons before have only been won through superior numbers, copious amounts of luck, or the other guys were space marines of some sort and therefore had plot armor too thick for gauss flayers to penetrate.

Chaos could at least match them. Maybe beat them.

40k win because of the Chaos Gods.

Ah but the Necrons have a crap ton of tech that no-sells Chaos' entire presence in very large areas.
