The Lychguard are the wardens of the nobility, said to be incorruptible and downright dedicated to their cause. While most Necrons don a basic suit of living metal, the Lychguard wear hulking suits of ancient armour, which are normally reserved for the nobility. After all, what good is a bodyguard if he's in a hundred different pieces? Most Lychguard wield heavy-bladed warscythes, which they use to devastating effect. Some will carry hyperphase swords and dispersion shields, which are slightly less powerful, but offer more protection to the unit.
Triarch Praetorians carry an immense responsibility. They are charged with guaranteeing that the Necron dynasties never crumble. When the Necrons turned to hibernation after the War in Heaven, the Triarch Praetorians remained awake. Now, as the Necrons stir ever more , the Triarch Praetorians have also re-emerged . They will not often join a battle immediately, rather opting to soar above the action on gravity displacement packs before throttling themselves right into the midst of the battle. With the devastatingly destructive rod of covenant at their fingertips there is not much hope for the survival of any living being.
