Whispers of his heresy run wild within the Adeptus Mechanicus. He actively seeks Necrons, entering their tombs and provoking the ancient machines from their slumber, relaying the will of the C'tan for the lords to carry out.

This once-human has shred every last piece of flesh from his body, save his mind, and kept few of his bionics and weapons so that all may know that he serves the Star Gods by choice.

My entry for the :iconeye-of-terror: Custom Character Contest, the techpreist-turned necron worshipper Shanako. Yeah, I know he looks a lil OP with his guass flayer, wrist mounted storm bolter, servo arm and warscythe. . . XD I'm pretty sure he'd be an illegal model in the table top.

EDIT: Changed his name from Geth to Shanako, just so I won't be accused of stealin' from Mass Effect. Thank goodness for evil-sounding name generators!

Fan theory that he once interacted and studied the Necrons in a legitimate way to learn their ancient technology but somehow started slipping in a more heretical direction...

Reminds me of what happened to the Iron Hands in that Alternate Universe world-building project from the Bolter and Chainsword WH40K resource website/online-forum: "The Dornian Heresy".

The necrons don't follow the C'tan anymore. They turned on them once they realized the C'tan screwed them over. They split them into shards to act as weapons.

I'll admit, it's one if not the ONLY good thing he's done.

Yeah, turning the Necrons into stone-cold, hardcore badasses that enslaved their own Gods was actually pretty cool on Matt Ward's part.

You know the necron defeated and split the C'tan into shards before they're great sleep.
