I know it's not Canon, but has anyone come up with rules for playing Necron, and if so, how would they incorporate themselves in a warband? I could imagine a Necron styled after Legion from Mass Effect being quite interesting.
stop me if you've heard this one

I had my PCs helping a Necron Lord for a while. He used to be a Lord but was betrayed and improsned. So you could use that as a story line.
As for traits/skills look at the Necrons in the Tome of Fate.

You should read the short story Duex Ex Mechanicus by Andy Chambers (originally published in Inferno! Magazine several years ago, reprinted in the Black Library omnibus book Let The Galaxy Burn). It features- SPOILER WARNING!- a Necron infiltraitor in an Adeptus Mechanicus explorator group (needless to say, things end badly for the servants of the Machine God…). That would be an interesting twist to a Black Crusade campaign: one of the heretics in the PC warband is secretly a disguised Necron, persuing his own agenda- and since Necrons are hard-core anti-Chaos, that agenda will almost certainly result in the eventual Total Party Kill of the group if successful…

Sounds like the perfect guy to have on your team, my Alpha Legionaire would use him to dispose of any allies who'd outlived their usefulness, at least until it was just the two of them left (everyone knows that Necrons can't Self Terminate). lol
