What inspired Warcraft?

Blizzard enjoyed success through the '90s with franchises like Diablo, StarCraft, and Warcraft.

Why are 40k models so expensive?

The reason they feel so expensive is because the games that Games Workshop supports require a large quantity of models, while companies like privateer games support games with a low count of models. As such, it is cheaper to buy an army for, say warmachine, than it is for Warhammer 40k or Age of Sigma.

Can necrons die?

They can usually only be truly slain by certain weapons. You can destroy a Necron's body for sure, but they will download back into their tomb systems and be uploaded into a new body. They're immortal as long as they have bodies available and their home computers (and all back-ups) aren't destroyed.

Are necrons good?

In my opinion Necron might be a good starter army because they don't have a lot different weapons (with different stats to remember), most units have similar rules, just a few special rules that rather take place phase wise than action wise - so more repetitive. It's probably good to learn the basics.

Can necrons make more necrons?

Technically not. Necrons are made of Necrontyr who are all either dead or Necron now. In older fluff they were making Pariahs out of humans and (presumably) other races.

Can necrons be corrupted by chaos?

Pretty sure Necrons can't be corrupted, they have no soul, which means no presence in the Warp. They're about as far removed from Chaos as you can possibly be. Theoretically, they could ally with Chaos, however unlikely that would be, but they would never be corrupted by it like other sentient species.
