This is a concept idea for a large machine. Here\'s some background I wrote: The Harvester is a huge construct, comparable in size to a Monolith. It houses an extortionate amount of pure gauss energy. This energy is precariously suspended within three claws, making a mockery of the lesser races. Sometimes Harvesters are deployed deep in tomb worlds as mines, for anyone who is unfortunate enough to be detected by one will cause it to explode, creating a blast that is specifically designed to crush the souls - and only the souls - of all living things within the area. This leaves a lifeless carcass for the Necrons to use as they see fit. Few Overlords dare to take such a machine into battle, for the Harvester is incredibly unstable. Destroying the quantum field that holds the energy in place will cause the energy to explode at a subatomic level, the power of which disintegrates living metal and human flesh with equal ease.
