Imperial Armour Volume 12: The Fall Of Orpheus has been announced on FW's web site and in a press release. It will be previewed at FWOD with all the designers and artists on hand, and no doubt it will be available for pre-order then or shortly afterwards.
A teaser video for IA12 was briefly available on Youtube yesterday before being removed, apparently featuring Necrons, Death Korps of Krieg and MInotaur Terminators. Some Necron terrain was visible but not sure if it is just for display, and a new Necron Pylon which was mentioned at Games Day.
For myself, I am really looking forward to this release.
EDIT - video (typical GW teaser) now back up @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfLorOuFnX8&feature=youtu.be
EDIT EDIT - re-posting some pics of WIP Necrons from Games Day UK 2012, courtesy of Spruehammer and Faeit 212. The units mentioned were Necron Sentry Pylon, Necron Tesseract Arc[Ark] and Necron Night Shroud Bomber.
And of course the Canoptek Acanthrites were released earlier last year:

Interesting "teaser" in that it didn't show anything new?

Pics are up now of the new Night Shroud bomber and Realm of Battle Necron Tomb Citadel terrain board. Both are nice, but hugely expensive at £70.00 and £90.00 respectively, especially if you go for four of the terrain pieces connected together.

he Night Shroud is a dedicated bomber that is larger than the more numerous Night Scythe and Doom Scythe craft, alongside which it operates, whose origins date back countless aeons to the lost battles of the War in Heaven.
The Night Shroud was built to carry a relic of that ancient and apocalyptic conflict, so-called Death Spheres, containment vessels that imprison the merest fragment of anti-matter. The Death Sphere's potent warhead is kept out of phase with the material universe until the sphere detonates, when it unleashes an energy blast capable of annihilating anything it touches.
The Necron Night Shroud Bomber, designed by Daren Parrwood, is an imposing battlefield presence. This complete resin and plastic kit is packed with detail, and its sinister, elongated profile makes for an impressive centrepiece or painting project for any Necrons collection. Full rules and background for this construct will be included in the forthcoming Imperial Armour – Volume Twelve: The Fall of Orpheus.
The stasis-crypts of the Necrons are protected by great defensive structures; near-impregnable fortifications designed to stand against the ravages of eternity, hostile action and deadly environments. Tomb Citadels often stand on the outermost borders of a wider complex. They act as watchtowers and outposts that are often the merest tip of the iceberg; the fathomless depths of silent galleries and stasis-chambers that make up the nameless cities of the Necrons extending far below them.
A Tomb Citadel is far more than an inert relic of strange aeons past, however. Each is a near-living war machine in its own right, and Imperial combat records record these brutish structures rising from the very earth, or phasing strangely into existence in the midst of a Necron assault. If not quickly destroyed, these dread ziggurats will form a beachhead from which the undying legions pour forth to destroy their foes
The Realm of Battle Necron Tomb Citadel, designed by Blake Spence, is a 2' x 2' (609mm x 609mm) tile which can fit onto a Citadel Realm of Battle board.
