I need some help making a 500 points Necron army list as local rougue trader starting some tournament 8-week long thing, and being new I just dont know what is good and what isnt. Pretty much combat patrol, some rules are no special characters, no vehicles with armor save over 33, and no ordinace weapons and have to have 2 troop choices. I was thinking maybe a Necron lord 2 squads of troops maybe around 7 each and some scarab swarms? Please post a list of your own 500 point necron army below so I can see what people are going with.
First off, a resurrection orb is a must for the lord--consider making that his only wargear. Do scarabs have the necron ability? If so, go with them--if not, just take warriors.
Edit: perhaps you could even drop the lord (assuming combat patrol rules) for more warriors
Hive Fleet Furi Kuri 32/21/4
Tomb Kings: 8/5/2
Im in ur Halo, killin ur covernantz
hmm anyone else got any suggestions, or thier army lists?
isnt minimum squad size for warriors 10? if so and you have to have 2 troops squads you can pretty much only do 10 warriorsx2 and lord with orb..theres your 500 points
what a long strange trip its been
Combat patrol rules are different, minimum squad size 1, no HQ required just 2 troops choices I believe.Originally posted by jasper@Oct 27 2004, 23:32

as many warriors as possible would be effictive becuase they never seem to stay down when i face them.
2 troops of 10 warriors
Lord w/ rez orb

thanks guys, i guess i will just go with the 2 troops of 10 and lord with res orb like black templar suggested.
OK, it seems we are having an issue regarding the combat partol mission rules. All you need is one troops choice, that's it. Therefore don't even take the lord at all.
If you do take the lord don't waste your points with the res orb at such a small level. First of all it has a very small area of effect. Secondly, you will not run into many power weapons or s8 or above weapons at this level. For the points you can add two more warriors.
So for a combat patrol list, I reccomend a solid unit of warriors (12-15) backed up by whatever else you want to use. A 5 man squad of immortals is nice in this case since they can put out alot of shots and are very tough. Throw in some wriaths and you're good to go. Of course this all depends on what models you have and how you want the army to play. If you like the way a particuluar unit looks in the codex then give it a try!
The enemies of the Emperor fear many things. They fear discovery, defeat, despair and death. Yet there is one thing they fear above all others. They fear the wrath of the Space Marines!
I was in a similar escalation league and I used 2 10 man warrior squads and 3 wraiths and didn't lose once. Just march your warriors forward (unless your opponent is CC) and pick off stragglers with your wraiths.
