    I have come up with a necron army list that is based on numbers, yes it is weird but it works. The idea of the army is to overwhelm. It is an excellent way to control quarters in cleanse missions. The drawback is that they have short range weapons so it would have to operate almost totally defensive to get the full effect of the weapons. Giving the lord an Orb would help sort of but not greatly. Tell me what you think...

    - 110 pts.

    Warriors
    - 17 men
    - 306 pts.

    I can tell you that such a list (dropping a Necron or two and getting a res orb) is one of the best ways to beat Tau. They shoot, shoot shoot, as you advance, and once you reach close combat, they don't have a way to stop you, so it's practically game.

    defenatlyey a nice list. if i was gonna do the same exact thing but u may want to cut some warriors some wear and just get 2 lords with res orbs. this way u always get wbb. it is kinda essential for thsi type of army, based on just marching up the board and getting up.

    I agree get at least ONE res orb since as you said this army is based on numbers, and the res orb is for making sure you keep those numbers.

    But the thing is, is it fun to play with? Because thats the whole point of the game isn&#39;t it? It might be fun but wont it also be a bit boring after a game or two?

    I see the same problem with the list that other people have pointed out here so far. It&#39;s really susceptable to heavy weapons. I would personally toss three of my Leman Russ tanks in my army and destroy a squad per shot. That way, by the time the crons got across the table to me, there wouldn&#39;t be any problem dropping them with masses of lasgun fire.
    With two lords that have res orbs, they will still get their wbb rolls, even against the Leman Russ&#39;s. Another guy at my store tried this same method with Orks. He just had masses of them walking towards me and my tanks realllllllly ate them up.

    Are the rules really this hard&#33;? Army lists go in the army list forum&#33;&#33;&#33;
    I&#39;ll move it this time, subsequent army lists posted in the wrong forum or that list wargear points will be locked.
