    My bikes are going to be the key unit(s) in this one. They are going to use their scout move into cover then assualt them on turn 1. My termies will deepstrike near the bikes and use the assualt as cover from the other squads of necrons. The turn after that, the terminators will help out the bikes(if needed) to assualt the same squad.

    Basicly my bikes and 3 squads of terminators, will be Necron-hopping(like island-hopping in WW2). Moveing from squad to squad, sstaying clear of the one squad with the necronlord with the veil of darkness.

    Gamete

    Gamete, the resurrection orbs just make his numbers ridiculously resilient.

    I'm going with Gamete on this one.
    And I have a couple of reasons to support this.
    1) The necrons would be able to shoot down the tanks in no time
    2) the termies would die easily from the crons
    3) lots of shots on the deathwing, can't save them all now can we?

    I think Dragon will win, simply because Gamete only has a bunch of souped up bolters, nothing that works against terminators.
    And realistically, the Terminators will get in almost unopposed, they can DS and will get shot up a bunch, but will charge in with enough Powerfist attacks to destroy the Necrons, they won't get a regenerate thing, so they're stuffed.
    And if they run away they'll totally get Sweeping advanced, they have such low Initiative.
    Some conter-point:
    - Sweeping Advance is disallowed for Termies (unless DA has some special rule 0
    - The RO overcomes Instant Death conditions and doesn't require that the Lord carrying it be attached to the squad. The latter aspect of RO also applies to the VoD.
    - Volume of fire will definitely bring the numbers down substantially. Those souped-up bolters are a danger to everything in the DA list.

    Additional points:
    - There is a high probability that any unit making an assault will be left in the open to tons of Warrior fire if the assaulted squad is VoD'd out. This will allow squads to be picked off piece by piece.
    - Sure the bikes are fast, but what are they going to go after? The Necron list doesn't have any specialized units, just mass bodies. They are far more vulnerable than the Termies that will have to roll reserves to arrive, they will be easy pickings if they made offensive moves.
    - The Dreads and LR are vulnerable to everything in the Necron list.
    - Very few bodies on the DA side, I wouldn't be surprised if most to all of it gets wiped out.

    Gamete.

    I agree with kore here, the Terminators are going to put a kink in the Necron battle plans, but that's the only thing they'll have to worry much about. The necrons are not going to worry too much the dreadnoughts as long as they avoid it in CC, and they'll laugh off the Land Raider. It could be close, but I think the sheer manpower of the Necrons will win the day. Gamete for the win.

    Gamete. Pretty much for all the reasons listed above. I would be kinda tempted to go with O-dragon due to the scenario, but his tactics didn't fit.

    All I got to do is stay away from the squad with the Lord with VoD, its not that hard. I also am useing the hill thats spliting his army in half as cover. All my army is going to be working as one. Useing the assualt as cover aswell as the terain. With all that blockage, not includeing the squad or 2 of necrons that are in combat, thats not alot of shots going towards my guys.

    3 squads of terminators, each with a 2+ save and 5+ inv. And one appothicary. And my T5 bikes. With 3+ saves. I can split that squad of 6 bikes, makeing 3 squads of 3 bikes, and 2 squads of 1 attack bike. The bikes are really just the meat thats keeping the necrons from going too far so the terminators can shoot/assault the crap out of them. I don't know about you but, 2 power weapons from the bikes and a bunch of powerfists from the terminators, alot of necrons won't be back. Thats not includeing the rending or melta weapons.
