Basically, deploy opposite from wherever the ‘Crons deploy (So that I’ll be able to reach them by turn 2), but still having some cover for first turn firing would be beneficial. This depends on what they do, but you know what I’m aiming for. Rhinos/ Immolators lined up on the very front. Exorcists behind them, unleashing hell on treads. Canoness’ and Seraphim just behind the Rhinos/Immolators, using them as cover.
Necron Monoliths have the rule “Living Metal” which means my good anti-mech is fair useless. Meltaguns and Eviscerators won’t have 2D6 Armour Penetration against them. Looks like I’m aiming for phase-out. Kill some 37 models and they leave the board, instant victory.
First turn: Drive up, pop smoke, Exorcists fire on Destroyers/Wraiths.
Second turn: Drive up, disembark and smack-down with Rending-esque Bolters + Heavy Flamers (Similar to Rending, but AP1 instead. Fairly certain that bypasses WB. Meltaguns thrown in for good measure. Immolators re-roll wounds with Heavy Flamers (3+ with reroll... 88.89%). Any units that survive, will be charged by my Canoness’ and Seraphim with 2++/3++ and Eviscerators to ensure that they can’t hit at me, and I will then not give 2++ and Hit-and-Run so that I can open fire on them again on Turn 3. Exorcists will lay down fire where needed. Should be Phase-out... will send Rhino back for own objective if failing just as a backup (unless ‘Lith lands there). Contest/control his objective.
Vote closes on Friday the 10th of June at 1800 PM. Votes as usual must be in bold, and posted along with a reason. It doesn't have to be good mind you, just written down. Crap reasons will have no negative repercussions aside from your peers thinking you are an idiot.
If no tactics have been submitted, please assume average skill level for that player.
SoB necrons don't stand a chance against a well balanced list and SoB have a solid list so i predict phase out by turn 3, 4 if necrons play briliantly.
This is a tough one. The sisters have a blinding set of tactics that should work very well, on the other hand capture and control with 2 monoliths really benefits the necrons.
The necrons can block off both objectives by parking a monolith ontop of them. So the sisters player is spot on with going for phase out. However there are a couple of things that could hinder the plan. Firstly the sisters player is right. Ap1 WILL ingore WBB. Except when in range of a resurection orb. So those rending bolters and flamers will hurt, but the crons will be getting back up a lot of the time. Also worth considering is that if they get summonded back through the monolith, they get ANOTHER chance at WBB. That could make it queit difficult to get the necrons to stay down. Also theres always the chance the necrons could be summoned through the other monolith, which would really mess things up.
Secondly, the bit about charging in with cannoness and seraphim is a very good plan, which could go horribly wrong with one little unit. That lord + paraiahs. They'll ignore all saves, invulnerable or otherwise, so those cannonesses and seraphim are in for a fair bit of hurt.
In summary, its not going to be queit such a smooth ride for the sisters. Its certainly possible for phase out with the sisters tactics... however the necrons, if played well, could survive. Unfortunatly average tactics isnt playing well. So sisters it is
Your friendly neighbourhood gargantuan creature
I agree with Hierodule. Necrons definitely can win this one with smart play. However, average tactics isn't going to win it for them.
Record: Win - Loss - Draw: Hive Fleet Pandora (New) 32-6-6 Space Wolf 7th Co. 52-11-6
Blood Angels 12-4-2 Daemonhunters 20-8-3
Imperial Guards 12-5-2 Daemons 8-3-2
Had necrons submitted t/d it woulda/coulda been their game.
Exorcists destroy Destroyers. Rhinos drive around like hooligans. Necrons phase. Those SoBs.
