    I'm really just starting out with 40K, but I hate Necrons already. A good number of players in my area are Necrons, and the only time I managed to beat one of them was when he killed off 80% of his army with a bad teleporting roll.

    What kind of strategies should I use when fighting Necrons? Really, kinda, general stuff. I'm planning to go Thousand Sons so, if there's anything I could with them, that'd be neat as well.

    Well, at the games workshop near my house I was talking to one guy there and he said the best way to kill both necrons and grey knights is you need to pour all of you fire into one unit until it is dead then choose a new target. Because if you kill the whole squad they can&#39;t use we will be back because none are within 6 inches.

    Use two things to survive:

    2+ saves. There are VERY few units in the necron army that can remove a 2+ save, and most people are too busy using immortals and destroyers to bother with them

    Cover and distance. Cover is obvious, it just will give your marines a save if you get hit by a monolith.

    Use two things to kill necrons:

    High str, High AP. A defiler set behind cover and surrounded by enough troops to make orb&#39;ing suicide will play merry hell with a necron player&#39;s core troops since almost everything in the army is a 3+ save. Powerweapons fall under this heading so a squad of deepstriking rubric terminators can go through 2 squads before your opponent has a chance to respond.

    Lots of shots. Focus every bit of fire you have into an isolated unit and obliterate it. Extra points if it&#39;s the only unit of that kind in the army (destroyers, heavy destroyers, etc). To keep necrons down you need to kill them unit by unit, not spread out like you can do to IG or tau. A squad of 9 horrors is very effective at this while remaining relatively inexpensive. Basically treat necrons as marines and use the corresponding weapons.

    And remember template weapons and blast weapons are your friend. Most necron players have this odd tendency to clump their warriors together.

    Also, necrons have nothing that counters psychic powers, so be sure to bring your winds of chaos and gifts of chaos.

    All right, thanks. I&#39;ll try that out next game. If I kill an entire squad, and there are none of his units within 6", is the squad out for the entire game, or can the Necron player still WBB the unit once he has a guy within 6"?

    If the WBB roll is failed, the model is removed permanently.

    A model may not make a WBB roll if there is no model of the same type (Warrior, Destroyer, etc.) within 6" of it, UNLESS there is a Tomb Spyder within 12" of the model AND there is another model of the same type (again, Warrior, Destroyer, whatever) anywhere else on the board. Watch for Tomb Spyders.

    Note that this distance rule doesn&#39;t apply to Lords.

    Sweet. Thanks.

    What does the guy have to roll for WBB to pass? Just wondering.

    Thanks in advance.

    necrons have a 50/50 chance of standing back up from WBB like the shot was nothing. of course the guy doesnt get a wbb role if the gun is twice the toughness or its a close combat weapon that ignores saves.

    listen...u need ordanance and weapons with armour piercing 3 or less, k? I m a necron player, and I hate(to the bone) Ordanance weapons&#33;&#33;&#33; They go right through my armour and don&#39;t let me get back up&#33;&#33; oh, and since ur chaos let me tell u...

    IF YOU WANT TO KICK A NECRON&#39;S ASS, AND REALLY yellow water HIM OFF?&#33; PLAY BLOODLETTERS&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

    I went to Games Day in Toronto over the summer, and played against blood letters, and my men were DESTROYED...they came right into combat and kicked my ass&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

    BLOODLETTERS, BLOODLETTERS, BLOODLETTERS, BLOODLETTERS&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;


    oh and to mad hatter... NO ONE that plays Necrons in my neighborhood packs them 2gether...we all keep them 2 inches from each model, but in a very cheap way, as long as one model in the back row is in coherency with the front row

    so take that&#33;&#33;&#33;
    &quot;You think you know fear? You haven&#39;t seen the relentless advance of death against you&#33; You think you know pain? You haven&#39;t felt the liquid steel of the cyborgs&#39; blade as they silently scream their pleasure in your face. It doesn&#39;t matter if you are human, orc, or any other mutated creature in this Universe; they killed us all once and they&#39;ll do it again. They want to do it again. Their number is Legion; their name is Death...who are we to get in their way?&#33;&quot;

    lol, that&#39;s a lot different than the players in my area. One uber-close phalanx. One barrage shot would be able to take out half the squad. Now I just need to go and buy a Defiler.

    :lol:

    Beat them in combat, and seriously outnumber them. If you sweep them they get no WBB whatsover. Sending some cheap guys in with some kickin lord should do it.
