I was fighting a roughly 10,000 per side apocalypse battle today and had a lot of trouble with some necrons. We lost but the whole battle was not in our favor: no super heavies while fighting three, we had less points and terminators seemed to have horrible luck. Does any one have suggestions on fighting necrons? If we killed them they came back, we were stretched too thin to phase them out and we couldn't do a thing against the monoliths (there were two)
Any one have any suggestions?
I had plenty of anti-tank but it either was ineffective, got killed by teleporting necrons or was tied up dealing with super heavies.
ive found psyker battle squads to be very effective against necrons, reduce their leadership and then force a morale test. works a charm every time
If he persists, put a metal dreadnought in a sock and hit him once with it. Keep it within reach during your next game.
Usually focus all your firepower on the warriors first. Concentrated fire wins battles. A lot of blast templates helps out a great deal as well.
If you're fighting a smaller battle kill the warriors to force a phase-out. In all battles you need to target the Lords as they can be very annoying what with resurection orbs and the like. Always take plenty of tanks, and lots of meltaguns. The best way to destroy monoliths is either with melta weaponry, lascannons, demolishers or vanquishers. Rough riders are also useful against necrons, as are stormtroopers.

Shoot any special units with WBB. Mostly Destroyers, they can't get back up if you smoke the unit and there's not an identical one within 12" I believe. He also may need a Res Orb if you use big guns.
Once all the special units are dead just pour fire into the Warriors and wear them down. Ignore Monoliths. Just take out the heavy guns and the fast units than Phase him out.
Necrons are an easy win for most IG armies. We have to much Ordnance and armor.
