    OK I regualrly face my step sons Necrons with both SoB and Nilla Marines,
    The following work:

    1. Plamsa Cannon, (get em while they are hot) - usually in devestator squads
    2. other plasma weapons
    3. power weapons
    4. Faith (oops - dont suppose that helps you)

    But the real crux of beating necrons is not about what you use but tactics.

    Necrons have a great big weakness - phase out

    You dont have to kill the whole army, and you certainly dont have to kill things that dont impact phase out. focus on which of his units contribute to phase out, hen destroy them starting at the weakest. concentrate your fire because if you can destroy a unit entirely - they WONT be back

    Use things like snipers and whirlwinds to pin units you dont have to kill or dont want to (wraiths for example)
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    yes thats what i initially thought but with that regeneration orb near by and the lords invulnerable save to help them i find it very hard to wipe units out especially since im on a 1500pts budget! Oh and what are vanilla marines?

    What may I ask is a High Marshall in 40K, I know its a High Rank in the Military these days but is it some kind of Black Templers Spec Charecter? If you could post the stats it would be much appreciated.

    OK I play nilla marines so most of my comments come from there

    Playing against my step sons necrons is why I have a dev squad with 4 plasma cannon (mwaha mwaha)

    According to your list he only has one lord, but has 2 squads of necrons, a squad of wraiths and a squad of parriahs, only one of these will benefit from his Lords Res orb, hit the others, he will probably be tempted to put the lord with the Pariahs, this is a mistake cause you can hit the other stuff and get him to phase out without even targeting them
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    why do u take a command squad they are a waste of time in black templars your better off taking more regular guys for cheaper IMO

    and for whats is a high marshel it is not a chaplain with 3 wounds and no equipment well it technicly is but thats a bluddy silly way of putin it its the black templar equivelent to a force commander

    oh to be super devastating take a vindicator it wouls eat any unit that doesent have the res orb to help it up

    BTW does usin storm troopers in the army work well i was concidering allying some in but wasnt sure if it was worth it

    well, they are cheap stormtroopers, and your wrong bout command squads, you can have 2 assault weapons in the same unit, perfect for templars on the charge, not to mention apothecaries, techmarines, veteran sergeants etc.

    so what if theres extra assult weapons your paying 30 more points for a ten man squad it not like ya can giv the squad terminator honours either so it just dont seen worth it unless your in a high point game and you give the techie, apothocarie and standard bearer all powerweapons and stuff

    veteran sergeants?? umm ok since black templars cant have vteren sergeants and all
