Well, I've finally decided to start up a 40k army and get it finished and up on the table.. and it had come down to Iron Warriors (CSM) and Necrons. I showed both to my dad (who I persuaded to just now start 40k as the Space Marines; he likes them 'cause they're big ) and he said to go with the Necrons. So, instead of trying to confuse myself (again), I'm just going to roll with it.
Now, I have two ideas for the styles of army I want to play; firstly, the "normal" points limit is around 1850 (tourneys) or 2000 (friendlies). So, I'm not sure if my second "want-to-play" list will be effective with these points restrictions..
My first idea is to go with an All-Necron army; I wrote the list already and it is up in the Army Lists forum (if you could check it out for me..). This list centers around a strong core of Warriors with a Lord + Orb, and is backed up by Wraiths, Immortals, and Heavy Destroyers. No Monolith here; don't want one, don't need one.
The other idea is to go with the "fear" army; a while back, I saw a thread about it by, I believe, Gojiratoho. Pariahs, Flayed Ones, Gaze of Flame.. the Deceiver.. etc. I think this army would be incredibly fun, if a bit difficult to use, but it would certainly, if nothing else, look good on the table and really psyche my opponent out. However, I'm not sure how effective it will be when it is only around 1850-2000 points.. Pariahs and the Deceiver, especially, are incredibly expensive points-wise, and I don't want to go too low on the Necron models count for Phase Out to be easily accomplished.
So, I'd like opinions; neither list is going to use a Monolith (All-Necron = no Monolith, and the Monolith would take way too many points away from the fear army, when I need those points for as many Necrons as I can squeeze in when I have Pariahs, etc. inthere) and I'm not a huge fan of Scarabs.
Keep in mind, I want the first list to stay All-Necrons; so, while you can feel free to suggest things to me, I won't be changing my mind; so suggesting things like Pariahs, the Monolith, Tomb Spyders, etc. will be a waste of your time.
Any and all help will be appreciated!
(How many people on here play Necrons, anyways? It seems almost empty compared to other forums..)
