ah, a tender spot for the Necron player
Pariahs, who could possibly dislike fielding those as a true servant of the C'tan;
like everyone who saw their rules?
So what is their problem, they're close combat troops with 1A en I3, they are hideously expensive, because you need a large group for them to have resilience, and even here they fail, for they do not have the Necron special rule.
And because they are 0-1, they are hard even with lists to fit their needs (Nightmare build for example), kill that 1 unit and the build falls apart.
A lot of the misery thus stems forth from the fact that they are expensive and hard to protect from harm, even the minimum protection needs them having 10 models (equal points to the Nightbringer), and preferably a Lord with Solar Pulse
So what if we'd bundle it to 1 guy with the rules, a higher Initiative, and who can hide in a squad for resilience, for reference, I scaled the Pariah Lord to the Pariah as the Lord to the Immortal, with the exchange of 1 point of S for 1 point of WS

May buy additional equipment from Necron armoury, may not buy Ressurection Orb or Phylactry.
The next phase of life: In an army that includes a Pariah Lord, the 0-1 restriction on Pariahs is lifted, in addition, they count as scoring troops
(not quite sure about this last rule, seems fun and given how bad Pariahs are might not be too overpowered )
All advice on this guy is warmly welcome
I like it. Not too over-powered and the rules are simple enough.
The next step would be to unsuck the Pariahs. That can be done simply by either 1) reducing their costs or 2) keeping their costs the same but also giving them a 5+ Inv save.

Imperial Guards 12-5-2 Daemons 8-3-2
I've always liked this concept but for different background reasons, I like the idea of a rogue pariah army that are proud of what they are but don't want to serve the C'Tan I suppose.
That aside I'll see if i can find an opponent willing to let me give these rules a go.
