Im going to buy a necron army, but should I wait until the necron codex comes out?
The reason is what if I buy the mini's but then they update all of them, it would simply be a waste of money!
What do you think
PS. Heres my planned army, tell me what you think:party2:
HQ: Destroyer Lord w/Staff of Light, Phylactery, Resurrection orb
Elites: 5 Immortals
Troopers: 24 Necron Warriors
Fast Attack: 3 Destroyers
Fast Attack: 2 Wraiths
Heavy Attack: 1 Tomb Spyder
Crons wont be updated for a while dont worry. Even if they are, the current models are awesome.
Looks like a pretty good list. I'd think about freeing up some points, dropping the phylactery, and replacing it with a Cloak of Darkness. Being able to pull your necrons out of close combat and open up an enemy unit for another round of shooting is priceless.
I wouldn't worry too much about waiting for the next codex. It's looking like necrons will not be updated for quite a while.
So... if I gave some daemons a matte paint-job, would they be "Matte Daemons?"
Necron Tactica: Flying Circus
As everyone has said it'll be awhile before a new Necron 'dex comes out. So buy now, before the prices rise again.
Also keep in mind you get 3 bases of scarabs per box of warriors. Everyone's calm until you turbo boost scarab swarms at then.
I would also get 2 more tomb spyders. They don't shoot (unless you get the particle projector/cannon) so most people don't look at them as a threat. Until one takes out an enemy Landraider. 2d6 armor penetration. Great fun. Put 'em in the middle of a squad of troops and march, march, march.
Some people say to wait with the Wraiths till you do 1500 army... I would drop them and get more of some other units that you already have in your list...
