Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm a necron and tyranid player but a friend has challanged me to play eldar ( the race he plays) versus him as necrons.
I'm basically going to stack as many scatter laser shots as i can. The game with be 2500 points I dont have the codex right now but when i do i will post a real list. But I was thinking of taking...
1 farseer with various upgrades and some harlequin bikers (I think I can take these?!)
6 harlequins with kisses and so on for all the sqauds
6x12 gaurdians all with scatter lasers
3*3 vypers with shurkien cannons and scatter lasers
3 falcons with holofields, shuriken cannons , scatter lasers, pulse lasers and so on and so forth.
I will post a actual list in a few days once my friend lends me his codex
but can anyone give me any advice on how to beat my own army?
For necrons, I'd actually advise some dark reapers, as long as you are both tailoring lists. Grab some of them, some fire prisms, maybe harlequins, but I'd advise banshees instead.
Harlequin bikes are no longer legal, but if your friend lets you, I guess you can.
Aside from those suggestions, decent list. I'd drop falcons and your harlequins to free up room for the above.
One thing i love about the eldar, are how they can negate so many armor saves. Star cannons and reaper launchers are my favorite. SO if i knew ahead of time i was going up agianst a necron player i would take a sqaud of dark reapers w/ and exarch that has a missile launcher and fast shot. , so your going to kill around 9 necrons with 1 sqaud a turn. I love dark reapers compared to fire prisms, but agianst necrons i would have no choice but to take two fire prisms, this is because of the monolith! I would normaly take a wave serpent or two with bright lances, but bright lances wont work agianst its armor. So two fire prisms, combining fire for a high str shot. plus the dispersed fire, when combied will knock the necrons off thier feet
Those are just the heavy choices. Harliquins are nice becuase of thier kisses, but its a low chance of actually happening. I would rather take howling banshees, thier cheaper and they will tear through necron worriers like theres no tomorow Try taking them in a wave serpent w/ TL star cannons for even more knocking down power.
As for your HQ, i would take a farseer w/ doom. The howling banshees have a low str, so doom will really help them on the assualts.
so something like...
1 (maybe 2) faseer w/doom and a few warlocks
3x10 howling banshees with exarchs all in wave serpants with starcannons
6x12 gaurdians with starcannons
5 dark reapers with exarch
2 fire prisms
is there a upgrade I can give to warlocks to help with the gaurdians lowish ballistic skill?
thanks guy, I pretty much know Im going to loose since Necrons are pretty easy to get a grasp of (but very hard to master) and eldar are alot harder at the start. Also whenever I play him I have a hard time taking down his fire prisms since I cant get more than a glancing hit with my weapons and It seems like with holofeilds Its actually immposible to outright kill it does anyone have any advice on good ways to take out eldar heavy support wth necrons?
