    Hi mate, first of all look at the thread i put in and particulalry post 5 or 6 which explains in detail the 2500pt battle i had with a Necron army and how the units faired.

    .Shas'O in my opinion is not worth the points, stick with the Shas'El, its cheaper and as effective.
    .Deathrains for crisis suits is the way to go very effective, max them out.
    .Gun Drones are your friend they have speed they provide LOS protection, they act as speed bumps, they kill and are cheap and as Rikimaru has pointed out to me and i have used, link a squadron with the Shas'El and you have a preverbial circular saw running towards your enemy.
    .Personally i would keep the stealth suits simple 6 of them are enough without drones.
    .A sole hammerhead i found to be ineffective, you either need two or replace
    . Sniper drones (full squad) is needed these babies can pin and take out key units a la Lord, Ctan, Flying Tyrant, Fexes.

    This is my 2-cents, good luck
    Never give up, Never surrender

    Did ok dmg on elder but didn't do much to necrons

    Shas'o
    Missile Pod; Hard-wired Multi-tracker; Plasma Rifle; Shield Generator
    I had really bad luck didn't do as much dmg with this guy because for 1'ens!?
    Elite:

    3 Crisis Battlesuit
    Missile Pod; Plasma Rifle; Multi-Tracker
    Worked well
    3 Crisis Battlesuit
    Missile Pod; Plasma Rifle; Multi-Tracker
    Worked well
    Troops:
    6 Fire Warrior
    well...
    10 Kroot, 4 Kroot Hounds
    10 Kroot, 4 Kroot Hounds
    worked as a great meat shield for a good 3 turns
    Heavy Support:
    2 Broadside Battlesuit; teamleader with Drone Controller; Multi-Tracker; Twinlinked Railgun; Smart Missile System;2 Shield Drone;
    as I said was bit unlucky, but did kill 2 elder tanks and hurt a monolith (space marines killed it9
    2 Broadside Battlesuit; teamleader with Drone Controller: Multi-Tracker Twinlinked Railgun; Smart Missile System;2 Shield Drone;

    Are you going to make any changes to the list after that battle?
    If you rep me please leave your name or PM me so I can thank you, or even pass on the favor.

    I think I would split the 2 groups of Crisis Battlesuit in to 3 groups of 2 making them more mobile, and change one of the teams in to Plasma Rifle and fusion blaster.
    Maybe only take 2 teams of Sniper Drone ( and keeping them close and fireing at same target). Broadside and Multi-Tracker is not as good as I remembert it is rare that they can use the 2ed weapon anyway (and even more rare it can do dmg on the targets!) next time I will go with Drone Controller or the "slow and purposeful".

    When you play this list you have to move your Crisis and HQ's in to good cover or out of sight, and using range and/or cover for Broadside is a good ideer.
