    Keep your warriors back...this is the kind of list I would ignore the uglies and focus entirely on the warrior squads forcing you to phase out. But you have 31 necrons, so it's not super bad. Just be aware of that tactic against you. I would use a res orb to KEEP them up, and drop the veil...instead use the monolith to port them.

    Personally i'd say drop that lord, get a 6th destroyer and split to two squads of three. use remaining points to add a third warrior squad (you'd have to shift numbers a bit)

    Nightbringer isn't terribly popular around here but if ya wanna use it go ahead.

    Having two HQ in a Necron list is a huge amount of points, you've put over 1/3 of your points into two models. I used to play two Lords until I figured they weren't pulling their weight. Now I tend to stick with one HQ and fill the rest with warriors, immortals destroyers and some blockers (Spyders/Scarabs)

    Same here Alzer...question, where did you fall when you pulled your 2nd lord out. Did you go veil with the immortals, or res orb for phalanx support? I try to keep my lord tooled around 150pts...just too sad to watch a 200 pt lord die!

    I'm also giving serious thought to chronos now!

    I run a res/vod lord in most games. A couple times though I tried running that AND a full-kit Wraithlord w/ 3 wraiths. ALL my opponents fear wraiths like the plague and focus fire on them so much taking them is pointless in my lists. So I drop the Destroyerlord until 1750 or so.

    I only have one foot lord and one destroyer and tend to use them for power-play tactics. Maybe I'll try taking a 170pt D-Lord sometime though.

    Your phase out is very very low. To have a fun list does'nt mean you have to phase out every game : P

    Drop the Lord and get 3 x 10 warrior squads and with the extra points nab a few more destroyers and split them up into 2 squads.

    So after the suggestions i rethought it a bit
    HQ

    Nightbringer 360

    Warriors 540
    warrior x 10
    warrior x 10
    warrior x 10

    Fast Attack 360
    Destroyer x 3
    Destroyer x 3

    Scarab Swarm x 5


    Heavy 235
    Monoith

    Got rid of the lord and got some more rons, but i thought giving up about 3 for some scarabs in order to control the field more was worth it.

    Looks fine to me, make sure the NB is up front. And tie up the nasty things with scarabs.

    I would drop the nightbringer and the lords veil and switch it with a destroyer body or somthing. also for a 1500pt army you have very little anti tank. Your highest non cc strength is 6 for the destroyers which would be useless against a land raider or equivilant.

    Here is the list that I would suggest:

    HQ

    Necron Lord 170
    Res orb
    Destroyer body

    Warriors 648
    warrior x 12
    warrior x 12
    warrior x 12

    Fast Attack 250
    Destroyer x 5 (split into two squads of 2 & 3)


    Heavy 430
    Monoith
    Heavy Destroyer x 3
