I put my name down for a compotition today for 1500 point take and hold match. I havn't played 5th Edition yet, and in all honesty, I only played about 4 games at 4th edition.
I havn't decided yet whether to use Necrons or Guard, so I have put together a list for each and will see which one gets the better reception.
I have never played a game with Necron before, so this is the first list I have made. I realise it isn't perfect, but I don't have too many models at the moment, and don't have a huge amount of money to buy lots, so its kind of the best of what I have. I don't really want to know if the list is perfect or not, just if it will give me a good shot at the game!
Anyway, here is my Necron list, please tear it to shreds!

Necron Lord, with Veil of Darkness, and (Phylactery, or Gaze of Flame)
Two sets of 12 Necron Warriors with Disruption Fields
3 Scarab Swarms

Ok you're low on troops for 5th ED and your points honestly need to be consolidated.
I suggest removing one of the HQ choices and swapping in another squad of warriors. Take off the disruption fields from your warriors. Pick your heavy destroyers up to two. Pariahs are iffy (not unusable but not very competitive)
Nightbringer and scarabs would be plenty of melee punch, or pariah and scarabs. Veil of Darkness is bet used with immortals, and you will want a res-orb.
HQ: Lord, Orb, Chronometron - 150
Elt: 5X Pariahs. - 180
Trp: 3x10 warriors - 540
FA: 5x Destroyers - 250
FA: 5X Scarabs - 60
HS: 2x Heavy Destroyers - 130
HS: Monolith - XXX
HQ: Nightbringer - xxx
Trp: 3x10 Warriors - 540
FA: 4x Destroyers - 200
FA: 3x Scarabs - 36
HS: 2x Heavy Destroyers - 130
HS: Monolith - 235
These are both balanced lists though not terribly competitive, I tried to stick with what you seem to have. Remember in 5th ed you need some extra anti-tank punch as well as plenty of troops.
Cheers for the help! I'll go with what you have said, and see how I get on!
If your original list is all the Necron models you have, I would say stick with your Guard list as that looks quite spiffy. How many warriors and destroyers do you have in total?
I do think Alzer's lists will give you a decent shot, they should at least be a bit fun to play. There's nothing I'd really add to them except maybe trying to have two squads of 3 Destroyers instead of one squad of 5 or 4 Destroyers, just helps them live longer.
I'd also be personally tempted to switch out 5 Pariahs for 10 more Warriors, however that would increase your phase out from 9 to 11, and with the 5 pariahs and a phase out of 9 you could just hide a squad of warriors and as long as they're untouched you'd never need to worry about phase out (incidentally ideal for take and hold).
