    1000 Point Starter List (Friendliy)

    Hello there to those who remember me! I am back on these boards again, and I would like to know what all you guys and gals thought of my starter 1000 point Necron List

    Hq
    Necron Lord-155
    (Res Orb, Phlyactrcy)

    Elities
    None!

    Troops
    11 Warriors-198
    11 Warriors-198
    11 Warriors-198
    Total: 594

    Fast Attack
    3 Destroyers-150
    4 Scarab Swarms-48
    Total: 198

    Heavy Support
    Tomb Spyder-55
    (This will played using the excellent Tomb Spyder Tatica! I will not be using the aterrible Staff of Light alternative on this BTW)
    Total: 55

    Grand Total: 1002 (Don't worry about the extra 2 points, it's a friendly list!)
    Phase Out: 9/37 (This might be 10/37, can anyone tell me if you'd round 9.25 up or down, I haven't got the Codex in front of me ATM you see, if you can't tell me that is fine)

    Tactics:
    Objective Based Games
    Take second turn (For objective grabbing at the end)

    March 22 warriors, spyder, lord and scarabs foward, 11 warriors and destroyers form fire base and hold nearest objective

    Spyder engages any light tanks (i.e transport) and assualt units
    Lord either helps the Spyder or supports the warriors
    Warriors capture objectives
    Scarabs hold up either assualt or fire bases (esp. objective holders)
    In fnal few turns, all the units that went forth atempt to contest/capture objectives.

    Killin' based games
    Everything except pyder and scarabs forms a firing line
    Scarabs and spyder do what they did for objective based games
    Lord supports Warriors and Destroyers
    Kill, Kill, Kill!

    Now these are the main areas where I need advice:
    1) Should I drop Phlyactery and add another swarm or not?
    2) Are my tactics any good?
    3) Have I got too many warriors?
    4) Should I drop the Spyder for something else (i.e another Destroyer, some more warriors, another Scarab unit etc.)
    And finally...
    5) Is this a good list?

    Comments and Critisism (spelling?) very much so welcome!

    Hey welcome back!

    Well your list looks decent for a 1k game. Couple small changes.

    You have plenty of warriors, you could even stand to drop one from each squad for a second tomb spyder. The extra hitting power is something you're going to want.

    Phase out always rounds down.

    I'd say swap the phylactery for a res orb on the lord. More bang for your buck. You could alternatively take a fifth scarab instead though.

    Your tactics seem sound. Remember to keep cover in mind while you maneuver. Necrons are tough but weapons that ignore our Asaves still rip us down (and many of them tend to ignore WB it's still important to use terrain to your advantage.

    The only way to find out if your list is good is to go out and run it a few times. Maybe with and without suggested changes. Good luck Archlord101

    Remember SHOOTING weapons negating armor saves do NOT negate WBB! Only no save CC weaponry or double toughness. Example: a lascannon will negate warriors because of double toughness, but NOT negate WBB for destroyers and immortals because it's not double toughness and AP2 does negate armor save, but does not apply to WBB.

    Dark, my point was that most AP3 weapons are high enough strength to punch through WBB as well. (Missle-launchers/battlecannons come to mind.) so :p

    I know you know, just stating for some unsuspecting person who reads into it

    But it's just important because I didn't pay attention to that side of it for a LONG time, and my destroyers were going down far too easily!

    It's definitely a friendly list that way. You 'might' even consider just 2 squads of warriors in place of getting another 3 destroyer squad. 6 Destroyers would be lethal, but it's your call.

    Hmm, that is definately tempting. I mean sure, you could only hold 2 objectives, but it would be easy to contest the rest with 3 fast attack options, also added destroyer survivability is awesome. With only 20 warriors, a lord and 6 Destroyers being necrons though you would have a phase out of 6. Risky, but if you kill the enemy dead very quickly then it won't matter.

    I really do like the list he's got right now, run it and see how it does.

    I almost always take only 2x10 Warriors. Holding two objectives is usually plenty. In fact, quite often, holding only one objective can be enough. Immortals and Destroyers are just so much better, though, so I usually minimize my Warrior-count to maximize them.
