New list ive been fiddling round with, been "sorta" succesfull (But mind you ive been practicing on 2 lash prince lists /damn my friends) but the one thing ive found to alwasy be true is the power of destroyers.
9x scarab w/ Dfields
comes out at 1499 with a P/O of 8.25
Now I know one glaring weakness is low amount of troops, but man are they bad... someone sneezes the word assult and they get run over.
The goal now is to hide them in cover (where objectives are placed) and keepen em spread out so those stinking ordance dosent bother them as much, their only goal is to (by turn 5) be on objectives, till then I dont really have a use for em.
Any opinions would be great, thanks for reading guys.
Well depending on the mission being played, I would strongly suggest a third squad of warriors, this is something I've been meaning to do with my 1.5k list.
D-fields on scarabs is not a good use for your points, especially with the amount of fire your destroyers produce.
Heavy destroyers are unfortunately inaccurate, though having 3 will increase your chances of a kill, once enemy vehicles/MCs are down there is little use for them. Perhaps drop one?
My overall advice is to drop the d-fields, a heavy destroyer, and a standard destroyer from each squad. This will give you the points to field a third warrior squad.
Admittedly Necron warriors don't take assaults very well, just work on positioning them and use your scarabs to screen enemy combat units. Also a squad of necrons in cover is an absolute pain to take out, especially if they have a res-orb nearby and some friendly units to stall up assaults.
I understand the value of troops, and 100% agree with the 3-4th squad being needed in a 2k point game, but in a 1.5 when your not babysitting all 3 squads with an orb/mono/combination, im just not sure if they have the value.
And I know the problems with HDestros, I cant stand usen em to be honest, they always feel like apoint sink, I like to have em around mostly for HQ/termie killen till they get in range of a vehcile, I just alwasy feel bad wasting a full squad of destros shot and getting 2 glances, so its a mixed feeling with em.
I guessim still trying to find a good place for warriors at 1.5k, new codex please come soon!!!!
I actually tried a diffrent list after your mention of more troops, and crushed my friends SOBs
1 Lord Rez/Viel/Sythe
30 Warr (3 of 10)
Comes out to less than 1500
I got go to second, so i deployed somthing like this:
(MONO) s s s s s s s s s
w w w w w w w w w w
w w w w w w w w w w (4destro)(4destro)
somthing like that with the mono in the center that way I crushed one half of his line before he could respond with both sides, then it was simply killing each squad left on his team one by one, i actually only lost 3 necrons and the scarab squad the entire game.
