Okay, so I am totally new to Necrons and 40K, but am starting to get down the rules. I started necrons, because, well... come on, they are metal undead. I am trying to build a 1500 pt army, as that is what is customary for the people around here to play. Usual opponents are SM, IG, eldar, and occasional Nids.
1 lord w/ res orb and dbody
1 tomb spyder
a grand total of 1500 pts
I know i have no scarab swarms for assault prevention, but I have a pretty decent phase out, and the 10 destroyers should give me some cover fire as my warriors move towards objectives, with the tomb spyder and monolith supporting the warriors.
Alternatively (and probably just being crazy) I was thinking about going unconventional.
1 lord w/ res orb and destroyer body
again, 1500 pts, a much lower PO, but the firepower of two monoliths... I don't know how feasible it would be, but I think the look on opponents faces would be more priceless.

Heya Templar147, Welcome to LO! And welcome to the Necrons forum.
I must admit that I really like your list. Tons of firepower, plenty of troops, a nice tough HQ choice (though it's a toss up between destroyer body and phase shifter). And you even kept room for a tomb spyder!
I wonder if you shouldn't drop two destroyers for another spyder and some scrabs or something? Get a bit more anti-charge in that lineup
Second list I'm not as much a fan of, dual-mono isn't something I'm that big on, though I understand it is very effective in most games.
ALSO please don't post exact points cost, run over check the rules, you'll last longer.
well your 1st again Alzer lol
anyway your 1st seems to be the strongest as a smart player will just get both your Warrs into CC and phase ya
I agree with Alzer in dropping both Des squads down to 4 each, having some extra counter CC is a good trade-off, and since most of your army is footslogging id replace Dbdy with a Phase, unless you were tagging him with the Destroyers?
All in all have fun and above all Harvest Those Cattle For Our Masters
also i think its ok to post total values not individual ones
There is no "I" in "team", there is an "I" in "pie" however, as in "Meat Pie" with "Meat" being an anogram of "Team".
