Today i played in my very first tournament of 1500 pts.
i used the army and strategy below
1 lord w/ resorb, and GoF
2x2 heavy destroyers
6 flayed ones
Flayed ones and lord spear head attack while destroyers and heavies clear bigger more annoying things
the first match i played against CSM. The very first turn my heavies were able to wreck his predator. The most amazing thing i had happen to me was the first battle and that was NOT having the flayed ones infiltrate or deepstrike. instead, they and the lord sat 18 inches away from the lith. They had there deamon prince get into battle with the flayed ones. they were able to get 1 wound on him when he assaulted. He was able to take out a couple of my guys during his. the next turn the lith moved 6" closer and tp'ed the flayed and lords out of cc allowing ALL of them to return. 2 heavies fired at the demon, 1 more wound out, the lord fired his SoL, nothing, and then i re-assaulted him taking out his last 2 wound with the lord and his personal gaurd. the flayed ones and lord stuck around and did a little more damage bafore being moraled off the board. . during the same tun i took down his prince, i had also taken down his Khorne. yes i am very happy to say that this list took down his prince and khorne by turn 2 before they killed even one unit, plus some more of his troops. khorne was taken out by the both the destroyers and the second pair of destroyers and also more warriors. the reason i would have to say i ended up loosing was because i simply forgot to shoot his late rhino he had returned back to retrieve more guys, which they then began causing many target problems.
The next thing i noticed was that i don't think i have enough infantry kill in this list. any opinions would be very much appreciated.
(NECRONS KICK @$$) best game ever btw!

Khorne what exactly? Are we talking berserkers?
Necrons can tend to struggle against other heavy infantry, our lack of wide-spread ap3 or lower weapons leaves us at a bit of a disadvantage. Next time try to throw the monolith's Particle whip at a squad or two and see how that fares!
Was it an objective battle? That could really make leaving the rhino alive a pain, hit those with a volley from your destroyers if they give you problems, they will go away.
Killed a DP with some flayed ones and a Lord? Well played sir, that is awesome.
And good job getting that predator out of the way, what else did he have for anti tank? (a copy of your opponents list would be nice to have).
my mistake, it was a prince and Kharn. those where the two he used and i killed in the first 2 turns. and yes, all except 1 of his troops where those berserkers, i think 4 squads. he also had 2 obliterators a rhino, predator, and then one squad had ap3 str4 weapons and a psyker.
yea it was an objective battle but he beat me due to phase out it just became an all out war..) i dunno many strategies for necron objective cause i always try and keep my guys together...
any suggestions that u think would make it run better? the aggresive factor seems to really kill me so, i wanna run things into their guys to make em slow down. the flayed ones were really good at blocking em. but i need something more... i was thinking of loosing 1 heavy and bringing them to a squad of 3. 4 just seems to much, and 2 is to little. keep as a squad of 3 or 2 squads of 1 and 2?
