Hey everyone. After lots of looking around and asking many many questions I have come up with this little army. I was thinking about buying the standard box set to give me some warriors, destroyers etc.
This list basically includes all of the units that I love, this isn;t to say I don't love all of the other units!.
Necron Lord with res orb 140
3*10 Warriors squads 540
3* Destroyers 150
3* Tomb Spyders 165
Total 995, P/O 8
What do you think??? There doesn't seem to be too much play with a necron army. I might add a immortal squad and give the lord VoD for expansion to 1500. Any advice on how to make this better would be greatly appreachiated.
I have the idea about necrons that you have to dedicate yourself to take more than one unit for things to be effective. Having only one squad of destroyers is pretty dull because if the squad dies, there will be no extra save. I say that you should discard a squad of warriors and maybe one tomb spyder for more destroyers. Or skip the destroyers for more warriors. Or some more tomb spyders. Just don't have one squad of destroyers.
For 1500 pts, you could add some more destroyers. I think 2 squads of 4 should run pretty well. Maybe some extra tomb spyders. Or a monolith.
For 1000 pts
1 orb lord + some defensive 15 pts wargear
3 tomb spyders
1 orb lord
5 tomb spyders
And you've got 9 pts left to play with.
For 1500 pts:
2 tomb spyders
You said you wanted immortals as well, right? They rock!
But, my personal choice would be a monolith.
orblord + 25 pts fun wargear
3 tomb spyders
And i wrote all of this just for fun, maybe to convince myself of buying destroyers instead of wraiths.
The second list may be a bit low on necrons, but i've never cared about that
You may have just twisted my arm, not much force needed there though. I love the idea of your second list. I think i'll run with it, if you don't mind of course.
One thing I wondered was if the orblord was attached to the middle of 3 warrior units does the orb work for the other 2 units if there are within 6"???
I just did a quick bit of math and i've come around to the idea of a monolith. If i worked it out correctly a basic bolter equiped space marine has 9% chance of killing a necron. Given the chances to hit, wound, WBB and re-roll WBB from the lith. Im getting one
Feel free to steal my ideas
Yes, the lord gives every necron unit within 6" the bonus.
And the monolith is funny. I've got a 1000 pts list for it as well.
7 scarab swarms.
The scarabs could be exanged for a tomb spyder or some extra warriors.
