Welcome to Librarium Online!
So I'm trying to build a melee army, for the lulz mostly. I understand shooter armies win, but I already have a tau of doom army. If there is any way to make it somewhat competative, that would be cool, but otherwise anything to make it fun to play in friendly games.
HQ - 1x Necron Lord w/Res Orb, Veil of Darkness, Warscythe
Troop - 3x Warriors Squad (10)
Elite - 2x Flayed Ones (
Heavy Support - 1x Monolith (deep strike style)
Fast Attack - 2x Wraith Squad (3)
Point would be drop, hold 1 war squad in reserve. The Lord would roll right next to the flayed ones with the wraiths nearby. After deployment the Monolith would drop in and start wreaking house. That's about it.
Sounds fun to me really. Very impact heavy. Though personally I'd take a Wraithlord instead of a veil lord, harder to loose with bad rolls. (Wraithlord : Res orb, Destroyer body, phase shifter, potentially warscythe)
By the way you shouldn't normally need a warscythe against tau, maybe vs. vehicles but wraiths will sort those neatly.
Careful with the Monolith, Railguns will ruin it's day like you couldn't possibly imagine. Or maybe you could, you seem to face tau every so often >>.
Either way, best of luck!
Yeah Lord with D Body, Warscythe Lightning Field and Scarabs is good. Wraiths and more scarabs set a very fast pace. You could run a second Lord with a Veil to DS in and give close fire support. It'd be a very fun army to play, so many things could Turbo Boost or redeploy.
