    Necrons 1000pts New to Necrons

    Headquarters:

    Lord - 150
    -Ressurection Orb
    -Either Chronometron and Staff of Light/WarScythe, torn between the two right now
    ~Joins one of the Warrior Squads

    Troops:

    Warriors - 180
    -10 Warriors

    Warriors - 180
    -10 Warriors

    Warriors - 180
    -10 Warriors

    Fast Attack:

    Destroyers - 150
    -3 Destroyers

    Scarab Swarms - 80
    -5 Swarms w/ Disruption Field

    Scarab Swarms - 80
    -5 Swarms w/ Disruption Field

    Well, as an Anniversary Gift, I gave my Witch Hunters w/ Space Marine Allies to my wife, and now I am starting a new army. I like the Necrons, they are something new to me, and Will have one box of warriors, a lord, and a battle force to start my army with. Here is what I am looking at now using my actual models to start with. I admit I do not know much, outside of that I hate Scarabs w/ Disruption Fields glancing my vehicles to death over and over. I thank you for your time, and please suggest anything you think will work, although I am stuck here until next paycheck.

    -Trevor

    Hey Trevor the Drake, welcome to the Necron Tomb!

    On the Lord, I'd give both of those pieces of wargear a shot, see which one is more useful. Warscythe is generally most effective against characters, vehicles, and terminators. Chronometron helps you run away, though most days it still won't save you from sweeping advance, (2 initiative is not a good starting point for this).

    I'd look into getting more destroyers, they are the Necron's powerhouse unit, most of your killing will be their job. I suggest if you use a specialist Necron unit, (anything other than immortals/warriors) take two squads, and keep them within 6" of each other to support WBB, this also gives you flexibility for firing angles.

    At 1k three squads of warriors are unnecessary. Usually having 1 squad of troops for 500 points is enough, Warriors don't have the stopping power of most other Necron units, so try to keep a low count of them, but not so low that your phase out, or ability to capture objectives, suffers.

    D-field scarabs are decidedly a useful vehicle killing unit, they do compete with destroyers for fast attack slots though.

    Close combat is a really really rough place for Necrons to be, preventative measures are best taken so your units don't get crushed. Preventative measures include:
    1. Tomb Spyders.
    2. Not being around to charge (Monoliths/Veil of Darkness)
    3. Tomb Spyders.

    I'd look at removing a squad of warriors, swap in a second squad of destroyers, also cut some scarabs (or just make one big SUPER squad) and add a couple spyders in there to keep assault elements of your enemy's army out of your squishy parts (aka warriors).
