Overlord - 150
Lord - 70
Gauntlet of fire
5 Lychguard - 225 Hp sword and Dsheild
15 necron warriors - 195
5 necron warriors - 65
ghost ark - 115
Canoptek Scarabs 90
Annialation Barge with tessla cannon - 90
total 1000 points
This is my first attempt at a necron army list. Currently it is just for fun but in the future would be partaking competitively. In a few weeks i will be starting a campaign at my local club with 500 points from the go and then rising to apoc. level
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Ideas so far -
Overlord with large warrior squad, basically the brick unit with large fire and maneuverability.
5 man warrior squad in reserve to hop on and grab close objectives.
ghost ark - to replenish warrior squads / stop them fleeing off the board, also can transport the 5 man squad late game to an objective
lychguard with necron lord - hard hitting combat unit, mainly to take out opponents mid Armored units and to draw fire. ( i.e eldar dark reapers) Necron lord with res orb to hopefully keep them a bit more alive.
Annihilation Barge- Basically just to follow up the main unit to provide close support fire
Scarabs - used as an anti tank unit even if they dont destroy it the armour knockdown will allow for the necron unit to shoot them down.
okay list, just some minor flaws
increase the size of the the five man warrior squad and place them in the ghost ark for support instead of reserve
drop the lychguard, you dont need them in a 1000 point game
if you drop the guard than drop the orb lord as well unless you place him with the other warriors
give your overlord mindschacklescarabs
scarabs are fine
you will want another annihilation barge
best of luck
I was a bit iffy on the lychguard to start with, they seem good but are more points than terminators... it seems a bit excessive. But the models look really cool...
TBH, i dont like the ghost ark in this game, in this points level. 115 for a transport is huge, and its your only vehicle. Granted it is AV 13, but it is open topped, meaning that every anti tank the enemy has is going for it turn one meaning it will most likely die before doing anything significant. Since mobility will then be a problem i would think about a Veil Tek. the LG can be pretty usefull in 1k, but they may prove to be to expensive for you. i would suggest having some sort of counter assault unit though. i would do something as such:
Overlord w/Scythe, Orb, Phaeron: 150 (goes with Warriors)
Veiltek: 60 (goes with Warriors)
Lord w/Gaunt and Orb-70 (goes with LG)
5 Lychguard w/S&B - 225
15 Necron warriors - 195
7 Tesla Immortals: 119
6 Canoptek Scarabs 90
Annialation Barge w/tesla-90
total 999 points
Alternatively, you could give the Olord and lord a sword, and give one of them mindshackle scarabs.
as for the Immortals, If you wish to move em about, tesla is the way to go, if you're going to camp an objective go gauss as you can still fire 24" and bring the pain when things get close.
Ive taken the cryptek idea, At 1000 points how useful will the scarabs be, as i doubt ill get any spiders till they get new moddels released which i know are great for scarab farms. Just because i removed them in a new army list to make point space, also I Wont use immortals, mostly due to money but over time when i get back into playing they look like a good choice
