Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey fellow Overlords i have finally got necron on the road and I figured i would plan ahead with a starters list for my first few games before even thinking about the 1000 points level.
So here my first attempt at a 500pt army which i have all the models for.
HQ – Overlord Barridul
Wargear – Phaeron, Warscythe, Resurrection orb - 150
Troops 1 – 10 Warriors - 130
Troops 2 – 5 Immortals - 85
Fast Attack – 3 Scarab swarms - 45
Heavy support 1 – Annihilation Barge
Total - 500pts.
Modals – 18
Vehicles - 1
There we have it a small list but a start non the less. I put this balanced list together to basically able to fight all armies and As my experance is lacking the now for Necrons. If anyones got comments or advice about necrons at 500pts i would apperiate it.
P.S. i have 2 necron warriors models spare thats it for now.
hey man , yeh that sounds alright to me! i would personal scrap the 3 scarab swarms, the res orb and the annihilation barge and replace it with 2 crypteks ( Harbingers of Destruction,) change the unit of 10 warriors to 9 and add a night scythe.
Overlord + Phaeron+ Warsythe
Cryptek H o Des
Cryptek H o Des
Warriors x 9
Immortals x 5
Night scythes are pretty much barges but can transport troops and move supersonic.
Necrons range is what kills them for me so having a vehicle that can get your units in range to rapid fire and assault because of the phaeron special rule is great.
Your list is good so far. I think you should loose the scarabs though. For 500pts, your not going to really run into any vehicles, money better spent elsewhere i think. in larger games, a good swarm of scarabs are useful.
