Welcome to Librarium Online!
My list for a few friendly games between mates:
Necron Lord w/
TOTAL - 746pts
Great list! I would change one thing though, lose the scarabs and give the lord a phase shifter, it helps him survive railgun attacks and the likes of power weapon toting nastys (Chaplin anyone?).
Hmm ... is the phase shifter the wargear that gives you a 4+ inv. save? I'm not realy interested in that ...
and I think for the scarabs I will just test them out and see how they go ... if I think they are a waste then I will change them ... immediatley!
Anyhoo, thanks for the help guys.
Keep it coming,
How can you not want a 4+ inv. save? to each their own I guess....
Otherwise I would invest the points freed up by the scarabs by giving the lord phlacetry and as many warriors you can fit.
Scarabs are useful but at 750 points there are better things (such as the forementioned phase shifter and more warriors).
Ok, I don't dislike the phase shifter it's just I dont think its necessary in such a low point game ... if it was a 1000pts then I would take it but I dont think I will be facing too many Railguns in this point game
Its more for the power weapons, you don't want a SM chaplin/Eldar phoenix lord etc cutting your 150 point lord in half and then massacaring a warrior squad, I never leave the tomb without one on my lord.
Hmm... maybe I should take one then b/c I'll definitely be facing a couple of chaplains! I thought the scarabs might soak up some shots for at least a couple of turns though ... giving my warriors a chance to get within rapid fire range and my lord to engage in close combat
Scarabs never absorb fire unless they are the only thing in range, bolters melt them and ass. cannon can destroy 4 bases a turn!
The shifter is a much better choice. Don't use the lord to engage combat, keep him with the squads and let the enemy come to you (unless facing nids), he is much better served being a counter attacker for things that charge you, he is job is to keep the warriors out of combat and alive at all costs.
So my list shall look something like this:
Necron Lord w/
TOTAL - 740pts
