    [1000] "Quickstart" Army

    Well, I'm making this 1000 point list as a "starter" army, so I will have something to play with while I try to buy 10x Pariahs and 10x Flayed Ones... keep in mind, I'm using only the models from my 1850 "Fear" army, so, here goes:

    HQ

    [1] Lord
    +Resurrection Orb
    +Nightmare Shroud
    +Gaze of Flame
    =185 points

    Troops

    [10] Warriors
    =180 points

    [10] Warriors
    =180 points

    [10] Warriors
    =180 points

    Fast Attack

    [3] Destroyers
    =150 points

    [3] Wraiths
    =123 points

    Total Points: 998
    Total Models: 37
    Phase Out: @9 [Kill 28]

    Opinions appreciated, but I can't get too much more flexible on the models themselves... actually, everything has to be kept pretty much the same. The most I can do is split the Wraiths up, to have an extra scoring unit to go and capture objectives (and hopefully be ignored by the enemy, if I keep it out of the way - nobody will hunt a single Wraith over thirty Warriors).

    Great list!

    The only thing I would suggest is giving the lord a warscythe so he can hold his own if other HQs go after him.

    Very solid otherwise, it should serve you well.

    The plan is, if another HQ even gets near the Lord... he'll be shot up by 30 Warriors.

    I don't plan on letting my Lord in CC, unless he absolutely must - and, if that's the case, I think a standard power weapon (Staff of Light) should deal rather well.

    The last battle I had (500 points) against my dad's Space Marines, the Staff of Light was wonderful. I hit all three times, and wounded all three times, which means three Space Marines went splat - because of the Lord's shooting phase. It was pretty nifty, and can really come in handy.

    I expect trouble against AP2 and lots of vehicles, but that's normal.

    Plan is, if I split the Wraiths up, two of them will act as support for the rest of the army while one of them turbo boosts away to grab an objective, staying out of LOS as much as possible. All that lone Wraith has to do, even, is stop the enemy from taking points for an objectives.

    The Lord will stick with the Warriors mainly, advancing or holding as is needed and making sure they stand back up - also, a counter-charge unit if one is needed.

    The Destroyers will, of course, be there for their high volumes of fire. The only difference in that strategy that will happen is if the enemy brings vehicles - then, it will be the Destroyers' jobs to take the vehicles out with their reasonable strength and high amount of Gauss shots.

    Looks and sounds good to me man.

    It'd be nice if you had in some of your scary units in there so you can get used to them a bit, but as this is what you're going to be using because you don't have those models that is a bit out of the question...

    What happened to the Heavy Destroyers? I thought you were planning on converting them from normal Destroyers? That way you could have the Wraiths seperate, letting them cause much more havock.
    Admittedly, the way you've set the plan out would imply that you're relying on weight of fire and gauss to take down 2+ or vehicles, which kinda removes the point of Heavy Destroyers.

    Good list man.
    :yes:

    Eh, the Heavy Destroyers were alright, but the list suffers from a lack of firepower to begin with, IMO. The normal Destroyers will help fill that gap, and are suitable to take out many enemies - not just tanks with their Gauss, or 2+ saves, and they might (maybe) kill more than one model at a time, which the H. Destroyers couldn't do.

    Plus, it saves me a lot of work, and this new list saves me cash.

    Also, I just (kinda) remembered that this is a 1k list, so anyone bringing 2+ saves or armour 14 to a game is probably going to be seriously outnumbered, even by 'crons, so weight of fire should be enough.

    Looks like a solid list. Not much to say besides consider giving the Necron Lord VoD instead of Nightmare Shroud and Gaze of Flame.

    It's a good move, sure, but it doesn't fit in the theme with the army - which, really, the rest of the army doesn't hit off with very well due to the lack of the three main additions (Pariahs, Flayed Ones, and the Deceiver). However, I'd rather keep that Lord with those Warriors, instead of teleporting one of those squads around and leaving the others to get instakilled, etc. without his Orb there.
