Alrighty guys, im a little new with crons, so heres my list. Please give advice on what i should add and take away. this is my 1500 pts list... and basiclly everything i own cron related.
3 squads of warriors
12 each squad
1 destroyer lord with veil
9 scarab swarms with distruption fields
everything else i own is below
4 flayed ones
HELP! i dont know which way i want this army to go! i dont know the ways it can go! please give me advice!
heres what i usually do with this army
i put out two sqauds of warriors, one usually behind concrete cover so i dont phase out
ill put the wraith out there as a quick assualter, getting into close combat with anything that shoots and keeping them distracted for a turn. i seem to always put my nightbringer too far away from the action, cause he holds the entire flank by himself, but besides that he odes basciclly nothing.
ill put my destroyer lord and destroyer together, and have them VOD behind enemy lines, usually near artillery or light skimmers ( sometimes i put them near heavy tanks sometimes cause after 9 shots ill usually land at least one 6 to distrupt them or even "in some occasions" desstroy em' "
ill wait two turns, pray to god i get deepstrike, and put in the monolith right in the enemy lines. ill put in my reserve warrior squad and use the flux cannons to bring down dem enemy troops. then ill vod my spiders behind tanks and use the ones that survive to kill the tanks
so anyway! any advice is good advice guys, dont be shy!
Right, well you don't even have enough flayed ones for a unit, so a CC army is out really.
The nightbringer can be left at home at the moment as he is a bit pointless in a shooty army.
Here's a quick one I threw together-
Lord - destroyer body, res orb, lightning field, warscythe 195
Lord - res orb, phase shifter 170
12 warriors 216
12 warriors 216
11 warriors 198
3 Destroyers 150
9 scarab swarms 120
Phase out 10
The foot lord hold your warriors together.
The destroyer lord joins the scarabs and is your CC unit, the lightning field means they do not go down without a fight and the lord's warscythe means he can cut his way through a fair bit himself.
The destroyers provide some long range firepower while your warriors aim to get within rapid fire range.
The monolith is an nice anchor, it can either DS and cause havoc in the enemies lines (hopefully making the destroyer lord's life easier) or follow the warriors with some WBB enhancing aid.
isint the warscythe and the staff of light the same deal in close combat?
all the warscythe gives ya is no invulerable and tank killer.
The warscythe is better than the SoL in CC because it ignores all saves, not just armour.Originally Posted by AlbinoAlien
Since D lords actually may assault something they need all the help they can get, thus the warscythe is a better choice.
They don't miss the shooting attack nearly as much as foot lords do.
MORE WARRIORS, thats the key to your army
You knock 'em down, and they come right back up again ..... NECRONS
35 is plenty at 1500.
I say get at least another destroyer, since they seem to work best in squads of 4 (its the best amount for maximum damage / minimum points).
