Welcome to Librarium Online!
I used to play Necron before I found the joy of the Chaos gift...
I can't sleep, so I figure I'll write out another army for my bro who's deciding what he wants to play.
Let me know what you think:
Lord - Res. Orb and Veil of Darkness. (200)
10 Immortals (280)
10 Warriors (180)
11 Warriors (198 )
3 Destroyers (150)
4 Destroyers (200)
3 Heavy Destroyers (195)
Should be 1,998 after all is said and done.
Basically, I split the tactics in three.
1 - Right up the middle - Monolith, Warriors and Nightbringer go right up in the opponent's face. The C'Tan and 'Lith taking HEAVY fire (and surviving most often). 'Bringer gets into CC and it's all over for anything close, Warriors with tons of 'Lith survivability.
2 - Flanking and Speed - 10 Destroyers in total - 3 being heavy. I should be able to successfully deal with all the heavy weapons being levelled at my 'Lith in a few turns, and if the 'Lith has survived that long, then it will last the whole game.
3 - Veil of Terror - Lord + Immortals Deep Strike behind the vulnerables and wreak havoc in a timely manner.
What do you think, oh wise and sagely council of online geniuses?
"Long live the Emperor!"

I have see some good necron armies but your really does pack a punch. Though i would keep a close eye out for any squads with meltabombs or haywire grenades, but apart from that nice one.
Ian M ON THE BATTLEFIELD THERE IS BUT ONE COMMAND MENT THOU SHALL KILL!!!!!!!!
Umm personally i dont think you have enough warriors. You have 2 really expensive units (c'tan and lith) that do nothing for your phase out. In a 2000pt game you really should be looking at nearly twice as many warriors as what you have. Heavy destroyers arent really going to be that useful, and 200pts is alot of points for jsut 3 shots a turn. I would spend those points on another 10-11 warriors or so. Now as much as you have a monolith to re-roll WBB, if the lith and the ctan are taken out early on, thats alot of points wasted that did nothing for your PO. So apart from the lack of warriors and the inclusion of HD's, i would say its a good list
But without some HD what would you use to kill something like a hive tyrant, which at 2000pts your sure to see in a nid army?
Heavy destroyers are almost never needed. Sure some armies can have alot of 2+ saves, but theres no guarantee that just because you take a heavy destroyer its going to die. I would much rather take 4 normal destroyers over 3 heavies. They are far more verstaile and with 12 shots over the 3, you are bound to cause at least 1 wound like the heavies would
I agree with Exodus using destroyers than HD. Not only would u give at least a wound or 2 to terms or tyrants etc... "depends on how ur opponent is rolling" but when shooting at vehicels with 4 destroyers ur looking at 12 shots 7 to 8 hits and a least 2 "6" glancing hits maybe more. With 3 HD their 5pts less than 4 destroyers have same range and have 3 Lascannon shots. Out of those 3 shots u have about 2 hits and maybe 1 glancing or penetrating hit depending on Armour value. To me HD aren't worth it, I rather have the 1 or 2 glancing hits than hope to get 1 penetrating. Alot of glancing hits = vehicel destroyed!
