    2000 point close combat necrons, a first!

    Close combat necron list - cheesy? is it going to work? is it a good idea? any thoughts?

    Lords join the flayed ones and help with cc. All thier upgrades are blose combat helpers. Veil of darkness is just to speed things up get close or pick out units.

    warriors just move up and shoot stuff while advancing, rapid fire the crud out of guys then join the fray.

    scarabs provide fire shield for wraiths and double as tank hunters,

    wraiths nuff said, they do what they do

    monolith just floats around wreaking havoc and supporting troops with portal and such.

    52 necrons, phase out at 13 which is not a bad number. considering i have 20 warriors. Flayed ones cost the same as warriors so...and int 4 with 2 attacks and great special rules.

    Well the glaring problem is that competitive play rarely lets you move onto a 2nd FoC in a 2k point game. Otherwise there would be armies everywhere with 6 HS.

    The other one is that you don't have enough troops choices to make up 2 FoC's.

    The list looks good (hope the wraiths don't get gunned down) but it breaks to many rules.

    If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.

    I have 3000pt list just like this but you should only have 1 FoC unless 2500+ points. I would suggest dropping the Scarabs and 2 of the Wraiths to buy another 2 warrior squads and taking only one lord W/Res orb veil of darkness and a war scythe. otherwise it a great list because of the necrons ability to stand back up after getting killed.

    One problem is that you have 6 fast attacks. Drop the Mono if you really want a CC necron army you need some tomb sypders! They are pretty great in most cases.

    Don't get discouraged its a good list you just need 2 more troops choices somehow as you need 4 troops for 2 FoC's.
