Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm new to 40K, and I ended up choosing Necrons and ordering a Battleforce and a Lord. A few friends who play gave me 4 flayed ones and a tomb spyder, and out of these I've got a 1000 point army. My issue is that a lot of the people I'm going to be playing with field a lot of armor, and looking through the codex, I don't see much besides Heavy Destroyers that can kill a tank. After reading a few of the threads here, it seems like people really don't use them alot. Is there a reliable way to kill a tank with the units I have?
Thanks in advance,
You can take out tanks with near enough everything in your army. Read the special rules for Gauss weapons in your codex and you'll see what im talking about.

Almost ever weapon necrons have can glance any tank! It is great! Or scarabs with D-fields.
Thanks, I hadn't really thought about it like that.
First! I'd like to welcome you to this Forum! Second, Guass(weapons carried by your Warriors) inflict glancing hits on 6's. Many player carry nothin but warriors, to weigh armies down by numbers, and to hold off Phase Out.
Necrons by the way, benefit more from larger games. This allows them to effectively use the more powerful units in their arsenal, namely the Monolith and C'tan.

That is true aboutthe larger games, but I have a great time from 500-1000 points. Granted you can't do much at 500 points, I usually come out on top.
Since you already have some Flayed Ones, I think that you should aim for a fear army. I've heard that they're great.

Fear army eh? I like the sound of that. What exactly is it?
Basically, you combine the elements of the codex (units, wargear, tactics) which have a negative effect on enemy leadership and you maximise on them. Things like pariahs, Flayed ones, Veil of Terror etc etc.
Then you can watch the enemy army effectively fold into itself.
Be warned though.. a fearless death guard army or a nid army will laugh at you as your tactics have no effect upon them.
It's great to have elements of that in, but don't do so to the point that you can't win another way.

Always make sure your army has the ability to act to the fullest in all 3 Main Phases of the game (movement, shooting, assault), and never, ever have a list that needs a certain situation to win (like using an army that isn't effective against Fearless troops, because there happen to be a lot of them).
Time to get down to actual army creation, something I was hoping people here could help with. Here's the list I came up with:
Necron Lord w/Phylactery, Disruption Field, and Rez Orb-160 Points
4 Flayed Ones w/Disruption Fields-84 Points
12 Warriors-216 Points
12 Warriors-216 Points
3 Destroyers-150 Points
7 Scarab Swarms w/Disruption Fields-112 Points
1 Tomb Spyder-55 Points
Total Cost: 997 Points
Reading through the various threads, I noticed that there were mixed feelings about tomb spyders. I'm mainly putting it in for the WBB rolls, and I've heard it helps if the warriors get into CC as it can do some nice damage, but other things say it's useless. Any input on that would be nice, as I could pick up 3 more warriors or some nice wargear for that cost.
My basic attack plan is to move the warriors forward Phalanx style and kill anything that comes near them. The scarabs are going to get to the enemy as fast as they can and tie up the heavier vehicles, hopefully destroying a few due to the D-Fields. I'll move destroyers up on the flank and use them to shoot the hell out of lighter vehicles to slow the enemy down. The tomb spyder is going to stay in the phalanx with the warriors to aid WBB, and kill things if necessary. My lord will stay near the warriors for the rez orb so I have less chance of phasing out. Finally, I'm going to deepstrike my Flayed Ones early and try to kill any heavy weapons squads or other artillery that my opponent could use to kill me from a distance. Any major weaknesses in this strategy?
Finally, I'd like to know where to go from here. I hear excellent things about wraiths, and for their cost they might be good for killing high profile targets like psykers. I'm going for 1000 points at this point in time, so I don't think a monolith would be all that useful, but I have no clue. Any help that anyone can give me would be much appreciated.
