    How to crush imperial guard?

    I need a list to crush imperial guard at 1500 points, I know the guys has:
    2 leman russes
    ogryn he apperently hates
    Storm troopers he loves
    alot of men *apperently 55 in each platoon, i doubt he has that many*
    possibly more

    He is a total noob (thinks he is better in CC than necrons, thinks flamers and auto cannons will hurt me alot, storm troopers will own immortals, that a storm trooper squad with a power fist is a big danger to my forces) and he is acting extremely as such telling me my models are crappy, my painting sucks...

    Me I have:
    a Monolith
    a Tomb Spider
    3 H-D
    15 Destroyers
    30 Immortals
    60 Warriors
    30 Scarab Swarms
    1 Destroyer Lord
    3 Necron Lords
    alot of necron warriors without arms

    TheEnd

    Dude, ya got a LOT of stuff. I recommend:

    1 Necron Lord w/ res orb

    1 monolith

    10x warriors
    10x warriors

    10x immortals

    5x destroyers
    5x destroyers

    3x heavy destroyers

    This is more of a "fun list". The destroyers and immortals will eat his troops alive. If ya don't wanna use the heavy destroyers for his tanks, then switch those out with another Lord with a res orb, and you'll have 25pts left for other gear.

    May the Harvest go well, my friend.

    Wouldn't it be better to have immortals than destroyers? no AS still wound on 2+ and nothnig has so many wounds I need ID and i get more models so more shots and higher phase out, for H-D I dunno they could be usefull but I don't like their point cost. I'll probaly take them tho,

    so Immortals or destroyers?

    That's a 1710pt list in a 1500pt game. No go.

    I would love to put a Monolith in so I could DS it into the IG DZ to get off a ton of Gauss Arc shots and teleport your troops out of CC so you can blast him some more. But it is likely he'll try to take it out quick(which can be good for you if he continually fails) and if you does, there goes a sixth of your points.

    Immortals are nice, but they're expensive. One squad should be sufficient. Necrons can be mobile, use this advantage.

    Lord w/VoD/RO - 200pts

    Immortalsx10 - 280pts

    (2) Warriorsx14 - 504pts

    Destroyersx4 - 200pts

    Scarabsx10 - 120pts

    (3) hDestroyers - 195pts

    Cost: 1499pts
    "Necrons": 46
    PO: 11

    Tactics:
    1. VoD those Immortals around for good firing positions(cover except for the unit they are shooting at) on choice targets.
    2. Destroyers can the opposite side of the field the Immortals occupy and wreck things there.
    3. Scarabs!! These will generally piss off your opponent. With 30 wounds and 40 attacks on the charge, this could really do some damage as well as act as a tarpit, keeping more of his firepower out of the fight.
    4. hDestroyers: this is very important!! These guys will be dealing with armor, plain and simple. DO NOT DEPLOY THEM AS ONE SQUAD!!! Deploy them as 3 squads(because of their great movement, this can be done across a lot of your DZ to mislead your opponent) of 1 unit and fly them in proximity of each other for WBB purposes. This means (a) they don't have to be bunched together(blast avoidance), (b) they can fire on 3 seperate targets(or not, if the opportunity isn't present), and (c) your enemy must devote 3 of his own units to target each hDestroyer if he wants to attempt wiping them out in one turn(to prevent WB.

    That's a nice list, a bit one-dimensional, but nice. But it would seem slow. IG will have you out ranged and you need to get in his face quick. That phalanx screams, "drop pie plates on me!" You may not want to escalate any cheese war either. Bring a balanced list and really out play him.

    Army lists go in the Army Lists subforum. Keep that in mind in the future, please.

    Sorry for double post
    I think it might be an easy win, since I know the necron codex by heart, everythnig except the name of wargear for necron lords, but apart from that i nkow the stats an point cost of everything. I know very well the stats of the imprrial guard codex (I own it) and he says he played necron as his first army and doesn't know anything about them tho... And i nkow more about his codex than he does *today he asked me if lasgun were still rapid fire, and he tougth hellguns were assault 3*... go figure...

    and thinking more about the Immortal list, might use it as my normal list, it's soo cooool!!!

    Oh, crap! My bad on that list before, inadvertently put down the 5x destroyers twice. Also forgot to add that this would be 1430pts, giving you 70pts to play with. I'd go with a VoD so you could veil around those Immortals.
