    [1500] Balanced

    It's been a while since I played 'crons (my last 2000pt 'cron army was stolen :cry: ) so I may be a little rusty about how they work (no pun intended!)

    Lord + Res Orb
    Lord + Destroyer Body + Lightning Field

    15 Warriors
    15 Warriors

    3 Destroyers
    3 Destroyers
    8 Scarab Swarms + Disruption Field

    Monolith

    The plan was to have the Lord with Res Orb march up the board with the Warrior squads. The Lord with D Body was going to join the scarabs and run up to tanks or infantry squads (hence the Disruption Field and Lightning Field respectively). The Destroyers would scream down the flank and either kill tanks or anything I didn't like the look of. The Monolith would be in reserve and deep strike between me and the enemy lines or in the enemy lines.

    The Monolith would have a two fold effect. It would make the enemy freak out since there is a Monoith in their deployment zone and it would take focus away from the rest of my army. Secondly the army can then re-roll their WBB while being pulled out of combat since by that time the enemy would have probably assaulted my lines.

    C and C anyone?

    Lords without Res Orbs are a waste. Also, Lightning Field Relies on you getting hit. So, drop the Feild and a Scarab to pick up a Rez Orb for the Destroyer Lord. Split the Warriors into 3 units of ten.

    My two cents.

    I agree. lords need rez orbs, and having a destroyer body means itcan get to where its needed quickly.

    Hmmm, perhaps drop the lord on foot, give the lord with d body a res orb and get more warriors? I really want more warriors, 30 just doesn't seem enough.

    The dLord doesn't need a RO if it is only escorting Scarabs (they don't benefit from it). The dLord's Toughness will prevent Instant Death from anything (per the Wargear entry of the Destroyer Body, Codex: Necrons pg. 13. This means only wounds caused in CC from weapons that ignore aSaves will prevent WWB. But that's only half the story as the dLord will be escorting 24 wounds around the board (don't forget Multiple Toughness/Mixed Armour rules).

    I think the Scarabs can do without the Lord escort and following my previous statement is moot.
