I have been a long time WHF player, and now I want to get into 40k! So, I have started collecting necrons (I like the models!)
Our local league is running at 2000 to 2500 pts. So, what I need is some help on what to buy and design on the army. This league is VERY competive. The level of play is at GT grade.
:yes: I need a GOOD hard Necron army. :shiftythis store is full of marines)
I suggest that your army include, at the least, these:
- A VoD/RO Lord + Immortals squad (7-10 models)
- A Scarab Swarm w/dFields (8-10 models)
- A Destroyer Squad (4 models)
- 1 Monolith
- 2 Heavy Destroyer squads (2 models each)
- Solid core of Warriors (36-40+ models)
Fill out the points (very few left for 2000; 500+ for 2500) however you like. More Destroyers is a good way to go. A second Lord w/RO, some infiltrated Flayed Ones (be patient with these), Wraiths with a Destroyer Lord (first turn assault using a Monolith), and more Warriors are good choices.

What I have read is you need to have tonz of "necrons" to make sure they don't phase out, and if you play with 2 liths you are cheezy.
Why does nobody like Parriahs, H. Destroyers, or tomb spiders?
2 monolith isn't chessey, just tactically unadvisable for a new player. People call it cheese because 1 i hard to stop, 2 is nigh impossible.
Anyway, the reason nonone uses those units is-
Pariahs: blatantly aren't worth their cost, they aren't necrons and are goddamn slow and even when they make combat their I3 and A1 hinders them too much.
Heavy destroyers: simply, why need anti tank when your entire army can do it for less? They do have uses though, you WILL need heavy D's if you face a tyranid "godzilla" army or deathwing.
Tombspyders: are actually brilliant, they allow you to spread out your necrons with reduced fear of isolation (thus being denied WB.
Go back and in a few short pages, you will see why. I'm not going to say much, or start any arguments. Just look farther back in the Necron section.
I am not trying to start any debates.... I am just a very new 40k player that listens to what people are saying (even though some of my sources could be just plain wrong.)
I am going to go back and starting reading the old posts on the board and get "up to speed" on the latest necro debates!
