    New to 40K: I want to play necrons

    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.

    Thanks! What you have posted is very close to what I was thinking about. I just bought some immortals yesterday!!

    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.

    Question:
    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!
