Welcome to Librarium Online!
OK so im ordering an army of Necrons, and for now its just the Battleforce, a Lord on a Destroyer body, and the Nightbringer, for a roughly 1500pt army. And i may or may no proxy a Monolith...depending on how it all goes.
I'll be going against a friend of mine sometime who has a 1500.
He has the normal battleforce of 'Nids, plus a Tyrant, which he's gonna give wings(we all just play for fun)
Basically, if anyone has any tips on strategy or other Units i'll need to fight his army, or what to equip to my Lord, it'd be appreciated.
well a little more information about the other guys list would be helpfull but of the bat I can tell you this. HD will be your freinds in fighting the nids taking out the Hive tyrant before it can do any real damage is always a nice thing to do. and to be honoust avoid the Night bringer to expensive and to slow to be of any real help. Wraiths are good though against the Carnifexes of the nids.
That's all I can say for now.
Destroyers will be a great unit to use, lots of efective ranged shooting, and they are fast so they can avoidcombat a little easier. With the Flux Arc, and its ability to drag your units out of combat it will be very useful and killy.
the NB should be able to deal with big Nids easy, and if you wnat to get into combat vs some others then a Dlord with some Wraiths should be able to do some good damage.
Hmmm...well all i'll have is this to start off with, once i get more money later i'll prolly buy some HD's and possibly regular Destroyers and Wraiths
I DO want the C'Tan, Necrons being my favorite race i want to collect at least one of each type, tho i'll prolly stop using C'Tan once i get more of the necessary stuff (Warries, D, HD, so on)
But also, more details on my friends army:
2-Hive Tyrants (1 is Winged)
One is a ranged Carni, other is CC, for now. Stealers have Rending
I believe non-winged HT is ranged, winged one is CC.
...I think I've got my work cut out for me...
well obviously you needs some HD for the carni's and you going to need a monolith I think. it will give you some nice ordance tempate or High mobilty and reclye options wor you warriors. just don't go overboard on extreems like a nightbringer 1 cc fex can keep it busy while the resty of the nids go beserk on you. rather take a deceiver and use it's redeployment to play By your rules. Not a expert on nids so don't know thoughesses and Armour saves but maybe normale destroyers will asloe work good for you considering the range and mobility. Try to find out what T and Armour saves all the unit's have and then see if destroyers could help.
Hmmm...i'll try that, I am def. proxying a Monolith, i'll buy a real one sooner hopefully that l8er...
By the sounds of it im gonna have to buy some more Destroyers and HD's
For the most part i know the stats of the 'Nids so that should help
But as for my C'Tan, i'll prolly keep the NB, and maybe just proxy it as Deciever just to see how each works, this is all for fun.
And there may be Space Marines too, cuz it might be a 1 on 1 on 1 match, so i wanna round out my army
Any suggestions for what to give my Lord?
Generic setups i think. ResOrb, possibly with VoD. Or a DLord with Phaser and Orb. If you want though you could always try a bit of a fear Lord. Gaze of Flame, Nightmare Shroud, etc.
Hhhhmmmmm...sounds good, i'm sure we'll have a few matches so i can test out strategies...
Thanx a lot for all the help tho guys, and anymore is also much appreciated
But also, is the points it costs worth it to make the Lord a DLord?
If you are running Wraiths then definitely. Inc T and awesome movement. Even of you just have him with Warriors then it can be good, but with Wraiths it means you can get him where he should be, Combat!
Sounds awesome, as soon as i get money I'll order some Wraiths first off
Would Flayed ones be a good addition to the army also, or should i keep to Wraiths for CC?
