    Heavy Destroyers

    So now that glancing a vehicle will almost never destroy it necrons players are left with just the monolith and heavy destroyers. So unless GW make new rules for guass weapons necron armies will change drastically. So how will necrons take out vehicles in 5th edition?

    Maybe now the nightbringer is worth the points

    Personally I have a suspicion that with the new Vehicle Damage Chart, Gauss will get a slight modification.
    Something like, "Gauss weapons get a +2 to rolls on the Vehicle Damage Chart".
    Hopefully it will be listed in the Rule Book, and not have to wait until they update the Codex, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

    Until we see a new Cron Dex, im thinking Heavies will now become a viable choice!

    I use Tomb Spyders and scarbs with disruption fields! I'm a Tomb Spyder, destroyer(not heavy), warriors, and monolith fanatic!
    I thought I was smart, but apparently people don't like to take advice from beggars.

    Disruption fields only cause a glance also. You're back to square-one. Heavy Destroyers will be the way to do it for the time being.

    Based upon the 5th edition leak, Rending is slightly nerfed. I could honestly see Gauss counting as Rending in the Necron future.

    Since it sounds as though vehicles will not be scoring units I doubt the new damage rules will be that inconvenient; furthermore, it sounds as though all gauss hits will still prevent a vehicle from firing. And glances will still destroy a vehicle, it'll just take a few more rolls, which is not a serious handicap for an army in which nearly all ranged weapons have the rule and nearly all units have strong resistance to battle cannons, not to mention the lesser firepower that comes from a tank. Still, if people start taking heavy Destroyers instead of spamming with the regular type, great!

    In 5th ed, glancing gets -2 on the single vehicle damage table.

    So, in your words, it is fine and "not a big problem" that we are left with one gun in the whole army (Not counting Mr. BadAss Nightbringer and Monos as not a lot of people seem to play them now, but then again, maybe they will in 5th, as Mono will also benefit from the same new table) that can pen 12+ armor, in the light that glancing just became... I want to say, significantly less destructive? It is a nerf for us, but how big of a nerf, we will only learn... Glancing tanks to death was one of the key tactics of our army. Welcome HDestroyers...
