Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just cant concentrate on my necrons at the moment.
I just got a battle-force and Im painting them, Im worried casue of the cron update, If they make new models and I dont even have 1000 points let alone another 500, and every time I think about it I get more worried casue then I would have to sell them and get the new ones.
2nd is I badly need a way to make money Im 11, I only get $8.00 and for that I gotta do the dishes every single day, the rubbish every single day, make my own lunch every single day and every second week I gotta take the food out and wash my dog every single day.
PS. It really does take me a long time to save up for things with only $8, luckily its my birthday in 4 weeks, but I need to find a good job we have 9 stores near out house should I ask them?
Play with proxies man! proxies.
A proxy is basically a stand in for your models, for whatever proxy I need to use I just use old models I have.
but you can actually play warhammer for free, just find some cardboard and cut them up into the base sizes and label them. Don't worry about new and old models they look good now and they'll look good later.
and by the way, you must have a really clean dog to wash him everyday.
You've discovered the reason that I didn't start buying Warhammer stuff until I was in my mid 20s and had the income to afford it. Unfortunately, not only is the game addicting, but its crazy expensive.
Being 11, your opportunities to make extra cash are limited. Here's some suggestions that you might benefit from.
1. If your birthday is coming up, hit up Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt and Uncle, and all the other relatives you can think of. Thats how I got a lot of my trumpet stuff back when I was in HS.
2. Over the school break, see about doing yard work for neighbors. If there's a nice old lady that lives up the road, see what you can make for cutting her lawn, etc.
And probably the most important...
3. Invest Wisely!! DON'T buy anything without first having a plan and goal for your army. If you prepare ahead of time, it will save you so much time and money. A quick glance through e-bay reveals handfuls of people who bought $300 worth of Warhammer only to assemble 50% of it and paint even less before they found out it wasn't for them. Build slow but build for a purpose. That way, every dollar you invest in your army (Necron or whatever you collect) is not being wasted.
Money can be very tight...I know this from personal experience. Be smart about what units you buy and you'll have a well tuned army without breaking the bank.
And that, my young friend, is what I have to say about that.
Additionally, I'm not worried about any model changes in any future release. The Necron models are solid as is and my only expectation is that they will release plastic Tomb Spyders and Immortals. The general look will stay the same. Anyhow, don't expect an update too soon. All the rumours have Space Marines, Space Wolves, and Dark Eldar at the front of the line.
Definitely plan you purchases.

+ Plan what you're going to buy
+ Exploit the elderly (like your grandparents)
+ Mow yards
You're not going to be able to get a real job until your 15 (depends on where you live...)
Also, if your parents will allow you, buy from eBay.
So... if I gave some daemons a matte paint-job, would they be "Matte Daemons?"
Necron Tactica: Flying Circus
Well you don't need to field 1500pts. Try to get people to play 1k with you instead and just work yourself up from the battleforce a bit to be able to throw that in.
It's usually not a problem if you proxy some older models. I don't play in tourneys, but field a squad of original immortals (bad idea they are UGLY)
My first suggestion is to save up for a couple extra destroyers. Or, one of the most cost/pts effective buys is flayed ones.
Use Ebay. Use Ebay. Use Ebay. You can get stuff for half of the cost, even with postage. I'm not sure of the business reasons, perhaps it's used for stocktake/clearance reasons, but more often than not, you can get some very good deals from there.
