Well for my 1500 point army, apart from 3 H.D I will have nothing that can kill tanks and is quite strong. :party2:
So how can I get a good 1500 point army fitting one of those in?
A Lith isn't a Tank killer, and neither is a Ctan really.. they are more anti infantry. Unless you want to pay the points for the NB just for his ranged weapon, then don't bother.
However id still say use a lith at anything 1250pts+, but when it comes to antitank, you have gauss! It works, use it
Oh, also drop one heavyD and just have 2 units of 1.
I prefer normal Destroyers to Heavy Destroyers as they can take out either infantry or vehicles and in a smaller game you need units that can diversify their targeting options.
A Monolith can work as anti-tank with its ordinance bonus to armour penetration and since your playing a relativly small points limit I can guess you'll be on a 4'x4' board meaning the average range of the Particle whip won't cripple you.
A 1500 point I use is:
200 point Lord
Monolith or Immortals x8
Read the Codex. Specifically, rules on the Gauss weapons.apart from 3 H.D I will have nothing that can kill tanks and is quite strong
Yep. That's why Necrons are the bane of tank-heavy armies. Even your tiniest Warrior with his puny Gauss Blaster can damage a Land Raider with a little luck.
Thats the main point .... luck, Necrons are extremely random of how they can destroy tanks, and I think your missing the REAL bane of tank heavy armies..... Dark Eldar min maxed dark lance spam, where your strength 8 gun can get a easy penetrating hit on land raider with hardly any luck.
HEY! my kabal takes GREAT offence! lol jk
but i agree with the necron's luck... it is completely random... also i had a couple of team games with a friend and from what i saw.
Destroyers are better then H.D due to the fact they get... what 3 shots per destroyer? glance on 6's??? theirs more chance their IMO.
if youd like actually and go for an army FULL of cheese...
take 3 monoliths, 2 lords with res. orbs and max out on warriors...
