    Monolith/C'tan army

    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
    Wraiths x3
    Wraiths x3
    Warriors x10
    Warriors x10
    Warriors x10
    Destroyers x5
    Monolith or Immortals x8

    Read the Codex. Specifically, rules on the Gauss weapons.
    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...
    insane!

    haha
