Cheese . to many heavy hitters for him to kill. No fair.
Not Cheese. Legal list. Opponent should be ready for everything.
Played 1000 pt list tonight I threw together on a whim. My opponent Quit the 4th turn as it was no fun to him, And he was down to a Immobilized Iron Clad dreadnaught and a (4) 5 man Tactical squad. I ask you, Is a C'tan in 1000 pts Cheese.??
Tomb Spyder w/PPC
He ran a Tourny Salamander SM army with the Vulkan He"stan. 3 drop pods, he then spits into 5 man squads. Iron Clad Dread. Tech marine.
Heres what I found:
1:: Deciever is one mean mother. Especialy in 1000 pts. Deciever took 1 wound from a pwr fist in 3 rds of combat. Killed 8 of his troops out of 22.
2:: Knowing that its annihalation. Stuck my guys in cover. Make them earn every inch of gained ground with their spilt blood. Troops are tough little buggars if You keep them in Cover and out of CC.
3:: Wriaths are great for rushing in and messing up small combat sqauds before they reach my necrons.
He had my force down to about 50% necrons when he quit. I think He made 1 fatal mistake of rapidfiring a squad instead of rushing and CCing my squad which was in range.
Protect the necrons at all costs. I actully moved my necrons up levels in a building so it was a farther distance to assault.
So anyway. This Heavy hitter list. do you think its cheesy to have so many heavys in 1000 pts. He said he was never going to play necrons again as he doesnt like the necrons special rules. I think he just got Tourny army trumped and was peved.
Final Necrons win..
Necrons :: 1 squad wraiths killed
Sallys :: 3 combat teams killed, Tech maraine, Dread Immobilized, 1 Droppod destroyed.

That's...wow that is a really mean nasty cronzilla list you've got there. I'd say it's good for competitive, a bit too mean for friendly though (except against Marines, they deserve it :p ) Can't say I have any complaints about it, looks plenty fun.
You're in the wrong forum though mate.
I see nothing wrong with this list.
You've got a darn small number of Necron models, so phase out should be a concern to be honest. But hey, out of all the low model count Necron lists I've seen this one seems rather competitive.
Good luck with it, seems fun!
hey any list can beat any list as far as im concerned, he just failed to beat you on a tactical level thats all, since spyders and the deceiver are very easy to avoid
There is no "I" in "team", there is an "I" in "pie" however, as in "Meat Pie" with "Meat" being an anogram of "Team".
I voted "not cheesy" 'cause with all the Nidzilla lists around (I mean, come ooooon, 6 carnifexes?!!? even without their upgrades they can still bash you brains out), this one is easy as a pie!
Not just that, I've run against Eldar who had 2 wraithlords in a 1k list. With them not being vehicles I couldn't put a DENT on them. So realistically, if I came against this list...KILL the warriors. Case closed...his objective should have been to take the warriors out.
"There is only do, or do not. There is no try." - Yoda
Guass can kill everythjng, even wraithlords
Gauss can kill Titans, so yeah.
AWESOME list. I'm going to steal it, of course. I was thinking about whether to start Tyranids or to buy a full 9 Spyders, and this alone has convinced me. I want to play this so badly now...
Plus who plays Sternguard in 1k? Hopefully not my opponent.
Necron Army Building Maxima: Beware of Phase Out
back on topic: I think complaining about "cheesy" lists is meaningless. Everything tends to be balanced, so if you use a C'Tan in a 1000pts game, you could easily be Phased Out, your opponent just has to be that smart to realize that (and try to focus on everything BUT your Deceiver)! I mean, he could just wipe your warriors with everything he got and bye-bye Deceiver!
