Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've been playing warhammer only for couple weeks and started off with necron.. wondered if it would be good idea run 20 warriors,and 20 immortals, 10 flayed ones.. Just ordered phalanx wondered if was good idea wanted to convert warriors to immortals and flayed ones
How many points are you aiming for and what armies will you regularly be playing against? The units you want to run come in at exactly 1100 points, but you need an HQ. So, more information please...

Aye, with a Necron lord (res orb version) that list would prove rather potent at 1250, however I feel having more warriors would serve you better in the long run once you get to higher points for objectives games etc.
You ARE getting 48 warriors, so you could make 9 flayed ones and 9 immortals, make the other 30 into warriors. You'll be pretty well off that way I think.
By and large, the more warriors, the better. You should have at least three 10-man squads, especially in lists of 1,500 points or more.
You'll also find that if you convert warriors into immortals, then use the "leftover" bits from that to make flayed ones, that you'll wind up with twice as many flayed ones as you will immortals (that is, unless you like wasting stuff), so you might consider going heavier on flayed ones than immortals. A 10-man squad of imms with a Veil of Darkness-equipped lord is a lethal unit. That will give you roughly 20 flayed ones, which will do pretty well, but don't get excited -- these things aren't genestealers. Keep them near other units in your army, so they can support each other.
The phalanx also has (I think) destroyers and a monolith. Also a nice addition.
here's a little advice from a really poor/lazy person. just build your models as warriors and paint them in different color schemes to designate warriors/immortal/flayed ones. just make sure the ppl you play with are ok with this.
also if you aren't too worried about detail and style just spray paint them on the sprews before hand, then assemble them, that way you don't have the monotony of painting them afterwards
Thank you guys
Why would he get twice as many FOs as Immortals? You get one Imm and one FO for 2 warriors, just cut off the guns on one, add the gun to the other one, assemble one in an upright pose (the 2-weapons warrior), the other hunched, add plasticard or other claws, bingo! 1 Immortal, one flayed.
And its by no means compulsory to take 30 warriors, veterans often use 20 warrior lists, but its a good deal harder to win if you dont know what youre doing!

OK here i have 12 warriors, so are they a important staple unit , if i was to make 28 to bring me to 40 will that work. That would leave me with 20 to convert ...
If the mission of the game is pure killing your 20-20-10 configuration would work well. Unfortunately, while useful in most missions, stopping power doesn't play as important a role. I'd boost the number Warriors to improve your ability to capture table quarters and objectives.
