I am a IG player who recently played against Nec's for the first time. However, it was a combined game. He played with orks and they had 1000 points each. However this made the Phase out rule seem kind of unfair. Since we could have eliminated half of their army quickly and we had time and points to dedicate to killing necrons he had to hide. I was wondering if anyone knew of a decent way around this problem.
In a game like that which is obviously friendly you can just choose to ignore the phase out rule, after all the game is supposed to be fun!
In the past I've played apocalypse games with 6 players a side, the necron players got to ignore phase out since 2-3 destroyer blasts would get him to phase out in one turn.

Yea that was our original thought but we were concerned that it might then make the "We'll be back rule" more powerful than it is
in the next couple of days or so, i will be playing 2 v 2 mega battle and it will be guard/necron v guard/eldar. it will be 2000 pts per army, which should make things pretty interesting, not to mention that the guard players will be using the new codex, which is all sorts of wrong for necrons.
but should the Phase Out rule still be in affect for a game at this scale?
I think as the game gets bigger it becomes a lot more balanced.
But one thing I will say about your game is watch out for Marbo. He comes on the board anywhere as long as its more than 1'' away from your guys and has a large blast that pierces and insta kills a lot of stuff. I took out 8 warriors on the weekend.
in a sense that is true, except for the necrons (imo) especially against tau and ig. more points mean more tanks. its even worse against the orks. a mob of 20 pulling off an assault + charge gives them over 100 attacks.
when we play the mega battle, i am going to sit back and cherry pick once the guard are done blowing the hell out of each other
And I haven't really had any troubles with the new guard codex vs my necrons. Save for them outflanking half of their army right into my ranks. I've actualy done better against them with the new rules. Though, haven't gone against a punisher yet.
Yes, I did deep-strike your sister...
