me and my friend were playing a small scenario, necrons vs eldar. we messed up a little in the begining cause i had to move WAY far to get near him. he pwned me with his wraith lords, im guessing i could just deepstrike behind and try to get him, but we werent using deepstrike haha, so i sthere ne other way to take out a long range shooter? (since the crons dont have very big range)
Well I think I have only lost like one game to eldar. What I always did was worp a sqd of crons to kill the wraith lords, this will work even better in 4ed because of the move and rapid fire thing.
Use heavy or regular destroyers

Destroyers don't have enough punch (shots) to kill a wraith lord. Lets see now Im a real odds man so here goes... Each destroyer gets 3 shots, if you use 3 of them - 6 shots will hit, now then you need 6's to wound him, 1 will wound if you're lucky. The wraith lord has a 3 plus save so you probly won't do anything. If you worp a sqd of 10 warriors whith, the new rules you get 20 shots (if you worp, correctly) lets see here, that means that 6.6666666666666666666666666666667 will miss (of course we round up here), so then thats 13 hits, so here you get 2 wounds. You have a much better chance of wounding the wraith lord here. Of course this is exact odds, this will never happen this way in the game.
Take a Monolith.With the lith you eliminate the special ability of the heavy weapons in the eldar army (vehicles has max armor 12) so they canÂ´t kill the monolith. In the other hand you can aproach the enemy with the liths and then teleport your warriors using the lith and fire your enemey at short range ... :lol: NECRON WORKS VREY WELL AGAINST ELDAR .... IMO :ph34r:
i myself have never played an eldar army, BUT just looking at the stats, your best bet to wipe out those damned wraithlords (ive heard horror stories about those things) would be a ton of warriors opening fire on it. the monolith would also work nicely, as the bright lances lose their edge shooting at it.
Honestly, Wraith Lords are not really a huge threat to necron (unless they get into CC). So I usally just take my time killing them. Just take out all of the eldar infintry that have the star cannons first. Unless you mess up bad the wraith lords should never make it to you.
lol he shot at me everyturn with just that.... like i said tho we made a mistake on the game board cause for this small scenario i had to move WAY to far. but ya ill just try to take em out with some warriors or a lith when i get one whitch should be soon. thanx for the info
