Im about to get like $150 and plan to spend it all on my necron army. Can you guys give me some sample army lists of things I should get? It would be great if you could.
Well, ultimately what you buy will depend on your preferred style of play, but for starters you should buy two boxes of Necron Warriors (24 models) and a Necron Lord so that you can field a legal army. From there on it really depends on what appeals to you. Either getting more warriors or getting some destroyers would both be solid choices.
If you are new to Necrons I wouldn't dabble too much in flayed ones or pariahs yet, since they can be hard to use effectively. Also, I wouldn't get a Monolith or C'tan to start with, since despite being so hyped-up they really aren't worth the points in most games.
If you give me a little more information about what kind of army you're hoping to make I can give you some more specific advice. Hope this helps!
Well that sounds good. I have yet to get a codex for the necrons for the closest shop to my house is going out of business so they have not ordered any new things. Therefore I just bought some warriors and scarabs and Im painting them at the moment. Next I plan to get the codex and a Lord od some kind. I want to lean towards an army with lots of fire power. I have a friend who does Space Wolves and he is so loaded up with las cannons its almost not any fun to play with him because he takes out my stuff so fast. I want to be able to take out the things with las cannons fast enough before they do some real damage. Any words of advice would be helpful. ^_^
Okay. Your next purchase (after the Lord and Codex) should definitely be either a couple destroyers or a couple heavy destroyers. You will want to get them both eventually so it doesn't really matter what order you buy them in. Basically regular destroyers get three shots each at 36" range that will wound space marines on a 2+. Heavy Destroyers have a 36" lascannon themselves. Either of these choices would help you to pick off his heavy weapons dudes before they toast your army.
Awesome thanks. What Lord do you recomend, regular or destroyer?
i would still like to see an army that looks like:
1 necron lord
89 necron warriors.
that would be about 1700 points (which is the standard army size for Canadian tournies).
89 necron warriors. think about that. theyre basically good at everything, leaning towards shooty, and as long as they get their 'wbb' roll theyre pretty much wearing terminator armor.
i think it would be fun(ny) to play with that army. i mean really now, your opponent would be going into shock. who the hell prepares an army list with killing 89 necron warriors in mind?
But with 89 warriors that wouldn't be too much of an interesting game. Also This is a bit unfair.
You call those cheap implants boobs?
They aren't boobs, they're lies!
hey, this is a warhammer, not a friendly sport competition. Who said that playing this game would be fair. My advice- take that gobbohorde-like army and swarm him.....
The necron warrior are the core of the necron army so you must take 2 warrios boxes. You need a Lord like HQ (cause the CTan only are good options in many opints games).
IĀ“ll tell that you should paint your warriors and Lord slowly (When I started playing nids a take some models and paint them quickly. I sholudnĀ“t do that cause now, one year later, i must repaint all the nids :realmad: ). And while you paint your new necrons ypu can play 40K with other models that can simulate your army (you can take SM like inmoratl, or rubbers like destroyers). In some games you can learn the different functions of the squads and then you can buy new miniatures ...
Take it easy, I know thatĀ“s very difficult, but IMO itĀ“s the best way to collect an army (if you arenĀ“t rich)
me=not rich. :unsure:
