Would Necrons ever fight other Necrons for any reason at all i've always wondered if they would..... speaking of which i haven't even seen a game where Necrons are fighting each other EVER !! so anyways back to the question would Necrons fight Necrons even fluff-wise thanx.
For Fluff reasons, I can't really think of anything that would get Necrons to fight one another. Because of the reign and near complete control of the C'tan independent thought is not that common among them. I could see the C'tan infighting again, but I'm pretty sure they understand that with their current numbers the only way to conquer the galaxy once again is to work together (to a point).
As for Necron v. Necron games, I've never run one either, and I can only imagine it being freaking ridiculously long and dull.
Well, considering the fact that when there was only four C'tans left Deceiver made a deal with enemies of C'tan, told them where Nightbringer was sleeping and almost got Nighty killed I would assume there isn't much love lost between the two. As Necrons are mre pawns to C'tans I don't see why they wouldn't gleefully sacrifice a bundle of necrons to rain on other C'tans parade.
However, I can't see Deceiver ever being stupid enough to take Nightbringer on mano-i-mano... No matter how much Nighty would probably like to. Its just not in his nature.

Something Wicked... Reikwald Beastmen: (W/L/D) 10/4/1
i dont think it has to be dull, if both players have different playing styles (i.e: one relies on masses of Necron Warriors/Tomb Spiders other relies on alot of Destroyers) maybe in a solar system with almost no living things left. where two c'tan armies happen to be (Deceiver army on Planet A, Nightbringer army on planet B. both trying to get the last living things on planet C?)
best i can think off
I agree, a Ctan against Ctan could be fluffy...and of course their respective armies in tow. But purely Necron vs Necron without Ctan hatred involved...probably not? Maybe if one Ctan came across a Nightbringer specific group but the NB wasn't there he might unleash some vengance...but couldn't he just take them over if the NB wasn't there....interesting concept. I will admit Necron Vs Necron fights SUCK! It's like saying ok, roll a D6...1-3 I win, 4-6 you win. Done.

@Dark Trainer: Void Dragon could take over a NB specific group.
I think you Necron players should be forced to do at least one Necron v. Necron game. Since it's IMPOSSIBLE TO KILL MONOLITHS. They can't be glanced to death.
