Well I gave this a try in the Army List section but no one really was repling, so I thought i would give it a chance here.
Here is what I was thinking for my first 1000pt Cron list:
Lord w/ resurrection orb, phylactery, war scythe
5 scarab swarms
Phase out a 9
997 total pts
The only concern I have is, am I taking to many warriors for a 1000 pt game. Also I will be playing nids probably so should I drop a set of warriors for a set of flayed ones??
I don't see anything wrong whith your list. As for the Flayed Ones 50/50 Nids are a CC army so you wan't to have a lot of shooting, but if you get into CC you wan't a good CC unit. But if I were you I would probly use 10 flayed ones.
Also some people would probly disagree whith me, but I hate the phylactery, and if you play nids the war scthye will suck. Because nids don't have any INV saves and the lord already has a power weapon AND it can shoot. Also i would give him a VoD.
Ok so get rid of war scythe and phylactery for nids and use VoD to keep me out of CC?
Yeah, you should. There is nothing worse than having your lord in cc with a montrous creature.Originally posted by CaptainClegg@Sep 29 2004, 07:17

You call those cheap implants boobs?
They aren't boobs, they're lies!
What he said... And if I were you I would REALLY think about taking Flayed Ones.
flayed ones vs necron warriors really isnt going to amount to much. one way you're getting to get your kills by shooting, the other you're going to get your kills through CC. i personally would stick with shooting and take the necron warriors, but depending on how you position the flayed ones they could be the better choice.
If i play againts nids i wonÂ´t use wraiths (they must be used in large formation 6-9 wraiths),
the necron unit should be larger (if you take larger units you sholud make less morale check, after playning opne year with necrons, i have learns that morale can be our main enemy)
and take the VoD and res orb in the Lord for taking out CC (donÂ´t fight with TMC) ... IMO
This may sound insane but against nids, you might want to consider a monolith. Nids have problems getting rid of it because all their firepower is tied up in TMC's and you can negate that by scarab swarming them. Then just clean up the little buggers with the Monolith and let the TMC's play the "come out of cc and get gaussed to death" game.
Yes, the lith is very good against nids ... One of my armies is nids and itÂ´s impossible to take out the lith with nids (very difficult) .. and the lith can:Originally posted by The Mad Hatter@Oct 7 2004, 11:49

1) Teleport necron units for taking out CC :ph34r:
2) Fire many shoots cause the F5 AP4 can kill all nids units except TMC :lol:
scarabs won't do very well tying up a TMC since it will just insta kill them. I would not take a monolith in 1000 points, that's just asking to be phased out. Wraiths are not a bad idea, but more of them is better. As has been said, drop the warscythe. Against nids you might be better off with immortals or more destroyers.
The enemies of the Emperor fear many things. They fear discovery, defeat, despair and death. Yet there is one thing they fear above all others. They fear the wrath of the Space Marines!
