Hello one in all, you Necron players out there. I have been wondering what are your most used or favorite builds for our most customizeable unit we have. So please say what you slap on to him. Maybe then the Necrons will yet again rule the stars. Thank you all in advance.
My favorite build is Rez orb, phylactery and warscythe. A good all-round support unit which can either provide some CC kick for warriors or boost the effectiveness of flayed ones. Give him a destroyer body and the lord can keep pace with destroyers or wraiths as well.
I just hate to spend 210 pts on a Dlord when my Deceiver is SOOOOOO much better for 90 more points and worth far more than that tiny upgrade cost.
However, the real opinion is useful wargear.
Support Lords (Orb only / Orb+Chrono / or Orb+Gaze):
-Orb, hands down the best wargear!
-If you have 10pts you can't spend, get a Chrono...since the FAQ fixed the chrono to work on the init test, at least it's something
-If you have 15pts i get gaze of flame. Removing 1 attack from the charge can be HUGE to surviving CC which we suck at right now. At least helping them survive to the round to get portalled....
CC Lord (Dbody+Phase Shifter+Orb+Warscythe):
- DBody and Warscythe go hand in hand! True T6 preventing instadeath is big!
-Phase shifter as any self respecting CC specialist should have an invul save.
-Orb if he has wraiths (but not vital), grants him WBB though should he die too!
-Phylactery I'm not a fan of, some like it. Problem I have with it, is it's useless unless you die! Meaning to gain it's usefulness you have to die...where the phase shifter on the other hand is better for that reason.

I generally field two types of Lords:
Support Lord: Resurrection Orb, Gaze of Flame and Warscythe (165 points)
Assault Lord: Destroyer Body, Warscythe (150 points)
Support Lord is there almost always when my Necrons are on the field. His task is to provide the orb, but also take away enemy assault bonus and rip up the terminators if he gets jumped.
Assault Lord is there if I don't feel like taking C'Tan. I'll pair him up with some D-field Scarabs and he can do pretty much anything: Assault, counter-assault, rip up tanks...
Revenant Moon Necrons: (W/L/D) 0/1/0 (6th edition: 13/2/2)(5th edition: 14/6/4)(3rd edition Codex: 16/4/7)
XIX Legion: (W/L/D) 0/0/0 (5th edition: 14/12/2)(5th edition Codex: 4/3/0)
Black Legion: (W/L/D) 1/0/0 (6th edition: 2/3/0)
Something Wicked... Reikwald Beastmen: (W/L/D) 10/4/1
The builds I generally go with are:
Destroyer Body, Phase Shifter, Res Orb & Warscythe
Destroyer Body, Res Orb, Nightmare Shroud & Warscythe
For fun a nightmare lord - Res Orb, Nightmare Shroud, Gase Of Flame & Warscythe (This can be so much fun with Flayed Ones and Pariahs, testing to hit Flayed Ones on leadership 6 is hilarious!)
Thank you all, but I have a question for Dark Trainer. Where is the FAQ about the chronometron? I cant find it anywhere?
Third page, right hand side, half way down; it's the first one under Wargear.
that would be "where IN the FAQ is the chrono ruling?" If Longshadow7 was asking where IS the FAQ, please check the GW site, and check the section under :
Warhammer 40k> Warhammer 40k Frequently Asked Questions > Errata and Frequently Asked Questions Documents.
The list of downloadable pdfs is on the 2nd page.
There are three types of people in this world -- those who can count, and those who cannot.
Necron Lord is an amazing unit.I personally use these NL builds depending on my army.
The Flying Circus NL:
The Pariah Project NL:
Nightmare Shroud (Combined with the Pariah's ability to lower the enemy's Leadership to 7 the enemy will have it's army broken in pieces!)
The Tank Hunter NL: (put him in a squad of 8 or more Scarab Swarms with Dissruption field,no tank can stand this!Fast 'n' deadly)
The Killer Lord:
(send him to face whatever troubles you.From Monstrous creatures to a horde of Tyranids Hormagaunts.he will die but will case lots of casaultes.And probably he will return
3 main varients I use:
Lord - Res Orb
I use this if I'm low on points. In other words under 1500pts
Lord - Res Orb, Phase Shifter, Warscythe
This is my standard. Res orb is necessary and phase shifter is a brilliant help as anything that threatens him usually has a power weapon. Warscythe allows me to take out vehicles.
Chronometron and Gaze of Flame
If I have spare points these are the things I buy. Both increase survivability dramatically. Gaze is the better of the 2.
