Welcome to Librarium Online!
I had just sold off some of my old Necrons at the beginning of the summer, as part of an effort fund the trip for my fiance to move in. Definitely got a good trade in but now I kind of want them back.. it's a totally different army now.. As I've mentioned in other posts, I won't be able to play test anything until around Christmas, but right now this is what I'm thinking as a good start. Won't be able to get many games in, so I'd like to have a fairly refined list by then.
HQ ([ 2 0 0 ])
Necron Overlord Lord
+ Warscythe, Mindshackle Scarabs, Resurrection Orb
Harbinger of Destruction
+ Eldricht Staff, Solar Pulse
Elites ([ 3 0 0 ])
+ Heat Ray
+ Heat Ray
Troops ([ 4 7 9 ])
+ 9x Warriors
+ Ghost Arc
+ 9x Warriors
+ 10x Warriors
Fast Attack ([ 7 5 ])
+5x Scarab Bases
Heavy Support ([ 2 0 0 ])
TOTAL ([ 1 2 5 4 ])
EDIT: Dropped DLord and Wraiths for Overlord and another Stalker after learning that the DLord does not unlock the HoD, which is a central focus to my list. If being 4 points over is a big deal to anybody, I'd just drop a warrior from the 10x man squad.

Huh.. terribly sorry for the bother. I was in both forums at the same time, must have posted this in the wrong tab >.> If a moderator sees this, could this please be moved to the appropriate forum? Thanks!
It probably wont get moved, seeing how we still have tons of useless stickies at the top of this forum.
anyways the theory looks solid but you have a few flaws:
destroyer lords are not overlords, therefor, they dont unlock Royal Courts.
if you look at the wording, wraiths can only take one of the following, so you cant have both a whip and a pistol.
other than that my only worry is anti tank, but you do have a few options.
I am kind of worried about anti tank as well, but at 1250 I don't think I'll see too much aside from transports, which I want to test to see if Gauss spam is as effective against as I think it will be. The Stalker is really my main anti tank, I'm not counting on Scarabs being able to reduce the AV of anything enough that it can be popped otherwise, only because I'm not counting on them to survive that long.
I totally missed that about Destroyer Lords, though Totally sucks.. I'm going to have to completely reconsider how I'm using Wraiths now. And regarding the Wraiths themselves, I do have a tendency to overlook things like that ;P Thanks for pointing it out. I might just replace them with another Stalker.. I'm totally enamored by those things right now..
Thanks for the reply Just updated the list with a few changes.. don't know if I really want to drop the Wraiths or not, though.

consider squeezing in a spider with a claw, that way you can manufacture more scarabs, and fix broken heat rays and such. along with a backline defender in a sturdy monstrous creature.
So, when I said I sold off my models.. it turns out I didn't ^-^ I had quite a collection, mostly unassembled, between Eldar, Tau, GK, IG, Crons, Orks, Mahreens, and a few painted models from various other armies. I sold off most of it and thought I only kept the Orks, but now that I just found my box of bitz, I realized I kept Crons too, in the event that the new codex would inspire me to play them again ^-^ Nothing too major, something like 30-40 Warriors (half assembled and painted), Lord, 3 Destroyers, and 9 Scarabs swarms. This discovery will definitely skew my list consideration a bit..
