Welcome to Librarium Online!
So yesterday me and a couple guys decide to have a three v two all necrons game to figure which mathmatician is better. Telsa or Guass. We put that the telsa side was not allowed to have gauss weapons and the Guass aide was not allowed to use telsa weapons. We also said that if the Guass side wanted to have any kind of scythe they would have a heavy guass cannon instead of the tesla. So the game was a special mission. Primary objective was to capture four wounded soldiers that moved d6 inches every game turn in a random direction. The secondary objective was to control two command points, and the tridinary objective was to kill as many things as possible. Also, only normal infinty models were allowed on the board at the begining of the game, everything else was in reserve.
Telsa goes first
Telsa 30 models
Guass 50 models
Not much could happen because we have to walk and there was night fighting becuase telsa had imotek
Telsa deep strikes 2 doom scythes, 4 night scythes, turbo boosts with tomb blades. Hits a unit with immoteks lightning. Fires off a deathray because one scythe came in and mishaped to blow up, and killed warriors, lychguard, and flayed ones. But they came back anyway. Quite a few telsa destructor shots that took down warriors and immortals and that is all.
Guass pulls in a monolith which at that point teslas nemesor zandrekh take effect and we deep strike several more night scythes and doom scythes, pull on annihilation barges, then they deep strike other monoliths, pull on wraiths and move and try to fire but either cant reach or do nothing because of resurrection rolls.
Tesla does some more deep striking firs off several death rays each one knocking over on average 15 - 20 models, massive tesla shots finally take down all of the flayed ones, and also we have anrakyr who decides that he will have a monolith fire at another monolith and does nothing. Our scarabs and ctan decide to assualt a monolith bringing its armour down to nine and the ctan stuned the hell out of it.
Guass did some more deepstrikes take out two night scythes and a fiew immortals.
Guass gave up because they saw that their force was diminishing fast before the telsa weapons and death rays, so tesla wins.

The only gauss I have in my army is with the warriors.

Really, to be a fair test, I would have just pitted Immortals against each other with Gauss Blasters and Tesla Carbines. Still though, the more I use Tesla weapons, the more I like them. That exploding 6 rule really helps a lot, and the lack of AP hasn't been a problem. AP isn't all that important right now due to the abundance of cover saves anyways, so the AP 4 on the Gauss Blasters really doesn't enter into the equation for me. As far as the auto-glance rule of Gauss is concerned, Warriors can do that job equally well and cost less points. Tesla Carbines for Immortals all the way.
Annihilation Barges are my new best friends. They've chewed up Marines like nobody's business. The AP - hasn't been much of a problem either, and according to the 6th edition rumors, it will get even better since it no longer causes -1 on the damage table. Transports beware!
