Hey there peoples. I was wondering if I might be able to get some assistance with my Tournament Army.
Coming up soon is a 1000 point army tournament near where I live, and I was wondering what you could come up with using my army. I have come up with a few ideas myself, but they are fraught with gaping holes and vulnerabilities.
This is my total army collection: Lemme know what 1000 point army you would some up with only having these:
Imotekh the Stormlord
Trazyn the Infinite
Vargard Obyron (Created a custom model)
2x Lesser Necron Lords
40x Necron Warriors
5x Immortals (Can have either the blasters or Carbines.)
C'Tan Shard of the Nightbringer
5x Triarch Praetorians with Rods of Covenant
5x Lychguard with Hyperphase Swords and Dispersion Shields
Fast Attack Choices:
6x Canoptek Scarab Bases
1x Necron Destroyer (2x if I'm not using a Destroyer Lord as an HQ. Magnetised base.)
1x Doomsday Ark (Can be interchanged with a Ghost Ark.)
As you can probably tell, I prefer using an Infantry based army, but I am branching out with the Ghost/Doomsday Ark into Vehicles.
I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks in advance.
force organization chart
I'm assuming that means what chart is used.
Usual force Organisation.
First this should be in the army thread. 2nd his list above it's a 1k list it's what models from everything he owns would you use? It's a list of what he owns.
Personally the list isn't 'strong' or anything popping out as a MUST take. Here's my thoughts:
- Wraiths, annihilation barges, etc are good overall. Don't have any...
- Scarabs I don't like without spyders to spawn more.
- 40 warriors just says assault me please, so you need SOME counter assault unit. So I'd say at least the lychguard (haven't used em, nor do I like them).
- With so many warriors what you need is an HQ that opens up a court. Crypteks are GREAT for their cheap points.
Other than that, that list is hard to make a competitive one with.

do imotekh and trazyn not take up HQ slots? if they don't then my apologies. i do not have my codex at hand and i just assumed they do.
On the thoughts, I was strongly considering making an army with Wraiths and Spyders in it, but the problem is it's impossible to find models for either of them now, and I doubt very strongly I'll be able to find any before the tournament. Annihlation Barges I can't seem to find either. Whenever I go to the store where I get my Necrons: they've already been sold.
I prefer using Warriors over Immortals on the basis that I get more of them for cheaper, and all the Gauss Flayers make for my main Anti-Vehicle choice aside from my Overlord/Destroyer Lords Tach Arrows, my HQ's Warscythes, the C'Tan's Trans Thunderbolt and the Doomsday Cannon if I'm using it. I Might possibly be able to get a Cryptek or two before the tournament though, so I'll consider them if I can get one.
Some other things, you should get wraiths as some sort of combat buffer and rapid response unit. Crypteks are a must and spyders for spawn
The Gauss flayer will not do much for AA, crypteks are decent esp. the lance one (Dest I think it was)
So I have one available for my army (Sliced my thumb open making it, just FYI), slightly modified to make everything on it interchangable with the Tesla/Gauss Cannon weapons and the Catacomb Command Barge form. Using it: I came up with this for an army list:
Necron Overlord (90p) + Warscythe (10p) + Sempiternal Weave (15p) + Mindshackle Scarabs (15p) + Tachyon Arrow (30p) = 160p
2x Lesser Necron Lord (70p) + Warscythes (20p) + Sempiternal Weave (30p) + Mindshackle Scarabs (30p) = 150p
2x10 Necron warriors = 260p
1x5 Immortals (Tesla Carbines) = 85p
1x2 Necron Destroyers = 80p
Annihilation Barge (Tesla Cannon) = 90p
Doomsday Ark = 175p
1000p on the dot.
Opinion as to how this would work?
