1500 pts battle
2 cc armys vs to shooty armys
need tips help us plz
For the Necrons you can actually outshoot them as most of their weapons have a 24" range and your machine killers can reach out 36". Disintegrators are your friend. If he takes a cheeseball leave it alone if possible and go for the phaseout. He'll eat a lot of points and the numbers won't be that high.
one word.. ravagers with dissies, as ollie tells ya. Tau might be tough against that strategy, so while ravagers and dark lances snipe, you advance with your chaos and wyches to the tau, take care of them and necs on ground and you should kill em
"There is no middle ground. Strike Hard, strike fast and strike first."
First off what flavour of chaos.
I would suggest taking 3 ravagers with dissies @ 345
3 10 man squads with 2DL and 3 10 man raider squads with 1 SC and a sybarite with poisonblades @ 723
2 5 man Wych squad w/ WW and Succu+Ago on raider @ 148
1 Archon + CD+Ago+Sp+SF @ 130
1494 total, spend the six points on giving a wych squad grenades or upgrading a sybarite to a power weapon or wahtever you like.
Archon joins one of the Wych raiders.
Ravagers shoot the Necrons, taking out destroyers firs then warriors to go for phase out, ignore the monolith if there is one.
DL's target Hammerheads/destroyers/devilfish/necron warriors int hat order.
All the raiders move towards the Tau and disembark, raiders help with the tank hunting and/or necron hunting whilst wyches and warriors charge into close combat (Don't disembark on turn one if you won't make it across the field, hide in cover and goe for a turn 2 charge) rip the tau to bits with warriors and wyches in cc, charge your archon at either the Nec lord (in wich case her raider may want o detour at the last minute) or the tau commander/suits. You'll mash any of them. Your chaos ally I can't make suggestions for until I know what type of chaos. Hope this helps. Obviously modify the list to suit your playing style, as that is designed for my playing style so may not be to your tastes.
(The list I gave conatins 11 DL, 9 Disintegrators, 3 Splinter cannons, 3 Agonisers, 3 sets of Poison blades and a total of 79 models, including 8 vehicles.)
Yes, three Ravagers with Dissies. Also give them Nightshields.
If you could get a Webway Portal up in a forward position and march in two maxed out Incubi retinues that'd be great.
The cc armies should win this match up everytime. I can't stress this strategy enough. Speed, Speed, Speed! Go for the Tau first. Ignore the existence of the Necrons entirely! Why? If you went for the Necrons first you would still be in the Tau weapon range! If you eliminate the Tau first you should be out of Necron weapon range and maybe get a round to reorient yourself for the final push against the Necrons. You probably wont lose many troops in hth against the Tau but its even odds against the Necrons. don't forget to bring power and heavy weapons for the final battle against the Necrons! Good luck and post up your battle report I would love to read it!
Just use 3 Ravagers, 9 Disintegrators.

Nuke a Necron Warrior squad a turn and he'll phase out quick. Then finish off the Tau in hand to hand.
railguns will eat up your ravagers, night shields or not....so make sure they hide and pop out and shoot
also dark lances will wreck any battlesuits, inv save drones will only help 50% of time so you can ofetn instakill battlesuits
ive had success with mandrakes...you can often get a 2nd turn charge with them and use em to start a combat that will block LOS from his heavy weapons and stuff that are usually deployed behind the firewarriors...this will buy you some time
your chaos ally should load up on heavy bolters cause these things just mow through tau
what a long strange trip its been
go for tau first like everyone else is saying cause railguns will destroy you. use a wych army if you can with raiders and get a lelith.
