Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm now starting 40k after playing fantasy for years.
there are 2 armies I like necrons and tau. Can you guys give me some advice on which to choose?
Considering you're posting on the Necron Subforum:
They look awesome, have incredible firepower, look awesome, are quite flexible as a force, look awesome, can deploy their own GODS, and... erhmm... Look awesome?
Only disadvantage we have is that lots of people think we are unbeatable and cheese. Sad, but hey.
-They have guns that can match the Tau guns.
-They wont get raped in CC if something gets close to them.
-They have a 50% change of coming back to life after being killed.
-They look cooler!
-Tau are pansy tree huggin' hippy greater good freaks.
A: better at CC
B: every gun can take out the biggest tank with the auto-glance rule
C: they Have the biggest tank!
D: About half that die, come back
E: (we might be bias here, but yes,)they do look pretty spiffy
F: Teleportation!! left and right zipping in and out of the warp.
i think that because this is the necron army forum everyone will say necrons, so what we all need to do is pop on over to the tau forum where the same topic will no doubt be posted and all say necrons there too!!
BTW I say Necrons!!!
i like 'crons better but dont think tau isnt cool

I actually have a slug living in YOU, right now...
Slowly will start playing: Iyanden, and Chaos.
Obviously I love Necrons...but it depends on how you want to play. Tau are the SHOOTIEST army in the game (isn't it them that has like 102" weapon, or some insane distance...)
Anyways, Necron for me was because like everyone said...
- Great Firepower
- Resilient like space marines except we have a change to get back up after being shot.
- Who doesn't want to control a Terminator looking army, all you need now is Arnold Schwartzenager to lead them...they look cool
- The Monolith is one of the BEST tanks in the game and 15 pts less than a stupid land raider :lol:
- Decent Close combat, (not the best, but better than Tau )
One thing I don't think anyone has hit on...yes people call us cheese because we are almost unbeatable, but I keep hearing about how Tyranids are a tough army due to the fact once they get in CC, we have difficulties since they are typically one of the BEST CC armies...not that we can't take them, just requires more strategy.
I'd only choose Tau if I wanted to shoot, shoot, shoot, and if I didn't get them all before they got close....RUN! :rofl:

- a properly built tau army could blast a necron army into the dust.
- awesome guns.
- far more interesting to paint.
- not many tau players.
- a challenging army to use properly.
- lots of models in the army (using less than 72 fire warriors in any game more than 1400 points seems stupid to me).
- lots of chances for references to great films and books.
- the best gun in the game (railgun = :ph34r: )
Necrons strength and weaknesses
They get back up
Limited cc options (as a side not warriors are not bad just have bad initiative and not great)
Expensive points wise
People call you cheesy most of the time and hate you some of the time even when your balanced
Necrons are a good army with some flexibility but limited cc and heavy long range weapons. They have elite basic troops will high power options but they donâ€™t come cheap. A little less than half the time your troops will get back up but once you get down to 75% you lose.
try reading overview tactica in both forums like my own
named 4 Pages of necron tactics in the second page of the fourm i think?
ps the models are cool too

PLAy TAU necrons cost too much in points and cash
and say if u hav 2 squads of warroirs kill 75% of there point value u lose the whole game automaticly. also necrons hav too many rules point value is so high like 300+ poins for a nightbringer. monolith realy expensive and its weak my rail guns can kill it in a turn or 2. So get tau and if u get tau DONT GET A O"SHAVA becoz u cant use combat specialist things like etherals,kroot,koot hound,krootox and gundrone squadron and limimet amouts of good thing
