i have a 750 pts fight against a necron army and i dunno wich creatures i should take. can someone give me a help.
TMCs and warriors, the warriors will almost never be instakilled and necrons have more or less nothing that can stop a rampaging hive tyrant.

Tyrant with Psychic Scream and a whole bunch of Gaunts... Perhaps some 'Stealers as well. The tactic is to kill the Necron so that they don't get saves or WBB of any kind, and this is how You can manage to do it:
Assault the Necron with multiple units, either Gaunts + 'Stealers or Gaunts + Tyrant.
Tyrant/'Stealers inflict the casualties winning the combat, Gaunts provide additional outnumbering bonus to lower the odds of a succesful Morale check by the enemy. Enemy fails Morale, You in all probability make a succesful Sweeping Advance, and that's a dead Necron unit with no saves or WBB whatsoever.
Yes, works with any creatures with RenClws or any TMC, but 'Stealers and a Tyrant would be the only ones I'd consider in a game this small.
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
Necrons have a tough time in small points battles. This is due to the fact that they have the most expensive basic troops choice in the game. His troops alone will cost him almost half his army points (360). Add in a basic Lord (Lord/Res Orb), and he's at 2/3 of his cost (500).
If I were the Necron player, I'd take 20 Warriors, a Lord with the Res Orb, and 5 Destroyers and try to take out your fast units from range. The Tyrant will pose them the biggest problem, as in low points games, there is nothing to deal with that 2+ armor save. Give the Tyrant WB so you can at least bypass the 3+ saving throw of the Necrons. There isn't much you can do about the WBB rule, since he'll probably keep his Necrons as close to the Orb as possible. Lord's are also ICs, so you can't pick them out from shooting. Rending Claws (Warriors, Genestealers) and any TMC hits deny armor saves, so if they are out of range of the Res Orb, they're just dead.
Uzi and Baratos are both right. You need to swarm him. Provide more targets than he can possibly kill before you close in HtH. My above army can lay down 35 Gauss shots at 24", 58 at 12" (but with Leapers, unless you are crossing alot of Difficult Terrain, you should never have to worry about rapid fire)
A Hive Tyrant w/ Ext Carapace, WB (possibly wings), a unit of Stealers, and the rest basic Hormogaunts should wipe him out pretty easily.
