    I normally play 2000 points and I run a typical Necron army without a Ctan.

    I have normally played with 2 squads of 3 Destoyers... I just recently tried the 5 Destoyers and 1 heavy Destroyer. I only use 1 cuz I only have one.

    I have found that 5 Destoyers are a pretty hefty force against Strong Infantry and Light Vehicles... where as the Heavy Destoyer puts down the heavy tanks or Heavy characters.


    What is your preference?

    I field 3 destroyers and 2 heavys. Like you say, the destroyers dish out alot of shots, while I like the second heavy for my own 'twin linked' effect. If I'm shooting at a vehicle, I want to make sure it goes down the first time. I also field a screen of 10 scarabs around this formation as a non-necron shield (shifting them to the front as they die).

    Kind of like this:

    s
    s s s s s
    s d d d s
    s h h s

    it's my own, highly mobile, resiliant, tank equvilent unit. Sure it costs 400 pts, but look at all that firepower! Shove a lord on dest body with res orb in there & you even get 'wbb' rolls vs. str. 10.

    another point...

    For those people who get one heavy destroyer to join their destroyer squads, that doesn&#39;t work... they are 2 seperate squads. You need a minimum of 3 destroyers in a squad. You can have as few as 1 heavy destroyer in a squad. These squads can not be joined to form one squad of 4. (these are not marines on bikes)

    For those who get only one heavy destroyer... you need a unit of the same type within 6" to use WBB. Doesn&#39;t matter if you&#39;re surrounded by warriors and destroyers and a lord with destroyer body and resurection orb, unless there is another heavy destroyer within 6", you&#39;re just not coming back.

    That&#39;s the way I see in, anyway.

    Cheers.

    Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

    Good point. You need at least two in any army. Even a Tomb Spider won&#39;t do you any good in that case. I&#39;m thinking about getting two HD and three D. One of my friend&#39;s plays Eldar, while the other plays IG. So Tank and Infantry Destruction is a must in my army.
