I was thinking of starting a necron army, but using marine models
before you close this window, just listen
I was thinking of using the necron rules for a space marine army, but the marines are apparitions, spectres, ghosts. I reckon that rules wise it would fit pretty well, and i was going to paint the marines the same way those ghost things were painted for the LOTR game.
I was going to have Tactical Squad as Warriors, Librarian or Commander as Necron Lord, Bikes as Destroyers, Assault Squad as wraith, LRC as monolith, Terminators as Pariahs (sp?), Assault squad without jet pack as flayed ones OR scouts with CCW/BP
I'm having trouble thinking of what everything else can be? your help would be nice
Also general comments on the idea
I would say no. You would never be allowed to play in GW or at a tourney with that, there are issue with base sizes (LRC-'lith, termie-pariah, AS-wraith, bike-destroyer)
It wouldn't stickj with fluff or rules.
Sorry mate, but it's a definite no from me.

If you want an apparition type army, why not use the Legion of the Damned rules. That is what they are, after all. Another alternative is to use the traits which allow you to buy infiltrate for most of your infantry, and the one which gives a permenant 6+ invulnerable save.
The discrepancies between the necron rules and weaponry (particularly the automatic glance rule of gauss weapons) and Space Marine rules and weaponry (even if they are apparitions) are too great to feasably reconcile I think.

Why bother I'd just use the real thing
If you thinking of starting a Necron force then just OK representation with your opponent first to see if you like them...

I agree with what Tunisia said. Base size is a big thing, and i dont think it works well fluffwise either. Sorry, another no from me.
if u want apparitions, use Legion of the Damned. I dont think theyd work well as sm's
