In small armies avoid the Nightbringer.
So, Lord and 20 warriors to start, that is 500 points there.
then Immortals, more warriors and then maybe Swarms (that can get you to 1000)
They are all (fairly) poket friendly.
Destroyers are great, but expensive same with the Monolith (gets you to 1500).
Unfortunately, Necrons really need to get to higher point games to be effective.
I use Boltgun Metal and Midnight Blue with Brazen Brass and Scorpion Green to highlight. Those colours look good, but the codex has some really good ideas on colour combos. I like the metalic colours.
Thanx much. i value the feed back. When should i use the nightbringer? wouldn't having a god rush into the enemy army and kill the **** out of an army be good, while the rest of your amry move up? And if i died it's 1 % out of 100...Phase back isn;t that bad with it, unless the avoid the god.
Definitly get the lord and 20 warriors to start with. After that I suggest Destroyers before Immortals so you can get some better range and speed.
Immortals arent that pocket friendly at all as a squad of 10 will cost you around 100 USD.
Most necron players that I know (myself included) never take the Nightbringer or the Deciever in less than 1500-1750 pt games, merely because it restricts your ability to spend more points on cool stuff like Monoliths, destroyers, and numerous other units.
It also is seen as quite unsportsmanly to have one of the stargods in a low points game.
"I am the architect of fate!"
-definatly go for a battleforce as it gets you the warriors, scarabs and destroyers that you need. also get a necron lord.
-for later shopping i would recomend a second batttleforce, another lord, and a monolith.
that would bring you up to 1850.
Procrastination- hard work often pays off over time, but laziness always pays off now.
Indifference- it takes 43 muscles to frown, and 17 to smile, but none to just sit there with a dumb look on your face.
-Votewar 40K III= 1st place
-Votewar 40k mini= 2nd place
-Votewar fantasy 2= 2nd place
Though you need to understand that your Nightbringer doesnt move that fast, so rushing into the fray would either mean he is spending a couple of turns just trying to get into combat while he takes a ton of fire from the field and may end up dieing before earning his points back. Although this may seem like the most likely to occur a more experienced player will simpyl ignore him and just knock down the rest of your warriors, especially in a 1000 point game.
A smart enemy will phase you out by like turn 4 if you use Nightbringer in under 1500 point games. And he is right, Nighty is kindda cheeze, so learn to win without him.
Destroyers run about 35 bucks each after tax in Canada, so that is pretty expensive, but the battle force is a great idea.
Try using proxies of the diff units to see which ones you like before you buy them.
Yeah what you need is destroyers and more warriors. there is nothing these guys cant do. And 2 lords is a good think one that marches with the army the other well with the viel Use Your Imagination. Necron warriors and Destroyers they can do everything you have no need for anything else maybe some scarabs.

Why does no one ever mention Pariahs on these boards? I thought they were good?
Pariahs are good but they are damn expensive (money and points) and they aren't necrons (no WB so opponents tend to ignore them or (more likely) destroy them and at 36 points a piece- that hurts!
They also suffer from low initive whish when you are armed with warscythes is kind of the point, they are only worth it in 2000 point or larger games and even then they need to be used with utmost care (if they are used right they can be utterly devastating).
