Hey, im new to the necrons and warhammer for that matter, and i was wondering wats some good beginner equimpent for my necron lord?
Well, you will want a res orb. Then you want diferent things depending apon the point value.
well it depends on what role you want him to perform. tell us an maybe we can be of more help.
well i was thinking along the lines of clse combat, or a balanced set.
What does the rest of your army look like? As this will determine what your lord needs to be decked out in.
I go for an expensive lord:-
Phase shifter, phylacetry, res.orb,warscythe-195 points
I like this set-up as it means I have some hope of beating enemy heroes in CC, also the lord holds the army together with his orb.
Generally the first choice to be made is whether you want your Lord accompanying your troops or your faster elements (Wraiths or Destroyers). Footslogging or Destroyer Body should be your first choice.
Most people would then agree that a Res Orb is simply too valuble NOT to be taken, what with things like guard ordinance or other nasties denying your WBB.
Then there is the option of Warsythe versus Staff of Light. The choice here is generally dependant on how many invulnerable saves you think you will come accross. My belief is normally the Staff of Light is more than enough (and cheaper) and gets you a useful shooting attack too. However that's not to say the Warscythe isn't a great weapon too, particularly if you think youur going to be playing Eldar/Dark Eldar/ Daemon Heavy Chaos. Howeever for me 9 times out of 10 I'd say the Staff of Light is great.
The rest of the choice is up to you now. If you want to be challenging enemy heroes a Phase Shift and Phylactery might be a good choice. However if you want your Lord more in a support role (where I feel they best perform) a good choice is veil of Darkness. Then you can pull a squad of Immortals with you and zip up to enemy lines, or conversely pull a squad of your warriors out of the clutches of those Genestealers.
If you decide more clearly on what you want your Lord to do, talk to us and I'm sure someone will help you design one specifically.
Im mostly looking for him to be sort of a support unit, but if the enemy reaches he should be able to kill most any troop that comes his way
It depends on the size of the game. For 2K games I field two. One to stand around with a res orb and a Staff of Light and the other with a destroyer body, res orb, warscythe and phylactery. Destroyer Lord goes with my 3 wraiths to mo down pretty much anything. Wraiths are uber fast and uber strong. This combo gives you over 15 attacks on the charge with something like 4 with no save.
