i have a friend who keeps saying that heavy destroyers are better than wraith's I say Wraith's kick ass but what do u guys think.
I don't see how they can be compared. They're two entirely different units with entirely different purposes.
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

Wha?!?!?....Why are you even comparing these units? Their not even the same type. Heavy Destroyers should be used to take out tanks and threatning units '(like the opposing HQ) since they have an AP of 2. Wraiths shouldbe used as an accompiment to your leader (A Destroyer lord w/res. orb). These are two entirely different units and should not be compared.
If you mean a Destroyer and a Wraith, as they are both fast attck, there is a thread on that subject right on the front page.
If I had to pick, I think I would go with Wraith, maining for the INV save, that can really help with Phase Out, and people who know about them spend ( sometimes ) a lot of time trying to kill them, and while they are worried about the Wraith's I can be doing ..... other thing :yes:Originally Posted by ATWA
-i wouldn't take either, as scarabs can do a wraiths job, but better, and heavy destroyers are entirely pointless due to guass.
-only time to take HD's ever is when facing a godzilla nid list/ terminator list
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
id say wraith, its supporting a main weakness in necrons, that is cc. The heavy destroyers, like tiaxrulesall said, are pointless due to the gauss weapons rule. However, i see that a squad of 10 flayyed ones will be just as good as 3 wraiths for that matter.

I could agree with the flayyed ones on paper, but everytime I use them in my army they never do much, and everytime I use wraiths they kill well over what you pay for them. It is most likely the way i which I play , mybe it is just me..... :cry:Originally Posted by whiteshields1830
Realistically Destroyers are the best. Wraiths suffer from small unit size and lack of guns (though they are really good in CC).
Heavy Destroyers are only good for tank hunting, they cost a bomb and have small unit size.
Normal destroyers are one of the Necrons best units, along with the monolith and C'tan.
You take Wraiths because you like the models and want to use them, I do, otherwise I cannot justify them.
I agree with you, but don't you think you need something in your army for CC ? Even if it is only 3 models ? I sit my wraiths back and wait to see if one of my troops go's CC, then run the wraiths in to help out.Originally Posted by The_Outsider
But I do think Destroyers are the best unit we have ( aside from C'tan which I have not used yet ) :book:
Heavy Destroyers are far from pointless. Gauss doesn't help against units with 2+ saves. Heavy Destroyers are also the best unit necrons have for killing vehicles... especially medium armor vehicles like predators or dreadnaughts.
