Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hmm after a big(in points 4331) game versus my tyranid army the necros i realize that necros suffer hard in close combat!. Dont tell "use pariahs" the only thing that save them is ress. orb (no the pariahs).So cause i play exept from tyranids also necrons can u tell me some secreats of the close combat using necrons?.
MEAT IS MURDER
no one is denying that they are sucky compared to other races in Cc
but they DO have the ultimate Cc unit...the nightbringer.....
Nightbringer sucks against nids, genestealers will rip him a new one.
You know what they say, if you dont like the weather in houston...go back to where you came from
Against 'nids, it probably isn't a good idea to use cc against them, especially with Necrons, who have lots of rapid firing mid range weapons. Even the small amount of cc tactics that can be employed by Necron players are jsut about useless. Swarming a nid player with scarabs won't do anything, his forerunners with take care of them in 1 turn, regardless of how many there are. Wraiths can't stand up to many attacks, and flayed ones advantage's (infiltration, deepstrike), are practically useless because who would want to deepstrike a cc unit into the middle of a nid army when you know you can't even assault until the next turn, while in the mean you are getting raped. I hope that convinces you not to use cc Necrons against Nids! Use Warriors! LOTS of warriors and destroyers.
I'll second that. Nothing a Necron Player can field cc-wise wil even slow up a 'nid army.
stand and shoot. and pray that they don't make ist into cc.
