Today I went to my friends played medusa V game. I have about with wargear for lord 1000pt army he has bout 600. His list
1 devilfsh fire warriors in devil
3 stalth suits
1 crisis suit with bout 6 bodyguard of drones
my full army
9 scarab bases
just add 12 kroot and a marker drone
I was sorely disapointed that I couldn't take my destroyers so I decided on 3 more warriors rather than 4 scarab swarms and since we played on a small map the 500 pt recommended. I didn't think I needed a VOD that I usually take for added mobility I do a flying circus with warriors. He had no insta kill weps so no need for res orb. I was doing okay I simply marched forward trying to kep buildings/trees between me and him killed off his stealth team. his crisis suit was a constant thorn in my side but kept marching forward. he had tanked shocked me with his armor so I was in cc his crisis suit joined in I had taken about 7 losses by then I killed his bodyguard of drones his crisis suit broke his devilfish ran but I had him cornered but he had iriduim armor on his crisis who i fired all my shots at in cc I lost about 3 guys I did not wound him he escaped and I futily tried to -cut him off but he outmanouveed me and deployed his fire warriors out of the devil. I had no choice but to march towards him but squad with lord was killed lord continued on other squad advancing lord wounded his crisis in melee lord died. shots poured into warriors lord get wbb kills 2 fire wariors killed again squad allmost to phase out lod fails wbb squad dead
I lost all my warriors and lord killed
wounded crisis 1
So does anyone have advice on what I can do to beat him or different list I should choose.
And a few more questions my friend took a hit and a wound from lord negate drone armor sv so his crisis took hit failed save. He then said the drone got killed I argued the point that if his crisis took the hit and failed wouldn't he take the wound instead of just saying since my crisis faild sv this drone will die. And can a lord be equipped with a warscythe he said it wasn't in amory so I couldn't give it to my lord.

Lords can have a Warsythe. Shield drones have that same toughness and normal save as the unit they are equipped to.
the way you've written the lists is confusing. Just write both out in full and leave it at that.
tau are fairly easy to beat, I normally start by taking out the biggest weapons and working my way down. That usually means killing broadsides & hammerheads, then the crisis suits..
if i was playing that necron list i would pump all the warriors fire into the HQ to get rid of the drones, then hit him with an Instant death weapon, or something that penetrates his armour.
Why couldnt you take destroyers?
Dark Elves - Game #28 vs High Elves: Draw
W L D
21 5 5
12 firewarriors in devilfish
1 devil fish
1 crisis suit
6 gun drones as crisi bodyguard
and the reason is that two squads and lord you need to make it a legal game cost 460 pts without wargear and a squad of destroyers is 150 pts so that would put me over 500 pts. The only thing that coukd penetrate his armor was my lord in cc and with iridium armor he had 2+ saves.
1 more question can scarabs move over impassable terrain or jump on top of buil;dings

I acctually think its worth it with Scarab swarms. For ex. At first round they turbo boost to behind a obstacle and being a thorn in their side (They want to shoot out warriors but they have some swarms ready to assault next round which can cause trouble). This means that the Tau wont fire on warriors until round 2 (asuming that Necrons get first round).
At round 2 the Scarabs rush out and assault the crisis (if possible) and hold him for maybe 1 or 2 rounds. And when he gets loose he will have tons of Warriors waiting for him.
As for the list my suggestion would be:
Troops: 10x Warriors (Lord)
Fast: 3x Scarab swarms
However: if u dont like the swarms then u can go for some skills for your Lord like Phase shifter. Remember that your warriors can shoot out the devilfish, so sometimes its more usefull to stand still and shoot at 24 rather than 2 shots at 18 (move 6)
Good luck at next match!!!
Thanks alot spiritknight so then i will do that next time I could probably pull off 4 bases with the extra points from dropping 3 warriors. I was thinking about taking scarabs but decidd if I had enough warriors I could just push the advance in a long line for each squad. And evantually he would run out of places to hide.
Just to clarify scarabs count as skimmers can turbo boost move 12 inch and can hop on top of buildings and move over impassable terrain just like destroyers?
Since they count as jetbikes u can fly over terrain however im not 100% sure of what terrain u can jet over. And you can turbo boost 24, but it must be a straight line and u cant do anything else.
They move and fight like Jetbikes per the Scarabs entry in Codex: Necrons, period. So consider them jetbikes for those purposes.Originally Posted by SpiritKnight

best bet avoid 500 point games with the Necron. They really have little chance, and are not fun to play. Necrons benifit from large games more than any other army. Anything below 1000 points is not a fair contest.
Unless you play 40k in 40min rulez.
