Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey guys and girls!
Im thinking of startin Necrons, basically could you let me know a thing or two about them? Their good/bad points, fluff, what drew you into them and the things that you should fear when playing a Necron army! Many thanks!

Well, as a general rule, fear Tau, but don't cower in their shadow. They can be beat, but it might take a bit of effort. What I like about 'crons is that even their most basic unit can cause all kinds of hell. Ever seen a standard issue trooper down a Land Raider? Not to mention their 'We'll be Back' ability.
Yeah i heard about their ability to pop vehicles! Sorry, what i meant was, if you play against Necrons what should you fear? Like is there any rock hard unit that as a Necron player, you wouldnt leave home without?
Well, no Necron player wants to leave their cozy little tomb world without a Ressurection Orb. And lots of standard Warriors to combat Phase Out.
aim for destroyers unless other things preocupy you, shoot lascannons at scarabs in the first turn if they're comeing in hot. but most immportant of all NB, decievers and monoliths are nothing but a blip on ur radar intill they are within 32 inches, if they get that close....you dead. or u better make it dead quick.
if possible target units that are away from monoliths and lords with heavy weapons. why u might ask? well they are whats saving thier butts from a quick phaze out, destroy lords as quick as possible and monoliths as i said before ignor if possible. under no sercumstances trust your gut, its wrong and what scares you is most likly a distraction
In the name of god impure souls of the living dead shal be banished into eturnal damnation. Amen.
Everyone seems to worship the monolith, it is a vehicle, i find that if you really really want to you can take any vehicle down in one turn, just concentrate all of your fire on it. So whats so special about it when it can be taken down in one turn? Lots of points to get popped by 3 Lascannons if you ask me. Explain this need for worship! Lol!
This isnt an aggressive post, im just curious to know how you can like a vehicle so much when it takes so little to destroy it.

The monolith is so retardedly tough 3 lascannons ain't that likely to stop it.
Thing is, immobilising it doesn't hurt it a great deal (even as a skimmer, it just sinks to the ground) it just reduces it maximum range.
Also as a skimmer you need 6's to hit it in CC.
You can never destroy all its weapons (thus it can never die from accumlative damage). The gauss flux arc can (potentially) destroy a closely deployed army on its own (and they aren't even its most powerful weapon).
It laugh in the face of any weapon that requires extra dice to do its damage (so assault cannons can't even scratch it and most melta weapons have a job), Brightlance's are laughed at.
It can deep strike in, and if it lands on you you move, not it.
Then you get its ability to re-roll WBB when you teleport a unit through its portal.
You get all this for less than the cost of a land raider.
Simply put it is so retardedly powerful for its points it owns, the disadvantage is is that its the Necron's only tank, so nearly all anti tank is heading its way.
3 lascannons is statistically not enough to destroy it in 1 turn.
But surely 5's glance 6's penetrate, it cant be that hard to kill? Meltas have trouble penetrating? I thought Meltas could bust any vehicle! Sorry Gauss Flux Arc? I am new to Necrons your going to have to paint a picture for me! Lol! What is its strongest weapon?
Thanks for the reply!

The living metal special rule basically means that you dont get extra dice when hitting so melta only gets the str + d6,
and statistically i believe every one in 46 bright lance hits penetrate(or destroy) it.
Lance is str 8 .
A flux arc is d6 str 5 ap4 hits per target unit or the particle whip, str 9 ap 3 ord blast.(not sure if this is allowed, if not mod pls

Its ok i read it now so feel free to delete it! 1 in 46? When it needs a 4+ to damage it? Are you sure about that? Lol!
