Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was thinking about this combination today, and so I thought I would bring this out here to see what you think. Please excuse me if this has been donw to death.
Joining a units of as many Scarabs one can fit into thier list.
What I can see in this is a super fast unit that will assult any unit, Take wonds, and then the Lord will deal an equal amount right back.
Please tell me what you guys think.

2000pts Skaven 0/4/0 I'll get there enventually

"I have a new ship, i'ts called the Lollipop." "I have no Information on that ship" "It's new, just been commissioned, It's a good ship!"
Sounds interesting, however I think that 3 wraiths would be more effective. But that's just my idea.
Try it out possibly both ways and let us know how it went.

heard of this idea and sounds damn good! only problem i can see is the lord needing to join the unit and moving too fast for the support, and having to stay with the scarabs in combat until a)they die, or b) the other ppl die. could take a while. actually, its prob only a problem for me bcoz i like to zoom things around really quick without thinking!
also, is there no problem with a character joining swarms? it seems sorta... unnatural (prob a bad word to use for the situation....). are there any problems with this? if not, then i guess a broodlord with a dead bodyguard could join rippers? tough call, seems too odd to me...

This tactic is not unheard of and is only circumstance in which I would equip a Lord with the LF. Go for it.

IMO this is a good combo, but it doesn`t have a use in necron army
Scarabs are good on their own keepien an enemy unit in CC, as they are not to expensive they do not draw much attencion. Necron lord on destroyer body is more useful bringin the res orb where is needed or providing a counter charge when you get assualted. Without a phase shifter your lord and scarabs can get killed pretty quick ( a simple power fist ).
But on the other side the scarabs are cheap.
My advice is give a lord a resrection orb, if you wanna use it for more purouses than charging into enemy; and give the lord a phase shifter if you wanna him to do a straight forward charge into enemy ( and you have also points left to add a gaze of flame which is going to be useful when you get countercharged )
IMO lightinig field won`t do as much fireworks as you expect it to do. Models with lower toughtness will get killed by scarabs any way, and SM and alike with their save will not even notice the lightining fieled hits. When you have a lightining filed on destroyer lord you can`t have a shifter and orb - which in my opinion are the best combination.
