    One piece of Wisdom (for all teh new guys)...

    Hello! This post will be a total waste of server space. It might even get closed right away! Let’s celebrate before the party is over :w00t:

    Being serious though, I want to extend warm HELLO (Errr, sorry – cold, ageless, emotionless: Heeeloooo) to all the Cron players out here. And that’s because after collecting WH army for close to two years I have decided to give the dark side a try. I have gotten a used Necron army that resembles closely the type of force I would envision myself using (Destroyers, FlyedOnes, Wraiths) and can’t wait for the box to arrive this week

    In the meantime, I have been nervously flipping through the codex, trying sample lists in the ArmyBuilder, reading this forum (silently and still in disguise), trying color schemes (will post sample shortly) and talking gently to my Sisters of Battle to reassure them that they are still my favorite girls… Ehm… :yes:

    In any case, what I would like to get from this thread is one advice, one sentence, one piece of wisdom that you would like to give to all the new Necron players out there. Please be brief, look to your first battles as Cron players, first rosters, first victories and tell us what mistakes not to repeat, what assumsions about Necrons are not true, what myths where shattered for you when the dice stopped rolling?

    Destroyers are your friend.

    That and it's fun to stack scarabs on top of someone's land raider. (still using the old scarabs) Assuming they give you permission of course.

    Myth: Necrons are slow.

    Yeah, um, no. With VoD, Monolith portal, Destroyers, hDestroyers, Scarabs, and Wraiths the Necron army is anything but slow.

    If you don't have a significant number of Warriors, you WILL lose quickly. They ARE your Phase Out protection.

    Despite being meqs, necrons are the most fun if treated as a 'horde' of sorts.

    Actually, thats rubbish. h.destroyers are the suck 99/100 times (I'll give you fighting TMCs is really painful without them), and even against termies you're better off with a well balanced force consisting of anything else.

    lets keep it constructive. ill have to disagree with that, as heavy destroyers give the army their only and much needed high strength, low ap fix.

    as for my sentence of wisdom:

    pretend that WBB doesn't exist, don't focus your tactics around it, and you will do just fine.
    VASSAL record:
    too many, gave up counting. rough estimates of 10% even steven, 25% omg i lostorz! and 65% PWNED NEWBS! ^^

    <Tossy> Crons are freaking invincible!

    All true.

    @SmokWawelski: Take a look around the Necron Forum and see who contributes regularly. These are the people from whom to take advice. If there is any disagreement, it should've been brought up before this thread.
