Hello Comet, Welcome to LO! and Welcome to the Necron Tomb!

I feel this looks like a solid list. Having more scarabs instead of d-fields seems like it would be a better idea since you have a decent anti-tank setup.

As far as the 21 extra points you have, Drop the lord's phylactery and take a minor scarab diet to drop the extra points.

Shouldn't this go in Army Lists? I feel like I missed something.....

This is actually a pretty solid list, PO count is good, decent anti-tank capability and yeah, its good overall.

Just bits and bobs of advice for unit tactics:

With the tomb spyder, spawn ONE scarab swarm only. Due the mixed units rule, the tomb spyder pretty much gains an additional 3 wounds at T6 (what a bargain for 55pts!). Spawn more than one scarab swarm and you'll lose the T6 advantage.

Keep your warriors squads close to the lord as possible, making the most of ResOrb BUT try to maintain 2" between each warrior model to minimise large template damage.

As Alzer suggests, lose the D-fields on the scarabs as its not really worth having it on only 6 scarabs. Instead, field more scarabs and use them to tie up and perhaps kill the pesky eldar specialists.

Everything else is good and relatively easy to use.

Happy purging-worlds-of-life!

Another list very similar to my own. I would drop the phylactery and warscythe for a gaze of flame and a chronmetron. Knocking your opponents charge bonuses and giving yourself a chance of avoiding getting cut down is a lot better than a warscythe and an iffy chance of getting on your opponents nerves. (if the lord dies generally hes gonna be surrounded by terminator equivelents so extra wounds aint gonna help you). I would also say freeing up some points some where to get some immortals would be a good idea. I never leave home without em but its up to you.
