The box set is pretty weak ( warriors, destroyers, scarabs ) , i'd recommend buying two box sets of warriors ( 12 warriors + 3 scarab swarms each ), a lord...and depending on how much more money you got, a destroyer squad and a tomb spider. I just got a tomb spider 2 days ago... and hes freakin awsome. I play this one guy who has a nasty DA chaplain ( 6 pw attacks + jet pack ) and either you can pay 40 for an orb at 6" or 55 for a unit and 12"...

I would suggest getting the battleforce,
10 immortals,
another box of warriors,
2 more destroyers or 3 if you want 2 squads of destroyers.
2-3 heavy destroyers,
1 monolith,
10 Pariahs

[OPTIONAL]
10 flayed ones,
3 wraiths
NightBringer
Deceiver

I know , it's expensive, but you don't have to get it immediately.

work your way to the 40 warriors, for every 20 warriors, get another elitesquad.

that was the army box set you were thinking off there! they relesed this when they done the codex revisions and brought in the current line of models last year.

darn why did i don't go for necs then oh yes i remember i was building a DA army * does an evil laugh * he-he-he-he.

now were was i oh yes now i have nearly finished that army i am working on my second it's between chaos or necs but frankly i like necs they just have a terminator look about them and they are awsome to be completely honest.

oh well * jumps back in to his YF-1S* now weres that Boss... :ph34r:

its stuff like the immortals that really kill you money wise.

UK prices here.

Battleforce (20warriors, 5 scarabs, 4 Destroyers) = £50
10 x Immortals = £50

Why they can't just produce a plastic set i don't know.

Well here in Canada the battleforce costs like 140$...but if you like them money is not a blocking obstacle... ;) Might start a 'Crons army in a distant future.

If they Lowered the prices, then they couldn't afford to pay Gavin Thorpe's Body guards....... (Wouldn't THAT be a shame? :ph34r:)

I've always found the Necron Battle Box/Force to be extremely limited, and it sorta angers me at the whole "You save ten bucks" Philosphy they have about them. However, just when I'm working up a good rant, I see the Cadian Battle force, which for the same 90$, is a Leman Russ, three Heavy Weapons Teams, and twenty or so Cadian Troopers.
