If you must take Ghost Arks... 1500pts :-)

Post  Lore Weaver on Thu Dec 22, 2011 10:09 am

I'm a bit crestfallen now. Both Night Scythes and Doom Scythes don't have Quantum Shielding... *sniff* My 4 Night Scythe list is getting hucked. I might go Immortals on foot with Crypteks of Destro or Destro + Transmog. <tangent> The Cryptek models are terrible, and the finecast for them is bad too </tangent>

Anyway... I was inspired to write the Necron Armour 13 Spammy List. Here goes.

1500 pt Total


HQ---

1) Anrakyr 165 Barge +80
Court 3xCrypteks of Destro, one with Pulse = 125
= 245 + 125 = 370

2) Lord with Scythe on a Barge = 180
Court 3xCrypteks of Destro, one with Pulse = 125
= 180 + 125 = 305

HQ Total = 675

Troops

1) 5xWarriors in an Ark = 65 + 115 = 180
2) 5xWarriors in an Ark = 65 + 115 = 180
3) 5xWarriors in an Ark = 65 + 115 = 180

= 540

Heavy
1) Annihilation Barge = 90
2) Annihilation Barge = 90
3) Annihilation Barge = 90

= 270

Army Total = 1485 (enough for Mindshackle or a 2+ save on plain-jane barge lord)

---

Crypteks join Warrior squads and float around in their arks, close enough that should one pop, the other two can rebuild the unit. Of course, they can also bee-line for objectives.

That makes 8 armour 13 threats, all of which are kinda scary to look at.

To make this list, I'd need to buy.... 2 more Crypteks, 3 more Barges, and 3 Ghost Arks.

Mmmm... sooooo affordable O_O $40x3 + $60x3 + $20x2

Cost for the whole army...
40x5, 40x2, 20x6, 60x3 = 200 + 80 + 120 + 180 = $580

Seems like a decent shooty army. Everything has Armor 13, so you negate a lot of shooting.

I think would require a lot of play testing. Feels a lot like a "bubble" list. you wouldn't want to press too hard or forward with your command barges, as they are going to be alone and without support. so you'd need to hang back with them and counter charge stuff that was coming for your arks and barges. Tables with lots of cover/terrain will be your bane.

overall looks like it would be a fun and quick army to play.
