I think this Necron list is cool...

Post  Lore Weaver on Tue Feb 21, 2012 11:22 am

Basic Idea of list is Warriors.... Lots of 'em...

HQ --
1. Imotek 225
Court
2xLord with Scythe, Orb = 150

= 375

2. Overlord 90
Scythe 10, Phaeron 20, Scarabs 15
2xLord with Scythe = 90
= 225

HQ = 600

Troops ---

1. 20xWarriors = 260 (two lords join)
2. 20xWarriors = 260 (two lords join)
3. 10xWarriors = 130 + 115 Ghost Ark = 245
4. 10xWarriors = 130 + 115 Ghost Ark = 245

Troops Total = 1010

Fast Attack ---

1. 5xScarabs = 75
2. 5xScarabs = 75

= 150

Heavy ---

1. Annihilation Barge = 90
2. 3xTomb Spyders = 150

= 240

-----

One Phaeron Lord per 20 warrior unit. Having two Scythe Lords burried in each squad makes it a bit scarier to assault. With two ghost arks supporting the foot units, the warriors will often stay at full strength. If anything gets too close without assaulting, they'll face 40 shots from the warriors, and 30 shots from each ghost ark.

The idea is to pump out a lot of guass shots and have scarabs and spyders support the army.

One change could be to have 2 units of 2 Tomb Spyders, drop the Annihilation Barge, and take gloom prism and/or fabricator arrays. The Spyders are there more to support the scarabs and provide a counter assault threat.

This list has a lot of potential fire-power it can bring down on an enemy. Another possible change would be to drop the Ghost Ark compliment to 5 warriors each, squeeze some points for 2 Destro Crypteks each, and look for some savings such that I can have a 10+ strong unit of Flayed Ones.

2000 points

Are you building this? Or is this just a what-if?

I'm only a battle box and some Tomb Spyders away ... Razz

My purchase priorities are still Night Scythe (maybe 2, depending on how painting 1 goes), and Triarch Stalker.

$125 for 20 warriors, a ghost ark, 5 more scarabs, and 5 deathmarks/immortals seems like a good deal.

Did you see the latest BoLS batrep? That's how I would picture games involving this army to go. Necron player shoots, kills a few guys, gets assaulted and dies. I think at 2000 points it's seriously lacking in anti-tank. It looks like too little of everything. If you wanna do the AV13 wall, then do it! In a 2000 point game, no army will have a problem killing 3 vehicles. If you wanna do the foot horde, then do it! This seems like a wishy-washy little of both that is lacking in both areas. That's just my impression. I'd be happy to cook up a 2000 point list to face you...in battle!

I prefer a list with a strong AV13 component over footie 'crons, yes.

You wouldn't spend 230pts on two Ghost Arks to support warriors on foot? If that's the case, then you gotta go all immortals on foot, as warriors don't bring enough to the table. S5 shooting >>> S4 shooting.

Footie 'crons need to rely on glancing hits and scarabs support, IMO. I think it might work, but I'd much rather spend $130 on a Night Scythe and a Triarch Stalker (assuming those models ever come out. I'm hoping April now...)

I don't mind the Arks (or maybe an Ark) to support warriors on foot. I just don't think you have enough warriors for 2000 points. 60 seems like too few. I think you have too many bells and whistles and not enough ooomph.

I also think foot lists need strong counterassault capability. That was noticably lacking in the batrep as the Blood Angels player basically walked all over the Necron guy once he got close. I would take a unit of wraiths as a mobile counterassault element. A destroyer lord would be cool too.
