2 "Silly" Necron Units

Post  Lore Weaver on Mon May 07, 2012 3:41 pm

Silly Unit #1 ---

I tried this against Beau on Friday Night, by game end, they killed 2 units of terminators in hand-to-hand.

Necron Overlord (I took Imotek, but I'm down on Imotek now, could take Trazyn or Zandrekh, or anything really)
Two Scythe Lords with Phase Shifters
5 Necron Warriors in a Ghost Ark

This unit can assault off of a 12" Ghost Ark move. With two or Three warscythes, it can be quite formidable, you can also pay 45 points for 3 sets of Mindshackle scarabs. The 3+ Invul saves are nice for soaking up some fist hits, otherwise, the warriors take the rest.

Kindof like putting a hand-hand royal court in a Ghost Ark, but here you keep the 5 warriors... and you're scoring!

-----

Silly Unit #2 (my fav, but waiting for a kit from Darren) Edit: Just picked it up, best $12 I ever spent.
Edit 2: aaaaand, it's painted.

Two Nekkid Wraiths 70pts
Destroyer Lord with Scarabs, Weave, Scythe 160pts
Destroyer Lord with Orb, Scarabs, Weave, Scythe 190pts.

Here you have a unit with majority toughness 6, two models with a 2+ save, two models with two wounds and a 3++ save, and it's kinda good in close combat. Kinda really good actually... options, +20 points for whip coils on the wraiths (although, I expect them to be dead by the time Close Combat rolls around).

Those 4 models would be happy assaulting anything in all of 40k.

Destroyer Lord goes down? Well... he gets back up on a 4+... including the orbless one as he's part of the unit. Ouchies.

I liked your "silly" ass unit. The only unit I thought was kinda just there was the Flayed ones. I think both those units work. Would the Destroyer/Wraith unit replace the flayed ones?

Ya, flayed ones are terrible (until they can assault off the deep strike...)
