Any notable battles between Necrons and any IG regiment without the aid of the astartes? I don't really care about who won, just the battles themselves.

Dead Men Walking has the Death Korps against Necrons, never actually read it though, so i don't know if Marines ever show up or not.

they don't and it is a fantastic book. told from the perspective of a PDF guardsman who gets drafted into the death korp. (they needed more meat shields)

Imperial Armour 12 "The Fall of Orpheus" has the Orphean War as the backdrop, with DKoK fighting Necrons and eventually losing an entire sector to them. The book has loads of background stories of lost battles.

How are we defining 'notable'?


Caves of Ice features the Valhallan 597th defeating (sort of...) Necrons on Simia Orichalcae, although it was little more than a skirmish really.

Codex: Necrons has Anrakyr the Travellers Legions crushing Cadian 207th on Morrigar and Cadian 185th on Kaldrakh.

There's Lord commander Brannigan outsmarting them due to the discovery of the necron's kill limit.
