View Full Version : What can you make out of...

I've never been a big fan of necrons, I tired them once using a friends army and they didn't really apeal to me. This remained until recently when I started playing dark crusade for the pc. I've actually begun to show some interest in them, which brings me to the point of this post.

What could you make from 2 necron battle forces and a destroyer lord box? I'm guessing about an 1,500 point army. What are some of your ideas for an army list, wargear options, etc.

Thanks for reading.

Off the top of my head i think its a bit more than that; 2K? Necron equipment is basicly the same - res orb, gaze of flame, etc, etc.

I think it would be ~1500pts +whatever the scarabs are worth. Wouldnt be too bad of a force actually.

Thats basically what I use in smaller point games, I also however take a footslogging lord to give some needed res orb assistance.
You may also want to get some heavy destroyers, or convert the normal ones you will have in the battleforce for heavy destroyers in case you face terminators at all.

I think I would make a list that looked like:
lord with ressurection orb, war sythe, destoyer body
3 squads of twelve warriors
2 squads of ten warriors
3 Destroyers
3 Destroyers

I thinK that's about 1500, maybe more. What do you gentlemen think about this list?

Its got everything you'll need for low point battles, personally, I would try and get a few scarabs in there as they are invaluable in low point games for tying up those nasty units that crop up.
Also I like to take large squads of around 20 warriors, but there is nothing wrong with the army you have, just watch out for 2+ saves.

Let me see...that would give you, what...

1 Lord (200 points)
56 Warriors (1008 points)
6 Destroyers (300 points)
14 Scarab Bases (168 points, 224 if you add Disruption Feilds)

So, that gives you enough for 1500 points with some models left over. Pretty good core to the army, I'd say. Though you'll want to add some Immortals in to bring it up to 2000 points.

I got the 2 necron battle forces to start my necron army. I'm adding to that 3 heavy destroyers, 2 tomb spiders and of course a lord. That takes it up to 2000 points not using up all the scarabs.

What did they change about Scarabs? I remember when they were the little 20 point nuclear blasts which blew up any vehicle they touched. What changed?

They're now super-fast little swarm bases, like Tyranid Rippers that move as Jetbikes, with Deep Strike and the option for Disruption Feilds.
