Hello all. Apologize if this is not the correct forum for this post.

I am new to Necrons and trying to put together a 1500 point army. Army consists of:


1 Overlord Warscythe
Catacomb Command Barge, Gauss Cannon

1 Destroyer Lord, Warscythe; Sempiternal Weave; Mindshackle Scarabs

1 Harbinger of Destruction Solar Pulse
1 Harbinger of Destruction
1 Harbinger of Destruction

9 Immortals, Tesla Carbines
8 Immortals, Tesla Carbines
5 Warriors

10 Canoptek Scarabs
6 Canoptek Wraiths Particle Caster x3; Whip Coil x3
1 Annihilation Barge Gauss Cannon
1 Annihilation Barge Gauss Cannon
1 Annihilation Barge Gauss Cannon



Problem is I only found half of the models for the army on the GW site, what models do I use for these guys:


1 Overlord Warscythe, Catacomb Command Barge, Gauss Cannon
1 Destroyer Lord, Warscythe; Sempiternal Weave; Mindshackle Scarabs

1 Harbinger of Destruction Solar Pulse
1 Harbinger of Destruction
1 Harbinger of Destruction


10 Canoptek Scarabs

6 Canoptek Wraiths Particle Caster x3; Whip Coil x3

Rumor has the wraiths coming out next month and the Battleforce on the 25th of Feb
20 Necron Warriors
5 Scarabs (Old Models)
5 Immortals
1 Ghost Arc


the harbinger Crypteks can be kitted from deathmark heads, ark overlord and various other bits.

All of those models are available or should be. Here you go.

Scarabs come with most boxes that you buy. It does seem wraiths have been taken off but the rumors state they should be getting new models soon. I'd check ebay.

The Lycheguard Shields can make a convincing Destroyer Lord Hover thingey.Plus you get a lord with a scythe in the Barge box if you decide on getting a finecast OL. However, I'm not a good converter, so the body might be iffy.

Thanks for replies. OK, so looks like there are models for everything except Wraiths and Harbingers. Wraiths are coming out in Feb. What do I use for the Harbingers?

I thought crypteks had models o.o

edit: All cryptek harbingers have staff weapons, so wysiwyg isn't really much of an issue.

so crypteks (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat700002a&prodId=prod1380035a) = harbingers?

Yep. The Royal Court is composed of up to 5 Crypteks, which can be specialized into Harbingers. They are one and the same

Yeah, evertything on your list is available through the GW site, except the Wraiths. The general concensus is they are getting remodeled. The only other ones would be the Scarabs, which are only available in the Warrior box set (You get 3 scarabs with the 12 warriors).

As for your Harbingers, the only real difference between the different Harbinger would be paint style (and whatever Harbinger-specific gear you want to custom-build). The Cryptek kit even comes with a Solar Pulse as an option.

Yep, each Cryptek specializes into a different Harbinger.

You have a Cryptek. He then decides what kind of Harbinger he wants to be when he grows up.
Harbinger of Despair
Harbinger of Destruction
Harbinger of Transmutation

Etc. Etc.

Luckily those nice people at Forgeworld now let you buy Scarabs for only slightly less than the cost of Warriors + Scarabs. (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuff/NECRON_SCARAB_SWARMS.html)

...wait...
