1000pts Necron Tournament List

Post by zigginator » Thu May 26, 2016 8:12 am

Hi all,

First of all sorry for the Necrons, I promise I chose my army before I knew the cheese.

Now that-that's solved. I played my first tournament a couple weeks ago, the lists where in house compilation only 750pts. It was supposed to be a newbie tournie so I didn't take the friend maker attachment (reclamation legion, decurion). The winner of said tournament took the friend maker....

So what happened was I lost a lot of games.... For many reasons. That aside I'm entering another tourney in a couple months 1000pts, the only rules are no unbound and the rest as normal.

So this time I don't want to make friends just war... Here's my list.

Reclamation Legion:
Overlord 80pts
Immortals x5 85pts
Warriors x10 130pts
Warriors x10 130pts
Tomb Blades x3 54pts + Nebuloscopes 6pts

Destroyer Cult:
Destroyer Lord 110pts
Destroyers x3 120pts
Destroyers x3 120pts
Destroyers x3 120pts

That brings me to 955pts.

Do i drop the Nebuloscopes for a Heavy Destroyer? Or what wargear for either lord should i purchase?
I'm lacking high strength weapons, is Gauss enough to do the job?
Should i take an Annihilation Nexus (410pts) instead of the Destroyer Cult(470 pts)?

I borrow my mates Necrons sometimes and run the following as a base

6 Wraiths whip coils Destroyer Lord with invisibility staff Orikin (Kynoptek harvest)

The rest as CAD and go for 5 man Immortals Gauss squads in NightScythes points permitting

The whole thing is geared round making the wraiths nigh on unkillable 3++ re-rolling 1's then 4+ and you can buy the destroyer lord funky armour I do believe to make it a 2+ re-rollable armour save Orikin then goes into super mode as well.

So you have 12" movement Fearless Preferred Enemy (re-roll 1's for attack / wound) and a chance at Zealot from the warlord table.

As a life choice it will make you very unpopular but hey it will batter fry and dice your Decurion suggestion anyday ;)

Now we're getting somewhere...

Hey mate appreciate the suggestion.

From memory all the crazy staff choice's are from the 6th edition codex? The Canoptek Harvest is a good choice though it is vulnerable if the Spyder gets killed or left behind.
I do have concerns about flyers also.
Taking CAD with immortals in flyers is dope + a destroyer lord is awesome though. Totally thinking about doing that! Thanks.
