Necron 1850.New to tabletop.

If it ain't human, and it ain't from the warp, then it must be Xenos.

Necron 1850.New to tabletop.

Post by kharnafex » Fri Feb 23, 2018 3:43 pm


I have been a fan of 40k since I was in middleschool and have recently been able to finally pick up the tabletop. I am using battlescribe and have read a few guides on how to have a "battle forged" list. This is my first attempt so any and all suggestions are appreciated. Very green here.

Thanks for your time.

++ Spearhead Detachment +1CP (Necrons) [37 PL, 721pts] ++

+ HQ +

Catacomb Command Barge [10 PL, 162pts]: Tesla Cannon, The Veil of Darkness, Warscythe

+ Heavy Support +

Annihilation Barge [7 PL, 153pts]: Gauss Cannon

Doomsday Ark [10 PL, 203pts]

Doomsday Ark [10 PL, 203pts]

++ Vanguard Detachment +1CP (Necrons) [59 PL, 1127pts] ++

+ HQ +

Created with BattleScribe

Btw I have a 2000point list if that is the suggested route.

no infantry hardly, wow brave move.

I think you'll find it hard to move to objectives

your characters have no troops to buff, and no screens from enemy firing to keep them alive

The CCB is terribad against blobs (it only has 4 attacks) or anything with an invuln save

you got the 2 big cannons, but all an enemy needs to do is keep tying them up and you either can't shoot or have to fall back and are then shooting on low power.

all in all a VERY immobile list that would be shot off the table relatively easily by most armies

not wholly your fault as the index is quite weak currently, but you are not playing to any of the army strengths

big blobs of troops with characters in there to make the troops better.

Destroyers, immortals and even 20 man warriors ... is the current "most survivable" meta we have
