I don't know about everyone else, but I had to reread the part of the 6th Ed. Force Organisation Chart that said that at 2000 points or more, we get up to 4 HQ choices. Crypteks, and Royal courts in general, are now very spammable. I was wondering what everyone else thinks of this. Anyone cooking up any lists to take advantage of the new rule?

I'm sure once all my friends pick up the 6th edition rules and plan out armies, we'll have a few games. I have thought of a heavy HQ army using 5 HQs (one being Obyron for free) with 4 groups of royal courts and throw my 2 troop choices in Night Scythes.

Only time will tell how powerful it will turn out. Probably similar to the Grey Knights in the Dan and Dave/Lloyd battle report.

I'm not sure about this tactic, lords are too expensive to spam but crypteks seem like they would be fun (especially if you combine 3 with voltic staffs and one with the veil of darkness). but in sixth ed I've seen a dramatic decrease in the use of tanks and almost all Necrons are now very anti-tank if you run into one. Now you want to invest your points into troops because almost every mission is objectives.

royal court spam is awesome but VERY expensive....
i had 2 (5 lords with scythes,weaves, shifters and one with an orb...4 destro teks and a veil tek) in ghost arks
which was about 750pts a court!
but very survivable in CC
they r a scary unit so everyone is like 15 scythe atks? 2+ saves? 3+ invuln? Oh S***
try a few games with them i guarantee u will like the results
