My Necron army is very much in the old style, they are relentless killers who canted be reasoned with. Below are a come pictures of some of the completed units.
|The Necron warriors, i have 30 total (2 squads of 15) with plans to add more|
|Tomb Spyder complete with victim, he is one of my "Tax" units that i will discuss later.|
|The Monolith, risen from the snow|
|The Lychguard, complete with guardian shield. Another "Tax" unit but more useful than the spyder|
|The Scarabs, it seemed right that the Eldar, the old enemy, should be the victims on my model's bases|
|The Immortals, a unit with Tesla Carbines is planned|
In terms of tactics i use a Decurion Detachment with Reclamation legion and Canoptek Harvest mainly for the army wide 4+ reanimation saves and the ability to make my wraiths even harder to kill with their 3+ invulnerable save bolstered by the 4+ reanimation. This means i have to take some "tax" units, units i wouldn't usually take as i don't see them as the best choice. These units are taken for the 4+ reanimation save (and army wide move through cover and relentless). The Tomb Sypder falls into this category and the so do the Lychguard as the Wraiths do their job far better. I rank the Lychguard over the spyder mainly because they have a 3+ Invulnerable and a 4+ reanimation making them very hard to kill.
The Nightbringer falls into the same category, but only just. There have been games where he has preformed extremely well and others where he dies first or second turn and doesn't do much at all, i am looking to replace him either with 15 more warriors or a 2nd Monolith and am currently seeking advise on which unit to choose.
Before i go i feel the need to display my Necron lore cred, to show that my opening paragraph where i praise the 3rd edition book isn't just empty words.
