They aren't that much tougher, and Dark Reapers out range them.

AP3 them into oblivion, wipe out there warriors, phase them out.

Unfortunately for the Necrons, they are pretty easy to handle.

Reapers are death incarnate to necrons ;D

Also, if he takes a monolith, you're two best options are either a wraithlord or tankhunting fire dragons.

Or if you're mech, just ignore/range the Monolith the whole game .

My favorite units vs. 'crons are squadrons of starcannon walkers and multiple fireprisms. Watch him cry as you drop a str6 ap3 large blast on his lil warriors ;D.

Cheers!

My main tip when fighting necrons, is to focus on a target and eliminate it before moving on. If you cannot wipe a squad out in one shooting phase, don't bother. AP3 and such is nice and all, but when they can just get back up, it hardly matters. If you wipe out whole units at a time, they wont get WBB, besides a couple of situations.

Destroyers and Immortals are the heavy hitters of a necron list, most of the time. If he has them, it may be worth it to eliminate them as they will put you in a world of hurt. Necrons don't care if you play a Mechanized army, as even their basic rifle can shake and stun your tanks making them useless. I fight an eldar player who used a couple of dire avenger squads in wave serpents and three fire prisims before. No more then one prism fired a turn (due to my gauss attacks).

I'd say the advise already given is sound, try to take out whole units where possible to try and avoid WBB rolls. Have your reapers focus on any Destroyers or Heavy Destroyers first, they're mobile with nasty firepower, but their low model count also makes it easy for you to nuke a squad and prevent their WBB rolls.If he is taking a monolith just ignore it and stay away as best you can. Unless you have a Wraithlord right nearby to go assault, it's very difficult to take down and not that hard to avoid.

All very sound advice, but aside from destroyers a good mech player won't let your other gauss weapons touch his tanks . Take out anything fast first and waltz around his slow moving troops with ease IMO.

Cheers!

My best tip is if you are a mech eldar player target anything that can match your speed (destroyers, heavy destroyers, wraiths, scarabs) as these will match you in speed once these units are eliminated the necrons becom very slow and you can dictate where you want to fight. My only other concern would be the lord that can DS with immortals as this unit can be difficult to hide from let alone deal with at times.

Necron weaknesses;
1. Phase Out
2. Range
3. Points Cost
4. Combat

Strengths;
1. Gauss
2. WBB
3. MEQ

Use Close combat units like banshees to rip apart big squads of warriors, reapers/missile walkers/prisms to deal with warriors, and doom to do more damage in assault with weaker CC options (avengers with combat exarch, storm guardians, boost banshees).

Try to ignore monoliths, dragons aren't great against them (living metal) if you must fire at it, wraithguard, d-cannons, haywire grenades and linked prisms are the way to go.
