Default Advice; 1500pt Army

Hey all.. This is my ideal army list.. Tell me what you think; how can I improve it?

HQ
Necron Lord 200pts
-Resurrection Orb
-VoD
As you might have guessed, I plan on deepstriking my Lord, with the unit of immortals, near a likely target, and (hopefully) annihilating it, then moving on to another target, or running away. Depending on how many immortals are left.

Troops
10 Warriors 180pts
10 Warriors 180pts
10 Warriors 180pts
Too many? Not enough? Should I morph them into two units?


Elites

7 Immortals 196pts
As I mentioned with the lord, this unit will be deepstriking.

Fast
3 Destroyers 150pts
Will do what destroyers do, and hopefully kill some infantry.

7 Scarab Swarms 84pts
7 Scarab Swarms 84pts
I plan on locking some units in CC with these.

Heavy

3 Heavy Destroyer 195pts
Will be aiming for tanks and the like..

Tomb Spyder 55pts
I plan on keeping this spyder with the main body of my army (primarily warriors). I'm not sure if I'd go ahead with this, or just add another 3 warriors, or maybe give my scarabs disruption fields. What do you think?

Total:
Points 1504
Necrons 44
Phase Out: 11 models

30 Warriors @ 1500 is a fine number. More would not hurt but you shoulf be okay. I would keep them in the three squads. I have not found clumping them together to be very efficient.

I would drop a HDestroyer for a standard. 4 are a lot better than three, in my experience. I would then split your two remaining heavies into two selections. It is much harder to kill both that way as any overflown from one kill does not spread to the other...which means you may still get WBB.

Overall, I like it. Seems pretty well balanced to me.

This is how I use mine, so no real advice here.

Depends on the army you play when you decide if this is enough warriors or not. I would say no, because at 1500 points you would want more than 30 of these guys mainly to help against PO, but also because they alone are a force to be reconed with. Never underestimate what they can accomplish. Also consider raising the number in each squad, mainly so they will be less inclined to run away.


Elites

7 Immortals 196pts

I usually use 10, but 7 can dish out a lot as well

Fast

Keep em near the Tomb Spider.

7 Scarab Swarms 84pts

They will not kill much in CC, but they work wonders for tieing up units.

Heavy

I would deploy these close to the spider as well. Make sure you keep them far enough apart so that 2 of them will be a partial hit under a template.

Tomb Spyder 55pts

These are very important for us. Keep him near your warriors and destroyers. Be sure to remember his ability works up to a foot, so don't group your army too close around him.
