Default Starting a necron army - 1000 point army and patrol list

I'm just getting into 40k, and decided to go with crons after looking through all the races. They seem relatively light on the wallet with some conversions here and there, and an army of mechanical zombies in space is pretty damn cool.

After scanning a few other sites, as well as the tacticas and lists here, this is what I came up with:

Patrol:

10 Necron Warriors (180)
3 Destroyers (150)
1 Heavy Destroyer (65)

Total: 395 points

I'm not sure the heavy will really be needed against other 400 point armies though. Should it just be a Warrior and a normal Destroyer?

And my second list:

3x Destroyer (150)
3x Destroyer (150)
2x Heavy Destroyer (130)

10x Necron Warrior (180)
10x Necron Warrior (180)

1x Necron Lord with VoD, Res Orb, and Warscythe (210)

Total points: 1000 points

I've also thought about possibly outfitting the lord with a destroyer body, scythe, Phylactery, and either more CC/survivability wargear or just another destroyer/tomb spyder, but I'm not sure that it would be worth the cost of mobility and the res orb for my warriors.

What a time to loose my old 'Cron codex. >.

You might need more warriors in the second list, as now with the new rules, they are great units. I suggest to get some scarabs or tomb spider for Close Combat, or both.
I find that the Spyder hits, and kills on average at least one or 2 MEQ's per close combat turn, So they are well worth there money.

I would go out on this one and say, get rid of the heavy destroyer on Combat Patrol, and maybe something else, although i am not familiar with the rules, i'll try to find them. Thats it for now because im tired.

Made some revisions, added tomb spyders to both lists, and a couple more warriors to the 1000 point:


10 Necron Warriors (180)
3 Destroyers (150)
1 Tomb Spyder

Total: 385 points

3x Destroyer (150)
2x Heavy Destroyer (130)
2x Tomb Spyder (110)

12x Necron Warrior (216)
10x Necron Warrior (180)

1x Necron Lord with Res Orb, VoD and Warscythe (210)

Total: 996 Points

It's starting to bother me just how many points my Lord is taking up though. Is it something I should just get used to with necrons, or should I look at replacing the VoD with more units? Or is it really just a personal choice?
