Default 1500ish first list [UPDATED]

Hey guys
Well after looking in the codex i came up with this list, ideally i want a few more warriors to make phase out harder, but this should do to start off. What do you fellas think?

HQ
Lord Resurrection orb, War scythe, Veil of darkness, phylactery, lightening feild = 190

Lord resurrection orb, 140

Elites
8 Immortals = 224
9 flayed ones = 168

Troops
10 warriors = 180
10 warriors = 180
10 warriors = 180

Heavy
Monolith = 235

12 necron models to phase out.

Quick note here, the points are off on the first lord. With the upgrades you have him having he would be at 250 points, not 190. Unfortunately Necron lords are limited to 100 points of wargear (excluding the cost of the war scythe weapon upgrade) so the max points a lord can come in at is 200 (210 with war scythe).

Well just got my Butt kicked using this list... my monolith did little and the immortals were next to useless. SO i think i may drop the immortals for some destroyers.... off from what i originally wanted my army to be, but the models are growing on me, i will update in a bit with a new list

UPDATED
HQ
Lord Resurrection orb, War Scythe 150

Lord Resurrection orb, War Scythe 150

Elites

9 flayed ones = 168

Troops
11 warriors = 198
11 warriors = 198
11 warriors = 198

Fast
4 Destroyers =200

Heavy
Monolith = 235

12 necron models to phase out.

Default Re: 1500ish first list [UPDATED]

My advice is to drop the monolith and bring back 10 immortals with a VoD lord. They can jump about hitting hard then dissapearing before any real damage is done back..

personally I would try and stick for 1 lord, having a second is almost another unit of warriiors or a unit of scarabs. Scarabs with disruption fields are both surprising anti tank and an excellent road blcok and are also lethal as my oppoent realised when 5 of them wiped 2 squads of eldar elites.

I am not too fond of flayed ones bit it depends on your experience.

If you want reliable AT take heavy destroyers in squads of 2-3 while expensive they are good for smaller tanks though i prefer 10 scarabs averaging 8 glances on a stationary vehicle.

Monoliths are really for 1750+ in my opinion as below they detract too much from PO and their teleport doesn't get the oppurtunities needed with extra WBB to be usefull.

Mmm. Ok thanks for the advice.
I played a game with this list last night also, it was a lot closer than before. I think the destroyers worked wonders! they were my 'squad of the match'. Perhaps swap out the flayed ones for 3 more destroyers, then possible swap out the 'lith for my immortals, maybe drop the second lord and give the first a VoD. Will try these ideas at a later date (weekend)

I kinda want one more squad of warriors in there... what do you guys think?

Looking at what you've posted, a solid 1500 list I've used previously has been this:

HQ:

1x Lord
w/ Rez Orb, Veil of Darkness


ELITE:

9x Immortals


TROOPS:

10x Warriors

10x Warriors

10x Warriors


FA:

5x Destroyers

5x Destroyers

Total: 1492

50 "Necrons" PO @ 12

It's a pretty generic list but unfortunately Necrons are kind of forced to use certain units due to their codex being so old.

I've also slightly switched it up to add some D Field Scarabs in there but that's up to you.

HQ:

1x Lord
w/ Rez Orb, Veil of Darkness


ELITE:

8x Immortals


TROOPS:

10x Warriors

10x Warriors

10x Warriors


FA:

4x Destroyers

4x Destroyers

8x Scarab Swarms
w/ D Fields

Total: 1492

47 "Necrons" PO @ 11

Looks quite good. For We'll be back reasons, I would split up the Heavy Destroyers into two squads. Besides that, solid list.
