Default A new Necron list for those like me on a budget

Hey Necron players out there. I'm a long time Marine player and I aspire to start a Necron force as all those metal bodies scream out cool. Plus the C'tan make me foam at the mouth

Aniways, so I am based in Australia and the Battleforce in my store contains the 28 warriors and 7 scarab bases, i have seen some that don't (have only 20 warriors and only 5 scarab bases :-\) so this list of 1000 points is based on only a battle force and a destroyer body lord. A very cheap start!

Necron Lord 210
Warscythe
Phase Shifter
Destoyer Body
Resurection Orb

7 Necron Immortals 196
(I will be converting these from normal warriors with a bit of green stuff and tubing etc etc.)

10 Necron Warriors 180
10 Necron Warriors 180

3 Destroyers 150
7 Scarab Bases 84

So what do you guys think?

No monolith? I've never seen a necron army without a monolith!

But this might be an advantage for you actually, because folks will think that your army is a pushover since it is so small. WBB changes things though.

With only 28 models though it is very cost effective, and should win you some battles. Go for it.

my army has no monolith, dunno where you see the necron armes, but not the same place as me, and there is 38 models there. seems a good force, but not a beginners if you are saying they should convert some immortals. now you need to play a few games and see how it goes , best way t see if the list is good or not.

My necron force doesnt have a monolith and i tend to win games.The only thing i dislike is the lord. To me he seems to much for a 1000pt battle i tend to take

Lord/warschtye
Phase Shifter
And something else which i cant remember as i have seemed to misplace my Codex.Then with the extra points buy more warriors to stop phase out coming quicker.

Thanks for all your positive replies I shall let the necron board no how this army fairs once I get it together.

Of course any other replies welcome as I am only a n00b necron player.

one thing, you may of heard about this, but to got more scarabs swarms cheaper, then put 3 on a base, and get more bases, that way you get more without buying warrior boxes

Thats not a bad way to start out, since its one battleforce box set, plust a destroyer lord. Me personally, i find that it is more useful to have your lords on foot, since it makes them less of a target, and I'd seriously think about one squad of 5 Immortals, and then converting all 8, but picking up a blister of immortals, so you can anchor your line with the additional fire power. Or you could just have one huge 10 squad, but 5 usually ends up working better.

Destroyer body is totally worth it..for the toughness bonus, if nothing else. However, mobility is at a premium in necron lists, so that aspect of it is also great.
