@ashesofthepope: you might need some immortals for firepower in your list, and maybe put a warscythe on the lord, very usefull but no firepower .

I would suggest that you lose the Pariahs (non-Necron, no WBB), and take extra Warriors to boost your Phase Out threshold.
Monoliths are a big point sink at anything less than 2000 pts and you would get more from an extra Lord with VoD and a unit of Immortals.

Cheers

well i actually won 2 games this weekend and was nothing close PO, on the other hand i picked up a lord, and i had thot about immortals in the past, and now i realize how reliable they can be, on the other hand the pariahs use the same gun as immortals and in CC when i wound there is no armor save witch is nice, but thanks for the input fellas il probable pick up 10 immortals this weekend

and just a quick one, i already have 1 monolith, for apocalypse would it be better for me the get the Phalanx or a pylon?
in apocalypse my buddy that runs chaos run pretty much nothing but special characters, its a pain

The phalanx is pretty nasty. I don't play necrons myself, but I've played against them in one game of apoc, and a few tourneys. The phalanx ability can pretty much mess up someone who doesn't really have a plan against it. It pretty much makes the standard "march straight up the middle and shoot the hell outta everything" necron army ridiculously hard to beat. A lord with a res orb in the middle, with congo lines of warriors spread out behind the "energy field" or whatever the hell it is that 2 monoliths make between them is a tough nut to crack. The 2 liths throw out the nasty blast templates and reduce the strenght of weapons shooting at the warriors, making them harder to kill by standard weapons, the lord provides the WBB that everyone hates, and the warriors shoot your infantry to pieces (atoms ) Then you have the rest of the crap the necrons get.

I'm not sure what kinda tricks the lord with a veil and the pariahs can pull off, but if he can teleport those bastards around too, then thats pretty sick. The first time I played necrons, I didn't know what to do with myself. As such, I got taken apart. Now that I've read their codex, I know that I'm going to blast their warriors till they phase out. And I think I can do that pretty well... 2 vindicators really help with that. A whirlwind and a plethora of melta and plasma weapons tend to help a little, too.

As such, I'm pretty sure sinking a lot of points into non-necron units isn't too wise. Especially seeing as how their warriors are already good. You're going to phase out pretty quickly if I blow pie plate sized chunks outta your warrior gun line, and all you got is 20 of them.

Other than that, what do you think of the post?

i picked up 10 immortals, played a 3500 point game, it was against black templars and i brutally raped, lost 8 warriors out of 60, 1 destroyer,3 wraiths, and the deceiver took out the masters of the chapter with him tho so it worked out very very well oh and i lost 3 pariahs

all and all it was a very good game for me im getting the hang on how to make the necrons be all they can be
