Alright, i just have a couple of questions I'd like to get answers from the other Necron Players, so instead of combing every thread on all 38 pages of them, I figured I just start a new one.

1. How many of you play lists where your troops make up the smallest number of units in your army after HQ choices?

2. How many Necron Players, us Destroyer Lords?

3. Do you use any wargear besides Res Orbs, and VoD?

4. Do you follow army construction guidelines?'

5. Do you use one of the C'tan?

I have played a list with more Fast attack and Heavy support combined than Warriors basically alot of Deystroyers and Heavy Deystroyers and some Immortals with 20 warriors filling the mandatory 2 slots

2. How many Necron Players, us Destroyer Lords?

Id say a good 30% or even 40% but foot lords Id say are preferred as they travel with the Warriors

3. Do you use any wargear besides Res Orbs, and VoD?

Some players do a little bit
me myself stick to these 2 item there the best, but Im sure in the new codex coming out maybe next year maybe they will make upgrades all worth taking

4. Do you follow army construction guidelines?'

what do you mean
like do I follow what people suggest online?
If so then Id say not really I try out list see how they work and decide for myself

5. Do you use one of the C'tan?

Never I hate em Necrons are better off with out em fluff wise and game wise
if a player ignores your 300 point model and kills everything else you phase out by the time the Ctans killed maybe 1 unit around half his price

1. How many of you play lists where your troops make up the smallest number of units in your army after HQ choices?
-----Not Me (The troops are the most important slot for necrons in my opinion)

2. How many Necron Players, us Destroyer Lords?
-----not Me, although if i had a second lord i would

3. Do you use any wargear besides Res Orbs, and VoD?
-----Warscythe count?, dunno yet, depends on the enemies list i suppose ???

4. Do you follow army construction guidelines?'
-----Only FOC, and maybe sometimes what people tell me

5. Do you use one of the C'tan?
-----If i had the money, and be able to pin the arms, then i would use the nightbringer , although i would see whether its worth it after a few test games

In the Necron codex I take the absolute minimum # of warriors. They are wretched point expenditures by comparison with everything else

2. How many Necron Players, us Destroyer Lords?
No lords, period.

3. Do you use any wargear besides Res Orbs, and VoD?
No Lords to carry it.

4. Do you follow army construction guidelines?'
I write them

5. Do you use one of the C'tan?
The Deceiver.

Routinely.

2. How many Necron Players, us Destroyer Lords?
Destroyer lords are a mainstay for me

3. Do you use any wargear besides Res Orbs, and VoD?
Routinely. I rarely use either of those.

4. Do you follow army construction guidelines?'
Oh, hell no.

5. Do you use one of the C'tan?
Yes, though only in 2k+. Kinda expensive for low point games, and a bit on the cheesy side.

half/half

i have lists that are warrior heavy (if i use a C'Tan) and lists that use the minimum.

warscythe ???

i havent tried the VOD yet - i dont like the chances of landing on other units/off the board. with 5th edition changing the "deepstrike mishaps", i might start using it. i often use a resi orb though.

i follow 2 guidelines (for all my armies):

1) The FOC
2) WYSIWYG

anything goes after that

i use the nightnringer from time to time, but he/it never makes his points back unless it is a very large game. 5th ed might change that with the C'Tan RUNNING towards the enemy >

Really? In my experience, the nightbringer performs well...if nothing else, as a great sponge for firepower. Not much short of massed railguns actually poses a threat to him via shooting...and honestly, against most melee opponents, he makes out pretty good as well.

i guess i must be unlucky......

in fact, in my last game with him, i charged a unit of 5 chaos terminators (all had powerfists/chainfists) - i killed ONE of the beggers and they took down my nightbringer - though i did kill them when he exploded >

with the addition of run, i might start using him again. most of the armies in my gaming group favour manoeverability (sp ???) over power so my C'Tan usually end up being led around in circles.


though in the same vein, my destroyer lord with warscythe has killed more tanks than he has infantry models (and he has killed 2 tanks to date ) accross about 5/6 games >

I don't. I field a minimum of 3 and sometimes more squads of Warriors.

2. How many Necron Players, use Destroyer Lords?
Don't leave home without one.

Quote:
3. Do you use any wargear besides Res Orbs, and VoD?
Yes - I find the phase shifter is handy. Invulnerable saves can be useful.

Quote:
4. Do you follow army construction guidelines?
Not sure what you mean. I use the Codex and a standard force org. My only other guidelines are "have a high phase out number", and "don't bother with Pariahs"...

Quote:
5. Do you use one of the C'tan?
Nope - don't own one, nor am i interested in owning one. I just don't think *gods* should be wandering around the battlefields of 40k... Apocalypse maybe - but in a standard battle? nah...
