Default Necron anti-armour. What do YOU use?

Well the topic is pretty self explanatory. What do you folks use as anti armour in your necron army? In 1000pts I field a warscythe lord, 28 warriors, 3 destroyers and a heavy destroyer and have somewhat of a tough time taking out vehicles, which isn't a good thing because my main opponent is half mech Orks. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Majusy, Gauss is much less reliable now you can't actually destroy vehicles with it...

Pretty much. Or Tomb Spyders if you can get them to CC.

Yes you can, it is just more difficult. Far from impossible.

9x tomb spyders, 4x pariahs, a lord w warscythe, and a Ctan in 2k.

The only difference for 1750 or 1500 in terms of tank killing is the pariahs are gone.

Only downside is that it does require getting into melee range, but sheer quantity helps with that.

Default Re: Necron anti-armour. What do YOU use?

5th edition rules kind of ruined gauss weapon's anti armor capability. Now, to destroy a vehicle, you have to destroy every weapon on it, immobilize it, and then get another weapon destroyed or immobilized roll. Fortunately, most ork vehicles (wartruks, wartraks, kans...) tend to have low-ish armor values, so that heavy destroyer wil really come in handy. The destroyers should be able to do some damage to the truks and traks, and the warriors can deal with the rest.

Hope this helps.

What sucks is trying to destroy a LRC or a venerable dread or something. There are never enough heavy destroyers to go around if the enemy brought more than one tank, and gauss weapons are effectively useless against either of those.

Ork vehicles also tend to be open topped, which negates half the glance problem and gives you at least a shot at a lucky roll, so gauss is definitely still useful against them.
