Default Starting Necrons - Advice on expanding force

So I sold some models that never saw much use from my other armies and I decided to pickup some necrons. I was going to go with just a battleforce to start but I took a look at the Necron Warrior Phalanx and I decided it was a better buy for me (I was planning on picking up a lord, more warriors and a monolith eventually anyways so why not save some money).

Now my question is what Units would you recommend I add to the set I bought to have a solid 2000 point list? The warrior phalanx as is sits at around 1700ish points depending on how you kit your lord so that leaves a need for at least 300 points. I'll more than likely trim down the number of other models as well so over 300 isn't a problem.

I was thinking of grabbing a C'tan since they look awesome (andd my pro painter friend is dying to paint one ) however I heard they are getting moved to Apoc? Any truth to the rumor?

First off the Phalanx was a great choice.

Second, you could take a C'Tan seeing as the codex update won't happen until 2011 so your pretty safe on using them, as for playability on them, I have mixed feelings on them, I mean they are really powerful but they never seem to make up their point cost for me.

Thirdly, to expand that force I would really recommend to read this article http://forums.tauonline.org/index.ph...c,26760.0.html It's a great starting article and It's how I chose my starting force.

If that doesn't help here is a pretty big collection of topics regarding other units and there tactics and whatnot to figure out how you would like to play your necrons http://forums.tauonline.org/index.ph...c,24269.0.html

Isn't the codex supposed to be coming out early next year? not 2011?

There is so much speculation I just choose which ever is the latest and go with that. I am just weird like that..
