Default Necron ? Good Army or No?

Hey everyone,

i posted something similar to this on the chaos forum, and well i wanted to put it on necrons as well.

Im a huge collector of tyranids, but im thinking about starting up a second army, and the only 2 things that i see as a nice army to play are Chaos Necrons and of course tyranids, but big problem if i was to start a second army i dont no which to pick, necrons or chaos

so can anyone tell me some cool stuff bout necrons ? thanks

Necrons are the oldest race in 40k. Humans, orks and eldar are all due to a war with the old ones as the old ones tried to make new races to fight the Necrons.

The void dragon is falsely worshipped as the ommnisiah and if it woke up all imperium technology with a machine spirit would turn (as the machine spirirt is meant to be part of the omnissiahs conciousness.

They self repair!

Their guns rip people apart layer by atom layer in a horrific way.

Just a few off the top of my head.

Fight the Necrons you mean?
Although, Orks do fight theirselves, so it makes just as much sense. :-P

Necrons are 'Dead 'Ard', not only as tough as Space Marines, with the same save, but the WBB (We'll Be Back) means they may stand up.

Necrons have some interesting units. like the Wraith, which can float through terrain. the Pariah, which can be very devastating when assaulting enemy psykers, who also have a weapon that can cut through invulnerable saves with ease. The tomb spyder can create new scarabs, and are very strong and tough.
There's a lot more about the necrons, but you can see their strengths and weaknesses in their codex, if you can get to see one.

Phase out isn't really a weakness. People seem to think it is, and use it as an excuse, but if you ever get down to that point, you were going to lose the game anyhow.

Necrons are incredibly powerful, and I'd put them as one of the more competitive armies out there. In the hands of a good player, they dont lose much, and do quite a bit of damage even when they do.

One of the Necron weakness is at low point they are so predictable it's not funny.

At 500 points The only thing you can field is 2 phalanx of 10 'crons and a Lord with RessOrb. At 1500 ponits you can have more variety.
