Default Opinions - Army Addition

So, been thinking of putting my Necrons on the field again for some friendly games and debating something. Let me start with what I currently own:

HQ
Lord x 1 (res orb foot model)

Elite
Immortals x 8

Troops
Warriors x 13
Warriors x 10

Fast Attack
Destroyers x 4
Scarabs x 9

Heavy Support
Tomb Spyder
Heavy Destroyer

Not all that impressive of an army but I may finally get around to fleshing this out more since waiting on a new codex for these guys may be a long wait indeed. Anyway, I have one un-assembled Destroyer and trying to decide if I should make him a Destroyer to give me a full unit of 5 or make a Destroyer Lord.

A full unit of Destroyers is a good thing and all around useful. A Destroyer Lord, however, will let me fill out more points and get me that fast moving IC that can cause some harm. I'm tempted to do the Lord for the chance to do some conversion, have to redo the arms at least, but I also want to make sure I make the "right" choice too, so seeking some opinions.

I would probably go with another Destroyer. You'll probably want to keep your lord with your warriors with a res orb. Small squads of warriors are relatively easy to put down, so you want them getting back up as much as possible and using a destroyer lord for that would be a waste.

I would go for a destroyer lord and give him a lightening field and warsytche and send him and the sacarabs screaming around the board dominating CC. A very fun tactic to use.

After that just so you have full squads of things or at least useful, Heavy destroyers arent' great on their own:
Immortals x2
Warriors x7
Destroyer x1
Scarab x1
Heavy destroyer x1
Monolith x1

Read that tactic with the Lord and Scarabs...sounds fun.

Yeah, I do plan to flesh out the other units slowly. I do have another Scarab base, just have to glue the suckers on it. Immortals will be conversions, same as my current ones, so getting another box of Warriors will finish them off and my Immortals. I've come to realize the Monolith is a must have, just have to get the cash for that expensive beast.

The thing with having 3 armies is it takes a long time to flesh them all out.

I am starting a new army as I think after 2 years of necrons not havng to contend with any others they don't need much fleshing out, though somehow in all that time I never got heavy destroyers or tomb spyders. I am considering buying the necrons a pylon and another lord just so I can take them to apoc before I get my guard sorted.
