Default An idea...

I have recently been thinking (oh dear) and have been wondering if it would be possible, ultimately, to create a Necron army somewhat similar to the CIS (confederacy of independant systems) Droid army from Star Wars. Yes, I know its been done 1001 times already, but having thought about it the idea won't go away. It defintely won't be an immediate thing (I still have a 2000 pt Ork army on the go), but as a long term project it does interest me. What I would like to know is, does anyone have any suggestions for conversions? Glancing around the web, I have already encountered a problem: Should my Warriors and Flayed ones be B1 Battle Droids and B1 Grapple Droids or B2 Super Battle Droids and B2 Grapple Droids? (as I intend to have no immortals, they shall not be a problem). As for a scythe Lord/Pariahs, I was thinking of Greivous and 5 of is bodyguards, but what about a Deceiver - what could he be?
Also, does anyone have any tips when it comes to converting models such as these cheaply?
Please help if you are able to

-Will

Deciever... uh you can't do it. There is nothing in star wars that really meets him. A super jedi/sith.. wait no they are not that strong. I would say if you want to do this he will have to stay at home.

I love it. And if anything was a light saber it would be phase weapons.

If you were going to do immortals I would make them the B2. But if you aren't going to do immortals I would make warrriors all B2. The B1 are a little flimsy to be necron warriors. Warriors are hard to kill... B1s tend to die anytime something hits him. Gungans were killing them with ease once they got close. Imagine a gungan fighting the terminator... sorry Jar Jar this is one battle that the Governator is going to win .

Destroyers: What about B2s riding those hover things that B1s commonly use?
This thing. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Singl...erial_Platform

Or say they are droidekas. Have enough firepower, shield makes them harder to kill, move pretty quick...

Heavy destroyers: Modify one of the hover vehicles to have a much bigger blaster on it.

Scarabs: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Buzz_droid Those little annoying things match scarabs almost perfectly.

Monolith: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Multi-Troop_Transport

Its big enough, slow enough, hard enough to kill. Explains why a near infinte number of troops can come out. Has little lasers on it. Just needs a big cannon on the top.

My thoughts anyways.

Sadly, No Monolith as yet, but I could take Deceiver out for one out for a 'Lith... hmm.
My Current list is This one, but I could swap the Deceiver and Lightning field for a 'Lith, Spyder, Gaze of Flame and Phylactery... Nothing I can do with the last 5 pts
Is the GOF worth its pts?

Tomb spyder with the ranged weapon
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Dwarf_spider_droid

List looks decent. I'm not sure on GoF, I haven't played my crons in so long I forgot what that does.

Well, I have seen destroyer droids used yet. They are fast and tough, and share the name with a necron unit, hint its a destroyer .
