Try a full scarab squad and a warsytche lord. The sytche lord will cut trough his saves while the scarabs seriously tarpit him and can deal some wounds too. The scarabs can also take the wounds from him.

I don't see how tbh, that sort of tar pit would work. At strength 8, with upwards of 7+ attacks (on average iirc) he can ID scythe through that chafe like nobody's business.

Edit- The warscyhte lord stands a moderate chance, but if he singles out him the first turn it's a tarpit that might last all of a turn and a half at best. XP

I say just ignore him as well. If he DS's in, then make a go of it with everyone, but unless mounted (which Necrons can still deal with) he's not mobile and can be shot at from range.

Could you clean up a bit your grammar please. It's hard to follow what you are typing with all the missing letters, word and lack of punctuation.

I kind of agree with USAFTACP, monolith can help, tomb spider for WWB too. Take advantage of the terrain to prevent him form rushing you and assaulting you.

Immobilising the LR so that he can't use it as a transport forcing him to go on foot, could help too.

Destroyer and heavy destroyer spam might work. Use your best mobile units and pummel him to death. Because you are moving 12 and shooting you should never end up in combat with Abbadon and his squad, and the Hevs should deal with the land raider on turn 1 too, which will slow his advance.

But i know abbadon can wipe out entire armies (in a planetstrike game he ripped apart my Tau, using combat to move quickly around the table DE style. He just deep-striked and bam, bam, bam, bam lol i didnt have a turn to shoot him :P)

Use a ctan. Target his powerfist terms to win combat and when they die off go for Abbandon. He can wound you on 4s and need 3s to hit also you have a 4+ save. If he manages 11 attacks 7-8 will hit 3-4 wound and 1-2 failed saves so you should be able to finish him off by 3rd round of combat.
