I don't really know how big your crusader squads are but I would first get some more Initiates and neophytes. They form the backbone of your army.

I agree, Rhinos are great, but if you're on a budget I'd go for a Predator Annihilator next; you really need some AT firepower.

Well so far i hav 9 initiates and 7 neophytes in 1 of my crusader squads, (im going to have 2 crusader squads altogether).

Im thinking of buying a Predator and equiping it with a lascannon and heavy bolter sponsons. I want to buy a brand new Venerable Drednought and equip it with a Lascannon aswell. Also im going to buy 2 Rhinos and maybe an assualt squad.

Plz give me some more strategic ideas so i can overwelm my friends Necron army when we verse in 2 months. Also some more Fast Attack options.

Fast attack options are :

-Land speeders I like these, they can dish out a decent amount of firepower when upgraded although it is often an all or nothing gamble

-Assult squads I like these they can be equipped to handle different opponents, their jump packs move moving a lot easier as well

-Attack bikes are similar to land speeders but I do not have a lot of experience with them.
