Necron 1k List

I've been wanting to run this guy ever since I kitbashed and painted him.  I'm finally going to get a chance.

I put together a 999 point list using the new 8th Edition rules.

Battalion Detachment

  • HQ - Destroyer Lord w/Warscythe and Phylactery
  • HQ - Cryptek
  • Troops - 17x Warriors
  • Troops - 17x Warriors
  • Troops - 5x Immortals w/Guass Blasters
  • Fast Attack - 3x Canoptek Scarabs
  • Fast Attack - 3x Canoptek Scarabs
  • Flyer - Night Scythe
The goal is to run the Destroyer Lord forward like a maniac and try to get into Combat ASAP.  He can hitch a ride in the Night Scythe due to being an Infantry unit.  The way Night Scythes work is that you can pop out an Infantry unit BEFORE the Night Scythe moves.  The plan is to fly forward 20"+ in the first turn and then drop the Destroyer Lord the following turn.  The Destroyer Lord then gets to move 10" and charge 2D6".  He'll certainly eat some Overwatch, but I'm thinking that I can charge more or less anything at will in the second turn.

The Warriors will simply walk forward with the Cryptek in between to provide a 5++ save against shooting and a +1 to Reanimation Protocol rolls.  The Scarabs run out front to disrupt enemy charges.  I definitely don't want the Warriors getting stuck in combat.

I'm hoping to play some games soon.
