    Hey /tg/, I'm going to get myself a ~1500 point Necron army over christmas. I'm almost completely new playing the game (though I did collect space marines and tyranids when I was younger) and I was just wondering what you guys thought about my list:

    1 Imotekh the Stormlord
    1 C’tan Shard of the Nightbringer with Swarm of Spirit Dust and Transdimensional Thunderbolt
    1 Lychguard squad with Hyperphase Swords and Dispersion Shields (5 units)
    2 Immortal squads (10 units each)
    1 Deathmark squad (10 units)
    1 Doomsday Ark
    1 Ghost Ark

    For 1520 points total.

    I was thinking of maybe changing it to:

    1 Overlord upgraded with Phaeron, Warscythe, Tachyon Arrow and Phase Shifter
    Royal Court composed of 3 Crypteks – all Harbingers of Destruction with Gaze of Flame
    1 Lychguard squad with Hyperphase Swords and Dispersion Shields (5 units)
    2 Immortal squads (10 units each)
    1 Deathmark squad (10 units)
    2 Doomsday Arks
    1 Ghost Ark

    For 1550 points total.

    Which do you think would be better? What do you think of them as they stand?

    You'd be lucky for someone to let you play 20 points over, 50 points over and you have no chance. Just sayin'

    Scumbag like you who post misleading pictures to get attention sicken me. This is now Scottish Folds general.

    I currently have 3000+ pts of kittens and my 1500 list often gets into top 12 at local tournaments. Not only that, my Fold Captain won a few one-on-one fights against other players GK Grand Masters.

    Fair enough. Any idea where I can cut corners without taking away too much?

    drop the points a bit, make it like 9 immortals for each squad. should bring it to a more playable level, or get rid of the ghost ark because you have no units that can take it as a DT.

    you can get away with droping some immortals off the troop squads. it will make it more even.
    >> Anonymous 12/17/11(Sat)10:49 No.17245629
    you have no warrior squads why are you taking a ghost ark?
    >> Anonymous 12/17/11(Sat)10:49 No.17245631
    Ah, that would have been a massive cock up.

    Well if I trade the Ghost Ark for a Nightscythe that frees up 15 points. Then if I had 9 immortals per squad that'd leave me at 1501 points.
