I really wish there was a lord that made Flayed Ones Troops, then you could make a complete close combat Necron army...

We are playing 1850pts. Got 6 units of 5 Necron Warriors, because I had to fill out slots as you can only deploy 50% of your units in reserve.
Quick note- unless I misunderstand your list you only need 3 units of Warriors. A unit in a Dedicated Transport only counts as one unit for this purpose. (p. 124) So your two units of Lychguards are 2 choices, the Overlord and Court are another choice. (Or maybe 2 more choices, don't have the Necron book so not sure on that front.)
Anyway, you have 3, or at most 4 units in Reserve for the purposes of the 50% rule, not 6.
