PLEASE HELP Compeditive Versus Necrons
A while ago I had a big match against da orks, and there were some really good suggestions. Well, so now I am playing a necron guy who plays the following armylist
1 Necron Lord w Res Orb + Nightshroud (I think, it’s the teleport wargear item)
120 Necron Warriors
It always goes the same, he drops the monolith into the middle of my lines and starts marching out warriors from it while 3 20 man sit tight on the objectives or advance as needed. The other three tend to walk out of the monolith. I have a bit of an issue especially in annihilation given that he has only 8 kill points at 2500, and during the base capture mission, he just sits 3 squads on his objective and sends the others in with the monolith. This gets very annoying very fast, especially as he knows what he is doing with his army/the good necron tactics.
6x Tactical Squad- 1410
5 Extra marines, Plasma Cannon, Combiplasma, Plasma Gun
Fast Attack- 420
2x Assault Squad
5 Extra Marines, Power Weapon, Combat Shield
Model, Combi Melta, Relic Blade, Jump Pack
Model, Jump Pack
Heavy Support- 375
Model, Siege Shield
Total 2500 pts
I know there is the traditional Hit them with CC units and they wont survive strategy versus Necrons, but the way he uses the monolith, every time there is a squad in CC he pulls it back, and there are always so many survivors from the large squads that it is still an effective unit, and even from 24” out fifteen or so flayers from the assaulted unit plus another thirty or so from the supporting unit and the monolith’s intrinsic firepower and that of the lord (assuming he wasn’t in CC where he is fairly effective) tend to make that tactic work pretty poorly in practice. So the list includes two counter strike units, but they are mainly for clearing objectives, not for fighting off my own.
Any thoughts/comments welcome.
All That is Gold Does Not Glitter
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
