So..This will be a really long post...I am actually posting two lists here..I am torn between the two. I am not sure which is more viable. So after reading alot of different posts and some feedback on a previous post, here is my two options...please comment and leave feedback for me...thankyou.

GK (Main) and Necrons

HQ:
Coteaz 100 (warlord)
Overlord 210: WS, SW, MSS, Barge (Gauss Cannon)

Troops:
Henchman(9) 130: Assasin x4 Acolyte x5(PGx5)
GKSS(5) 205: Hammer x1 Psycannon x1 Raazorback (TLAC)
GKSS(5) 205: Hammer x1 Psycannon x1 Raazorback (TLAC)
Immortals 270: x10 Tesla Carbines, Night Scythe
Immortals 270: x10 Tesla Carbines, Night Scythe

Fast:
Canoptek Scarabs 90: x6

Heavy:
Dreadnought 135: TLAC x2 Psyammo
Dreadnought 135: TLAC x2 Psyammo

Aegis Defense Line 100: Quad Gun

So with this list, Coteaz and the henchman sit behind the ADL, with the PG shots and assasins, it should disuade people from outright attacking it directly or getting close, possibly putting it near or around a primary objective. GKSS run midfield to contest and hold and deal with midfield crap. Immortals go for the long backfield run in the scythes. The psydreads pop transports and act as AA. Scarabs deal with AV 14 tanks.


NEXT LIST :)


GK/IG

HQ:
Coteaz 100 (warlord)
Company Command Squad 167: PGx4 BPx1(Commander), Chimera (HF)

Troops:
Henchman(6) 86: Assasin x2 Acolyte x4(PGx5)
GKSS(5) 205: Halbred x1 Psycannon x1 Raazorback (TLAC)
GKSS(5) 205: Halbred x1 Psycannon x1 Raazorback (TLAC)
GKSS(5) 205: Halbred x1 Psycannon x1 Raazorback (TLAC)
Vet Squad 170: PGx3 Chimera (HF)
Vet Squad 170: PGx3 Chimera (HF)

Fast:
Stormraven 255: TLMM, Hurricane Bolters
Vendetta 140: HB sponsoons

Heavy:
Manticore 160


Soo..pretty different lists...

Coteaz and henchman..park on primary pbjective preferably in terrain and sit and wait it out or they can ride in the Stormraven and hit the backfield last minute objective. CCS moves up with vets issuing orders to take stuff out and grab/contest objectives. GKSS move midfield to backfield to take care of light armor and MEQ. AA defense in the form of the flyers. Menticore to deal with AV14 and blobs of mobs...

So..comments are welcome please!

The knight and guard one is better, only due to the knight and cron one being about as believable as an honest man in parliament

Both of these troop choices are illegal. You can only have 3 Warrior Acolytes plasma guns per war band.

Both are pretty good, but both need some tweaks.

This is largely fine, but I would prefer the GKSS be the large squads, and then you just default to 5 man Necron Warrior squads in the scythes- it's more important to have the large units giving you early presence on the board, so that's where your numbers should be invested. Also, the annihilation barge is better than the psyfledread, so I'd make that swap as well. As mentioned, the Henchmen squad is illegal, and is pretty inefficient anyways- DCA need a delivery vehicle, which you are lacking here, I'd probably swap these guys for Psykers or something else altogether.

CCB is a take it or leave it thing, but don't think that it's necessary.

This is really, really close to what I run. Drop the plasmaguns off the DCA and just make it a unit of 4 DCA + 2 Crusaders to go in the Raven. Take the second plasmavet squad, swap out for either melta or flamers, drop the chimera and then just run them as a unit to go in the vendetta.

I'd probably drop the 3rd GKSS squad and use the points to bring the other 2 up to 10 strong with psyammo- drop the ACs on the razorbacks if need be. Basically, both of these lists don't have the support for MSU squads (not many lists do), so you're better off with large squads.
