Ok, my friends and I are having a game soon, and it will be Necrons and Imperial Guard teamed together, forming a total of somewhere between 1500 - 2000pts (we're really very noobish, and have barely any models), against a Space Wolves army of equal size.

I have solely troops and heavy weapon squads, and no tanks. What can we do to beat them?

Conscripts are better at tarpiting powerfull units than they are at doing damage. The suggestion of loading on plasma gun is right on. I usually equip my command squads with 4 plasmagun and give the JO a plasma pistol. They can really hurt a squad of marines when they reach rapidfire range. Getting a Russ would also be wise, nothing scares MEQs more than a pie plate.

Conscripts are meat shields. They can't do anything better and they suck at everything else.

Only get them so the other team has to make target priority tests, if you do get them. Just try to outfire the space wolves, with your heavy/special weapons, and dont charge them in closecombat(IG sucks at it). Id try to get the necrons into close combat. Try to take out the heavy units first or the closer/fast moving units.

Get vehicules, especially heavy tanks. IG depends very, very, very much on them.

If you're using special characters, a dirty trick can be to park Yarrick right behind a mob of 50 conscripts. Let them take a charge... they'll lose combat, but that's fine, because with Yarrick around, they're not going anywhere. Your opponent has to kill every last one of the buggers... which should take at least four rounds for a Space Marine assault squad, and that's if they do very very well.

Yea Go Yarrick.

For your necrons Monoliths i would say 3. And let them cover all the troops you have got when they get into close combat then pullback and so on..

Tell me what MEQ means!
And also the destroyers are good for running around and taking side shots at tanks and use necrons to march up and use IG as fire support.

MEQ is marine equivalent,
basically every unit with similar stats to a marine is a MEQ.
so T4, save of 3.

Certain weapons are very good at destroying MEQ models, such as plasma.

For your partner, necrons should take advantage of their teleportation abilities - veil of darkness, monolith or both. Keeps them in range of their weapons and able to get away from assault. Otherwise, huge squads of warriors/destroyers/immortals + gauss weapons = dead everything! :grin:

Or they attack yarrick as he is an IC, then cutdown the conscripts. If your going to do this, put a regular commissar in the back.
