There's been a few I've googled that basically was an Imperial Knight, using the unfished skull face. The main gun was the one from a... Doomsday Ark. I think that's the kit. It's a huge gun, perfect size for an Imperial Knight's arm.

If I had to stat out a Necron Knight, I'd probably make it standard armor 13/12/12 and give it Quantum Shielding, instead of the Ion Shield. Some massive Tesla or Gauss cannon, or maybe even the Death Ray. Shoulder mounted Gauss Blaster or Telsa Blaster (same optoins as an Immortal). And replace the Destroyer Chainblade with a special Destroyer Warscythe.

The problem with quantum shielding is that the rules don't increase the front and sides by 2 anymore, they just make make them a flat 13 front and side. So at best, quantum shielding would just make it 13/13/12.
Well, there's always a simple Invul Save. Nothing fancy about it, still suits even a Necron unit. Phase Shifter on a large scale.

In complete honesty, I can't picture Necrons using a giant, humanoid shaped walker, ala the Imp. Knight. I think it would be more Canoptek themed and be more of a giant insectoid.
EH. Necrons are humanoid in shape, so it's possible. Honestly, they already have the Obelisk, so they really don't NEED a Knight. Anti-grav is their preferred option. If you wanted a walker, a Brass Scorpion might be a good starting point.

That said, the suggested weapon armaments would make for a good substitute for a Necron-themed Knight. A Destroyer Warscythe would need some work though as the biggest selling point for those would be the Armorbane rule, which is nullified by being a D weapon. Perhaps it can have a sweep attack sort of rule, in that it trades all of its attacks for one sweep attack, but it hits all models in base contact within it's forward arc.
A destroyer chainblade is more then good to count as a necron scythe, really. Not much more that it needs.
