With the bill load at work hitting maximum this week and next I don’t have the time I’d like to write up a few of the things that are on the back burner… I don’t even have time to get out of the office and record the goings on around the Capitol. I’ll be going in this weekend in order to have everything I have to turn in done and ready for session Monday morning.
Since I’m not able to create content right now, please enjoy some additional older content. My Necron HQ units… I have two Necron Lords one with a Staff of Light and another with A War Scythe. I also have both of the special characters for the Necron Army: The Deceiver and the NightBringer. I never use these two because my opponent either complain or just sink everything into killing them which makes for a boring game… I’ve found that the most useful HQ unit in a Necron army (with a standard point value of 1500) is a Lord with Resurrection Orb and Veil of Darkness. This set-up allows you to zap a squad around the table taking pot shots at units, the orb lets them stick around longer than they usually would. if you’re going to use the Veil to get close combat units to the enemy closer, it might be worth it to pay the extra 10 points and get a Warscythe, though the staff of light is just as good (with one extra attack) if you’re just fighting troops. Besides I’ve never been able to make Necron close combat units pay off…
If your opponent does let you use either of the C’tan units they can be a lot of fun. The Nightbringer can chew through entire units, I’ve used him to take out an entire Tau army actually! The Deceiver is a more subtle unit and using him successfully depends on how well you can exploit his special abilities… I’ve head people talk about doing it but never seen him used in such a manner successfully… I’d have to dig up the rulebook to be more clear on this… and it’s in the other room… If you’ve had great success running either of them, I’d love to hear how you go about doing it. The next Necron post will have my army list with it, so you can get an idea of how I play them.
Anyway enjoy the pictures! New content coming next week… The first post in this series is here.
