List Review

Here’s a TAC Necron list that I’m looking at taking to several local events.  Hope you’ll be able to do a review on the Show sometime.

 

HQ

Zahndrek and Oberyon

Destroyer Lord w/ Mind Shackle Scarabs and Sempiternal Weave

 

Royal Court:

Harbinger of Despair with Veil

 

Elites:

5x Deathmarks

 

Troops:

10x Tesla Immortals

5x Warriors w/ Night Scythe

5x Warriors w/ Night Scythe

 

Fast Attack

8x Scarabs

6x Wraiths, 3x Whipcoils

 

Heavy Support

2x Annihilation Barges w/ Tesla Cannons

3x Spyders no upgrades

 

Gameplan:

Zahndrekh starts with the Immortals, and Obyron stars with the Spyders.  After the spyders boost up the scarabs for a turn or two, Obyron veils them to shore up fights that I need to win.  Early pressure with the scarab swarm, Wraiths and the barges.  Deep disruption with the Death and Despair squad as well as the Night Scythes coming in.

    Reece did you see the new Martian Banshees? Holy crap do they look cool! Capitol is shaping up to be a wicked looking faction.

      Oh wow, those do looks sweet! Those and the Free Marines were my favorite units from before, still have them painted and up in the shop! The new ones looks WAAAAY cooler.

      I don’t like the new venusian Rangers though, the helmets are too skull like, the old ones were better, IMO.

        Agreed, I do think that there are two helmet options for the V Rangers, with the second being much more similar to the original.
