View Full Version : 1000pts. Space Marines VS. Necrons
28th February 2009, 16:44
So I am going up against Necrons in a 1000pt battle. Suggestions? Tips?
I currently have
3 10-man squads of Space Marines,'
1 5-man squad of Assault Marines with Jump Packs
1 5-man squad of Terminators
1 6-bike squad of Space marine Bikes
1 Space Marine Captain
1 Predator with twin-linked Lascannon and Sponson mounted Auto-cannons
I don't have my books with me as I'm at work, but trying to get a head start. I can look things up later if that will help.
Any suggestions on how to beat the bastards? from what I hear he'll be bringing 2 squads of warriors, a necron lord, and a squad of wraiths, the rest is unknown....

All I can give you is advice from my mistakes.First I deployed all my marines(i.e 2 tact squads, 1 commander, i 5-man snipe team), he aproaches with 24 necron standard guard(no clue what there called), my marines took alot of fire for a long time(ok amounts of cassualties), i fired back, took down a couple, only to have them respond next turn. My snipes got killed from concetrated fire, i did the most damage with my commander in assualt

Assault them, pure and simple. You have better Initiative so use it. Load up on power weapons and assualt special weapons, forget long range because he will pwn your power armoured rear.
So you have:
3 10-man squads of Space Marines,' give these sargeants power weapons and a melta or flamer, could pack a heavy weapon if you want to sit and shoot for a turn, but remember: assualt
1 5-man squad of Assault Marines with Jump Packs give sargeant power weapon or fist and a storm shield. Be very careful, these guys are gonna take a load of guass to the face, use cover.
1 5-man squad of Terminators What type? Assualt? Forget them, tacticle (power fists and storm bolter) forget them, use chaper and more quantity as necrons aren't going to stay down for long.
1 6-bike squad of Space marine Bikes normal bikers? Use these to harass the Destroyers, use them as a counter actually.
1 Space Marine Captain Put this guy in a Tactical assual-esq squad. Relic Blade and possibly storm shield for this guy if you can.
1 Dreadnaught um, maybe use missile launcher and assualt cannon if you can, high volume of shots and powerful krak missile to target normal troops and target faster Destroyers
1 Predator with twin-linked Lascannon and Sponson mounted heavy bolters I'd say leave it at home or if you must use it, then use las-cannon sponsoons as well. It's gonna die so make sure it gets 3 las-cannon shots off at the Monolith (because he probably will take one) first or second turn.
So: leave armour at home because he can and will destroy it.

He's leaving his Monolith at home for what it's worth...
