We’ve received a cool Necron list, that bears a startling similarity to that old favourite… Scarab Farm!
What will the guys think. Does this build still have the chops for 6th Edition 40K?
Well for starters this list is illegal. Lost of people think that double force org just doubles the maximums, but it’s in reality two separate force orgs. That means you’re also doubling your minimums as well. It’s good that this list has 4 troops, but in order to get 6 heavy supports you also need 2 HQ’s. Also, I’m pretty sure I sent you guys in some necron stuff a while ago.
You’re right, most people miss the fact that the Royal Court doesn’t take up an HQ slot, but instead you are allowed one Royal Court for each Necron Overlord in your army.
I’ll just say oops to that one!
Not playing at tournament level but against non-assault specialists I have found this scarabs to be a really effective tarpit unit. Wound allocation against multi-wound makes them suprisingly resilient in assault so long as you don’t hit s6. Also no one really want to throw characters or stuff like mega nobs in as the loss of the save can be really nasty.
I am not sure a whole scarab swarm works but a couple of units of 6 ish are cheap are require the opponent to deal with them.
With regard to killing evrything in range I have not found this to be a problem with orcs or scarabs – you cannot rely on the old get on in any more some you do have to line up and prepare your assaults more carefully – but I have never seen a unit fail to get models in range on the iniative pile in – I have had one nob fail but only as he had a powerfist and my opponent choose casualties that would prevent him getting in.
Wrote this as a fun list as spyders seem like a cool unit, I’m sure squeezing in a DL lord wouldn’t be too difficult. I do like the night fighting with this list though as I think it helps the spyders themselves survive, but think the guys made a good point how the farm might be stopped with the amount of firepower at 2k.
Also forgot the aegis defence line…
