fluger Posted February 18, 2015 Report Share Posted February 18, 2015 Been trying to figure out how to do walking 'Crons in a way that I think works well and still has lots of tools. Then I hit upon AbusePuppy's article on 3++ (link: http://www.3plusplus.net/2015/02/little-pieces-necron-sub-assemblies-for-consideration/). Here's the part that jumped out at me. 735ptsIllumnor Szeras20 Warriors w/Ghost Ark20 Warriors Filling all of your basic requirements and able to be trimmed down significantly as needed, this setup is reminiscent of (and compatible with) the one using Zandrekh earlier, but the goal here is very different- rather than a Swiss Army Knife of tools to hand out as part of a Reclamation Legion, the strength here is of resilience; Szeras gives both units a 4+ RP roll with his bubble while sitting inside the Ghost Ark as well as handing out a probably-relevant bonus to one of the units. (T5 and BS5 are both especially nice.) He also throws a high-strength shot downrange, unusual for an HQ choice, and the Ark itself is quite tough and Objective Secured while simultaneously adding some additional resilience to the troop squads. Even Wave Serpents will be hard-pressed to drag units like these down, especially as they press the attack and start forcing Jinks. So I took that piece and pasted it into some of my other ideas and came up with THIS: Illuminor Szeras: 110 20 Warriors: 260 + 105 Ghost Ark 20 Warriors: 260 + 130 Night Scythe 10 Immortals: 170 + 130 Guass Blasters Night Scythe Triarch Stalker: 125 Triarch Stalker: 125 4 Wraiths: 172 Whip Coils 4 Heavy Destroyers: 200 4 Heavy Destroyers: 200 1987 pts That's a basic CAD right there, and it's 13 pts short of 2k, but I really like how it all feels. The Night Scythes will most likely be empty. They provide anti air and good shooting overall. The main force sets up with Szeras in the Ghost Ark flanked by the Warrior units with the Immortals in front of him. Stalkers on either flank of the warriors with the Destroyers near by them. Wraiths probably hold back and act as counter-chargers rather than outright assaulters (depends on situation of course). 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
