Necrons. Necrons everywhere in the sky. How do we deal with this?!

nothing?

You turn 360 degrees and walk away.

Works at many major tournaments!

Kill the shit on the table turn 1 with barrage weapons/alpha strike.

Win game before any necrons get on the table

So you walk back to the table?

I've only been here a year and I know this one. I believe it was a youtube or somesuch comment where a PS3 fanboy said the only reaction to the new XBox was to turn 360 degrees and walk away.

They make shit of them. Hydras less so than Vendettas but when teamed up with Officer of the Fleet (so you dick his reserves) you mangle what shows up first then they struggle to hurt you (bar Doom Scythes) and if you are forced to jink then go off the board and return to paste stuff the following turn.

Hydras want to arrive *after* the Crons have shown up or they'll be Target No. 1. Guard do just fine against Cron Air.

The other option is to ignore it with Hordes which is the approach I'm taking with SW and Chaos (not allied obviously).

>> No.20975547

>>20975474

The best counter to the croissant rodeo is IG Vendetta spam, Vendettas being hideously under-cost.

When we start getting more codex updates, we'll start seeing more options for weapons with Skyfire special rules (looking at you, Flakk missiles). This will swing the pendulum back away from Flyer heavy armies, though this could take a very long time thanks to GW's baffling decision to update one army every few months.

>Turn 360 degrees and walk straight into table.

This is a standard air-superiority tactic. The unexpected 360-degree "barrel roll" should keep the enemy air assets from drawing a bead on you. Spin into your sudden turn as fast and as hard as you can, and come out of it burning at full speed. Your opponent will be too confused by your first action to predict your next action: CRASHING DIRECTLY INTO THE TABLE, SCATTERING MODELS EVERYWHERE. The table overturned, the game continues on the floor. Roll an Invulnerability Save for every figure that failed to land upright on the floor; all figures failing this save and those not squarely on their bases are treated as if having suffered a Deep Strike Mishap, and are removed from play. Your new battlefield is the entire floor of the room you are in. Figures exiting the room somehow (through doorways, windows, HVAC vents, etc) leave the engagement zone. The overturned table counts as an Objective. Objects such as furniture count as terrain. Figures physically damaged or destroyed under the merciless feet of stumbling neckbeards are counted as destroyed by hellish environmental conditions, but their kill-points are not tallied. There is no longer a turn limit. The entire collection of WH40K figures of each participant now counts as their reserves. Continue your game as normal with these changes to the battlefield and engagement rules in effect.

Fun fact. They are updating a codex every other month now. Already confirmed as their 'new approach.' Was only off-set by the new amazing release of starter set.

This, while also shooting them out of the sky with Hordes and Hydras/Vendettas and their ilk. Transports and flyers got their balls ripped off and it feels ssssoooooo good.

That sounds like an Apocalypse game, actually.

>>20975113
The same way we deal with anything else that's in the air; WE BLOW IT OUT THE EMPEROR'S SKY WITH BULLETS.
And missiles.
And anything else that can aim for the sky.

Because hydras, that's why. DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA.
