Continuing from last thread where it went unnoticed.

Can anyone tell me if this is a decent tourney list? Rules are only 1 CAD, no super heavies, and no gargantuan creatures.

Necron CAD: 1849 points

*HQ*
Overlord; void reaper and phase shifter : 135
Cryptek; Chronometron, Staff of light: 90

*ELITE*
5 Lychguard; Dispersion shields and powerswords, Night Scythe transport: 280
5 Triarch Praetorians; Rods of the covenant: 140
Triarch Stalker; Twin-linked gauss cannon: 135

*TROOPS*
5 Immortals; Tesla carbines: 85
10 Warriors; Ghost ark transport: 235
20 warriors: 260

*FAST ATTACK*
3 Canoptek wraiths; Whip coils: 129
5 Canoptek scarabs: 100
3 Tomb blades; shield vanes: 60

*HEAVY SUPPORT*
Monolith: 200

The plan is to put the Lychguard and overlord in the nightscythe, run them to the enemy, survive a turn of shooting with 3++ and start wreaking havoc with the void reaper. My cryptek will stay with the 20 man blob to give them some sweet support and walk up with the stalker and gark to give them +1 bs and some healing should they need it. The praetorians and wraiths will keep the enemy from focusing on the blobs and the scarabs will try to eat any vehicles the blob doesn't want to shoot at. The monolith will move up on the side for some sweet artillery and to be generally pretty terrifying.

Good list or complete shit? I'm pretty terrible with list building

On the contrary, it is you who is missing something: evidence.
All forms of the machine cult, including the dark mech, are hoarders of technology, not likely to share it. Moreover, there is no evidence that the dark mech ever perfected graviton to become grav weaponry. Unless you can provide evidence they did, there is no reason for CSM have the option to take grav because they have no widespread access to it.

I ask because I've been making rules for the various '/tg/ Heresy' primarchs and legions. I'm balancing things as well as possible, but I'd like a more concrete system than the guesswork I'm doing now.

(Also just for the record, I realize how it's nearly impossible to calculate the actual points value of command benefits because of how much the size of games can vary, I'm more looking for a guide for calculating gear value, armor perk value, etc).

I'd be careful of mixing your shooty bits with melee ones, since you end up risking the shooty guys in a melee where they aren't helping and if you want the buffs from Jump Packs you can't get 12" move range. That's something you really need with inferno pistols.

>> No.49453573

That's largely what I've been doing, comparing the costs of various things throughout the codices to come up with trends of cost, IE 5 points per extra point of strength on a weapon, 15 points for AP3, 30 points for AP2, special rules like Blind, Concussive, etc costing 10 points on average.

The real hand ones to calculate are special rules like the ones the primarchs have. The fact that Horus costs the same in a 2000 point army as he does in a 4000 point army, despite the fact that his command benefits are applying to (roughly) double the number of models.

Looking at forgeworld's rules, it looks like they balanced the primarchs' point costs against a 2500-3000 point army, so that's what I've been using.

Voxes generally aren't worth it, since it's just a re-roll.

In the old days, when the Guard thing was to use an officer's Ld. when within 12" of them, voxes allowed units to use an officer's Ld. outside of this range (provided the officer's unit had a vox). I hope future releases makes it so that units with vox casters can receive orders from officers in a unit with a vox.

I have a LoC and pair of Princes, actually, but I'm quite a ways off from a sky host. Like, might as well be 100%.

>> No.49456343

>>49454814
Get the models for the decurion. +/- 1 on the Warpstorm is a life-saver, especially with a reroll from Fateweaver. The +1 Strength combined with a Locus of Conjuration makes Flickering Fire not a massive waste of Warp Charge. Always try to get Cursed Earth up. 4++ (reroll 1's) is pretty durable for a "horde" army, and it can get pretty silly when the Warpstorm Table and the Tzeentch Warlord trait combine to give your entire army a rerollable 2++.

Make sure to spread your dudes out and hide one or two from each unit outside LoS so that your units can't be wiped out. A single Horror is as effective of a Psyker as a ten-man squad.

Tailor what you summon to what you need. Bloodletters make for good area denial from MEQ's, Flesh Hounds and Daemonettes are good for dropping behind cover and assaulting infantry, Screamers are good if you need to bust vehicles. Bloodthirsters and their variants are pretty much the best Possession target.

If you don't already have the models for summoning, I'd just skip it and go for more Tzeentch powers. The discipline is pretty great with an effective +2 strength.

they aren't that precious, and you're affecting four special weapons instead of just two with your singular order

Honestly, I wish they let scions take platoons in troops and gave the HQ command squads a senior officer-equivalent with a second order. Then they might be able to spread the (quite excellent) orders around, instead of just hoarding them on the dudes with the most non-lasgun weapons.

Yea, I don't really have the plethora of extra models yet, so I guess I'll just avoid summoning for now. When I started daemons, summoning wasn't a thing, so I didn't exactly plan around needing 100 auxiliary models just in case.

One problem I had was that I forgot to run with a squad of summoned horrors and lost 9 to a goddamn grenade (luck was NOT on my side), so I get spreading them out. Never occurred to me that 1 horrors can do 20 horrors worth of work. I will definitely keep that in mind. That game though, I kinda got swarmed and flanked by a pair of trucks and a squad of koptas.

I'm trying to pad out the points for using the host at 1000 points, which is what we played. My Host formation is 810 points, and I think the only thing from the Decurion that will fit are furies.
