Earthquake! Revising my Necron List
So you may remember a few weeks ago I posted about a Tremorstaff list that I had come up with. After a few games, I've made some revisions to the list:
Necron Overlord: Warscythe on Catacomb Command Barge Necron Overlord: Warscythe on Catacomb Command Barge Royal Court: 2x Harbinger of Transmogrification (one with Seismic Cruicible), Harbinger of Destruction with Solar Pulse, Harbinger of Despair with Veil of Darkness Royal Court: 2x Harbinger of Transmogrification (one with Seismic Cruicible), Harbinger of Destruction with Solar Pulse, Harbinger of Despair with Veil of Darkness
C'tan Shard: Swarm of Spirit Dust, Writhing Worldscape
10 Immortals: Tesla Carbines 10 Immortals: Tesla Carbines 5 Immortals: Tesla Carbines 5 Immortals: Tesla Carbines
Annihilation Barge Annihilation Barge Annihilation Barge
Alright, so from my previous list, I've dropped both the Stormlord and Orikan. Stormlord unfortunately doesn't add any utility, and 1/3 of the games, his night fight ends on turn 2, which turns him into 225 points of nothing. Orikan was fun to use, but he doesn't grant you a Royal Court and literally does nothing against deepstrike or reserve armies. I tried out Zahndrekh for a couple games, and while his ability is nice, he really wasn't earning his 185 points, especially when I could take a second Overlord on CCB.
My Royal Courts have been very powerful. The two units of 10 get the Veil of Darkness and Seismic Cruicble, while the smaller units of 5 get the Harbinger of Destruction and spare Harbingers of Transmogrification. My two larger units end up bubble wrapping the rest of the army, then when the enemy gets close enough to charge, they just pop across the board, denying the enemy the opportunity to fight my large vulnerable units in combat.
I'll be giving this a go on Thursday, but so far the tremorstaff list has been very effective.
