So it's on to Fast Attack in this post, and first up is the Necron Destroyer. It has to be said that the Fast Attack slot is one of the most competitive choices in the current Codex along with Heavy Support. Destroyers will very often come out on top as the main Fast Attack choice due to their fast movement and sheer number of long distant shots!
Currently Destroyers are fifty points a model and come in unit sizes of three to five, with the We'll Be Back rules as they are you have to have two units within 6" to keep them coming back up. That's two Fast attack choices gone already! And of course, this senario applies to all units with WWB.
Putting the WWB rule aside for another post, What does the Necron Destroyer need from a new Codex? Like all Necrons they are currently over priced compared to the latest Codex releases, and a points reduction is the first step. I would also like to see some upgrade options! Maybe the option to upgrade every third model to a Heavy Destroyer with a unit size of up to six, or maybe nine models?
Overall the Destroyer is a great model, but does that mean it will get the nurf hammer in a new Codex?
So what do you think GW will have in store for the Destroyer?
