Necron Defence Line list

Nick speaking,

Now that I have my Laser Cut Card Necron Defence Line finished, I suppose it's about time I incorporated it into one of my army lists. The main list I have been using lately is my Scythe Veil list, which so far has been performing really well, but has also seen a few areas where I think I can improve it further. The list currently looks like this...

Necron Scythe Veil list (v2)

HQ
1 x Necron Overlord/Warscythe/MSS/Weave/Labyrinth/Orb/Phase (225)
Royal Court:
1 x Cryptek/Abyssal Staff/Veil of Darkness (60)
1 x Cryptek/Voltaic Staff/Lighting Field (35)

TROOPS
8 x Necron Immortals/Gauss/Night Scythe (236)
8 x Necron Warriors/Ghost Ark (219) 
8 x Necron Warriors/Ghost Ark (219)
16 x Necron Warriors (208)

ELITES
5x Deathmarks (95)

FAST
6 x Wraiths/6x Whip coils (270)

HEAVY SUPPORT
1 x Annihilation Barge (90)
1 x Annihilation Barge (90)

1747 points

The idea of the list is to deploy the Wraiths up front with the Overlord and his Warriors behind them. The two Ghost Arks will then follow up behind them to help regenerate any loses on the Warrior blob. The two Annihilation Barges will support from the best positions they can find and the whole group pushes forward, with the Night Scythe and Deathmarks in reserve.


After playing a fair few games with the list, I have found the Warrior blob and Arks have come into conflicting roles, when I find myself with an objective in my deployment zone! I want to push them forward as described, but then I need to hold something back for the objective. I feel I need an extra unit of Warriors to hold back for this job and with the Defence Line worked into the list, this is where they will sit.

I plan to make room for the Defence Line by dropping the Deathmarks! I know Deathmarks are all the rage, but I have found that five of them don't really do much except to offer a distraction. Ten of them however are fantastic, but that will have to be for a different list. I have taken Mercer's advice and dropped my Ghost Ark Warriors down to five, to give me a few extra points for the additional Warrior unit I need. I started my Arks with ten Warriors and the dropped them down to eight, and that made no difference, so I am interested to see if the concept of the list works as well with just five Warriors in the Arks.

One less Immortal on the Scythe and a couple of extra Warriors on the blob clears up the last few odd points and I am ready to go. The list is centred more around the main Phalanx than the Night Scythe itself like it did when it first started off, so I feel a name change is also in order...
