The ‘A’ Team Magic Garage

In the famous TV programme a bunch of experts take a pile of old rubbish, lock themselves in a workshop and build a wonder machine to save the day.  My challenge to you is to take my randomly acquired Necron ingredients and come up with the best 1850 list you can.

All that you find in my workshop is an acetylene torch, some super glue and the following:

48 Warriors, 2 x Annihilation barges, 1 x Monolith, 3 x destroyers, 12 x Scarab bases, 1 x Destroyer Lord.  Assume any number of Characters, Crypteks, Lords and Overlords.

There is also a large box marked ‘Top Secret’. Inside it you will find a single mystery unit that costs 250 point or less  that you can choose from the codex.

What kind of juggernaut will smash through the balsa wood doors in the final scene? It’s up to you?

  1. Ok my best shot:

    Overlord [warscythe, mindshackle scarabs, tachyon arrow, phaeron] 165
    Royal Court [Lord – warscythe, res orb, mindshackle scarabs]
    [cryptek – harbringer of destruction, solar pulse] 145

    Destroyer Lord [warscythe, weave, mindshackle scarabs] 160

    5 Warriors 65
    5 Warriors 65
    5 Warriors 65
    20 Warriors 260

    10 Scarabs 150
    3 Destroyers [1 heavy cannon] 140
    6 Wraiths [3 whip coils, 1 particle caster] 245 *my special box unit*

    Monolith 200
    Annihilation Barge 90
    Annihilation Barge 90

    Total – 1840 (not sure what to spend the last 10pts on…)

    One 5 man squad houses the cryptek with pulse. The other 2 go in reserve. The destroyer lord runs with the wraiths or the destroyers depending on the situation. Lord and Overlord join the big unit of warriors.

  2. Trying to be different from Alex here is my take on it:-

    Nemesor Zahndrekh = 185
    Overlord: Phaeron, Warscythe, Tachyon Arrow, Mind Shackle Scarabs = 145
    Royal Court: 4 Crypteks, 1 with Aeon Stave & Chornometron, 1 with Eldritch Lance & Solar Pulse, 2 with Eldritch Lances = 165
    Royal Court: 4 Crypteks, 1 with Aeon Stave & Chornometron, 1 with Eldritch Lance & Solar Pulse, 2 with Eldritch Lances = 165

    20 Warriors = 260
    + Ghost Ark = 115 *my special box unit*
    5 Warriors = 65
    5 Warriors = 65
    5 Warriors = 65

    Destroyer: Heavy Gauss Cannon = 60
    Destroyer: Heavy Gauss Cannon = 60
    8 Scarabs = 120

    Monolith – 200
    Annihilation Barge – 90
    Annihilation Barge – 90

    Total = 1850

    Both Chronometron Cypteks join the 20 Warriors, as does Nemesor & the Overlord (like to see someone kill that unit in a hurry). Then 2 of each of the Lance Crypteks join one of the 5 Warriors.

  3. Thanks Neil. Very nice. In the current meta that’s not bad. Hide in the dark and shoot. By the time the light has come hopefully much of the enemy transports will be aflame and then the anti infantry firepower can do its work. Similar to my Jolly Toys list but I refuse to have minimised units so I have three x 16 warriors.
