Necron: Scythe Trial List @ 1850


Okay, so after all that whining about the destructibility of Scythes thanks to their much-expected mounting on flyer bases, I created a Scythe list anyway. Adding to this, I’ve violated the cardinal rule of Necron list building thus far in that I’ve not included any Crypteks in the list. Yes, I know their good, but they just didn’t seem to fit in here.

1 Orikan [165]

1 Destroyer Lord w/ Mindshackle Scarabs, Res Orb [175]

5 Immortals w/ Gauss Blasters [85]
1 Night Scythe [100]

5 Immortals w/ Gauss Blasters [85]
1 Night Scythe [100]

5 Immortals w/ Gauss Blasters [85]
1 Night Scythe [100]

5 Immortals w/ Gauss Blasters [85]
1 Night Scythe [100]

4 Wraiths w/ 2x Particle Caster, 1x Whip Coil [160]

4 Wraiths w/ 2x Particle Caster, 1x Whip Coil [160]

5 Tomb Blades w/ Twin-Linked Gauss Blasters [100]

1 Doom Scythe [175]

1 Doom Scythe [175]


Total 1850


So, explanation time.

Obviously the list is fast, as all the vehicles move up to 36” and everything else can deep strike. Orikan is there solely for his ability to manipulate reserve rolls for a turn, hopefully allowing me to hide off board against alpha strike lists while still being able to roll in with force and stun them down. Scythes will likely reserve in off my table board and zip 36” with Doom Scythes close behind T2. Wraiths and Destroyer Lord drop in (hopefully) around the same time and force my opponent to choose between taking a nasty wraith assault or getting creamed by Death Rays.

By T3 there should be a lot of stunning, killing and smacking going on. That’s the idea anyway.

I’ll make the caveat that this is pure theory hammer at this point and version 1.0 at that. Not really sure how to have the tomb blades fit in with everything, and having a solar pulse would be nice to provide and extra measure of cover for the vehicle T2.

Work in progress, like I said.
