Yeah, its a C’Tan. Big whoop, wanna fight about it?



No its NOT a comp list. This is a me trying to figure out the cheapest way to make a semi-competitive list with the ton of warriors and scarabs I already have. More thoughts after the jump.





Imotekh [225]
Cryptek w/ VoD [65]
Cryptek w/ Lance [35]
Cryptek w/ Lance [35]
Cryptek w/ Lance [35]

10 Warriors [130]
10 Warriors [130]
10 Warriors [130]
10 Immortals [170]

C’Tan w/ Writhing Worldscape, Grand Illusion [260]

8 Scarabs [120]
8 Scarabs [120]
8 Scarabs [120]

2 Spyder [100]
2 Spyder [100]

TOTAL: 1775


The list lacks mobility, so its going to have to use setup shenanigans (Grand Illusion, 4+ Imotekh seize), obstruction shenanigans (Writhing Worldscape, Imotekh Lighting, Night Fight), and red herring shenanigans (Scarabs, Spyders, VoD Immortals) to disrupt my opponent and force him to leave my objective holding warriors alone.

At 2,000 pts and above this concept won’t work, as most other armies will be sporting 3x FOC choices and therefore can overcome a randomly immobilized tank or two, or a T1 Necron redeployment over to one board edge. Chances are they’ll also be able to overwhelm my gauss weapon’s glancing abilities through simple target saturation. At 1750, however, the competition is going to have less redundancy and less firepower to sweep away diversion units.

To be sure, the C’Tan is overcosted - even at this level- but his ability to redeploy the army as well as thwart enemy movement via dangerous terrain is pretty much the lynchpin to this list. My guess is he’ll be at his best hanging back near at least some kind of cover and trying to get between enemy assaulters and the Necron Warriors. Against dedicated assaulters, he’ll still likely get splattered, but better him than the ‘Crons.
