Assembling first Necrons

I took a game break for today's post, to start assembling the Necron Battleforce I picked up after my 40K 6E demo last week. The older plastic Warriors have a load of annoying mold lines, but the models are pretty cool. Mold lines do take up a lot of time, but I was able to catch up on some 40K podcasts I haven't listened to in 6 months.



I have to say I am pretty impressed by the newer models I have put together so far (only the 1 sniper and Overlord, but they are awesome). The idea to start with this army as I build will be variety. The Necron model range is so awesome I don't see myself having much of a spam model list at all. It'll be more likely that I have 1 of each of a few units. I definitely know I want to get some Wraiths and a Flyer or two.


So far, this is the first army list that I have written for the Necrons. I already slightly changed it because I think I definitely want a Cryptek or two (shown). Any advice is appreciated. For me, balance is key... because I like the models and because I'm not sure spam is the way to go in 6th:

195 Overlord, command barge, warscythe, mindshackle
160 Destroyer Lord, weave, mindshackle
115 Royal Court x2, Destruction/Solar Pulse, Despair/Veil of Darkness
150 Triarch Stalker
095 5 Deathmarks
245 10 Warriors, Ghost Ark
130 10 Warriors
130 10 Warriors
165 5 Warriors, Night Scythe
195 5 Wraiths, 2 whip coils
175 Doomscythe
090 Annihilation Barge

Looks like a good list! Hope you not glueing the green rods in before painting them? Can become a nightmare to paint otherwise

I did glue them in, but I am also planning on painting them... Not leaving them clear green plastic.
