Ok, its been a long time, and this wont be competitive but I only really play my 11 year old brothers Necron force anyway so the army is more for flavour than anything, a slavers army. Heavy on the anti infantry, with just enough heavy fire power to keep the tanks at bay long enough to secure my cargo.

Archon, Shadowfield, Huskblade, 125
4 Incubi, 80
Venom, 55

5 Trueborn, 55
Venom, 55

10 Kabilite Warriors, 80
Raider, Dark Lance, Splinter Rack, 75

10 Kabilite Warriors, 80
Raider, Dark Lance, Splinter Rack, 75

5 Scourges, 2 Haywire Blasters, 100

Razorwing, Splinter Cannon, 140

Ravager, 3 Dark Lances, 125

Total 1045


So? What do you think?

Seeing that it isn't competitive, I suppose it doesn't really matter much what you take so long as the game is fun for the both of you. But I do have some thoughts.

A Night Scythe (if your brother has one) could be problematic since you have no AA. The Archon doesn't seem to bring much to the table, really. A glaive-wielding Succubus might be a better option and will shave a few points. Likewise, what is the purpose of the vanilla Trueborn? If they are simply a platform for the Venom, then might I suggest that you simply take Warriors or an empty Venom from Fast Attack? Both would shave more points off the list.

That's really all I have to offer. What do you expect to face in your brother's army?

Yeah, the Archon is more or less because he will expand his army and when he does I want that option. Same with the trueborn (which will take blasters when I have the points).

He does have a Scythe but its a doom Scythe. Its gunna be a problem anyway as well, due to the whole DE suck at AA thing. We just totalled his army up and its 1500 (well, 1400 but he has vanilla wraiths and a couple of other vanilla items that should bump it over) so Ill add those revisions.

What do you suggest for anti air?

Hey, fair enough.

You know, I've heard this from several people and while I understand that we have problems against lists with heavy air, I've never found one or two fliers to be a problem. I think that either a Razorwing or Voidraven would be sufficient to take down a single Scythe. Personally, I like a barebones Voidraven for light AA, but that's just me.

The way I see it, even though Necron craft have Living Metal, they're still only AV11. And a Doom Scythe is, what, 175-180 points? An equal trade off if you go the Bomber route. Or if you feel comfortable with that -1S from the Dark Lance (as opposed to the Void Lance), then opt for the Razorwing. My rolls tend to be iffy so I often go with the higher powered bit. Either way, a single metal croissant shouldn't be a problem.
