Newb here. Played 40K back in Rogue Trader days. Always meant to get back in and bought some models over the years but never jumped back in until now…. Eighth edition has awoken my Necrons from their *erm* 10-year slumber….
I want to use the models I bought back in the day and I’m hoping to get some advice on future purchases. I won’t be able to buy too much more and want to get things that will fit the theme/playstyle of what I’ve got so far.
Models I’ve got:
- 40 x warriors
- 4 x destroyers (plan to convert one to a heavy)
- 9 x scarabs
I realize the monolith is considered over-priced for what it does, but I own one and want to use it.
Playstyle-wise, I’m thinking something like a silver tide but with some teleporting in the mix. I was planning to focus on shooting instead of melee-oriented ‘crons.
Here’s some other random stuff that could help with any advice:
- I’ll be playing smallish casual games for the foreseeable future but would like to get models that synergize well (especially if I keep playing and end up in more competitive settings)
- I’m primarily a figure painter and less of a gamer so certain models appeal more than others, even if they’re not optimal
- I prefer the 3rd ed cthulhu-style ancient evil fluff and can’t really get behind the tomb kings in space theme. So I’m not a huge fan of models like the ghost ark and similar.
I’m thinking 10 immortals would be a safe next purchase. They could jump out of the ‘Lith or get teleported by a Deceiver (which I could convert up) or just advance up the field with an overlord.
I realize there’s not a lot of anti-tank or counter-charge in my current collection. For AT, maybe a Stalker? Especially as the to-hit bonus is a decent force multiplier for an infantry-heavy force.
From a modeling perspective, I’m really drawn to the tomb stalker and sentinel. Could either work with what I’ve got? Which bug would be better and why?
