I’m playing against necrons again soon , we’re going for a 500 point battle and a 1000 battle

Looking to do pure primaris as I’m no fan of of FB and do t need more plastic .
Also want to sneak redemptor dread in.

I’ve not used eliminators yet, but I’m hoping due to the small size that I might get to see some use and headshot a character.

Solid list, godid anti armour and horde, big issue is combat and saves, I understand you don’t like firstborn, sadly this means you have limited access to invun saves and other wargear. (I can see the relic but 5+vs3+ isn’t a match up.

Personally I would remove the plasma and either take plasma inceptors due to their toughness, wounds and mobility giving you the strength where you need it whilst staying out of combat or a vet squad designed as a bullet sponge with storm shields, this will also hopefully slow down wraith just enough for you to focus on the rest of the enemy, if you bunker 1 charge will ruin you in such a small game.

How do I get a 3+ invuln ? I thought it was 4 for a storm shield ? 3 vs 5 is big , but 5vs 4 not so much.

sorry I miss typed, it is 4, touchscreens are the BANE of the large man... lol

I still consider it a big difference in terms of saves and being inbuilt into a more durable model that doesn’t need baby sitting but the big reason is you need to be able to hit things back if you get stuck or it’s game over, this is the reason I run sargents with fists, the toll they take and the threat posed is allot more than the points you pay when suddenly that Dreadnought no longer wants to charge you, etc.
