eldar, once you get warp spiders, 3 squadswill pwn necrons. until you get spiders use a mix of cloaked rangers and guardians/darkreapers to hold off the warriors. fleet of foot also helps. oh, and haywire grenades are a must.
the orks definitley get my vote , i've just wiped the nec's off the planet in the main campaign ,( albeit with some help from a really nice guild member ) using these delightful chaps:lol:
Orks can crush any necron player cause they get up the tech tree quik. and wen i have 3 warriors they have 30 orks comin full pelt at me, But any way NECRONS RULE!!! ______________________________________________________________ Their Number Is [COLOR=seagreen][COLOR=green]Legion[/COLOR] [/COLOR] And Their Name Is [COLOR=green]Death[/COLOR] :cool: :cool: :cool:
Tau are the best because: -Hammerhead + Skyray completely own anything -Fire Warriors fry the troops -Greater Knarloc eats them!!! also it has 20,000 health so it is virtually invincible.
Sorry if this sounds like im trying to burn or flame you in anyway thats not my intent, but the greater Gnarlock in a normal non-campaign skirmish only has 8200 health. All units get a health boost if your playing the campaign on easy or normal so that may be why you thought it had 20,000.
i have to say eldar, the only army that ever beat my monolith, i was playing against a strategic player so they didnt bother trying to rush me, when i did get my lith restored i went into their base and started attacking the structures only to have them relocate right near my base, and fire warriors coming out of a webway gate at me completely wtfpwning me
dont choose best anit necron race in campaign cause enemy health has been decreased alot and ur ppls hp has increased alot sso u must choose thorugh skirmish not campaing
dude is this for dark crusade or TT...in dark crusade its chaos because standard marines can infiltrate, they have plasmas, frags and their heavy bolter just destroys the crons before they cna get close enough to do real harm.
Easy Choice is tau. Now i know your just gonna say flayed one spam then drop on tau base but...... if your a gd player with tau you use 5 squads of firewarriors, 1 pathfinder team, 1 broadside team and all ur leaders to defend then you use 3 teams of stealthsuits all with fusion guns and leader then have 5 krootox and a knarloc to attack the crons with you win everytime because the krootox can easily take out the Monolith and have tons of health to spare and ur stealthsuits take out those annoying detector units first then your free to kill all the crons at your will.
Tau. To me the two new races are best against each other. Though IG bassies really give necs a hard time. Just keep your techpriest alive and micro around with the guardsmen until you can build a mechanized command. For SM land speeder spam killing their scarabs and destroying summoning core and try to defeat them asap if possible.
