The Necron nobility make war in a codified and relentless fashion. Their command protocols crackle out across multi-dimensional spectra from carrier-wave projectors, compelling their semi-sentient soldiery into battle one overriding directive at a time. Temporary dimensional shielding flickers into being around the Necrons as they stand tall upon the battlefield like graven statues. Directive 1 : Each time an attack is made against this unit, if it did not make a Normal Move , Advance or Fall Back this battle round, this unit receives the benefit of Light Cover Directive 2 : Each time an enemy unit declares a charge against this unit, if this unit is not within Engagement Range of any enemy units, it can either Hold Steady or Set to Defend.
If it Sets to Defend, then until the end of the phase, it cannot fire Overwatch, but until the end of the next Fight phase , each time a model in that unit makes a melee attack, add 1 to that attacks hit roll. Arcing energies leap from one Necron unit to the next, lending speed to their limbs and causing their eye lenses to blaze. Directive 1 : Add 1" to the Move characteristic of models in this unit. Directive 2 : If this unit is performing an action , it can still make attacks with ranged weapons without that action failing.
Criss-cross fire leaps from the Necron ranks, forming a blazing corona of deadly energy from which there can be no escape. Directive 1 : Each time a model in this unit makes a ranged attack, on an unmodified wound roll of 6, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 1. Directive 2 : Each time a model in this unit makes a ranged attack that targets a unit within half range, the target does not receive the benefits of cover to its saving throw against that attack.
The Necrons strike with data-augmented accuracy, their murderous attacks as inescapable as the killing cold of space. Directive 1 : Each time a model in this unit makes a melee attack, on an unmodified wound roll of 6, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 1. Directive 2 : Each time a model in this unit makes a melee attack, if this unit made a charge move , was charged or performed a Heroic Intervention this turn, add 1 to that attacks Strength characteristic.
At a hissing static signal, nanoscarabs are released in boiling black clouds that whirl about the legions and effect constant repairs. Directive 1 : Each time this unit uses its Living Metal ability, each model in this unit regains 1 additional lost wound. Directive 2 : Each time you make Reanimation Protocol rolls for this unit, you can re-roll one of the dice.
The legions employ the strategies of their masters in perfect synchronicity, laying down hails of mechanically coordinated fire. This datasheet has Elites Battlefield Role.

Use this Stratagem at the start of your Movement phase. Remove that unit from the battlefield. Use this Stratagem in the Reinforcements step of your Movement phase. Some ways to help the durability of this unit would absolutely be helpful…. Speaking of Crypteks, now there is reason to take one of their silly Cryptek Arcana upgrades.
This specific upgrade does cost 25 points, which is pricey, but it gives out Light Cover to a Core unit near the Cryptek. Add in the Protocol of the Sudden Storm and a 6 inch pre-game move from Relentlessly Expansionist, and you have Skorpekhs that can move 16 inches on the first turn of the game.
With the Core keyword Skorpekh Destroyers become a completely new unit. They are faster, more durable, and hit harder in close combat through Core Keyword buffing aura and stratagems. Skorpeks were good before, but fell out of favor in many competitive Necron army lists due to the high points cost of Necron army building.
With these new buffs it is impossible to ignore the Skorpekh Destroyers when making a serious Necron army, but there still is the problem of what to take around them to ensure your army can stay on the board long enough to score points and let the Skorpekhs do to the killing.
If only there was a fast, and durable, unit that just got the Core Keyword also…. GW please start spelling things to make it easier for us 40k writers! Tags: 40K Necrons tactics. Email address:. About BugProletariat If my wife ever makes good on her threat to do an inventory of the models in my garage I'd have a real problem on my hands.

These newly painted ones arrived with issue 4 of Imperium Part Works Magazine. More scary tripod robots is a good thing. Funnily enough, the first time I painted Skopekh Destroyers they took me a week to complete. I managed to paint this new unit in half that time with distinguishable lack of quality to them.
